This movie is not like any other Pakistani movie.
If you are going inside to watch a happy-romantic-comedy then this movie is not for you. If you are expecting songs and lots of dance and bhangra, this movie is not for you. But if you are expecting genuine acting, tight script and extraordinary direction, this movie is definitely for you. I went in and i was enthralled by how Asim Abbasi made this simple knitted script into a visual treat. I have to say that it was not the script but the direction that kept me hooked to my seat. Sanam Saeed and Aminah Sheikh give solid performances and successfully manage to showcase a nuanced love-hate relationship of siblings which Pakistani audience can largely relate to. Its the details in the movie that make you smile because those details are so unnoticed in our daily lives. The AC leak, the flushing the cigarette bud in toilet and your parents accidentally farting. I was very happy when they announced that they will be coming up with the Cake-Prologue. I dont get the hatred, this movie is amazing. But maybe Pakistani audience is going to take sometime grow out of typical cliched rom-com movies and start appreciating artistic direction and simple movies.
I think this film raises the bar for Pakistani cinema as it has introduced a new genre of film in Pakistan. You can compare it with any other international movie of the same genre. Acting and direction is superb. Background music is very good and placed according to the situation. Strongly recommended.
One Of The Best To Come Out of Pakistani Cinemas
Cake is definitely a must watch. It has all the right ingredients humor, drama, emotions. The plot is engaging, all the while remaining realistic, a feature that most of the past Pakistani movies lacked. It is a bit slow in the first half, but builds up nicely for the climax. The acting was top notch from the leads Aamina Shaikh and Sanam Saeed. The chemistry between them is excellent, and you still want more of them at the end. Adnan Malik also excels in his debut. The mother played by Beo Raana Zafar and father had a wonderful chemistry. Barring one or two scenes, the acting is very good for a family drama. There are almost no cringeworthy moments (a pattern common in previous movies). Asim Abbasi as a director in his first movie could teach the Pakistani veterans a thing or two. The plot isn't rushed at any point. The director takes his time for viewers to understand the characters and it looked though every scene was executed to perfection. Cinematography is excellent. This movie required good camerawork due to the many important scenes it had and it surely didn't disappoint. Music although not catchy looked in place.
very nicely executed and EXTREMELY WELL DIRECTED
Amazing acting and amazing direction.. Even better cinematography and script. This is not your average Bollywood or Lollywood movie.. it is for Mature Audience.
This movie is a testament to the fact that Pakistani cinema has made strides in the last few years. This movie was the complete package, everything was spot on (direction, acting, music). P.S. Allan Fakeer's - Tarrin Paunda song just adds to the pleasure of watching this movie.
