Storyline

There is going to be a wedding in the family, and a father and son journey all the way from Punjab, India to London, U.K. to participate in the ceremony. Once in London, they come to know that the neighborhood is being terrorized by caucasian skinheads, who want to drive all asians away, back to the countries of their birth. The son stands up against the skinheads, and even beats up quite a few of them. When the leader of the skinheads, Cain, comes to know about this incident, he asks his men not to interfere with this Indian male, as the skinheads are not the only ones who hate Indians - the Pakistanis hate them more, and Cain decides to kill two birds with one, and do what the East India Company did in the 19th century - divide and rule.

Different fare and still entertaining
9 April 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

I never before have heard of the skinheads neo-Nazi group before, probably because I don't live in England. I guess I could compare it to the KKK here in the US. I live just a couple hours north of their headquarters! I never really remember encountering one, though. My parents said we ran into some in Martinsville, IN, but I was too young to remember it. They also tell me about this group called "Dot Busters" where they used to shoot women with the dots on their forehead (Indians wearing bindis), but I don't think they exist anymore. Anyways, I think one can only enjoy this movie if he/she can relate to it. How much you like it depends on how much racism you've experienced or knowledge you have of such groups. My geographic location let me enjoy the movie and the fact that I slightly remember how racist my society used to be in the late 80s-early 90s. However, I am fortunate to say that society seems to be heading in the right direction in respect to racism, so I didn't have enough experience to like love this movie.

Sohail Khan did a good job acting. Since it was his production, I'm sure he had a passion for the story and could fully embody the character. He has matured as an actor from his awful debut (don't even remember the name of it) to Darna Mana Hai and now I. His bhabhi did a great job acting, and so did the little kid. Aslam also was good. After a long time, I saw a not-small budget film, and it was sure a nice experience after all the trashy movies that have come out this year. Songs were not bad. One thing I didn't like that much is that racism was responded to with violence. In reality, I don't believe violence can solve ANYTHING.
