Storyline

What makes a man step into a cargo container that is going to be sealed for days? Why does he step into a flimsy overloaded boat to face a stormy sea? Or dart across international borders dodging bullets? What are the compulsions faced by men in Pakistan, which make them take extreme risks to chase a mirage of a secure future in alien lands? Set against the backdrop of the world of illegal immigration, Zinda Bhaag is a film about three young men trying to escape the reality of their everyday lives ... and succeeding in ways they had least expected. In a nondescript neighbourhood of Lahore, three friends are desperate to get on to the fast track to success. Khaldi, Taambi and Chitta, all in their early twenties, believe that the only way out ... is to the West. The journey that unfolds through the story of this film gives us a peep into what constitutes the everyday in the lives of many young men and women in Pakistan - a sense of entitlement that cannot be fulfilled, desperation to ...

Good theme but it is one of the biggest crap when it comes to direction,screenplay and acting
23 June 2014 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Zinda bhaag highlights the problems in our society that are especially faced by men and one problem that everybody knows going to abroad by unfair means.It tells the story of 3 different characters who are involved in such activities and what happens to them when they try to flee from Pakistan to Abroad for earning money.This is a very serious issue but when it comes to the execution part some one expects the film to be more strong than the script because its a huge responsibility to portray the script into a great visual treat and Zinda Bhaag fails to do so.Poor direction,weak screenplay and pathetic acting made me think that how can a movie like this is appreciated I still wonder how.Only one thing that I like is Naseerudin Shah acting who puts something into nothing but overall its a disaster.
