One of the best movies I've seen
18 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Artistic, mind-boggling, immaculate, simply said: beautiful.

Iram Bilal, you have turned something important yet common and overlooked into a piece of art worth watching again and again, congratulations.

Acting, dialogue, cinematography are not the only things good about this film, the message it conveys is what tops everything else. Injustice is fought with courage, quotes of Allama Iqbal on the onset of this movie sets the tone for what is to come. Light is shed on how the prerequisites for a just society are missing in the rural and urban classes alike.

Fatima a schoolteacher played by Aamina Sheikh looks to find justice in a harsh and unjust society. Anything further said about the plot will take away the experience of watching this film for the first time.
