There are many films that will hit our cinema screens this Eidul Fitr but there are only few that will wow the public with their storyline, cast, music and star power and grab people's attention. Film Parde Mein Rehne Do aims to do just that as its cheery yet gripping story had us watching the official trailer on loop. It wasn't just Hania Aamir's yellow sari but the chemistry between her and Ali Rehman Khan in the film that we wish we had seen before.

The official trailer and music from the film launched on Friday (Feb 25) in Karachi with many stars at the premiere event, including TV show hosts Nida Yasir and Sanam Jung and actors Adnan Siddiqui, Humayun Saeed, Ushna Shah, Vasay Chaudhry, Feroze Khan, Areeba Habib, Yashma Gill and Zhalay Sarhadi. Musicians Bilal Maqsood, Ali Tariq and Yashal Shahid were also present at the event.

After a glamorous shoot on the red carpet, the cast took their seats on stage and who better to host the star-studded event than Pawri girl herself? Sinf-e-Aahan actor Dananeer steered the conversation, beckoning the cast to take turns and talk about the film and the experience of shooting the film itself.

After a round of passing the mic, the screen came to life with Parde Mein Rehne Do's trailer demanding the audience's full attention with its dynamic dialogues and upbeat music, containing a glimpse of Aamir's dance number in the film.

Parde Mein Rehne Do is a romantic comedy with Aamir and Khan as leads. Directed and produced by Wajahat Rauf, Shazia Wajahat and Zayed Sheikh, the film appears to tackle the issue of impotence and how a Pakistani couple deals with it. From family pressure to desi nuskhay [desi solutions] to the stress levels between the couple on the rise, the movie covers it all with a comedic element even in the more serious scenes.

The plot feels like a refreshing addition to the Pakistani film scene as it sheds light on an issue that's prevalent in our society yet not discussed as much as it should be. What's more is that both sides of the situation seem to be showcased — the desire to go seeking the advice of pir babas for help and the flip side where the couple decides to get tested to understand where the problem lies. And then there is the aftermath where Aamir's character decides to leave her husband because of this turn of events.

We're expecting a number of Pakistani films this year, from Mohib Mirza's Ishrat Made in China to Imran Ashraf's Dum Mastam. It seems like we will be spoiled for choice this Eid.
