LAHORE Around 10 Bollywood movies including the blockbuster Singham have portrayed policemen as heroes whereas in Pakistani films the role of a policeman has always been featured in quite negative form, to further worsen the impact of police in the eyes of young generation. In Pakistan, filmmakers are depicting stereotype Pakistani policemen as corrupt, who are taunted by the public although sagacious, hard working and honest cops have laid their lives in the on-going war on terror. An Additional Inspector General of Police Punjab while talking to this scribe said the sacrifices rendered by the Pakistani police were much more as compared to the Indian police. We have laid down our hundreds of thousands of precious lives in war on terror whereas there is not a single example of Indian police but in movies the situation is reverse, he added. The Addl IGP said in Bollywood cops were portrayed as saviours of the systems and society. He went on to say that several Pakistani films as Humayun Gujjar, Maula Jutt, Chan Wariam, Dhe Rani, Buut Shikun, Puttar Shaiey Da and Gujjar Da Veair have presented the men fighting against the corrupt policemen and turned against the system. Quoting a statement of the US Ambassador Cameron Munter during his visit to explosion-hit CID building, the Addl IGP said he (Munter) admitted the sacrifices of the Pakistani police by saying the Pakistani Police are on the frontline and the fight against extremism and a tribute to their courage and sacrifice. Instead of presenting positive image of police and other law enforcement agencies, up to 90 per cent Lollywood movies are based on the same story, in which the hero mostly adopts illegal methods to get his rights, a filmmaker said adding the Censor Board was playing a criminal role in permitting screening of such movies. During a brief chat, CCPO Lahore Additional IG Malik Ahmed Raza Tahir said although the professional aptitude of Indian police was quite negative in real sense but the filmmakers were portraying soft image of their police, definitely in vast interest of their society. What they (Indian police) have achieved worth mentioning? Nothing You cannot imagine my feelings when I hand over the cap and uniform to the mother, who has lost her brave son during crossfire with hardened criminals or during any terrorists attack, the CCPO said. Four recent Bollywood movies including Garv, Dabang, Wanted and the last Singham have boosted up the police image of India. There are also a number of other Indian films starring leading actors as police officers including Amitabh Bachchan in Zanjeer, Shashi Kapoor in Deewar, Sanjeev Kumar in Sholay, Dilip Kumar in Shakti, Om Puri in Ardh Satya and Jackie Shroff in Khalnayak. The story of Singham movie revolves around a brave cop Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) and Jaikant Shikre, a big extortionist. On Singhams promotion to inspector, the Goa-based underworld don Jaikant Shikre got him transferred to Colva police station to extract his revenge but ultimately the don is gunned down by Singham. Owing to having positive impact of the police department, on September 11, 2011, around 900 Goa policemen along with Director General of Police Aditya Arya watched the action packed blockbuster Singham altogether and widely lauded the policemens role. Here in Pakistani movie, only in Jungle Ka Qanoon, policemen were presented as good human beings otherwise mostly police officials were portrayed as negative characters as the most of the movies were made on the lives of criminals. Director of a move Son of Pakistan Jarrar Rizvi, however, also presented police officers as heroes breaking that stereotype but the role cannot be compared with Indian movies.
