18 Pakistani Movies That People Actually Want To See

By Sarmad Amer | 30 Aug, 2016

Many optimistic people have been calling the current onslaught of Pakistani movies yet another ‘revival’ of cinema in the land of the pure. However, not many are as happy with movies that seem to follow a similar pattern. A small town hero, a heroine preferably ameer baap ki beti, a love story, villainous parent(s), song and dance, maybe even an Ayesha Omer or Mehwish Hayat item number thrown in.

Sadly, with the race to make money minting “family entertainers”, stories are being compromised, in Pakistani movies these days. So these people have some suggestions for the cinema industry in Pakistan to make movies on:

 

1. Like this fan of the legendary Edhi sahab

 

2. Or this cricket fan whose appetite isn’t satisfied with cricket on the grounds that he wants it in the cinema too.

 

3. This person wants there to be “honest” film-making

 

4. While this one wants to approach the (unfortunately) long forgotten Panama Leaks

 

5. This guy knows what movie will really fill cinemas

6. He doesn’t care what film is made, he just wants a job

 

7. And this one suggested a twist on the ordinary love story

 

8. More twist suggestions came from this guy

This time a twist on shaadi movies

 

9. This person doesn’t know that her hero is already doing a movie

11. This person doesn’t think housewives get enough melodrama on TV

 

12. This student wants a film about the ziyadati he has suffered

 

13. While this person is probably thinking of Gulliver’s Travels ka Pakistani version

14. Someone’s jealous of Momina Mustehsan but also has a movie idea
