Videsh (2009) – A Heaven on Earth Review

The life of all NRI is just not great. Simply as the live of each Indians is not the same. Many fail to identify the truth and move to foreign land for betterment. The movie Videsh is a great example of what uncertainties await for many people. Preity Zinta as Chand, a young woman, leaves her home and loving family behind in India to build a new life in Canada. She moves to Brampton, Ontario and marries Rocky, a man she has never met. She finds herself trapped in a family where she gets no respect. She is expected to behave like a slave. She works at a factory cleaning and collecting napkins. Being bright and educated she cannot connect her to her new home. She misses India. A lot.
