DUBAI:  Lovers of Pakistani cinema in the UAE would be delighted to know that their wait for watching the latest released film “Maalik” is over now. The much-talked-about film is all set to be released in the UAE on Thursday. This was announced at a press conference by its director in Dubai on Tuesday morning.

The film, which challenges the feudal system of the state and talks about empowering its citizens and helping its people, got banned in Pakistan just after the release of 19 days. This was despite getting approval from the censor board.

Directed and written by aeronautical engineer-turned-filmmaker Ashir Azeem, the film has managed to strike a chord with cinemagoers in Pakistan, soon after its release.

Praising the film, Azeem said, “This is one of those films, which stays with you even after the show is over.”

Debutant director Azeem is no stranger to Pakistani television audiences. His television venture “Dhuwan,” which was released 22 years ago, had made him an overnight star and people still remember him for that.

Soon after the release of “Dhuwan,” Azeem disappeared from the screen for many years. When asked about that, he said, “He did not expect ‘Dhuwan’ to be such a huge hit, hence he could not relish the unprecedented fame.”

He further said he was working for the government of Pakistan in the capacity of civil servant, therefore, he opted to be doing what he was doing, but kept on writing in his spare time.

He added, “This film is made in Pakistan and not even a single frame was sent abroad for any technical support. You can say this is purely a Pakistani film, made in Pakistan. Despite having limitations in the Pakistani film industry, we could manage to bring out such a powerful film.”

Praising the film, co-star of the film Farhan Agha said, “You can compare this movie with any other world-class film. The film is a thriller and it entertains you till the end.”

The film, which has gone through ups and downs, has finally got its due. After a long battle, the film was finally released again, but without a cut.

Talking about that, the director said, “I am happy with the success of the film. It has reached the masses and I am not much bothered about its profit and losses. I did what I wanted to do.”

When asked what inspired him to make such a powerful movie, he said, “I have worked in three provinces of Pakistan, like Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan, so I have seen reality of lives from very close quarters, hence all my inspiration is from my daily life spent there. I did not need to travel for inspiration.” The cast members Farhan Agha, Ehteshamudin, Adnan Shah and actress Tatmain were also present at the press conference.
