Over the years, Pakistani movies have improved a great deal and now, many of our directors are making films that are at par with movies created abroad. If you loved what our cinema had to offer this year, then you will be ecstatic to know what's in store for next year.
2017 has a lot of entertaining star-studded movies lined up, and we are sure these films will receive international recognition. Here are the five most awaited films of 2017.
Balu Mahi, has managed to create so much hype with just one teaser. Why, you ask? Because the movie is a visual treat, with spectacular cinematography and art direction. Pakistanis went as far as comparing the movie with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's films. Yes, that's how great the movie looks. The romantic-comedy set to release in February 2017, is directed by Haissam Hussain and produced by Sadia Jabbar. The movie features Osman Khalid Butt as Bilal "Balu", Ainy Jaffri as Mahi and Sadaf Kanwal as Sharmeen.
Chalay thay Saath
The teaser of the movie left us impressed not only because it was shot in the beautiful Hunza valley, but also because it stars the talented Syra Shehroz, Mansha Pasha and Zhalay Sarhadi. A romantic film, directed by Umer Adil, is one we are really looking forward to, because this movie might just be a shift from typical comic narratives that have come out lately.
Starring Gohar Rasheed, Bilal Ashraf and Urwa Hocane, the musical-romance is one of the most awaited movies of the year due to the popular star cast. Also, from all the statements given by the cast, it seems all the actors have been given some unique roles, hence we are more than eager to find out what the director has cooked up with Rangreza.
Rehbra too, has a great star cast including Ayesha Omar and Ahsan Khan. And the fact is, after Udaari, we all look forward to any project Ahsan is a part of. As shared by Ahsan, the movie that is set to release in 2017, will be a romantic-comedy with great music. The movie will also star Miss Pakistan USA, 2015, Sahrish Khan.
Punjab Nahin Jaongi
The film starring Mehwish Hayat, Humayun Saeed, Ahmed Ali Butt, and Urwa Hocane, has faced a few cast issues before the shooting started. However, the movie is now back on track and we are really looking forward to see Mehwish and Humayun together after Jawani Phir Nahin Ani. Scripted by Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, Punjab Nahin Jaongi is a romantic cross-cultural film that will quite different to movies previously screened, but we are sure it would be a great entertainer.
