During 1941 the trio are dispatched to active duty in Burma where Andrew is killed. Both Gian and Avtar return to their village in Sarsa, Punjab, where Gian lives with his widowed mom, Shanti. During 1947, after 350 years of occupying India, the British decide to leave, but not before separating Islamic Pakistan and secular India. Millions of Muslims crossed from India to Pakistan, while an equal number of Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians crossed over from the other side. A group of Muslims who were crossing over to Pakistan are attacked by a mob of sword wielding horse-riding Sikhs, and Hindus, including Avtar, many are slaughtered, but some do manage to escape.

Wow, Canadian made can be good
12 February 2007 | by northeyjohnSee all my reviews

This movie was the first I've seen in a theater that was identified as a Canadian movie. I was hopeful it would be enjoyable, as the trailer online (never saw one in a theater) was promising. Very solid, very enjoyable love story with an interesting historical background. The movie had production levels I expect from standard US made movies but the storyline was a step above.

To me this movie deserves far more attention than it is getting. I suspect it is a top 10 in Canada at the moment but I've yet to find information on its ticket sales (there were 30 people there for a late-afternoon showing last Saturday).

With so much drek from the states at the moment this was a refreshing change.
