BBC film critic Haroon Rashid called it a ‘Shakespearean’ experience.
The Legend of Maula Jatt is spectacular. Brilliantly entertaining. It’s not often a film of this scale lives up to expectations. This one exceeds them. Cinematic, theatrical – almost Shakespearean. I want to watch it again. Terrific job all round! 👏🏽🔥🎉 pic.twitter.com/v8UEeVuz76

The Legend of Maula Jatt is an experience that takes you beyond anything you’ve ever witnessed in Pakistan before. It’s the kind of seeti baja, taali maar, paisa wasool film that’ll redefine Pakistani cinema. #TheLegendOfMaulaJatt
