Lately it seems like Pakistani cinema is back with a bang and is here to stay! This statement feels more true to fact after watching the period film Mah-e-Mir.
Mah-e-Mir, a story of a poet that showcases the struggle of a contemporary poet ‘Mir’. It is not a typical masala entertainer. Starring Fahad Mustafa, Iman Ali, Sanam Saeed, Alyy Khan and Manzar Sehbai in lead roles; the film revolves around the life of a modern day anarchist poet named Jamal who is going through a rough patch in life. The movie draws parallels between Jamal’s and Mir Taqi Mir’s life at a lot of points with the story jumping from present day to the past in Jamal’s mind as he imagines himself to be Mir Taqi Mir. Focusing on the trying times that Mir once experienced in the city of Lucknow.
Veteran actress, Iman Ali, not only looks stunning in her apparel but also delivers a strong performance as Mehtab, the love interest of Mir; making it hard to take your eyes off her.
According to unconfirmed reports, Mah-e-Mir Box Office Collection on the 1st day is almost 1 crore from the major cities of Pakistan. You would be missing out on a major release of the year if you don’t go to see this movie. If you have already, let us know what you think of it in the comment section below!
