A well made movie
15 September 2016 | by nabeelsiddiqiSee all my reviews

Talk about the Pakistani Movies, Waar initiated the message that Pakistan can make the much better movies. By leading message forward Pakistan developed the several good movies and they achieved the healthy box office report. By seeing this result, it seems our entire Drama industry is moving towards to Movie industry, that's unfortunate. That is why you can feel drama touch in Pakistan Movie Industry. Only few movies are being made that we can say its purely a movie that deserve to watch at big screen and YES! Actor in Law is among of them.

Actor in law is moving towards a person named Shan Mirza that wanted to be a actor but some circumstances he couldn't be a actor but a lawyer. That is played very well by Fahad Mustafa. So Shan Mirza utilized his acting skills in court, in very amazing way that will make you enjoy the movie. Talk about other lead actors, I wasn't expecting good from Mehwish Hayat but she also did her job and played a lady that wants to fight with the basic issues facing by people of the country. Talk about Om Puri, I don't need to say anything about his as he had small but very important roll and he done it very well.

Overall it was a very good comedy movie with some emotional scene in the end, you can enjoy with the pop corn. So I suggest go and watch this one.

But this was not just the comedy movie, there were some serious messages in the movie that I request you all to consider it.
