Documentary on Former President Musharraf Screened In Karachi

A documentary ‘Insha’Allah Democracy’ was screened at Karachi’s Capri Cinema last Sunday. What’s significant about the project is the fact that it is a documentary that revolves around the life and reign of General Retired Pervez Musharraf, so far the last dictator of Pakistan.

The film credits President Musharraf for heralding democracy in Pakistan in a satirical way, especially when it was fighting the War on Terror alongside the United States.

Mohammad Ali ‘Mo’ Naqvi said that he got the idea of the documentary way back in 2010 after which he conducted lots of interviews of known politicians including Pervez Musharraf, who was facing self-imposed exile in Dubai.

Mo further added that the documentary has its own essence as it provides the whole picture to the audience. Huffington Post labeled it a ‘Must See Documentary’ about the world current politics.

The Santiago Times termed it ‘Extraordinary Political Satire’ that connects the audience with the ongoing politics.

In an interview, Mo added, “The whole of the documentary took a total of 5 years to be completed as more and more I went into the film I get more of more info about the whole situation and then I realized the idea I have thought is more of hilarious than being a tragic one.”

It was the Goethe Institute that organized the screening of the documentary in collaboration with Documentary Association of Pakistan. Two short films – Ghungroo and Ganda Nala – were also previewed before the awaited documentary at the same venue.
