Pakistan movie industry needs revival, talented new directors, actors and most importantly plot for movies. Pakistanis are naturally movie fans, and would appreciate any attempt that can produce quality movies. Pakistan movie industry has an enormous investment and profit potential, someone just need to explore it.

Whats the point. You can't watch these films. There are other Pakistani films which won critical acclaim in NY and other places but not available at any DVD stores in Pakistan nor are they available in theaters in Pakistan.

At least one should be happy that Siyaah has made it to the big screen. The attitude of Pakistani cinema owners towards their own films is disgusting. They only want to show Bollywood films. That's why its impossible that films like Lamha or Josh will ever make it to the big screen. Well its our own fault by allowing Bollywood films to be released in Pakistan. We have virtually killed our own film industry ourselves but then who cares?
