Panama Papers have been making the rounds for as long as my nephew was born…and he can walk now. And today was the day that we finally got a verdict for the initial round of investigation. And an extremely underwhelming one at that.

And that got us thinking ‘THEY MADE US WAIT FOR THIS?!’
And then we, at the office, sat down and spoke about everything else that had a better ending than this beautiful verdict. So here it is:
Of course, there were no vampires, no werewolves, nobody sucking anyone’s bloo- oh wait…
2. Mann Mayal
While there was crying of a different sort, there was no reconciliation and no happy endings here (well for some people, at least).
You know what was the only drawback of this film? If there was a Pakistani in place of Rose, there would at least be triple savaari on that door…
4. How I Met Your Mother
Ek tau wahiyaati, doosra, sub khush thhe end per. Ubhi sub khush nahi hain…
5. Kal Ho Naa Ho
Har larki ka sapna hota hai ke usko patti ke roop mein ek uccha dost mile, mujhe dost ke roop mein ek uccha patti mil gaya…
6. Balu Mahi
Traveling across Pakistan for the one you love the most. Of course it’s a better story and ending than the Panama verdict…not.
Babu ji ne kaha hukoomat chhor do, hukoomat ne kaha corruption chhor do, corruption ne kaha zidd chhor do…ubh Imran kehta hai kursi chhor do…
8. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
The story of a misunderstood kid who’s struggling with proving himself to everyone around…remind you of a certain pathan?
9. The Fault In Our Stars
The fault in our shalwaars
The fault in our naswaars
The fault in our taars
The fault in our stars
’twas the day that changed everything, but it still wasn’t as underwhelming as the Panama verdict.
At least it was consequential.
With all the deaths, misery and general gloom and doom that was 2016, even that bloody year had a better ending than the miserably underwhelming saga that was the Panama Papers verdict.
We hope next time they make us wait for something for this long, it better be at least slightly more entertaining…
What do you think had a better ending than the Panama verdict? ⇓⇓
