When Allama Iqbal wrote the above couplet he never knew that the seeds sown by the British would lead to the creation of India and Pakistan. The land nurtured by the romantic poetry of Ghalib became a battleground. Friends for generations were separated forever in the name of partition. Humanity was buried under hatred.
Sheen, the love bird from Pakistan flies down to Lucknow, the city of Nawabs. Faiz, the poet at heart, is mesmerised by the angelic beauty from heaven. Across rooftops and in the by lanes of Lucknow blossoms the innocent love of Sheen and Faiz.
Bloodshed in the name of supremacy is a common phenomenon in India and Pakistan. Sheen
s entire family was engulfed in gang wars in Pakistan. The violence she hated and thought she left behind in Pakistan accidentally creeps into her love life. Sheen and Faiz would face any thunderstorm to protect the flame of love.
Thus begins the soulful journey of the love birds... Ishq Ke Parindey.
