The theatrical trailer of “Huey Tum Ajnabi” just released.
Well known journalist Kamran Shahid has turned filmmaker-writer with his first movie Huye Tum Ajnabi, a film on partition of Pakistan. Journalist Kamran Shahid just released the theatrical trailer of his movie Huey Tum Ajnabi and the movie looks quite promising. The cast of the film includes Sadia Khan and Mikaal Zulfikar in the lead roles. While rest of the cast includes big names like Samina Pirzada, Shafqat Cheema, Shamoon Abbasi, Adnan Jillani, Ayesha Omer, Mehmood Aslam and Sohail Aslam, Aly Khan and legendary Shahid whose also father of Kamran Shahid will play pivotal role in the movie.
According to the writer and director Kamran Shahid “Huye Tum Ajnabi” is about two people in love while the story is set in the backdrop of 1971 Fall Of Dhaka. Though the movie showcases major events of Fall Of Dhaka but the movie is apolitical and is purely a romantic period drama. The anchor person also claims that it is his independent and unbiased take on important political events of that era and he has shown political figures like Indira Gandhi Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in a dignified manner without hurting sentiments.
The trailer starts with a narrator talking about a love story that bloomed in University Of Dhaka between Zeenat (played by Sadia Khan) and Nizam Ud Din (Played by Mikaal Zulfikar) ends up in the War Of Dhaka.
Speaking to Geo news in an exclusive interview, the film’s director said, “Writing the script was very challenging for me.” He went on to add, “No one wanted to touch this subject in Pakistan as you know the topic is quite controversial. Even though it’s more of a romantic movie than a political one, people were not ready to get their hands on this genre so I decided to direct a movie on the 1971 war,” he continued. Kamran also noted that many local movies are either comedy or rom-coms and added, “it is very rare that you see filmmakers exploring other areas. Including romance in the 1971 war was very challenging for me,” he added. Kamran credited his interest in history to the idea of making Huey Tum Ajnabi. However, he further added, “People are the best judges, and they will decide about the future of the movie.”
