This is the journey of a woman, who goes from being an average, middle-class girl to a princess and finally an acclaimed writer. Spread over several decades and three cities. He looks at how she faces obstacles in her life and the lessons
she draws from the hardships that endure her.
This is the story of Alia Patrick (Manjari Fadnnis) and her journey that begins in Udaipur. Born in a traditional Catholic family, she faces sexism from the beginning of her parents. In college, she falls in love with Alex (Himansh Kohli) and thinks she will last forever. However, they marry her to a Rajasthani Prince Vikram Pratap Singh (Ashutosh Rana) for money. A violent psychopath, he is a masochist of textbooks with a history of abuse among his family. A little unhappy, Alia still gives all her freedom and is content to sit at home. But when she is forced to abort her unborn daughter, she leaves the haveli with the help of a close aide Lakshmi (Supriya Pathak), and flees to Mumbai. Here she gives birth to her little girl and returns on a new sheet as she begins a journey as a writer who will eventually take her to New York. She has another chance at love in the form of NRI philanthropist Aditya Kapoor (Arbaaz Khan). But will she take it, or do the difficulties she faces in life make her too bitter to accept love?
In a clear case of the wave of films centered on women, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai has an overly simplistic approach to dealing with serious issues that concern women. In the process, he reduces the vast subject to end up just serving himself and ends up becoming nothing more than a shoddily film made, formula.
Actors like Ashutosh Rana and Supriya Pathak seem to be completely underutilized. As for Manjari Faddnis, it is sad to see so much wasted. Prem Chopra, as urdu purist editor who helps Alia, adds nothing to the film and is reduced to being used for comic relief.
