The efforts of the Pakistani security forces in their fight against terrorism and how the lives of security officials are affected. A retired security officer returns to save Pakistan from a major terrorist attack.
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.
The film is based on stylized depiction of actual life events surrounding the war on terror in Pakistan including the attack on a Police Academy at Lahore in 2009. Major Mujtaba is a former army officer, who took an early retirement from the service. The plot involves a counter-terrorism operation being conducted in the Northwestern tribal region of Pakistan, led by Ehtesham and coordinated by an intelligence officer played by Ayesha. Ehtesham and the intelligence officer come to know of a major terrorist attack that can only be countered with the help of Major Mujtaba.Written by
Before i start,i want to clarify that I'm not a reviewer but merely a movie fanatic,so please excuse my poor language.
Watch this movie for Spectacular edge-of-the-seat Action Sequences,A Strong Plot,Some Top-Notch Acting and the Best Music Score ever in a Pakistani movie,It totally delivers what was promised in the trailer.For a Pakistani movie,this is extremely good and an Average Pakistani will surely enjoy it.Great job by the whole team,especially Mr.Bilal Lashari,you sir have proved that Pakistan can come out of watching dumb downed action movies.I'm looking forward to your next project.Extremely well job for someone so young and talented.It was worth the wait.
-Visually Spectacular,eye candy scenes,Top-Notch Action Sequences and Cinematography.The Action Sequences are gripping and on par with level of Hollywood movies,and the Screenplay is handled perfectly,except for a few scenes,the movie doesn't lag throughout it's length,which I think is the best trait of an action thriller.Extremely well job by the whole Editing team for bringing us this great cinematic experience.
-Direction is fresh and beautifully handled.Bilal Lashari delivered what he promised,and should be called a true perfectionist.His talent and enthusiasm reflects in each and every scene.The scene with the blend of Meesha and Shamoon's Waltz with Terrorist attack on police academy was an experiment done well.
-Plot wise,the movie is a bit biased against India,but that's pretty much the truth we face today,it's RAW vs PAK throughout the movie,a few plot holes here and there but it won't disappoint.It is very solid and true to a great extent,shows us the facts that caused our current scenario.Thumbs up to Mr.Hassan Rana,who did a fine job.What i loved about it was that it doesn't offend the intelligence of the viewer.The whole movie was handled perfectly except the ending,which i think was was poorly executed and hurried.The melodrama should have been avoided.That's the reason I rate it 8/10
-Acting wise,everyone did justice to their roles,particular mentions to Ayesha Khan and Hamza Abbasi for the brilliant chemistry,and Shaan was exceptional in his role of course,you give him a justified role,he can prove that he's so much more than an undead village superhero like his previous movies,with Khuda Ke Liye and Waar,he proves he is the best,and not in any way,less than any great actor you see in Bollywood or Hollywood.He is slowly evolving to perfection with each movie. thumbs up to Ali Azmat and Meesha Shafi who played their parts extremely well and made a great debut.Shamoon Abbasi fit perfectly in his role as a villain,he is evil and a perfect opposite match for Shaan.
-Character Roles were a bit poorly developed and should have been given more thought.Dialogues were perfect,enjoyable and a wave of clapping pursued whenever Shaan came on-screen with his witty remarks.The Decision to shoot 90% of this movie in English can be justified,majority can understand the movie but i saw a guy sitting there who was being translated each and every scene in Urdu by his friend so he can understand what's happening,although Urdu Subtitles were available.
-The Music Score of the movie is something worth particular mention,extremely great job by Amir Munawar and the whole team,the score is what that makes the scenes feel interesting and enthusiastic.The songs were emotional and energetic.
On the whole,it was an enjoyable experience and we are proud to see Pakistanis coming forward and making great cinema.Don't miss it! It's a MUST-WATCH!
