Eid Ul Fitr 2023 is shaping up to be a film release extravaganza even more than that of 2022. Five films have been locked for official release. With a rumor that one or two more may be on the cards.
Eidul Fitr is one of the most happening times for the Pakistani movie industry. It’s avid viewers as most films are released on the two days of Eid. Like every year, a few exciting local movies hit the big screen. This Eid Ul Fitr 2023 has so many options in its bag to entertain people.
From romance to action to hysterical heists and some local Punjabi tadka. There’s a lot to look forward to on-screen this Eid.
Huey Tum Ajnabee
“Huey Tum Ajnabee” is directed by veteran film star Kamran Shahid and based on true events surrounding the 1971 Pakistani civil war which resulted in the creation of Bangladesh.
The film stars Samina Peerzada as Indira Gandhi, Adnan Jilani as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, and Mehmood Aslam as Sheikh Mujib Ur Rehman. It also stars Shafqat Cheema, Sadia Khan, Mikaal Zulfiqar, Shamoon Abbasi, Ayesha Omar, Alyy Khan and Sohail Ahmed.
The film stands a real chance of minting big bucks at the box office.
Dorr On Eid Ul Fitr 2023
Nadeem Cheema’s Dorr is an action-packed romantic drama with the hero saving his ladylove from vicious men. Along with romantic songs, the movie is full of violence, guns and fighting scenes.
The movie stars Asad Mahmood, Shafqat Cheema, Saleem Meraj, Aslam Hassan, Waseem Ali, Rashid Mahmood, Sardar Kamal, Azhar Rangeela, Ch Shahbaz, Arooj Chaudhry, Hafsa Rajput, Sidra Noor, Kamran Mujahid, Imran Ahmed, Ameer Ali, Ali Khan, Faiz Chuhan and Achi Khan.
Daadal” is the latest film in Abu Aleeha’s already long filmography. It stars Sony Hussyn, Shamoon Abbasi, and Mohsin Abbas Haider among others. The film’s teaser provides glimpses into the gang and police conflict and presents Sonya Hussyn in a very different avatar, subverting the heroine trope lime Abu Aleeha had already done with Ayesha Omar in “Javed Iqbal”.
Knowing Abu Aleeha’s track record, the film will more than make its budget back and may even be a hit at the box office.
There will be a few single-screen Punjabi movies releasing this Eid, however, the only big-budget one is Lahore Qalandar, which brings the old standard Punjabi-style story with a lot of raunchy action. Directed by Shahid Rana, it stars Saima Noor, along with Banto Butt, Shafqat Cheema and Shehryar Cheema.
Money Back Guarantee
The biggest Eid-ul-Fitr release of 2023 is the multi-starrer “Money Back Guarantee”. Written and directed by comedian Faisal Qureshi, the film is a heist caper which seems to parody not just the popular “Money Heist”, but also the genre of heist movies itself.
Starring Fawad Khan, Waseem Akram and Shaniera Akram, John Rambo, Mani, Javed Sheikh and many, many others, the film looks like it could rake in 50 crore easily.
