The first Dhaka based Urdu film Jago hua Savera won the gold medal in Moscow Film Festival. This film was made by a Lahore team with director A.J. Kardar (who was relative of Abdur Rasheed Kardar the first actor and director from Lahore). Screenplay and songs were penned by legendary poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz.


Ataur Rahman (Anis) was hero in this inaugural Dhaka based film. He became producer, director and music director in many Urdu movies from East Pakistan.

This film was filmed at Saitnol, on the banks of river Meghna, which is 30 miles south from Dhaka, then East Pakistan, now Bangladesh.

Film review

Insightful and impressive as a first feature film from Pakistan, Jago Hua Savera deals with the struggles of an impoverished family living in a fishing village. Director Asejay Kardar keeps the mood simple, serious, and straightforward as the family members are shown trying to get money to buy the boat they need. The hopelessness of their objective is graphically underscored by the conditions in which they live, and the self-interest of the local moneylender whose purpose in life is to increase his coffers rather than lend a helping hand. At times poetic and with scenes that ring true, director Kardar has done well with the resources at his disposal. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

Film business

It was a dead flop film on box office and was only released in Karachi's Jubilee cinema, where it lasted only three days or nine shows. But this film won few International awards around the world, especially the gold medal in Moscow Film Festival. This film was recently (December 2007) released in a Continents Film Festival in France and it was discovered - not from Pakistan or Bangladesh - but from a film caller in London by festival administrator Mr. Jildo Filip.
