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:

1. Verna

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.

    Only Arth is a standard good movie. Rest are all jokes and bound to flop.

    Shoaib mansoor is known to make films in 2 crores budget films. How can you hit 50 crore club with spending peanuts.

    Others does not even worth mentioning.Recommend
