This isn't a movie, its real life..
22 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie a few weeks back. Being an Indian myself, I was surprised to see this one in an American website. However, the movie is really shot to originality. Sukumaran arrives in Dubai, without either a passport or visa ie. he arrives on an illegal launch boat like most Indians did , in search of their dreams of a beautiful and wealthy "Persia", where no one has to suffer any hardships, and yet become rich as kings. On reaching the coastline of Fujeirah, the captain, afraid of being spotted by the Bedouin army, asks him to jump into the sea from the launch, where along with a few others he swims ashore. Amazed to see the place to be a barren desert, he walks on until he meets an Arab in a pickup, who offers him a ride to Dubai.

From the on the story begins. He finds that 'Persia' is fit only for hardworking people. He meets a few friends of his in Dubai, who get him a job. Then by his hard work and determination, Sukumaran finally makes his pile and returns to India. The movie deals superbly with the feelings of people who migrated to Gulf countries away from their dear ones, in search of work. As many as 80,000 Indians migrated to United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia in the 70's and 80's. It also shows how relatives back in India eye only the wealth of the "Gulf" Indian, and imagine that life is paradise-like in Gulf countries. This isn't just any other movie plot; its the real life of millions of Indians who manage to live on amidst the dunes and heat of the Arabian Desert.
