Sarmad Khoosat’s newest film, Zindagi Tamasha, was supposed to be released in cinemas across Pakistan on January 24th. The trailer certainly did a good job in arousing the curiosity of moviegoers with its air of mystery and a rather unique theme. Everything seemed to be going according to schedule after the Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) approved the film for a cinematic release. That was until after the release of the trailer, the film was met with backlash by religious groups.

Khadim Hussain Rizvi, the leader of TLP, headed the opposition against Zindagi Tamasha by publicly stating that he will not let the film get released in any case whatsoever. On January 28th, a 4-member committee was formed by the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) to review the film; consisting of prominent TLP members. The film’s release was postponed by the federal government; with a screening being requested on February 3rd to review the film for objectionable content once again.

The fate of Zindagi Tamasha has become an important part in understanding where artistic freedom is headed in Pakistan. Several celebrities have announced their support for Sarmad Khoosat. However, as of today, the review of the movie has still not taken place. Sadly, it seems that Zindagi Tamasha is a treat that will elude the Pakistani public; becoming a faded memory in cinematic history.
