Staring Moammar Rana, Javed Sheikh, Firdous Jamal, Noor Bukhari, Asad Malik, Jia Ali, Sohail Sameer, Nayyar Ejaz, Kamran Mujahid, Arbaz Khan, Rachel Gill and Nimra Khan it’s a story written by by Dr. Tauseef Razzaq and Inam Qadri, dedicated to Air Force hero of the ‘65 war, Squadron Leader MM Alam and highlights heroes Major Aziz Bhatti Shaheed, Major Shafqat Baloch, Major Shabbir Sharif Shaheed and many other unsung heroes.

The theme of the movie is related to the heroes of Pakistan and an excellent effort to highlight about the real heroes of Pakistan. It is something which could be shown to children so that they are aware of the sacrifices that so many Pakistani soldiers have made for our beautiful country. The movie is well directed with some shots closely filmed and framed. Yet it has some major flaws in ACTING and the movie seems like it has less continuation and flow. But where it falters; it does not fall down. It is better filmed, better planned and better thought out marking major points in the history than any Pakistani movie released of this genre. Produced by Dr. Tauseef Razzaq and directed by Umair Fazli, the movie is based on a narrative story where Hamza, (played by Javed Sheikh) is travelling into a flashback to the 1965 war and all that happened back in the war.

Thesaya-e-khuda-e-zuljalal-cast-9re are scenes in the movie which give a flashback of Quaid-e-Azam’s interaction with Gandhi and mass killings at the time of Partition. When Hamza’s son Haider grows up and turns out to be a typical police officer filling his pockets with heavy bribery, it had made his father upset. But as terrorism increased and Haider is given a project to counter terrorists it challenges and transforms Haider’s life, a metaphor for Pakistan as a whole as it faces this existential threat.  The commentary of the film is on point and beautifully said at some instances. The film has instances when the acting was below the mark with a simple storyline, and the characters are stereotypical, but it is an informative film and fun to watch.
