WAAR – The upcoming Pakistani Movie

WAAR – The upcoming Pakistani Movie

In the past few years we have seen an improvement in the Pakistani Cinema. This improvement has been reflected through the earlier movies like “Khuda ke Liay” and “BOL” which were mega hits in the country as well as in India and Dubai. Another such project WAAR is on its way to hit the Pakistani cinemas.  WAAR is being directed by Bilal Lashari who has shot this first full-length feature in collaboration with ISPR. The film has been produced by MindWorks Media with Hunt Lowry, producer of Donnie Darkoand Warner Bros.’s smash hit “A Walk to Remember” and numerous other well known films.

Waar is an action/thriller and drama film, written by Hassan Waqas Rana and stars Pakistan’s finest actors, Shaan Shahid and Shamoon Abbasi, otherwise the rest of the cast are brand new actors. The storyline has been inspired by the war on terror in Pakistan and its effects on the world but with a much stylized interpretation of it. There have been many Hollywood movies which have dealt with the same issue including Syriana (2005) and A Mighty Heart (2007), but most of them failed to portray the situation properly except for Syriana which received generally positive reviews.

The English-language film (Waar) has been shot at various locations in and outside of Pakistan, from the beautiful hills of Islamabad, scenic locations in Lahore and the fascinating valley of Swat in the Northern Areas of Pakistan, where a major military operation was launched two years ago. But most of the scenes and script are based around locations in Islamabad. Some parts of the film have also been shot in Istanbul, Turkey.

We are looking forward to another of our own films that can receive cricital acclaim the world over. Ali Azmat and Meysha Shaffi being a part of the film is an additional advantage for creating the hype of the film among people.
