The Mahira Khan and Fahad Mustafa starrer action-packed flick is all set to release on Eid-ul Adha.
2022 seems to be a great year for the Pakistani cinemagoers for all the right reasons! The film industry is slowly but surely reviving with lots of fantastic assortment of movie releases this year. Saba Qamar starrer Kamli, Amar Khan, Imran Ashraf starrer Dum MAstam, and Saba Qamar starrer Ghabrana NAhi Hai have all given us great hopes for this year. After a long wait of almost two years, finally, the first trailer of Quaid-E-Azam Zindabad has been released and needless to say, it has garnered praise from the masses. The famous trio Nabeel Qureshi- Fizza Ali Mirza 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.
From the makers of successful movies like Actor In Law, Na Maloom Afraad 1 and 2, Load Wedding, and Khel Khel Mein, it is going to be Filmwala Productions’ fifth movie, and that too under the very methodical director Nabeel Qureshi. Nabeel Qureshi is one director who successfully portrays the flaws in our society but doesn’t overwhelm the audience and weaves a love story to keep the audience hooked. The Steller cast also includes Javed Sheikh, Qavi Khan, Asad Ali Paleijo, Saleem Mairaj, and Nayyar Saleem in prominent roles in the movie.
From the trailer, it looks like the movie is an action-packed with tarka of romance and all that jazz with a storyline based on a cop played by Fahad Mustafa (Channeling his inner Bajirao Singham) fighting the corrupt system. Mahira Khan, on the other hand, is doing zara hat role and portraying a rather feisty and adventurous lady as opposed to the damsel in distress roles she very often projects. The action scene with pepper spray in her hand has surely captured our attention.
The two-and-a-half-minute long video begins with it raining money in the streets and notes being printed rapidly in bulk as the narrator asks, The only dialogue the audience hears is Mustafa saying,”Jaantey ho noton pey Quaid e Azam ki tasveer kyun hai, (Do you know why do notes have a picture of Quaid e Azam.” “Do you know why the notes have a photo of Quaid-e-Azam? It is so he can keep watch over us. And so, when we do something wrong, he is watching us.”
The trailer ends with a Nayyar Saleem in a role of a goon saying “Inki jaib garam kar, josh hum bhi thanda hojaiga [Bribe him, he’ll calm down],” to which he responds, “Beta main khata hoon, par lagata bhi hoon [I may take bribes but I also take it out],” as he hits one with a bat that shatters into pieces.
The public reaction to the trailer has been overwhelmingly positive and looks like the movie is going to break some massive box office records. Audiences have not just loved the trailer but compares it to Rohit Shetty action-packed movies and very Bollywood’sque.
