Does Ranjit catch Bakthawar? Watch the movie to know.
Sanjat Dutt is one of the finest actors of Bollywood. His work has been remarkable.In Sarhad Paar his role was depicted as a strong, dedicated and passionate army man who could give his life for the safety of his country but somehow one feels that he is sometimes overacting. Mahima and Tabu have done a convincing job.
The movie though has an ensemble of good artists, is not presented well.
The movie conveys a strong message of patriotism.
What's not there?
Sarhad Paar….a movie that will disappoint if you go with great expectations.
