Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye – movie review

Fantasies are more real than reality


Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye, movie review

Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye is really a simple story, about the triumph of spirit over every odd. And the power of the creative imagination – if you can dream it, you can have it. But perhaps the hardest thing in the world is to dream. Madhureeta Anand in her debut directorial venture shows some style and good narrative style where single frame of the film appears attractive.

Being the story of Maya (Raima Sen) lives in New Delhi Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye. Maya is married to Vikram (Arbaaz Khan) and has a daughter Priya. Maya’s life is mundane and centers around her family. She always dreamed throughout these years of becoming a singer that never materialized.

One evening she overhears a conversation between her husband and another woman and realises that he’s having an affair. Her simple, family centric life around her breaks down and she realises how Vikram had slowly degenerated her confidence and self esteem in the past few years of their marriage. He stopped her from singing and abandoning all her dreams.

During a conversation with her neighbour Mrs Mathur, who is looking for an ideal tenant, she conjures up her fantasy man, Jai. To escape her reality Maya loses herself in her imagination and makes up Jai (Randeep Hooda) who goads her into fulfilling her dreams, who keeps reoccurring in her dreams in different avtars, she regains her confidence. He inspires her to pursue her ultimate dream of singing.

With the help of her neighbours, a young band, she embarks on realising her dreams. Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye!

Will her fantasy turn into reality or will reality hinder her dreams? Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye…

The macho dude Randeep Hooda stars in Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye, while Raima Sen, Arbaaz Khan and Juhi Pandey play their parts well. This movie is likely to appeal to a limited audience which carries some lessons in life to ‘go after your dreams and believe in yourself’.

Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye – Director’s Note:
All around us, there are forces, messages and people that tell us that dreaming is trouble, that to imagine things is insanity and that the more impossible the vision, the more unhappiness it will bring. So its best to stay where we are, carefully guarding our 4 by 4 cells of security, filled with ideas that we “know” and constantly reassuring ourselves by looking at other inmates of reality, we never dare to look up and see what is possible for fear of changing things. It’s the scariest experience to know that if you should step out of this well drawn confine, you will be faced with “not knowing”. But, but, but… this leap of faith can be made – because either you are really brave or are ignorant of the consequences that will follow.
