Storyline

Samir Sahni is a farmer living with his mom, dad, wife, Rama, a young daughter, and his younger brother, Veer. Samir gets an offer to work in the U.K., and departs accordingly. He would like to settle there, and after doing so, would like his family to also join him. The years go by, and Samir keeps in touch with his family regularly. Then the Sahni family stop receiving any letters from him, and are anxious to know what has happened to him. Veer is asked to travel to U.K. to find out, and he does so. What he finds are tens of thousands of East Indians on fake passports, working for less than minimum wages, poor unhealthy conditions, fear of being deported, and paying half of their earnings to fellow East Indians who had got them here through the underground. Veer finds no sign of his brother, and sets out to investigate, only to find deceit, murder, and his very own life in danger. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Execllent Film
2 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Des Pardes is undoubtedly one of the best by Dev Anand . According to Box Office this was NavKetan's last hit film . Set in London and in a small village of India , this film was much ahead of its time .

Beautifully picturised songs , innovative screenplay and direction and an excellent style of story - telling . This film is centered around illegal immigration and exploitation of innocent villagers .

I recommend this film to all Dev Anand's fans and even to those people who have a taste of sensible films .

Most of the DVDs and VCDs released lately have cut many sequences from the film ( some important too) and have twisted the story a bit . But don't get disappointed , the film on DVD and VCD is great too.

Overall - My rating is 9 out of 10 . Dev Anand was superb ; Tina Munim

  • Great debut ; Prem Chopra , Ajit , Amjad Khan and Bindu - Too Good ;


Mehmood and Pran - Good support . Rest of the cast was reasonably well
