Zar Gul--BRILLIANT Pakistani movie. A MUST SEE !
19 November 2009 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The story, the acting, the direction are all top-notch by international standards. The film is about a young "pathan" who becomes an outlaw but hero to the poor after his father is killed by a crooked politician. The film exposes the injustice and corruption in Pakistan especially the politics and police. That reality is one of a country in decay. In a grand sweep through the rugged landscape of the northwest, the story of Zar Gul's life unfolds. As a boy he sees his father murdered. The youngster is then kidnapped and forced into slavery by a local bandit. Appalled by the suffering he witnesses in the slave camp, Zar Gul resolves to fight injustice wherever he encounters it. Years later, as a successful and philanthropic businessman, he recognizes his childhood abductor, Yar Bad-shah, who is capping a career as enslaver, drug dealer and murderer by entering politics - with the backing of the feudal elite whose dirty work he has been doing for so long. Zar Gul sets out to destroy Yar Badshah and expose the criminal elements behind him.

Though we have witnessed many movies on this Topic, but the thing that differ it from other movies is its SCREENPLAY. it really gain your attention from the beginning. i watched that movie almost 7 years ago in a film festival. and i m eagerly waiting for its DVD release.
