Yes Pakistani Film Industry is back on track. Many movies have already made to cinemas of which some worked and some didn’t. But that is how industries work. Isn’t it? Movies like Balu Mahi, Chalay thay Saath and Thora Jee le didn’t perform too well on the box office. On the other side Mehrunissa V Lub U and Yalghaar have performed better.
