Permit (1979)

Permit (1979) Cast: Sultan Rahi, Aasia, Chakori, Afzal Ahmed, Ilyas Kashmiri, Bahar Director: Imtiaz Quraish Nutshell: Typical masala laden violence ridden pot boiler and a fab four sided gandaasa     This action-packed masala laden pot boiler arrived just five months after the legendary Maula Jat but failed to live up to expectations at the Box Office. The film is jam packed full of typ...

Jano Kapatti (1976)

Cast:  Munawar Zareef, Aasia, Iqbal Hasan, Anita, Najma Mehboob, Munawar Saeed. Director:  Naseem Haider Shah Nutshell:  Munawar Zareef at the height of his powers in an extraordinary tale of a woman who undergoes a sex change to become a man!  Astonishing.     Anyone even slightly familiar with Munawar Zareef’s work will know that he took enormous delight in doing drag, arguably the str...

Sher Babbar (1977)

Sher Babbar (1977) Starring: Sultan Rahi, Aasia, Iqbal Hassan, Najma, Ilyas Kashmiri, Nasira Director: Akram Khan Synopsis: The story of an honourable man fighting against injustice (yawn!)     Sher Babbar was director Akram Khan’s follow up to the wonderfully cheap and sleazy Aaj da Badmaash which had sadly run into trouble with the censors due to its upfront, no nonsense vulgarit...

Ultimatum (1976)

Ultimatum (1976) Cast: Sultan Rahi, Aasia, Ghazala, Kaifi, Inayat Bhatti, Iqbal Hasan, Afzal, Bahar Director: Kaifi Nutshell: mid 70’s potboiler is the usual vengeance based, social injustice yarn     This film with the rather catchy title was yet another completely formulaic effort from the swinging 70’s that managed a fair run at the Box Office despite its shortcomings. We ...

Dukki Tikki (1976) AKA Club Dancer

Dukki Tikki (1976) AKA Club Dancer Cast:  Aasia, Shahid, Nazli, Anita, Shahnawaz Director:  M. J. Rana Synopsis:  Comedy of mistaken identities ranks as one of the sleaziest  of all the cheap flicks from the sleazy 70s.   Pindi Wal , Khatarnaak, Khaufnaak, Dulhan Aik Raat Kii, Nawab Zada, Aaj da Badmaash and Club Dancer are considered amongst the most notorious films ever to have emerged from...

Nawabzada (1975)

Nawabzada (1975) Cast: Asad, Aasia, Najma, Iqbal Hassan, Nazli & Afzaal Ahmed Director: Akram Khan Synopsis: Cheap, cheesy and charmingly sleazy…just what the doctor ordered!   One has now watched enough Punjabi films to realize that anything associated with the name of producer director Akram Khan is virtually guaranteed to provide a torrid dose of smut, sleaze and kinetic, demente...

Akhri Goli (1977)

Akhri Goli (1977) Cast: Yusuf Khan, Aasia, Mustafa Qureshi, Anita, Nasira Director: Rehmat Ali Synopsis: crass potboiler in the mould of the notorious raunchy thriller Khatarnaak   Having admired the kinetic direction of Rehmat Ali in the blockbuster Khatarnaak and then in Khaufnaak and having been entranced by the thunderous thighs and voluptuous beauty of Anita we were in throes of delight ...

Hathkari (1975)

Hathkari (1975) Cast: Asiya, Yousuf Khan, Iqbal Hassan, Najma, Afzaal Ahmad, Mustafa Qureshi, Bahar, Ali Ejaz Director: Haider Chaudhary Synopsis:  Meandering, morality laden Punjabi action flick “inspired” shamelessly by Bollywood’s Deewar.   There are so many successful Lollywood films that we just don’t talk about.  Partially because they usually don’t have much aesthetic...
