Putting a ban on this film makes it great
18 December 2016 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I was going to rate this film 7.5-8 based on direction and story as story is not entirely original, we have seen many films from other countries in the past where one hero rises and raise a voice against the corrupt leader and brings justice in unlawful way but still story telling and his direction is unique but some action scenes could have done better or there was no need to jump and shoot, you don't need that but considering Aashir's film directorial debut I will say it's a well made film still it wouldn't get a 10.

The reason I gave it a 10 is that it has been banned by the government, people are literally fed up seeing corruption everywhere, rich is getting richer who is getting away with anything and poor is getting poorer, being abused, no justice for them. One scene in the film where this rich family kids abuse this Pachto maid who works for them as she can't understand English the word "MILK" made me feel sick as growing up there I have seen this how we treat our maids and servants there which is inhumane absolutely no need for it, sadly I have done it myself when I lived there and I was young which I regret but why rich is getting richer and poor is getting poorer. Why? open mafia political system in the country, so called democracy, one political mafia family (Bhuttos) from Sindh takes over then next turn is other family (Nawaz) which is from Punjab they take over both come and rob the country as much as they could in mafia style, starting with rigged elections as it is a poor country majority of population is poor, small percentage is rich. One vote all it cost is one time good meal, get them chicken korma they will be over the moon instead of their daily daal (lentils) or some vegetables and yes that poor person will give you the vote. Government begs money from US and UK, take billions of loan and it goes all in the family's pocket.

Conclusion: This film shows a small part of corruption in our society, yes I am saying small as our country is so infested with corruption that it makes it a small part. This film's a cliché but this is all happening, it's all true, this country is going back and back as most of countries are moving forward but it is going backward, people are turned against each other based on stupid reasons like cast, religion so corrupt people can divide and rule. People need to wake up. I am glad there are movies made on real issues thanks to Shoman who started it all. I watched this film on YOUTUBE I wish I would have gone to cinema to watch it if it is released in the UK I would go just to show my support, it is one of finest film made in Pakistan. I would definitely recommend to watch it.
