Fawad Khan as a bulky Maula Jatt, Hamza Ali Abbasi as Noori Nath, Mahira Khan as Makhoo and Humaima Malick as Daroo, that’s not something you dream of but something that’s going to be a reality, sooner than you think. Yes, we are talking about the ah0mazing first look of The Legend of Maula Jatt which is bigger than anything we expected. The film is all set for an Eid ul Fitr release and we can’t be more excited.
The first look suggests that the film will deal with the origins of Maula Jatt, played by Fawad Khan. What made him become the kind of man he turned out to be, what were the reasons that made him take law in his own hand, and who were the people that stood by him and against him, that’s what this film will be all about. Add the Bilal Lashari touch and you get an international level execution of a desi legend, which grows big with the first look.
Now that you know who plays who, let’s talk about the actors. Ever since Khuda Ke Liye, the audience in Pakistan has been waiting for Fawad Khan’s return to films and that’s finally happening with Bilal Lashari’s version of Maula Jatt. Here Fawad has a bulked body, looks menacing and carries a gandasa with him when he is not in the arena. Hamza Ali Abbasi’s Noori Nath is the bad guy who makes life hell for those who come in his path, and we see him and Maula Jatt colliding in of the final scenes of the teaser. Mahira Khan looks beautiful as always as Maula’s love interest whereas Humaima Malick starts her second innings in films with a role that no one else could have done. She looks sexy, has the walk of a seductress and makes you want to notice her in the teaser because that’s what great actors do.
The talented Gohar Rasheed also plays an important part in the film and that’s evident from the teaser that also has Shafqat Cheema and Nayyar Ejaz, the two menacing men from the 1990s. Shot at a grand scale and featuring larger than life shots, The Legend of Maula Jatt is the film we all had been waiting for. Produced by Ammara Hikmat in collaboration with Bilal Lashari, it is all set to become the first film from the subcontinent to have a simultaneous release in Pakistan and China. Let’s hope it opens doors for our industry to greener pastures.
