The Pakistani film Zinda Bhaag is making waves, especially after it became Pakistan's first entry to the Oscars in over 50 years. Excerpts from a conversation with the director duo, Meenu Gaur and Farjad Nabi.
Zinda Bhag is by no means a perfect film, but it takes risks and is immensely watchable. It's a film about serious things that refuses to take itself too seriously. That deserves applause.
Zinda Bhaag, a film starring Naseeruddin Shah and co-directed by India's Meenu Gaur, was today named Pakistan's first entry to the Oscars after a five-decade absence from the prestigious film awards.
