Parey Hut Love is an upcoming Pakistani romcom directed by Asim Raza, who made his directorial debut in the film industry with blockbuster Ho Mann Jahaan in 2016. It has been written by Imran Aslam and is based on the popular British film Four Weddings and a Funeral, released in 1994. Parey Hut Love has Sheheryar Munawar and Maya Ali playing the lead roles, with cameo appearances by Mahira Khan, Meera and Fawad Khan, amongst others. The film, which is scheduled for release on Eid Al-Adha, in August 2019, has just released its official trailer, which has an exciting look and feel.
The trailer opens with various visuals of grandeur, beautiful landscapes and wedding decorations. Sheheryar Munawar wakes up from a nightmare and then we see him introducing himself as a struggling actor, in search of a role, to an older man (Nadeem Baig). This is followed by scenes of his rehearsals at home with a co-actor and dance performances, and then it moves on to colourful wedding celebrations where we see Sheheryar complaining about society’s obsession with marriage, till his eyes rest on Maya Ali.
We then see Sheheryar courting Maya, trying to impress her with his poetry and taking her dancing and on road trips. But Maya warns him not to fall in love and then introduces him to her fiancé. Sheheryaar is seen questioning her about their relationship, followed by scenes of a funeral, Mahira’s Khan’s dance performance and a man drowning. The trailer ends with Fawad Khan giving advice on being successful: ‘entertain people, don’t teach them how to live.’
There is quite a lot happening in this trailer, which leaves you with mixed feelings but viewers can get an idea of the basic plot, the love story (which slightly reminds one of the storyline of Hindi film Dil To Pagal Hai). The film seems to have high production values and it would be interesting to see how the other elements of the story and characters come together to entertain the audience. In April, Mahira Khan had given viewers a sneak peek of her dance performance in the film, by sharing a teaser on social media, which was highly appreciated by her fans.
