Khuda Kay Liye

A friend suggested this film saying this is the movie that Shoot on Sight could have been. Like the former this film too tries to extrapolate the perilous situation Pakistanis / Muslims are in all over the world, with the Islamic fundamentalists encroaching up on progressive minds. The storyline is two pronged with the happenings in the lives of two brothers across continents are juxtaposed to highlight this. But in spite of the strong hard hitting content the film appears distant and doesn't engage the viewer. The script could have been easily blamed for this but Naseeruddin Shah's cameo showed the issue lay with the dialog delivery of the other so called actors!
