Trailer feista - which one makes you wanna go watch the movie?


So its kind of FIRST OF ITS KIND  blog post of mine because I don't do movies and cinema, not because I don't watch them, its just that its not my forte.  All those technical terms and execution flaws and criticism on minute stuff and I am just like "ummmmm okay, but I like what you just called crap"  so yeah I am that kind of cinema goer and movie critic. 
Now there is this revival of the Pakistani Cinema that I am super excited about (partially because I don't like our neighbor's movies pouring in and partially because its good to see our own Industry growing). With so many movies all lined up for release between July and September, there are back to back trailer releases and to be honest they are amazing.
So what I have today is that I  am linking all those movie trailers below and just adding my two cents as well (obviously)  because some of them make me want to get the tickets NOW and some of them make me want to text the producers WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?  so yeah let's get started!

1. ISHQ POSITIVE :


Starring : Noor Bukhari,  Wali Hamid khan
Release Date : 22 July, 2016

Seeing the trailer, one can easily guess the type of movie its going to be. With the typical romantic comedy set up with a little bit  of tragedy at the climax,this one is going to be an amalgam of many bollywood flicks. The location and cinematography looks kind of promising but I don't have high hopes from any of the leads to be honest.

2. Actor in Law :

Staring :  Fahad Mustafa, Mahwish Hayat, Om puri
Release date : 10 Sept, 2016
One thing that a trailer should do is make you want to get out of your home and go watch the whole thing in the cinema and
That's exactly what actor in law's trailer does. After the success of Na Maloom Afrad,  I am sure this will give us a good laugh as well.  In short, I have high hopes for this one

3. Zindagi Kitni haseen hai :

video

Starring : Feroze khan, Sajal Ali,  Ali khan

Release date: 10 Sept, 2016



Okay what on earth was that?  That is one really confused trailer. At least I can make nothing out of it. The only thing that can pull this movie off is the Feroze-Sajal fan dome. Personally I am not the fan of this on screen couple and they still fail to impress me at least in the trialer. Not at a single point while watching the trailer I thought of going to cinema and watch the whole thing because these 2 minutes are pure torture to me, with incoherent dialogues to poor expressions of Feroze Khan, this one is a total bummer for me because the BTS pictures in the social media looked quite promising,even the teaser was acceptable. Fingers crossed for this one

4. JANNAN:

Starring : Armeena Rana Khan, Bilal Ashraf,  Ali Rehman
Release Date  :10 Sept, 2016


Set in the beautiful valley of Swat, the view is going to be awesome.  Its looks like just another movie with having the element of romance, comedy,  a bit of tragedy. What I gathered from the trailer is that Ali Rehman will be a treat to watch while Armeena khan and Bilal Ashraf fail to deliver at least in the trailer.  I am repeatedly saying IN THE TRAILER because that doesn't mean it will be the same in the movie.  But, yes BUT, I want to go see it, yes I do, because the scenic beauty of valley of swat is going to be an amazing watch on the cinema screen.

5. Dobara Phir Se:

video
Starring : Hareem Farooq, Sanam Saeed, Tooba Siddiqui,  Atiqa Odho, Adeel Hussain
Release date :August, 2016

Now this is what I call a trailer, its beautiful, all the characters get some screen time, there is music, there is some fun, there is some serious stuff going on. All in all, this makes the movie feel promising. Set amidst some beautiful locations abroad, with fun and quirky cast, I am sure it will pull people to the cinema. Watching the trailer not at single point I got bored and wanted to skip it. Not to mention, yes I have a thing for Adeel Hussain, so yeah somewhat the fan is talking here too.  But still, be honest isn't it a good watch?


That's all for today and my first ever movie related post. Do let me know in the comments below which one of the above makes you want to watch it in the cinema. My favorite among the lot is Dobara Phir se, what's yours?
Stay Blessed

  2. I really don't like our neighbors movies especially nowadays they make me cringe. I don't know how people tolerate them for more then 5 minutes. Having said that i am looking forward for our own cinema revival. I hope we get to see some good films. Thanks for suggestions and trailers.
