Storyline

Baadshah Khan falls in love with Benazir, a member of a rival clan who has defeated him in a game of buzkashi. Benazir will not marry him unless he brings back the head of her father's killer, Habibullah, from India. He is successful, but he must return to India. He is then tragically separated from Benazir through a series of incidents that are only resolved years later with the arrival of his daughter, Menhdi, and his release from prison.

Its not an afghani film !!!!
20 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is not an afghani film!!!! Its a bollywood potboiler, starring all Indians - not one Afghani actor. Only a few scenes were shot in Afghanistan, during the rule of the Communist Dr Najibullah, when Kabul was a civilised city, not the rubble pile it has become today. Its a fun film, all fantasy and popcorn entertainment. It says nothing about afghans, however - its based on an old Indian conception of the Afghans and their attachment to honor and their word. Reality is of course very different.
