ATHWS is a Venomous, Jingoistic flick disguised as a Friendship movie
Patriotism is supposed to mean love for one's country. But in director Anil Sharma 's films it acquires a new definition and becomes hatred towards one's neighbor. Like his previous flicks, Sharma's latest film, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo is jingoistic in flavor. The movie is not without Pak bashing and there are dialogues aplenty that insinuate towards Akshardham Temple episode, the Parliament attack and the terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir with continuous reference to Pakistani support to militants. And the funny thing is that the movie is being promoted as Indo-Pak friendship movie. And what does it show in the name of Indo-Pak friendship? the forces of the two countries joining hands in the end to fight militants who try to sabotage the Amarnath Yatra. In truth, ATHWS is a venomous, jingoistic flick disguised as a friendship movie. And it comes in very bad taste in the times when the relationship between the two countries is at an all-time high and the cultural exchange has begun between the people of two nations. The only non-irritating thing in the movie is the romantic track between the three leading characters.
