Kamal Khan, the award-winning music video and TVC director’s debut feature film Laal Kabootar, released across Pakistan in March 2019 in partnership with Geo. From the music to the screenplay and acting, the film generated rave reviews. And now, it is all set to hit cinema screens in Australia.
The crime thriller featuring Ahmed Ali Akbar, Mansha Pasha and Ali Kazmi in lead roles is slated to run in cinemas from May 16, 2019 (today) across Australia – in select cinemas in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.
“BIG NEWS! Delighted to announce that our film will be screening in Australia from the 16th of May. Don’t miss this chance to catch Pakistan’s most critically acclaimed film release of the year!” stated the official Instagram handle of Laal Kabootar.

Produced by Nehr Ghar Films, Laal Kabootar is a Karachi-based crime drama that strays away from the typical formula movies and is backed with great music, superb camera work and remarkable performances by the cast. In the film, Ahmed Ali essays the character of a taxi-driver looking for a way out of Karachi, while Mansha Pasha plays the role of Aliya Malik, a strong-headed girl who chooses to put up a fight after her world turns upside down.
Besides Mansha Pasha and Ahmed Ali, Laal Kabootar stars Rashid Farooqui, Salim Mairaj and Syed Mohammad Ahmed in important roles.
