A film maker and a perfectionist, Geet Kumar have made "Aap Geet Ke Hain". He has completed his first feature film in seven years. "Aap Geet Ke Hain" has been welcomed by everyone who has watched it as an updated classic that is also a tribute to true stories of the rural Kashmiris.
It is a story about a simple village that slowly evolves into a gated community. In his lifetime, Geet Kumar has realized that his life is an endless cycle of failures, triumphs and tragedies.
The key character in this film is Mira, the daughter of Shahanullah (Nadeemuddin Siddiqui) and Rashid (Rashid Khan). When she reaches the age of sixteen, she is married off to Muhammad (Muhammad Imtiaz), a wealthy and old man who runs a house for retired soldiers. He brings her into his family and in the process, the two of them have the most tumultuous love-hate relationship. When they are separated, they travel around the village and meet many others like them.
Mira's father is said to be as cunning as her mother. In her parent's absence, Mira has learned all the habits of the highly disciplined mind of her elder brother Muhammad. She has been spoilt for choice and has lost out on certain opportunities. When she makes her debut at a concert, it is all because of her brother's advice. Mira never forgets to ask her brothers if there is any work.
Geet Kumar has provided a brilliant cameo for Salman Khan as a notorious highway robberyist. He is not only handsome but also believes in the power of music. He has sung in different bands like Manshwn Music and Kaal (which he will perform with Hum Shakti) so will he keep Mira and Muhammad busy for the duration of the film?
The title sequence provides a captivating and joyful song of a lone woman who wants to be free and live her life. In the journey towards freedom, she meets Geet Kumar (Sohail Khan) who takes her on a wild ride to beyond the horizon of their village.
The people of the village have witnessed real life encounters between Mira and Geet Kumar. She refers to the films she has seen and references a parallel line to her life and Geet's life. The role of Geet and Mira is also played by Aamir Khan, who has actually played several roles before; but who plays Geet's role with his trademark authority.
Geet Kumar is a good filmmaker who is on the brink of making a comeback and continues to keep the filmmaker's image intact. The next phase of his career may not be far off.
