A mighty topical film, that's mighty engrossing too, Winterbottom's take on the Daniel Pearl murder is an edge of the seat thriller that hits hard, and touches your heart. The story is familiar and part of post 9/11 headlines. Based on the book by Mariane Pearl, the widow of Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl, the film follows the kidnapping, the hunt and the aftermath of Pearl's murder by Pakistani jehadis.

A five-month pregnant Marianne waits for her husband to return after an undisclosed assignment in Karachi. And when he doesn't, she sets about trying to hunt for him in a city that is chaotic and spilling over with rebels and fundamentalists. Of course, she has the FBI to help her, but she also has our very own Irrfan Khan who plays a Pakistani intelligence officer with usual competence. No where does the film get maudlin and overtly sentimental and never loses the voice of sanity, despite the sensitive issue and the expedient times.

In the end, what remains after a futile search is Marianne's million dollar message: the terrorists' purpose was to scare us, but we are not scared. Go for the topicality of the film, the balanced tenor and the Oscar-worthy performance by Jolie.
