Khamosh Pani

Village of Charkhi, Pakistan, 1979: The widow Ayesha (Kiron Kher) lives with her 18 year old son, Salim. The latter is in love with Zubaydah, both being promised a beautiful union. But now Islamic fundamentalists coming to town, preaching a strict Muslim state. Fascinated by their faith, Salim became friends with them, what worries much his mother, who hides a dark secret from 1947, the time of Partition.

It is difficult to talk about Khamosh Pani without revealing some of the revelations, yet the surprise reserve is quite recent chilling to stay ... Copyright kills Pakistani Film co-produced by France and Germany, this feature film is nothing that the detour for its leading actress, Kiron Kher's moving ( Main Hoon Na , Veer-Zaara ), which carries the film on his shoulders.

Intimate, this sensitive period film addresses a subject rarely treated: relations between Indian and Pakistani Muslims Sikhs. Created in the historical region of Punjab, the state of Pakistan was home indeed holy places for Sikhs, and those who had come to India after the Partition felt the need to make a pilgrimage. The film presents just one of them, granted by Pakistan and the frictions that occur between Sikhs and Muslims, with finesse and without ever taking sides with one of the two "camps", among whom our aging hero finds himself torn for reasons that remain to be discovered ...

Incidentally, the film is more than a naturalistic chronicle of an event at a particular time, it has a real scenario that plays within the limits of course psychological realism, flashbacks and revelations blazing to keep the viewer's attention and to discover the shocking truth, the film can only be, at least indirectly, based on real facts.

Khamosh Pani is a beautiful and small arthouse film that plays on the economy; in light years of the great Bollywood original frescoes, yet it is an authentic history lesson on a very interesting subject, admittedly minimalist, with a slow introduction and too brief final sequence, but reserve painful surprises and several poignant scenes thanks to the overwhelming Kiron Kher.

The car looks stunning and technically advanced in tata’s series of cars. I got very good reviews about this lately.

I will be more happy if the number of domestic carries increases. Kingfisher's exit and now SpiceJet's troubles are not helping the situation. Hopefully, the Tatas with their experience in pretty much everything from salt to software will be able to change the paradigm.
