Pakistani cinema and films have seen a long struggle to vouch audiences to the cinemas. The long-lasting revival of Pakistani cinema is the much needed excellence and the rising number of films each year is bringing in more support and masses. With a number of Bollywood films releasing recently, Pakistani films might struggle to get the audience to the cinemas but nevertheless what it is, we must give our films a chance to succeed and not let them get effected from other major industries. Only 3-4 major Pakistani films are releasing this month and one of them is Balu Mahi which is hitting the cinemas on February 10th. So we here, bring you six reasons on why you should look forward to Balu Mahi.
1) Osman Khalid Butt and Sadaf Kanwal’s debut film
Balu Mahi marks OKB and Sadaf’s first commercial film as actors. We know that OKB has disappointed his fans with his role in Sanam, but let’s give him the benefit of doubt yet again since we expect a power packed performance from him in his upcoming flick and not to forget he’s really handsome too. Sadaf Kanwal on the other hand is the rising star of Pakistan, from being a super model to bagging a role in a leading film is a fast and impressive journey.
2) Ainy Jaffri essaying a different role
Ainy Jaffri is mostly seen essaying the cliched damsel in distress roles in dramas but this time her character Mahi seems like a happy go lucky girl. A girl who is fearless and full of life and is a character we wouldn’t want to miss as she looks purely gorgeous.
3) A visual treat for the cinema-goers
The teasers and trailers gives a feel of fresh and enticing plot which is surely going to be a good addition to the infancy stage of Pakistani film industry. There isn’t much we’ve seen of Balu Mahi but we are sure that the viewers are in for a visual treat with this masala dosed film. And those exotic scenic locations with amazing direction has got us even more excited!
4) Sahir Ali Bagga’s music
The songs of Balu Mahi are surely not to be missed, with every song having a different feel to it. Where one makes us groove to it, the other touches your heart and you can’t help but fall in love with it. The title track of Balu Mahi is a cool party song, Bechaniyan celebrates love and friendship in those beautiful scenes. Rang de chunar is a soothing to the ears and Tu Kya Jane is the heartbreak song in beautiful locations.
5) The rom-com genre
Romance is most of the time a key to a successful film and the central theme of Balu Mahi is love with a twist. It’s a youthful coming of age film which surely has lots of Pakistani feel to it specially those jokes in the trailer. So as we all know its an epic adventure film, the journey of love and self discovery and Sadaf’s there for all the troublesome!
6) Support the cinema
If there is one most important reason than that is to support Pakistani cinema. Pakistani cinema is trying to achieve the milestone which other industries did after years of trial, so the audiences should support their own cinema to expect more meaty films in future.
