9 Times Movies Explored Indo-Pak Relationship

Love thy neighbor is our dream when it comes to our north-eastern neighbor. No, we are not at war with them. But the harmony that should ideally exist between the neighbors is still a distant dream (we have not given up hope). Movies and books are reflections of life they say, and the political atmosphere sometimes finds its way into these work of art. The two biggest conflicts (partition and the Kargil war) have been immortalized by the movies number of times. After the makers had used up those topics, they decided to create stories surrounding the love-hate relationship we share with them. Wouldn’t you like to know which those movies were?

Main Hoon Na

Main Hoon Na - BookMyShowApart from having back-to-college theme and some superb fight sequences, Main Hoon Na had a concept of Project Milaap. The project was introduced to free prisoners from both the countries so that they could return to their homeland. We wish this project was a reality. 

Veer – Zaara

Veer Zaara - BookMyShowThis movie reminds us of the quote, “love in the time of war.”  Veer-Zaara not only spoke about the possibility of love between individuals from both the countries, but also the love prevailed over all the obstacles that were put before them.

Mission Kashmir

Mission Kashmir - BookMyShowThis paradise on earth has been in constant turmoil since our independence. This story about how these constant attacks harm more innocents and create even more anti-social elements.

Sarfarosh

Sarfarosh - BookMyShowThis movie uses the concept of Trojan Horse, while describing the form of attacks that can happen in our country. This movie also explores the concept that corruption is the primary problem when it comes to prevention of attacks.

Ek Tha Tiger

Ek Tha Tiger - BookMyShiowWorking with the government intelligence organization, you almost always meet your counterparts of other countries.  This movie is the story of one such time and how love blossomed then.

Bajarangi Bhaijaan

Bajrangi Bhaijaan - BookMyShowWhat lengths would a stranger go to, to make sure that a little girl reaches home safely? Especially if the girl is from Pakistan. Watch this movie to find out. This movie shows Pakistan in a different light and humanizes the people, something which has been long overdue. The beauty of the country makes us want to pack our bags and go there for a visit.

Gadar: Ek Prem Katha

Gadar - BookMyShowPartition was an excruciating time for both the countries and the years after that were full of tumult. The possibility of being separated from your family can be traumatic for anyone.

Zameen

Zameen - BookMyShowThe premise of hijacking is not used upto the point of saturation in Bollywood at the time of its release, and was a relatively fresh concept.

Phantom

Phantom - BookMyShowThe movie about what should have been our reaction to attacks of 26/11 makes us semi-satisfied on seeing it happen in reel-ity.

Sarabjit, an upcoming movie is yet another take on the relationship between the two countries. But, unlike the above movies it is based on a true story. Watch the trailer below, if you haven’t seen it yet.
