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.

a worthy watch
19 September 2017 | by (UAE) – See all my reviews

To be honest I stumbled upon this movie accidentally. But what turned out was a ride that I didn't regret.

This is a punjabi movie and has its touch of humor but some things in the movie are actually thought provoking and would make you nod your head. It shows the struggles of what it means to try to do better and try to achieve things.

The movie was a worthy experience and left me coming out of it with a lot on my mind. I would recommend you to watch it.
