Iraq in the early 1990 was a devastating land to survive in. When we think of Iraq, the first thing that tends to pop into our minds is the war and Saddam Hussein. But there is another side too - it is perhaps the most notorious country in the world and it goes by the name Kurdistan. Welcome to BEKAS.

Awesome child comedy Movie with serious background.
The movie has created quite a buzz in Bangalore International Film Festival BIFFES 2013. Before watching, I had read the synopsis and felt this one is going to really start boring me at least some part of the movie. But seriously, i never felt bored even a moment through out the movie. Excellent direction with great choice of Camera angles and shot selection.
The shot above the lake till it shows the brothers on Long ears with celebrations is outstanding. The music or background score compliments the movie from start till the end. The performances by the two little boys are outstanding and the little one made me speechless.
Edge of the seat scenes and holding your attention till the end from the start is outstanding. Director Kader strikes the right chords with his direction and the length of the movie. The climax seems just right and very well shot.
