"Filmistaan" gradually morphs into a serious disquisition on Indo-Pakistani relations and the lingering animus from the nations' 1947 partition.

A story with great potential, it could have been better. But watch it anyway because its simplicity is beautiful.

It's seldom that we make introspective films laced with dark humour. It's great to find such superlative effort from first time filmmaker.

Filmistaan is a delightful film. It has heart, imagination and intelligence. It is a celebration of our enduring love affair with Hindi cinema. And it is a touching exploration of the shared humanity between Indians and Pakistanis.

The camaraderie between the pure souls who understand only the language of Bollywood is heart-warming. Datt, with few dialogues, is deadly.
