Celebrate brotherhood on the eve of Independence Day with Lashtam Pashtam
Lashtam Pashtamis the last movie of the late veteran actor Om Puri who breathed his last on January 7, 2017. But at the same time, it is the debut movie of director Manav Bhalla. The movie is an attempt to thaw the strained Indo-Pak relations but in a very human way. Instead of including the communities of both the countries, the story uses two friends.
The beautiful story of Lashtam Pashtam
The beauty of the story is its simplicity. Two childhood buddies celebrate their friendship in every possible way without considering their nationalities. They are friends but for their families, they are Indian and Pakistani. And as expected, their communities try separating them. They are asked to maintain a distance because they are political enemies.
Two children – Indian and Pakistani – are born in UAE; they are brought up together and they form a close on growing up. When their families come to know about their friendship, they are warned that their friendship won’t materialize. But they are friends forever and they want to remain friends despite knowing that their countries are always at war.
