After Na Maloom Afraad and Jalaibees, next on the agenda for Pakistani cinema is the ‘feel good’ film Ho Mann Jahaan, a coming-of-age drama about three university friends directed by Asim Raza.
The film stars Mahira Khan, Adeel Hussain and Shehryar Munawar in lead roles and includes notable names like Arshad Mehmood, Bushra Ansari, Nimra Bucha, Sonya Jehan, Jamal Shah and Munawar Siddiqui.
Ho Mann Jahaan is a story about three college friends – played by Mahira Khan, Sheheryar Munawar and Adeel Hussain – who belong to different social classes and are brought together by their undying love for music. The trailer is fresh, it’s colourful, it’s simply fantastic! The one-minute-44-second-long video features all the three leading characters of the film making music, singing songs, dancing, basically having lots and lots of fun.
Asim, who is also producing the film, said Ho Mann Jahaan is a “musical film not a musical”. The film’s music is definitely going to be a big hit considering it is coming from a long list of Pakistan’s finest musicians. Atif Aslam, Zeb Bangash, Fakhir Mehmood, Tina Sani, Gumby, Abu Mohammad, Farid Ayaz and Jimmy khan have all contributed to the film’s soundtracks.
“The album is amazing, it’s amazing. It’s not your commercial dhol, dhamaka. You will love the tracks,” Mahira told media.
Sheheryar Munawar, who not only has a lead role in the film but is also its co-producer, too shared his thoughts on the promo. “What you have seen in the trailer is not a fraction of what’s in the film obviously. We were really careful not to give away any part of the story. I am really excited and can’t wait for the film to release.”
The movie’s other lead character Adeel Hussain said, “The experience of working with Mahira and Sheheryar was wonderful. We were in very good hands. From our acting exercises to our training, everything was handled really well. Hopefully you will see that in the final result.”
The film is expected to release on Eidul Azha and besides the three main characters features Sonia Jahan, Bushra Ansari, Arshad Mehmood, Nimra Bucha and Jamal Shah in important roles.
