Epk recently broke the news about a movie starring Ali Azmat and Jawed Sheikh in the lead roles called Rock and Raag. Among a lot of other promising movies announced for release this year, Rock and Raag seems to be a novel addition.
Rock and Raag will be a musical rom-com directed by Anjum Chandna based on the neverending rivalry between classical singing and popular music; hence Rock and Raag. One can already expect that Jawed Sheikh would play a classical Ustaad and Ali Azmat would portray a fictionalized version of himself (a Rockstar).
The film also stars debutante Ali Ansari and actress Maryam Nafees who was previously seen in Hijrat. The film is being produced by FM Productions.
After acing a radio show as an RJ, Ali Ansari has proven himself in the field of acting in hit drama serials like Khaani, Naqab Zan, Mohabbat Na Karyo and Babban Khala ki Bahuein. Similarly, Maryam has been impressive in serials like Kam Zarf, Mohabbat Na Kariyo, Dil Kya Kare and Yaariyan.
With a fresh cast, and an unconventional storyline, the film promises something different for the audiences and the Pakistan film industry. If pulled off well, this could well be added to the list of great comedy films from Pakistan.
