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)

Beautiful movie
1 April 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Its a well made movie, Dev Anand's last such movie. It shows the plight of the illegal immigrants and was well ahead of its times. Dev Anand was superb in this movie, especially in the scene where he tries to convince the Asian immigrants that he is one for them by putting his hand on the lamp. The filming of the beautiful song "TOO pee " is one of the best choreographed songs ever in Bollywood. The camera angles in a crowded pub were just incredibly brilliant. It was Tina Munims debut also and what a debut it was! she looks beautiful and competent in this movie> Pran and Ajit also acquit themselves well by giving competent performances.

A must see for all
