I know what to expect as the movie is about Indo-Pak partition and the hardships faced by people in both the countries. The movie partly met my expectations but what I did not expect is the amazing acting by lead pair. Honestly, I was amazed by the performance of "The Guru", Jimy Mistry. Full marks to him. Kristin Kreuk is promising as well. All the other actors are from Bollywood and filled their shoes well.
