WAAR - Its not one of the finest rather its The Finest One...
18 October 2013 | by Salman MahfoozSee all my reviews

A story based on true events that happened in Pakistan... and how Pakistani Nation is facing the war on terror...

A True Inspiration for all Pakistanis... I was feeling more proud when I came out of the Cinema... Felt even better after seeing hundreds waiting outside for the next show... This is the appreciation for this extra- ordinary effort from The Great Shaan, Shamoon, Hamza, Ayesha and Meesha... And of-course Bilal Lashari - The Architect of New Pakistani Cinema...

Great Visuals Effects, Scenic Photography, Superb Dialogues, Good Sound Effects, Excellent Acting & Spectacular Sequences makes WAAR "A Must Watch"... Quite Comparable to any Hollywood Stuff... The Gunship Helicopters, ammunition, action, thrill... were just WAOOO.....!!! A complete Entertainment Package for almost everyone...
