Talash | Official First Look | Releasing Soon
alash is entertainment for a cause. I strongly believe in providing wholesome entertainment to the audience,” he stated, elaborating his motivation behind the project. Describing the genre and nature of the film, he added “The film is essentially a romantic comedy with a commercial feel. While at the heart of the story we have a love triangle, the narrative is quite layered and we have also attempted to address the issue of childhood malnutrition and stunted growth through the film.” That issue seems to be a good fit for its story which from the looks of the teaser revolves around a group of medical students/doctors trekking into the interior rural areas in Sindh.
The teaser showcased some well-shot chases and some thrilling sequences, which made us wonder if the film was more on the intense, dramatic side. “While we have attempted to make a lighthearted film with substance, thematically there are some variations in the narrative, and that is where the intense sequences and chases fit in,” he clarified. Talash has gone through a gruelling two-year shoot where the project’s team ventured into some virgin locations for Pakistani cinema. “We have tried to show the beauty of a wide a swathe of Sindh, which is usually limited shooting in Karachi and a few other areas by most filmmakers. Our film crew travelled to locations in Umarkot, Tharparkar, Mathiyari, Thatta and Sangarh which have rarely been seen before. And of course, we have also shot in Karachi. Hopefully, we will also manage to break a few stereotypes about the province through the film!”
