Two brothers, Sibtain Ahmed Karim Fazli and Hasnain Ahmed Karim Fazli, earned a good name by making social films during pre-partition era. There third brother, Mr. Fazal Ahmed Karim Fazli, an ICS Officer of Govt. of India who was also a renowned poet/ writer. After retirement he started his own film production house with the name of Dabistan -e- Mahdood and started a new film named Shakir with new cast. He himself directed, written and produced this film, initially decided to take Kamal as hero but as the heroine of film Zeba was new so he changed his mind and casted Arif as hero who was an officer in Advertising Committee. Afterward this film proved the first and last film of Arif primarily due to the dynamic personality of the villain of film Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali who was initially hired on monthly wages as Assistant to director for rehearsals and dialogue delivery, later on after watching his performance Fazal Ahmed Karim Fazli included him as villain of the film. On completion Fazli changed the name of film from Shakir to Charagh Jalta Raha after consultation with his colleagues. Fazli made all out efforts to give this move with a classic touch, selected best lyrics of famous renowned poets and singers like Indian singer Talat Mahmood also sang a song for this film. During censer process the film was viewed by President of Pakistan and he appreciated the efforts of Fazli. More so on release, Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah did grace the ceremony to inaugurate the film. After this much efforts and publicity though film didn’t work at box office but gave some legends to Pakistan film industry like Zeba, Mohammad Ali, Deeba, Talat Hussain and Kamal Irani.

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.
