The film had its World Premier in Contemporary World Cinema category at the Toronto International Film Festival 2013. Set amidst the ethnic cleansing and general chaos that accompanied India’s partition in 1947, this sweeping drama portrays Irrfan Khan as a Sikh attempting to forge a new life for his family while keeping their true identities a secret from their community. Beautiful, timeless and touching the deepest of human impulses, Qissa carries the spirit of a great folk tale.[/box_info]
