The play stars Shamayale Khattak, Aymen Shuja Zuberi, Sardar Osman, Zainab Raja, Tayyab Anwar, Sarmad Bashir, Saiban Khaliq and Wasiq Ali Zia. A famous playwright, Mansoor Kalam, shares the secret “formula” of becoming a successful playwright in Pakistan. He shares this “formula” by giving examples of 3 of his award winning screenplays. While he shares this technique, he is confronted by an obsessed fan who makes Mansoor Kalam wonder; “Can a story, change someone’s life?” This is a story of a commercial playwright who writes meaningless and overly glamorized stories that only serve the purpose of making money.

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
