Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo
December 24th, 2004 - 1500 hrs IST
When a winning combination of a director and writer team up again after delivering one of Indian cinema's biggest hits [GADAR], you only expect the ultimate in their subsequent project.
Post GADAR, director Anil Sharma not only teams up with GADAR writer Shaktiman, but also assembles an ensemble star cast for his latest outing, AB TUMHARE HAWALE WATAN SATHIYO. Naturally, and quite expectedly, the first question you ask yourself is, will they emerge trumps this time around as well? Will they recreate history all over again?
AB TUMHARE HAWALE WATAN SATHIYO can be best described as a swanky car with a faulty engine. It starts off well and as you start enjoying the journey, it suddenly decelerates. And before you think it must've been a minor irritant, the engine conks off, leaving you high and dry.
AB TUMHARE HAWALE WATAN SATHIYO comes at a time when relations between India and Pakistan are at an all-time high. The film looks at the Kashmir issue, revisits Kargil, talks about Pak-sponsored terrorism, besides the two countries trade abuses and insults, hurl accusations, ridicule each other at international platforms and in the end, suddenly, the story does a somersault - the two nations talk of peace and harmony in the last scene. Strangely, the film is touted as India's first film on Indo-Pak friendship. Wonder, if this is friendship, what exactly is the meaning of enmity then?
One actually thought that Indian film-makers had stopped hitting out at Pakistan in their films, but AB TUMHARE HAWALE WATAN SATHIYO takes you back to the days when abusing your neighbour would instantaneously draw claps. In today's times, when the two nations are trying their best to bury the ugly past and make a new beginning, a film like AB TUMHARE HAWALE WATAN SATHIYO only re-opens old wounds.
