Movie Info

A roller coaster of emotions, yet carrying subtleties that make your heartbeat stop. Based in the heart of Lahore, the story takes place in a house full of daughters, with vibrancy of life, yet restrictions on blooming. It questions the worth of a human being, may it be a woman or a person born with a birth defect. It questions the authority of reproducing human beings into this world without taking responsibility of acknowledging their worth.

Audience Reviews for Bol


Bol is too difficult to watch at times and also too predictable, but it is such a realistic, important and even urgent film that is such a great plea for tolerance and human rights. It is not only superbly acted, but also so well constructed and paced with its very long running time never being felt as it is such a consistently engaging and hard-hitting film. Its importance is evident, its emotion is overwhelming and its power is apparent leading to one of the most underrated foreign films in recent memory.

This is a brilliant movie with real life issues that plague our nation every single day. I hope that people walk away with the real and true message of the movie. brilliant!!!!

Pakistani movie "Bol" is a MUST watch. Simply awesome cast and a spine-chilling story of how transgenders and women are disrespected and tortured in the Indian sub-continent. Loved all the performances.
