This movie has definitely raised the bar for Pakistani cinema. The cinematography and acting was top-notch. The story was beautifully shown and often gave goosebumps. The film touches on important issues like patriarchy and succeeds in this. The transgender community of Pakistan is less often treated like other communities. There several deep moments in the film where the viewer is forced to question stereotypes. Great job by saim sadiq and sarmad khoosat. It is sad to see why this film became controversial. It genuinely and accurately depicts the “Lahori” people and mindset. Highly recommend this movie!
One of the best South Asian movies ever
Beautifully written/direct tale of a family’s misfortune. Joyland left me in tears. Great Job Pakistan for promoting pure art. Great storyline and delivery!
Depiction of dance “mujraverse” was pretty nice. Hoping Joyland will pickup some major awards and open pathways for Pakistani art to become more mainstream. So much talent and cultural beauty that we can share with the world.
Lastly, to all supporting movie ban: Please take a close look at your society. It is what it is. People live diverse lives and they aren’t going to change. That’s the beauty of being human. Nothing against islam or Pakistani culture in this movie.
