Sunny Deol as Tara Sing charges from Amritsar to Lahore to set the city on fire for his beloved"

Gadar  is undoubtedly one of the most explosive movie ever shot across the border. Sunny Deol roars like a lion and is at his explosive best. Not to forget a memorable performance from Amisha Patel as well. The crowd at Hyderabad's Sapna theatre are all on their feet whenever Sunny Deol explodes and all in all its like a Indo-Pak match where there is a cheer for the home team.

There were reports that the movie was sold to the distributors after showing them the movie which is quite unconventional because the movies are never seen when a distributor buys them. This says it all about the movie and its got all the box office ingredients to be a super hit.

'GADAR - Ek Prem Katha' is a love saga set in 1947, during the troubled Partition times. The film is set in the lush greens of Punjab. The protagonist Tara Singh (Sunny Deol), plays a truck driver who comes across the beautiful Sakina (Amisha Patel) during one of his journeys. Love blossoms and grows silently. Then comes the trauma and hardship of Partition. 

The first half of the movie is entirely shot in India while in the second half the focus shifts to Pakistan where sunny Deol goes in search of his beloved and then at Lahore he is on a rampage.

The power packed dialogues of the movie leaves the audience wanting for more. Its like Sachin hitting a six and then the audience asking for more 6's.Amrish Puri as the Mayor of Lahore stand up to his role as the villain.

The film has been made in a budget of 18 crores, most of the money being used in recreating authentic sets of the period. The locations and the cinematography are splendid.

Except for the last 15 minutes of the movie where there is a continuous dishum,dishum, obviously to please the front benchers, the movie takes one back to the partition days where there is a realistic portrayal of the massacre that has hit both the nations whose wounds are still echoed even till this day even in the theatres of Hyderabad.
