Storyline

Zainub Khan has been found guilty by Pakistan's Courts and is to be hanged.

The 8th child turned out to be a hermaphrodite and Hashmutullah wanted it dead but Suraiya insisted that she will not let anyone know so as not to shame her husband. They named the child Saifullah, and hired a tutor to teach him at home. After a failed marriage, Zainub returns home, notices that the tutor was molesting her brother and asks him to leave. With dwindling income from his father, unable to attend school, his mother giving birth to still-born babies, his siblings uneducated, Saifullah is then himself compelled to seek employment.

Did the movie live up to the expectations/hype? YES!
4 July 2011 | by waeed_khanSee all my reviews

When I was walking into the theatre, I didn't think the movie was going to be very memorable, but I was wrong. The movie hits hard and is a roller coaster ride of emotions. Humour was present to break the seriousness of the film and make the movie even more enjoyable. The acting was pretty convincing with the exception of Atif Aslam. The film direction was superb and so was the story. I heard many say that the movie consisted of too many different plot lines and controversies, but I believe Shoaib Mansoor did a great job tying all loose ends and making the plot solid. It was a HUGE step forward from "Khuda key liye". Shoman does indeed learn fast. The camera work and the sound was astonishingly better than it's predecessor. It was also pretty much entirely based on the elements of realism. It surfaced plenty of tragic, but existing, traits of the lower class society in Pakistan. The movie was thoroughly engulfing. Shoman did, indeed, work his magic yet again! An amazing movie which depicts all that is wrong with the Pakistani society! It's a must watch for everyone!
