The only difference between Parchi and Arth 2/Chupan Chupai is the craftiness of its writer and director

The year 2018 has just begun and Pakistani cinema is all geared up with new releases for the new year. It is indescribable how good it feels to see our filmmakers trying their best in the capacity that they can, to keep producing films in a timely manner. Parchi is one film that created a lot of hype from the start, be it for Hareem Farooq’s fierce character, the catchy music, or the fact that this will be the first Lollywood film to be released in Saudi Arabia and France.

After Verna and Arth 2, Rangreza’s colourful and gripping trailer has left us anxiously waiting

This month, a lot of Pakistani potential blockbusters have released their trailers one after the other. First it was Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna, then Shaan Shahid’s Arth 2, and now the colourful trailer of Rangreza has struck our eyes.

Arth 2 looks visually appealing, glamourous and gripping enough for a successful run at the box office

I always feel that a trailer cannot be an evaluator for how a movie will turn out, like the saying goes, “do not judge a book by its cover”.
