Moor movie will be Pakistan’s entry for Oscars 2016

After Sharmeen Obaid Chennai opening the gate way to Oscar Academy Awards, our film selection Committee is really gritty that another Oscar will surely knock the door if we will keep on selecting & promoting our local movies on global level. Selecting ‘’Zinda Bhaag’’ in 2013, ‘’Dukhtar’’ in 2014, The Pakistani Academy Selection Committee has decided to select MOOR to be submitted for Oscar deliberation under the ‘Foreign Language Film Award’ category at the 88th Academy Awards.

Moor movie that took our heart away was selected by after a complete process through a secret polling and turned out to be the extraordinary piece for the committee members. The movie selected by Pakistani Academy selection committee, according to the norms & standard of Academy will undergo a complete procedure of film selection screening, shortlisting and voting with official Oscar nominees publicized at a far ahead date.


The final nominations for all categories for the Grand event will be declared later by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by 08th January 2016. The ample and ultimate list will be stated on 14th January 2016 with the demonstration show for the 88th Academy Awards slated to take place on 28th February 2016. For your snowballing knowledge, last year a record number of 83 films got succumbed for Oscar in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 87th Academy Awards.

Moor [pronounced: More, meaning Mother] is a Pakistani Movie focused on the whys and wherefores of the declines stumbled upon by the Pakistan Railways and the life of the affected people of that debility. The exasperating story of Wahid, who is a railway station master at a small town in Balochistan, and his son Ehsaan who has migrated in a metropolitan city, Karachi delivers you some ill realities of Pakistan. The director of the movie Moor is Jami who’s a popular Pakistani director in the TV industry. It is a little complicated in first half but the second half of the movie clasps the attention.

Let’s hope that Moor movie makes us feel proud this year. Cheers…!!!
