Omar Ali Khan
Paperback [Pre-order]

Omar Ali Khan, a sage of Lollywood's labyrinthine world, delivers a laugh-out-loud anthology of over 160 Pakistani film reviews in 'Loose Canons and Dangerous Curves.' Offering a fresh perspective on Pakistani cinema from 1947 to 2022, this anthology is a gutsy report of films that have struck a chord with the public psyche, including under-appreciated and overlooked titles.
