Good Documentary type film
29 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie a few days back. It deals with the story of a young boy who accidentally crosses the Indo Pak border and lands up in prison in India. Well directed, and well shot. Both the father and the son have acted really well in this movie. However, the movie was a bit slow at times, but that I guess is what you would expect in this type of documentary type film.

Music is very nice, especially the song by Shafqat "Phir Wohi Raste" really stands out. There are also some folk songs which are present in between which are very pleasing to hear.

Overall, a good one time watch.
