Double2 Films released their first short documentary film about Sukkur which is the 14th largest city of Pakistan. The name of this informative and amazing documentary is “Sukkur – The City So Nice They Named It Twice“. That is because the name of Sukkur was formerly Aror and Bakhar. However, the word Sakhar in Sindhi means “superior”, which the spelling of the city’s name in Sindhi suggests is the origin of the name. Modern-day Sukkur was built by the British general Sir Charles Napier in the 1840s.
The documentary starts with a small introductory note on Sukkur followed by a famous tale of 6 beautiful sisters who used to live beside River Indus. The entire film is occupied by amazing scenery of some beautiful places in Sukkur. The documantary also covers some historical notes on Ayub and Lansdowne Bridges across the Indus river at Sukkur.
The last part of this short documentary covers Minaret of Masum Shah and Hindu Temple, Sadh Belo which is located along Indus River. The film also includes the taste of interior Sukkur.
