Revival of Pakistani cinema has been an colossally thrilling endowment for movie lovers like me. Can’t thank enough! On Tuesday, 22nd November 2016, the premiere of the film ‘Dobara Phir Se’ was held at Cinestar Cinema Lahore. The event was undoubtedly star-studded as the cast, with the director par excellence Mehreen Jabbar was present at the happening.
The romantic, but simple story revolves around complicated relationships and tasks of getting along with them and sometimes getting off with them too. The cast includes Ali Kazmi, Hareem Farooq, Adeel Hussain, Tooba Siddiqui, Sanam Saeed, Atiqa Odho and Shaz Khan to name some. Hareem Farooq as Zainab, plays the role of a divorcee and the story revolves around her. If the marriage is not working, it says distinctly, split-up is the answer - but is the road ahead really free of scrapes? You will have to find the answer yourself. Adeel Hussain gets involved in her, leaving behind a normal-too-good relationship with Tooba Siddiqui. Not keeping the movie predictable, there comes a twist after which the fate of the film is to be decided by the viewer.
Talking about the film, the director Mehreen Jabbar earlier said, ‘There are other genres to be explored yet than just rom-coms!’ So, I advise, not to expect DPS as a routine candyfloss entertainer. Thankfully, no item songs have been added and I would like to give a standing ovation to Mehreen for thinking out of the box. The screenplay as well as cinematography is commendable and one does not feel bored. Editing also gets good marks! No doubt, all the actors did a brilliant job. No over - or even under - acting was seen by any of the performers. The movie is about friendship and love, a little fun is added and the director has intelligently not mixed it with jesting. Such a change was important for the cinema, as the viewers are a bit jaded with the same genres; the rom-coms, released one after another, earlier this year.
Not only the cast, but many bodacious luminaries also attended the event to cheer up their friends. Pakistani cinema requires a lot of support and our celebrities are kind enough to give the backing. The event was managed by the very famous, Qasim Yar Tiwana (QYT). Since there was no insanity and chaos at the event; QYT is known for all the right reasons.
It’s a fine piece of ARY Films, produced by Salman Iqbal and co-produced by Mohammad Jerjees Seja to be released on Friday, 25th November, 2016.
