Laal Kabootar is not your average Pakistani movie, it is indeed true to its genre being a crime-thriller. The movie has been directed by Kamal Khan, starring Ahmed Ali Akbar and Mansha Pasha. Starting off as quite slow paced, the character establishment takes a good chunk of the film; which, in many ways is necessary to get the audience emotionally connected to the characters.
The movie was not overly-dramatized and was much more close to real life. Its a bold step towards taking on a different genre in Pakistani cinema moving aside from the typical rom-com series. Coupled with an unconventional way of story-telling which keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.
Nearing the end, the pace fastens, because of which there was eliciting tension. Laal Kabootar will have you on the edge of your seats wondering what will happen next and how far the characters are actually willing to go to carry out their revenge!
There was no love-story formed between Mansha Pasha and Ahmed Ali Butt’s characters. and it wasn’t required either. The needs and wants of both the characters were interlinked, the connection between the two was the common interest which they had, which was a breath of fresh air moving side from the typical storyline of love being the mutual connection between characters.
The ending surely packs a punch with the storylines and revenge plots of three different characters merging together into one for a grand showdown.
