Rave reviews: Bol inspires audiences across the border

Bol's release was highly anticipated in India after it was announced earlier this year that it would be releasing this EId.
NEW DELHI: Film maker Shoaib Mansoor’s second film ‘Bol’opened in India on Eid to rave reviews on Wednesday.
The film, which is the first by the talented director after his critically acclaimed and award-winning Khuda Kay Liye (2007), released in India on August 31 as planned.
According to IANS film critic Satyen K. Bordoloi, who gave Bol a generous 4/5 stars, said that it was embarrassing to see a Pakistani film ‘eclipse’ most commercial Indian films, especially considering the fact that compared to India, Pakistan produces a handful of films annually.
He added that Mansoor deals with issues such as women’s emancipation, trans-sexualism, right to education and religiosity with care and makes the audience feel for each issue.
Bordoloi said that the Indian audience could easily relate to the film, referring to female infanticide in India, adding that in it there lies a message for us all, to speak out against oppression, be it in the political sphere or the personal.
The only flaw in the movie according to the critic was that the melodrama got ‘overbearing’ sometimes.
Taran Adarsh of India’s popular cinema portal ‘bollywoodhungama.com’ and one of India’s most respected film critics gave the film a 4/5 too.
“A courageous film that has the guts to expose issues plaguing the society. It raises questions, challenges the age-old customs and mirrors a reality most convincingly. A brilliant film embellished with bravura performances. Not to be missed!”
According to indiaglitz.com, Indian veteran actor, Naseeruddin Shah,was reported to have said that he wished he was a part of the film. Having worked earlier in Mansoor’s Khuda Kay Liye, making a brief yet powerful appearance in the movie,  Shah was offered the role of ‘Hakim Sahab’ but had to refuse due to date issues. Shah termed the film as powerful and was eager to show it to his friends and family too.
Earlier this year, when the film released on June 24 in Pakistan, was declared a super hit despite receiving mixed reviews , as it had received a tremendous opening.
Khuda Kay Liye was the first Pakistani film to be officially released in India after many years, and Mansoor was confident that Bol would also hook the Indian audience.
Bol features the talents of Humaima Malick, singing sensation Atif Aslam, VJ Mahira Khan and model-turned actor Iman Ali, along with many other popular Pakistani actors. The film tells the tale of a girl who and challenges the age-old societal norms of treating women as the lesser sex. Based in Lahore, the film aims to highlight the plight of women, who are often treated as burdens by a large percentage of society. The movie also treads no-go areas like homosexuality and the life of eunuchs, in addition to talking about Shia-Sunni dynamics.

Bol Reviews By Taran Adarsh (Indian Film Critics)

Shoaib Mansoor is one of the brightest names to come out of Pakistan. A few years ago, his film KHUDA KAY LIYE, which tackled the theme of terrorism, won wide acclaim and praise. The supremely talented storyteller is back with another bold and hard-hitting effort called BOL, which unmasks the dual standards prevalent in the society. In fact, we make tall claims about the rights of women and how they are equal to men, but if one looks around, especially in the under-developed countries, the disparity and inequality is for all to see.

Shoaib is indeed a courageous storyteller and this film must have sparked off a debate when it released in Pakistan several weeks ago. Like KHUDA KAY LIYE, BOL addresses the religious extremism in the neighboring country. It's about a daughter who stands up against her father, but most importantly, she dares to defy the age-old societal norms that treat women as lesser beings. The fact that a Pakistani film-maker has had the courage to tackle this theme makes it all the more commendable and praiseworthy.

BOL makes you peep into the lives of a family living in Pakistan, making us aware of the predicament, the anguish, their determination to survive against all odds. The family decides to solve their problems, but get into deeper troubles gradually. The struggle for life and death is what catches your eye.
BOL shocks and stuns also because of the sub-plots in the plotline and the twists and turns in the story. Of course, I wouldn't like to reveal the details and spoil the fun of watching this brilliant fare, but I'd like to add that one has rarely witnessed such themes on the big screen. It serves as a wake-up call for the orthodox types on both the sides of the border. 
BOL has a striking story to tell. It's about a Hakeem Sahab's quest to have a son that sees his wife give birth to fourteen children, but only seven daughters survive. The eighth is a hermaphrodite, much to Hakeem's embarrassment. The film throws light on this family's problems and how each member of the family reacts to them, taking contradicting decisions and handling awkward situations.

BOL takes you on a roller coaster journey of emotions. A story that dares to bare the troubles of a certain society: the status of women in the neighboring country, the life of a hermaphrodite and of course, the quest for a male heir to keep the family name alive. Admiring BOL and not appreciating Shoaib would be doing a great disservice to the individualist film-maker. He deserves brownie points for not just choosing a controversial subject, but also handling it with aplomb. That's not all, for Shoaib has extracted wonderful performances from the principal cast.

Shoaib is a fantastic raconteur and you realize how talented he is at several points of the narrative. The difference of opinion between the eldest daughter [portrayed by Humaima Malik] and her father [Manzar Sehbai] is electrifying. You can feel an undercurrent of tension every time they share the screen space. Also, the start of the film, when Humaima begins to narrate her story and the way her story unfolds, is shocking.

On the flip side, the narrative dips, albeit sporadically, during Iman Ali's portions. Besides, a song filmed on her wasn't necessary in the first place and looks like a complete add-on. Even her performance isn't as invigorating as the remaining cast. Yet, despite the minor aberrations, BOL leaves you spellbound at the conclusion of the story.

BOL belongs to both Humaima Malik and Manzar Sehbai, who stand out with terrific portrayals. Both are splendid in their respective parts. Atif Aslam and Mahira Khan don't get much scope and they are strictly okay. In fact, Atif Aslam's screen space is limited to a few sequences and a song or two. Shafqat Cheema is exceptional; it's a character that works very well in the plot. Zaib Rehman [the mother] is most effective.

On the whole, BOL is a courageous film that has the guts to expose issues plaguing the society. It raises questions, challenges the age-old customs and mirrors a reality most convincingly. A brilliant film embellished with bravura performances. Not to be missed!
