Storyline

Khwaab is a story about the birth of a dream, of ambition and the fierce passion to achieve that dream amidst unceasing tribulations. This intense personal journey is set in the larger, bureaucratic world of Indian sports. It illustrates why a country with a population of 1.2 billion people cannot produce medal-winning athletes. How sheer, raw talent gets wasted or destroyed by corrupt politicians and power hungry bureaucrats. Khwaab is the story of one such athlete and her struggle to succeed in the cut-throat, debauched and mired world of Indian sports. Written by Team Khwaabb

Pretentious and Trashy!
10 May 2014 | by brahmee123See all my reviews

I have never heard of this director before, but judging by the quality of his craft I'm assuming he's a schooler and this probably was his summer vacation project.

This film is far from being an original; The story is a cheap ripoff of the regular run of the mill sports oriented films. However, this isn't the worst yet. What makes this film pretentious and trashy is the performances . It was as if random people (non actors) were picked up and given lines to say in front of the camera. There are parts (which sadly comprised most of the film) where it was actually difficult to look at the screen coz the performances was so painful to watch.

There are films which are so bad they are fun to watch, for eg: Kanti Shah's Gunda, Ed Wood's Plan 9 etc. But this one is so bad it's just plain boring and painful to watch. I gave this film a 1 star because there is no option for 0.
