Description

When scorching winds blow, those that are not uprooted, wither away. Salim Mirza discovers this the hard way when he refuses to go to the newly formed Pakistan even as his family and friends leave. Slowly, and devastatingly, his life is reduced to shambles as he suffers familial, social and economic alienation in a country that has been his own for generations. Will he survive? What is the way out for those like him across the world stuck between longings to stay rooted to their heritage and the winds of change scattering them around? Balraj Sahni give his best performance in his last film as the angst ridden, but stoical and proud man who, along with his family, face insurmountable odds in their quest for a dignified life as a Muslim family in a post-partition India. Nominated for what is believed to be the highest award in cinema, the Golden Palm at Cannes, this newly restored, remastered and enhanced film finds new relevance in a world going increasingly intolerant of those that are 'different'.
