Pakistani Upcoming Movie 2017 A huge number of Pakistani movies are being released this year in a wide variety of genres. The Pakistani film industry is truly becoming a force to be reckoned with! Here are three of the most anticipated movies being released this year.
Shoaib Mansoor is the man that started the Pakistani film revolution in the first place, and his upcoming film “Verna” is sure to wow audiences and open their minds up to social issues. Although the people involved in the film have been noticeably mum about the actual plot, one thing that’s for certain is that the film is all about woman empowerment, with the director himself stating that it is all about the importance of listening to women and thinking about the issues that affect women in Pakistan.
The film stars Mahira Khan in the actress’s second collaboration with Mansoor after her film debut in Bol. The male lead is Zarrar Khan who will be making his film debut after working in theater and TV for some time. Filming began in January in Islamabad, so you can expect to see some beautiful mountains and greenery which Shoaib Mansoor would capture with his gorgeous cinematography!
The movie is set to be released on the 25th of June this year, which is going to be Eid-ul-Fitr. Mansoor is known for making thought provoking films, and women empowerment has been a hot topic in Pakistan these days. It is likely that this film is going to set off some serious debate about the topic!
Lighthearted movies like this one are necessary for the growth of the film industry. This film comes from the sharp, witty mind of Mohsin Ali who is already quite well known for Wrong No. This movie features a star studded cast featuring the likes of Neelum Munir in her film debut, along with Sakina Samoo, Talat Hussain, Rehan Sheikh and Faizan Khawaja. Also notable is the late addition of Ahsan Khan who gained much acclaim for his dark, gritty performance in Udaari and is looking for a change of pace with the comedic Chupan Chupai.
Not much is known about the plot of the film except the fact that it is going to be energetic, exciting, action packed and hilarious. There were three different rewrites for the script so you know that the people involved have put a great deal of effort into making this film the best that it can be.
