This film, Shaan Shahid’s directorial Arth – The Destination and it revolved around a writer Uzma (played by Uzma Hassan) and how her life is thrown upside down when her film-maker husband (Mohib Mirza) falls in love with the superstar Humaima (Humaima Malick). She then begins a friendship with singer Ali (played by Shaan himself).
This movie is an average remake for the Mahesh Bhatt’s classic Arth released in 1982. Shaan has got the music and the cinematography right but still it is no way comparable to the classic released in ‘82.
Moreover, this movie revolved around how human relationships are altered over the course of life. And how can this be turned around with some people entering life and different people over-lapping in relationships. It was a good effort done by the Pakistani Cinema altogether for the quality, acting skills and especially the music; which was the highlight of the film.
The movie watcher generation is the new generation group; the cast looked very glamorous yet hot, however, this cast is considered to be ‘not-the-new-generation’ hence neither the new generation knows this cast that well nor they prefer seeing this cast in a three hour film.
Shaan’s screen time was inconsiderably too high for this film; other co-actors could have also utilized the on-screen time well. Moreover, the dialogue delivery was expected to be better and the sequence of the film should have had a flow for the climax and finish, rather than being old school and slower than usual. We love how Shaan acts but are certainly not happy with his direction.
