User Reviews

 
Highlighting social issues is the main Objective

I never wrote a review before for any movie but after watching this, I have to write one.

May be I watched the best script written in Pakistan ever.

Everyone must be familiar with main concept of the movie through the trailer but this movie is not only about comedy and laughs but also about some serious social issues which has been presented brilliantly by the AIL team. Even you will see some political characters, including a telephonic speech by political leader. Everyone did superb Job. Mehwish Hayat played a brilliant roll in this movie. I guess in next few days it will be hard to grab tickets for this movie. A must must watch movie - 10/10 from my side.

P.S: Even my words cannot define the movie in a proper way
