Bachaana Trailer: What this new Pakistani film seems to be offering

Entertainment-Entertainment-Entertainment! Yes, this is what Bachaana trailer offers you.

Mohib Mirza Sanam Saeed at trailer launch Bachaana

Bachaana is an upcoming Pakistani movie, which is all set to be released in cinemas across Pakistan on February 26, 2016. Trailer of the film was launched on January 5, 2016 in a ceremony held in Karachi. It is safe to say that Bachaana’s trailer alone has created a lot of hype. There are many reasons behind the success of Bachaana Trailer. It is a Sanam Saeed starrer (oh yes! The Zindagi Gulzar Hai girl). We have Mohib Mirza in the film too (Yes, the one who is respected for his choice of projects). We do have Adeel Hashmi in the film too. But this is not all. There are many other, much more important reasons for the success of Bachaana Trailer. The biggest of them all is the “director’s taking”. Being a crazy movie viewer myself, I hardly miss any Hollywood, Bollywood or Pakistani film released in Pakistan. The biggest negative of recent Pakistani films is, the directors are not very clear about the difference between the medium of TV and films. While I am aware of how talented these directors are, I do have an opinion that many of them need to make a few movies before they can qualify as “good film directors”. Nasir Khan has shown a difference here. The frames he has chosen, the locale, the style (yes, the taking!) is that which is suitable for the silver screen.

Reviewing the trailer as a critic, it is fair to say that the movie does not seem to be a typical masala entertainer, but it does seem to be an enjoyable feat. The best part of this trailer is, dialogues. We have dialogues in the trailer which are already catching up. “Dhoni ki fan ho?…. Nahin, Afridi ki…” this sentence might seem simple, but in a cricket crazy nation like ours, it is really cheesy and catchy at the same time. The last dialogue in the trailer is an instant hit “Larki Hindustani ho ya Pakistani, Larki, Larki hoti hai”. It goes with the social norms we have in sub-continent.

Sanam Saeed, Mohib Mirza, Bachaana

Other than the dialogues, what attracts the attention is that the glimpses of action sequences do not seem out of place. Lead pair appears to have good chemistry. Camera work looks good. The locales chosen look really nice. Overall, the trailer of Bachaana can be rated at 8 out of 10. Hopefully, the film will be as good as the trailer.

Pakistani Cinema: Review of Pakistani movies of 1990s


The 1990s decade was a period of ups and downs for the Pakistani film industry. The industry had suffered great loss as the Islamization policy along with the introduction of VCR and influx of Indian movies in the market restricted the growth of the industry. During this period, directors like Syed Noor continued to struggle to produce movies that kept the Pakistani film industry breathing. Syed Noor’s ventures include Qasam (1993) the story of a boy affected by his parent’s separation.
