August 31, 2011: Shoaib Mansoor’s latest takes a closer look at life and its complexities
‘Bol’ follows a family that has several girl children and not a single son. In present day Lahore, a financially struggling scion of Delhi’s past nobility is burdened by a series of unfortunate events, some of his own making and others natural consequences of the old-fashioned value system that he so strictly stuck to. Hakeem Sahib’s character is complicated as he is, all at once, chauvinistic, conservative, honest and trustworthy.
