Another masterpiece
15 April 2018 | by adnanadil-08050See all my reviews

This movie is a true depiction of Pakistani upper class. I am glad Pakistani filmmakers have finally got rid of Indian culture which had harmed quite a bit to the industry. We must understand Pakistani culture and values are different from Bollywood. Pakistan is famous for poets, intellectuals, artists. Sufis and critical thinkers. The movie Cake has it all. Whenever Pakistani filmmakers tried to follow Bollywood's footsteps by showing vulgar item numbers, stupid songs and dances , and foolishness of family politics, thay failed. I am glad Pakistani industry is back with a bang. This is a must watch movie. Pakistanis are different from India and their culture, and I strongly believe that Pakistani cinema is way better than current Bollywood. Hats off to the team of Cake for producing such a masterpiece.
