This is a 2007 Pakistani Urdu-language drama written, directed and produced by Shoaib Mansoor. The film tells about two heart-wrenching and unbelievable stories. Mary is a westernized British Pakistani girl in love with a British boy named Dave. Her hypocritical father disapproves, despite the fact that he is living with a British woman to whom he is not married. He tells Mary that they are going to Pakistan for a trip and that once they return she can marry Dave. This, however, is a trap. Totally ingnoring her basic human rights, the father has her forcibly married to her cousin in Pakistan. This is definitely considered a serious crime in the western world---if not in the Islamic world. The other story concerns Mansoor, who goes to a music school in Chicago. There, he meets an American girl called Janie and instantly falls in love with her. She quits alcohol for him, and they eventually get married. After 9/11, FBI officers capture Mansoon when someone overhears a drunk man accusing Mansoor of being a terrorist. Subsequently, he is tortured for a year in custody just because of his Islamic background. Traumatized by a year of violence and torment, Mansoon becomes a patient in a mental hospital. After a failed rehab attempt, he is deported and reunited with his family in Pakistan where, thanks to the hope of his family, he begins to recover but it seems to take many years for him to regain normal senses because the last torture session inflicted a permanent brain damage. This reminds me of the unspeakable crimes that took place at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp during the Bush Administration. In any case, this film would give you an insight into the difficulties to understand a different culture and human minds with other cultural background.
