Love blossoms between two men from different sides of the border.

My impressions:

It is always a challenge to be in love with someone from a different background. Further complications arise because they are from two opposite sides which have been perpetually at war with each other for a long time.

The dilemma, choices and decisions that has to be made in the name of love is told with compassion in the film. There is a tinge of sadness that engulfs the lovers facing so many obstacles. Their tender moments compensate the frustrations felt. We want them to succeed but will they ?

Most probably relationships such as this still abound and one wonders how are they surviving.
