KARACHI: The much-awaited of the latest venture of Azad Film company and Mandviwalla Entertainment ‘Moor’ in association with Geo was released today all over Pakistan. This directorial venture of Jami includes powerful music produced by Strings alongside meaningful lyrics by Anwar Maqsood. The music of the film has garnered immense popularity amongst the masses already and is receiving ravishing reviews.
‘Moor’ set to release this Independence Day is a fresh breath of air for the booming Pakistani industry and depicts the picturesque beauty of Balochistan in every shot. Jami expressed his enthusiasm for the music by saying “The music is very soulful and mesmerising; it adds to the subtle underlying tones of the movie without overpowering the storyline. ‘Moor’ is based on a true story and hence the background score, music and even the lyrics are extremely relatable and specifically designed to connect with the common man.” Jami has always shown a keen interest in projects which are of social consequence; thus he cemented his ideology through this movie yet again. The celebrated Pakistani duo Strings have left no stone unturned in producing the music for ‘Moor’. The powerful vocals for ‘Moor’ have been recorded with famous names of the Pakistani industry such as Strings, Javed Bashir, Meesha Shafi, Rahim Shah, Rahma Ali and Noman Farooqui.
Jami commented that “Moor as a project is very close to my heart, we have focused on providing a combination of excellent music, storyline and direction in a single film for the masses; this is what we as the forbearers of the Pakistan film fraternity should continuously strive for. We hope ‘Moor’ will prove to be a delight to all local and overseas audiences.”
The cast of the movie includes seasoned actors of the Pakistani performing arts fraternity such as Hameed Sheikh, Samiya Mumtaz, Shaz Khan, Abdul Qadir, Soniya Hussain, Ayaz Samoo and Syed Eshita Mehboob.
Moor comes across as a

film committed to celebrate the stark, spectacular beauty of the rugged terrain‘. Moor’, which means ‘Ma’ in Pashto, can only be described as filmmaker Jami’s love letter to Balochistan, a place that usually stays in our emotional memory because of controversial headlines marred by stories of unflinching violence and absolute heartbreak.
