Pakistani cinemas would be screening the first-ever Turkish film on March 13. The film dubbed as Koğuştaki Mucize, which means Miracle in Cell No 7 in English. The film is expected to fill the gap created by the ban on Bollywood productions via the imports from nations like Turkey.
Ejaz Kamran, the Chairman Pakistan Film Distributors Associations is of the belief that the screening of such films is significant for the survival of the Pakistani cinemas in the long run.
He told to local media that they have been asking for such developments that are important for the survival of their local film industry for some time. He also said that he thinks the release of the Turkish film is a positive measure which needs to be assisted by the viewers as well.
He further added that he is anticipating that the film would do good business which could make the way for the launch of the films from other nations which includes Iran and China.
The film Miracle in Cell No.7 would be launched under the head of HKC Entertainment. The distribution firm has plans for screening the film in 45 cinema houses.
Miracle in Cell No.7 is the Turkish remake of a Korean movie by the same name that was launched in the month of October in 2019. The story is about the bond between a mentally unfit person and his daughter.
The film’s premiere was held last week at a venue in Karachi.
