CAST & CREW
Apna Asmaan is a must for those guardians who attack their offspring forcefully to nurture their stereotypical/average longings.
The duo Ravi and Padmini ( Irrfan Khan and Shobhna) share an estranged wedlock because of their child's Buddhi (Dhruv Punjvani) intellectual handicap. He's autistic, and the couple falls flat to recognise Buddhi's genuine interest in art. However, they happen to be obsessed with healing his imperfection.
Worried about the fact that Buddhi isn't perfect his parents find a doctor, Dr. Sathya ( Anupam Kher) for him. The doctor guarantees to be an Almighty to him by vaccinating a brain booster to the unfortunate child who later turns into a whiz-kid. This happens however at a severe cost. He loses his smartness and turns into a stone-hearted creature who can't even recognise his parents now. Then, his parents yet again try to find doctor Sathya for the antidote of that brain booster. Soon after, his parents realise their mistake of transforming their son and not understanding his flair for art.
As the lead, Irrfan Khan acts in a commendable manner. However, at some points, he fails in being realistic. Dhruv the little star does full justice to the role, but his performance is exaggerated a bit. Shobhna is the emotional support of the movie. She performs efficiently and succeeds in her every attempt.
1. The movie deals with a relevant theme that makes it worthy.
2. The movie is infused with good music and songs.
What's not there?
1. The movie breaks into exaggerated mush that literally hampers the actual theme.
2. The theme could have been presented well.
3. The screenplay isn't up to the mark.
A kind of a movie that's going to make you dwell on your own life.
