Jinnah 1998
Pakistani director Jamil Dehlavi directs and co-writes (with Cambridge academic Akbar Ahmed) a compelling historical biopic on Mohammed Ali Jinnah (Christopher Lee), the founder of modern Pakistan.

Biography of Mohammed Ali Jinnah is told through flashbacks as his soul tries to find eternal rest. It takes place in the after-life, in modern times, as he tells his life story in a computer data library to a celestial scholar guide (Shashi Kapoor). Jinnah looks back at his youth, starting in 1916 Darjeeling; his political ambitions; his marriage to the Parsee beauty Ruttie (Indira Varma), who converted to Muslim; the lifetime help he received from his unmarried sister Fatima (Shireen Shah); his formative relationships with the movers of the day; the bloodshed over Pakistan's fight for independence; and how it was through his stubborn insistence on independence at all costs that the country was born in 1947 as an independent nation for Muslims.
