violence violence violence(awful)be aware of it
23 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

There is no word so violent, no phrase so full of anguish to describe this horrible and brutal movie of Pakistani cinema. the movie which was ought to set new standards for the edifice of our cinema, completely murders it. The movie is about fictional characters living in some rural area of Punjab with murder and violence on their mind. The movie has nothing to offer and is complete waste of time as it depiction is truly base on violence. The movie interprets the wrong side of our culture and is a great blob on our industry which can't be watch out. I was amazed to know that this movie set a new records for box office,till Churiyan broke the record .
