The Pakistani Cinema is gradually coming into action after the long break of the pandemic as cinemas are going to open countrywide. Recently we came across the teaser of the upcoming movie ‘Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad’ and people started to compare it to ‘Singham’ and ‘Dabang’ from Bollywood. However, I believe that we shouldn’t criticize and compare everything and instead encourage our artists to showcase their talents.
It is gratifying to see that the Pakistani movie directors and filmmakers are coming out of the box to make such action films and all they need is appreciation. ’50 Crore’ is also an upcoming movie starring Faisal Qureshi, Aijaz Aslam, Saboor Aly, Zhalay Sarhadi, Faryal Mehmood, Anoushey Abbasi, Noman Habib, Mehmood Aslam, Asad Siddiqui, Naveed Raza, and Omer Shehzad. The movie is about a gang of screwballs who are planning for a big robbery. But wait, we have already seen something like this, haven’t we?
Yes, you got it right! The movie 50 crore looks like the Lollywood version of the Netflix Series ‘Money Heist’. The movie’s teaser shows that all the characters are named after various locations in Pakistan such as Dadu, Mirurkhas, Rahim Yar Khan, Chaman, and others; just like it was done in Money Heist. From the pictures and teaser, it is evident that there are similarities between the two movies, but what we know is that it is going to be a big action-packed film.
Now come to the response from social media, which is hilarious as ever. The public reaction was understood for something like this and now that everyone knows what the movie seems to be is a rip-off of the Spanish series, the responses are quiet humorous. Following are some of the best tweets and comments we have seen on the social media so far:

While some of the peeps were making fun of the movie, there were some who showed support too:
We must all support upcoming Pakistani movie “50 CRORE” instead of comparing it with money heist. Give our own film industry a chance. Help it grow.
