Given how Indian authorities treated Bilal Lashari’s The Legend of Maula Jatt, the prospects of any Pakistani film being released in India were small; yet, there is one cinematic classic Joyland that will soon be released in the neighbouring country.

Joyland, directed by Saim Sadiq, is one of the best works ever produced in Pakistan and is breaking all rules.

Variety claimed that Sadiq’s film Joyland, which had its US premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, would have a global release, including in India. The Oscars-shortlisted film Joyland’s production crew has confirmed that it will debut in India (distributed by PVR). In addition, Shoaib Mansoor’s Bol, which was released approximately ten years ago, was the last movie to be released in India before Sadiq’s most recent offering.

Sadiq’s creation unexpectedly managed to make it to the Oscars as Pakistan’s official entry and was also shortlisted despite the criticism and a restriction on theatrical release in some locations throughout the nation.

Before Joyland’s production, Sadiq talked about his choice and said: “The opportunity to represent Pakistan at the Oscars with a movie that I really feel is an accurate and sympathetic depiction of who we are as a nation fills me with awe, gratitude, and excitement. The triumphs and tragedies of these characters should encourage empathy in viewers both in Pakistan and beyond. We shall require a lot of prayers and well wishes from our folks in the upcoming months as we travel the path ahead.”

The director, age 31, continued, “We frequently bemoan the fact that, despite the existence of numerous outstanding artists across all genres, Pakistani art has continued to be woefully underrepresented in the global art scene. But this year has already been different. So I’ll take this opportunity to feel optimistic. I thank the selecting committee and wish Pakistan and Joyland the best of luck.”
