A look through the years of Pakistani history told via a family and what they see/experience through their TV.
This film is a political satire, based on 55 years of Pakistan’s history and major events, which are viewed by a family representing a middle-class society in Karachi.
Each event is a scene, where the family receives the news through television and their reaction based on their misbelief in media and blaming others; the focus is always more toward political movements rather than on self-development.
This film is depicting the story of Pakistani society, through the perspective of the TV screen, where instead of people watching the TV, the TV is watching the people and their reactions; it’s a story of common man in Pakistan. That is one of the reasons the TV screen is not shown in the entire film and treated as another character.
The TV is showing the story of every household in Pakistani middle-class society. If someone asks any Pakistani, they can easily relate that they’ve done most of the things, and I portray these elements through a comical style. There are underlying messages and humor and at times the characters are very direct. Most of the conflict is through news where they are praising someone on their accomplishments in one scene and immediately reprimanding them on their misgivings in the other. I have tried to keep it subtle but also capturing direct reaction, keeping in mind the normal reaction of characters depicting any family, real and in a funny way. This is also the uniqueness of the film.
Every scene is different timeline, from one scene to another scene, I used interesting and eye-catching transitions.
