Pakistani cinema has had a few hits and misses last year and the sporadic releases in the past year have not given enough material for the audiences to watch and enjoy. However, this year is slightly better in terms of volume of releases and their variety as well.
Here Are Some Pakistani Films Releasing This Year

This year is a bit of mixed plate as well, with the magnum opus, Fawad and Mahira Khan starrer The Legend of Maula Jatt, mystery thriller indie film Laal Kabootar and a bunch of romantic comedies such as Tich Button, Heer Maan Ja and Wrong Number 2.

Here’s a quick look at the releases this year.

1. The Legend of Maula Jatt

Starring Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, the film is directed by Bilal Lashari (Waar) and produced by Ammara Hikmat. Fawad and Mahira have come together on the screen after many, many years and especially have made everyone super excited with their brilliant chemistry as seen in the trailer. We think this is gonna be a big one.

3. Superstar

Starring Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf (Janaan, Rangreza), the film is about the life of well, you guessed it, a superstar. Not a lot of details have been revealed about the film yet. But we’re guessing it won’t be something we can ignore with Mahira Khan at the helm and Hum TV (Bin Roye, Parwaz Hai Junoon) producing it.
