This drama focuses on a young Pakistani man (Shaan) who goes to America as a student for further studies.

During his years of higher education, the tragic events of 9/11 takes place.

In the investigations that follow, this young man gets arrested by the American authorities.

The film then focuses on his brother, a Muslim singer who is being encouraged by his old friend Shershah Hameed Sheikh to refrain from any sort of musical activity in favour of God's path.

He falls in love with an American woman but refuses to marry her because she is not a follower of Islam.

He too gets arrested during the 9/11 aftermath by the FBI authorities. Despite his experiences in prison, he maintains his focus of what he believes in.

Meanwhile, his uncle (Humayun Kazmi) arrives in Pakistan from London with his cousin Mary (Iman Ali). She wants to marry her English boyfriend back in the UK against her parents' wishes.

The uncle forcefully brings her to Pakistan and marries her off to her cousin who has taken a path of Jihad.

She is held captive in a remote tribal village near Afghanistan where she lives among people not exposed to the outside world - and finds comfort in their company.

Filmed in some beautiful locations in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Khuda Ke Liyee has many memorable moments.

This thought-provoking film will not only spark a debate on individuals' religious beliefs but will also leave a long lasting impact.

Khuda Ke Liyee marks the directorial debut of Shoaib Mansoor who shows great potential as a movie maker.

He has used a simple story to portray the various aspects of Islam which people of other religions will understand.

Distributors Bollywood Films is releasing Khuda Ki Liye (meaning in the name of God) in UK cinemas on 2 November 2007. A must see by all!
