Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye is a movie that leaves its viewer utterly confused, if not snoring, that is.

Maya ( Raima Sen ), a middle-class housewife in Delhi is stuck in the rut of her mundane, monotonous life that's limited to daily chores for her cold-hearted husband ( Arbaaz Khan ) and an adolescent daughter. One day, Maya comes to know of her husband's clandestine affair with another woman. Devastated, she speaks to her neighbour and the conversation sparks Maya's fantasy about an ideal man.

As she slips into repetitive rounds of day-dreams, Jai ( Randeep Hooda ), her ideal man, appears in various avatars - as a shirtless flautist, a cowboy, James Bond, a saxophone player and even as his eminence Mr. Amitabh Bachchan .

During her talks with this dream man, Maya is inspired to follow her heart and pursue her long-harboured dream of becoming a singer. She doesn't have to search far. There is a band in the neighborhood looking for a lead singer.

'Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye' begins well but keeps going in circles in the second half. It's hard to make out if the film's about following one's dream or about an ideal man (for it gives ample footage to Hooda) or about self discovery. Debutante director Madhureeta Anand is unable to give a definitive direction to the story. Neither does the struggle of the housewife - to find her own identity - comes through, nor is her transformation credibly brought out.

Raima Sen tries to do best with the role she is given while Randeep Hooda mostly indulges in pageantry in the name of acting. Arbaaz Khan does look convincing as a cheating husband (no allusions made here), while actors in the supporting roles - Shubhi Mehta, Suhasini Mulay, Neil Bhoopalam and Juhi Pandey - are just about okay.

The biggest flaw of 'Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye' is its convoluted story. After sparking your interest in the first half, the movie just lulls you to sleep. Perhaps to dream about your own ideal man or woman.

Dream On.

Rating: *1/2
