The story is set in Pakistan against the backdrop of the War on Terror and the prevalent consequences of the war that have stigmatised Pakistan as a country that breeds and indoctrinates terrorism. The filmmakers intended Son of Pakistan to enlighten the masses and the world at large about Pakistan and its people against the backdrop of the War on Terror's consequences. The filmmakers intended to counter a negative prejudice about Pakistan and its people as terrorists — and to show their perspective that the people of Pakistan follow a peaceful way of life.
The movie tells the story of a dutiful police officer S.P. Islam who comes from a patriotic upbringing as does his brother. Son of Pakistan depicts uncertainty in the concept of patriotism while taking the protagonist's perspective of compassion towards his fellow citizens when he cannot be certain that everyone shares his beliefs. In a place of uncertainty being an enforcer of law where he comes across a potential terrorist every day, he can't trust anyone and has only himself to trust.
This film was shot in the cities of Pakistan; it was also shot in Kallar Kahar Daman-e-koh Islamabad and farm house of Lahore and different locations of Lahore.
The film was released on 16 December 2011.
