Aashayein Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 1.5/5
AASHAYEIN falters and fails on the writing level.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 1.5/5
Aashayein. Intended as a heart-felt story, it is in fact a serious test of your patience.
Minty Tejpal (Mumbai Mirror) 0.5/5
Aashayein has to be one of the most depressing, incoherent films since a long sadiyan
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
Don’t go looking for popcorn stuff and Aashayein is sure to hold your attention with its gentle grace and dignity. Watch out for heart-warming performances by John Abraham and Anaitha Nair who lend credibility to the role of terminal patients celebrating life before the final salute.
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 1/5
On the whole, Aashayein may be a well-made film but its commercial prospects are bleak because it lacks entertainment value and runs on a single track.
Blessy Chettiar (DNA India) 1/5
Aashayein, whose release was delayed by almost two years, is so hopeless that you wish it had remained in the cans forever.
Saibal Chatterjee (NDTVMovies.com) 3/5
Aashayein is no Anand. However, in an era in which the once busy middle-of-the-road space has all but disappeared, the chemical engineer-turned-filmmaker’s 10th feature is a meaningful addition to a worthy tradition
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 1.5/5
While the filmmakers figured their supposedly perfect setting out, a story didn’t follow. Or it did. A part of it is fair endorsement for the Make A Wish Foundation.
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 1.5/5
There a few moments when your eyes well up, but it’s not enough in a two hour long film.
Aseem Chhabra (Rediff) 2.5/5
Aashayein works like many of Kukunoor’s successful films — Hyderabad Blues, Iqbal and Dor — unique stories that start with good intentions, but eventually the treatments amount to nothing spectacular.
K.K Rai (Stardust India) 1.5/5
Despite of superlative performance from John Abraham, the film fails to impress or entertain the audiences. Only saving grace is the track between Anaitha Nair and John Abraham, but that is not sufficient to sustain the flick at box office. A below average fare.
Pankaj Sabnani (Glamsham.com) 1.5/5
Aashayein doesn’t offer much hope. It only brings Nirashayein.
