NEW YORK - "Ramchand Pakistani", a full length feature film from Pakistan, scored another first: after last month's triumphant debut in the Tribeca Film festival in New York, it also evoked a good response in another major festival on the West Coast of the United States. The 2008 Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), the largest in the U.S., featured the film ably directed by Mehreen Jabber on Friday and Saturday in a Seattle cinema house. The 25-day Festival, which opened on May 22, will close on June 15 after  screening more than 400 feature, documentary, and short films from around the world. "Ramchand Pakistani" was warmly applauded by mainly American audiences. Unlike New York, Seattle does not have many South Asians. "The positive response from the Americans was very encouraging," Mehreen Jabbar told APP correspondernt on her return from Seattle on Monday. "I was surprise by the warm reception it received." Javed Jabbar, a former cabinet minister and senator, wrote the story of the film, which he also produced. The film tells the story of how an accidental border crossing affects the life of a poor Pakistani Hindu peasant family. Inspired by actual events, the narrative attempts to depict the heavy irony that underlies the relationship between Pakistan and India. Nandita Das, a Bollywood superstar, plays Champa, the woman whose eight-year-old son Ramchand and husband disappear from their village near Nagarparkar, located along the border with India where they held as spies. The film stars Syed Fazal Hussain in the title role. Pakistani actors in the cast include Rashid Farooqi, Noman Ijaz, Maria Wasti, Shahood Alvi, Tipu, Adarsh Ayaz and Saleem Mairaj. The film was shot in Nagarparkar and Islamkot, close to the Indian border.
