Mehrunisa V Lub U – All about change but you can’t watch with your family!

A film that release on Eid, would it really become super hit?

Mehrunisa V Lub U is all set to release today (Eid-ul-Fitr) across nationwide, and you can watch it at your nearest cinema. But before watching the film, don’t forget to read this blog post!

Recently a premiere of Mehrunisa V Lub was held at Neuplex Cinema, Karachi. An event was attended by many socialites, celebrities, models, bloggers press, and media, along with the entire cast of the film.

 

Ali (Danish Taimoor – Leading Actor) who just reaches at Karachi after completing his education from China. The entire mohalla (society) is busy in celebration and welcoming him. Then he becomes distributing gifts among not only his family members but also people of mohalla. After that the story starts about the searching a girl for Ali, and yes Javaid sheikh (Ali’s Father) finds a childhood pic of Ali’s friend from his wallet. Then what? Sheikh Sahib calls girls’ father, and on hurry the entire family goes to Northern areas of Pakistan, where girl lives.

Mehru (Sana Javaid – Leading Actress) is busy in dreaming, and this is the moment when the first song of the film comes “Tu Hi Tu.” Then everything rushes, and finally Ali marry to Mehru, and bring her to Karachi.

Mehru seems so disturbed with the loudness, pollution, noisy environment, and rush life of Karachi, because she had lived so calm life in northern areas. So, this sudden change has obviously to disturb her.

Marzee G (Nayyar Ejaz – Transgender Villain) who wants ruling on the Jordan Mohalla. Because he follows commands of politician Malik Sahib (Shah G), and in near future the worth of that society has to touch the sky.

To see this disturbance of Mehru, they concern doctor, and the doctor suggests Ali to bring his wife back to northern area for some relaxation. So, that’s the moment when Ali decides to change the entire mohalla for the sake of Mehru.

 

So, the whole story revolves around mohalla, change, Marzee G, and of course Ali and Mehru, and the entire message of the film is about revolution. Although it’s the second movie of director Yasir Nawaz, he must have learn from the mistakes. But unfortunately he couldn’t.

If message of the film is strong so the direction and DOP was not as strong as it should be. The tempo of the film is up and down. The comedy is very third class, although it would definitely capture the hearts of local public, afterward they are their target audience. Film cannot be watched with the family, because of few bold scenes and third class vulgar comedy.

Here I’m sharing few of the dialogue,

Father to son, “Iss bachay ko mouka mila to pura ghar bacho sy bher de ga”

Girl asking to boy, “Mere ye L laga dogay?”

 

These are just 2 dialogues from the film, you’ll find many others related to it. So, now you can imagine which kind of dialogues has been used in the film.

If Danish has too many dialogues from start to end, so on the other hand Sana has nothing to say or maybe she has been given few dialogues, as it was her debut film.

 

My ratings for the film:

Direction: 3/5

Entertainment: 2.5/5

Performance: 2/5

Music: 2/5

Script: 1.5/5

Overall rating for the film: 2/5
