Pakistan's very own cult comedy!!
18 October 2014 | by (Rawalpindi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

First off, I want to say that I didn't have many expectations from NMA considering that it was a film by newbies but 10 minutes into the movie I was awe-struck with the fluidity of it all. Barring the final few minutes, NMA is exceptional.

Many people say that it is 'copied off' of other flicks like Hera Pheri and Delhi Belly. Yes, it borrows some elements from these films but that doesn't make it a copy but rather an inspired venture.

The best thing about this movie is the cinematography. It is brilliant. The camera angles used throughout flick add another dimension to the film. May it be fixed on a box of gulab jamuns or the corner of a rickshaw; the DoPs of NMA have done an exceptional job in making it a visual treat.

Acting-wise I would say that everyone played their roles to perfection apart from Urwa and Kubra. Their characters, specifically Kubra's bank manager avatar, were a tad too weakly acted for the script.

And Billi, how can I miss her? Her sultry item song was a cherry-topping for the movie. I have seen many item songs from across the border and I can safely say that Mehwish Hayat's Billi trumps them all. It is simplistic and yet very, very catchy.

My only complaint with this movie is the ending. In my opinion it should have ended 4-5 minutes before rather than being dragged out like that. It was sort of an anti-climax and looks obtrusively forced.

Conclusively, an awesome film that is well worth the time for the laughs it produces. However, on a note of caution (considering our non-existent rating system), it is strictly not a family-friendly film as some jokes/scenes are quite lurid!
