Upcoming Pakistani film 8969

The teaser trailer for upcoming Pakistani film 8969 is out and features the versatile Saba Qamar.

Directed by Azeem Sajjad in collaboration with AJ Productions, the film stars Saba Qamar, Hussain Tiwana, Sadaf Hamid, Azeem Sajjad and Anam Malik among others.

Sajjad has been in the industry for over two decades and has done well, mostly directing and producing Pushto television serials. His drama, Za Pakhtoon Yum (I am Pakhtoon), which aired on AVT Khyber, received the most recognition.

Rumours spread that Saba Qamar would perform an item number titled “Mastani” for the movie, but the actor denied all speculations. The trailer has not revealed much about the storyline. Judging by the appearance of it, the film seems to be a murder mystery/thriller with a romantic subplot. However, it appears to be a typical Lollywood project with limited substance.

“When I do dramas, housewives relate to me. I don’t think they will continue to feel the same about me once I perform on an item song,” she said in an interview.

She further added that Mehwish Hayat and Humaima Malik have faced scrutiny for doing item numbers.

However, a video of the song “Mastani” went viral soon after her statement.

Even though it’s still too early to come to a conclusion, 8969 looks unimpressive for the most part.

With movies like Operation 021 and Na Maloom Afraad coming out, Pakistani cinema is stepping into a more refined era of film making, and if this trailer is an accurate reflection of the movie as a whole, 8969 does not seem like it’s going to come close to that category.
