-- A documentary made on the subject of dance in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is rare to find but has created a bit of hype as dance, entertainment and religion do not go hand in hand. The documentary film, “I Shall Dance,” is a story about a young man who takes dance as his profession and answers all those questions about how dance as a profession should be allowed in Pakistan. The story made on the subject of dance is of interest due to the fact that in certain areas in Pakistan it is a taboo to be involved with any such activities.
“I Shall Dance,” shows the success of the dancer, Changezi and gives the viewer a sort of a happy ending and shows the success of a man surviving all the negativity he got for choosing his passion.
Accoring to Sonia Ahmed, "Pakistan is a country where the youth want to open up and “I Shall Dance,” is a movie that proves it! Isolated if one does not follow the so-called norms in the society, the documentary feature “I Shall Dance,” shows that no matter what the religious or cultural norms are, if one wants to follow his/her dreams then it shall be! This film will inspire a lot of Pakistanis around the world, as well as many other people who are always not able to do what they want in life! I hold this film close to my heart as even I when through the same process in life!"
