Lollywood Movie Releases for 2020 

Punjabi Film Industry of Pakistan

Pakistani movies have come a long way and are predicted to rule the Southasian subcontinent in the coming years. Why? Well what comes naturally to Pakistan is the language Urdu, and the Poetry that goes in the songs, as well as the whole nation is very blessed with beautiful looking people. However, most of the Pakistani actresses stay away from wearing outfits that are body-revealing. One must wonder why that is, even though Pakistan allows Hollywood movies, as well as the kissing scenes in those movies. Most of the time, the public claps at all the kissing scenes in the cinemas putting some families to shame! Pakistanis don’t mind watching other cultures in any way or form, but when it comes to a Pakistani woman, they want her to be as clean as ever in her choice of roles.  

Pakistan being a Muslim country, was closed to all entertainment between the years 1979-2004, unit the President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf allowed media and entertainment to run freely. That began the beginning of

Pakistan’s Dramas, Series, Telefilms and Commercials! Even though the Pakistani Punjabi Film Industry was alive but the films were not the best of the lot and hence the public wanted more than just Punjabi Films. Around 2009 onwards, talks began for the Urdu Film Cinema. 

Urdu Film Industry of Pakistan

Shakily, the Urdu Film Industry began in Pakistan with just 1-2 releases per year to over 20 releases in Urdu every year. However, the Punjabi Film Industry slowed down completely as the Punjabi actors started filling in the roles of the Urdu Film Industry demands. As a few years later saw the Lahore-based actors settle down in Karachi where the drama industry and film industry were newly based, whereas the music industry is still active and alive in Lahore, Pakistan. One thing to point out here is that the Pashto Film Industry does well every year as it caters to the Province of Pakhtoonkhwa as well as Afghanistan. It is the only Pakhtoon Industy surviving for the Pashto speaking crowds.  

2020 is a scary year for most industries around the world, but Pakistanis are not backing off. Every week, there is a new announcement of projects and the drama industry is doing so well, that the finales of the dramas are not trending to be watched in theatres. Below are the releases for the year 2020. Let’s see what happens in the coming months!
