IIT-JEE, HSC results, CET, etc with so many exams and so many results, students today are invariably pressurized directly and indirectly. Avinash (Raj Tandon) is one such student. Avinash who is a bright student, suddenly finds out that he has failed his IIT-JEE entrance exams. Disheartened, he calls his parents but with their busy schedule, they are unable to give him any support.

Loneliness starts eating him up from within, and he decides to leave for his grandfather’s place.Dadu Gulab (Raghuveer Yadav) is elated on seeing his grandson after almost 10 years. Dadu and Avinash start bonding and after a long time, Avinash feels like he has somebody in this world who cares for him. Here, he also finds a best friend in Govinda (Nitin Kerur) and the love of his life in Muskaan (Anya Anand).
Meanwhile, the pride and honour of Dadu, i.e., his 1959 Kite-Flying Championship record, is at stake when his opponent Mirza’s grandson threatens and challenges Avinash. The championship suddenly becomes a matter of family pride. Dadu, while making Avinash learn the importance of sportsmanship, also hopes that Avinash will regain his confidence through this competition.

Will Dadu be successful? Will Avinash’s parents realize their son’s need for love and encouragement? Will Avinash give up or will he fulfill his Dadu’s dreams? All these questions are answered in the course of the rest of the movie.

The story revolves around Avinash (Raj Tandon), who is going through a challenging phase of life due to his academic failure. He feels lonely and his busy parents are unable to make him feel better. In desperation, he visits his grandfather Dadu (Raghubir Yadav) . Being the kite runner of his era, Dadu subtly imparts lessons of life in Avinash’s life. How Avinash’s life changes is what Yeh Khula Aasmaan is all about.

Story Treatment:
It’s a predictable, yet engaging story of a youngster. The treatment is extremely subtle and emotional. The second half holds attention and kite has been extremely impactful as a metaphor. The high voltage drama with bit of romance induced in a teenager’s life is impressive. Few dull moments act as hindrance for this appealing
Star Cast:
Though Raj Tandon is the protagonist, Raghubir Yadav as Dadu steals the show. The actor gets into the skin of the character, making it very convincing. His affection is clearly visible and leaves an impact even after the film ends. Raj Tandon plays his part well and his innocence is clearly indicated in his natural performance.
Anya Anand does justice to her part, Yashpal Sharma only gets a small part to play, but essays his character with confidence, Manjusha Godse is upright.

Gitanjali Sinha has done justice to a sensitive subject. The director has also managed to induce emotions in the script, however, by the climax, the film becomes a bit too filmy. The lifestyle of a rural setup has been showcased beautifully. The film rides high on the thin line between the need of today’s world and truth of life.

Songs leave an impact and are rightly placed in the film. Ur Fur Kar and zindagi Bhi Patang compare life with a kite, and end up emphasizing on the title. While, Tum Mile is a romantic number which highlights teenage love. Cinematography is decent. Dialogues play a vital role in the film. The conversation between the grandfather and grandson is natural to the core.

Ups and downs:
Raghubir Yadav’s seamless performance as lovable Dadu can make you sit through the movie. Lack of big stars and the fact that it’s different from the regular masala films, might act as a setback for the film. If you want a high emotional dose this weekend, then we suggest you catch Yeh Khula Aasmaa

Final Word:
Yeh Khula Aasmaan is simple and sweet, but fails to leave a lasting impact, mainly because the story lacks the required punch. It is an unpolished product. However, it could be a decent DVD watch…..
