If you have not already, make your way to a theatre near you in order to catch director Bilal Lashari’s latest blockbuster, starring Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi.

The film recently reached a new milestone, amassing Rs1 billion globally in its first 10 days of screening. Critics are raving about the scale, cinematography, acting and direction, citing it is a groundbreaking piece of Pakistani cinema.

After a disagreement between distributors and cinema owners with screening in Pakistan, the movie is playing across theatres in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Multan.

'The Crown' (Season 5): Netflix

The popular (fictional) biopic about Queen Elizabeth II is all set to debut its explosive fifth season.

No doubt the late monarch’s platinum jubilee and recent passing has made audiences all the more curious about her life and reign — Netflix reported an 800% increase in viewership days following her passing, a report by The Guardian said last month.

The impending season, set to focus on the breakdown on Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage amongst other plot lines, has reportedly left the Royal Family nervous about its release, suggest reports in international media.

Oscar winning actress, Dame Judy Dench, a longtime pal of Queen Consort, Camilla Parker Bowles, recently penned an open letter to Netflix terming the show “cruelly unjust” and that Netflix should add a disclaimer reminding viewers that it is a fictional work, based on real events.

Netflix did just that, a few days ago, and we cannot wait to see what the fuss is all about.

The new season debuts November 9.

'FIFA Uncovered': Netflix

Set to debut just days before the World Cup in Qatar, the docu-series looking into the power struggles and politics of the football organisation.

Ken Bensinger, a New York Times reporter who wrote a book on FIFA corruption, said on Twitter that he has been working with the upcoming documentary, which he promised would have "amazing access and big revelations," he was quoted as saying by USA Today.

The series debuts November 9.
