Years later, Raju has grown up ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

19 March 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

"Chann Pardesi" is a masterpiece of Punjabi Cinema. The most acclaimed Punjabi Film. Theonly Punjabi Film to ever win the "National Award". Studded with a mega Star Cast, presented to you by DEI in a pristine print. It is a story of "Love, Betrayal, Truth , Happiness, Revenge & Sorrow" Nek(Kulbhushan Kharbanda) a happy go lucky farmer who works hard for his dream of marrying Kammo (Rama Vij). Nek's dream is shattered when he learns that his new born son is not his but that of Jagirdar (Amrish Puri). The story revolves around the intense emotions of now grown up Lali (Raj Babbar), his mother and Nek. Revenge rages in the heart & soul of Nek.Will Nek revenge the rape of his wife? Will Lali learn the truth of who his real father is? For all the answers to these questions, watch the Mega Blockbuster " Chann Pardesi"
