Dil Pardesi Ho Gayaa is another movie that revolves around India-Pakistan relations. The film, however, is more a love story than a political one. The storyline and the backdrop might remind you of Gadar. But Dil Pardesi Ho Gayaa has little in commen with the blockbuster when it comes to the script.
You donít need to be told that Ďlove has no boundariesí but Dil Pardesi Ho Gayaa tries to remind you of the same. Letís have a peep into the story:
Dil Pardesi Ho Gayaa tells you the story of an Indian boy and a Pakistani girl falling in love (played by newcomers Kapil Jhaveri and Saloni Aswani) with each other. It all starts when an Indian army officer (Ashutosh Rana) is captured and taken to Pakistan. The officer's younger brother Sunny (Kapil Jhaveri), is agitated over the incident and he wants to rescue hi brother at any cost.
He crosses the border and lands in Pakistan to achieve his aim. There he encounters, who else, a Pakistani beauty Rukhsar (Saloni Aswani). She is caught in fire while attempting to save a child from the fire. Sunny saves them both. The incident makes Rukhsar affectionate towards Sunny.
Love blossoms between the two in the due course. Sunny reveals his identity when Rukhsar asks him to marry her. Rushkar is shocked, as her father (Amrish Puri) is a brigadier in Pakistani army.
The brigadier is a man of a man of great principles and morals and hence the mission of his would be son-in-law concerns him a lot. Rukhsarís love and her fatherís commitment are at loggerheads.
Who wins the battle? A highly charged climax of will tell you the result of the tussle between love and principles.
The film has seven melodious songs composed by Saawan Kumarís favorite music director Usha Khanna (who returns after a long break). The director himself has written the lyrics. Harmeet Singhís cinematography and Shyam Guptaís sharp and sensitive dialogues are the other highlights of the film.
