Peshawar hall screening porn films in Pashto

Peshawar, Dec 19 (ANI): A theatre in Peshawar has started screening pornographic movies in Pashto, also called ‘barband’, in addition to adult English-language ones.

At the Shama Cinema in Peshawar, every show is a house full. Four shows run every day. For early risers, there is the 11am screening.

This is followed by shows at 3pm, 6pm and 9pm. The films are promoted through racy, raunchy posters pasted on the walls of Peshawar, often side-by-side with graffiti from religious groups, the Express Tribune reported.

The cinema-goers have asserted that the sound and camerawork is often of the highest quality.

A cinema manager, who also asked not to be identified, said that the movies are not cheap and cost about five to six hundred thousand rupees to make, though the returns are very high.

According to an employee at the cinema who, perhaps fearing his mother’s reaction, did not want his name publicised, the Pushto adult movies are proving a bigger hit than English ones.

He also revealed that drug-taking is an integral part of the experience; a haze of hashish smoke floats above the seats instead of more standard sensory accompaniments to the cinema experience, such as the crunch of popcorn.

For those with an image of Peshawar and its environs as a medieval-minded war-zone, the Shama Cinema hardly sounds believable. It is the same region where girls schools and shrines are smashed, yet neither the religious parties nor the government have objected to porn being screened. (ANI)
