Blinded by the Light
Starring Viveik Kalra as Javed, a 16-year-old British Pakistani boy growing up in 1987 Thatcher’s England, the film sees his discovery of The Boss via a cassette tape – and through the tape, a self-discovery of who he is to his family and who he actually wants to be. Musical sequences, unfulfilled dreams of being a writer and girl troubles imbue the film with substance along with, of course, Springsteen’s songs. Based on a true story (of co-writer Sarfraz Manzoor), BLINDED BY THE LIGHT becomes a story of how family makes us, but our hopes and dreams are what can mark our path for the future – and both are equally as important.
