Slackistan: Reality TV for a new audience?
"Islamabad, Pakistan. A group of privileged and westernised twenty-something friends while away their days and nights driving around town, partying, surfing the internet and smoking shisha pipes. As the country outside their world starts to crack, Hasan and his friends must face up to relationships, internal angst and life choices before it is too late."
So its basically a movie version of those American reality TV shows of rich youths hanging around....doing stuff.....BUT, this one is set in Pakistan. Therefore we can pass it off as cultured and meaningful.....
This is just like the Afghan version of pop idol that was made into a movie - Afghan Star
Next week: Reality TV cooking program in Turkmenistan
Finally, reality TV for us classy wankers
