Epic Story of Good and Evil and Exquisite Fashion Statements in The Legend of Maula Jatt

When I was about four years old, I still remember the voice that announced the death of Pakistani general Zia ul Haque in a plane crash on national television. General Zia Ul Hauqe, a Pakistani General with four stars, declared martial law in 1977 and held his position until his death in 1988.

Maula Jatt 1979:

The 1979 film Maula Jatt depicted Zia ul Haque’s Martial Law regime. The film’s producer cast Nori Natt as General Zia ul Haque and Maula as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. How true this story was, and how it also describes a bygone era.

Many of the political statements made by our political elite included phrases like “Nava ayaa ayein sohneya” and “Maulay noo Maula na Maray tay Maula Nahi Marda,” both from the classic movie Maula Jatt. It’s not just a political statement; these are national conversations that we’ve heard since we were children whenever we needed to fight someone to get him to lick the ground.

We the Punjabis:

Three words that would best describe us the Punjabis are: we are open, vibrant, and proud! We don’t usually take anything seriously, but when we do, we really go all out! In fact, we pujabis are loud in everything, whether it’s fighting for life or victory to enjoy.

Tribal Conflicts:

According to the information provided by Wikipedia, the primary tribes of West Punjab are the Jatts, Arains, Gujjars, Awans, and Rajputs. Additionally, these tribes have been engaged in conflict with one another for ages over matters of status, position, goods, territory, and women. So the old one or this latest movie of the legend of Maula Jatt is likewise the portrayal of battle of two clans of jatts and Nats.

The Legend of Maula Jatt

The plot of this movie centers on a young boy who is present when the antagonist of Nat Tribe kills his parents. Additionally, he was powerless and had been traumatized by the incident, which caused him fear, rage, and agony. Therefore, the main plot of this story is the young Maula’s quest for vengeance against the Nat tribe, where he encountered Nori Nat main member of the Nat tribe, a beastly-natured rebel.


Fawad Khan (The Young Maula), Hamza Ali Abbasi (Nori Nat), Mahira Khan (Mukho, Maula’s beloved), Humaima Malik (Daro, Nori Nat’s sister), Moda (Faris Shafi), Maula’s cohort who never gives up on him, and Gohar Rasheed Makhhah (the younger son of the Nat clan) are just a few of the many characters we see in this beautiful movie.

As a writer, I have a lot to say about this movie. However, as one of the owners, blogger and fashionist at Hooraindesignerwear.com uk, my sole purpose is to highlight the film’s fashion scene only.

If its Costumes, The Legend of Maula Jatt is a Master Piece:

The Legend of Maula Jatt is an art piece with stunning hair, makeup and costumes, where Fahad Hussayn and Zara Shahjahan created costumes that were hand-hemmed and minimally stitched, giving them the rough, unprocessed appearance of the 1600s Punjab. In contrast to the typical use of draped cloth, the costumes were designed with or without stitching were beautiful.

Fawad Khan:

In 2001, a sitcom titled “Jutt and Bond” premiered on national television. Nobody at the time had any idea that this “Jutt and Bond” character would return to the 200 crore “legend of Maula Jatt” saga to commemorate Maula Jatt’s stunning performance with a rugged yet attractive appearance. He was particularly filthy because he was a street combatant with few resources.

Hamza Ali Abasi:

Whereas, Pyarey Afzal boy Hamza Ali Abasi, a romantic hero who appears in the film as a violent and bull-headed villain, also marked the extraordinary performances that shake the hero and villain world of characters for the first time.

The Legend of Maula Jatt Costumes:

Muala and Nori wears khaddar or cotton kurtas in a variety of colours as well as plain, rough-colour dhotis (Lachas) in traditional colours with blended stripes of the colour bands. I being the style expert love the string work on the stitches, which are sewn so delightfully to give the kurtas a round shape with strings of various varieties. Particularly the blue khaddar kurta that Fawad Khan was wearing when Mahira brought her food while he was lying on the cart. That beautiful kurta had white thread boldly hemmed the edges to give it a rough and tough appearance.

Hamza Ali Abasi wore a black chadder with white thread bold hemming when he was released from jail. The combination of thread work and the fabrics used was breathtakingly beautiful and gave the manly looks with wigs and beards, which was really a fashion statement made by the designers on the sets.

To play with black for Nats and demonstrate the distinction in status between tribes through elaborate costumes. For instance, the prisoners’ armbands and the taweez dori on Gohar Rasheed’s arms to demonstrate that he was the worst of them all were breathtaking.

Bilal Lashari

If we talk about the character crew, Bilal Lashari, who was the ringmaster of the entire unit, was responsible for both Nori and Fawad’s beautiful portrayals of their Punjabi costumes and characters and I can’t even begin to express how much I admired him as a producer and director, as well as the characters of the film who played beautifully.

Mahira Khan:

The Raees Girl Mahira is stunningly beautiful in The Legend of Maula Jatt bt wearing plain Pakistani dresses of red, pink, or mustard made of khaddar or makhmal fabrics. She wears a wrapped dhoti with hanging side paranda tassels, which are a traditional design element in vintage dhoti or women lacha dresses in Punjabi culture. These are beautifully made with threads and fabric to allure the elegance of the women who wear them. Mahira beautifully conveyed the fitted shirts and dhotis and molded in braided hair and curled hairs.

Humaima Malik:

In contrast, the Bol movie superstar Humaima Malik is depicted as a vicious and tough woman in The Legend of Maula Jatt who dresses extravagantly in silk and satin with printed motifs and jacquard fabrics to represent the highest tribal status. Humaima’s ensembles are perfectly planned with revealed shoulder pullovers and shirts in khaddar and silk and were amazingly beautiful and somewhat goth character depictions.

When people applauded her negative character or her cinematic magic, her performance received a standing ovation and it was the makeup as well so we thanks to Kajal for her eyes and her pitch-black hair with visible veins which distinguished her character from the crowd in this manly, dominant Lifetime movie.

Punjabis as Nation of Pride.

“People in Punjab wear very bright, vibrant colours, to me; it shows a sense of pride and confidence.”

Mark Hartman, (a photographer based in Brooklyn and he said)

However, I would say that Punjabis, regardless of where they live, are vivacious, energetic, and self-assured in every aspect of our lives—not just in these films, but also in real life. As a result, the Legend of Maula Jatt has received significantly more attention to detail than typical films. In every way, the effort is evident and stunning.

The legend of Maula Jatt gives us a sense of belonging to one another and this beautiful land with a heartfelt fragrance in these difficult times for the nation. We were all in need of good family entertainment to relax our nerves during these difficult times.

Pakistani Film Industry Revival:

The Pakistani film industry has advanced to new heights thanks to The Legend of Maula Jatt, which demonstrates that the craft is on par with international standards. We are so pleased with the team as a whole.

Good Luck with the Business.
