wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Yeh Khula Aasmaan is a partial success at an attempt to show how children succumb and lose their confidence to pressure from parents. Soon enough though, it contradicts itself and becomes a predictable story.

So-So by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...On the whole, YEH KHULA AASMAAN isn't perfect, but likeable nonetheless. A simple story that strikes a chord! ... full review

So-So by Rony Dcosta, Desi Martini ...The film is well intended and deals with not only students struggling with academic pressure but also about children leaving their old parents and settling abroad in search of the elusive green bucks. Sadly the weak execution makes sure that the film leaves us with no emotional impact.... full review

Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks ...No doubt, simplicity has its own beauty....but YEH KHULA AASMAAN remains too simple to be applauded from start to finish (lacking the beauty part) ... full review

Thumbs down by Shakti Salgaokar, DNA ...The execution is amateurish and shoddy. The plot takes the entire first-half to establish itself and the film completely drags on through the second half.... full review

Thumbs down by Vinayak Chakravorty, india today ...Raj Tandon makes a fine debut, and Raghuveer Yadav's Dadu is credibly essayed. The actors, though, can't save the tedious show.... full review

Thumbs down by Priyanka Ketkar, koimoi ...Gitanjali Sinha’s script deals with the pressures faced by today’s students but despite the seriousness of the topic, it hasn’t been given a proper treatment. The script also lacks any good dialogues. They are cheesy, silly and sound very archaic. The film has a very repetitive, clichéd feel to it.... full review

Thumbs down by Janhavi Samant, MiD DAY ...High on idealism but really low on skill... full review

Thumbs down Movie Talkies ...As far as the story is concerned, though it is pleasant enough, there is nothing to hold the viewer's attention or interest and teamed up with a predictable end, slow pace and stereotypical characters and preachy messages... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...Yeh Khula Aasmaan is a film stuck in limbo. Far too hackneyed and boring to make for an engaging watch... full review

Thumbs down by Preeti Arora, Rediff ...The most appropriate description which comes to mind is contrived melodrama that has random plot points strung together... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...But despite the film's core intentions, one cannot recommend this twisted moral-science of a lesson. The message is timely and important, but the film doesn't effectively communicate it.... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...Yeh Khula Aasmaan too predictable and boring.... full review

Thumbs down by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...The film unwinds at a lazy, sluggish pace which in itself wouldn't have been such a bad thing if it did create genuinely heart-warming moments without relying on melodrama or a sentimental overdose.... full review

Thumbs down by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...For a movie that's supposed to be inspirational, director (Gitanjali Sinha) gives us blah lines, lackluster story-telling - which is emotional at times, with an exhaustingly slow pace - weakening the script further.... full review
