Gunahon Ka Sheher is a 2006 Pakistani Urdu film, directed by Pashto film director Saeed Ali Khan.



The story of Aik Gunahoon Ka Shehr revolves round a young man (Ahmed Butt) fascinated by city life and the thrills it has to offer. Once there, unemployment eventually leads him to join a gang of blackmailers involved in sex crimes, in turn leading to his ruin.


When the team of Aik Gunahoon Ka Shehr approached the Pakistan Film Censor Board for a clearance certificate, objection was raised over the phrase Gunahoon Ka Shehr. Later the name was modified to Aik Gunahoon Ka Shehr. What exactly they aimed to achieve by this is still a mystery.

Secondly, the members of the respected censor board charged that the film has more than a healthy dose of steamy scenes and dialogues. Consequently, the film appeared before a full board who chopped off several scenes and dialogues which they considered ‘unnecessary’ and ‘irrelevant’, leaving no option but for the poor producer to reshoot them. Understandably annoyed, producer Saeed Iqbal presented his stand before the censor board members, explaining that the story of the film depicts the true picture of youth today who indulge in sex and crime.

“The objection was unfair because already a number of Pakistani, Indian and English movies with sexual content are being exhibited at cinemas and cable networks throughout the country,” he said. He further confessed that it is not a family film. “Who likes to watch a family film in our dingy cinema houses? This is an era of love, romance, sex and action all packaged as one,” he explained.


The best part of the film is its music composed by Humaira Arshad and Awais Malik. Here viewers are hoping that the musicians signal healthy changes in film music, too. Saeed Ali Khan, the director called for Ahmed Butt originally, but then there was an easy access to his wife for the singing, she was more than happy to make her debut in Lollywood as a composer.
