In 1948, a cross-fire erupts at an isolated stretch of Indo-Pak border, leaving only two soldiers alive. One is an Indian soldier of Pakistani origin while the other happens to be a Pakistani soldier of Indian origin. An ironic story of pride and survival begins when - in an attempt to evade danger, they bump into each other. And amidst continuous exchange of bullets, altercations and murkier situations, it evolves into a journey of human connection with an unforeseeable end. Written by
Kya Dilli, Kya Lahore (Hindi): This is yet another Gentle Classic of this year after 'Aankhon Dekhi' which is actually worth your buck for a good cinematic experience which gently shows the romance between two torn nations behind its pathetic politics. The film has a great script (Aseem Arora, Pratham Jolly and Manu Rishi) which, despite having no pace or action has a great structure, crackling dialogues by Manu Rishi, good production design and sound design, brilliant music score by Sandesh Shandiliya, cinematography by Raj Chakraborty which beautifully captures the tension and humaneness and last but not the least, the compact cast (Vijay Raaz, Manu Rishi, Vishwajeet and Raj Zutshi) which is simply humane and riveting. The problem with the film is that it lacks compactness which was there in the 2002 Academy Award winning Bosnian film 'No Man's Land', whose shades can be seen in the film. Overall, debut director Vijay Raaz's direction added with Gulzar's poetry make the film worth a watch. My rating would be: 4/5
