Bilal Lashari’s film The Legend of Maula Jatt has been hugely awaited since its very announcement. The film’s buzz has been increasing over time and the entire film fraternity is anticipating the film to become a huge draw at the boxoffice. The film’s buzz multiplied due to the popular pairing of Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan while Hamza Ali Abbasi’s presence has also hugely contributed to the film’s buzz.
Hamza Ali Abbasi is playing the character of Noori Nath. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the actor’s strong screen presence? His brilliant expressions and his look completely bewitched us.
There is no doubt that Hamza Ali Abbasi is going to become the best Lollywood villain to come out of Pakistani cinema. Despite the fact that he is playing a negative role, his character still appealed to us. We can not wait to see him in the film, however even in the trailer, his presence definitely left a mark. His character is one that is going to be remembered for a long time.
Not only this, Hamza Ali Abbasi may give Fawad Khan a strong competition because who knows? He may just win over more fans than Fawad Khan himself! Its Maula Jatt VS Noori Nath in terms of who gives the better performance too! In addition, the character of Noori Nath is strong enough to overshadow Maula Jatt.
Also, if we talk about Hamza Ali Abbasi’s star power at the boxoffice, the actor has a very good record. He is the only star after Humayun Saeed to have two 30+ crore film in his kitty i.e. Jawani Phir Nahi Ani and Parwaaz Hai Junoon. He is a strong boxoffice contender! He has starred in four films and all four were hits.
On the other hand, everyone’s heartthrob Fawad Khan has not even given a 10cr film in Pakistan yet whereas Mahira Khan has failed to give any blockbuster. In contrast, Hamza Ali Abbasi has given three 20+ crore films i.e. Waar, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani and Parwaaz Hai Junoon. All three were massive blockbusters. Even though, Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan have a huge fan following but in terms of Boxoffice, it’s Hamza Ali Abbasi who is leading.
2019 appears to be a good year for Hamza Ali Abbasi generally. The actor will be returning to dramas as we will get to see him on Hum Tv, in an upcoming drama Alif and his upcoming film, The Legend of Maula Jatt is anticipated to grant him the honor of being the best or most loved villain of Lollywood!
