The revival of Pakistani cinema is in full swing and the latest trend these days is to directly interact with the audiences by having a live chat on a social media page so there is a one on one conversation about the movie and that is something which we just love.
The latest team to go live was of Parchi's which was a fun session along with the co-producer Imran Kazmi, the cast including Ali Rehman, Ahmed Ali, Usman Mukhtar, and Osman Khalid Butt whose role has still not been disclosed and it seems it won't be for some time at least.
With Osman Khalid Butt being very much a part of the movie, everyone kept quiet about what exactly is he doing on the set but we have a feeling that it is not acting related. What ever it is that only time will tell. But having watched Ali Rehman and Ahmed Ali having a ball along with Imran Kazmi (who himself is pretty hilarious) there were also some interesting points which we picked up related to Parchi.
So here goes,
It's not a Slapstick Comedy
Now that is what we were glad to hear as Osman Khalid Butt revealed that the movie was a situational comedy in the sense that it is a series of misadventure of ordinary boys who get entangled in a web.
The Writer is also part of the movie
Yes, guys, Parchi is written by Shafqat Khan who works in theatre and we will get to see him on the screen too who will be playing an interesting character.
Does it have an item number?
No, not at all. Both Ali Rehman and Ahmed Ali confirmed that the movie has no such song.
Shot in Pakistan
With Punjab Nahi Jaungi also shot in the country, we are so glad to see another movie shot entirely in Islamabad and Rawalpindi with some left to shoot in Karachi soon.
Co-producer Imran Kazmi revealed that Parchi will be released in the US as well which has left us very excited.
More than one hero
Now this will be something new as all in all there are going to be not one or three but 6 heroes in the movie as it is an ensemble cast.
Other cast members
We know that Hareem Farooq, Ahmed Ali, Ali Rehman, Usman Mukhtar are all part of the film but they will be joined by Faizan Sheikh and Faiza Saleem which just made sure the movie is going to be a super fun watch.
Teaser to release soon
This is the big question on everyone's lips that when will we get to see the teaser and Kazmi said that within the next 20 days or so the teaser will be out.
Not disclosing much about the lead actors roles or even their characters name we missed not seeing Hareem Farooq as she was caught up in the shooting of a song which was going on while the boys decided to answer few questions for their fans.
Parchi being made under the banner of IRK Films – a company co-owned by Hareem Farooq and Imran Kazmi, makers of Janaan, we can't wait to see it hit the screens.
