According to the resolution presented in Punjab Assembly, the custom of dowry is a un-Islamic and demanded strict action against those who ask for it.
The 2018-released film was revolving around the story about the load of dowry that families have to bear in Pakistan to wed their daughters and how a celebratory occasion leaves several families indebted for life. What a pity!
The film has earned high praises from esteemed critics for highlighting an important social issue.
