Major disappointment
1 December 2016 | by umarrrrrrSee all my reviews

I haven't actually submitted any reviews on IMDb ever, but this time i wanted to actually review because I went in with huge expectations which were slammed to pieces when i watched the movie.

Dobara phir se is a story about a guy who (a flirt) falls in love with a girl played by Hareem Farooq. The story is so predictable that i actually wanted the movie to finish early.

Positives: Good cinematography, locations, Adeel Hussain, Ali Kazmi, Hareem Farooq, Sanam Saeed, Tooba Siddique. All of the cast acted alright but Hareem Farooq needs to have some lessons on depicting emotional scenes. It was quite evident in one of the season which was supposed to be a melodramatic one where she was faking. Adeel has been very good. For me the surprise package was Ali Kazmi who came out to be one of the characters you wanted more screen time of.

Negatives: Bad sound quality, Poor pacing of the movie, Script: Okay but poorly told. Movie feels like it has been patched and cropped and cut. Disjointed. Comedy in the movie is very bad. Not even a single laughing scene.

Otherwise it was a good attempt but please next time please have a good coherent movie with good pacing and humor. Only good locations and a good cast doesn't suffice. I hope my rant gives the guys at ARY productions to have some food for thought.
