Esse filme eh muito bom, assisti pela indicacao da Maria, e amei! Mas confesso que chorei um bocado..
Esse filme eh paquistanes, foi gravado no Paquistao e tambem no Estados Unidos. Relata sobre um jovem que vai estudar nos Estates antes do atentado de 11 de setembro e tudo o que ele sofre depois, ao menos tempo mostra como o irmao dele se torna extremista e tambem conta a estoria de uma jovem que o pai forca o casamento no Pak.

Khuda Kay Liye

Three different people from different continents have problems that relate to on going issues and Islam.

Two brothers who are both singers, Mansoor (Shaan) & Sarmad (Fawad), become the best singers in Lahore. Sarmad becomes influenced by an Islamic activist. He begins to practice the extremist interpretation of Islam, grows a beard and goes against music, also putting pressure on his free-spirited family to comply. Those parties interpret certain verses of the Quran and Hadith (Islamic religious texts) to call for a ban on music and pictures; an opinion held by Muslim scholars worldwide.

In England, a girl Mary/Mariam( played by actor-model Iman Ali) is a free girl in love with a white person named Dave. Her hypocritical father disapproves, despite the fact that he is living with a British woman to whom he is not married. He tells Mary that they are going to Pakistan for a trip and that when they return she can marry Dave. This, however is a trap- While touring Afghanistan, he has her forcibly married to Sarmad, who is her cousin. Mary is then abandoned in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, Mansoor goes to music school in Chicago. There, he meets a girl named Janie and instantly falls in love with her. She quits alcohol for his sake, and they eventually get married. After 9/11, FBI officers capture him when someone overhears a man accusing Mansoor of being a terrorist in a drunken stupor and this results in a year of torture for him because of his Islamic background.

Meanwhile, Mary manages to run away, but is caught by Sarmad in the process. She is kept under strict supervision and due to this incident, Sarmad eventually consummates their marriage by force. She doesn't lose hope, managing to sneak a letter to Dave under the guise of writing to her father. Mansoor and Sarmad's parents finally come to her rescue under the protection of the British Government, but Mary, driven by vengeance, then takes her father and cousin to court in Pakistan. There, a wise Maulana (Naseeruddin Shah) explains to the court how Islam is being butchered in the name of war and hatred, bringing the religion forward in a believable and peaceful manner.

Traumatized by all the suffering he has seen and caused, Sarmad withdraws from the case. He also realizes the damage that he was made to do in the name of religion. Mary is now free, but decides to return to the village where she was kept prisoner, so she can educate the girls there. Meanwhile, Mansoor is still in U.S. custody after a year of torment; the last torture session having inflicted permanent brain damage. After a failed rehab attempt, he is deported and reunited with his family in Pakistan where, thanks to the hope of his family, he begins to slowly recover.
