Promising a magnificent cinematic experience and three tales that seem equally good for different reasons-Pakistan’s first ever anthology film Teri Meri Kahaniyaan is all set to release this Eid-ul-Adha. The film will narrate three separate stories of distinct genres, each helmed and written by a different director and writer respectively.
Teri Meri Kahaniyaan is A Venture of SeePrime
Teri Meri Kahaniyaan is a venture of SeePrime who are making their debut from digital content to silver screen with this film. As mentioned by Hira and Mani, in a promotional clip on SeePrime’s Instagram, one of the plots of the film was supposed to be released as a short film but was later turned into a cinema film.
Promising Teaser for Teri Meri Kahaniyaan
The teaser of the film not only seems promising, but the rendition seems one that will raise the bar for Pakistani cinema, making it one-of-a-kind experience.
The teaser begins with a melodious tune in the background, with changing frames, as we are familiarized to all the protagonists in the three stories. Cut to, we are introduced to the first story in the film that ventures into comedy-horror. The plot follows the story of a distressed family in hiding.
Hira and Mani in a Horror Story
We see a couple running away with their child, hiding in eerie and creepy locations, played by Hira Mani and Mani who will be appearing for the first time together on the big screen. There is evident fear, paranormal activities and supernatural entities lurking around that will give you goosebumps. The story is penned by Basit Naqvi and Ali Abbas Naqi, who rose to fame for their work in Laal Kabootar, and is directed by Nabeel Qureshi who has done a brilliant job with his foray into realm of horror.
Sheheryar Munawar and Ramsha Khan in a Romantic Comedy
While the second narrative of the film starring Sheheryar Munawar and Ramsha Khan, on the surface seems like a romantic comedy, there are many layers and messages that are at first hidden to the eyes. This one seems like a complete package-there is humor, dance, and an element of mystery and intrigue.
We are introduced to the characters of Sheheryar Munawar and Ramsha Khan who are getting married in eight hours. Chaos and confusion reigns in this household with everyone preoccupied to solve their own problems.
We also see a scene where the character of Ramsha Khan is running from her house before her wedding. The trailer leaves us with a dozen questions- is Sheheryar facilitating Ramsha’s escape? Are they in love or are getting married due to pressure? Is Ramsha running away to pursue her dreams or is there an ulterior motive? Well, we will have to wait for the movie to be released to find out. This part of the film is directed by Marina Khan and is written by Vasay Chaudhry.
Wahaj Ali and Mehwish Hayat in a Timeless Romantic
The third and the final plot of the film has successfully built up our anticipation where we are hoping for a jaw-dropping story. The scene opens with Mehwish Hayat, dressed in a sari, reading ‘Forty Rules of Love’ by Elif Shafak and the character of Wahaj Ali having his gaze fixated at her. Wahaj’s character is shown to be a painter in the film, who completely leaves Mehwish’s character smitten with his sketch of hers.
Mehwish opens up to him, confessing that she is married. Now will the tale of these two strangers end with the train journey or has fate something else planned for them?
We also see a shot of Zahid Ahmed and Amna Ilyas in the film where they don’t exchange any dialogues, leaving us wondering about their characters. This part of the film is written by the writer-director duo of Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar and Nadeem Baig.
Needless to say, Teri Meri Kahaniyaan promises something for everyone due to its diverse set of genres. Each part of the film has a different ambiance and mood, that is somehow differentiating all of them and yet aligning the three plots. We are highly anticipating the release of the film this Eid-ul-Adha.
