Storyline

Abdullah is a devout Muslim who lives in a small hut the middle of a desert in Persia, and looks after a well so that it provides water to thirsty travelers. One day a friend, Ameer, informs him that bandit Khaleel had raided a settlement nearby, killing everyone except for Yashoda, a pregnant woman. Shortly thereafter, Ameer himself is killed, a mortally wounded Yashoda gives birth to a boy, names him Krishna, asks Abdullah to care for him, and passes away. Abdullah overcomes his fears of bringing up a Hindu boy, and looks after Krishna as his own. Then Khaleel's Magician informs him that he is going to die at the hands of Krishna, just as Bhagwan Shri Krishna was known to have slain Kans, his maternal uncle, so also will Khaleel's life end at this Krishna's hands. Angered at this, Khaleel sets out to kill Krishna. He attacks Abdullah, abducts Krishna and readies him for a sacrifice, that will get rid of any threat against him. Will fate intervene to save Krishna, or will Khaleel ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A brilliant movie, with a different sysnopsis
12 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Personally, I think this movie is absolutely brilliant. Hindi movies have the usual theme of Romance story lines, which gets boring. This movie has to be given a good score due to the director using a different storyline.

Abdullah is about a honest and kind Muslim in persia. The story starts when a hindu pregnant mother is attacked by dacoits looting in the area. Just before the pregnant mother dies, abdullah finds her in the desert, in labour. He helps her give birth to a boy.

Abdullah has to fight oppression and torture as he tries to bring up the boy as a hindu where the majority are muslims.

The rest you must watch!
