When a young Muslim makes an all-too-quick conversion from his romance-filled life to militant indoctrination, it leads his mother to confront her haunted past. Geared primarily for the Pakistani audience, the story takes for granted that Western viewers have a background understanding of the 1947 partitioning of India and Pakistan. While Kirron Kher delivers a full-dimensional performance as the mother, other characters aren't as fleshed out. Teeters between doc and Bollywood. In Punjabi with subtitles.
