One Of The Better Films From Pakistan If Not The Best
18 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Salam , Just watched Balu Mahi few days back i was so confused to watch it or not because Pakistani movies were going no where from past few months especially in 2016 and i also heard that first Pakistani movie of 2017 named "Thora Jee Le" was pathetic but still i gave Balu Mahi a chance and OMG i was shocked & literally blown away , from start to finish this one was fully entertaining movie which had drama , comedy , thrill , Romance etc etc . From opening scene where Balu ( Osman Khalid Butt ) is shown sitting in car is brilliant and the back ground score is amazing beautiful music by Sahir Ali Bagga , all songs are exceptional and best music from any Pakistani Movie along With Bin Roye. The story spans beautifully and most importantly the beautiful locations shown in the movie from Lahore to Hunza and all other places shown are beautifully captured by the camera man hats off also the cinematography is great loved the scenery . Coming to acting Osman Kahlid Butt looked so charming and totally in control of his character all expressions with which he acted shows his talent he has a long way to go , Ainee Jaffery was also looking cute and beautiful in some scenes she acted brilliantly rest of the cast did their part so well and supported the lead stars. Music from Sahir Ali Bagga is best from any Pakistani Movie till now the two best songs are Rang De Chunar and Tu Kia Jaane sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Sahir Ali Bagga respectively. Overall full Paisa Vasool Movie it's a must watch for all Pakistani's its a movie which will give a very strong push to Pakistani Cinema and Believe me it's a classy movie and comparable to any Bollywood flick level. Hatsoff to the director Haissam Hussain for making a very bubbly and entertaining movie , we want more good movies like this . So my Overall score for Ballu Mahi is 7.2/10 , Acting : 7.5/10 , Music : 10/10 , Direction :8/10 , Cinematography : 10/10 . A Job well done
