Storyline

A young man, Armaghan, returns to Pakistan after 25 years to search out his Sufi master. During his journey through the alluring yet dangerous city of Lahore said to be guarded by Sufi Saints, the physical and material worlds uneasily blur, diverting him from his original quest. He pursues a mysterious woman through the streets of Lahore, but her changing forms make her impossible to possess. Will he find what he seeks or remain lost? His cousin, Ali, seeks his own calling in the sensual and violent world of Lollywood and becomes engulfed by fantastical musical hallucinations -- has he found peace or lost his hold on reality? "KASHF - The Lifting of the Veil" explores the pursuit of spirituality and the inevitable intrusions of the material on those who seek out a different reality. Written by Ayesha I. Khan

An enlightening first movie from a first-time filmmaker, Ayesha Khan.
21 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kashf has a stellar future. Ayesha's stories and subjects are beautiful, dynamic and timely in our global conscience. I really enjoyed the spiritual journey Armaghan took in the film and the beautiful cinematography in Kashf. The contrast between the two cousins, one searching for the his spiritual roots and the other searching for material success was very well observed. I am also loved the soundtrack which gave a insight into the many sounds and flavors of Pakistani music. I am honored to have been one of the first to see her movie (and to meet her--as vibrant a presence as her works) following her movie's debut at the Santa Fe Film Festival.
