Arjun lives a impoverished lifestyle with his widowed mother in a Chawl in Vikhroli, attends college and hangs out with Chabia. His mother wants him to complete his education and get hired with the Railways, but Arjun wants something better. He is attracted to fellow-collegian, Salma, and even takes part in acting classes just to be close to her. After a number of dramatic events, including being arrested for molesting women, Chabia asks him to borrow money from his mother so that they can make passports and re-locate to Dubai to earn a decent wage and improve their lifestyles. Amidst rising tensions of a war between Pakistan and India, Arjun is all set to ask his mother for a loan; while Chabia's brother, Sudhakar, will accuse him of stealing jewelry.

Indian censor board needs to grow up
22 May 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Interesting drama based on the lives of two teenagers from Mumbai with the impending Indo-Pak war in the background. Dreams of two friends to leave for a better life in a far away land. Interesting take on the lower middle class teen's of India. With one of the most unusual ending, leaves you wanting for more.

This one's certainly worth a watch. Its been almost a decade since this film was made, don't understand a reason for it to be banned. The controversial parts of the movies are really mellowed down. If the censor board still finds something wrong with it, i would say they must be watching a different film altogether.
