Haseena Atom Bomb - Opening Scare

The movie apparently starts with this and was a super hit.

Read more about it here:

Musarrat Shaheen is the Atom Bomb of the title. The film is essentially a revenge drama where Shaheen sets out to wreak vengeance on the men who have gang raped her and killed her husband. The film was originally made in the Pushto language but was later dubbed into Punjabi and released all over Pakistan. According to critic Omar Khan, "the film is nothing less than a major work of art and its director immediately elevated to the ranks of John Waters and Russ Meyer, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Paul Naschy and other masters of gutter-trash-art. It is a breathtaking slice of the bizarre and the macabre as well as a searing socio-political indictment and commentary on a society gone haywire. Haseena Atom Bomb is one of the few great movies to have emanated from the subcontinent in many a decade and deserves to be admired by a much wider audience".
