Dukhtar - Review


I had seen a lot of hype for the movie in Pakistan when I saw the director show up on almost every talk show around Eid. What I liked about it was that it moved away from the all too familiar Bollywood BS formula (3 hour entertainment package with songs dance blah blah.. god I hate Bollywood) to shorter narrative style. It was well shot and the director did a good job of using the landscape of the locations. It could have done a better job at character development and perhaps going deeper into some of the issues that it touches upon. Overall, I am happy to see another addition to Pakistani Cinema going into a right direction, away from the Bollywood formulaic crap.
