Pakistani upcoming films London Nahi Jaunga and Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad are set to release this Eid-ul-Azha. The Lollywood films will face a stiff competition as Hollywood and Marvel Studio’s Thor: Love And Thunder will open in cinemas around Eid as well.
Pakistani filmmakers are having a hard time getting people to watch their latest projects. Recently, the Eid-ul-Fitr releases like Parde Mein Rehne Do and Dum Mastam had low box office numbers. Marvel Studio’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was too much for the local films.
It appears the same fate lies ahead for Humayun Saeed and Mehwish Hayat starrer London Nahi Jaunga. The film will compete in cinemas against Thor: Love And Thunder starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman. Mahira Khan and Fahad Mustafa’s Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad also face the same dilemma.
The filmmakers hope to make ‘big bucks’ during the Eid festivities but majority of fans are more drawn towards any and all Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) projects.
Written by Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar with director by Nadeem Baig, the film is a breezy family drama, with comedy and romance. According to Humayun Saeed, the film is completely different from Punjab Nahi Jaungi starring Mehwish Hayat. Cast includes Kubra Khan, Vasay Chaudhary, Sohail Ahmed and Gohar Rasheed.
Director Nabeel Qureshi’s crime comedy revolves around Fahad Mustafa channeling his inner “Chulbul Pandey” as a no-nonsense cop. On the other hand, Mahira Khan’s character is more than just a “damsel in distress”.
