The first Turkish language film in the country, Miracle in Cell No 7, is all set to be released in cinemas across Pakistan on March 13, 2020.
The film, which will be released in the Turkish language with English subtitles, is a way to replace the void left by a ban on Bollywood productions.
Miracle in Cell No. 7 is a heartrending story about the love between a mentally-ill father (Mehmet) who is wrongly accused of murder, and his young daughter. Mehmet’s life is turned upside down when he is sentenced to the death penalty for a crime he didn’t commit. Only a miracle can reunite him with his daughter so that they can return to the life they love so dearly.
In a special screening in Karachi, the film was attended by the media and film enthusiasts, including socialites and celebrities.
The film, brought by HKC Entertainment, was received with accolades, with practically everyone in the audience emerging teary-eyed and visibly moved.
