After the mid 80’s Pakistan Cinema majorly known as “Lollywood” faced a crucial downfall. Audience were invaded with international content and our content creators were not ready to do experiments or play with different narratives. This continued to happen until the multi-talented, well known creative director, writer and composer decided to break the ice with universally acclaimed Khuda kay Liye in 2007. Yes! We are talking about the pioneer of the modern cinema Shoaib Mansoor, who took a bold step by exploring complex issues through his films. After Khuda kay Liye, he made Bol in 2011 which tremendously managed to gather wide audience globally. His work has always been a gesture of motivation for other filmmakers.
The amazing director is back with a new flick “Verna” produced by HUM films, whose teaser has been launched a few hours ago and features none other than International Superstar Mahira Khan. Well, the film revolves around a rape victim and also stars singer turned actor Haroon Shahid, Rasheed Naz, Zarrar Khan along others. Verna’s first look was released nearly a month ago.
Mahira Khan, five films old, which also includes Bollywood’s Raees, surprises us in the teaser. Her body movement and wild expressions are totally worth it. Well, the teaser is good but inculcates the attitude of vagueness in mind. Nothing could be predicted regarding the movie from the teaser, but, I must say, Xpolymer Dar’s rap “Power Di Game” in the background makes it more interesting to watch and does justice to the action in the teaser.
The fact that will amaze you is that before Mahira Khan , Bollywood Super diva Kareena Kapoor Khan was approached for the role in the film but unfortunately because of some reasons she did not sign the movie.
The blood splattered logo of the film makes you feel the environment that has been tried to make in the teaser. It’s fabulous! Storyline sounds good, and we hope to see Mahira in a different avatar this time. On the whole, we are thrilled already by witnessing the short teaser and hoping to see the film on big screen very soon. Good luck team.
