“Dhai Chaal is a story about Balochistan"
The trailer for Dhai Chaal has been released and it looks to challenge the conventional viewpoints surrounding the India and Pakistan conflict.
It touches on the subject of multiple accusations against Pakistan such as the Mumbai attacks and the Parliament attack.
Taimoor Sherazi has helmed the film while Shamoon Abbasi plays the role of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
Speaking of his role and the film in general, Shamoon said:
“I am playing the part of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the RAW agent from India who was arrested by Pakistani authorities in March 2016.
“It is based on the time when Jadhav was active in the region of Balochistan and was appointed to sabotage the billion-dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.”
Dhai Chaal has been penned by Faiza Choudhry and produced by Dr Irfan Ashraf.
The official synopsis reads: “Dhai Chaal is a story about Balochistan and the struggles faced by its local population to keep peace and harmony.”
Dr Ashraf said the film’s theme pays tribute to the people of Balochistan who stood with the country to fight against terrorism and rendered huge sacrifices in the cause as they lost their loved ones in target killings.
He said: “The film has amicably utilised the landscape for good cinematography and to create public awareness on Balochistan’s tourism potential.
“Moreover, after the launch of this film, it can also grab the attention of filmmakers by Balochistan’s picturesque scenery because it has the unique topography, landscape and natural beauty unmatched in the world.”
The trailer is full of intense confrontations, adversaries and a relentless pursuit of the truth.
Ayesha Omar, Humayoun Ashraf and Shamoon Abbasi offer a glimpse into characters enmeshed in a web of deception and duplicity.
Ayesha’s role as a journalist exploring Balochistan further intensifies the enigmatic allure of the storyline, hinting at an investigation that could unravel deeper secrets.
It is an intense trailer that invokes a sense of unease and mystery.
The trailer has proven popular and viewers have shared their opinions.
One person commented:
“Great, this movie shows the true picture of Indian diplomatic faces and the last dialogue is of much importance.”
“I wish to see more movies like this in the future, you have raised your voice for Kashmir and shown Modi’s true face to the world.”
Another added: “Fantastic. Pakistan needs to make more movies like this.”
A third said: “This looks promising. I will watch it and promote it.”
Dhai Chaal is set to release on December 8, 2023.
