Kya Dilli Kya Lahore (2014) Review!!

kya dilliSynopsis – In 1948, a cross-fire erupts at an isolated stretch of Indo-Pak border, leaving only two soldiers alive. One is an Indian soldier of Pakistani origin while the other happens to be a Pakistani soldier of Indian origin. An ironic story of pride and survival begins when – in an attempt to evade danger, they bump into each other. And amidst continuous exchange of bullets, altercations and murkier situations, it evolves into a journey of human connection with an unforeseeable end.

My Take – Sometimes in a decade someone attempts to make a sensible film and this film is exactly that! With just 4 characters shot in just one location!! The movie is an eye opener for those who sees 1947 Indo-Pak separation story with guilt & consider it unlawful. The movie talks about the injustice endured on both the countries due to power hungry politicians and diplomats.

Kya-Dilli-Kya-Lahore-Movie-2014-Images-540x405The story begins with hilarious conversations and altercations between Manu Rishi & Vijay Raaz. While the second half focuses more on the hatred people of both country have, while some scenes may seem prolonged, they were deliberately included to execute the end. The dialogues are very well-written by Manu Rishi who also played a role of Indian military cook. Seasoned comedian Vijay Raaz has made a name for himself in movies for his comic timing, even though he plays a character much like himself, its his execution as a director which wins him bonus points!

kya-dilliKya Dilli Kya Lahore is a movie that assures a dose of entertainment & raises questions along with doubts for people of Pakistan & India: why are we still fighting this war for past 67 years, when we all are basically the same people in matters of culture, language & food….
