Story: Based on Urdu novel Jheel Jalti Hai, the film aspires to be an iconic love story of Jamaal (Faissal Khan) and Suraiyya (Inayat Sharma). Sadly, more than the somber story, the experience of watching this film is more tragic.

Review: You feel sorry for Faissal Khan and probably more for yourself for having to sit through this ordeal/ unintentional comedy. It's so bad that it makes Mela look Oscar-worthy.

If you must know the story, Jamaal and Suraiyya are childhood friends-turned-lovers. Since both are poor, Suraiyya's uncle gets her married to a rich old man Salaam, hoping for her better future. Trouble ensues when Salaam kills Jamaal's mother for declaring that Suraiyya belongs to her son. Seething with rage, Jamaal seeks revenge and brutally kills Salaam, also refusing to forgive Suraiyya for deceiving him. Can their eternal love overcome the odds?

Shot in the gorgeous valleys and snow-clad hills of Kashmir, the location is the only good thing about this poorly made film. The film fails to deliver on multiple grounds. The background score is not in sync with the mood of the scene, usage of Urdu is limited to mashaallah, janaab and hasrat bhari nigahen.

The heroine speaks in a sickly elderly voice and hams to the extent that Rakhi's Karan Arjun act pales in comparison. She calls herself 'khubsurat' every two minutes. Faissal looks 50 and is made to act like a 20-year-old, which is disturbing. His constant angry expression comprises arched eyebrows and enlarged blood shot eyes. Physical resemblance to Aamir (especially in Fanaa) is uncanny but that is where the similarity ends. We wish the actor would have chosen a better comeback vehicle instead of this random film.

Chinar, which presents its lead actors as messiahs of true love is dated and inconsequential. Terribly disappointing.
