An Indian Film

Baadshah Khan falls in love with Benazir, a member of a rival clan who has defeated him in a game of buzkashi. Benazir will not marry him unless he brings back the head of her father's killer, Habibullah, from India.

Generally speaking, Indian films have not impressed me. Some stand out as great, but the more recent ones tend to run much too long and are full of far too much singing and dancing. This obviously appeals to some people, or they would not be this way. But it does not appeal to me.

That being said, "Khuda Gawah" is actually quite good. There is still singing and dancing, and the running time is rather long. But the characters and plot are quite rich, and tell an interesting multi-national story that goes above and beyond the usual fare.
