Best Content Based On Indo-Pak Partition

14th August is a special date for all Pakistanis.

We all are very much aware of the sacrifices our forefathers have made to give us a secure future and our own homeland.

With all the gratitude and zest for Independence Day, We at People Pakistan list down some of the amazing content produced by Indo-Pak partition.

1. Daastan (Drama)

Built on the true events of partition of 1947, the series depicts the events of rioting and chaos in 1947.

The drama depicts the story of Bano, a girl from a close knit Muslim family living in Ludhiana (located in undivided Punjab) in the pre-1947 era. The story follows Bano and Hassan, as they face the trials and tribulations caused by the 1947 independence.
Trust us when we say there wont be one dry eye at the end of the show. Its a gem which can be rewatched again and again.

2. Train to Pakistan

Based on Khushwant Singh’s novel, Train to Pakistan hits all the right notes regarding the journey of Hindus and Muslims at the time of Partition. Directed by Pamela Rooks, the Bollywood film was released in 1998.

3. Kartar Singh

Kartar Singh is rightly considered as one of the finest films to come out of Pakistan. It is, in fact, a rather balanced (as balanced as can be) and sensitive film on the Partition. The film is set in a symbolic pre-partition Punjab village in India where Hindus, Sikhs and Muslim live in harmony.

It is considered to be one of the super hit blockbuster Punjabi films in Pakistan. This film was also shown for three years in East Punjab, India.

4. Jinnah (Film)

Jinnah is a 1998 Pakistani–British epic biographical film which follows the life of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. It was directed by Jamil Dehlavi. It stars Christopher Lee in the lead role as Jinnah.

5. Khamosh Paani

Not exactly based on the events of partition, Khamosh Paani is a 2003 Indo-Pakistan film about a widowed mother and her young son living in a Punjabi village as it undergoes radical changes during the late 1970s.

Shot in a Pakistani village, the film was also released in India. It won several awards.
