Storyline

Unemployed Aftab is into smuggling on Indo-Pak border. One day he attempts to grab a consignment of arms and ammunition that is being supplied to terrorists. When he finds that he is being followed, he decides to destroy the consignment only to be recognized by the terrorists. Meanwhile, he goes to arrange his marriage with his beloved, Ruksana, whereby questions arise about his biological father; questions that he or his mother, Mariam are unable to answer, thus the marriage plans become nulled. A few days later he gets to meet Ramakant Pandit who Mariam introduces to him as his father and who on his death bed begs to forgive him. Shortly after, Ramakant passes away and Aftab gets to meet his step-brother Dhananjay alias Jai who is quite resentful towards Aftab and his mother. Meanwhile, Aftab and Mariam are apprehended and tortured by the same terrorists whose booty was destroyed by Aftab. He is forced to call Jai for help. Fortunately Jai agrees after Aftab pleads with him and soon... Written by gavin (racktoo@hotmail.com)

Great music, lyrics, photography and direction
26 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

What can I say about Kache Dhage? Have seen it many times. Every viewing enriches the experience except that the suspense in the climax will no longer be there. This film is dominated by its music and the story becomes weak before the music in spite of being good on its own.

Songs just fit into the film very well. The haunting music composed by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan with the right dose of Punjabi words in the songs is the best thing happened to this film. The image of Punjabi songs, at least for me, was only "balle balle" type of songs. However after I discovered the treasure of Punjabi poetry in Nusrat's other compositions, I decided to learn Punjabi one day. The songs of this film are definitely and definitively representatives of the wonderful Punjabi poetry.

If I remember what I heard on TV correctly, the music for this film is as such not composed for this film but the film makers took the music of Nusrat and ACKNOWLEDGED/credited Nusrat for his music. This honesty is reflected in every department. Unfortunately, Milan Luthria could not live up to the expectations of people like me with his other offerings Chori Chori and Deewar, given the promise of his talent that was present all over Kache Dhaage.

I recommend this film very strongly. God Willing, I would own a DVD of this film soon.
