Pakistan has started to make very bad, illogical films and Bollywood got far bigger, Khans, and many of it's Superstars, big stars, just stars, became very popular, so releasing a Bollywood film in Pakistan won't be a problem, but Pakistani actors, who are awesome like Shaan, are much underrated, and most probably releasing Pakistani films in India is just a call for loss.

Nowadays, a good and bigger Pakistani films are of equal or even better than Bollywood big films. While Waar's standard seemed ahead of most of Bollywood films.

I think it may be because of lack of superstars that Pakistani industry had. They don't have mega stars like Khans of India by whoms name a film can be promoted. This means they had lack of mediums that can create buzz, hype and give a good quality release to their movies. Their some movie are no doubt excellent in content but their appriciation is restricted to a small group of people like we only, who tend to search quality movies, not to wait for content to come to use. Moreover, film industry in Pakistan is in growing stage, if they keep on making movies like Waar and Bol then I am sure that one day will come when exibitors from India will themselves request the producers of any big Pakistani movie to release their movie in India too.

By the way thanks for the encouragement.

acha.....!!..thik hai..phir bhi dekhunga ..kyunki I am a gr8 an of BOOM BOOM AFRIDI..

this film is not about afridi.but about a fan of afridi.and afridi only has cameo of 2 minutes

Haider bhai.........I know that..!!

It's not even about a fan of Afridi, that character is important, but the main plot isn't about him.

India movies are more entertaining than pakistani Films,Even pak people like indian dramas more pakistani(i guess,since my gf is from Pak and she loves Indian serials very much) And also may be due to financial issues

It has to do with only fan base, bwood movies possess a certain high level fan followin there in pakistan.. Indian stars are very much knwn there whereas lollywood is like alien to our societies.. So releasin a project which you knw is goin to flop in indian in anyway is prohibited by the makers.. They knw preparing as low as 50 prints costs around 5 to 10 lacs and this much amount they might not get under dist share..
