Almost 20 Pakistani Movies Lined Up For The Release

Quality is once again expected to make a comeback to the Pakistani cinemas as there are numerous commercial and feature films lined up for release in the near future that are certainly expected to create ripples in almost dead waters of the Pakistani film industry.
Earlier this year, we saw the release of two films that attracted quite a lot of audience despite their low budget and unknown faces.‘Siyaah‘ was a horror movie and ‘Chambaili‘ was based on the socio-political issues that our nation faces.
Then there has been another movie by the name of Seedlings which is making waves internationally and its lead actress Aamina Sheikh has bagged some very prestigious awards for this movie. It is expected to release soon in Pakistan with an Urdu title of ‘Lamha’.
There are two more movies by the name of ‘Kolachi‘ and ‘Rafina‘ directed by Mansoor Mujahid and Sabiha Sumar respectively. These 2 movies are also expected to hit the cinemas very soon but as of now their release date is still unknown.
Out of all these under-production movies, the most anticipated movie is ‘Ajnabee Shehr Mein’ that has been directed by Saqib Malik. This movie is under-production for a long time but is certainly expected to be a huge thing if it actually gets released. Saqib Malik has been in the film making industry for a long time and has given us some brilliant music videos in the form of Fuzon’s blockbuster Khamaaj, Ali Azmat’s Na Re Na and Ali Zafar’s Dekha, just to name a few.
Waar - One of The Pakistani Movies to Release This YearThe real fun begins here as we move to films that are most expected to release on this Eid. And we are expecting the release of at least 4 heavy-duty films on this Eid.
The top most release on this Eid will be that of ‘Waar‘ which is one of the most awaited movie in the recent times after its trailer got released one and a half year back.
Then there is another movie by the name of ‘Main Hoon Shahid Afridi‘ that is directed by Ali Raza and is produced by veteran TV actor Humayun Saeed. The film that will be based on the life time of cricketing star Shahid Afridi is all set for a release on this Eid.
‘Zinda Bhaag‘ and ‘Josh‘ are two other movies that will be hopefully releasing on this Eid.
Manto - One of The Pakistani Movies to Release This YearIn the latter half of this year, ‘Tamanna‘, ‘Kaptaan‘, ‘Manto’, and ‘Gol Chakkar‘ are expected to see the light of the day although their release dates are still not confirmed. But they too have the significance of their own due to some very talented people on board. Kaptaan will be based on the life story of cricketer-turned-philanthropist-turned-politician Imran Khan and is expected to attract a lot of audience. Then there is ‘Manto’ which has been directed by the talented director Sarmad Sultan Khoosat who also directed the ground breaking Humsafar. The shooting of the film has completed and is currently in the editing phase. Also interestingly the role of Manto will be played by the ace director himself.
Gol Chakkar is also one long time awaited movie that will be directed by a real life couple,Shahbaz Shigri and the elegant Aisha Linnea who started her career as a model.
‘The Extortionist’ is another movie that has got some super brains behind it. It will be directed by Summer Nicks and will be produced under the banner of newly launched One Motion Pictures that is owned by Zeba Bakhtiar and her son Azaan Sami Khan.
Jami is also said to have started couple of films. Yes, its Jami who has made some breathtaking videos over the period of time, specially his association with Strings has been remarkable. ‘Morqaye’ and ‘Downward Dog’ are two movies that he is said to have been working on for a long time and insiders claims that his projects will surely take many people by surprise because of its magnitude.
The following are the sneak peek of ‘The Extortionist’ and ‘Morqaye’. (Thanks One Motion Pictures)

And last but not the least, Shoaib Mansoor, the saviour of Pakistani cinema for past one decade is also expected to be working on a new script. Although there has been no confirmation about this but it’s been 2 years since Bol got released so fans are expecting him to come up with something new.
With almost 20 Pakistani movies lined up for the release, the future of Pakistani film industry looks bright in the hands of youngsters who are determined to bring back the quality to the local cinema in a style.

Trailer review: Pakistani film ‘Zinda Bhaag’ (Dawn News)

ZINDA BHAAG - starring Amna Ilyas, Khurram Patras, Salman Ahmad Khan, Zohaib and Naseerudin Shah, seems like a fast-paced, explosive and entertaining Pakistani film, both comical and serious in certain areas – at least what can be deduced from the trailer.

Written and directed by Meenu Gaur and Farjad Nabi and produced by Mazhar Zaidi, the trailer cut is well edited (and hopefully so is the film itself), starting with shots of Lahore and then the introduction to the film’s characters – overall high-quality cinematography. The plot in two short sentences: Three young people in Lahore try to escape the reality of their everyday lives. They succeed in ways they least expected.

The addition of the local music touch adds to the over all flavour, and although some of the visual effects give the impression of being down right tacky, they will probably make the film enjoyable when fused in with all the drama and action going on in the actual feature length film.

The trailer reveals that the film is in both Punjabi and Urdu, which might be a disappointment for those who have a hard time understanding the languages, unless the film is subtitled too.

Some humorous dialogue by Amna Ilyas from the trailer in the midst of all that is going on: “Pata hai computer kay mouse par bathroom say bhee ziyadaa jaraseem hotay hain…to be exact, chaar hazaar saat saw peyntaalees.” And then again: “Main aap ko rasgulleh kee mithaas say ziyadaa, imlee ki khataas say ziyadaa, Pakistan main corruption say ziyadaa pyaar karti hoon.”

During the latter half of the trailer Naseerudin Shah’s character is revealed, who according to an article was in Lahore in the month of March last year to shoot his sequences.

The storyline according to IMDB: What makes a man step into a cargo container that is going to be sealed for days? Why does he step into a flimsy overloaded boat to face a stormy sea? Or dart across international borders dodging bullets? What are the compulsions faced by men in Pakistan, which make them take extreme risks to chase a mirage of a secure future in alien lands? Set against the backdrop of the world of illegal immigration, Zinda Bhaag is a film about three young men trying to escape the reality of their everyday lives ... and succeeding in ways they had least expected. In a nondescript neighbourhood of Lahore, three friends are desperate to get on to the fast track to success. Khaldi, Taambi and Chitta, all in their early twenties, believe that the only way out ... is to the West. The journey that unfolds through the story of this film gives us a peep into what constitutes the everyday in the lives of many young men and women in Pakistan - a sense of entitlement that cannot be fulfilled.

The film will be released this August.
