Syed Noor, a Pakistani film director and scriptwriter, has delayed the release of his upcoming movie ‘Bhai Wanted‘ due to some last minute changes in the script. He was very disheartened that he would not be able to showcase his masterpiece on Eid, however, he ensured that he is already looking for a suitable date for his upcoming tragic movie ‘Price of Honor’ right after Eid.
“The post-production of Price of Honor has been completed abroad and I am trying to make it into as good a product as possible. It will indeed be a beautiful film and a significant addition to Pakistan’s film industry,” Noor told The Express Tribune
Watch the video below:
He is planning on a worldwide release of the film, with the film hitting the major cinemas across Europe, UK, USA and India along with running in the theatres of the major cities of Pakistan.
‘Price of Honor’ was initially scheduled to release in July 2010 but was pushed to April 2011, and then due to some technical issues in post-production, the movie again got delayed for four years.

The story of Price of Honor touches the human rights issue of honor killings in Pakistan and received a lot of applause by the film fraternity right after Noor had unveiled the project. Noor opted to shoot the film in Southern Punjab with a major chunk of it being filmed in Rahim Yar Khan.

“The script is not about any individual’s personality or a victim of honor killing. It is just about the prevalence of an issue that has been fuelled by repeated ignorance and illiteracy.” Noor said.

Noor felt elevated when he signified how the film industry is gradually moving towards a new era and the old lot of filmmakers has an equally significant role in this contribution as the newcomers.
