A still from the upcoming film.

What a promising year this is turning out to be for Pakistani cinema. With two films (indie film Siyaah and Shahzad Nawaz’s Chambaili) having been released already, we are anticipating a few more. And the trailer that has caught our attention is the recently released teaser of Six Sigma’s Main Hoon Shahid Afridi.

We can’t decide if it’s the two-second clip of the sizzling Mahnoor Baloch dancing that has us going gaga, or the fact that the storyline is based on a sport close to our hearts.

MHSA is the story of a young man who dreams of becoming the star cricketer himself, but is struggling to achieve his dream. He realises that his final chance is a cricket tournament that will take place in Sialkot, where he hopes he can defeat professional, undefeated rivals. He and his team take help from former cricketer Akbar Deen (played by Humayun Saeed), who helps them but has a dark past of his own.

The Main Hoon Shahid Afridi team describes the film as “a journey of mistrust, betrayal, love, power and unfulfilled dreams” — we can’t wait to watch it on Eid ul Fitr!

Pakistan could make good movies but it will take some times.Please please please if you want to support Pakistani movies please go and watch all Pakistan movies that come to the cinema even if it does not look like a Bollywood or a hollywood movie. It is the only way to give confiance to Pakistani film maker. Pakistani can not make big budget movies now because they are not enough cinemas un Pakistan to make enough profit to recover their money.

@bruteforce and wt excuse does india have in producing those extremely lame soaps which have MILs popping their eyes out and women dressed up extremely distastefully. do they not see Pakistani dramas? im sure Indians too have access to Pakistani, Iranian, Turkish dramas. when would they learn how to make a good tv drama?
