A Day Before

KARACHI - THE WET AND DARK METROPOLIS

Home to a bustling 16 million, now stranded without power or basic life support. Electricity, water, sewerage, transport and food distribution are all but gone.

It’s a scene from a ghastly Oliver Stone movie that could have been shot in places like Mogadishu or Darfur but is in fact Karachi. City’s authorities were not available for comments.

An Interview With Mehreen Jabbar,Director of Film " Ram Chand Pakistani"

Most Pakistani films are synonymous with loud acting, garish sets and blood-n-gore. But Khuda Kay Liyeearlier and Ramchand Pakistani now signify the changing times, the changing outlook, the changing mindset.Ramchand Pakistani is a simple story, a true story in fact, of a kid and his father crossing the LOC and being held captive in an Indian prison. A theme like this ought to be handled with gloves and director Mehreen Jabbar does just that. A sensitively told story that succeeds in making you think of the plight of scores of people who've accidently crossed the border and are, perhaps, still languishing in various jails.
