Owing to the escalating tension between India and Pakistan, patriotism on both ends is at an all-time high. While India continues to propagate a war mongering narrative, Pakistan has maintained its stance of peace, clarifying that war is never the answer. Amidst the political upheaval, a patriotic-drama film SherDil is all set to release in cinemas across the country and will likely attract the audience in huge numbers.
Directed, written and produced by Nomaan Khan, the film stars Mikaal Zulfiqar, Armeena Rana Khan, Hassan Niazi and Sabeeka Imam in lead roles. Re-creating the 1965 Indo-Pak war, Mikaal is seen as a young man who joins the Pakistan Air Force [PAF] and finds his passion for serving the country. Dealing with the emotions of love, patriotism and passion this film aims to show the life of a man who joins the forces to protect his country, putting everything else in his life on a standstill.
Armeena will be playing Mikaal’s love interest while Hassan will be seen as an Indian Air Force pilot. Releasing ahead of Pakistan Day on March 22, the film comes at a time when the nationalistic sentiment is soaring up. And although it is a dramatic depiction of the war and resembles the narrative of last year’s blockbuster film Parwaaz Hai Junoon, it is likely to do decent business on the box-office owing to its relevance and timing of the release.
