The revival of Pakistani cinema has been on the incline for a few years now. With record-breaking films like Janaan coming up and giving us a reason to hold our heads up high. Lollywood had been in a sad state of decline before Shoaib Mansoor got up and decided to do something about it. Woh din gaya aur aaj ka din aaya, ucchi se ucchi movie dekhne ko mil rahi hai. There are some movies, however, that have done an exceptional cinematographical job of making Pakistan look like the beauty that she is. Here are the films that have managed to capture the picturesque beauty of our beloved country, in recent times.
