A Must Watch
18 August 2015 | by (Karachi) – See all my reviews

A Must Watch for all Pakistanis

How well the movie has shown us our sidelined heroes. The journey of winning the games without basic necessities (like a shoe) is mind blowing. Shah movie truly captures the hearts and minds of the Pakistani people and truly one of the signs that Pakistani Cinema is now on the road to producing some quality stuff. Shah was given an award from Bank Alfalah on the premier of the movie however just goes to show that we actually need to support our stars during their time of need.

A Must watch!
