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

I’ve seen the first teaser of Moor back in 2013 at the Atrium Cinemas and I was blown away by the stunning direction by Jami.

Moor Film – Teaser from azadfilm co on Vimeo.

At the beginning Jami explains his movie. He told us that the movie is about the railway system of Balochistan, especially the closure of Zhob valley railways and how it effects people of Pakistan and it is based on a true story, Moor is a tale filled with emotions bound to strike a chord with every cinema goer at some level. The plot of the movie speaks of corruption in a manner to provoke the masses to take individualistic measures to combat the social evils prevalent in our society. Then Hameed Sheikh, Abdul Qadir, Shabbir Rana and Samiya Mumtaz shared their experiences about the movie. I love how Hameed Sheikh explains Moor

After that there was a Q&A session with the press. There was a question “Why there isn’t any entertainment in the movie, like some item number ?” And Nadeem Mandviwalla replied

Another question was for Samiya “What is the difference between your role in ‘Dukhtar’ & ‘Moor’ cos they both look same?” And she replied

Then there was a question about the music of the movie and Nadeem Mandviwalla replied

And in the end Nadeem Mandviwalla told us about his favorite dialogue from the Moor which explains everything about the movie.

Moor is all set to release on 14th August 2015 while music will release after Ramadan and I just can’t wait to see the spectacular beauty of Balochistan shot by Jami. More details about the movie can be found at www.moorthefilm.com

In a press conference to be held at a local restaurant in Lahore, the movie’s official song will be launched which has been sung by the vivacious singer, Shiraz Uppal who gained international acclaim for his melodious tracks like ‘Tera Te Mera’ and ‘Roya Re’. Uppal’s affiliation with the movie is a value addition, given his soft vocals and charismatic personality as far as the audience of ‘3-Bahadur’ is concerned.
