The official trailer for the Mehwish Hayat starrer Chhalawa is out and it is filled with Punjabi wedding drama. It shows dramatic moments, dialogues from Bollywood movies, dance performances and a whole lot of emotions.
The characters all have eccentric roles with Zara Noor Abbas flaunting her Punjabi, Azfar Rehman reciting dialogues from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Hayat in action with her desi girl vibes.
The plot revolves around Hayat who is forced to marry someone against her will. Her actual love interest (Rehman) arrives to convince her father (Mehmood Aslam) to let her marry him instead. The plot is similar to previous Bollywood films we have watched. However, it still looks like a promising family-watch.
Filmmaker Wajahat Rauf’s Karachi Se Lahore and Lahore Se Aaagey hit the right notes with audiences. We can only hope the same for Chhalawa.
The movie also stars Asad Siddiqui and Ashir Wajahat. It is expected to release on Eidul Fitr and will be competing at the box office with The Legend of Maula Jatt.
