In a valley of astonishing beauty, a small family lives in an idyllic house: a father, a mother and a son. They are a picture of happiness and love. But appearances are often deceptive. This pastoral landscape is the strife-torn valley of Kashmir, and the son, Altaaf, is an orphan of war who has been adopted by a policeman, Inayat Khan, and his wife, Neelima. Altaaf is slowly recovering from the psychic wounds of seeing his parents and his young sister shot to death before his eyes by a masked man. Years later, a rebel force infiltrates the valley on a secret mission. They need an highly trained fighter with burning anger and find that in Altaaf. He returns to the streets and by lanes of his childhood fighting for Hilal Kohistani, but also obsessed with his own private mission: he must kill the masked intruder who haunts his nightmares -- Inayat Khan.Written by
One to see unless you can't handle portrayals of brutal truth
I'm no expert on Hindi film, but IMHO this is a classic. A must-see for people struggling with inter-ethnic rivalries, I think. Although there is a bit of a stereotypical take on Islamic jihad, etc. (I'm not a Moslem, either), the cinematography and powerful story line alone are worth the watch. U.S. filmmakers: could you tackle a subject like this as well?? I will be looking deeper into V.V. Chopra's work now...
Sonali Kulkarni is beautiful and convincing in a difficult supporting role. The real/imagined singing and dancing is fanciful (in the Indian tradition) and well-done. Perhaps that's the element that couldn't or wouldn't be attempted in U.S. film. All in all it was an enjoyable film for me and treats some very sticky subjects (ethnic war, revenge, loss of innocence, PTSD, etc.).
