You might want to make sure you're all alone when you watch this trailer because you'll definitely end up silencing anyone who's talking near you and an unnoticed lone tear might just fall from your eyes. Upcoming film - which has actually been in the making for a few years now - Rahm isn't something you haven't seen before. In fact, it's a painful reminder of what's going on around us - people go missing and are never seen again, cases go on for ages without any result, and lone women find it difficult to survive in this society.

The trailer doesn't tell us what exactly are Sanam Saeed and her brother fighting, but former's performance and dialogue delivery is enough to keep you hooked. After the opening scene, you might feel it's Kashaf Murtaza all over again, but as the trailer moves forward so does Saeed's acting.

Apart from her, another prominent mainstream actor was Sajid Hassan who seems to play a politician (or an authority figure) with conscience. The bad guy in Rahm is the police, judiciary, and a man with the beard who carries a tasbeeh (played by Sunil Shankar). This portrayal does seem to strengthen stereotypes and discriminate against a certain segment, but we can't be too sure unless we've seen the entire film.

An HKC Entertainment production and Ahmed Jamal's directorial venture, Rahm, will hit the cinema screens soon.

Earlier, reports suggested that Rahm is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's comedy Measure for Measure. The film's cast includes Sanam Saeed, Sunil Shanker, Sajid Hasan and Nayyar Ejaz in main roles, while the script is written by Mahmood Jamal, who is also the film's producer.

In the end, does the trailer convince us to watch the film? It does, because the acting and the story telling seem impressive, but if you want to relax and unwind then Rahm might just do the opposite.
