The digital platform has surely attracted Pakistani filmmakers which is why numerous projects are in the pipeline for the web including Pakistan’s first psychological thriller series titled The Ending. The poster for this series was released earlier this year and everyone was anticipating what it has in store and now, the first trailer is finally out.
Directed, written and produced by Haseeb Abbasi, this series features Hassan Niazi, Laila Zuberi, Faizan Shaikh, Omar Abdullah Khan and the director himself. The first chapter of this series is based on a book which has no end, however, whatever is written in it, turns into reality.
In the trailer, we see that Hassan’s character submits an extensive study about the human mind which he claims would change the future of psychological studies. But, to prove this, a subject is needed to conduct an experiment and from the looks of it, it seems the story is about the experiment and how it will impact the subject in different ways, psychologically.
The story seems unique and engaging despite many technical glitches. The cinematography though, not top-notch, the narrative might outshine these shortcomings.
Whether the series will release on YouTube or elsewhere, the filmmaker is yet to confirm. The release date of The Ending is not announced.
What are your thoughts about the first trailer?
