PACHA

The short movie represents the life of common people, especially Indian citizens living in a cosmopolitan city like Dubai. The film is relevant as the United Arab Emirates(UAE) is celebrating this year (2019) as 'YEAR OF TOLERANCE'. The story shows the mindset of people towards people belonging to different religion, profile and nationality, etc. As the title says 'PACHA', what Indians normally calling Pakistani's, the story revolves around an incident that happened with Indian citizens and a Pakistani citizen living in UAE. The main characters are Indian citizens Salim and Joppan but both are having a different mindset or varying helping mentality. The other main character is a Pakistani citizen Razi, the so-called 'PACHA'. Salim has an affinity towards helping everybody as much as he can fall in a financial tight. The film starts with the travel scene of Salim and his friend Joppan. Salim was upset and in urgent need of money, whereas Abhilash(Friend of Salim) who was also indebted to Salim was refused from paying back. Joppan was accusing Salim of helping Abhilash, whereas Joppan also not helping Salim in this situation. There comes Razy, a Pakistani refugee who came to the city in search of a job. He is coming from the outskirts of the city and in a situation, nobody is there to help. Razi accidentally met Salim and joppan and requesting for financial help to reach back home in RAK. Salim helping Razy (The Pacha) with a small amount despite joppan's resistance (and the financially tight situation he is going through) and leaving the site satisfactorily. Upon receiving the money Razi going to do some unfair things which we never believe. The rest of the story is something we are not expecting. Every character in this story is representing whoever watching this film. The story ends with a great message such that it never helps anybody with any expectation and by seeing the look of people. The only thing to remember is humanity should be the basis for helping everyone not their attire, profile or nationality.
