Pakistani cinema revived with the release of Waar starring Shaan Shahid. Since then we have seen a constant stream of films coming out in the country. We have had blockbuster hits like Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2 and Punjab Nahi Jaongi with Fahad Mustafa starrers doing great business. After Covid hit, 5 Pakistani films released in cinemas and couldn’t do much due to a Hollywood release with them. This gave way to a lot of anticipation for Sarmad Khoosat’s Kamli.
Kamli boasts a very talented star cast including Saba Qamar, Hamza Khawaja, Sania Saeed, Omair Rana and Nimra Bucha. It is also a non-Eid release and only Ali Zafar’s Teefa In Trouble has been a non-Eid hit in Pakistan since the revival of cinema. With Hollywood giants as Dr. Strange, Top Gun:Maverick and upcoming Jurrassic World movie in the waiting, a niche film Kamli was in everybody’s eye but looks like it will come out with flying colours.
The film is nearing one crore on opening weekend:
Saturday: 44 Lacs
Total: 76 Lacs
Box office analyst shared the numbers and things are looking great for Kamli:
The film reportedly ended up crossing 1 crore mark with 1.14 crore in total in 3 days:
Public reviews are extremely positive for the film:
Let’s hope things look up for Pakistani films from here as big films London Nahi Jaunga and Quaid e Azam Zindabaad will be releasing o Eid ul Adha!
