Competition between various films releasing in the same year is inevitable. In fact this competition is what keeps the film industry lively and brings in energy in performances. With three major names releasing this year, Heer Maan Ja, Paray Hutt Love and Superstar, we believe the trailer to Superstar has certainly given it a definite edge amongst the three! And lets just say, Bilal Ashraf absolutely looks like the superstar he is supposed to look like, giving this film the much needed bonus points.
Superstar’s trailer absolutely made us forget the blunders made in the movie’s first released song “Bekaran”. Is it the film that’ll break all previous blockbuster records or not, that’s yet to be seen. However, the trailer undoubtedly looks promising!
Here take a look:
Particularly worth mentioning is the screenplay as well as the music both of which have been written by Azaan Sami Khan and we can see a glimpse of how well he did with both the jobs in this trailer! Additionally direction by Ehtashamuddin, who also happens to have directed the period play Aangan, will prove to be beneficial for the film as well.
But what has us absolutely hooked is the star studded cast, with Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf in the leads.
One would say, Bilal’s previous films such as Yalghaar and Rangreza werent really big hits, nor did Mahira’s Saat din Mohabbat in do much business. So how can a venture between the two end up in a big hit?
Well that is fairly simple to answer. Have you seen Bilal Ashraf’s looks in the movie? Does he not look like any superstar? Well Duh he does!
So does Mahira and the way her character’s transformation has been shown starting from an innocent looking girl belonging from a middle class family all the way to this “Superstar” who blows the stage away with her performance; this is all that has the potential to make a difference.
Both Bilal Ashraf and Mahira Khan are good looking actors, and utilizing that the right way can help this film become a huge success.
And lets not forget to mention Atif Aslam’s unmistakable voice in the background of the trailer; add that to the film’s positive points! As well as the fact that there seems to be a pretty well casted supporting role team as well, including Nadeem Baig, Alizey Shah, Ali Kazmi, Asma Abbas and Javed Sheikh along with Osman Khalid Butt, Hania Aamir, Kubra Khan and also Syra Shahroz making cameo appearances.
So this Eid ul Azha, the competition is tough. Bilal Ashraf and Mahira Khan look like they have a marked edge with their film Superstar, however, lets not judge the book by its cover, shall we!
