The doors seem to have been opened wide and clear for films from Pakistan to hit the Indian screens. After KHUDA KAY LIYE, another film from Pakistan, which is being released in India, is SALAKHAIN. However, this time around, the film isn't issue based but is instead a hardcore commercial revenge saga.
SALAKHAIN is an Urdu film set in Lahore. It tells the story of an innocent, hardworking student who comes from a lower middle class family and is in love with an equally innocent and sweet young girl. Soon, he finds himself engulfed in a dispute with the mafia, which facilitates cheating during exams, and he finds himself being arrested. Tragedy strikes as his father dies and his mother too goes mad. How he plots revenge and gets even with his enemies forms the crux of SALAKHAIN.
Released in 2004, the film introduced Ahmad, one of Pakistan's most sought after model and winner of LUX Style Awards 2003 for Best Model, in the lead role. A thriller that ran for one year in Lahore, SALAKHAIN stars Meera as the leading lady.
