3rd I in Association with Balboa Theatre Presents:
Fri Jan 28th to Wed Feb 2nd
With just the right balance of epic grandeur and break-into-song
goofi-ness, this Bollywood love legend does double duty as a women’s-rights
manifesto and a plea for amity between India and Pakistan. Hindu
rescue pilot Veer Singh (Shah Rukh Khan) and feisty Pakistani heiress
Zaara Khan (Preity Zinta) move from harrowing meet-cute to exuberant
cultural exchange, then plunge into an enforced separation involving
Zaara’s arranged marriage and Veer’s unjust imprisonment.
Low-lidded Rani Mukherjee plays the Pakistani human rights lawyer
for whom Veer’s case is a chance to achieve justice, reunite
the lovers, and pave the way for other young women to practice law.
Director Yash Chopra manages to fight several culture wars while
milking the melodrama.” - Laura Sinagra, Village Voice.
