Definitely not a winner
Salam , just watched this movie on 19th July at Cineplex Centaurus Islamabad it was the only show , to be honest I wasn't much excited as I already read the reviews of its premiere in Karachi where public said that story was weak but still I had some hope and faith but as soon as the movie started all the expectations went in vain from very first scene the movie seemed a typical traditional Pakistani fair where sweet dish was shown being prepared with dialogs very weak indeed but yet Mahira Khan caught your attention because of sharp colors used in dressing and sets anyway the movie then started with old typical girl loves boy plot where boy doesn't show much interest then later he goes abroad where he falls in love with someone and marries blah blah , then crying tears and every thing happens so quickly in this movie that you don't even know what is happening scene to scene details are not shown every thing is done in so hurry as if one's halwa was getting cold , it seemed as if they made this story for drama but later decided to put whole drama in 2 hour movie and that too forcefully so script was extremely poor and so weak it would have worked 15 years back but no chance in today's era. Acting was quite good by all three lead members Humayun was superb as usual with mature acting , Mahira was sharp , Armeena had small screen time but did her part best rest cast was wasted to be honest it seemed extra to me. Music was the best part of the movie with all 5 songs outstanding straight from the heart , background score was superb and fantastic really enjoyed all songs especially Maula Maula which was magical on screen especially songs 2nd part at the end . So for me this movie brings nothing new in revival of cinema no path breaking element in it but only contributes a little bit in revival cycle only tiny addition not much , with this cast they could have made a brilliant love story but chance missed and main culprit was bad script going no where any way not a recommendable piece of cinema . Overall 6/10 , Script 3/10 , acting 8/10 , Music 10/10.
