Storyline

After going through a bitter divorce through a Caucasian wife, U.K.-based Hussain Shah now lives in a common-law relationship with another Caucasian woman. Angered that his daughter, Mary, is dating a Caucasian male, Dave, he counsels her to stop seeing him as it is forbidden for women to marry outside Islam. But when Mary persists, he relents and permits her to marry, provided she travels with him to Lahore, Pakistan, to meet his estranged mother and brother, to which she agrees. Once there, Mary is then taken to a remote area in Afghanistan and forced to marry her cousin, Sarmad Khan, a singing artiste, who has turned conservative after being influenced by Moulana Tahiri. Sarmad's brother, Mansoor, re-locates to Chicago, to enroll for music lessons with Professor Lincoln, meets with Caucasian fellow-student, Janie, and both fall in love with each other. Than the events of 9-11 will result in Mansoor's arrest by the CIA. He is isolated, humiliated, fed pork, tortured endlessly until ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Revival of Pakistani cinema
3 August 2007 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This movie has done a pretty good job to Revive Pakistani cinema, many good and educated families for the very first time visited cinemas and public response about KKL was superb. Cinemas houses were packed and even lot of people come back home again for the next show or waited in a long queue to watch this movie. Shoaib Mansoor is a brilliant director and film producer, his new venture was like a RAPID FIRE which burnt the whole country crowd with fumes of excitement and applause.We expect that he will continue this effort of giving good movies to Pakistan Film Industry which is almost dead.We are proud of legendary star - Mr Shoaib Mansoor.
