  4. This is superb work done.this type of actual work needs to be done in media and it projection.i stongly believe this will make a difference and impact on masses.Good job done.

  5. Excellent. A beautifully done documentary, captures Karachi at its best and worst. Is most realistica and shows the caring and compassion for our city. It needs to be aired all over our country especially to be shown to the lawmakers and givers so that they may do something. These kind of documentaries must be aired, in schools, colleges, universitiies, everywhere, all over the place so that our citizens may become aware of the danger that we are posing to our own selves.

  6. I feel sickened by the rampaging greed machine that is trashing Karachi in the name of progress and development. This docu is excellent. The bit about the brazen Emaar project didn’t – as far as I understood – touch on the fact that its practically made the desalination plant a bit further down the shoreline defunct due to altering the silting patterns of the beach. One step forward, ten steps back… it feels hopeless
