Balochistan has always been a controversial topic in the 9 pm news both politically and socially. Except those who have their roots binding there, others know very little of what it’s like, its people, its everyday issues and its story in depth.
However, Moor, a recently launched movie launched by AzadFilms & Mandviwala Entertainment; has helped shed light on apparently minor yet one of the powerful issues faced by the people of Balochistan, along with capturing the mesmerizing and breath taking landscapes of the place.
The name Moor means “Mother” and this emotional story showcases the battles between patriots and apatriots (non patriots), fight against corruption and good succeeding over evil. It premiered in Karachi on August 10th and launched nationwide on the 14th of August.
Moor claims to be a fresh breath for our booming film industry and depicts a charming view of Balochistan, instilling the desire to plan a visit soon. Jami, the director, encouraged audience across Pakistan to watch the movie by saying “Moor will surely boost the spirit of patriotism this Independence day; cinema-goers of all ages will feel a connection to the storyline. The plot of the movie speaks of corruption in a manner to provoke the masses to take individual actions to combat the social evils present in our society.”
Unlike the usual commercial movies, Moor boasts its position as a meaningful cinematic experience for the audience. The idea behind choosing such a theme is to enable the audience to ponder over grave issues hanging over our heads and unite us by our thoughts and spirit, loving this country like our very own mother.
The phenomenal cinematography of Moor will captivate the audience and the deep social message of ‘what you reap is what you sow’ embedded in the intricate storyline will leave the audience thinking over the individualistic measures which can be taken by them. The cast of the movie includes seasoned actors of the Pakistani performing arts fraternity such as Hameed Sheikh, Samiya Mumtaz, Shaz Khan, Sonya Hussyn, Abdul Qadir, Ayaz Samoo and Eshita Mehboob.
Another feature that make this movie a must watch is its gripping music by Strings, Meesha Shafi, Javed Bashir, Rahim Shah and many others. The beats are catchy, lyrics are soulful, after all they are by none other than Mr. Anwar Maqsood. My favourite picks from the list have got to be Eva – Meesha Shafi & Ku Ku by Strings!
