    Cinema: But there is still fun!

    But there was still fun as usual, guys shouting like crazy passing comments on the sexy dances by the heroine. But the thing that I like most in these films is the dialogues by the villains that I take as comedy though dialogues are extremely harsh.

    “Hey Rogue, your dad has been murdered in a bloody encounter”

    Rogue who is behind the bars started laughing out loud.

    “Hahahaha, I am so happy that after decades someone has given birth to my enemy, I will climb the walls of the jail tonight after smashing the head of Jailor and will seed the plant of revenge that will grow only with human blood…hahahahah!”

    In another situation, hero is on the door of villain challenging him to fight.

    Villain - “hey you rat, how dare you think of fighting with a lion that eats only human flesh, hahahahahaha, you must be tempted by Billo (hero’s girlfriend) to fight with me, hahahaha, it’s ok; a sexy girl can caress the thighs of a rat and persuade tiny animal to attack the face of a lion like me…..hahahaha, I will kidnap your girlfriend and will make her dance in front of us…. you little boy go home and sip your feeder…..hahahaha”

    Another funny item is the lustful face impressions of villains while they are watching dance of heroine who has been kidnapped and forced to dance.

    Its all funny …right?

    So for the sake of experience, watch the movie at least once in a cinema and like me take it as a comedy.

    I had once gifted a DVD to my foreigner friend and can you believe he very well understood the story despite the fact that it was not dubbed in English.

    Cinema: On the grave of Pakistan film industry

    Pakistan film industry in Lahore used to be one of the top in South Asia. Lahore was city of cinemas. During good old days, families used to watch movie at least once a week, now no one can think of going to cinemas with family, just a past time for youngsters now. Film producers and directors have been complaining of theaters and technological advancements as the cause of industry failure. This is in fact a lame excuse; truth is that film industry has been hijacked by non-professionals after those legendary celebrities and film directors passed away.

    Now anybody having few million rupees in his pocket can have a film produced in a few weeks’ time. Same formula stories; a boy’s father is an honest police officer or a judge, rogues try to bribe, failing to achieve desired results, murder officer or judge along with his wife. Innocent boy tries to seek justice, failing which he picks up machine gun and takes revenge. In between 150 minutes movie, he also fells in love with a beautiful girl who performs about six sexy dances (wearing full clothes…hehehe) to lure the boy.

    Last December I was so attracted with the names of the films released on Eid Ul Azha festival that I decided to watch a movie in the cinema after several years. The names of the films that tempted me “Zidi Budmash” (Rogue that does not listen to anybody), “Gunda Punjab da” (# 1 rogue from the province of Punjab), “Payasa Badan” (Thirsty body), “Gundi run” (rogue wife), Uchhoo 302 (rogue 302 - 302 is a clause under criminal act applied on a murder case, so rogue is happy that his nick name is Uchhoo 302 because he is accused of several murders) “Wahshi Gunda” ……etc etc!. Totally unrealistic stories and films.

    I watched the film in the Pakistan’s hottest cinema destination on Abbott Road Lahore. Can you image it was one of the prime cinemas but worst seats, dark screen and poor sound system.

    Cinema Poster

    Abott Rd & Mcleod Rd( notably at their junction at Lakshami Chowk) Have numbers of Cinemas showing English & Urdu-language films.
    Gulistan, Abott Rd, Palaza, Fatima jinnah Rd, And Regal, The Mall, are the the best bit for fairly recent English-language films....
