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.
Hamza Ali Abbasi,
When his wife dies unexpectedly, Wahid, a poor train station master of a small, remote town in Pakistan's Balochistan province, must come to terms not only with her death and his own childhood personal demons, but also his complicity in the events that led up to it. He must choose between facilitating a web of corruption involving his own elder brother that might provide him a more comfortable life but which threatens to destroy his beloved railways and morals on the one hand, and saving his estranged son caught in a similar conflict for a better life in the big city on the other. Set against the backdrop of the deliberately engineered decline of the railways system in Pakistan, 'Moor' is a story about the meaning of loyalty - to one's land, one's family and one's principles.Written by

Thank you Jami for reviving Pakistani Cinema. Moor was an absolute stunner - beautiful shots and amazing storyline. Characterization was immense.
The dialogues are simple yet gripping. My most favourite dialogue from the film is when Ehsan screams and cries and says, "Moorgi ko bula dou, mujhey woh samjha dein gi (Please call my mother, she will make me understand)" - this dialogue perfectly sums up the relationship.
Wahid's character was so powerful that you forget the heartthrob Ehsan at times and want Wahid to speak up. Though have a very conventional ending but were driven to the conclusion in a smooth way. Must watch.
