Choorian is a 1963 black and white Pakistani Punjabi language super-hit musical film.[1][2]

It was the first Pakistani film to be given the "only for adults" rating by the censors. The film, when seen from today's standards, would seem quite "clean" to most audiences. But at the time, wearing body-baring dresses was taboo in Pakistan.[3]

Actress Nasira , the famous Pakistani "vamp", wore dresses that exposed more than what was permissible at that time.
