By AHMAD UZAIR | It seems that after the release of some very successful local films, the Pakistani Cinema Industry is definitely heading in the right direction with a lot of stuff coming out for the cinema goers. The good thing is that now we have started to see quite a trend of diverse on-screen topics specially when it comes to this recent wave of new age local cinema.
The latest in the line is the release of the first trailer of the movie Mah-e-Meer that has been really the talk of the town lately and it would not be wrong to say that it was one of the most talked about thing on the social media in the last few days much owing to the novelty of the topic that has been showcased in the film.
According to the Facebook page of the movie, Mah-e-Meer is about the life and time of the classical Urdu poet Mir Taqi Meer. It further states,:
“Mah-e-Meer meaning the promiscuous moon is a story that follows the struggle of a contemporary poet and draws parallels with events in Mir’s life.
His conflict with the royal court, his romance with a courtesan, his …ideals of bringing Urdu poetry to the people in the streets and his eventual madness in full moon; all reflected in his poetry.”
The film also features the star cast in the form Manzar Sehbai as Dr Kareem, Fahad Mustafa in the lead role as Jamal, Iman Ali as Mahtab, Sanam Saeed as Naina Kanwal and Aly Khan as Nawab Sahab.
It is to be noted that the leading lady of the industry, Iman Ali who is making a comeback after being in hibernation for some time will be once again seen in the character of a courtesan which is nothing new for her as she has garnered a lot of praise for her pretty much similar role earlier in BOL.
Jointly directed by Anjum Shahzad and Sarmad Sehbai, Another attraction of the film remains to be its OST which will consist of atleast 5 songs, not to forget the music that will be given by the ace musician Shahi Hasan.
Mah-e-Meer is currently said to be in its post production phase but after seeing the response that the initial trailer of the film got, the makers of the movie must be considering to release the movie as soon as possible. We Hope that this project turns out to be yet another milestone in defining the future of our industry.
