Synopsis: Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a supercharged cross-border drama that goes all out – and then some – in delivering its message of subcontinental peace.
Director Kabir Khan pulls out an old chestnut – the theme of humanity trumping a history of bitterness.
Into this perennially bubbling cauldron, he throws a devout, upright Hindu do-gooder and an achingly beatific but speechless six-year-old Pakistani girl stranded on the Indian side of the border.
Bridging many divides – religion, national identity, food habits – the two develop an unlikely bond that wipes out all prejudices.
The man puts everything at stake, driven by his faith in Bajrangbali, to ensure that the lost girl makes it back home in one piece.
