His Movie Yalghaar

Movie Yalghaar
WIDELY acknowledged to be Pakistan’s biggest and most lavish film production, the core team behind ‘Yalghaar’ were in London for its premiere and spoke to www.asianculuturevulture.com about their film and the future of Pakistani cinema. t is writer-director Hassan Rana’s second film, after the hugely successful ‘Waar’, released in 2013. Rana has returned to the subject of the Pakistani Army and the plot is losely centred around the military’s actual operations against militants in the Swat Valley – he told  He told us that he had ploughed his own funds into the film to the tune of $2.3m (about £1.8m) – while some media have estimated the film’s total cost was more than £5m. Journalist Sana Bucha makes her film debut and plays a TV news reporter who scrutinises the Army’s offensive in Swat and told us how she came to be in the film  But Rana first on why he felt compelled to make ‘Yalghaar’ from the outset. A tall man, impeccably attired, he has the air of a friendly, gracious Army/diplomat type (and has a part in the film as a general) and described himself as an ‘expat’, having lived in Britain for 10 years. “This is about introducing our soldiers to our people and to the rest of the world,” he told “As a nation, we have stopped mourning – we have lost so many people – over 80,000 have died. “After the Army Public School (attack in Peshawar in 2014) and the deaths of 146 kids (and staff) we were numbed as a nation.” It’s a patriotic movie for sure, lauding the men in uniform for their service to the nation. [5] Yalghaar Yalghaar

Hassan Rana Introducing Himself

Hassan Rana
Hassan Rana
Well, I am a businessman and a political economist by trade, however this journey of mine had extremely humble beginnings.  It starts on a cycle and ends on Ferrari 355 F1 Spider (which was the very first car I bought with my own money). The very first job I secured was of a janitor where I was studying and at the same time worked extremely hard to put myself through a business school. After I completed my education I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work at some of the front running fortune 500 organisations which taught me a lot. Then I ventured to work for myself, I choose the field of Oil Exploration, Trading in heavy metals and LED Lights Manufacturing. I achieved a reasonable amount of Financial success, which encouraged me to put my financial gains to do something important because I very firmly believe that money can only be useful if it is used for the purposes which are greater than ones self. [7] Hassan Rana
