The film industry in Pakistan is revving, and compelling new films are on the way. For almost two years, actors including Fawad Khan, Mikaal Zulfiqar,Mirza Gohar Rasheed, and Ex-Cricketer Wasim Akran have been honing their performances for the upcoming film ‘Money Back Guarantee’. Finally, the long-awaited movie has released a trailer.
On Friday, nearly two-minute trailer was posted with the caption, “The wait is finally over! ZASHKO Films, in collaboration with Gameover Productions and Distribution Club, present the first official theatrical trailer of ‘Money Back Guarantee’. MBG is an action, comedy and thriller movie, written and directed by Faisal Qureshi. Releases in cinemas worldwide on Eid-ul-Fitr 2023.”
The trailer was received well in the realm of Lollywood, and the majority of the fans are excited to see a different narrative on-screen that does not involve a basic romantic love story. However, the teaser does not reveal much about the story and raises certain questionable plots and concerns about the film.
Firstly, some of the scenes have an eerie resemblance to Netflix’s popular series ‘Money Heist’ and Indian Movie ‘Happy New Year’ with the masks, guns, and a group of people looting from the rich; one can only hope it doesn’t come off as a remake of another dramatisation.
The Undeniable Grasp
The film genre pertains to action, comedy, and thriller; the trailer does complete justice to these expectations. The show appears to be quite entertaining, thrilling, and full of plot twists, fast-paced sequences, and a flare that can glue someone to the screen. Perhaps, the concern here is if the movie will only possess this quality.
A Promising Cast
The trailer greets the audience with some very familiar faces. From Fawad Khan’s charming appeal to Ayesha Omar’s cameo, the short tease is full of amazing performers who are bound to make the show more attractive and increase fan following.This will mark as Wasim Akram’s debut.
Wasim Akram, Shaniera Akram, Mikaal Zulfiqar, Javed Sheikh, Jan Rambo, Gohar Rasheed, Hina Dilpazir, Shayan Khan, Mani, Kiran Malik, Ali Safina, Late Ahmad Bilal, Adnan Jaffer, Shafaat Ali, and Aqdas Waseem are just some of the stars in the highly anticipated film Money Back Guarantee.
A Haphazard Storyline?
A debatable element in the trailer is the slipshod structure of the film, but maybe this is an immature stance to fully conclude right now. Therefore, one can simply note that the trailer emerges as a narrative with multiple aims, and does not reveal anything else for us to judge upon. Either the trailer is extremely well curated, or it might foreshadow a haphazard plot of the film.
From the onlook of an open mind, this movie does stem further away from most content in Pakistan, therefore it deserves the credit of being unique and interesting. The production, actors, and dialogues are top-notch, flimsy and catchy. ‘Money Back Guarantee’ is certainly a movie worth waiting for, as it engages a load of excitement and is creating space for Pakistani cinema in the action-comedy domain. The movie is set to release on 21st April 2023.
