And they are calling it as good as Cake.
#LaalKabootar turns out a huge surprise. It is an edgy crime thriller which does not look a film but a reality unfolding in front of you and making you feel part of it. Another milestone for Pakistani cinema after Cake. @LaalKabootar #Lollywood

Critics are giving it a thumbs up to every aspect of the movie.
The music fits each scene perfectly, the visuals and production value is really top notch. Plus, you really feel this is Karachi. The dirt, violence, desperation, this movie is really a poem about the underbelly of Karachi. (2/n)

Sans any item song or distasteful humor, the crime-thriller has appealed to the audience.
Final verdict, go watch #LaalKabootar, it is a realistic, not over-the-top, street-crime thriller that really picks up momentum. It takes you to the edge of your seat and entertains you in a twisted way that esp a Karachiite would appreciate.

If we will continue to have epic movies like Laal Kabootar, we will not need Bollywood movies ever to entertain us.
Watch its trailer and we bet it will compel you to visit the cinemas near you.
