Back in March of this year, it was announced that the makers of hit films like Actor In Law, Na Maloom Afraad franchise, and Load Wedding, producer Fizza Ali Meerza and director Nabeel Qureshi, would not be releasing any film in 2019. Fans of the duo were quite disappointed to hear that as the duo has made a firm and respectable position for themselves in Lollywood by giving back-to-back hit films since they released their first film, Na Maloom Afraad, in 2014.
The good news is that both of them are teaming up yet again under their production banner Filmwala Pictures, not for one, but two films which are scheduled to release in 2020.
The first of the two films is titled Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad. This action-comedy film will revolve around a notorious cop and is expected to be an action thriller consisting of various twists and turns with quick-witted humor. Seeing how this genre is somewhat of a signature for this duo as seen by the success of the Na Maloom Afraad franchise, it is surely exciting to see them return to doing what they do best. Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad is scheduled to release on Eid-ul-Azha, 2020.
The second film is titled Fatman, a thrilling action comedy-drama revolving around an ordinary person who becomes a superhero by accident. With global cinema being dominated by various superhero film franchises, the idea of a desi superhero sounds not only exciting but promising as well. There has been no word as of now about this film’s release date but seeing the team’s history, it is safe to assume that Fatman is most likely to be an Eid release as well.
A deliberate decision
Apparently, the makers deliberately took a break from film-making in 2019 as they disclosed that they had been working tirelessly on perfecting the scripts of these two films for the past year. Fizza and Nabeel are often credited with bringing fresh and innovative ideas on screen. They believe that every Pakistani filmmaker should also do the same, as uplifting Pakistani cinema can only be done via a collective effort. The reason why they are releasing two films in 2020, as opposed to just releasing one film per yer as they usually do, is because of the ban on Indian movies.
The cast of both the projects is unannounced as of now. Seeing how the genres of both the films promise massy entertainers that this team is known for, we are quite excited to know who is going to star in which film. We also appreciate Filmwala Picture’s decision of coming out with two films in the year as it is the need of the hour for the sustenance of Pakistani cinema. Stay tuned to Galaxy Lollywood for all the updates and developments about both these films!
