Just when we were hoping to see Sami Khan in a lighthearted comic role in Wrong No. 2, following his dramatic role in drama serial Inkaar, the trailer for Sami’s next film venture — Kaaf Kangana — is out and as the trailer rightfully claims, we are (shockingly) surprised!
Kaaf Kangana is Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s debut as a director in films. Well-known for writing the blockbuster Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Khalil has also written the feature film which is an ‘intense but incomplete love story of 1947, awaiting to be completed in 2019’. But we don’t seem to understand why and how even after watching the trailer. The film appears to be about a Pakistani Muslim played by Sami Khan who is in love with an Indian Hindu Kangana (played by Eshal Fayyaz). The two are star-crossed lovers as not only they have different faiths, but they belong to different nations as well.
The trailer is filled with sentimentality, dramatic dialogues, heavy makeup, eye lenses (yes, you’ve read it right) and an audio which sounds nothing like the voices of the actors on screen. The preview reminds us about the Lollywood era (and not the period we would like to be nostalgic about). There isn’t much that we were able to decipher from the trailer except the story is heavily based on India and Pakistan’s rivalry; all dialogues refer to that.
The film also stars Sajid Hassan, Ayesha Omar, Shafqat Cheema and Fiza Ali amongst many others. It also features a dance number by Neelam Muneer. Kaaf Kangana is slated to release on Eid ul Azha.
