Review: Partition
review movie partition

I just watched Partition, just now in Star Movies.

Here's the sypnosis of it.
"A love story played out against a backdrop of political and religious upheaval. At the end of the Second World War, 38 year-old career soldier Gian Singh( Jimi Mistry) resigns his commission with the British Indian Army and returns to his childhood village, near the border with Pakistan. Haunted by the memories of war, he seeks a quiet life of farming, solitude and prayer. His peace is shattered in August 1947, however, when India is granted independence. A new border is drawn between Hindu-dominated India and Muslim-dominated Pakistan, and the region is torn apart by massacres fueled by ancient animosities. In the midst of one such massacre, Gian finds Naseem(Kristin Kreuk), a 17-year-old Muslim girl, and takes her under his protection. They gradually find themselves drawn to each other but, as their remarkable story plays out, the obstacles to their happiness prove all but insurmountable."

"Partition, a co-production between Canada, the United Kingdom and South Africa, is a sweeping, historical drama set against the partition of India and based on the real life experiences of director Vic Sarin’s family." Wow, no wonder it's so great. It's so great that I recommend it to all of ya!

The movie touches the heart and I do feel the suffering and the political life, including the feel of a mother for her child while fighting for the love of her life. I feel ya, Kristin. I rate this movie 9/10. It's as close to perfect~! =)

Doesn't she look gorgeous in a saree? My, it's breathtaking!

She looks like Aishwarya Rai here don't you think?

There were parts of the movie not screened. Seems like Star Movies cut the love making scene, not that intense but the point is, they cut it and here's the missing action =) (p/s: He's so nice without the turban! Looks like a gladiator man!)

The movie is sold in DVD format in Amazon for $26.99. It's after 10% discount people~
