People don’t like to go the cinema and watch Pakistani movies because they are fed up with the same sort of movies. Usually Punjabi films are being made nowadays and their stories revolve around “Gujjar” and “Badmash”. Bol and Khuda K liye were two movies which were appreciated by audience worldwide. Nowadays some producers and directors are trying to make films on different subject, in order to revive the film industry which is at its last breath.
Media is the forth important pillar of our society. It is enhancing the exposure of audience to latest Indian movies. In our cinemas people come to see Indian and Hollywood movies. So they expect high quality from our film. They demand something unique and fresh. They don’t like to see typical dances in films.
