LAHORE: Four films — three Pakistani and one Bollywood — will be released on Wednesday (today) to spice up the festivity of Eidul Azha for filmgoers.

Pakistani films include Waar, Super Girl and Sharabi, while the Bollywood flick is Boss.

According to entertainment circles, Waar is likely to be a super hit movie if its TV promos are anything.

Waar is a bilingual Pakistani action film featuring an unconventional cast using live bombs, real gunship helicopters and other modern warfare techniques. The 2:10 hours film directed by Bilal Lashari and written and produced by Hasan Waqas Rana was shot in Lahore, Islamabad and Sawat.

The Rs200 million feature film is being regarded the heaviest-budgeted film project in the history of film industry.

The Pakistan film industry has high hopes attached to this film. Film circles believe that such a heavy budget movie would be a feather in the cap of Pakistan film industry. The film is being released on Eid with some 30 to 35 prints.

The other two films — Super Girl and Sharabi — are low budgeted movies. Super Girl is an Urdu movie starring Nida Chauhdry and Babrik Shah. Sharabi, a Punjabi movie, directed by Pervaiz Rana, also has the same pair in the lead.

The only Indian film being released on Eid is Boss, an action masala film, directed by Anthony D’Souza. The film features Akshay Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty, Shiv Pandit, Aditi Rao Hydari and Ronit Roy.

Yes Dawn, as if we do not have enough violence in this country that you have to promote these senseless movies that are supposed to "spice up" your Eid. What ever happened to thought provoking and ground breaking journalism?

Waar - Excellent Outclass Superb Movie ...... Action was too much real .... as good as any hollywood movie and i can bet on my words ......... The start action sequence was totally mindblowing ...... and the final assault sequence was awesome .............. It was really good to see the crowd in cinema cheering up when the Pak Army Cobra helicopter comes to the rescue to ground forces ........ Believe me the movie was better than any action sequence made by Indians ...... I can bet than not a single action sequence was exaggerated ..................... 5 stars to the team and hope to see regular action stuff from Bilal Lashari in future ........ will like to see more Pak Army and Air Force in future ...........
