The next time you ask on Quora why “Pakistani people enjoy Bollywood films more than films from their own movie industry” and it tells you “well for one thing, they’re just not as good” – please don’t believe it. Because Pakistani films are catching up with Bollywood, and super fast at that. Sometimes, these films are even better. Think Khuda ke Liye and Bol for starters.

It’s no secret that Pakistanis love all-things Bollywood and that the country is the third biggest market for Bollywood films. But this is quickly changing.

This change was witnessed on Eid ul Zuha, two weeks ago, when our neighbours flocked to cinema halls to watch, not a Bollywood movie, but three of their own releases – Actor in Law, Jaanan and Zindagi Kitnee Haseen Hay – and we are not even counting the other three Eid releases in Punjabi and Pushto.

Veteran actor Om Puri who has played an important part in Actor in Law has gone on record to say that Pakistani films are on par with Indian films, and some of them even meet “international standards”.

If you still live with weird stereotypes about Pakistanis and Pakistan in your head and are expecting to see women in hijabs being romanced by bearded men in shalwar kameezes – you need to watch the trailer of Actor in Law for a reality check. The leading lady Mehwish Hayat can pass off as any other Bollywood actress in a pair of shorts, hurling shoes and abuses: “Isko Facebook par zaroor dalna – yeh le kuttey!”
