      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Sudhir Mishra trains an unflinchingly personal- political lens on the Emergency era through his hip, urban young leads, who go to Delhi University, do not attend classes, and dream of revolution... Aug 17, 2021 Full Review Sukanya Verma Rediff.com Sudhir Mishra's drama is overwhelming, memorable. Sep 21, 2023 Full Review Dipankar Sarkar Vague Visages Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi bears the unmistakable stamp of an artist at the very apogee of his creative prowess. Sep 21, 2023 Full Review Jimmy Cage Jimmy Cage Movie Reviews (YouTube) The finely textured narrative, which summarizes an entire decade full of political discord and corruption, but also full of friendship and love, using three fantastically developed characters, is remarkable and bold.

      Audience Member One of the best films ever to come out of bollywood. Great acting, its a shame not many people have watched it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member In a country where not much about emergency is taught in the school....this movie gave more insight than any of my so called history text book. A very beautifully directed movie that displays human actions as they are....not white, not black...but somewhere in between. There are no so called heroes and villains in the life...there are just people! I like the narration of the movie through the letter exchanged between the main character. The different issues faced by our society are bought up in a manner that makes one sit up and take notice. One of my fav dialogue, n its been a while since i have seen this movie so its not verbatim but the gist of it is..... There may be a distance of few hundred kms between Delhi and this place but it feels like there is a distance of few hundred years. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member A wonderful and wonderful acting. Acting in their first film, Chitrangada Singh, Kay Kay Menon and Shiny Ahuja produced a wonderful performance in this movie set at the time when India was facing a political turmoil during the emergency. An excellent story, wonderful direction and brilliant acting. It is one of the best Hindi movies ever made. It is not just a movie, it is a piece of brilliant art. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Just... spectacular. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member nice movie...a must watch who says Indian Cinema is not good Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Have seen the movie a few times and leaves me with a heavy heart each time..essentially a romance in times of big change in India...ivory itself is superb.. great direction matched by good performances..... Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
