plot

Bol is all about life and revealing its complexities. It says about a family that makes barely ends meet. Moreover , the father subscribes to a set of values that we inherit and tightly hold on. It is a roller coaster of emotions, based in the heart of Lahore, the story takes place in a house full of daughters, with vibrancy ...more

Verdict

“With a fairly engaging plot and a set of dazzling performances, Bol brings forth the prejudices and abuse of religion in Pakistan. A good example of intelligent cinema combined with ample entertainment. Go for it!”

Agar maarna gunah hai toh paida karna gunaah kyun nahi is one of the best climax lines I have heard in a long time. Reminded me of a phone conversation I had with a friend who seemed to be on a baby producing spree. His reasoning was that uparwalah will take care of them. That is the view of Hakim Sayed Hasmutullah Khanab (Manzar Sehbai).

Whats it about? The film begins with Zainab (Humaima Malick talked about for being Wasim Akrams girlfriend) who is about to be hanged and has not spoken during her trial but has requested one last wish, to tell her story to the print and tv media.

Did it work for me? Yes/No

Why? Yes because Bol is powerful, discomforting & not an easy cinema to watch. It made me want to strangle the character of Hakim Sehbai. It was suffocating to watch him control the lives of his family members and Manzar Sehbai plays it brilliantly except for the few times when he get into theatrics. In fact the acting department is where this film gets everything right. Even the smallest role is well cast and acted perfectly. Shoaib Mansoor is definitely a writer /director from Pakistan who has bought some credibility to its cinema.

No because it is too long and the screenplay tries hard to justify a lot of issues in one film which gets a little overwhelming. Those looking for entertainment might find this film boring. The track about the eunuch son deserved another film altogether and the track about the tawaif Meena Kumari (Iman Ali) could have been avoided.

Final few words: Bol is an extremely important film and deals with its subject with great care. Wish the screenplay was more compact and focused.
