average story,very good direction
12 November 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ramchand Pakistani is a story of a Hindu lower caste Pakistani boy and his father living near the border area. One day both the father and the son cross the border and arrested by Indian security. They spent several years in an Indian jail and the mother does not have any information what is happened to them. After some years only the son returns to his own village in search of his mother. The film is brilliantly directed but the story line is little bit pure. Both the father and Ramchand(younger) acted very well. The film has a good back ground score and the last song 'phir wohi raaste' is excellent with a good picturization.
