A bubbly Indian girl Aalia in trouble is forced by circumstances to place her faith in a Pakistani cab driver, Vicky, in Mauritius, who then takes it upon himself to make Aalia's safe return to India possible. Mauritius.
A story of a middle class guy, passionate about becoming an actor and prove his worthiness to his family. Ditching a job interview as a favor from a father to his son, the story leads to new endeavors.
Excellent effort. The revival of Pakistani cinema has seen some excellent and mature films come out this year. "Lahore Se Aagey" is one such film. Never a dull moment, the entire film is loaded with "pun intended" sentences. The script is done very intelligently, where none of the dialogue is wasted space. I found myself laughing my head off on numerous occasions, and it's been a long time any movie has had this effect on me. Hats off to the director, actors and everyone involved in the effort, and especially ARY for enabling such works of true, artful and spirited endeavors. We (the fans) understand that film making is not a commercial enterprise in Pakistan, and the rewards are minuscule compared to the immense effort that goes into making such films. From us the fans, a big thank you from the heart, and hope that you all continue this journey. If this is the beginning, then I am excited, as greater feats await and Pakistani cinema is very well on the path of a glorious revival.
