Maula Jatt

1979 film

Maula Jatt (Punjabi: مولا جٹ) is one of the most popular movies in the history of Pakistani cinema.[source?] It is a Punjabi movie starring actor Sultan Rahi in the lead role and with Aseia and Mustafa Qureshi as the villain Noori Nuth.

Maula Jutt was a classic, a movie that scored heavily and reached cult status both in Pakistan and the Republic of India. Such was the impact of the movie that it was copied by movie makers in India and also in Pakistan where several movies with the suffix "Jatt" were made. However, no copy of this movie could ever hope to match the outstanding dialogues in the movie and the chemistry between Sultan Rahi and Mustafa Qureshi.

This movie belongs to a different genre and represents a culture which is so much part of the rural Punjab (Pakistan).
