After hooking the audience with its poster and some amazing songs, the makers of upcoming Punjabi film AFSAR have made sure that their film’s buzz reaches every nook and cranny of Punjab. Certainly, this Nimrat Khaira and Tarsem Jassar starrer is all that the punjabi audience is excited about these days, and there are some good enough reasons for that. So, here we list below some of the most compelling reasons why you should go and watch AFSAR with your families this Friday!
It takes guts to attempt something different especially in Punjabi cinema that’s largely famous for its run-of-the-mill comedies. Nadar Films and Vehli Janta Films, known for its films like Bambukat and Rabb Da Radio – the motion pictures that didn’t just entertain people, but also passed on beautiful messages through their brilliant storylines, are now rolling AFSAR that deals with a major issue in Punjab!Those living in villages can certainly relate with the commoners obsession for ‘Patwaris’ – Patwaris who are even considered bigger in rank than the Kanugos! Written by Jass Grewal and directed by Gulshan Singh AFSAR’s story revolves around this very concept only, wherein even though the lead hero – Tarsem Jassar – is a Kanugo (Afsar) yet he’s asked to step down from his rank to that of a ‘Patwari’. Watch the trailer and get amused!
Whether it’s the foot-tapping song, Kheen Khaam or the romantic number by Ranjit Bawa – Sun Sohniye or the best one – the title song ‘Patwaari’, the brilliant music of AFSAR has captivated the audience like anything. Preet Hundal, the music director has done a great job and the heart-touching ‘Ishq Jeha Ho Gaya’ is another ultimate from this music album of AFSAR. It’s rare these days to have a film with all its songs super-hit, but team AFSAR has certainly done it.
This is for the first time that a remarkable pairing like Tarsem Jassar and Nimrat Khaira has happened in Punjabi cinema. While Tarsem Jassar has displayed his acting prowess well with films like Rabb Da Radio, Sardar Mohammad and a guest appearance in Daana Paani, Nimrat Khaira had an impressive debut as the second lead in Lahoriye last year. Both Jassar and Khaira have a massive following in not just Punjab but also internationally. This good-looking jodi is going to be a major crowd-puller for AFSAR.
Slated to release on October 5, ‘Afsar’ is a romantic comedy. Besides Tarsem Jassar and Nimrat Khaira, the film stars Gurpreet Ghuggi, Karamjit Anmol, Rana Jung Bahadur and Pukhraj Bhalla.
