Kaanch

kaanch_poster_a.jpgA good year back Ramla did a review on The Early Days: a Coming-of-Age Movie it was a movie produced by a two brothers Khurram and Adeel Suhrwardy from Karachi known more commonly as the Suhrwardy Brothers.

The two brothers return yet again with another feature film, but this time its about a guy from Karachi who gets an opportunity to go to England, lives there for six years but then returns back to Karachi, his homeland and faces the everyday problems of this city. As far as the movie production goes, its bound to be top notch and even a glance at the short movie trailer available on YouTube shows the brilliant effort put in by the duo to come up with this great movie

The story about this Karachi boy in England is a very common occurrence for us here in Karachi and a story which we can easily relate to. What sparked my interest beyond the Karachi angle of the movie was also the fact that this is not just another branded movie hoping to make millions from its release but instead it happens to be the First Pakistani Movie to be officially released online for download while it is being aired on Geo TV this Sunday. I think this effort must be genuinely appreciated. Watch the movie on Geo TV or download it later at http://www.kaanch.com

    I hope KESC does not decide to prove it’s presence at the time ..

    I heard from some reliable sources that KESC won’t be loadshedding on Sundays. Lets hope KESC goes on their word.

    hmmm, that last sentence didn’t make any sense

    Fatima & Danish, don’t know which movie were you watching but the one I saw was HORRENDOUS

    OH GOSH!!! – I did sit through the movie and watched it on GEO last night – simply said it was awful. Through out I kept wondering ‘I hope it gets better’ … and it never even came close to being decent.

    Honest advise to anyone contemplating to spend 3.99 for the movie, DON’T the $3.99 (or ~ Rs 300) would be better spent on lunch or dinner for yourself as a treat or even better served if handed over to a poor person on the street.

    They must also realize that the movie world is far too competitive and this was a poor showing to a very critical audience, better luck next time, but then don’t hype the movie before its release. Keep it a low-key affair to preserve your ‘izzat’ if it comes out to be better then Hallelujah
