Glitz, glamour, comedy and a bold social issue, “Parde Mein Rehne Do” trailer is out now and it has all the ingredients of a potential hit.
The trailer depicts a comic take on a married couple under societal and family pressure to produce a child more commonly referred as geving a “Khushkhabri”, thus bringing the issue of male impotency in limelight in a first for new wave of Pakistani cinema. It sees the couple fighting their own internal insecurities and the vulnerabilities they face in such a situation at the hands of society.
As expected from a Wajahat Rauf directorial, the trailer boasts striking set designs, gag lines and colorful dance numbers promising a paisa wasool entertainer. What makes “Parde Mein Rehne Do” different from Wajahat’s previous films is an educative aspect, courtesy the script by Mohsin Ali.
While it is encouraging to see taboo subjects being dealt in films finally, the film might not be able to attract families over its exhibition on Eid because of the symptomatic trailer quite evident of open discussions on “Mardana Kamzori” which might be deemed inappropriate by families to watch together. Which is why, we believe a non Eid release might have been better for the film.
While we are sure the film will deliver at entertainment front, whether it will be able to handle the sensitive subject it deals remains to be seen. But for now, the trailer has left us intrigued and quite hopeful of the end product.
