That's not the point ...
28 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The writer of the review of this iconic flick forgets the impact that this huge picture has had on generations of Punjabi film fans. Ask any Pakistani and he'll tell you about Maula Jatt. The review misses the irony and the point of the picture. You have to accept its poor production values, it's ham acting, and its violence. Think of Grindhouse and exploitation B movies of the 70'sand you'll get the idea. You have to also remember that relative audience of these films are minute and its amazing they even get made. That aside, this in fact is the third in a series of films and also the most popular. Prior to this was Bashira and Wehshi Jat. The film is fundamentally a clash between two "tribes" or castes who are proud of their heritage and their honour. This idea of honour is a running theme. The Punjab of this film is about doing the right thing even if you have to sacrifice your life. It's interesting how the "gandasa" is depicted. The idea that the gandasa is an extension of Jat's personality and that when forced to the limits, he digs out his gandasa and blood is spilt! Err lots of it. The gandasa represents the fury of the Jat. The menacing performance of Mustapha Qureishi as Noori Nath has to go down as one of the greatest performances of Pakistani cinema. The film is over thirty years old and the classic dialogues are still uttered on the streets of Lahore and elsewhere - "Nava aaye sohinya!" - just cant beat it.
