With digital media platforms quickly taking over Pakistani media, Netflix is now rapidly acquiring local films for online streaming. After a selection of films became available on the website, Including Moor – which was selected as Pakistan’s selection for the Oscars, Netflix has now included the Shaan Shahid spy-thriller, O21 to its list. 

Released in 2014, the film delves into the Afghan-Pak relations and clashes and featured Shaan Ayub Khoso, Aamina Sheikh, Hameed Sheikh, Gohar Rasheed, and Bilal Ashraf in pivotal roles.

The director of the film, Jami, also took to Twitter to celebrate the film’s release on Netflix.

“After 3 years at last. Check out “O21” on Netflix,” he wrote.

Although O21 didn’t exactly do well at the box office, it did receive relatively positive remarks from the critics. One would thus hope the film’s online release will usher in some new fans for the director and his films.
