Showbiz Highlights of 1963

Talash was second film of Shabnam and it was released at Jubilee cinema Karachi and proved a Super Hit film at box office. At the same time it was second golden jubilee super hit Urdu film which was produced at Dhaka East Pakistan (Now Bangladesh). Talash was a double version film released in Urdu and Bengali languages. In this film renowned film actress Shabana also appeared as extra and her name was reflected in titles as Ratna.

Baji was last film of Noor Jahan in which she gave her appearance although it was her guest appearance which she accepted on the request of S. Suleman the director of the film. Afterward she completely focused on playback singing. On release Baji proved to be an average film but its music remained at the top hit list in 1963. In recent past S. Suleman wanted to make a remake of the film as TV Drama but he never had the print of the film so the project was delayed.

Choorian was the first Pakistani film to be given the “only for adults” rating by the censors. The film, when seen from today’s standards, would seem quite clean to most audiences. But at the time, wearing body-baring dresses was taboo in Pakistan.   

Nasira, the famous Pakistani vamp, wore dresses in Punjabi film Chooian that exposed more than what was permissible at that time.

Shabab Keranvi’s films were not giving him the fruitful business so he decided to produce a Punjabi film as mostly Punjabi films were success of that time. Like wise he asked his assistant Haider Choudhry to mainly hold the direction seat under his supervision. On completion of the film he gave name of Haider Choudhry as director in the film titles. First film of renowned director Haider Choudhry as film director.

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…! "

 

 

Further more, in case of any inaccuracy, omission, addition, deletion, or submission, please assist mpaop in updating the information, your due participation in preserving the national heritage would be highly appreciated and after its analysis /approval by the research team, your contribution would immediately be reflected on this page with due veneration.

Thank you & profound regards,
