Mrs. Heena Shah:
“Anokhi” starring Rakesh Shah, directed by Arjav Trivedi, Bhumika Barot, Naksh Raj… a film about a spirited girl with incredible potential. A love story of a girl (special abled girl) who accidentally gets placed in a wheelchair just in the excitement of entering a new field of life – Anokhi (Bhumika Barot) is the story of a courageous, confident, loving and always smiling girl… Aryan (Arjav Trivedi) has a naughty and fun personality. The boy, who constantly inspires Anokhi, who always puts a smile on Anokhi’s face… who has a one-sided love for Anokhi and sees his beloved in a wheelchair from time to time and waters the plantation of dreams in her life. The story of the film is very emotional and heart touching. The performances of all the actors were fantastic.
I got a chance to watch this movie because of our school friend Pranav. Knew about his work for ‘special abled’ persons, but everyone present yesterday got to know about his tireless work for this “VOSAP” (voice of – special abled people) from pass.. Our friend Pranav. Desai is a hero in real life. Proud to be a friend of such a hero. Thanks Pranav.
The Anokhee movie event was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it.
The movie is excellent.
It is giving message to society that:
1) Nobody can guarantee that he or she is permanently Abled this world.
2) True love is not an attraction of the physical body, But it is a bonding between souls.

The movie isn’t boring, It has fun, laughter, comedy and also a great message for youth.
The concept and storyline of this movie are truly one-of-a-kind, blending elements of amusement, sentimentality, and inspiration into a cohesive whole. The movie communicates the message that disability can strike at any moment, highlights the struggles and setbacks that accompany such a life-altering event.
