The trailer that has already been released shows a promising narrative and looks like a tug of war between good and evil. Produced by Hassan Zia and Jameel Baig, Ghabrana Nahi Hai is jam-packed with action, romance, drama, and lots of glamour.
Mahira Khan And Fahad Mustafa Starrer Quaid E Azam Zindabad
The famous duo Nabeel Qureshi and Fahad Mustafa are yet again coming together to give us a light-hearted entertainer this year. Mahira Khan has been roped in to play the female lead and we must say she looks uber chic in the trailer. Very little has been revealed about the movie plot but one can expect lots of action intermingled with a social issue (remember Load wedding and Na Maloom Afraad). Quaid E Zindabad releases in cinemas on Eid-Ul-Azha 2022 and we can’t wait to watch it on big screens.
Javed Iqbal: The Untold Story Of A Serial Killer
Starring Yasir Hussain as the protagonist and Ayesha Omer as a cop in the lead roles, Javed Iqbal is a highly awaited movie. Outside of the usual genre that we see in Pakistani movies, the movie is based on the true story of serial killer Javed Iqbal who went on to ruthlessly murder 100 children. The movie is all set to release on 28th January 2022 near your cinemas.
Dum Mastam: Debuting Imran Ashraf And Amar Khan
With Dum Mastam, actor Adnan Siddiqi is venturing into production and will be his debut as a producer. Starring Imran Ashraf and Amar in lead roles, it will be their debut in movies as well which is all the more exciting. Amar Khan has also penned the story for the movie. Dum Mastam is a story of love, fun-filled romance with a generous dose of music, as per Adnan Siddiqi’s Insta post. The movie has finally gotten a tentative release date for Eid ul Fitr 2022.
Ishrat Made In China: Action-Packed Comedy Starring Mohib Mirza
Anyone remembers the cult favourite series Ishrat Baji played by Mohib Mirza? Well if you do, here is a surprise for you. A spin-off from the same character, Mohib Mirza alongside Sanam Saeed is all set to hit big screens real soon. Making his directorial debut as well, Mohib Mirza starrer movie is a fast-paced, dramatic, action movie that has its fair share of romance as well.
Sarmad Khoosat’s Zindagi Tamasha
The movie has been facing setbacks since its beginnings due to various religious and political reasons. But finally, the movie will be released in theatres on March 18, 2022. According to the film’s description on YouTube, Zindagi Tamasha is “an intimate portrait of a family as well as a scorching political commentary on the little gods on this earth who police private passions.” BTW the movie has been getting recognition on international platforms and won many awards globally.
From the trailer, the story revolves around a devout whose life goes upside down when his video of dancing at a wedding goes viral. Hoping for a peaceful release for the epic yet a very sensitive movie.
Parde Main Rahne Do
From the trailer, it feels that Hania Aamir and Ali Rahman’s starrer “Parde Main Rahne do” is going to be a complete masala-packed entertainer. Saying it because the teaser itself gave all kinds of eerie, bizarre, funny, and eccentric feelings. “Parde Mein Rehne Do” will be touching a social stigma but other than that it’s challenging to make much of the teaser released. The trailer is getting mixed responses from fans all over the world.
