Movie Info

After nearly a decade, an unexpected phone call shakes Dia out of her dance rehearsal in New York. Makarand, her teacher, her guru, is dying and she must return to Shamli town. The town where she grew up, the town where she learned to live and to dance. Also the town she left on an impulse, severing ties with her parents and her people. It is a poignant and troubled return; not only has her guru passed away but the institution that he so lovingly nurtured is in decay and under threat of demolition. Ajanta theatre, the once vibrant hub of the community, the place where Dia's fondest memories are embedded must now be brought down because the local political authorities feel it a waste of prime real estate. With the help of Doctor, the caretaker of Ajanta, Dia sets out on a mission to prevent the destruction and resurrect the spirit of Ajanta. In an atmosphere of mistrust, ridicule and active hostility, Dia picks up the gauntlet and agrees to achieve the near impossible task of putting together a theatrical production. She must also ensure that every member of the production is from Shamli town. She has only two months to prove her point or the bulldozers will be waiting.

    Beautiful Movie. Unfortunately there are really few in thousands of Bollywood Movies these days which are still on Demand.

    This is a pretty good movie if you like constant musical song, and dance numbers. Some of these Bollywood musicals really over do it, and this was one of them. I have to admit that I had to fast forward through most of the musical numbers. There isn't much depth here, and the plot is simple and a bit unrealistic....but this is definitely a well made, big budget film.

    Since it takes me much to watch a Movie which were made after "Millenium" I thought to give the Songs of the Movie atleast a Chance, second I heard it is something completely different and which was Madhuri`s last Movie. And atlast I am a Madhuri Fan. WOW there are no enough words to describe this beautiful piece of Candy. AND YES I agree it is something different, what I also really liked about the Movie the plot was not focused on Madhuri`S Character. All actors were involved. WOW One has to see it. Though lot of Tissues are required during the Laila Majnu Scene. Her last Movie, she left with Hungamaa The last bit from the song "Laila Majnu" is a message that shouldnt be ignored. I see this Movie in ten years still will be enjoyed by Fans. it is definate that I LOVE this Movie

    I got more than I expected when seeing this. It's really not bad. I personally love Madhuri. The choreography and soundtrack was splendid. I recommend this.
