After an almost two-year hiatus, Project Ghazi is set to return to screens on March 29.
Originally intended to release in July 2017, the film was pulled from screens right after its premiere when it failed to reach the standards it aimed for.
Humayun Saeed, one of the film's leads, says that intended release doesn't count. "The film was just screened once back then. Project Ghazi is releasing for the first time on 29 March. We rushed it then but hopefully when you watch it now, you'll see the quality of the work we've done and it's on par with International standards."
He admitted, "When I saw the film earlier, you couldn't understand the dialogues, the dubbing wasn't done properly. And that's very important. All my films, we've done dubbing for those. We've redone the music and sound all over again this time around so what was missing before, it's there now."
"Initially when it was screened, people said it looked good but the sound had major issues so we stopped it from releasing. I've watched it now and the dubbing and sound quality is great so I'm confident that people who liked it at the first screening, they will love it now."
Producer Ali Raza also revealed, "Filmmaking is complex process. We're an emerging industry, everyone goes through issues, it's just something that needs time and patience. What I've learnt through this whole experience is sabr."
Talking about Ghazi, Syra Shahroz shared that she too is looking forward to 29 March: "I'm really excited and very hopeful about the movie and I think you guys will enjoy it as well. What's been done differently this time is that it's a complete product now, it wasn't complete back then, There were a lot of technical issues which have all been worked on now."
The lead cast also includes Sheharyar Munawar and Adnan Jaffar, who plays a masked villain named Qattan. Project Ghazi was scheduled to release on March 23 but was postponed to March 29 to avoid a clash with Sherdil and Laal Kabootar.
