The Pakistani film industry has shown significant improvements since the last decade and is moving towards a promising future. Over the years, the quality of the Pakistani content has indeed grown. As per some critics and commentators, the credit of improved quality is due to the fact that better equipment and film making techniques have been implemented, but we all know cameras and such techniques do not play a huge role. What does play a huge role in how the cameras and techniques are executed and implemented throughout the movie/drama.
Of course, that can only be done by a skilled director.
