"The 22-minute short film then depicted the effects Islamisation had on two people in Pakistan — a journalist who was tortured at the famous Shahi Qila in Lahore for writing a pamphlet based on anti-military sentiments and a dance teacher (Nighat Chaudhry) who persisted with her lessons despite threats to her life. Haal brings to light the dark reality of the seeds of intolerance sown in Zia’s era, and reminds its audience that moderation is the ultimate goal for a free-thinking society."
Short film Haal shows the military’s might.
While the film was written by Khan and co-writer Mehreen Kasana, it was produced by Ali Mohsin Shaheed Gardezi with original music by Walter Miar.
Is it okay if I felt a little proud of myself? Glad to see Haal getting positive reviews for a much-needed change in Pakistan.
