Storyline

Amongst the communal riots that erupt in the city, Tara shelters a wayward Sakina from a crazed mob and a bond that blossoms into love is created. The two eventually get married and have a son. The happy family, now living in Amritsar, gets the shock of their lives when Sakina learns that her father (Amrish Puri), whom she previously believed died in the riots back in Amritsar, is still alive after seeing his picture in a tattered, old newspaper. Upon contacting him, Sakina's father, now the mayor of Lahore in Pakistan, arranges for his daughter to arrive in Lahore to see him. Sakina leaves for Lahore minus Tara and her son, and upon reaching the city, learns of her father's plans for her - plans that include forcing Sakina to forget about her family and start life anew in Pakistan. Then begins an extraordinary journey which will lead Tara to cross the border into Pakistan to find his love Sakina. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

must watch for all indians
15 July 2001 | by (india) – See all my reviews

after a very long time we see a period film attempted in India on such a large scale.Sunny Deol had a lot at stake and man did it pay off.Its being declared as the biggest hit of all times.Sunny and Amisha deliver performances of a life time.National award and other awards belong to him..no doubt. If you are an Indian and love your country then there is no way you would'nt like the movie.Its the best and a must watch for all true Indians.DON'T MISS THIS ONE.
