Our cinema industry is paralyzed due to lack of original scripts, rise of plagiarism and poor quality of production. When this type of situation prevails in cinema industry, one can understand the condition our cinemas would be in. No surprise then that the owner of cinemas are totally concentrating on foreign films and the Indian movies dominate the cityscape. Our producers, directors, writers should give due consideration to making a quality product so that our own films can be displayed in the cinemas of our cities. -AYESHA GHAFFAR AWAN, Lahore, via e-mail, August 6.
