2013 brought good news that this year would be golden era for Pakistani cinema industry. Last year was the worst for Pakistani Film industry as there was no Pakistani Urdu language film released. There is possibility that this year big projects are going to be superhit which may revive Pakistani film industry.This year several projects are hoped to be super hit this year and Tamannais one of them.
The upcoming Pakistani movie TAMANNA seems to be an interesting project in the history of Pakistan film industry. Tamanna is the first Pakistani film that is being directed by a British director Steven Moore. The Sarah Tareen is the producer of the movie Tamanna. Sarah Tareen is a brilliant producer who has also experience of working with ShoaibMansoor in the Blockbuster filmKhuda Kay Liye. It is Pakistan’s first noir film produced by Concordia productions (PVT) limited.
Well experienced and internationally acclaimed Pakistani actors will be seen in this movie including Mehreen Raheel, Salman Shahid, Faryal Goher and Omair Rana. Tamanna is a story of a young man Riz Ahmad (OmairRana) who falls in love with the young wife (MehreenRaheel) of the Mian Tariq Ali (Salman Shahid). Mian Tariq Ali invites Riz Ahmad to his house to play games. Movie continues with two characters fighting over a woman. The tale of Tamanna revolves around snobbery, adultery, feudalism, robbery, love, jealousy, crime and murder. Tamanna is different from typical Pakistani movies and highlights average people of Pakistan.
Omair Rana was not the part of this film initially. Hameed Sheikh was given this role to play who brilliantly played the famous role of Sher Shah in super blockbuster of Shoaib Mansoor Khuda Kay Liye but according to the producer Sarah Tareen, he was replaced by Omair Rana.
Pakistani film takes long time to release and making film at international level is not an easy job. A lot of care is required for making such film of international standard. Due to this reason, the renowned playback singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is given an opportunity of singing for this film. The soundtrack of the movie is produced byMianYousufSalahuddin and written by Sahir Ali.
The producer of the movie Tamanna Sarah Tareen said in an interview that “The story is essentially about class snobbery, adultery and ego. We have purposefully chosen realism and artistic integrity over sensationalism, because we want this film to be taken seriously internationally and have a long shelf life.
Our general philosophy is to stay away from politics and religion and to concentrate on class and social issues. This film is not ‘masala’ but neither is it parallel cinema – it is midway and is aimed at intelligent viewers from any background. The story is relevant to present Pakistani culture with its emerging middle class challenging the gentry”.
This movie will hopefully make Pakistani cinema famous as it was in 60’s and 70’s. Pakistan film industry is expected to gain international recognition due to the success of Tamanna at international level. Tamanna will also open new ways for Talented and skillful Pakistani people and will surely contribute in highlighting the positive image of Pakistan.
The cast of Tamanna is also well experienced and internationally acclaimed. This movie seems to be interesting and focuses onlove, crime, ego, snobbery, robbery and murder. This film hopes to reach the success and also will recognize at international leve
