Cinematic film being a team work demand full devoted performance from all artists either they are Directors, Producers, Singers, Writers, Lyricists, Musicians or even Film Journalists. They have their own specific role to perform to make a film worth watching. After director, writer is one who plays very vital role in the success of any film. A strong story may hide many weaknesses of films and make the film able to attract the attention of the film spectators. We have very renowned poets as film writers in our film history.

Artists appeared in Pakistan cinema as lyricists of film have been included in these pages leaving aside their popularity graph or appearance frequency. Priority is given to their performance and acting over their personal life with their plus and minus. Being property of Pakistan, for   every artist is as significant and respectful as anyone else character in the antiquity.

Dear Viewers,

Undoubtedly, all the artists and professionals of cine-world have indeed worked very hard, spent their days and nights in making motion pictures just to amuse and entertain us. Some of their film work proved to be a master piece but what so ever their business status was; one factor is established that it is now part of our cultural history. Unfortunately, mostly their work being destroyed just because of the mentioned reasons while negating its importance. Thus there is dire need to do some arrangements to preserve it with the same zeal and enthusiasm what rest of the world is doing.



"Now its our obligatory compulsion to preserve their work, you may also contribute and assist mpaop in preserving and restoring our cultural heritage by sharing some information, if you possess in shape of documents, film prints (any format like 8, 16, 35mm, videos etc). In this regard if you have some query or you can be of any help in this cause please Contact here…! "
