20th June 2018 Shaheen Rajan 0

I travelled almost 150 kilometers to watch 7 Din Mohabbat In, so you don’t have to if it’s not worth it. This is the first time that a Pakistani movie has been screened across Europe, thanks for Ishq Magazin; that alone is a commendable milestone for Pakistani films. Now on to the movie […]

Please let it be known that I was really looking forward to Veere Di Wedding as I expected it to capture the essence of female friendship, mirror that particular kind of chemistry women share and be a feel-good flick. Did it meet my expectations? Let’s see. The basic premise of […]
