We could finally see the end of the controversy surrounding “The legend of Maula Jatt“, the excellent work of director Bilal Lashari which has been in the news since his announcement in 2014. While the unprecedented buzz is mainly due to its joint distribution – Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malick, as well as the fact that the film aims to have a new version (read contemporary) of the characters of the cult screen of Maula Jatt and Noori Natt, the hero and the antihero There have been other problems that affect ‘Maula Jatt’ since the first day.
On the one hand, Lashari and its producer, Ammara Hikmat, were involved in a constant struggle with the creators of Maula Jatt, the punjabi blockbuster of 1979, attributed to the popularization of the two characters mentioned in a considerable way. Although Maula, the angry young villager who wore blades and wore dhoti-kurta which could kill for the good of humanity, had previously been featured in a short story by Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi, entitled “ Gandasa ”, and adapted for the screened at least once before the screenwriter (then emerging) Nasir Adeeb, it was only at Maula Jatt that the theme and the characters of the film became very important. Decades later, when Lashari started working on the restart of Maula Jatt, with the biggest stars of the time and on an incredible budget, he made it possible for everyone to remotely join the initial interest. It was as if everyone wanted to share the cake.
Enter Sarwar Bhatti, the producer of the 1979 classic, who claimed the intellectual copyright of the characters, dialogues and story, etc. Lashari and Hikmat clarified that The Legend … was not a new version, so there was no doubt about the copyright infringement. It has become a horrible legal battle, ever since Bhatti filed a lawsuit. In October 2017, he received a suspension order, which was quickly quashed.

To their advantage, Lashari and Hikmat had already completed Adeeb to write the dialogues for their film. This helped them to defend by taking the most famous line from the original, “Maulay nu maula na maare teh maula nai mar da da“.
In a conversation with Local News Paper, Hikmat said that “the literary rights of [” Maula Jatt “] are with Adeeb, not Bhatti, who only owns the rights to the film.”
He also claimed that Bhatti “now demands a 50% reduction in film revenues”, as well as the right to distribute the film through his company [Bahoo Films]. Later, he also sent a legal notice of 500 million rupees to the children of Bhatti, Mohammad Bahoo Sarwar and Muttaqi Sarwar, for running a smear campaign on social media.
Last week, things got darker when Bhatti was accused of not being the sole owner of Bahoo Films Corporation, by lawyer Almas Jovindah, who spoke on behalf of Saim Jamil, the son of (deceased) Chaudhry Jamil . At a press conference, Jovindah made the surprising revelation that Bahu Films Corporation was “part of a partnership between six parties of which Chaudhry Jamil and Sarwar Bhatti were the main speculators”.
He also presented on this occasion legal documents, including the original act of the company signed in 1978, under which all the films produced under the banner belonged to the company and belonged to no one, as Sarwar Bhatti has it fraudulently described.
In the latest development, the Sindh High Court issued a suspension order against Bhatti and his children, “preventing them from defaming The Legend of Maula Jatt and its creators, Bilal Lashari and Ammara Hikmat”.
This is another victory for the creators. Meanwhile, the film to be released on Eid Al Fitr was postponed on an unspecified date.
