    Udaan rating: 9 out of 10(Plaban wrote on 23 Jul 2010)

    Debutant director Vikramaditya Motwane has chosen a story which touches your heart and will stay in your memory for a long time.

    Rohan (Rajat Bermecha) gets expelled from his boarding school for misbehaviour and has to return home. A place he has not been to for a long time and to a person whom he would be meeting after eight years, his father (Ronit Roy). But he does not know that there is another person in the household, whom he hasn’t met yet. His step brother, from a marriage that his father had after his mother passed away, which he is not aware of.

    Rohan is writer at heart, and the way he recites his poems with passion you can feel a romantic relationship between the two. Who said you need a hero and heroine to have romance on screen. Watch Rohan recite his poems and you have the most beautiful form of romance.

    But his father is completely against it. As he wants his son to be like him, an engineer and join him in his business. Ronit Roy as a father is a strict disciplinarian, who does not let a slightest of deviation from order by either of his sons to go unpunished. He forces Rohan to give up his passion for poems and stories and join his factory and start engineering. And thats what Rohan does too. But his Uncle (Ram Kapoor) realises the real talent in him and keeps igniting the fire in him, so that it does not dry. Can Rohan get what he dreams of? Is his passion strong enough to face the opposition of his autocratic father? Does hope get a chance?

    Then there is the other kid in the household (Rohan’s step brother), Arjun who also faces the wrath of his father’s anger. Though the relationship between Rohan and Arjun doesn’t start off well it gradually grows into a beautiful bonding.
    I wont say more about the movie as that would kill the fin of watching. Go watch it to know more.

    Ronit Roy as a strict disciplinarian father, who thinks his decisions are the best, comes up with one of those performances that he would be remembered for.

    Ram Kapoor in a supporting role is effective.

    Manojit ‘Oye Lucky Lucky Oye’ Singh is lovable in his small cameo.

    But the person to watch out for is Rajat Bermecha. He has put in a compelling performance that deserves more than just an applause. A brilliant portrayal of a teenager who is made to bury his dreams.

    Watch out for some brilliant direction too from the debutant director.

    Amit Trivedi and Abhijeet Bhattacharya have again (after DEV D) come together to create some musical magic on screen.

    Special mention: Satyanshu Singh and Kumar Devanshu for the beautiful poetries and story in the movie.

    A must watch for all. It makes you admire the film industry... Its nothing sort of India’s world movie moment.
