In 2016, Pakistani film industry has amused its viewers with some remarkable blockbuster movies. Maalik, Janaan, Mahe Mir, Ho Mann Jahan were one of those which made great business across Pakistani cinemas. It’s good to see that young blood has rejuvenated the Pakistani Cinema and with the entrance of these young producers and directors, the former and legendary stars of Pakistani cinema have come back with some really good work.
The last two years have seen the influx of Pakistani movies and according to the critics, 2017 would witness the same hoax! Maula Jatt 2, Verna and Balu Mahi are lined up to release this year.”Geo Sar Utha Kay” is also one of them.
This action movie is being directed by Nadeem Cheema and is written by Nasir Mehmood. While Babar Ali, Shehryar Cheema, Umer Cheema, Nasir Khan and others can be seen in the cast. The trailer of the movie was released 9months ago and according to Nadeem Cheema, the release date will be announced soon.
The film is based on the real story of a gang in Rajanpur which was involved in criminal activities including murders and kidnappings. The ‘Chottu Gang’ led by Ghulam Rasool would threaten the villagers and ask them to do whatever he wanted. The village was then cleared by the Pakistan Army through the operation, Zarb e Aahan.
In the movie, Shafqat Cheema is playing the role of “chottu”. An item song has added some spice to the movie. The film is shot in selected locations of Lahore, Rajanpur, and Bahawalpur to make it closer to the reality.
However, most of the viewers are not happy with the movie at all. They are considering it as another copy of some Bollywood movie and just displayed the factor of “patriotism” in the movie through “uniforms”
In the last few years, Pakistan Army has been actively participating in a number of counter attacks to combat the terrorism issue in Pakistan. Those brave soldiers are leading different operations with the help of police and rangers in different areas of Punjab and Sindh in which they are achieving remarkable success.
Due to security issues, media houses are not allowed to report the incidents fully and promptly. So, with the help of these movies, a local Pakistani can get complete details of the operation which ultimately create a bond between the Armed Forces of Pakistan and the locals.
We just hope that Pakistani film industry would produce quality work instead of making copies of such serious issues.
