Ramchand Pakistani – a film to watch


Catch this thought provoking independent film in cinemas across the UK from July 17th, 2009 – it is well worth watching on the silver-screen and the characters will jump out at one, making one feel deep empathy and remind oneself of the horrid injustices of life and how people cope with them on a daily basis.

Ramchand is a young boy living with his low caste Hindu parents on the Thar Desert border between Pakistan and India. When he runs away from home he accidentally crosses the border into India and is arrested as a spy. A riveting and highly emotive drama based on a true story.
