Screening Laaga Chunri May Daag

Sozo World is screening Laaga Chunri Mai Daag on Saturday, November 10, 2007, from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.

And that’s not it.

Other films are scheduled too … so hurry lest the tickets are all sold.

‘The Notebook’ on 17th of November ’07.
‘Om Shanti Om’ on 24th November ’07.

In my opinion, Laaga Chunri Mai Daag is an over-rated movie :|

    Is it allowed to screen indian movies in Pakistan?

    Must be that’s why they are screening it. Or may be Sozo world and the administrators had taken special permissions … !!

    10th November will tell :-)

    Why not just gather money in bags and give it to the Indians? After all this is where the money would be going…

    What you do/watch in your own homes is different, but there is a reason why Indian movies were not meant to be shown in Pakistani cinema’s.

    Too much cultural contamination I guess … of what ever remains of the Pakistanic cultural identity now… with Halloween and Valentine’s parties common place.

    A good news. We can live so long under the cover of hypocrisy. If we watch pirated Indian movies behind the walls of our homes, why not watch them in cinemas and bring this black economy under a legal framework to let government raise evenues.

    I wonder what is Pakistani culture which we are in a perpetual fear of losing? I always thought we live in a cultural desert.

    Indian movies – bring them on.

    The whole world feels happy about cultural contacts, but somehow we are always afraid. I bet its the very strong inferiority complex we have about our culture which is responsible for this. The bigger threat to our culture is from within, as we consider most of cultural activities to be haram anyway. I for one have always genuinly felt that Indian music has never been good enough to compete with Pakistani.

    @Jameela, what was the reason again for not watching indian movies in theaters? Hypocracy or what?

    “I bet its the very strong inferiority complex we have about our culture which is responsible for this. ”

    Oh c’mon, this is natural. I mean who would be proud of killings, terrorism.

    “I for one have always genuinly felt that Indian music has never been good enough to compete with Pakistani.”

    You mean film music??? anyhow the world, including pakistan does not think so.

    In classical music all pakistan did was to rename raag chandrakaus to chaankaus and claim it as their own. But again repainting other’s work and claiming as their own is a national character of pakistan. Remember China’s missile ending up as Ghauri/Hatf etc.

    BTW LCMD is a crap movie and deservingly flopped in India.

    hm, i haven’t yet seen any indian movie in my life or indian movies music etc… and just been to cinema once in my life time a month ago to see a premier of “the Game plan” in Philadelphia – but PK or Indian movies are just crap and waste of time.


  10. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on November 1st, 2007 @ 5:54 pm

    Ok if someone is up for pirated stuff then LimeWire Zindabad :D

    BTW, I have no plan to waste 3hrs but saw the trailor. The other girl looks much better and decent than that fat butt Rani.

    I wonder what kind of a movie Om Shanti Om will be… :/ After all, ‘Dard-e-Disco’ is the most annoying soundtrack of our times…


  12. Mr. Indian (unregistered) on November 1st, 2007 @ 8:49 pm

    Indians movies may be crap and it is your subjective opinion only, but pakis love it and they don’t want to watch their own movies. Now what does it tell about paki movies if you yourself don’t want to watch and prefer indian movies/songs instead. Good. At least shit knows how bad it stinks.


  13. ALi (unregistered) on November 2nd, 2007 @ 1:03 am

    No not pleez..I hate these indian movies..And why the heck are they playing it in our cinemas.. Kick’em out


  14. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on November 2nd, 2007 @ 4:34 am

    Indian, do you want to say that Indians JUST watch INDIAN movies? no hollywood flicks? kind of racism though.

    Mr. Indian said: But again repainting other’s work and claiming as their own is a national character of pakistan…

    Look who’s talking!

    Whether these movies appear legally or illegally in Pakistani cinemas isn’t as much a serious an issue as the utter disgrace of the genre of movie-making and the total sell-out of values, aesthetics and art depicted in indian movies. You put your biggest name of Amitabh Bachan in two (known) contemporary movies saying the exact words the original hollywood movies dialogues? Doesn’t sound like very dignified to me, if you ask.
    Indians are so desperate to show-off flesh and violence, and yet they suck so badly at the both that one finds japanese anime alot more artistically super duper than that. It’s time indians should totally start making porn movies so they may learn a thing or two in next couple decades.
    Oh, and I seriously think that Pakistani Pop kicks ass everywhere in South Asia. As for filmi music, well, whatever.
    Have total respect for the original classical and semi-classical artists and voices though but that’s not mainstream now, is it?

    Ezaz,

    “Whether these movies appear legally or illegally in Pakistani cinemas isn’t as much a serious an issue as the utter disgrace of the genre of movie-making and the total sell-out of values, aesthetics and art depicted in indian movies.”

    No. Whether bollywood movies are crap is not an issue. What is the real issue is that pakis, who otherwise hate india, love to watch bollywood movies. How utterly shameless, culture less ingrates must pakis be to watch the movies made by a country they hate. And the worst thing is, after watching indian movies, they hate us even more for being so much better. There is a technical word for it, It is called inferiority complex.

    mr. indian… i dont know what your problem is, but i am sure it’s difficult to pronounce!!!


  18. HASSAN' (unregistered) on November 3rd, 2007 @ 2:12 am

    didnt know that it is allowed to have screening of indian movies in Pak. n e ways I watched this moV and I agree with Asma that it is over rated moV


  19. Neena (unregistered) on November 3rd, 2007 @ 5:05 am

    Take a Hollywood plot, sprinkle in cheesy song-and-dance numbers and pour in a gallon of melodrama. Shake well, and you’ve got a Bollywood movie.” not my words read more here.

    It good to make it legal to earn some money out of it but it should be reciprocated by Indian media too by Pakistani Dramas which I know are popular among Hindi/Urdu speaking Indians.


  20. Mr. Indian (unregistered) on November 3rd, 2007 @ 5:52 am

    Neena,

    Why should indians have to tolerate inferior paki dramas just for the sake of reciprocity. We don’t watch paki programs and we don’t care either. You have a problem with that, you know where to go.

    Even otherwise who is asking pakis to watch bollywood movies. We certainly not. Damn it, we don’t even get a dime from pakistan since all they watch is pirated movies or listen to pirated songs.

    Lastly Paki dramas are no longer popular. It was once popular back in late 1980s during VCR days and that too in north india. I agree that pak dramas were better than doordarshan dramas. Once private channels started, within no time indians stopped bothering about pak dramas. Heck even pakis themselves watch “kyonki saas bhee kabhee bahu thee” kinda serials. I just gloat because I know indian tv serials suck mostly. But pakis still love it. what inferiority complex.
    Bottomline: Culturally we own you. You have no culture of your own, unless terrorism is counted as one.

    personally I am not a tv man. I hardly watch tv. I am more of a movie buff/.


  21. Neena (unregistered) on November 3rd, 2007 @ 6:23 am

    Mr. Indian,

    I was once Ms. Indian so I know what I’m talking about. As for culture remember we used to be one not only we share a customs but we share several languages too. BTW, India has lot of cultures not one.

    PS. What does Terrorism had to do with anything here? Don’t change the subject. If you hate Pakistan so much why visit such sites.

    Culturally, India and Pakistan are the same and it is just a boundary between us.
    Being from South India (Hyderabad) and pretty far away from the borders, we have survived the horrors of Partition. But, North Indians and mainly Punjabis had suffered the brunt of Partition and that is the reason most Indians dislike (we dont hate you as we dont feel you deserve that) Pakistanis.
    Chill out guys…..times have changed and generations have changed. Let’s try to live in a peaceful world. No point hating each other !!


  24. chaku (unregistered) on November 19th, 2007 @ 4:21 pm

    jayjay is right// if all indian movies and tv officially BANNED IN pakistan then why people watching it? why this discusssion in this paki forum. it suggest the hypocritic paki attitude. first watch indian entertainment programs then throw stones to it. indian made programs, movies etc. for their people not for non-indians. indians have their own culture and they proud of it, they don’t need to follow others like pakis do,,
    @jameeela= what pakistani culture? music, dance , fun celebrations are banned in islam
