After an intriguing motion poster, the makers of Gul Makai, a film based on the life of Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai, have released its teaser. The gripping video begins with a voiceover by Kabir Bedi, “When God said Jihaad he meant the spirit of fighting all that is dark and benevolent. But the need and greed of some human beings changed that meaning into something else.” As the narration continues, shots of atrocities by the Taliban on the people of Pakistan and Afghanistan pulls one into the fascinating story. Later, we even hear Malalas mother explaining the significance of her name Malala to the young girl which makes for another interesting tale.

The official synopsis of Gul Makai reads, “When Taliban took over heavenly Swat, Pakistan, and turned their lives into hell. They destroyed schools and terrorized people with multiple conservative rules. And then an 11years old girl stood up and started blogging in BBC Urdu, explaining their pain and struggle under Taliban rule and fearlessly make the world aware about the truth of terrorism suffocating their country slowly. She used Gul Makai as her pen name.”
