Storyline

In Mumbai, affable Bollywood buff and wanna-be-actor Sunny, who works as an assistant director, fantasizes on becoming a heart-throb star. However, at every audition he is summarily thrown out. Undeterred, he goes with an American crew to remote areas in Rajasthan to work on a documentary. One day an Islamic terrorist group kidnaps him for the American crew-member. Sunny finds himself on enemy border amidst guns and pathani-clad guards, who decide to keep him hostage until they locate their original target. The house In which he is confined belongs to a Pakistani, whose trade stems from pirated Hindi films, which he brings back every time he crosses the border. Soon, the two factions realize that they share a human and cultural bond. The film shows how cinema can be the universal panacea for co-existence. Written by UTV Motion Pictures

beyond the borders of India and Pakistan....heart touching film
17 December 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

i have seen this film @ IFFK film fest kerala,India.....its about human and their emotions,...passions...faith.....director tried to keep the balance while telling the subjects about India and Pakistan... the best scene in this film is at the end of the film..."Hero speaking with kid,,.." .. kid:." you are not a Hindustani... hero :.why..? ... kid :Hindustanis are not nice persons like you...!!! hero : dear ...who told you that..? kid: i heard it from everywhere... hero;its not true...we Indians are also thought like this.....etc...etc.. .... ..this film is right from the heart of the director...he used humor elements for entertaining the audience... and spread a good message their hearts...all other elements like politics,terrorism,Bollywood are secondary elements..
