The year has almost ended – but certainly not for Pakistani movie buffs. With just over two months left in 2017, many major releases are lined up for us to feast on – and they’re sure to keep fans occupied for the rest of the year.
Here are the five most-awaited Pakistani movies yet to hit the cinemas this year:
Verna is an upcoming Pakistani social-drama film, written and directed by Shoaib Mansoor, who previously directed critically acclaimed movies, Khuda Kay Liye and Bol. It will star Mahira Khan in a leading role. The film is scheduled to release on November 17, 2017.
2. Arth 2
Arth 2, which is basically a remake of Mahesh Bhatt’s Arth (considered one of Bollywood’s finest Bhatt production), stars Shaan Shahid alongside Humaima Malik, Mohib Mirza and Uzma Hassan. Shaan is also directing the project. The movie is set to release in December 2017.
Rangreza is a highly anticipated romantic-musical film. It stars Urwa Hocane, Bilal Ashraf and Gohar Rasheed. Staying true to its genre, the film’s music has garnered positive reviews from the audience. The movie is directed by Amir Mohiuddin and is expected to release on December 21, 2017.
Hareem Farooq starrer Parchi is a situtaional comedy film set to show the Dobara Phir Se star in a completely new avatar. The cast also includes Ali Rehman Khan and Ahmed Ali. The movie is directed by Janaan’s director, Azfar Jafri and is set to release in December 2017.
Directed by Syed Atif Ali and co-written by Muhammad Ahsan, Pari is an upcoming Pakistani horror film that reminds one of the likes of The Conjuring and Annabelle.
The director, an avid Stephen King fan, promises the movie has a solid story line. With no prominent faces starring in the movie, the story-line will be the sole star of the show. Let’s hope it proves to be a successful venture and we all can finally celebrate a good Pakistani horror movie. The movie is expected to release on November 3, 2017.
