If you went out to watch one of the new Pakistani releases over the Eid holidays and left the cinema disappointed, you're not alone.

Model and actor Sadaf Kanwal has a bone to pick with local filmmakers. Taking to social media, Kanwal did not hold back on the savagery, writing: "Are only the same 2 directors going to give us good, entertaining films every year? What is everybody else even doing? Seriously, worst 3 days for the films."

Sonya Hussyn, whose debut flick Azaadi was also amongst the movies released on Eid, responded on the post, stating "we need to understand that there are different genres when it comes to film-making" and the fact that most shows are sold out is a success in itself.

But Sadaf did not hold back from speaking her mind, rightly pointing out that maybe, just maybe the fact that Bollywood films were banned on Eid contributed to all shows being sold out.

She replied, "I understand where you’re coming from and I agree, every film cannot be a comedy but at the same time if we’re going to go another route, which I’m totally for, we need to learn to execute that idea and sadly, we didn’t. As for those specific films being sold out, that’s amazing! But if the Indian films weren’t banned this weekend I really don’t think those films would have been sold out."

Your move, Sonya.
