Janaan and Parchi famed producers unveiled the first look of the poster of their upcoming feature film Heer Maan Ja yesterday. The film stars Ali Rehman Khan and Hareem Farooq in lead roles and is helmed by Azfar Jaffri.
While Hareem Farooq’s glamorous attire paired with snickers reminded us of Julia Robert’s Runaway Bride, the poster was unarguably very desi.
What grabbed our attention the most, was the title “Heer Maan Ja”. There are very rare occasions when a film releases only its poster and its title manages to grab your attention. Well with the title, the makers have hit the right chords in our hearts however it is now down to the film’s content. Will the film be able to do justice to its title? Will the story be an inspired romantic comedy, amalgamating both western and Desi flavors? Or will it be something more original? Will it live up to its name and fulfill its much needed quota of Desi?
Film is slated for Eid ul Azha release which is worrisome as this will be the 4th film to release on Eid ul Azha. Nevetheless, we are very much excited about the upcoming films.
