Moosa Khan boasts of exotic locales, a taught script and some good music. Being Shaan's third directorial attempt (the other two were 'Guns and Roses Ik Junoon' and 'Mujhay Chand Chahihay') he succeeds in making this movie stand out above the usual Pakistani fair, as was the case with all his previous films. However, I would have liked the story to be a lot less on rhetoric and more on substance - it surely was targeted at the masses, hence the script lacks intelligence. Saima does well with the character she's offered, but her character really asked for someone much younger.The music by Jawad Ahmed is brilliant - from the very middle eastern 'Lagee Lagee' to the sweet 'Main to Piya ki thi', all the tracks enchant you. However, a better storyline and more sophisticated special effects would have made the film more engaging. Not bad though, watch it for the music!
