Salakhain tells the story of an innocent, hardworking student who comes from a lower middle class family and who is in love with an equally innocent and sweet young girl. A strange twist of events lands him in a dispute with the booty mafia (people facilitating cheating during exams), resulting in his arrest, his father's death and his mother going mad, one following the other in quick succession. In jail he meets a man who knows his enemies well and has his own issues to pick up with them. The rest is a story filled with love, action, revenge and closure. Written by Hollywood

An AWESOME Movie from Lollywood!! A Must See!!
6 July 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This movie has the qualities that makes it worth watching over and over. I am HIGHLY impressed with the improvements made in Lollywood. The acting in this movie was wonderful! This movie has a powerful drama storyline that would make its audience feel emotional. It's not so easy for me to drop few tears from watching a movie but there was a certain bond that is shown in Faizan's family (Ahmed Butt) that makes certain scenes very emotional.

If you're close with your parents then this movie is bound to make tears come out of your eyes! There is plenty of nice comedy at the start of the movie with Pakistani stage show actors so that shapes up the whole atmosphere well for a dramatic turnover from comedy into unfortunate events that would engage its audience and have their eyes glued to the screen to see how the story unfolds and what happens next in Faizan's life.

I would recommend you all to watch this as I don't think this is a copy of any movie, I might be wrong but it doesn't feel like it. Few songs in the movie are wicked also! It's a MUST SEE for ALL!! Awesome movie!!!
