Harsh reality shown in polite manner
3 December 2008 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Its a good movie; Based on a harsh reality, which is was shown in soft way. So as it could be watched by both Indians and Pakistanis without any discrimination.

Although few things were shown really very softly. e.g. The jail life But still its a very good movie considering the standard of Lolly wood. Acting is good specially the acting of the Nandita Das as mother was awesome. Moreover culture highlight of Thar desert was also good although its far more tough than what shown in the movie.

This movie resulted in creating healthy awareness and as per my info the govt of both India and Pakistan agreed to have the border wired (Except for Kashmir Region Which is a disputed territory as per UN resolution.) so as accidental crossing of border could be stopped.
