    No way to watch Pakistani film due to languages problem and not available in Bangladesh easily :cry:. hope you will start aggressive foreign marketing specially in south asian market . i think both Hindi and Urdu song lyrics are very attractive to hear though i cannot understand most of the word .:hitwall:
    Bangla or at least English subtitle might solve the problem .:)

    British director Steven Moore’s Pakistani film “Tamanna” (An Overlook)​


    his would be one of the most interesting projects in the history of Pakistan film industry. The upcoming Pakistani film Tamanna is directed by British director Steven Moore and produced by Sarah Tareen, who also has the experience of working with Shoaib Mansoor for his blockbuster hit “Khuda Kay Liye”.

    The movie is Pakistan’s first feature film directed by any British director, as all the past efforts by any foreign director were on lower level. Tamanna has got a very experienced and heavy cast which includes internationally acclaimed Pakistani actors like Salman Shahid, Faryal Goher and Omair Rana.

    Omair Rana was not part of the film initially and the role which he will feature in was given to Hameed Sheikh, who is famous for his role of Sher Shah in Shoaib Mansoor’s KKL and Omar Boloch in Kandahar Break. But according to the producer Sarah Tareen, he has now been replaced by Omair Rana.

    “The story is essentially about class snobbery, adultery and ego. We have purposefully chosen realism and artistic integrity over sensationalism, because we want this film to be taken seriously internationally and have a long shelf life. Our general philosophy is to stay away from politics and religion and to concentrate on class and social issues. This film is not ‘masala’ but neither is it parallel cinema – it is midway, and is aimed at intelligent viewers from any background. The story is relevant to present Pakistani culture with its emerging middle class challenging the gentry”, told Sarah in an interview to Daily Times.

    Making an international standard film is of-course not an easy job at all, and every aspect either big or small, requires an extra ordinary care. Keeping the same fact in mind, the legend Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is chosen to give the music of the film.

    Explaining his experience in Pakistan, director Steven Moore in an interview with Daily Times said, he believed culture is narrative while the film is the most powerful cultural narrative and Pakistan needs a boost in its recognition of its cultural heritage and stories. He said, “After spending five years in Pakistan, living like an ordinary citizen, not in some foreign enclave or working with a single organisation with an agenda, I feel very connected with what’s happening here. I needed time to both mature as an artist and understand the country and the people of Pakistan. The important thing is that the current slide in the film industry is reversed, and the stories of a generation are not lost forever.”

    Sarah Tareen, via email told Galaxy Lollywood that “the film is actually a drama in genre and the work on the film is almost complete, however it will come out somewhere in the month of April this year, whereas the music of the film will be released before”. She further said, “It’s a Pakistani-British Co-Production and the veteran playwright, poet, writer and columnist Munnu Bhai, is Tamanna’s script supervisor”.

    Tamanna after 2007′s KKL will surely open an another brave and un-touched topic of the society of not only Pakistan but the whole Indo-Pak region. This film is not only important for the revival of Pakistan film industry but will also open doors for Pakistani people to show to the whole world that they are not what they are actually depicted by the international media and they have this positive side as well where film makers are now opening such social taboos through their artistic skills. This film can also help the Pakistan film industry to get an international recognition which they lost somewhere in late 80s and 90s.

    Well hopefully they will have subtitles.

    And I'm sure you will see more and more Pakistani films on the South Asian movie scene, we're slowly getting there!

    What about private productions? Majority of these movies coming out actually have good stories to tell. It doesn't matter about the budget. Cameras are so cheap in this digital age these days that almost anyone can make a movie. I can make a 2 hour long movie with a cannon 7d or a RED camera, edit it, color grade it myself. Just need a distributor to bring my movie to the theaters and advertise it. Filmmaking is an art you can't learn it in school. All you need is a story to tell. Look at the Nigerian film industry, their industry is run by vhs movies. Look at Iran's film industry, they have low budgets and are art films.

    Don't mean to be harsh on you but I don't know why so many Pakistanis are negative thinkers. Instead of criticizing it do something about it.

    Exactly.

    Iranian films are not high budget or "in your face" like hollywood movies but Iranian cinema is one of the best industries out there-because they are simple and tell an amazing story.

    People should support the Pakistani film industry, without support we'll never get anywhere!

    Pakistani films used to be very good back in the 50's, 60's, and 70's but zia ul haq ruined the film industry. But the film industry is slowly starting to pick up in Pakistani and it will take some time before they are on par with everyone else

    movies is a very professional job, some lallu panjus cant just take out cameras and start making films, there have been some independent films getting great success, but these films have meet the standards of the professional industry, others are just considered B rated movie films, one cant just shoot films on street, there high tech equipments and studios

    there are actually handing out degrees on film making, acting, music art etc etc

    i dont think these films will ever make it into high scenes

    what i mean is, we need professional industry for it
