The film depicts the story of a Hindu Dalit Pakistani boy & his father who crossed the border by mistake & caught by Indian military. The story then is nothing but the progression of their lives in Indian jail & struggling mother.
Although based on really sentimental & thought provoking real event occurred in 2002, the film fails to deliver the pulse of the subject with dumb screenplay & numb performances & improbable, caricature like characters. The main problem with the film is that it’s not moving or progressing any further after first & last fifteen minutes. Performances of all indo-pak actors are just below average including Nandita Das & this is the second reason why the movie seems tad boring. Not a single character of the film including the child makes any emotional impact to viewers in two third of the film; its only Rashid Farooqui in the role of father & older Ramchand who saved the grace in last 20 minutes. Pakistani Director Mehreen Jabbar has a very noble cause while making this film but the whole cause seems wasted with so many fault lines looming all over the film.
