Sunset/Sunrise – #iGraphy

Recently I’ve been introduced to the #iGraphy – photography link up via the Noor Unnahar’s blog at Noor’s Place. So after seeing her recent post, I thought I should give it a try and this week my theme will be Sunset/Sunrise. I just love the sunset/sunrise they are the signs of the beginning and the ending of the day. Clouds play important part during sunset/sunrise cos they add more drama to them. It is such a beautiful display of the nature, the changing color hues, cool breeze and the shifting thin clouds which makes a perfect sunsets/sunrise. So here I’ll be sharing some of my best sunset/sunrise photos captured at different locations. Usually I captured Sunrises during our Astrophotography trips to the interior Sindh or at my friend’s building roof which gives perfect 360 view of the city. The best thing about those Astrophotography trips to the interior Sindh that we can see the sunrise from the horizon which is difficult to find in the urban city.

Premiere of ‘Wrong No.’ takes place in Karachi, a movie by YNH Films & ARY Films

True to its promise of guaranteed laughter, the premiere of ‘Wrong No.’ in Karachi enticed and entertained audience with comedy and action. Yasir Nawaz’s silver screen directorial debut has proven to be the most hilarious film of the year. A YNH FILMS production and released by ARY Films is a true representation of the creative mockery the Pakistani industry is capable of.

The quirky and upbeat satire of ‘Wrong No.’ will keep its audience spell bound and glued to their seats. Yasir Nawaz, renowned for his acting and direction on television, on his debut as director & producer from YNH Films said “The entire team of ‘Wrong No.’ has worked with immense passion and dedication with the core intention of making the audience leave with a smile on their face after watching the film.

The catchy music of the film composed by Wiqar Ali is a favorite amongst the young and old alike and easy to remember lyrics for ‘Wrong No.’ penned by Mohsin Ali. The movie encompasses a number of songs that have colorful cinematography and brilliant choreography by Zahid Hussain.

Salman Iqbal, Founder & President, ARY Digital Network said at the occasion “Pakistani projects such as ‘Wrong No.’ are a reason of immense pride and joy for ARY Films. ‘Wrong No.’ symbolizes a journey of excellence in Pakistani Cinema by being the first comedy movie of the year.”

On 15th July premiere of Wrong No. held at Nueplex Cinemas which was attended by the whole cast of the film and many other socialites and celebrities including Ali Safina, Hira Tareen, Saba Hameed, Ayesha Omer, Urwa Hocane, Farhan Saeed, Neelum Muneer, Sarwat Gilani, Nadia Hussain, Sadaf Kanwal, Javeria Abbasi.

Wrong No. is a directorial debut of Yasir Nawaz and produced by YNH Films and ARY Films in Pakistan. There is a good amount of buzz about the movie these days on all social media platforms. So I was super excited for this movie.

By the look at the poster, it looks like a love triangle between Danish Taimoor, Sohai Ali and Janita Asma but it is not. Danish Taimoor played double role in the movie. One is Sallu, who is a son of butcher and trying to escape his family to become an actor while his lookalike Sheheryar is a son of a business tycoon.

Javed Sheikh played Sallu’s father role and the audience had a laugh riot whenever he appeared on the screen. Sohai Ali Abro is Sallu’s neighbor who is madly in love with him while Janita Asma is a confused secretary at the Sheheryar’s company.

Danish Nawaz and his gang has done great job to make people laugh with their punch lines, especially his dialogue ‘Kuch Nahi Hua’.

Shafqat Cheema played a villain in this movie but he has a very small screen time.

There are 6 songs in the movie. Tooba Siddiqui has made guest appearance in the song ‘Jhannan Jhannan’ which was shot beautifully while ‘Selfiyaan’ will be the most popular song of the movie cos it has catchy lyrics.

I think Wrong No. will beat Bin Roye on the Box Office cos its already leading all the way Advance Status in Pakistan.

Overall it was fun watching it. I didn’t feel like I was watching some comedy drama. Yasir Nawaz has done a great job. Best thing about the movie was audience was laughing till the end. During Eid holidays people want entertainment and this movie has got it all.

One word review of Wrong No. ‘funtastic’

Rating: 4/5
