Geo Films' first animated film “The Donkey King” (TDK) has broken all box office records of animated films on the first day of its release.
Written, directed and co-produced by Aziz Jindani, the film is equally popular among the young and the old.
The film's premiere was held in Karachi on Friday and it was later released for public screening on Saturday.
With a grand opening of Rs13.5 million on Sunday, the film has raked in Rs30 million in the opening week.
The blockbuster movie revolves around entertainment, politics, and entertainment. More than 10 million hits on The Donkey King's track, trailer, and teasers on Facebook and YouTube speak of its reception on the internet.
The film's brisk pace together with top-notch visuals and voiceover quality makes it a treat to watch for all ages. The catchy title track 'Donkey Raja' and dialogue 'My name is Mangu Mangu Jan Mangu — the washing machine' has caught the attention of children.
What makes The Donkey King unique is its relatable storyline and interesting characters. The tongue and cheek dialogues only add to the film's overall entertainment value.
The film's stellar cast includes renowned actors such as Afzal Khan (aka Jan Rambo) who was brilliant as the lead character Mangu. It was a treat to hear top actress Hina Dilpazeer's voice playing Miss Fitna and the legendary Ghulam Mohiuddin as Badshah Khan.
While the colourful setting and catchy music will leave the kids under Mangu's spell, the mature audience is also set to enjoy the hidden meaning behind politically-charged dialogues and characters.
