Let’s talk about the most talked about the trailer of a Pakistani film – Wrong No 2. Starring Ahmed Hassan, Yasir Nawaz, and Sana Fakhar in the lead (suggests the trailer) the film is set to be released on Eid ul Fitr; its trailer was unveiled during a forced interval in the evening show of Avengers: Endgame and was instantly hated by all.
First, there were hardly any dialogues in the trailer featuring Sami Khan and Neelam Muneer, the film’s stars who were also ignored in the teaser. All dancing shots featured item girl Yashma Gill (Yashma who?) and Ahmed Hassan who has also written the super creepy dialogues. The trailer portrays him as the film’s villain and it will greatly benefit Chhalawa as people will prefer a better looking Azfar Rehman, Asad Siddiqui and even Aashir Wajahat over a B grade Tv actor whose mind still lives in the 1980s Lollywood.
Some below the belt jokes delivered by Jawed Sheikh, Mehmood Aslam, and you-guessed-it-right Ahmed Hassan was also there to make the audience feel sorry for going to Nueplex for Avengers’ latest as they had to endure such mental torture. Just like his last two films, director Yasir Nawaz takes refuge in cheap comedy that people don’t even watch on TV these days.
Furthermore, the trailer tells you that Sami Khan plays a lover boy who is hired to look after the beautiful daughter of a wealthy businessman, played by Neelam Muneer and Jawed Sheikh. Enters the competition Ahmed Hassan who wants to marry the heroine and ends up getting beaten up by the hero who ends up with his lady love as the father agrees to their marriage. There was nothing left for the audience to predict and one hopes that they develop common sense and avoid such a film that stands on jokes that you can’t even repeat at home.
Then there is the Yasir Nawaz – Sana Fakhar track that is kept under wraps for the sole reason that its the central track. The makers should have realized by now that by promoting Yasir Nawaz and Sana Fakhar, the only people they have attracted are those who loved the quality-deprived films that we produced in the 1990s. In order to attract the Multiplex crowd, they would have to re-edit the trailer with the main lead in the front than character actors who have nothing better to do to support mediocrity.
