Ghabrana Nahi Hai
Another film Ghabrana Nahi Hai is directed by Saqib Khan. Saba Qamar and Zahid Ahmed are in leading roles of this mega project promising to be an action-packed ride for lovers of desi crime thrillers. If we just go by the trailer, it unpacks a love triangle, themes of corruption, debauchery and women being undermined or exploited under situations of extreme political pressure. While there isn’t much more revealed in the trailer, what we have seen and determined is how it has Saba once again taking on a rather unconventional role which is representing her plethora of acting skills. Zahid isn’t disappointing and we need to add how Rambo’s comical timing couldn’t be perfect! Talk about bits and pieces of perfection coming together.
So here is a whole new genre for you to enjoy this Eid. Yasir Nawaz’s upcoming murder-mystery and thriller, Chakkar is one of the major Eid releases that is creating quite the buzz already. While Yasir is known to be a versatile artist whose work has always been over the top with plenty of masla and entertainment, this time around he has hit onto something new.
