Three Films All Set To Hit Cinemas This Coming Week

box office

The local cinema industry has been reeling and trying to get through this phase of a new film coming after every two or three weeks. Some movies have done well in the past few months, for example, Eid releases did fairly well. Then there was ‘Baaji’, ‘Aladdin’ and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ which made a considerable amount of money.

As for the coming week, we should gear up for three releases. Two local releases ‘Tum Hi Ho’ and ‘Ready Steady No’ will be shown along with a widely anticipated and big release, ‘The Lion King’ live action remake.

‘Tum Hi Ho’ stars actors Danish Taimoor, Mathira, and Qurat ul Ain in the lead roles. This film is essentially a love triangle where Taimoor plays love interest of a vamp being played by Mathira, whilst he himself is in love with a librarian played by Qurat ul Ain.

GL Verdict: The film’s first trailer came out 2 years back in 2017, but the film never got released. It was announced even further back in 2015, so it has long been in the works. However, with that being said, now it is finally ready to be shown. The trailer did not look impressive at any time and the film is coming with zero hype. We believe the film will fail to leave any mark at the box office.

‘Ready Steady No’ stars Amna Ilyas, Salman Shahid, Faisal Saif, Zain Afzal, Nargis Rasheed and Ismail Tara. It shows the journey of a couple going through many hurdles and mix-ups while they try and make their nikkah happen.

GL Verdict: Amna Ilyas has just come out of a good box office success with ‘Baaji’ but promotions for ‘Baaji’ were also much better. The film has some notable names which might bring in some good audience but it will all boil down to good content, which we hope the film contains.

Everyone knows that ‘The Lion King’ has been one of the biggest and most successful animated films ever to hit cinema screens. The music album of the Disney film still holds the record of most sales for an animated film ever with approx. over 7 million copies sold in 1994. ‘The Lion King’ is the perfect revenge saga and we hope Disney does justice to the original.

GL Verdict: ‘The Lion King’ has potential to be the second best opening of the year after ‘Avengers: Endgame’. The film’s dubbed Hindi/Urdu version boasts of ShahRukh Khan’s voice-over which will give the film a major boost all over. The film appeals to all age groups and even languages, so we’re hoping it turns out to be a mega success for all concerned.

Parting words

The local releases ‘Tum Hi Ho’ and ‘Ready Steady No’ will look to benefit from ‘The Lion King’ and we hope they can too. Fingers crossed for a big weekend next week.

I am a complete movie buff, who not only watches a lot of movies but also considers all other factors involved in making movie a success story. Movies are my passion and analysing them from all aspects is what I love doing.
