Eid is maybe the busiest day at the multiplexes. Audiences have a ton of options of both Hollywood and Lollywood films playing in theatres. To get you up to speed, here is a detailed list of all the films coming this Eid.
However, while some people make it a priority to go to the cinemas, the majority choose to stay at home. This includes many reasons; some can’t afford the expensive ticket prices while others are just too busy with the Eid festivities.
But that doesn’t mean that these people can’t enjoy films at home. OTT platforms have given people the opportunity to stay at home and have a good time. Here are the films available on OTT platforms for you to finally watch or revisit at home this Eid.
JPNA & JPNA 2
Jawani Phir Nahi Ani in 2015, and its sequel Jawani Phir Nahi Ani in 2018, made many a star. The films took audiences by surprise and generated the perfect storm at the box office, still holding spots in the top 10 highest grossing films in the country.
The films gave something new and fresh to the audience with globe-trotting adventures and incredible ensemble casts. Both blockbusters are currently streaming on the Tamasha app where you can check them out, or revisit, this Eid.
Punjab Nahi Jaungi, from the same creative team, is also streaming on the platform.
Quaid E Azam Zindabad
Nabeel Qureshi is a master filmmaker, giving us many hits in the past. Quaid E Azam Zindabad released last Eid-ul-Adha and featured superstars Fahad Mustafa and Mahira Khan as the leads. The late Qavi Khan also had a crucial supporting role, one of the last pivotal roles of his career.
The film is currently available on the Vidly TV streaming service which is also home to Nabeel’s other previous hits such as Na Maloom Afraad 2, Actor In Law and Khel Khel Mein.
Meanwhile, Nabeel’s breakout hit Na Maloon Afraad is currently available on the B4U Movies YouTube channel.
Teefa In Trouble
The 2018 film stars Ali Zafar and Maya Ali in the lead roles. The film was not only an outright hit, but it also proved that box office success can be achieved even without the need for an Eid release. The last film to test this theory to great success was The Legend of Maula Jatt.
Netflix, the leading global streaming service, used to be the home to several Pakistani flicks. But while all of them have found new homes, the megahit Teefa in Trouble is still available to stream on the service right now.
Baaji, in 2019, reminded all of us why Meera is a superstar. The star vehicle was a glamorous yet also raw look behind the curtain of the film industry. The film also stars Amna Ilyas and Osman Khalid Butt as leads.
The supporting cast includes Mohsin Abbas Haider, Ali Kazmi and Nayyar Ejaz. All giving searing commentary on life in showbiz. The film is currently streaming on Vidly TV.
Other Hits on Vidly TV
Some other big hits of the recent past include director Asim Raza’s visually stunning productions Ho Mann Jahaan and Parey Hut Love.
Wajahat Rauf’s Karachi Se Lahore duology is also available. His other Eid hit Chhalawa is also available on the streamer.
Last year’s Eid films Ghabrana Nahi Hai and Dum Mastam are streaming as well.
This is a comprehensive list of the films that you can check out this Eid from the comfort of your homes. We wish you a very happy Eid Mubarak!
