Lahoriye Plot, Story Summary and Review
Lahoriye is mostly an emotional and romantic movie that revolves around two central characters: a boy from Ferozepur, India and a girl from Lahore, Pakistan.
The film starts with a few visuals from the time of the partition between India and Pakistan. It shows two small kids being separated due to partition. Presently, Kikkar Singh (Amrinder Gill) is an honest clerk in the government transport office. He lives in an ancient but sprawling house located near the Indo-Pakistan border with his grandfather, parents, brother and his wife and a son. Kikkar and his father constantly request Kikkar’s grandfather to let them demolish the ancient house and build a new, better and stronger bungalow at its place. But he refuses every time.
One day, Kikkar’s mother urges him to go to their field to overlook the agricultural work. The field is located across the border, so he has to necessarily take a BSF personnel with him to the field. While ploughing the field on his tractor, Kikkar sees a beautiful Ameeran (Sargun Mehta) on the Pakistan side of the border. He is instantly smitten by her beauty. He then starts going to his field everyday in order to catch a glimpse of Ameeran.
One day, he throws a letter across the border to Ameeran, who takes it and keeps it hidden with herself. Since the letter is written in Punjabi and Ameeran cannot read Gurumukhi script, she buys herself a translation book in order to understand the contents of the letter. Kikkar then decides to pay her a visit in Pakistan. He gets a visa and goes to Pakistan to meet Ameeran. But he is spotted by Naseem Khan (Yuvraj Hans) – Ameeran’s landlord’s son, who warns him to not even dare play with Ameeran’s family’s reputation. But when Kikkar sheepishly explains that he really likes Ameeran, Naseem promises that he will help him meet Ameeran.
Kikkar and Ameeran meet at a family function, where Kikkar confesses his love. Touched, Ameeran also admits reluctantly that she loves him too. Naseem takes Kikkar to Ameeran’s house and introduces him to her family as his own friend from India. Ameeran’s parents grow fond of Kikkar and ask if he would be willing to marry their daughter. Elated on the inside, Kikkar says yes and asks for their permission to go back to his village and convince his own parents for their marriage. He also comes to know that the house he lives in presently actually belonged to Ameeran’s grandfather.
Just as he is about to leave, Naseem’s father, an MLA and the landlord of Ameeran’s house, arrives and expresses his disapproval for the marriage. But Kikkar leaves anyway, determined that he would marry Ameeran. It takes some convincing on Kakkar’s part to convince his parents, but they eventually do agree for his marriage. Kikkar then goes to convince his uncle, Zorawar Singh, who’s also an aspiring MLA. He expresses his unwillingness for this marriage, but is convinced by his daughter Harleen Kaur (Nimrat Khaira).
The entire family then arrives at Lahore for Kikkar’s marriage. Meanwhile, Naseem falls in love with Harleen. But when Kikkar notices this, he talks to Harleen privately and advises her to not get involved with a Pakistani guy. Ameeran overhears this conversation and confronts Kikkar for being such a hypocrite. She then tells him that she can’t marry him. But Ameeran’s old, ailing grandfather asks both Ameeran and Kikkar to not let their holy matrimony be ruined by such petty reasons. Kikkar realises his mistake and apologises to both Ameeran and Harleen.
Naseem’s father notices that his son and Harleen like each other. He talks to Harleen’s father and proposes to marry them along with Kikkar and Ameeran. Harleen’s father feels offended by this and declares that not only he won’t marry his daughter to Naseem, but he also won’t let Kikkar marry Ameeran. Following an emotional monologue by Kikkar, the Indian family departs from Ameeran’s house. Subsequently, Naseem’s father becomes an MLA.
Back in Ameeran’s place, her grandfather requests his family members, including Naseem’s father, to let Ameeran marry Kikkar because he feels that that way a part of his soul would be able to reside in his own house in Punjab (India). He also adds that even after decades, he hasn’t forgotten the memory of the house where he spent his childhood and can even locate it with his eyes closed.
Naseem’s father proposes that once at the threshold of Kakkar’s village in Punjab, if the old man could reach the house with a blindfold on his eyes, then he would happily give up his MLA seat and marry Kikkar and Ameeran. The old man accepts this and is taken to India. Outside the village, a blindfold is tied on his eyes. Slowly, but with resolute strides, Ameeran’s grandfather eventually locates Kakkar’s house (which used to be his own before partition) and embraces Kakkar’s grandfather. The two young boys shown in the beginning of the movie were actually the grandfathers of Kikkar and Ameeran respectively.
In the climax, Kikkar is shown to be married to Ameeran, who is now living in Punjab (India) in Kakkar’s house with his family, while Harleen is married to Naseem. She lives in Pakistan and has a kid.
