Maalik moie review

Maalik faced many bans and controversies this year, right from the release date till the re-release date. But as they say, a good attempt never goes in vein similarly Maalik made a strong impact. Audience loved the movie besides a few glitches in the movie. The movie was later released on Youtube and those who cannot access cinema watched it over Youtube and praised it massively. The idea of Maalik is good and it is time that movies on such topics are made – result is obvious; audience loved it.

  1. Abdulllah

Those who can recall the incident, on which Abdullah is based, have tremendously loved the movie and cried their hearts out when watching it. A movie that is based on reality and free from any fake amalgamation is hardly witnessed in Pakistani cinema.
