Set in 1979, the film captures Pakistan as Islamic militancy was just finding its footing. The Russians were about to invade Afghanistan. The shah was deposed in Iran. Clerics and fundamentalist college teachers were rabble-rousing the young all over the region.And Ayesha (Kiron Kher) would love to protect her son, Saleem (Aamir Ali Malik), from all this. He’s a lovesick lad of about 20, not working anywhere, just looking for his next chance to sneak out with his girl to their favorite make-out spot.
