Extremely bad
21 December 1999 | by (Trøndelag, Norway) – See all my reviews

Karachi is an extremely bad movie. This is must an example for most movie-makers how not to make a movie. Everything is wrong here: Actors, plot, effects, sound, colors etc. Even those actors who are considered as good ones becomes bad in this one. The movie is also very dull and confusing.
