Paresh Rawal Stars In Yet Another Superb Film Following OMG – Oh My God! 2012.
2 June 2015 | by Vivekmaru45See all my reviews

Love of humanity follows no caste or creed. The main message of this beautiful film emphasizes this. The central character of this film Dharam Pal(Paresh Rawal) finds out upon the opening of a safe deposit box left by his late mother - that he is a child adopted from a Muslim couple.

Having been raised as a Hindu for so long, this comes as a rude awakening to him. He is left in a moral dilemma - whether to confide in his wife or not. He opts not to tell his wife, but confides his secret to his next-door neighbor Nawab Mehmood Shah(Anu Kapoor), who is a lawyer by profession. Nawab Shah helps him to find his real biological father.

Upon learning that his father has been found and is seriously ill, Dharam Pal rushes to meet him, but he is stopped by the Imaam who is taking care of his father.

He tells Dharampal that if his father saw that his only son has been brought up as a non-Muslim, it could cause severe damage to his health. Therefore, he tells Dharampal to learn how to become a true Muslim and come back to meet his father once he is ready.

Watch this excellent film to find out what happens next...

The film also stars veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah in the role of Neel Anand Baba.
