Yalghaar – It’s all about Patriotism

A nation that don’t only love their army, but also feel proud on their army. Army is the only organization in Pakistan that is only free from corruption, but also always ready to serve his country.
Pakistan Army! Zindabad

Pakistan Zindabad

Yalghaar – a movie, which has been released on this Eid-ul-Fitr in Pakistan along with 22 other countries of the world. Just before the Eid, a premiere of the movie was held at Islamabad, and the reviews were shared on social media made me speechless until and unless I myself watched the movie.

Just a day before, an event of special screening of Yalghaar movie by Bank Alfalah was held at Cinepax Cinema, Karachi. It was attended by media, press, socialites, bloggers, celebrities, along with the movie cast.

A movie starts from war and ends at war, because it’s Yalghaar. A movie which is based on a true story. All you can find in it from action and thriller to comedy and romance.

Nothing is perfect, so one more thing I would like to share that there were many blunders in the movie like over casting, wrong placement of brand, no scene sequence, unexpected intermission, dialogue delivery (few artists), etc. were the few from the movie. But I must say these all can be ignored because of strong, true and untold story of Pakistan Army, and you’ll definitely love the movie.

Story is very clear! It’s an army operation in which they’ve to clear swat area from terrorists. The tempo of the movie was smooth, you’ll never feel bore but yes there were very few scenes in which you might lose attention.

If I talk about the actors so Shaan shahid, Bilal Ashraf, Adnan Siddiqui, Umair Jeswal and Ayub Khoso were played the role of soldiers. So on the other hand, Sana Bucha, Uzma Khan, Ayesha Omar, and Armeena Rana Khan played the role of wives, and girlfriends. While Humayun Saeed was the villain of the movie, and Gohar Rasheed was the part of his group.

Except few actor not everyone could become successful to satisfy the audience by their acting skills. The movie also had few emotional scenes as well, which might bring tears in your eyes.

Here are the pictures of the event

Mahira Khan is all set to comeback fromVerna

Mahira Khan, who is one of the most talented, charming and an amazing Pakistani actress, and popularly known for her incredible acting skills. She gave her debut from the film Bol, and now after 5 years, she is all set to comeback from the film Verna.

The man who is credited for the revival of Pakistani cinema, is all set for a comeback. After the blockbusters like Bol and Khuda Ke Liye, ready to give another blockbuster Verna. Yes, I’m talking about one of the brilliant Pakistani director, none other than Shoaib Mansoor. Who himself has written, and will direct his upcoming film Verna, under his banner SHOMAN Productions.

While talking about the film, actress Mahira Khan revealed,

“Well, I think the whole journey now would be very different. My part in Bol was small and also my first ever acting experience. I was nervous but I was carefree, enjoying my time on set with the kids who played my brother and sisters. When Shoaib Sahab called me after five years this time and told me the story, I knew I’d be challenged as an actor.”

On announcing his next film, director Shoaib Mansoor stated,

“This film is being made by a man of Pakistan, to urge the men of the world to listen to women. It will encourage women to speak up. Khuda ke liye bol verna…”

Sultana Siddiqui, President HUM Network said,

“We at HUM are very happy to have signed up as distributors for Shoaib Mansoor’s film Verna. He is a brilliant director and his views on subjects that are close to our hearts as well, are similar. Shoaib’s films are commercial but at the same time focus on topics that carry a strong message.”

She further said,

“We’re hopeful that this film will be even more successful than his previous ones.”

The film is expected to release on Eid-ul-Fitr 2017.
