The Fahad Mustafa and Mehwish Hayat starrer, Load Wedding is all set to release digitally at the streaming giant ‘Netflix’. The social satire would be available to viewers from March onwards and we are happy that the underrated film is finally getting the much-needed recognition.
Nabeel Qureshi Says…
In an interview to Galaxy Lollywood last month, talking about his most underrated film, Nabeel had hinted at this development regarding Load Wedding. He had said:
… The film had the potential to perform well at the box office. People couldn’t watch it due to the horrid allocations and odd timings given to the film. It was sabotaged by the cinema owners from day one as it wasn’t wisely distributed. I hope people will get a chance to watch LW when it releases digitally and that it will register itself as a hit.
The Unfair Treatment in Cinemas
It will surely be a sigh of relief for Nabeel Qureshi who was disappointed with the film’s distribution at the time of its release. Load Wedding released alongside Nadeem Baig’s Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 and Haseeb Hassan’s Parwaaz Hai Junoon on Eid-ul-Azha 2018.
In that race of three, Load Wedding came out the last in terms of box office numbers. Nabeel’s anger was evident with his social media threads about the improper distribution of the film.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the Netflix; or other platforms like Amazon Prime and Iflix for that matter, are becoming a big addiction all over the globe. It’s a hassle-free affair to watch your favorite films and TV shows.
Therefore, Load Wedding’s inclusion there is good news for not only the fans but for the makers of the film too.
