Every few years a film surprises the audience by bringing it closer to reality, distinguishing it from ordinary things and keeping it on the fringes of the stage with its convincing performances.Last year it was Cake, this year it is Laal Kabootar in Pakistani Review.
While Aaliya is looking for the murderer of her journalist, Adeel wants to make money quickly to go to Dubai and for a better life.
Enter a corrupt police officer (Rashid Farooqi), a demonic businessman (Mohammad Ahmed) and their henchmen and you get a criminal thriller that shows Karachi exactly what it is. Aaliya manages to catch the murderer or Adeel arrives in Dubai, this is the secondary problem.
The main question is “What is Laal Kabootar” and this question will keep you at its peak in the plot.
When did you last see a Pakistani film in which you saw characters instead of actors?
Laal Kabootar takes you to this region with his perfect cast and his proof that Mansha Pasha looks at the girl looking for a Laal Kabootar, Ahmed Ali as the man who wants a better future and Rashid Farooqi as the agent we don’t have don’t want to break the boxes. In addition, the film is recorded as a film, with no black frames in the center, with suitable frames, more than lifelong action sequences that can be used in real locations instead of in sets.
The background score completes the story, even if the old viewers don’t accept it, it synchronizes perfectly with everything on the screen. For the first time, scriptwriter Ali Abbas Naqvi is doing great, even though the offensive words are disturbing and could have been reduced to add more commercial value.
Judgment – 4/5
Laal Kabootar is perhaps the first feature film by Kamal Khan, but he has been on the scene for some time and makes great video clips as a director. He chose an interesting subject for his first film and what helped him is the success of the web series, including Sacred Games and Mirzapur. He seems strongly inspired by Guy Ritchie’s film style and its value, because no one in Pakistan tries to pursue the British director when his films seem closer to our situation than the others.
Influential actors adapt perfectly to their characters, even if those from the theater have nothing to do (such as Syed M Jameel) or strive to spend most of their time on the screen to show their talents (Akbar Islam) and go to the sea. All in all, this is a unique watch for anyone who believes that we cannot make good movies in Pakistan because Laal Kabootar is at the top, with the best movies ever made in the country.
