There have been many films that essayed the political tension surrounding India and Pakistan. While these stories usually use the cross-border theme to create critical plot points, the filmmakers often forget to explore the lives of people hovering around these boiling regions. The tension here is mostly built across wars and missions where the leads emerge as a hero or a warrior. However, breaking this typical principle of cross-border stories, ZEE5’s upcoming original film Lahore Confidential is all set to redefine the genre.

Directed by Kunal Kohli, this spy-thriller features Richa Chadha, Arunoday Singh and Karishma Tanna in the lead roles. Revolving around Ananya, a RAW agent who’s on a secret mission in Pakistan, the film explores how Ananya’s love affair with Rauf, an ISI agent leaves her in the dilemma of her duties and personal life. The film’s trailer created a huge buzz among the masses and they appreciated the unique concept of the film.

Ahead of its release, here’s taking a look at a few reasons why you should not miss out on watching Lahore Confidential.

Personal Rather Than General

Unlike other cross-border films, Kunal Kohli’s Lahore Confidential has a personal approach to its central theme. The film will be exploring the personal lives of its main character while the political tension between India and Pakistan will be at the backdrop of the film. 

A loving bond between Ananya (Richa) and Rauf (Arunoday) will be at the heart of the film’s plot. Also, the treatment of the story will explore the personal emotions of characters dealing with the trauma of political background.

Crucial Themes

Lahore Confidential will capture some crucial themes including a cross-border love story, sacrifice and importance of national forces. While the plot promises to keep us engaged and entertained throughout the film, these subtle themes will make us aware of the important message the Richa Chadha starrer holds.

Apart from these themes, interesting and well-defined characters including bold Ananya, charming Rauf, and determined Karishma are the soul of Lahore Confidential.

Filled With Realism
