This is one movie that we have waited for a really long time. It does sound like a really promising movie with some of our country’s leading actors and actresses playing crucial roles in “The Legend of Maula Jatt”. Having fought a long and hard legal battle, this movie is set to release soon and we could not be more excited.
Recently, the director of the movie, Bilal Lashari, has deemed the movie unsuitable for children. Promising a lot of graphic violence, blood and gore, it is highly unsuitable for children. In fact, it might not be a suitable watch for those with a faint heart. In his statement, the director said ““Parents might not find the film suitable for their kids because of the graphic nature of few scenes so I would strictly advise against bringing children to cinema. Such outright violence is not for the faint-hearted and little ones.”
This movie is to be the biggest action movie in the history of Pakistan and with so much blood and action promised, it is understandable why it is NOT suitable for children. It is also great to see that in our country, while there is no solid concept of PG13 or R rating in our country, the director feels the responsibility to inform and advise people to NOT bring their children to cinemas to watch The Legend of Maula Jatt.
Only last week, it was announced that the movie will hit cinemas this year. With characters like Fawad Khan playing Maula Jatt and Hamza Ali Abbasi as Noori Nath, this new take on the Punjabi classic “Maula Jatt” originally written by Nasir Adeeb is all we can think about.
“The film transcends cultural and linguistic divide,” said the director, Mr.Lashari. “The content will be very palatable to the new generation that in times to come will extend the immortality of the fictional characters, Maula And Noori.”
And while it might not be suitable for children, we bet all the adults will not be able to resist going to the cinemas to see this movie!
