Would have been better if it was a 90 min movie
12 September 2019 | by samabc-31952See all my reviews

A young boy with polio is abandoned by his own family in a deserted drought stricken village which is in the middle of nowhere... this is a story about his struggles and courage .. it also tries to raise awareness about polio in rural areas around Pakistan-Afghanistan border .. it is a heart-rending true story.. this movie was Pakistan's submission to the 90th Academy Awards.. good background score ... based on a true story .. If it was edited and shortened to a 90 min long at the most then it would probably have become a fine work of Pakistani parallel cinema.
