Storyline

The film is set in 1947. The exodus has begun after Partition. A Sikh ex-military man in his thirties finds a 16-year-old Muslim girl alone in a nearby village and brings her home. But the villagers tell him he should either marry her or leave her in a camp where people bound for Pakistan are located. But he decides that since he's far older, he'd better leave her at the camp. As he is about to send her off with a man bound for the camp and who is prepared to marry her there, she asks Buta Singh if he is so poor that he cannot even feed her two Rotis per day to keep her alive. Whereupon Buta Singh decides to marry her. They have a baby girl. And Buta is pretty happy that despite being overage, matrimonially speaking, he's leading a pleasant life. Others of his class usually had to actually buy women from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar whom they married. A jealous uncle who realizes the family property will now go to the Muslim girl, forcibly dumps Buta's wife into a truck bound for Pakistan.... Written by Jalwehra

Excellent all round work by Gurdas Mann to bring quality cinema
26 April 2002 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

Solid movie based upon a real life story at the time of Partition, about Boota Singh (Gurdas Mann) married to a Muslim girl who is forcibly deported to Pakistan in the mess that was the partition, leaving behind her daughter. He eventually goes in search of her, but she repudates him under pressure. Boota Singh dies, and in fact his grave is still in Lahore. Excellent work by all actors, Gurdas Mann is noted for quality products, and this is one of them. A joy for Punjabi language lovers, with nice locations, and very good, of course! music. A must-see.
