Heart Wrenching
30 December 2010 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Its very similar to a good Hindi movie Gaddar and an awesome Punjabi movie- Shaheed e mohabbat but still this movie is unique in its own way. The acting performances are flawless. Portrayal of a Sikh in this movie is amongst most authentic one ever in any movie. Movie moves at a good pace. The casting is very appropriate. In short this movie is a hidden gem which I found on Netflix. I wish this movie gets the recognition it deserves. The character of Gyan is portrayed excellently. The Canadian girl playing Naseem bears resemblance to another actress Kalki Koechlin. I knew the movie is fiction but I could not help praying for a happy ending. A must watch for anyone moved by well made movies with good scripts.
