Plot Summary

Two musically gifted brothers, Mansoor and Sarmad, come from a non-conservative Muslim family. Mansoor heads off to the US and Sarmad wants to follow the Jihadi's interpretation of Islam. Both of them suffer at the hands of people whose ears are closed to beliefs other than their own.

What Worked

  • Speech on what Islam really is delivered by Naseeruddin Shah.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Dubbing!

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • The exteriors and interiors of Mansoor's house didn't match.
