| Cult Classic Pakistani Film
No one knows why some films become cult classics but obviously there is something that an ordinary person cannot understand but it rings a chord with everyone. There are many films in the hollywood, bollywood and other film industries. For example, Indian film Sholay, no one expected it to be such a big hit but it became of the cult classics. Maula Jatt like many other Pakistani films of that era looks technically weak but it still became a MEGA hit and slowly achieved a CULT CLASSIC status. People to this day watch this movie, repeat its dialogues and copy its characters. It was about honor, friendship and rivalry at the same time. It was a unique story with exceptional dialogues and breathtaking sequences. This was the start of movies showing gore in Pakistani cinema. Acting was amazing, characters were strong. If you haven't seen this movie, you must watch it once. You will enjoy it if you are a Pakistani. Basically it's a Punjabi movie so if you don't understand Punjabi, it may not make much sense to you. I would say it's a must watch for every Pakistani at least, for the younger generation that may not have seen it yet. For all Fawad Khan lovers, it will be a treat to watch. You can then compare this movie with the upcoming movie by the same name (okay, somewhat similar name) that has likes of Fawad Khan, Hamza Abbasi, Mahira Khan and Humaima Malik.
