An Eye Opener
19 March 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Jang Aur Aman" is a documentary film tracing the development of nuclear weapons in both India and Pakistan. Patwardhan, the director, addresses issues of nationalism and religion in order to explain the basis of this rivalry. He takes the audience into the realm of each country, interviewing common citizens and politicians alike. Patwardhan succeeds in portraying both perspectives of the situation objectively. Even the most oblivious viewer is able to follow the gradual progression of events with the sufficient amount of historical information given. In light of the events that have taken place since 9/11, the backdrop of political unrest and terrorism, in third world countries, is, now more than ever, of global concern. This film is only a glimpse of the harsh realities that are commonplace in many struggling countries. After having seen this film, the viewer is left dumbfound; yet well informed. Patwardhan truly does an excellent job in portraying the atrocities committed by these two warring countries and the horrors of what may come, if the issue is left unresolved.
