Pakistan's Film Industry



PAK GIRL AS MUMTAZ IN HER DEBUT 'TAJ MAHAL'

Very soon the viewers will find a new face though a Pakistani in Akbar Khan's historic movie 'Taj Mahal'. Akbar Khan has discovered this girl to play emperor Shahjehan's ladylove Mumtaz for whom the emperor built one of the Seven Wonders of the World called 'Taj Mahal'. This girl is Sonya. She is half French and half Pakistani. Akbar Khan made a special endeavor to sign this girl who is granddaughter of yesteryears' actress and millions' heartthrob Noorjehan of the pre-partition of India.


Sonya claims to be well versed with Bollywood though she doesn't like some of its directors allegedly involved in casting couch. This has distanced her from entering the Indian movie industry in a big way. She recalls that producer Akbar approached her for 'Taj Mahal' when she was studying in England. S

he sought six months' time to complete her studies even though she had cleared the first audition test. Akbar Khan was too eager and therefore waited for her.She has been watching Hindi movies and admires them and so also the artists. However, she wonders why Indian girls who are very pretty and yet dress themselves in western clothes. She harbors regret that Bollywood has too much of sex in movies

However, she dared play Mumtaz as it's a historical character. She has got some offers for Hindi movies though, but has declined them so far. When asked if it meant that she would act in very few Indian movies, she quipped, "No, it's not so. However, I cannot do bold scenes for which there is a big demand in Bollywood. So, I shall sign movies only after a careful study. I have heard about casting couch. I have also heard about something not very pleasant about the directors. Thus, I was worried initially. " However, she is very much satisfied now. "I find that my arrival in India has been a blessing for me."

Lollywood needs to pull up out of its dive or we are screwed. Pakistan needs to cut the crap and put a ban on actors playing in Bollywood to help stabalize our own movie industry.

She is hot though!

Beats Meera!

Kyun tum se itna pyar hai premieres today

Kyun tum se itna pyar hai premieres today
by M. ZAHID RAJPUT

Pakistan film industry is going through a crisis and fighting for survival. Director Ajab Gul's new film Kyun tum se itna pyar hai, which premieres on Friday (today) is expected to improve the situation.
A preview of Kyun tum se itna pyar hai was held on Thursday in Karachi for the media. The cast of the film including Nadeem Baig, Talat Hussain, Veena Malik, Tahira Wasti, Arbab Khan, Nighat Chaudhry and Babrik Shah was also present.
Addressing on the occasion, legendary artist Nadeem Baig said, "This film is a ray of hope for the Pakistan film industry as it needs good films." He emphasised that good films could be made with the old equipment as in past, they had also worked and succeeded to give good films with the same machinery. The only need was of hard work, thoughts, vision and proper strategy. He appreciated the work of Ajab Gul and wished him success for this film. He also requested the people watch this film in cinemas and make it successful.
Talat Hussain, one of the pioneers of television industry, also spoke on the occasion and revealed that he was much inspired by the script of this film. "I hope that this film would revive the Pakistan film industry, if it exists," he said. He also praised the work of Ajab Gul and said that he was very careful about everything.
"Ajab was concerned about every artist and did not even give the full script to any artist including myself," he said.
Later Ajab Gul on the occasion said that he wanted to promote Pakistani films at international level. He forbade all the artists to mention about the story of the film, as he did not want to disclose the script before its release.
He was of the view that Pakistani film industry was on the edge to collapse and there was a great need to support it.
He said that people should see the film and give their views, as they were very significant.
He informed that all songs of the film had been recorded in India on DTS and sung by some of the most popular singers of Bollywood such as Shreya Ghoshal, Udit Narayan, Maya Ramdeen and Sadhna Sargam.

As long as Pakistanis keep competeing with Indian cinema, we will always lose. We have a different culture, we need to promote a different theme in our movies instead of trying to be like Indian cinema.

My thinking exactly, we have amazing country, beautiful people, tasty food, attractive culture and traditions and a very rich history and we need to promote this in our way to show the outside world the true face of Pakistan.

The problem is, we are also really big copycats. Instead of realising the worth of all that we already have, we love copying stuff that doesnt suit us, then we totally screw it up and it starts looking too wannabe. Pakistani cimena these days is just a wannabe for Indian cinema. Actually I really hope it dies down. To be reborn again as true Pakistani cinema.
Seriously! I remember this episode of George Ka Pakistan where this guy was ashamed of taking George to a Pakistani movie and when he finally did, george couldnt understand why the people in the movie were behaving like fanatics and doing stuff that you dont find in Pakistani mainstram culture! Indian cinema also reflects their mainstream culture which has dance clubs and stupidity and blah blah.. we dont have all that, so why show an unreal picture in the movies?

Not only different but better. Now is the time to concentrate more towards making good movies and I know we can do this...I mean look at our music videos directors, what good work they are doing and how talented they are, but they can't make a big budget movie due to lack of resources and facilities. Government needs to support them.

Starting small isnt bad either! who says that you just need a super high budget movie to break charts? I am not exactly asking for a Blair Witch Project here, but still! low budget movies can also be made really nicely. You dont need all the razzmatazz. Start low, and develop on the profit u make!

Look at our Music industry! why doesnt lollywood use Junoons songs? or EP's songs for action movies?

why dont they call in some of the directors who make music videos like Xulfi?

WHY? WHY?

Shoaib Mansoor & Amena Khan & her partner can make better videos than even americans here. We are very impressed with their work. I am sure they can make good movies. Gama Maja & mullah culture is on its way out and things are only gonna get better.
