NOW A DAYS THERE IS LOADS OF TALK AND TREND ABOUT THE CO-PRODUCTION OF MOVIES WITH BOLLY WOOD. I PERSONALLY SEE THIS TREND AS LOLLYWOOD’S DARK AGE RATHER THAN LIGHT FOR HOPE. DAY BY DAY WE ARE DEPENDING MORE ON THE INDIAN TALENT AND PROVING OURSELVES AS TOTAL FAILURE TO MAKE A DECENT MOVIE FOR OUR VIEWERS. I DIVIDE THIS EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS IN TO DIFFERENT PHASES AS FOLLOWS:

1)     FIRSTLY WE STATRED HIRING BOLLYWOOD’S SINGING TALENT IN THE FILMS LIKE ‘GHAR KAB AAO GAY’ AND MANY MORE. WE PROVED OURSELVES THAT IN ORDER TO HAVE NICE SONGS WE DON’T HAVE ANY OTHER OPTION THAN TO RELY ON ‘THEM’.
2)     THEN, WE MOVED FORWARD AND START GETTING FACILITIES LIKE EDITING, COLOR LAB ETC FROM INDIA.
3)     THEN IT GOES TO CHOREOGRAPHY
4)     THE NEXT STEP WAS TO SHOOT THE ENTIRE MOVIE IN INDIA BY USING THEIR STUDIO FACILITIES AND THEIR ACTORS AS WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TALENT TO HAVE BETTER ACTING STANDARDS E.G., ‘MAIN AIK DIN LAUT KER AOONGA’ .
5)     THINGS DIDN’T STOP THERE; RECENTLY WE HAVE ALSO OPTED TO GET OUR FILMS DIRECTED BY THEM AS WELL!!!!!!! SO WE DON’T HAVE GOOD DIRECTORS EITHER.


I WOULD LIKE TO RAISE THIS ISSUE IN THIS FORUM THAT WE ARE HERE TO PROMOTE OUR INDUSTRY. AS THE THINGS ARE GOING WILL WE BE ABLE TO CLAIM ANY MOVIE AS PAKISTANI WHEN NOT JUST THE BITS AND PIECES BUT THE MAIN PILLARS LIKE DIRECTION, ACTING ETC WILL BE DONE BY INDIA??????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ?
I CAN UNDERSTAND THE USE OF TECHNICAL FACILITIES IF WE ARE LACKING BUT WHAT IF WE START OUT SOURCING HUMAN RESOURCE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES???? THE ONLY ASSET WE HAVE IN OUR COUNTRY IS NOTHING BUT THE ‘MAN POWER’ BUT IF WE STILL GET BRAIN AND TALENT FROM OTHERS IT SHOWS WE ARE NOT CAPABLE ENOUGH OF MAKING GOOD PRODUCT. THAT’S WHAT I CALL DARK AGE FOR THE NATION.

WE CAN’T DIRECT MOVIE (e.g., GOD FATHER)
WE CAN’T SING SONGS      (YDAKH, GKAG,TPM ETC…..)
WE CAN’T ACT         &nb sp;         &nb sp;  (MADLKA, GF, ETC)

SO WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO????? BY ONLY INVESTING PAKISTANI RUPEES ….ITS NOT GOOD ENOUGH REASON TO CLAIM THE PRODUCT AS PAKISTANI IN A TRUE SENSE.

PAKISTANI VIEWER: (HOW HE THINKS????)

I BELIEVE THE PAKISTANI CINE GOER AS THE MOST PATRIOTIC AUDIENCE I HAVE EVER SEEN. REASON BEING HE HAS THE ACCESS TO BETTER PRODUCT IN THE SAME LANGUAGE BUT WHENEVER THE TIME COMES TO HAVE A ‘SLIGHTLY BETTER’ PRODUCT, IT GETS THERE TO MOTIVATE THE FILM MAKERS AND MAKE THE MOVIE BLOCK BUSTER.
FOR EXAMPLE WHEN ‘YDAKH’ OR ‘SALAKHAIN’ RELEASED THE AUDIENCE HAD THE CHOICE OF BETTER INDIAN PRODUCTS IN THE MARKET IN TERMS OF NEW STORIES, UNIQUE DIRECTION WHICH HAD NO COMPARISON WITH PAKISTANI FILMS.

BUT EVEN THEN OUR PATRIOTIC CINE GOERS OPTED TO MOTIVATE THE PAKISTANI FIM MAKERS AND BUCKED THEM UP BY IGNORING LOOP HOLES IN THE MOVIE. BUT HERE WE MUST DECIDE ON WHICH FACTOR THERE PATRIOTISM IS BASED???????????
YES U GOT IT RIGHT, ITS NOTHING BUT THE COMPARISON WITH BOLLYWOOD. WE ALWAYS TRY TO BECOME A HEAD WITH THEM WHICH IS A SIGN OF GOOD NATIONAL SPIRIT. WE CHEER UP WHEN WE SAY OR HEAR THAT PAKISTANI MOVIE ‘XYZ’ WAS LIKE INDIAN MOVIES OR ONE COULDN’T SEE THE DIFFERNCE BETWEEN INDIAN MOVIE AND PAKISTANI MOVIE. IT IS THE TIME WHEN WE FEEL OUR SELVES PRIDE TO MEET NOT THE HIGHEST BUT THE HIGHER STANDARDS IN CINEMA INDUSTRY.
WE MUST PAY SOME THOUGHTS ……….IF THIS CINEGOER COMES TO KNOW THAT THE FILM IS OF BOLLYWOOD STANDARD BECAUSE EVERY THING WAS TAKEN FROM THEM AND THE ONLY REASON TO SEE IT AS PAKISTANI PRODUCT IS THE NAME OF PRODUCER ‘HAJI, CHOUDRY OR MALIK’ ETC.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT????
WE WILL START LOOSING OUR TARGET SEGMENT OF THE CUSTOMERS AND CUSTOMER WILL PREFER THE BETTER PRODUCT DESPITE LOOKING FOR ITS ORIGIN AS THERE WOULD NOT BE ANY MORE PAKISTANI ORIGIN PRODUCT IN THE MARKET!!!!!!!!!!! WE MUST START DISCOURAGING THIS TREND TO SAVE OUR IDENTITY AND BELOVED LOLLYWOOD!
