“A story of friendship and brotherhood beyond borders” is how the makers of Lashtam Pashtam describe the Hindi film. Directed by Manav Bhalla, the movie will open in theatres on August 10.
Starring Om Puri, Tisca Chopra, Dolly Ahluwalia, Vibhav Roy and Samar Vermani, the film follows two friends (Roy and Vermani), one from India and the other from Pakistan, who are settled in Dubai. All is well until the geo-political rivalry between their home countries makes its way into their friendship.
“When we became friends, I had no idea that an Indian and a Pakistani are separate people,” says Roy’s character in the trailer, which was released on Wednesday.
Lashtam Pashtam was one of Om Puri’s last projects before he died on January 7, 2017.
