6 reasons ‘Parde Mein Rehne Do’ packs a power punch of entertainment

Published

It’s nothing less than a proud moment for Pakistani cinemas that a light-hearted yet powerful message-bearing movie like Parde Mein Rehne Do leaves no stone unturned in winning over the audience’s hearts.

Like others, we turned toward the local cinemas with high expectations from the Hania Aamir and Ali Rehman starrer and can gladly confirm that Wajahat Rauf and team did not disappoint.

The movie, revolving around a taboo concept of our society, beautifully aims at starting a meaningful conversation about social reality.

We have thus articulated the top 6 reasons why Parde Mein Rehne Do is a power-packed punch of entertainment.

Situational Humour

The 90-minute long film deserves a standing ovation for delivering a sensitive message with a carefully crafted comedic element.

Parde Mein Rehne Do flawlessly carried out the duty of raising awareness around infertility while maintaining laughter on the audience’s faces throughout the movie.

Talking about the humour, it’d be unfair to not mention Javed Sheikh’s name, who perfectly delivered all the punch lines while helming the role of the male protagonist and traditional patriarch.

While in some places, one would feel triggered by the stereotypical vernacular used in certain scenes, the audience will later be able to identify the core message around gender stereotypes at the heart of the film.

Redefines Gender Roles

The film delves deeply into gender roles inscribed in our society and sheds a different light on the role of women around us. 

In a fresh take, the film portrays how empowered men support women in their household, thereby encouraging their counterparts to be their best versions. Hania’s Nazo is constantly encouraged by Ali’s Shani to pursue her professional dreams, even if it means shaping the stigma around women working in his family. 

The plotline understands how both males and females can set aside conventional perspectives around gender stereotypes and help one another grow

Never a dull moment

The movie takes off on a high note and elevates throughout the next 90-minutes span. 

Extending a perfect blend of emotions and humour, there is never a dull moment in Wajahat Rauf’s latest. From Hania Aamir to Javed Sheikh, every actor in the film has performed their finest to keep the audiences glued to the silver screens. 

The heart of every scene showcases excellent character building and sets the tone for the forthcoming scene.

Tackles Label Brigade

In a first for Pakistani cinema, the movie speaks volumes about the boundaries the society draws around how men should conduct themselves. People are quick to hurl labels at male who do not fit the criteria set by the community. 

With the film, the definition of a ‘real man’ is thus re-enforced. Like women, men are born and brought up around various social pressures, they are given a rule book to abide by. To show off their manhood, males must exude sheer strength either by dominance or by concealing emotions. 

The movie thus takes a sensitive issue at hand and explains how a ‘man’ can be ‘strong’ by taking accountability and embracing his insecurities.

Infectious Chemistry Between Hania and Ali

From emotional scenes to dancing cuts, the male and female leads have won over the audience’s hearts with their impressive onscreen chemistry.

Hania and Ali’s stunning performance as a married couple adds another star to the movie. While remaining in their own spaces, the power duo effortlessly pulled off a strong bond on big screens, leaving the moviegoers swooning over them.

Groove-worthy songs

It’s almost impossible for a moviegoer to walk out of the cinema halls without serenading Parde Mein Rehne Do’s exceptional songs.

In addition to a good story and brilliant cast, the movie also holds astounding music tracks, composed and created by Aashir Wajahat.

While the slow song like Chal Chalein takes the audience to a new dimension, the mega-hit Peela Rang brings moviegoers to their feet with a touch of oomph.

The breath-taking songs are not only capable of leaving the public awe-struck with impressive lyrics and composition but also striking music videos with top-notch production quality

Moody’s says the IMF programme will increase Pakistan’s foreign financing.

Moody’s, a reputable international rating agency, has stated that Pakistan’s chances of acquiring funding will increase as a result of the recent agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which offers dependable sources for that purpose from both friendly countries and international financial institutions.

According to a recent Moody’s analysis on Pakistan’s economy, social unrest and tensions could result from Pakistan’s ongoing inflation. The country’s economic reforms may be hampered by increased taxes and potential changes to the energy tariff, it continued.

Moody’s, on the other hand, agrees that the coalition government headed by Shehbaz Sharif of the PML-N is in danger of failing to secure an election mandate, which may potentially undermine the successful and long-lasting execution of economic reforms.

The government’s capacity to proceed with economic changes may be hampered by societal unrest and poor governance, according to Moody’s.

In order to appease the IMF by fulfilling a prerequisite for authorising a rescue package, the government raised the basic tariff on electricity, which coincided with the most recent increase in fuel prices announced on Monday. This report was released by Moody’s.

Food costs have increased in the nation, where the vast majority is experiencing an unprecedented crisis due to the high cost of living, following the government’s earlier presentation of a budget that included a large increase in income tax for the salaried classes and the implementation of GST on commodities like milk.

The most recent comments were made following Islamabad’s achievement of a staff-level agreement for a $7 billion contract that spans 37 months and is contingent upon final approval by the IMF Executive Board.

It states that Pakistan will need foreign financing totaling about $21 billion in 2024–2025 and $23 billion in 2025–2026, meaning that the country’s present $9.4 billion in reserves won’t be sufficient to cover its needs.

Therefore, according to Moody’s, Pakistan is in an alarming position with regard to its external debt, and the next three to five years will be extremely difficult for the formulation and implementation of policies.
