Enormous Risk with This Kind of Storytelling but the Glittering Effect makes it Worth of Your Time and Money
15 August 2019 | by kshehzadSee all my reviews

Once I was discussing about revival of Pakistani cinema with my friend who happens to be a big fan of South Korean movies. We know our neighboring film industry also carries extreme fondness for South Korean cinematic work to the extent that they are often found copying the same. We also discussed chances of someone from Pakistan copies from other regions then what should be the benchmark for that filmmaker. We had difference of opinion but had consensus on one point that no Pakistani filmmaker go for replicating Bollywood movies ever because it will be like the copying the copied stuff. It gives us extreme satisfaction to learn that Asim Raza who debuted with a great film like "Ho Mann Jahaan" took a different path and went for getting "inspired" from one of the best rom-coms ever."Parey Hut Love" is an unofficial Pakistani remake of Hugh Grant's "Four Weddings and a Funeral".

As an avid moviegoer I was always keen to see how a Pakistani director with the caliber of Asim Raza interprets British aesthetics for such common denominators whose taste buds have completely been corrupted by Bollywood Masala for decades. It was a tricky job maintaining a shaky balance between "Desi" sensitivities and a Western plot line because our audience may feel estranged from the plot and higher dose of Bollywood ingredient can downgrade the slick quality which has been a trademark of every better Pakistani film of this revival period. Good news Asim Raza narrowly escapes and slightly achieves what exactly he was aiming for with "Parey Hut Love" but the title of the movie could have been better.

Sheharyar Munawar, who lacks in displaying the ability of being nervous and frisky same time like Hugh Grant, plays lover-boy-next-door kind of a role which seems to be the requirement of the script to increase the acceptability of his character for the audience. And he does with an ease but element of loudness in his character could have been toned down. Overall he looks good and he performs well.

Maya Ali who won everyone in her debut film "Teefa in Trouble" mesmerizes again but this time her character becomes slightly serious. Ahmad Ali Butt who was completely unstoppable in "Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2" remains off color. Veteran actor Nadeem Baig is completely wasted and Hina Dilpazir is just repeating herself and there are scenes in which she seems overdoing. Zara Noor Abbas has a spark and deserves more brownie points. Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan appear in cameo roles.

Azaan Sami Khan proves his genes by composing one of the best melodies of the year for "Parey Hut Love". Every song has its own appeal and delight. Visuals are stunning and cinematography by Serkan Erzin and Salman Razzaq makes "Parey Hut Love" as one of the well shot movies of Pakistan. Production design and art work are magnificent and raise the bar. They just needed to refrain from product placement which is nothing but irritating.

On the whole "Parey Hut Love" is a diligent cinematic piece of work with narrative style which has never been explored before in Pakistani films. Asim Raza has taken an enormous risk with this kind of storytelling but glittering effect of "Parey Hut Love" makes it worth of your time and money.
