Lahore – Saturday, 11th August 2012 at 9.30 P.M on DD National Channel
Lahore is a film that truly focuses on the frayed relations between India and Pakistan and attempts to give a solution.
The first half of the film revolves around Dheerendra (Sushant Singh), a kick boxer. He is a promising newcomer on his way up, breaking many established records and easily carrying the tag of ‘the pride of Rajasthan’. He plays fair. Wins with flair. He has a supportive fiance (Shraddha Nigam) and a loving mother (Nafisa Ali). To top it off, he’s got a star cricketer (Aanaahad) for a younger brother. However, a goodwill match between India and Pakistan shatters happy family. Because, unable to suck up to the fact that he’s lost, the great kick-boxer of Pakistan Noor (Mukesh Rishi) does a foul and knocks off Dheeru, forever. The second half of the film, picks up the story of the vengeance filled younger brother who takes up the decision to changeover from cricket to boxing just so he can get back to Noor. Everyone realizes his intentions which are pretty obvious by the way. But somehow, coach Rao decides to give him a chance. So Veeru chugs to Lahore to face the brute who finished his elder brother’s life without a second thought. Now in this match whether India or Pakistan wins and if the victory really matters makes up for the climax of the film.
