Yahaan, starring Jimmy Sheirgill and Minissha Lamba, is an emotional movie portraying of what it’s like to fall in love in the state of Kashmir. The movie had released in 2005, and it was the Bollywood debut of both Sircar and Lamba.
Jimmy’s character Captain Aman has been posted in Kashmir. And upon reaching the place, one of the first things he utters (Wow!)-everyone loves the beauty of Kashmir. unfortunately, the other thing that often comes to mind when anyone mentions Kashmir is bitter atmosphere. While Jimmy’s Aman stands for the dissension and disruption of the state, Minissha’s character Adaa represents the innocent beauty of Kashmir.
Yahaan had not done much at the box office that time. However, 13 years after its release, the film’s impact is still solid. Yahaan is about Kashmir, but it is also about love.
What happens when a Muslim Kashmiri woman falls for a Hindu man, who’s also a captain of the Indian army? Is interesting.
One of the most memorable scenes of the film is when Adaa (Minissha) puts on a pair of jeans and a white sleeveless top, an attire that her people do not expect to see her in. Adaa’s happiness at owning the piece of cloth is precious. A few minutes into the movie, Adaa and Aman meet and everything crumbles into dust. In a twist of events, Aman is accused of fraternising with Shakeel (played by Yashpal Sharma), Adaa’s brother, who claims himself to be a jihadi.
Jakob Ihre’s work with the camera is pleasuring , capturing Kashmir at its best. There are gorgeous shots of Kashmir, looking peacefully into the camera as if it was made to be filmed. The songs are just as pretty, with lyrics by the incomparable Gulzar and music by Shantanu Moitra.
In short Shoojit sir created magic years before ,its time to see that the same magic will be created or not! once again
