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)

True revival of Pakistani Cinema....
22 July 2007 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

When i was entering the cinema hall in Lahore on the first day of its release,i thought i was the only female who was going to watch the film as our families have stopped visiting the cinema cause of the type of films that are being made nowadays....But i was shocked n surprised to see lot of girls coming into the cinema with their family members to watch this master piece by Pakistan's finest director or should i say the only brilliant director we have,the great, Shoaib Mansoor....

"Khuda Kay liye" is a masterpiece...Every Pakistani should be proud of the fact that this film is made in our country...when everyone thought that PAkistani Cinema is dead...Khuda Kay liye came at the right time and have played a major part in revival of our cinema....

What shud i say about the movie...everyone Pakistani should visit the cinema at least once to watch this movie n also to contribute a bit in the revival of our industry....

Hats of to Shaan,Fawad Khan n Imaan Ali for their great performances...i am not a big fan of shaan but was actually surprised to see such a brilliant performance by him...if given a chance he can beat any actor from across the border or anywhere in the world...Fawad was also quite gud in his role...lets say he fitted well...Iman Ali was also quite surprising...coming from a modeling background i never expected her to be so believable in the role she waz doing...gr8 work by every actor...

One person who needs a special mention here is Naseeruddin shah....i dun have to say anything about him...he is truly a legend....he proved that when it comes to a great cinema it cannot be completed without him being their cuz he himself is an integral part of it...his every dialog,every move will make u glued to ur seats...u just have to see the movie to know what i am talking about...

And lastly i would actually like to thank Shoaib Mansoor for giving us such a beautiful and did i mention thought provoking film...its a film that we can be proud of...if such films are being continuously made we will soon say bye bye to all those crappy stuff from across the border....
