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 ...

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.
