Set against a backdrop of immense political turmoil of the late 60s and 70s in the country, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi is the story of Siddharth (Kay Kay), Geeta (Chitrangda) and Vikram (Shiney Ahuja). Geeta is in love with Siddharth but politics is Siddharth's first love. Vikram, however, is in love with Geeta. While Siddharth joins the Naxal movement, Geeta marries off in England without giving up her love for Siddharth. Vikram meanwhile, becomes a fixer in the corridors of power in a country that is in the throes of political chaos. When Geeta eventually joins Siddharth in his movement and they fall into deep trouble, Vikram uses his connections to help Geeta out. But helping Siddharth lands Vikram on the wrong side of the law. Geeta is left with the choice of going with Siddharth or choosing the man who put his life on the line for her. The protagonists find themselves in situations that only the quirk of density could decide. Critically Acclaimed at 13 International Film Festivals

The story is revealed through letters exchanged between the three protagonists Siddharth, Geeta and Vikram. Everything unfolds through their eyes, anecdotes and views about the politically charged atmosphere in Eastern India during the first part of Indira Gandhi's Administration. Siddharth is from a multi cultural wealthy family. Geeta is from a large traditional south Indian family, but has studied abroad, has lived little in India. Vikram is the son of a Gandhian congressman who respects his father's ways, but constantly struggles to break free of his inheritance.
After graduation, Siddharth and Geeta decide to take part in the Naxalite uprising in Bihar. They start working amongst peasants fighting disease epidemics and constant persecution from Thakurs and the police. Meanwhile Vikram grows into a witty opportunist who deals with corrupt politicians and aristocrats. The backdrop perhaps contributes more to the film than the love story. The viewer is left with a memorable impression of the social make up of India in 70s in all its complexities. I won't write more about the story. It's an experience and deserves repeated viewings.
Ghalib's 'Hazaaron Khwahishein aisi' sung by Shubha Mudgal appears from time to time. It's simply the essence of the story distilled into a Gazal. Rest of the album is made of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Qawwalis and piercing aalaaps, another really good song at the end by Swanand Kirkire and Bihari folk songs.
By the way, the DVD cover here couldn't be more misleading. It might make one think they're ordering something like Dabang or Golmaal 6.
But i wouldn't buy the DVD, especially since i was able to watch the dvd version [...]
