Four Pakistani movies I am waiting for in 2015

Growing up in late 90’s and early 00’s cinema wasn’t an everyday concept for me. So finally when a Pakistani movie ‘Khuda key liye’ released it was a big thing for me to go the cinema and watch it. A slow and steady stream of movies for the mainstream cinema in Pakistan started to release. However no other genre was being explored in the revived new movies coming up while we continued to excel almost every genre in drama industry. Finally sitting in 2015 I can say that Pakistani cinema is ready to move out of it’s comfort zone and has/is going to release movies out of the dark genre. Na Maloom Afrad can be a classic example of it.

Four Pakistani movies that I really am looking forward watch this year are

Karachi sey Lahore

Release Date: 31st July 2015

Lead Cast: Javed Sheikh, Rashid Naaz, Ayesha Omer, Eshita Syed, Shehzad Sheikh and Yasir Hussain.

Why am I looking forward to watch this movie?

I absolutely love road trip movies. Karachi sey Lahore is the first of its kind of movie from Pakistan which will cover a 36 hours journey from Karachi to Lahore as title suggests. The movie also will cover the different ethnicities of Pakistan i.e. Punjabi, Sindhi, Pushtoon and Balochi to give the story a very cultural and local touch.

I really do hope the humor of the movie is not over done via the actors.

Ho Mann Jahan

Release Date: Eid-ul-Adha

Lead Cast: Mahira Khan, Sheheryar Munawar and Adeel Hussain

Why am I looking forward to watch this movie?

The movie is about 3 friends belonging from different social backgrounds but sharing the same passion for music. It is refreshing to see a very upbeat and lively movie coming to theaters to attract younger set of audience as well. Mahira Khan’s hip look in the movie defiantly will be a trend setter when the movie will be released.

3 Bahdur

Release Date: 22nd May 2015

Lead Cast: Amna, Saadi and Kamil (The characters ;))

Why am I looking forward to watch this movie?

First and foremost this is going to be a Pakistani animated movie and second the creative director of the movie is none other than our Oscar winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy. The story revolves around 3 friends set in a fictional town ‘Roshan Basti’ who would save their community from the evils of society.

The soundtrack of the movie in its trailer sounds good. 

Let’s see if this movie will be able to pull off in Pakistan or not.

Bin Roye

Release Date: 18th July 2015

Lead Cast: Mahira Khan, Humayun Saeed, Armeena Rana Khan, Zeba Bakhtiar, Javed Sheikh and Hamza Ali Abbasi.

Why am I looking forward to watch this movie?

Pakistan has truly excelled in dramas specifically in drama/romance genre and now it is turn of the film industry to take over this genre as well. The trailer of Bin Roye guarantees a story full of emotions and I am sure Farhat Ishtiaq’s story would not disappoint us. I am also looking forward to see the art direction of the movie  as in trailer it looks brilliant.
