Pakistani film industry known as Lollywood is committed to entertain the nation and represent the Pakistani cinema all across the world. Most of the films produced are in Urdu. However Punjabi, Pashto, Sindhi and balochi films are also released to represent the culture of Pakistani nation. In past, Pakistani film industry gave a tough time to Indian film industry and had three main areas of production, Lahore, Karachi and Dhaka. After the separation on Bangladesh, not only Dhaka got lost but in fact it disturbed the industry badly letting it fall down. Though Pakistani film industry consists of very able and talented directors, producers and actors, there have been many obstacles in the path of success of Lollywood.Being a developing country Pakistani economy is not favorable enough to invest much in Pakistani cinemas. Different taxes, Islamic laws, rules and regulations etc. limit the success of Pakistani film industry that was on its peak during 1960s under the government of general Aye Khan. Its downfall started in 1988 and till 2002, the industry could not make up to rise again and waited for a hero who could take the industry to the heights of success.
In the regime of general Pervez Musharraf in 2003, Pakistani industry again began to rise and produce successful hits one after another and stood with proud in front of the world at the release of “KHUDA K LIYE’ that was the biggest success till date and was able to compete the other cinemas at international level. Movies like love main gum, Virsa, Bol kept on pleasing the nation once again making them proud of their film industry.
WAAR has been the greatest gift our cinema has given to our nation. The movie defeated Bollywood blockbuster “Chennai Express” and Hollywood all-time favorite ‘FAST AND FURIOUS 6’ in business. Pakistani cinema is now getting better every day and welcomes the new talent who are the real heroes for the Lollywood.
We at Subrung pay tribute to our Pakistani Cinema by sharing with you the hits Lollywood has given to us.
