Story of movie Bharat
Bharat featuring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif as leads also features Sunil Grover and Disha Patani. The movie tried to depict a parallel story of a man and a country growing together as they both adjust to evolving social and economic norms. The movie takes you back to Indo-Pak partition and starts the story of a young boy named Bharat who came to India from Pakistan alongside his family, excluding his father and younger sister. The movie takes you across the roller coaster ride of Bharat, the country and the man, as they both focus on rebuilding their backyard.
Bharat movie takes you on a joyful ride as the lead protagonist shows his heroic act in Maut Ka Kuan and then works in oil fields in Arab. Amidst all the progressions, the hero is spellbound by staff at the Employment Office, Kumud Raina, played by Katrina Kaif. The story further progresses to taking Bharat across infinite seas and foreign soil, before eventually taking you back to the horrors of partitions as citizens from both the countries try to find their lost loved ones.
