      Audience Member some brave musicians doing their best to keep their art alive. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review john m A nice exploration into another world where art is frowned upon and the passion that lies underneath. It's a pretty typical documentary but a very strong story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Alan Scherstuhl Village Voice The filmmakers wisely let the concert footage play at length, and they know to cut to what we want to see: the players themselves, amazed at the new sounds they're making. May 18, 2016 Full Review Clayton Dillard Slant Magazine The final note of optimism is consistent with the documentary's overall tone and interest in perseverance. Rated: 3/4 May 16, 2016 Full Review Linda Barnard Toronto Star The musicians have fascinating stories to tell, combining to give Song of Lahore its rich narrative. Their joy at exploring Times Square is a highlight. Rated: 3/4 Mar 3, 2016 Full Review Rob Thomas Madison Movie Like a Pakistani "Buena Vista Social Club," "Song of Lahore" pays tribute to some great, unsung musicians and their perseverance in tough times. Rated: 3/4 May 20, 2016 Full Review Chris Knight National Post A somewhat shaggy structure finds its footing in the film's second half. And the moment when we hear a sitar move seamlessly from an Eastern melody into the opening notes of Dave Brubeck's Take Five is one of pure symphonic bliss. Rated: 3/4 Mar 3, 2016 Full Review Glenn Sumi NOW Toronto The first third of the film is cluttered with too many people and lots of information without much to look at. But when East meets West in the concert hall and produces glorious music, none of that matters. Rated: 3/5 Mar 2, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
