Pakistani film industry is growing day by day. And winning zillion hearts all around the world. We have number of films which are scheduled to entertain us this year. Like Sherdil, Wrong No and the most awaited movie The Legend of Maula Jutt. Not only the makers are coming with squeals of the films but also some are trying their luck to bring the trend of remake of classical iconic films. The example of which is recreation of Maula Jutt.
There is no control on imagination. There are no limitations to imagine something and there are endless possibilities to various things is a thought that fascinate us a lot. Everyone has his/her own humor and imaginative guns blazing blazing for this piece, as we have hit that zone to the maximum for this one. Last night an idea which comes to my mind was what if Lollywood Blockbusters were remade with the cast of on-going successful drama. And you know to imagine it is fun and funny also.
The first film which made me to imagine a recreation with a drama cast was all times hit and block-buster film Chooriyan. Not only the story and direction made it a successful. But it was also the ensemble cast which had made place in hearts of zillions. Considering Chooriyan was an ensemble cast film, i could not find a better cast on drama than the Cheekh. To make it a clear and true explanation regarding the story and characters, i also have made changes in the characters, pairing and descriptions. Have a look…..!
Aijaz Aslam Aka Yawar As Bakhtu (Moammar Rana)
Although we know the fact that there are few negative shades about his character in Cheekh. But the love he does passionately with his family and specially his younger brother Wajih matches with the passion and intense love of Bakhtu. He can do anything for his loved one. Most importantly the way he is protecting his brother cause of extreme love for him, make us remember Bakhtu’s extreme love and his way of protecting Billo from Natt.
Ushana Shah Aka Nayab As Billo (Saima)
I do not think anyone can doubt on it. Yeah i know the fact that her character was cameo one . But Nayab comes to closet to being Billo in Choorain. Of course, the step mom factor and mazlom daughter who is sacrificing her love for family conveys a lot. She can totally do that. We know that she is the only one who can perform the role. Despite he fact that to match the standard of acting skills of Saima Ji is tough job. Be it her acting skills or her expression, when she stepped into the character of Billo she will nail it.
Saba Qamar Aka Mannat As Sammiya (Nargis)
Initially, i had my doubts about this, but then I went to compare the characters. The passion to get something or to achieve something which both Mannat and Sammiya have in their personalities. Makes me to imagine Mannat in character of Sammiya. And if we talk about the real personality and charm of Saba instead reel. Everyone is aware about the fact that no-one can defeat her when it comes to acting skills, versatility and of-course dancing.
Bilal Abbas Aka Wajih As Makha Natt
The remake of Maula Jutt has totally changed the image of Villains and has given us new villain in form of handsome boys in town. The same thing we have seen in Cheekh also. The drama gives us such a handsome cruel villain that no one can hate him. There does not seem to be any doubt for us on Wajih in character of Natt. He is cruel, he is ruthless, he can destroy anyone. Wajih is a proven villain on-screen and playing Natt is totally justifiable to his talent.
So what do you thing about this re-make and re-cast of Chooriyan with the cast of Cheekh. I know some of you may not like the facts which i point out. But believe me it is just in result of fun imagination. And as i said before there is no limitation on imagination. Do not forget to share your view and your imagination on the recasting and remaking in the comment section below.
