Actor In Law Was one Good Movie I watched It On Youtube though, Wish I was there to watch it on BIG Screen. But It was a Great show. Fahad Did well really well there. So Hope he gets the award.
Yaqut khan Mar 15, 2017 07:25pm
Janaan should be awarded as best film
olive Mar 15, 2017 07:27pm
Umar Khan Mar 15, 2017 07:54pm
The fact that a drama live Mann Mayal has even been nominated for Best Drama, Best Writer, Best Director and Best TV Actress renders these awards bogus.
Rameen khan Mar 15, 2017 09:11pm
I recommend Best TV writer Farhat Ishrat for Udaari,best TV actress Sajal Ali for Gul-e-Rana,best TV actor Ahsan Khan for Udaari,best TV play Udaari,best singer female Masooma Anwar for Maalick,best film Janaan.
Asad Mar 15, 2017 09:15pm
Mann mayal got award? See reviews on youtube episodes . Bogus awards. Indeed!
Syed Irfan ali Mar 15, 2017 10:51pm
Udaari was the best drama and Ahson Khan the best actor.
Faiza Mar 16, 2017 04:06am
Sorry to say but awards are a joke in PK. It's always the same people winning and not based on merit. It's merely a popularity contest.
Akil Akhtar Mar 16, 2017 06:04am
Mahira Khan over rated .....
Kamran Jawaid Mar 16, 2017 12:02pm
As Saba Qamar received 3 nominations; 1 for film and 2 for television, so i'm damn sure that she will win atleat one. Om Puri late also nominated perceived as an honor from Pakistan to Bollywood Legend along with Sherya Ghosal and Arman Malik. Serials from Urdu 1 Channels, whcih having highest TRP these days are observed ignored in nomination even Aisha Khan as Jeena, who made her historical performance in Man Mayal also ignored.
Kamran Jawaid Mar 16, 2017 12:02pm
Last year every one is witnessed the blockbuster treatment to music by Coke Studio 9 but we found no appreciation to Strings or to compiled album, except the few songs in nominations. Even Meesha Shafi and Naeem Abbas Rufi also ignored for Aya Lariyeen for the biggest hit of the year. Urdu1 had Tum Kaun Piya titled serial last year feat. Aiza Khan and Imran Abbas also not counted in a single nominations. While banned serial Udaari is appreciated and we support this serial too. Fahad Mustafa also has highest chances to win best actor award coz of his two nominations. It's all my verdict, no harsh feelings.
nuzhat nisar Mar 16, 2017 01:49pm
if mann mayal is in the nomination list, i lost hope in lux style awards, all style no substance #bogus. its like if you got trolls on social media, you will be nominated. who select the nominations by the way? if they ever see mann mayal? i am afraid to say yasir hussain is a real pain in that film, no comic timing, some gigs only, that film will be much more funny if yasir is not in it. how can anyone nominate him. adeel hussain is jem of an actor, why he is not nominated? he is way better than that irritating yasir. #lux-style-awards-please-dont-bother-to-give-awrads-some-of-these-nominees-only-deserve-a-lux-bar
nuzhat nisar Mar 16, 2017 03:36pm
yeah Kamran Jawed is right about ayesha khan, only she deserve a nomination from mann mayal.
Aamer Mar 16, 2017 05:38pm
Instead of Mann Mayal they should have nominated Zara Yad Kar. the acting was so good. Actor In Law was the best. Fahad and Mahwish Hayat deserve to win. Om Puri was good too. Sanam Saeed did a great job in Dobar Phir Say and Bachana. Film industry has been great in the past 2 years. So much Competition. Its a shame Armina Rana is not nominated for anything.
shahmirch Mar 17, 2017 06:10am
if udaari doesn't win every award its nominated for, it will be clear that the award show is fake. the drama was on everyone's tv, actors proved themselves, OST was in everyone's cars and minds. so ahsan khan for udaari, hadiqa kiani for udaari, director for udaari and best drama udaari. please.
Fatima Mar 17, 2017 06:12pm
Always thought LSA are real reflection and acknowledgement for talent but, seeing Mun mayal in the nominations.... it's a shame:( and even worse , maya Ali for best actress
nhuda Mar 18, 2017 04:33pm
Udaari had 4 strong female roles - none of them got nominated for best actress!
Irfan ul Huq Mar 18, 2017 10:29pm
@nhuda Bushra Ansari has given the performance of her life.
SARAH Mar 18, 2017 10:58pm
Hamxa Ali abbasi is not nominated for male actor ? Why that Maya Ali? Even that drama was not even of that standard to be nominated... Udaari; a desrving one !
