Released on Eid ul Fitr, Yalghaar hit the theaters with a bang, securing a business of approximately Rs 40 million in 2 days, ruling the Pakistani Box Office with impressive numbers as compared to other Eid releases nationwide.
Shaan, Adnan Siddiqui and Humayun Saeed starrer, Yalghaar is based on real life events which took place in Swat Valley at a time of terrorist activities in the region. The movie delves in to depth on how people were affected due to the distress which they took on board from the terror caused by the militants.
Yalghaar depicts a story of patriotism and dedication of the Pakistan army in their war against terrorism. It enlightens the masses on much more pressing concerns, threatening the very peace of our country and succeeds in raising public awareness of the issue. The movie highlights the struggle and hardships that the soldiers of Pakistan army goes through just to ensure the safety of our country.
The screenplay itself is amazing. This action-packed movie rattles along at a cracking pace, with strong performances from all the leading actors. Most of the film is shot on the prime location of the events. Moreover, the use of real weapons and ammunition give a legitimate and original touch to the movie
Newcomers in the movie include Bilal Ashraf, Ahmed Taha Ghani and even Aly Mustansir, supported by veterans like Ayub Khoso, Shaan Shahid and Humayun Saeed keeping the audience involved in the plot.
Armeena Rana Khan, Aleeze Nasser, Sana Bucha, Atiya Khan, Uzma Khan and Ayesha Omer are all the ladies that add to the color of the movie. For “Janaan” girl Armeena this film serves as another great achievement; a turnaround for Uzma Khan after her “Teri Meri Love Story” and Ayesha Omer who is shown as a crying bride to be but has a development with the villain that sticks out.
Pakistan movie industry rarely endulges in producing “War” films, but with the release of Yalghaar it seems that the hoax would not last that long.
