Swaarangi will be released in cinemas across Pakistan on September 11, 2015. Release date of the film has been changed as a gesture to support Pakistani movies already running in cinema. There is limited number of screens in Pakistan at the moment.
Swaarangi is an upcoming Pakistani movie starring Resham and Ayub Khosa in lead roles. The movie is already making waves as it is Resham’s return to the silver screen after a gap of 7 years. Swaarangi has been shot in distant locations near Kalabagh and is based on real incidents. The film is directed by Fida Hussain and produced by Mazhar Abbas.
Producer Mazhar Abbas was quoted saying:
“As a gesture to support revival of Pakistani cinema, we are delaying the release of our movie by two weeks. This will help all movies being made in Pakistan to perform at a high level at the box office. This is in the spirit of supporting Pakistani cinema”.
Swaarangi is expected to be another parallel cinema movie from Pakistan which has reasonably good chances of working well on the box office. Recently released message oriented movies like Moor have paved the way for serious cinema releases in Pakistan.
