2015 was a healthy year for the Pakistani Film Industry with more than 15 films releasing with almost all of them doing good business specially Bin Roye, Wrong No and Jawani Phir Nahi Aani.
Looking forward to 2016? Great. Because there are two very anticipated/awaited films coming out this January, yes two films in the very first month. One of them is Jamal Shah’s Revenge Of The Worthless and second being Asim Raza’s Ho Mann Jahaan.
Revenge Of The Worthless is Jamal Shah’s directorial debut who has also written the film whereas film is produced by Amna Shah (Hunerkada Films). The cast of ROTW has some big names like Firdous Jamal, Maira Khan, Shamil Khan, Ayub Khoso and Jamal Shah himself.
ROTW highlights the heroic struggle of some of the unsung heroes during the 2009 Swat insurgency. Jamal Shah in a n inteview said that,
“I think people will find it entertaining and Taliban should also watch it. They’ll enjoy it because we do not brand people in black & White, there are shades of grey”
ROTW is not a war film, it is an issue based film but based on Pathans and revolves around their culture, something new in the industry. Not to forget, the sets and costumes have been designed by the art departments of Hunerkada College. The music of the film is done by the great Mehdi Raza. According to the Wikipedia page of ROTW, the budget of the film is said to be Rs. 1.5 Crores. The film is all set to release on January 16, 2016.
Talking about Ho Mann Jahaan, one of the most awaited films, couldn’t get a release in 2015 for some reasons but finally HMJ is releasing on January 01, 2016.
HMJ is directed by the veteran Asim Raza who is also producing the film along with Sheheryar Munawar. The film is penned by Raza himself. Although, Yasir Hussain has done the script work, who previously did the script for Wajahat Hussain’s Karachi Se Lahore.
HMJ’s cast is a trio everyone is waiting to see on-screen. Mahira Khan, Sheheryar Munawar and Adeel Hussain. Some other big names include Bushra Ansar, Sonya Jehan and Nimra Bucha.
Since, Ho Mann Jahaan is a musical love story, it’s music is something that has been the talk of the town. With singers like Atif Aslam, Zebunnisa Bangash, Faakhir, Jimmy Khan, Asrar and Gulfam Ramay who won’t wait for the music album. It was recently disclosed that the film will be releasing under ARY Films this January.
