Revival of Pakistani cinema
3 August 2007 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This movie has done a pretty good job to Revive Pakistani cinema, many good and educated families for the very first time visited cinemas and public response about KKL was superb. Cinemas houses were packed and even lot of people come back home again for the next show or waited in a long queue to watch this movie. Shoaib Mansoor is a brilliant director and film producer, his new venture was like a RAPID FIRE which burnt the whole country crowd with fumes of excitement and applause.We expect that he will continue this effort of giving good movies to Pakistan Film Industry which is almost dead.We are proud of legendary star - Mr Shoaib Mansoor.
