Based on an Indian movie
Prisoner 786 was imprisoned in Pakistan for 22 years. No one knew why. No one ever tried to figure out why, until that Pakistani lawyer. She found it a weird case. She entered the cell and found that prisoner holding an anklet with his hand. No one knew his name; they all called him Prisoner 786. Prisoner 786 started having flashbacks while telling his story to his lawyer.
They were facing each other when the rescuers were raising them. He was so close to her, close enough to come forward and kiss her, but they both don’t know each other. She was from Pakistan and he was from India. Zaara, she was named. She came all the way from Pakistan to immerse her grandmother’s ashes in India. On her way to India, the bus has toppled down from the mountains to the valley. He was Veer, a squadron leader and a rescue pilot. When the accident happened, his co-workers let him go down to the valley from the helicopter by a rope to rescue the passengers. Veer by chance had to rescue Zaara.
Zaara was so scared; she embraced her arms around Veer’s shoulder. Veer couldn’t stop looking at her. Veer, Zaara, and all the passengers have spent the night in the bus station. The next day at 7 a.m., Veer was taking a bus to reach his village, and Zaara was taking another bus to the village where she’s going to immerse her grandmother’s ashes. There were no places on Zaara’s bus, so she had to sit on the bus’s board. Veer started feeling guilty to leave Zaara alone in India, so he decided to help her. They introduced each other on the bus’s board that was leaving to Kiritpur (village where Zaara was going to immerse the ashes).
It was an enjoyable trip, they sang, danced, and viewed the beautiful land of India. They continued their trip walking sometimes and on horses the other times. Veer took Zaara to the river; they immersed the ashes and did the last rites for her grandmother. After finishing this process, Veer dropped Zaara to the bus station and told her how to reach Pakistan. To honor Veer’s hard work, Zaara pleased Veer to ask for anything just to thank him. Veer’s wish was to take from Zaara one day of her life. Veer felt that Zaara’s going to leave without a sweet memory. Pleasurably, Zaara accepted.
Veer started showing Zaara his village and he greeted her to his parents. Veer’s parents have the biggest house in the village. Veer’s parents have built this village. On that night, there was an annual festival that was prepared by the people. Next morning, Zaara had to leave. Zaara called Veer’s parents mom and dad. “You’ve given me a lifetime of memories and relationships,” Zaara said. On their way to the train station, Zaara fell on the floor. She dropped her anklet, so Veer took it and put it in his pocket.
She faced that guy in the train station. She was shocked when she saw him. Veer started wondering who he would be. She introduced him as her fiancé. Veer froze! Raza, Zaara’s fiancé came from Pakistan because he was worried about Zaara. Raza was on the bus, and Zaara was saying goodbye to Veer. In that little moment, Veer confessed love to Zaara.
Zaara’s father was putting his first steps in politics with the help of Raza’s father. When Zaara confessed her love to her maid, her maid directly called Veer secretly and said, “Zaara’s in love with you and she’s getting married soon. Come to Pakistan and take Zaara away”. Those words filled Veer’s heart with happiness.
Without telling anyone, Veer left to Pakistan, though an Indian Air Force pilot is prohibited to come to Pakistan. Zaara’s maid, Shabbo, welcomed Veer in the train station, and gave him a place to stay in. Zaara’s wedding is tomorrow. Veer appeared in the middle of Zaara’s house. Zaara ran and hugged him. Zaara’s dad fainted when he saw this. Raza started searching for Veer everywhere in Pakistan. Zaara’s mom predicted where Shabbo will be hiding Veer. Being a good mother and a wife, Zaara’s mom begged Veer to leave town and let this wedding pass. Zaara’s dad won’t be able to bear the shame. He will lose in politics and will die since he can’t handle more shocks. Veer promised Zaara’s mom to talk to Zaara and will end everything.
The next day, Veer decided to leave his love in Pakistan and disappear to India. Just before the bus will leave, a police came and took Veer to the police station. The Pakistani police forced Veer to sign on a paper and to claim to be another person who is sending Pakistani information to India. Raza prepared everything to prison Veer. Veer could get witnesses, but he didn’t want to ruin Zaara’s wedding and life. He had no choice but to sign that paper.
The bus that was Veer on, made an accident before it reached India and nobody survived. Veer’s name was on the passenger’s list. His parents and Zaara thought that Veer died. As a matter of fact, that person scarified 22 years of his life in prison to honor and grace Zaara’s name.
The lawyer begged Veer to get someone from Zaara’s family as a witness or to mention Zaara’s name. But Veer honorably refused under any circumstances to mention Zaara’s name. Veer said that Zaara by now will be the mother of two children one 21 years and the other 19 years. The lawyer decided to go to India to bring Veer’s identity from his country.
When the lawyer asked for Veer’s parents, she was told that they died long time ago. But she can always visit the house, it is always open. When she reached there she saw kids playing around, more like a kindergarten. She turned her back and wanted to leave, as she heard someone calling: “Zaara, Zaara.” She was shocked and started looking who’s Zaara? Shabbo was there too. The lawyer fell crying on the floor and asked Shabbo what have happened.
Shabbo explained that after hearing about Veer’s death, Zaara called off the marriage. Zaara’s father himself got her divorced. Zaara came to India to help Veer’s parents achieve Veer’s dream come true. Zaara’s father left politics, and two years later died. A few years later, Zaara’s mother also died. Even though Veer’s parents died as well but Zaara won’t go back to Pakistan. Veer who so easily scarified 22 years of his life to protect Zaara’s honor, and Zaara who spent 22 years of her life in a strange land to keep Veer’s dream alive. God has been testing Veer and Zaara intensely.
The lawyer took Zaara to the court. Zaara’s testimony, photographs, and documents presented by her proved the identity of Veer. The Pakistani court exonerates Veer, and the state of Pakistan and the Pakistani court asked for Veer’s forgiveness. Veer married Zaara and pointed a red spot on her forehead. India was waiting for Veer. Veer took Zaara’s hand to continue what’s left of life with her.
