You need an emperor's vision to execute a project as grand as Maula Jatt: Writer Nasir Adeeb

What goes behind the scene of a record-breaking film? A powerful script? Check. An ensemble cast? Check. Flawless direction? Check. Brilliant cinematography? Check and check. 

But more than that, writer Nasir Adeeb thinks what it really takes is the backing of a producer who will stick by a project through thick and thin. Adeeb, who has a glittering career of over 50 years, has written 412 films so far. But 1979's Maula Jutt remains a classic that would always be touted as his best work.

The writer also helped filmmaker Bilal Lashari pen the script and dialogues of his latest offering, The Legend of Maula Jatt. In one of the promotional events, Adeeb shared the secret behind making Lashari's magnum opus.

"If producers in Pakistan wish to make films like Bilal Lashari, there are two things that they would require," he shared on a local television show. "You have to pay attention to minds; not the faces. Secondly, you'd need a 'Shah Jahan' to make a film as opulent as this," Adeeb added as he praises producer Ammara Hikmat. "It's easy to make a map of the Taj Mahal; it's not easy to bring in the manpower."

Previously, in an interview with The Express Tribune, Lashari while lauding Hikmat, shared, "I would really like to praise Ammara. To have this kind of budget for a film and have that creative freedom alongside is rare. She supported me through and through. She is the person who turned this film into what it is today.” 

The phenomenal response to the film has led to full house screenings across the world and queues outside cinemas, with exhibitors continuously scheduling additional screenings to meet consumers’ demands. Such has been the adulation for the film that standing ovations have been recorded at cinemas globally. The number of screens for the movie are increasing every day.

A reboot of Yunus Malik’s 1979 cult classic Maula Jutt, the film is a re-telling of the story of the rivalry between Maula Jatt and Noori Natt. Directed by Lashari, The Legend of Maula Jatt also stars Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, Mirza Gohar Rasheed, Faris Shafi, Ali Azmat, Nayyer Ejaz, Shafqat Cheema, Raheela Agha, Zia Khan and Saima Baloch.
