Karan is a lazy good-for-nothing who lives on the generated income of his father and elder brother at their family business. Karan's days: hang out with buddies and romance a woman named Romi. When he watches an action movie, he decides to enlist in the army with a friend, but basic training proves to be too much of a bother and he shortly abandons it, thus making him lose respect on the home front. Romi also stops respecting him. Karan decides he must re-join the army and show his family and Romi that he, too, is focused upon the path he has to take in this lifetime, but will he be resilient enough to carry out this task?

This film portrays a fictionalized account of the actions of 3 Punjab. As the film shows, 3 Punjab was based in Kargil and was among the first of the units to detect the Pakistani intrusion across the Line of Control; however, they did not actually capture "Peak 5179" or any other peak. Much of the on-screen unit's actions are inspired by the actions of various other battalions during the conflict. As the film credits the story as fiction based on fact and is largely truthful to the overall situation, the Army officially endorsed and approved the film. See more »
At 2:46:06, Karan is shown rock climbing with two trailing ropes loosely entangled. When the point of view changes to an overhead camera, the ropes are clearly far from being tangled. See more »
That boy is very confused.
Romila "Romi" Dutta:
That's his only problem, Dad. He just can't decide what he wants to do. His life doesn't have... What's it called? That...
Romila "Romi" Dutta:
Aim. That's the word. He has no aim in life - but the day he finds his calling, wait and watch how far he goes.

Farhan Akhtar has shown it once again! This man is amazingly creative and magical. His style is great and his efforts of making a movie which has something to be learnt from is fantastic. His movies are not just for entertainment, but also for inspiration. Lakshya is story of a boy who hasn't an aim, a LAKSHya in his life. He doesn't know what he wants to be or what he is good at. Karan Shergill played by Hrithik Roshan (a very sincere actor) is like any other person who wants to know what he wants to be. Inspired by his friend he applies for military school and joins it and then his journey of becoming a MAN from a BOY starts...
Hrithik Roshan: Great performance, just awesome. This actor is the brightest actor in Bollywood today. His performance in KMG was highly appreciated and this performance is on par with his KMG act.
Om Puri: great actor.. some of the really great dialogs were given to him.. He is a living legend.
Amitabh Bachchan: Great performance, His eyes and silence in the movie say a lot more than words.
Preity Zinta: good performance, the character wasn't well-sketched but still good efforts from her side in some of the scenes.
Sushant Singh: This actor is superb, one more under-rated great performance of him after his awesome acting in TLOBS.
Boman Irani: This man is good in everything. His telephone scene with Hrithik Roshan was great. One of the best scenes in the movie.
Overall: A very well-made movie. Great acting by almost everyone in the cast. Great choreography, great cinematography and fantastic direction. Keep it up Hrithik, Farhan and Ritesh (the young producer)
9.5/10 Almost perfect
