A Girl in the Jhelum!

A Girl in the Jhelum is the script of Syed Noor’s documentary film story, which shall deserve an Oscar if made, but it is already been stolen by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy as The Girl in the River!

Veteran Lollywood director accused the Oscar Lady for copying his idea in her second documentary movie, immediately after winning an Oscar for it. What Syed Noor didn’t know however is the fact that Sharmeen has been discussing about her movie all this while. She even discussed it on a mass level at the Karachi literature Festival 2016, which took place just a few days ago. It is surprising that Syed Noor didn’t come up with this copyright claim all this while. Maybe he was waiting for Sharmeen to win an Oscar because he was sure she would as it was the brilliance of his mind!

Syed Noor displayed some sentimental side too as he declared that this matter shall not be approached legally by him because he is not agonized but disheartened due to credit not given to him.

There are many like Syed Noor, which have started criticizing Sharmeen already. Some blame her for making Pakistan’s name get popular in the negative way, while others blame her for being another American funding! At this point I seriously wonder when Pakistanis will realize that one obstacle in this country’s success is lack of empathy for people and their sentiments. It is high time everyone should realize that it’s not about the Jhelum or some other river, it’s about the girl!

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
