Today i saw LARKI PUNJABAN in a theatre in Lahore , well i have only one word to explain the movie and that is ~~DUBBA~~ .

Little outline of the movie is that two pre-partition female friends one Sikh one Muslim rejoins , Shamil is muslim's son , Saima is relative of Sikhni from india , both (BOY AND GAL) meet when sikhs come to NANKANA SAHAB and stay at Shamil's house , both falls in love , Baber who is shown Saima's fiance comes to know about their affair and then the same conventional story begins .

LAPSES , Weak Points :

Basic lapse that the movie has is the imbalance in the combination of cast . Note my words carefully i am not saying that Saima was not good , no she was ~~ALMOST Fit~~ in the role that was assigned to her , she was looking a perfect Punjaban .I admit that her heavy physique specially her figure was something that was looking over . Dark rings under her eyes were also telling the story of Saima's age . Anyways Now if the director had made his mind to pick Saima for this role he should have made some other choice with the Hero . Shamil Khan was looking her son in the whole movie . I suggest that Sana was a more convincing choice for this role with Shamil , or Shan with Saima would have done the trick .

Apart from the cast , movie was experiencing some huge directorial lapses. Director dos'nt seem to have any control over the story . Almost half of the movie goes without having the real story started , sikh visitors from india are shown to be visiting and enjoying Lahore and other places for almost half movie which was very irritating . Nothing new happened in the movie so while looking at a scene one can easily predict whats gona happen in the next scene , 95% of my guesses were right about the movie . Another interesting feature of the movie is the excessive use of dream works in the movie , 2-3 songs were in dreams , in the last song it becomes difficult to determine that either hero and heroine have met in real or it is still a dream . Sikhs were shown very very stupid and aggressive specially in a scene where father cuts the hand of his son without any investigation or warning . Propaganda against the hindus in the end was useless and foolish , there was'nt any need for that .

Summing up the essay i would say that movie has all the reasons that a movie needs to be flopped. Very, very and very weak direction , imbalance in combination of HERO/HEROINE , some weak individual acting performances including Shamil , wrong choice of dresses specially Saima whose clothes were very tight and Shamil who was wearing a P.cap in songs , some vulgar chitchats in the start of the movie by some side actors , proves to be the weak points of Larki Pujaban .

have u seen the movie , if yes ! tell me where i am wrong ! I can bet any guy who have seen the movie will agree with me . I have used the words very carefully and have suggested the soloution where it was possible , dont know where we have clash of observation .

YDAKH :
Yaar if i dont see the movies i dosnt mean i dont know what i shown in our movies or what quality of content these movies are having ? As far as ~dubba~ is concerned , i used that term just to explain the extract that i got from the movie , every one knows a film which is not impressive is called DUBBA , so if i have used this term , then what ?

YDAKH is far more impressive movie than LP .

YDAKH was technically very correct , the reason is that some indians assisted sheikh sahab in direction of ydakh , but in LP there are blunders big big blunders .

YDAKH :
Meray betay , i told u that neither i watch Paki movies regularly nor indian , i didnt say that i havnt ever watched any single paki movie . As far as influence from indi movies is concerned , ok dont compare the acting or direction of paki movies with indi movies , compare the class of your tv dramas with your own films , doodh ka doodh aur pani ka pani , i never said that pakis dont know how to make movies , if you see Urdu movies of late 70s to mid 80s , when nadeem , babra , shabnam and other paki actors were in , movies used to be shoot in nepal srilanka ,turkey those movies were best .
Coming to the point Hindu /Muslim , I didnt mean that there shouldnt be any critisism on hindus or other anti-islam elements , yes they should be highlighted , but with a proper way , take an example of LOC whole movie is against Us , pakistanis , whole movie was designed for that very purpose , but here the hindu part was not well planned , it was looking like a cherry on the cake not having any link with the story , farz he poora kia hua tha , i tell u one very interesting fact , at the time of Partition these were sikhs who did 75% of the massacre against migrating muslims , now we call them our brothers , but we have to as they are also anti hindus , anyway such movies with a lil big budget good quality cameras , nice music are far more better than those of Gundasa movies .

Dear whkhan :

U said that u dont agree with most of my points , ok these are my points tell me where i am wrong :

1: Combination of Shamil & Saima . Was that perfect ?

2: Saima's Fitness , age reflection . Is it fine ?

3: Weak Direction > Story Control > Almost half movie was past without having REAL story being begun . Remember Intermission , it came when Baber saw both of them in garden . People in the theatre were dieing to see that scene from last half hour , wernt u ?

4: Weak Direction > Dream Works > Song in which Saima came in Yellow Roofless sports car , not only me but whole crowd was confused either it is another dream or really saima has came to shamil .

5: Weak Direction >Propaganda Against Hindus : I think here we have some misunderstanding , i didnt said/meant that we should not critisize hindus , they should be but with some planning . That part of the story must have a link with some previously occured incidents in the story , friend of baber who just had an introduction and driving scene suddenly became villen , and a big villen , didnt u noticed that .

6: Vulgar ChitChat : Didnt u notice Irfan Khosat and company saying some vulgar sentences , Aisay kaam kiyoon kerti hai jin ki wajah say baar baar nahana perta hai , Mera Lahore choota rah gaya hai , didnt u hear those lines , ya samajh he nahin aa rahi thi , ohhhhh sh*tt i was watching the movie with my Female CFs , yaar sach main i was feeling shame when that part of the movie was on . My whole academy class was with me and we all were down .

In The End I would like to say that give proper arguments to clear your points , be realistic , apni baat ko properly explain karo , your comment that its the best movie in Pak history gives an idea that u r trying to start a useless behaas baray behaas situation , fazool behaas ka faida na aap ka ho ga ne mera , na Lollywood ka aur na JB ka .platonic37991.162037037

Coming to the Positive Points :

After a succesfull criticizing effort now lemme come to the positive aspects of the movie :

1: Sceneries of Malaysia were breath taking , nicely seleted and shooted .

2: Shamil khan has got some cool looks , i heard some gals were talking of him .

3: Set of the Shamil's house was good .

4: Songs were well placed in the movie . They were having proper links with story , here credit goes to the director .

5: Language that Sikhs were speaking was ditto to the actual sikhs , cast was looking to be doing some hard work with the language , saima used to call Shamil , oye shamla , that was really cool .

6 : Acting performance of Saima and Baber was good , Shamil need some hard work but with the passage of time he will learn the things .

Plantonic! thanks for explanation!
yaar platonic! u should see movie alone or with friends...I see movie only alone..yeh tu movies may hota hai.

I also dont like cheap sentence,YDAKH is a most clean movie other than paki movie and indian movie.
That' why I huge like..even every day I listened song.

Ok,I knew this movie could not impressed well,so I ignored movie from starting.
