Eid is one of those festivals when people explore different opportunities to enjoy and relax. Apart from meets & greets and family get-togethers, cinema is one of the best entertainment there is. This Eidul Azha three major films are releasing among others. Superstar, Parey Hut Love and Heer Maan Ja are competing to gain supremacy at the box office.
The revival of Pakistan film industry has been slow but steady. Though we are not out of the woods yet, but still there is enough light at the end of the tunnel. Now we can expect good things from our rejuvenating film industry. Here is a quick look at the top three movies releasing on Eid.
Heer Maan Ja
As the name suggests Heer Maan Ja is a lighthearted entertainment. But the seemingly commercial movie is not without purpose. The movie touches some serious issues like honor killing and the rights of women in our society. It is directed by Azfar Jafri featuring Ali Rehman and Hareem Farooq among others. This Imran Kazmi production brings a lot of action, romance, comedy and music to the big screen.
Parey Hut Love
Parey Hut Love seems to have all the ingredients to give a tough time to Mahira Khan’s Superstar. The stellar cast including Maya Ali and Sheheryar Munawar will dance to the beat of drama, romance and a bit of action to lure the audiences. Directed by Asim Raza Parey Hut Love is banking on its powerful music, an element that play a decisive role in the success of a movie.
Superstar is the strongest of the three movies that could be hugely successful on the box office. The reason being that the film has been trending on social media and news for some time now. The controversy of Mahira Khan’s inspiration or imitation of Madhuri Dixit and later the battle of words between Firdous Jamal and Mahira Khan gave the movie the much needed hype.
The conflict between Firdous Jamal and Mahira reached unnecessary seriousness that split the showbiz industry into two. With this hype and controversy Superstar has got the attention it needed before release. Directed by Ehteshamuddin the film features Bilal Ashraf and Mahira Khan in the lead roles. The film has got all things covered from drama, romance, tragedy, comedy and music. The film also features an item song by Kubra Khan.
With all three of them releasing on Eidul Azha, it remains to be seen which one gets the most love and attention from the cinema goers.
