For the audience sick and tired of the same stories and genre on TV, the Pakistani short films on the web are a breath of fresh air. They bring nostalgia, love, horror, mystery, comedy. They can delve into every genre. And since they do not NEED 40 minutes episodes and a gazillion episodes, they do not need to play safe to get the worth for their money. In short, the creators and the artists have more free ground to play with.
Here are a few short features that offer you complete entertainment. Have a look!
1. Paying Guest stars Saifee Hassan & Muneeb Butt
Paying guest is about a young man searching for a house to be the paying guest. There he meets an interesting woman who seems a bit mysterious. Things take a turn when he meets the resident of the house. He tells him the woman is not human.
I will not tell you the whole story, but I can promise you that this was not the only twist in the story. It kept me on the edge of the street, for one. Paying Guest is a horror thriller, be sure to check it out.
2. Ab Buss starring Sanam Saeed
Starring Sanam Saeed, Ab Buss is intriguing. You keep trying to grab onto what genre it belongs to. At one point, I even thought Sanam Saeed is part of a crime, the way she was trying on burqa (But that could be the ‘Churails’ influence on me). How else do you justify Sanam’s significant collection of knives? But in the end, the film had a powerful message embedded in it. And watching the end, one wants to watch it all again with that new perspective. And then every act of Sanam has such a different meaning.
3. Champa Chambeli with Salman Shahid
Champa and Chambeli tackle two genuine phenomena: fake accounts and the other, the Pakistan-India friendship. Not just these but a little more than that. It discusses the economic conditions of people on the ground due to COVID lockdown, it talks about lonely senior citizens, and it also brings on what makes content go viral. It is a fun friendship between two individuals that sweeten the atmosphere.
4. Ammi Jaan with Gul e Rana
Ammi Jaan has a magical touch in its storyline. It says that our dead are in the graveyards; they become friends with each other and wait for their loved ones to visit. But due to the busy lives of the living, they have to keep on writing. Big names are associated with this short film, which should be o your must-watch list because even though it is supernatural, it brings tears to your eyes.
Featuring Aijaz Aslam, Chambeli is entirely different from Champa Chambeli. Once again, with an epic twist, exciting visuals, and gripping storyline, it keeps one hooked.
If you are stuck at home due to smart lockdowns or are working from home, these short features will be the perfect entertainment for you.
