The script and my character are very different; I haven’t done anything like that before. It was a challenge but it was fun.” Ahmed Ali Akbar plays a taxi driver who hopes to make it to Dubai. Unfortunately, from the looks of it, he is stuck in a tough situation.

Political figure Jibran Nasir said “it was a great movie totally loved it, amazing cast amazing acting, amazing music is been shot in a very different way. We have all these very different characters coming together and the narrative that binds them together and unfolds as it's moving along”.
Film Laal Kabootar’s plus point is the cutthroat acting which keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. The music keeps you grooving with its bilingual lyrics. The violence is very real and truly comes alive thanks to the masterful performances by almost every single actor in the film. Laal Kabootar is a bold film, a step away from the usual fare – there is no item number, no following of the traditional “formula”.Its a must watch movie.
