It's the first of its kind, the filmmakers of telefilm Sangat, an upcoming contemporary production of Baloch cinema, claim.

Speaking to DawnNews, producer Waheed Alblushi said the team is looking forward to revive cinema in the province.

"Though the Pakistani film industry is undergoing a revival of sorts, the Balochistan film industry has yet to develop as there is a dearth of the filmmakers here," Albulshi said.

"As a result, cinemas in Balochistan are being converted into shopping malls," he added. "In the last few years, four out of the seven cinemas in Quetta have been closed down due to lack of productions."

About the movie he said Sangat is a story about five friends with lots of drama, music and action sequences.

It was filmed in Oman, and was made with a budget of Rs 3 million.

Albulshi further added that plan to release the film nationwide as well as in Gulf states is under works, and that it will premiere in Balochistan in the "coming weeks".

Though the first trailer of the film came out last year, due to some production glitches, the project had been delayed, Sangat director Sami Sarang said.

"We want to show a different side of Balochistan," Sarang said.

"We are hoping to lay down a foundation and build a strong film industry so that the young Baloch talent has a platform to showcase their skills."
