Director:Mehren Jabbar
Cert:TBC Year: 2008 Length:103mins
Based on a real-life case, this is the drama of a 7-year-old Pakistani boy who wanders across the border with India and ends up, along with his father who comes to look for him, languishing in jail for months, the pair mistakenly regarded as spies. Nandita Das is excellent as the bereft mother, though she is acted off the park by her screen-'son'.


“Syed Fazal Hussain is completely unselfconscious and simply superb.”
