PAKISTAN, Lahore, 12 June 2014: Filmwala Pictures announced today that they will release their debut production, NA MALOOM AFRAAD in Pakistan in August 2014. Directed by Nabeel Qureshi (BNN, Pandora, The President), NA MALOOM AFRAAD tells the story of three protagonists and their irony of life in the most amusing way.
The film is produced by Fizza Ali Meerza under her company Filmwala Pictures. Qureshi’s prestigious cast includes Javed Sheikh, Fahad Mustafa, Mohsin Abbass Haider, Salman Shahid, Urwa Hocaine, and British actress, Kubra Khan. Mehwish Hayat will also make an appearance in the much awaited film, in a totally new avatar which will include a thrilling and jaw dropping dance number which is already setting trends and echoing in the masses. The film was co-written by Qureshi and Meerza and the Cinematographer is Rana Kamran.
The film will premiere post Ramadan in cinemas across Pakistan. Filmwala Pictures is all set to reveal the identities of Na Maloom Afraad through their film which is a true entertainment package for the audience at large with numerous ironic twists and turns. The word Na Maloom Afraad is in news almost every day in our country, however, the makers of the film have interpreted it differently by adding humour, fun and paradox in the daily lives of the characters in the movie thus making it a true social comedy thriller.
Sharing his thoughts, Nabeel Qureshi, Director Na Maloom Afraad said: “The backbone of this film is the original script and content. The intervening plots and overlapping situations shall gratify the audiences in the most amusing and humorous way. The story line is very close to the lives of the people living in Pakistan particularly Karachi and the film has been shot mostly in the old areas of this metropolitan city. This film has a number of songs amongst them the thematic song of the movie has been sung by Sajjad Ali. This is the first Pakistani film completely shot on state-of-the-art camera, Arri Alexa. The film at the moment is in post-production and the trailers shall soon be seen on different TV channels”.
The makers of this film claim that this film will set new trends and standards for the upcoming movies in the emerging Pakistani film industry. The growth of Pakistani cinema is opening up new horizons for the film makers which shall give a boost to the industry in its transitional phase. Fizza Ali Meerza and Nabeel Qureshi feel more of such films shall be made to provide entertainment to the masses as there is yet a lot to explore in this industry and that the people are ardent to see more of Pakistani entertainment than any other.
