Movie Review: Shah set to get standing ovations in every show !

Review by Arsalan Ali


After almost forty years, three Pakistani movies are going to release on Pakistan’s Independence Day (today). Moor by veteran video director Jami, Dekh Magar Pyaar Say by Asad ul Haq, who is also a well known face and Shah by Adnan Sarwar, a formula one racer turned musician and now a movie producer, director and actor. The experience of former two directors made it difficult for Shah to create much hype and expectation before release but guess what, the movie succeeded to get standing ovation in just twenty minutes of the first half during its premiere in Karachi.

moor movie review

Bollywood movies have been doing good business in Pakistan for a long time. Some of them have even crossed Rs 25 crores land mark on box office, which not a single Pakistani movie has touched at home yet. The success formula seems quite simple, cast big names of your industry, choose an emotional subject or add some masala, and before you decide to release your film, release an item number to create some hype. For a practical, may be, a few of the recently released Pakistani movies have successfully tried this formula but Jami’s production debut movie Moor has totally refused it and rather touched an unpopular subject with a mixture of mostly new cast along with some forgotten faces. The fate of the Moor will be decided on this Independence Day but thumbs up to whole team and particularly to Jami for bringing our attention towards a forgotten issue and showing some extremely breathtaking visuals from Baluchistan.

bin roye movie review mahira khan

HUM TV has finally premiered its most awaited movie Bin Roye, featuring the gorgeous Mahira Khan as Saba, Humayun Saeed as Irtiza and Pakistani-Canadian actress Armeena Rana Khan as Saman. Mahira, who had given two years of her life to this movie, has shown great acting skills, especially during emotional scenes after the interval. Humayun, though looks a little older, but is not a bad choice for those who have read Farhat Istiaq’s novel. As for new-comer Armeena Rana, she did justice with her supporting role in the movie. The movie is a pure family drama with romance, some suspense and many emotions. It is about Saba’s lost love, regrets, and reunion with Irtiza. (more…)
