With an Outpour of Reviews for the Movies Released in Pakistan this Eid, Heer Maan Ja Clearly Wins Over the Masses!

Published

Our social media handles have been filled with pictures and videos of Ali Rehman Khan and Hareem Farooq for weeks now and we knew what the hype was all about – the hugely awaited film Heer Maan Ja was ready to hit the cinemas and we couldn’t have been more excited about it.

The film finally got released along with the other two Eid movie releases in Pakistan last week and Heer Maan Ja, despite of being assumed as the underdog among the three, soared through! Even though critics from the film industry had been expecting the other two movies to give it a tough competition, Heer Maan Ja received an overwhelming response from the crowds that was evident with all the reviews that began pouring in all over the internet from the very first night of its release.

Not just the reviews, but the film has also gotten great ratings from different online forums and is clearly taking the lead there. They crossed Rs. 3.5+ crores within three days of the release, and the numbers keep rising each passing day, since the cinema houses are mostly running houseful.

Heer Maan Ja is a project of IRK Films and Arif Lakhani Films and features Ali Rehman Khan and Hareem Farooq in the lead as Heer and Kabeer – the duo that falls in love during their college years but have to separate under the pressure of family and ambitions. However, many years later, and under odd circumstances, they cross each other’s paths again and their reunion is followed by a series of complications that showcase a whole lot of comedy, romance and thrill.

The film also includes Faizan Sheikh as the infamous Wajdaan, the villain in the movie who creates all kinds of problems for the two. Mojiz Hasan plays Jerry, Kabeer’s adorable side-kick who tries his best to make the people around him happy, while Shumayale Khattak has given an intriguing personality to the character of Ramsey.

From the cinematography of the film, the music featured in it, the dresses, makeup and outlook of the characters, to the fantastic storyline, the pacing and script of the film and the way it has been directed and shot – Heer Maan Ja has received multitudes of praises in all aspects and it seems like it has become a incredible success within no time.

Heer Maan Ja has increased industry benchmarks when it comes to Pakistani films. It is a valuable contribution to the local film industry, and it would surely play a huge role in helping it advance further by leaps and bounds.

“Beyond Wonder Women”- A Facebook Initiative to Promote Body Positivity

Published

on

Beyond Wonder Women is the brainchild of Minahil Kashif, a Law graduate from the University of London. She struggled with all the things that a normal Pakistani girl has to go through when it comes to the concept of a “perfect body”. Minahil used body-shaming as fuel and a reason to start Pakistan’s first fitness and motivational group that promotes the idea of women of all ages, race and ethnicity to come together and live a positive and healthy life.
The initiative “Beyond Wonder Women” aims to help our nation unlearn the concept of “perfect body” by promoting self-love, along with encouraging to be healthy and discouraging them to come down to society’s unnecessary expectations.
Beyond Wonder Women strives to provide women a safe space. Their Instagram promotes fitness and health while they work on the community’s mental health and well-being through their Facebook group in order to maintain privacy.
Amongst other wonder women is  Maryam Feroz (@25vectors) who has produced content that has helped them achieve many milestones in a short span of time which include crossing 1000+ members on their Facebook group and getting shoutouts from international trainers such as @chontelduncan and @stephaniesanzo.

A Model-Turned-Actress Still at the Peak of her Performance; Sadia Khan!

Published

on

Sadia Khan is a name that needs no introduction. The star has made sure she leaves an impression on the audiences with her charming on-screen persona and acting mettle both in the world of modeling and acting. Famed for one of the top performances of her career in Khuda Aur Mohabbat, this starlet has a lot of achievements under her name, and that isn’t all that makes her special.

Starting her career with modeling, this actor-turned-model was destined to be more than just a model. Launched in 2011 in various dramas and ramps, Sadia Khan’s personality and talent have been rather irrepressible. She’s covered countless magazines, starred in numerous dramas, modeled for Pakistan’s biggest brands; in short, there isn’t any territory the actress hasn’t explored. Not to mention, she has made one of the more successful model-to-television and movie star transitions in the Pakistani entertainment industry, like her magnetic performance in Khuda Aur Muhabbat (2011), Naina Syed in Laa (2014), Umm-e-Hani in Shayad, (2017) and Maryam in Maryam Periera (2018). Khan also appeared in a film which is Abdullah: The Final Witness (2016).

But let’s not forget that she was—still is—a unique and remarkable model, as we were all reminded by her triumphant shoots for brands including Khaadi, Sapphire, Gul Ahmed, Sana Safinaz to posing for various other brands. She was the brand ambassador of Khaadi for 3 years, and the brand ambassador for Ufone for more than 2 years. Sadia Khan was modeling from an early age, spending her teens posing for photographs. She then made it as an actress, filling her resume with unconventional and unique roles. The triple threat performer is not only an actress and a model, but also a singer and songwriter. Is there anything that this star can’t do? We don’t think so.
