Aashayein (2010) *HQ*

Long stuck in the cans, Nagesh Kukunoor’s John Abraham starrer Aashayein is not a bad film but at the same time it doesn’t deserve to be called a good film either. Nagesh Kukunoor who has been having a bad run of sorts with his films since last two and a half years somehow misses the bus yet again. He had a paper thin plot in his hand which has been handled earlier before in more effective way but unimaginative writing mars all the good prospects of Aashayein down.

Cast: Abraham, Sonal Sehgal, Anaitha Nair

Rahul (John) is a compulsive gambler who has always been on the losing side but finally lady luck smiles and he wins a jackpot of Rs. 3 crore, no less! He throws a party for his close friends and proposes marriage to his long standing girlfriend Nafisa (Sonal Sehgal). While she accepts it, he collapses on the ground. Doctors diagnose him with lung cancer. Knowing well he has just 3 months in hands to leave, he doesn’t want to make a mess of Nafisa’s life so leaves her leaving behind a huge bagful of money. He heads straight to a hospice in Pondicherry to spend rest of his remaining days.

After donating big fat sum to the hospice head (Prateeksha Lonkar) Rahul gets to stay in the hospice but on the condition that he will follow their rules. Out there he encounters a retired banker, G. Parthasarthi (Girish Karnad) who has lost his ability to speak, a middle-aged, high class, ex-prostitute, Madhu (Farida Jalal) who has AIDS, a 17-year-old rude but high spirited cancer patient, Padma (Anaitha Nair) and a child, Govinda (Ashwin Chitale, the wonder boy from Marathi film Shwaas), who loves comics, and possess spiritual powers. How Rahul’s approach towards his journey towards his inevitable death changes and how he manages to make a vital difference in the lives of all those he encounters at the hospice forms the rest part of the film.
