The revival of Pakistani cinema continues as indie filmmakers start to bring new revolutionary ideas and concepts to revive the almost dead film industry of Pakistan. With films like Waar, Bol, Khuda ke Liye, Zinda Bhaag, the local cinemas are witnessing complete sell out for Pakistani films which was something of an impossible task for more than two decades. The mentioned films highlighted the negatives of the country due to its disturbing security and religious affairs, however, Yasir Jaswal, under the production label, REDRUM Films in association with Jaswal Films and Sermad Films is directing a first of its kind feature film of Pakistan known as “Jalaibee”.
Jalaibee is promised to be a comedy/thriller shot on the state of the art ARRI Alexa HD camera; the same camera that was used to shoot recent blockbusters like Gravity, Skyfall, and Ironman 3. Written and directed by Yasir Jaswal, the movie boasts a young, star-studded cast that includes the charismatic Adnan Jaffar, energy power-house and RJ Ali Safina, TV superstar Danish Taimoor, theater actor and singing sensation Uzair Jaswal, VJ, model and International heart-throb Wiqar Ali khan, and the gorgeous TV and ramp sensation Zhalay Sarhadi. Jaswal focuses on enticing the audiences with stylized eye-pleasing visuals, powerful sound design, engaging dialogue and great contemporary music. With Yasir Jaswal’s musical background, audiences can expect ‘Jalaibee’ to be accompanied by a brilliant contemporary soundtrack that features about 10 tracks from artists such as Qayyas, Uzair Jaswal and Humaira Arshad to name a few.
Jalaibee is rumoured to release in summer of 2014 and will not only play in all major cinemas across Pakistan, but the producers are also in talks with international distributors for a simultaneous international release in the US, UK and UAE. ARY Films will be distributing the film in Pakistan. Whereas, overseas distribution will be managed by Boom Media Networks.
