Yeh Khula Aasmaan revolves around Avinash, a young intelligent boy going through an extremely challenging phase of life due to his academic failures. He feels an immense vacuum which unfortunately his busy parents are unable to fill. In desperation he visits his Grandfather (Dadu) after several years.

Being the Best Kite Runner of his era, Dadu uses the 'kite' to subtly impart the lessons of life and prepares Avinash to face life. Under Dadu's company Avinash discovers many unexplored yet invaluable facets of life finding true Friendship, Love and Inspiration to lead a life full of hope, joy and success...........

Before all you readers out there start wondering why this reviewer has commented on the aviation pattern on a kite, let it be made clear at the outset that the Khula Aasmaan in the movie refers to a kite flying competition, winning which is supposedly helpful to restore the shattered confidence of the teenager protagonist.

Like the critically acclaimed Udaan, this film too seeks to explore the angst of a teenage boy, who is 'confused, depressed and stressed', (as the movie posters claim), but with dismal results. So we have Mumbai based teenager Avinash (Raj Tandon), who is depressed because his parents Kailash (Yashpal Sharma) and Rama (Manjusha Godse) are too busy with their own lives in London to even take his calls when he fails his IIT entrance exams. Giving up on his parents, Avinash takes the first train to Bhagalpur to be with his ailing grandfather Gulab Dadu (Raghubir Yadav), a kite flying champion in his youth, who is now living on his own with a faithful retainer and memories of his son, who has gone off to London without a backward glance.

Sensing the need to restore the teenager's confidence in himself, the doting grand-daddy ropes Avinash into a kite flying competition, which is supposedly quite a big deal in the small town that they live in. With ample moral support from his grandfather, a friend Govinda (Nitin Kerur) and his teenage crush Muskaan (Anya Anand), Avinash decides to enter the competition…of course; the end being quite predictable like most Hindi films, there is no need to elaborate further.

Raghubir Yadav puts in an honest performance as the lonely old man, who gets to relive his youth by training his grandson for the kite flying competition. Raj Tandon and Anya Anand too are passable, though the latter sometimes seems quite clueless about what expressions to sport on her pretty face during certain situations. What this reviewer cannot manage to figure out is the director's choice to cast Yashpal Sharma (with his oiled hair and a heavy North Indian accent) in the role of Kailash, a NRI businessman in London. Sharma might be the go-to guy when one needs someone to play a rustic goon or a political hood, but as a London based businessman, Sharma is extremely out of place.

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, Yeh Khula Aasmaan is like a kite without a string…..................................

Gitanjali Sinha -A university topper, a trained filmmaker, a gifted writer, a sensitive poet, an orator, and an award-winning singer, Gitanjali Sinha is many things rolled into one.
Having trained at the New York Film Academy, St. Martin’s College of Arts, London, and at Subhash Ghai’s Whistling Woods Film Institute in Mumbai, Gitanjali has always been passionate about making meaningful cinema. She decided very early on in her life to write, produce and direct movies that have a strong human element and pathos. “Cinema became my friend, philosopher and guide ever since I started understanding human relationships. I began identifying myself with characters and laughed and cried through them.” she says.
Since her childhood days, Gitanjali was interested in the creative field, especially performing arts. At the young age of 14, instructors at the Notre Dame Communication Centre, Patna, realized her potential and accepted her application for a course in Television Production. She followed that with a course in Radio Broadcasting and Photography, before graduating with honors in Communicative English with Media Studies from Patna University.
A short, but eventful career, in television and radio followed. She anchored 15 episodes of Indra Dhanush, a children’s program on Patna Doordarshan. After that, she anchored 50 episodes of Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahi, a game show based program that aired for almost two years, for Enadu Television (ETV). Gitanjali was also a member of the script committee at the State Institute of Educational Technology (SIET), Bihar. Her documentary film ‘Choti Si Asha’ on hearing impaired children was much appreciated. She was also selected as a Jury Member for the All India Video Festival held in Patna.
As a young filmmaker with clear ideas, Gitanjali wishes to keep making good cinema. Along these lines, the first film of her banner Gitanjali Creations, Yeh Khula Aasmaan has already created buzz having been internationally acclaimed and having received standing ovation at Haryana Film Festival.

Raj Tandon Profile- A 19 year old talented teenager, Raj Tandon is an accomplished dancer and adept at activities such as horse riding, swimming, shooting and is also a vivid gamer currently pursuing his B.Sc Gaming in Delhi. Raj has a fetish for fast cars and bikes with physical fitness being his passion. Like many other teenagers, Ranbir Kapoor and Leonardo De Caprio are his favorites, and given a chance he would love to go on a date with Kareena Kapoor and Angelina Jolie.
Raj has always dreamt of being a part of the entertainment industry since childhood.  Never did he imagine that he would get the opportunity to showcase his talent as an actor at such an early age. If it wasn’t for that one faithful day, while he was travelling in a BEST Bus where director Gitanjali Sinha spotted him and instantly finalized him as the star of her film. The travel definitely turned out to be a life turning journey when Gianjali Sinha offered him the role of Avinash in Yeh Khula Aasmaan with renowned actors Raghubir Yadav and Yashpal Sharma.
After playing the lead role in Yeh Khula Aasmaan, Raj plans to further his career in the entertainment industry and has also enrolled himself with the Roshan Taneja School in Mumbai. He wants to be part of films with fast cars and speed in complete Dhoom style, and hopes to be the next Ranbir Kapoor of Indian cinema.

Anya Anand Profile- A confident and passionate individual, Anya Anand has always aspired to take up law as her career path. Having excelled in her academics, Anya has also won several awards in elocutions, debates, dance, drama and other extra-curricular competitions.  But the acting bug bit this 17 year old talent at a very early age, with her debut film being the upcoming internationally acclaimed film Yeh Khula Aasmaan. 
Anya is an avid reader and believes to have sought inspiration from the famous novel “The Rage of Angels” by Sydney Sheldon and also novels by John Grisham. Anya is well travelled and her favorite holiday destination is the beautiful Europe, Paris and Switzerland being her all-time favorties. Being a shopaholic, her wardrobe consists of renowned brands such as Zara, Pramod and Mango. If an actor, she hopes to be the Kajol of Bollywood in future, while she considers Hrithik Roshan to be her Greek God. Her idea of unwinding is listening to music, shopping and reading. However, its dance that takes her to a different realm altogether.
After playing the role of Muskaan in Yeh Khula Aasman, although she yet aspires to be a lawyer someday, she hopes to explore opportunities in the entertainment as well as the law profession in her future.
