Checkout the review by senior journalist, Maliha Rehman!⬇️ #Repost @maliharehman1 with @get_repost ・・・ Smitten by the picture-perfect beauty of #AsimRaza’s #PareyHutLove, where every scene is a visual treat, the songs are catchy, the costumes are gorgeous and the very good-looking cast delivers so well – #SheheryarMunawar is the quintessential chocolate hero, #MayaAli reasserts her strength as the ideal chick-flick heroine, #AhmedAliButt is a pro (as ever) at comedy and the vivacious #ZaraNoorAbbas proves her mettle (she is fast becoming a favourite of mine). But whisk all these ingredients together and yet, #PHL couldn’t have been the entertainer that it is without director Asim Raza’s flair for telling beautiful, feel-good movies. Take a bow, @asimrazatvf – this is your win, more than anything else. I couldn’t be happier – have always rooted for you! 🎉 (And I know that this review comes late but I couldn’t attend the premiere because I was stranded at home thanks to the Karachi rains. Then, the madness of Eid took over. I am so glad that I went to see it today, though – Parey Hut Love was well worth the wait! Need to go see it again now with my girl gang!)

A post shared by WRONG NO.2 (@wrongno.2_official) on

Wrong No.2 is a rom-com. It is the sequel to the 2015 film Wrong No. The film portrays the love story of a wealthy girl named Zoya (Neelam Munir). Who falls in love with a man who goes by Omar (Sami Khan).

Omar hails from a miserly background, far below Zoya’s financial status. Not your average ‘the princess and the pauper fairytale’. All goes into disarray when a former lover makes an appearance.

4. Chhalawa (PKR 180 million)

Armed with a good plot, Wajahat Rauf ventured bravely into rural Punjab, where Zoya (Mehwish Hayat) lives with her father, Chaudary Rafaqat (Mehmood Aslam), her sister Haya (Zara Noor Abbas) and her brother Haroon (Aashir Wajahat).

Zoya is in love with Sameer (Azfar Rehman) but her father has decided she must marry her cousin, Jalal Chaudary (Mohsin Ejaz). Enter Luqman (Asad Siddiqui), the pir sahib who is entrusted with the job of making Zoya fall out of love with Sameer.

5. Sherdil (PKR 130 million)

Director Azfar Jafri made sure to add that certain spark in the movie Sherdil which s a high octane fueled movie about Haris Mustafa’s pursuit of a decorated military career.

All the while facing overwhelming challenges in his personal life. Played by the ever charismatic Mikaal Zulfiqar who meets his match with Flight Lieutenant Arjun Veerani.

6. Baaji (PKR 120 million)

The movie revolves around a senior former Lollywood actor, Shameera, (Meera) who is being cut from movies due to her age but she refuses to give up her career.

She finds a companion in Neha (Amna Ilyas), a simple beautician who becomes her manager, excelling at her job to such an extent that Shameera is seen returning to the spotlight.

It’s when a Hollywood director Rohail (Osman Khalid Butt) expresses his desire to work with Shameera in hopes to revive Lollywood that we find out just how insecure and jaded the industry has made her.

Forever afraid of losing her place or being usurped, she projects her insecurities on Neha.

7. Laal Kabootar (PKR 32 million)

Laal Kabootar is the tale of Adeel (Ahmed Ali) and Aliya (Mansha Pansha), two Karachiites who live in very different worlds. Adeel is a taxi driver and a petty criminal who wants to go to Dubai in search of greener pastures.

Aliya is the widow of a murdered journalist Noman Malik (Ali Kazmi). Even when her mother tells her to travel to the United States with her, Aliya chooses to stay in Karachi to avenge her husband’s murder.
