Entertainment Desk September 28, 2022

The Legend of Maula Jatt could be touted as one of the most awaited Pakistani films to hit theatres. The Bilal Lashari directorial, which has often been reported to be the most expensive Pakistani project to date, is finally set to release on October 13 after several delays. 

The much-anticipated movie stars Fawad Khan as the titular character Maula Jatt, while Mahira plays Mukkho Jatti. The remake will also have Hamza Ali Abbasi as Maula Jatt's arch-rival, Noori Nath. 

Now, the makers have announced that you can grab your tickets for the film as early as September 30. Taking to Instagram, the official page for Ammarah Hikmat's production shared the news of advance booking commencing this Friday. 

The film, which was initially announced in 2011, has seen many hurdles along the way. Be it the prolonged legal battle or a pandemic, The Legend of Maula Jatt kept getting delayed for one reason or the other. 

"The film transcends cultural and linguistic divides. A Sindhi will enjoy it as much as any Punjabi. The content will be very palatable to the new generation that in times to come will extend the immortality of the fictional characters, Maula And Noori," Lashari told The Express Tribune in 2020. 

However, at the same time, he did warn that the film takes certain liberties with violence which may not be digestible for some. "Parents might not find the film suitable for their kids because of the graphic nature of a few scenes so I would strictly advise against bringing children to the cinema. I would advise the faint-hearted and big babies to stay at home," he said.

“The movie aims to bring a contemporary take to the cult screen characters of Maula Jatt and Noori Nath. Said to be the country’s most expensive production to date, the movie is set to become not only a production marvel in Pakistani cinema but will take the fighting style unique to the east, ” he had previously shared. 

The Legend of Maula Jatt also stars Faris Shafi, Ali Azmat, Shafqat Cheema and Nayyer Ejaz in important roles.
