January 2005 Events

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.
