Trailer of upcoming film Parchi, which is directed by Azfar Jafri and produced by Imran Raza Kazmi, Hareem Farooq and Arif Lakhani, was released in Karachi earlier tonight with great fanfare. Featuring an ensemble cast which includes Hareem Farooq, Ali Rehman Khan, Ahmed Ali Akbar, Usman Mukhtar and veteran actor Shafqat Cheema, the trailer indeed has left us wanting for more.
At first glance, the movie appears to be a slick entertainer with just the right mix of humour, music, romance and of course drama. Hareem Farooq in particular stands out as a badass gangster; certainly a refreshing change to see a female actor kicking some butt and being better at it than the boys!
The trailer also features a peppy number ‘Bilo Hai‘, choreographed by Osman Khalid Butt (more on that coming up!) which is likely to become a staple at mehndis during the upcoming shaadi season.
Although the movie seems like a fun entertainer, it appears that there is a conflict amongst the lead characters during the latter half which may slow down its pace.
Whether or not Parchi will manage to impress the audience is something we will obviously find out when it releases on January 5th, 2018 but we have definitely added it to our ‘Must Watch’ list!
Watch the trailer below, and tell us what you think!
