Sarmad Sultan Khoosat
Danyal Adam Khan
Zainub Khan has been found guilty by Pakistan's Courts and is to be hanged. Her last wish is to tell her story before the media, and after approval, she relates how her family was compelled to leave Delhi during 1948 and re-locate to Lahore. This is where her father, Hakim Sayed Hashmutallah Khan, married Suraiya, and hoping to sire a son, instead ended up with 7 daughters. The 8th child turned out to be a hermaphrodite and Hashmutullah wanted it dead but Suraiya insisted that she will not let anyone know so as not to shame her husband. They named the child Saifullah, and hired a tutor to teach him at home. After a failed marriage, Zainub returns home, notices that the tutor was molesting her brother and asks him to leave. With dwindling income from his father, unable to attend school, his mother giving birth to still-born babies, his siblings uneducated, Saifullah is then himself compelled to seek employment. It is here he will be sexually molested and subsequently killed by his ... Written by
A phenomenal film, revealing the bitter realities of this society.
BOL, a much awaited Pakistani movie with huge expectations due to Shoib Mansoor's previous successful film KHUDA KAY LIYE and insertion of Atif Aslam and Iman Ali in the cast. The title of this movie is like ordering someone to speak out which runs parallel to the context of the film, inspiring the audience to raise their voices against the tyranny and brutality of our current society. This movie has got a well-written story, great direction, extra-ordinary acting by the lead roles, beautiful music and an incredible message to all the families of this world. The cons of this movie are the abusive language and over-criticism on the religion. Humaima Malick, Manzar Sehbai, Iman Ali and Shafqat Cheema gave an outstanding performance in their roles. Atif Aslam tried to perform good but his acting was just OK, although he did great in music collaborating with Hadiqa Kiyani. Shoib Manzoor did a great job in direction and story, pointing out the problems covering all the aspects of life and giving his own instructive solutions. Story: 9/10 Direction: 10/10 Acting: 9.5/10 Music: 9/10 Overall, BOL lived up to the expectations and its already a block-buster. It is a must watch film and worthy for your time and money. Rating: 9/10
