Storyline

Gian Singh & Avtar Singh are officers with the Indian Army serving under the command of Andrew Stilwell, who lives with his sister, Margaret, in Delhi. During 1941 the trio are dispatched to active duty in Burma where Andrew is killed. Both Gian and Avtar return to their village in Sarsa, Punjab, where Gian lives with his widowed mom, Shanti. During 1947, after 350 years of occupying India, the British decide to leave, but not before separating Islamic Pakistan and secular India. Millions of Muslims crossed from India to Pakistan, while an equal number of Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians crossed over from the other side. A group of Muslims who were crossing over to Pakistan are attacked by a mob of sword wielding horse-riding Sikhs, and Hindus, including Avtar, many are slaughtered, but some do manage to escape. Muslims, in turn, kill all Hindus, Sikhs and Christian passengers on a train en-route to India. While Gian, who refuses to participate in any killing, is picking up wood for his ...

extra-ordinary acting and touching story
2 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know what to expect as the movie is about Indo-Pak partition and the hardships faced by people in both the countries. The movie partly met my expectations but what I did not expect is the amazing acting by lead pair. Honestly, I was amazed by the performance of "The Guru", Jimy Mistry. Full marks to him. Kristin Kreuk is promising as well. All the other actors are from Bollywood and filled their shoes well.

Being an Indian, I would say few locations in the movie are captured very well but most of them appeared to be artificial. A very good attempt by the director to accurately show the cultures of the sub-continent. Watch the movie if you like slow movies, otherwise forget it!!
