4 Reason to Watch Madaari

4 Reasons You Should Watch ‘Madaari’ on Eid-ul-Azha

It’s rare that a new voice emerges from cinema in Pakistan that has a compelling story to tell. Seraj-Us-Salikin’s directorial debut, ‘Madaari’, is a story that is worth telling. It’s a homegrown story that is drawn from his own experience, and it looks like it might just be the best film to come out this Eid.

Here are 4 reasons you should watch ‘Madaari’ this Eid Ul Azha:

1. Madaari is the Story of So Many People Around Us

Target killings, rigged elections, political parties victimizing the youth, and the ambition to rise above poverty are all things not just familiar to Karachiites, but all Pakistanis. The grand circus that has been running in Pakistan has affected everyone from rural to urban, from rich to poor. Hence, ‘Madaari’ is a film that will appeal to its audience on a deep, personal level.

2. It’s Tone is Markedly Different from Any Other Film Releasing on Eid Ul Azha

Madaari’s tone is sombre and dark, compared to most other films releasing not just this Eid, but year round in Pakistan. Only a handful of projects are made seriously enough in Pakistan without turning towards cliché or silly writing. ‘Madaari’ promises to take its audience seriously and that’s why you should buy a ticket.

3. Madaari Can Be The Dark Horse of Pakistani Cinema this Eid Ul Azha

Seraj Us Salikin is an unknown name in the Pakistani film industry. This is his first feature. He’s done all this without any major sponsors or backers. He’s the underdog. Doing all this and coming up with a professionally shot film with decent production is nothing short of amazing. You should not just applaud his efforts, but pay them back with your wallet.

4. Madaari Is Introducing Young Talent into the Film Industry

Madaari’s cast is filled with talented performers, both old and young. However, its lead actor, Ibad Alam Sher, and Seraj Us Salikin in particular are both young. Talent like this should be nurtured and encouraged in our industry.

‘Madaari’ will hit theaters on Eid-ul-Azha. You should go book your tickets now.

Stay tuned to PakistaniCinema.Net for our full review of ‘Madaari’ coming out very soon.
