+ High Points
i – Both of the lead stars, Saba Qamar and Yasir Hussain performed very well on screen. It helped the film to gain interest for the audience as they watched their unusual yet good chemistry. Other Honorable Mentions: Behroze Sabzwari.
ii – The cinematography is good with the scenery shots are well taken with promoting the beauty of our great nation.
iii – The makeover & hair-styling and slim physique of Saba Qamar made her gorgeous to look at.
iv – The screenplay, its humor throughout the film is funny and enjoyable.
v – The minor role of Ali Zafar is a good induction in the film.
+ Low Points
i – There is no proper structure of storytelling. There are scenes which are totally irrelevant and unrelated with the film’s plot.
ii – In Act III, the character of Behroze Sabzwari and Rubina Ashraf becomes so rubbish and idiotic just like its weak script.
iii – The script is so badly written that the construction of its story telling is just a forgettable one.
iv – Most of the things happening in the film are highly illogical and impractical. I don’t want to give away its spoilers but the questions would arise as why is this happening? or what’s the point of showing this’? really, i am telling you just… don’t ask!
v – Karachi Se Lahore (2015) showed too many product placements which was very annoying to watch. Similarly, in Lahore Se Aagey repeats the same mistake twice.
vi – Good mimicry does make one smile or even laugh however this technique is highly over used by weak writers to fill in a supporting comic character. The Big B mimicry was good in this film but this is not a creative way to bring humor in your work. Don’t pick the easy way out. Instead, work on your writing skills.
Since, Lahore se Aagey, never takes itself too seriously and ends up being a good time pass.
Rate: 2.75 out of 5 stars
