Ramchand Pakistani premiers August 1

Ramchand Pakistani

Mehreen Jabbar’s much awaited ‘Ramchand Pakistani‘ will makes its debut simultaneously in Pakistani and Indian cinemas on August 1. This will be, so far, only the second time that a movie will be released in the two countries on the same date. The first one ever to attain this was Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal back in November last year.

The film portrays the story of a family torn apart as a father follows his son who had accidentally strayed across the border into India, and both get captured by the Indian authorities. Nandita Das from the acclaimed hits of the 1990s like Fire (1996) and Earth (1998 ) plays the Pakistani mother struggling for their freedom, and mourning their long absence. This story is said to be based on true events.

The film features many prominent Pakistani actors such as Rashid Farooqi, Noman Ijaz, Maria Wasti, Shahood Alvi, Tipu, Adarsh Ayaz, Saleem Mairaj, and of course the our little star, Syed Fazal Hussain who plays Ramchand.

Archiving Pakistan’s Cinema History – A helping hand of a Frenchman

Philippe Jalladeau, a French researcher of cinematography has been awe-struck after watching Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Khuda Kay Liye’ thrice.

The researcher, on a mission to promote and archive films from across the globe, has already proved to be a very useful element for Pakistan’s cinema revival. He has helped promote “Jago Hua Savera“, a 1958 classic that won Pakistan a prize at the Moscow Film Festival.

Not only does Jalladeau plan to produce copies of this epic movie but also aims at building a proper archive for the Pakistani cinema

Do you know Pakistan is one of the few countries that doesn’t have a proper archive? Bangladesh has one, even Afghanistan has an archive, so why not Pakistan!

He also intends to lecture Pakistani students on cinema and make a feature film by collaborating with them.

Shoaib Akhtar and controversies go hand in hand I swear. It’s like this man was born to be the centre of attention; for all the wrong reasons!

Pakistan’s daily, The Nation, posted a story a few days ago regarding airport customs officials finding empty syringes in his luggage while he was travelling to India to play in the Indian Premier League.

Shoaib’s personal doctor and trainer, Dr. Tauseef Razzak dismissed the claims as rubbish!

Talk about Shoaib telling the Customs officials that he needed the syringes to inject insulin as he is a diabetic patient is not true. He has asthma problems and uses an inhaler, for which he has got permission from the International Cricket Council (ICC) 

We don’t know if all this is true or just plain old ploy being sponsored by the disgruntled PCB when they got kicked in the face and had to allow Shoaib to play in the IPL. Or maybe it’s the newspaper merely ‘creating’ a sensational gossip because they didn’t have a ‘real’ story about the speedster to publish.

I say leave the guy alone. He’s doing well and entertaining the crowds out there. Give him breathing space and let him do what he does best.

Mehreen Jabbar’s Ramchand Pakistani

An enthusiastic applause followed soon after Mehreen Jabbar’s ‘Ramchand Pakistani’ ended in a in a packed downtown cinema in New York last night!

The movie had recently been nominated for the competition section of the Tribeca Film Festival 2008, New York.

The film portrays the story of a family torn apart as a father follows his son who had accidentally strayed across the border into India, and both get captured by the Indian authorities. Nandita Das from the acclaimed hits of the 1990s like Fire (1996) and Earth (1998) plays the Pakistani mother stuggling for their freedom, and mourning their long absence. This story is said to be based on true events.

The film features many prominent Pakistani actors such as Rashid Farooqi, Noman Ijaz, Maria Wasti, Shahood Alvi, Tipu, Adarsh Ayaz, Saleem Mairaj, and of course the our little star, Syed Fazal Hussain who plays Ramchand.

Ramchand Pakistani might not invoke the same level of thought-provocation and enthusiasm as last year’s ‘Khuda Ke Liye’ did but it is set to lay bare a lot about the fact that several innocent people are detained by either of the two countries and tagged as ‘spies’. Watch out for this one!

WeCite Review: Om Shanti Om

Farah Khan’s previous venture, Main Hoon Na was quite a disappointment to begin with. Honestly, I expected a lot more from the likes of her and all the teasers for Om Shanti Om that I had been seeing for months actually made me hopeful that this time around it would be a better deal. And what did I get: a typical bollywood masala flick with no trace of logic. Nevertheless, I liked the movie. Yes, you heard me. I did like it despite an all out completely illogical grapevine of twists and turns that take place in the second half of the movie. Let’s take you through the story and then I’ll come to why I liked the movie
