Amid political discomfort and rivalry of senior artists over PSL songs, a bunch of young professionals from Khayaali Productions, are releasing Pakistan’s first-ever fan-made movie on Harry Potter in Government College University, Lahore. Yes, there is a spring festivity in town for all the Harry Potter fans and fiction addicts from 5thto 8thof March, 2020. Most of us have been grown up while watching these fascinating magical rollercoasters and imagining our lives in those dark alleys. Unfortunately, we were never able to see those experiential spaces and fictional techniques in our local film industry due to a linear fixation of our production houses towards only one stylistic approach in the 1990s. However, the new generation is experimenting with unique ideas to combat modern advancement worldwide.
The trailer of the movie, The Last Follower was released last year and instantly spread its spell across the borders. It managed to not only get a huge response from national and international audiences but also got featured in different electronic and press media groups.
The movie has all the potentials to screen nationwide due to the gothic architecture of the location, magical cinematography, and quality content, however, although the talent was appreciated by the professionals never got recognized practically. The young artists strive their way to introduce a new genre in the local industry on their own which can be witnessed in the final trailer of the movie. The movie has been directed and written by a very talented filmmaker, Waleed Akram. The story is a mystery but we can see some wizards and witches roaming around the school after some years of Harry Potter events. The rising talent such as Umer Darr, Mariam Hassan Naqvi, Jazib Akram, Talha Chahour, Sheikh Mubashir, and Dua Marium has been featured as some of the leading roles in the movie. The event is open for the public on the 8th of March and the tickets are available at Government College University, Lahore.
The young talent aims to crack the freezing style by bringing versatility and new ideas to home.
