Watch Movie: Jinnah Released in 1998

A film based on the life of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the Partition of India in 1947.

Jinnah is a 1998 epic biographical film that follows the life of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Jamil Dehlavi directed it; and written by Akbar S. Ahmed and Jamil Dehlavi.

The film opens with the words of Professor Stanley Wolpert:

Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.

The film begins with the events surrounding the death of Jinnah. On 11 September 1948, the ailing Jinnah’s plane landed at Karachi Airport from Quetta where he was retreating at a higher altitude in Ziarat. Jinnah’s deteriorating health had led doctors to urge him to go to Karachi. On his way to Governor House Jinnah’s ambulance breaks down with engine failure, where fate leaves the dying Quaid of Pakistan in a state of confusion.
