It seems that the black clouds on the film industry are moving away and we would soon be able to see some good quality Lollywood Entertainment in cinemas and our TV and computer screens with good quality. ‘Good Quality’ here means big budgets, hi-tech technical work, strong scripts, powerful casting and yeah most importantly ‘the language’ for entertainment should be in a universal language.
Bol : Cast: Atif Aslam, Mahira Khan, Iman Ali, Humaima Abbasi, Khayyam Sarhadi and Shafqat Cheema, Music: Atif Aslam, Hadiqa Kiyani, Producer: Shoaib Mansoor, Director: Shoaib Mansoor
Bol is the second project of renowned director Mr. Shoaib Mansoor as (Film Director & producer) in Film Industry after his 2007 blockbuster hit ‘Khuda Key Liye (KKL)’. It seems like he (Shoaib Mansoor) is really a very big risk taker and a music lover as he is now casting “Music Sensation of Pakistan” Atif Aslam, quite similar to his last project (KKL) in which he casted Fawad Khan of very famous Pakistani Band (EP).
Victim: Cast: Humayun Saeed and Meera, Music: (Unknown), Producer: Wajahat Abbas Kazmi, Umar Wahidi and Ehtisham Siddiqui( Co- producer), Director: Aamir Zafar, Movie would be based on the post 9/11 and political situation of the world.

This is the overall 12th make of Devdas (novel) and 3rd Top Make. The interesting thing in the movie is that all songs are sung by the Indian singers, which includes some of the big names like ‘Asha Bhosley, Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik’. No doubt songs have got really excellent reviews and the music quality is also good. Songs are available on youtube.com, click on the movie title to listen the songs of the movie. Although the movie got great pre -release reviews, but viewers are questioning the casting, especially the casting of man in ‘Lead Role’ Nadeem Shah as Devdas. Overall, movie looks good, now time will tell us what is good and what is bad. So just hold your nerves now.
