Kara film festival

It’s almost here – the event that makes Karachi proud and is the perfect antidote to the odious IDEAS, the Kara film festival. This year will mark the sixth edition of the festival and it seems to have gained traction in the region. If anyone has any tips on which movies to look out for, post them here. The organisers are planning on screening the bulk of the movies in the day, so tips will help everyone with a day job.

    Warning: Omkara has explicit languages and scenes

    there is a possibility omkara will be censored?!

  8. Abdul Sami (unregistered) on November 28th, 2006 @ 3:51 pm

    I remember, Paap wasn’t censored and it was crticized in Newspaper

    is it not lame to censor for that festival while uncensored versions are already available in market?

  10. Abdul Sami (unregistered) on November 28th, 2006 @ 4:41 pm

    How the Director and Actors will feel when almost every scene will be encoded with “toon….toon….toon”? They will b availble for post Q&A session. Ajay , Saif and Vishal Bharadwaj

    btw can anyone share the whole kara experience how is it overall?

    The Kara film festival has been very helpful for the local film industry especially for the actors …it has opened doors of the bollywood…the thing i like about it is that every year it invites only the serious film makers/producers/actors who are also famous…so it is not just another pomp(pimp)& fair show….

    Omkara is indeed a great movie…with or without the kareena kapoor’s back

    Break a leg…!

    Pass kitne ke hain

  14. llama (unregistered) on November 29th, 2006 @ 11:09 am

    Passes were for about Rs.100/- last year if memory serves me right. You can also get day passes (which do not include prime time screenings), or passes for the entire 11-day festival.

    So everyone wants to watch OMKARA because of explicit languages,scenes and Kareena Kapoor’s back?

  16. Jamal Shamsi (unregistered) on December 1st, 2006 @ 11:57 pm

    Omkara – does anyone remember the movies Usual suspects & The Untouchables both from late 80s – It is masala mix of both., adding some spice of skin exposure and songs only.

    IT is not right choice to view that movie with family or the kids

    Kara rocks. I love watching short films.
