The year 2018 and early 2019 gave us a mixed bag of movies with many big budget A-list stars’ films being given the thumbs down at the box-office whereas low-budget movies with strong scripts worked well with both fans and critics alike.
What will next half of 2019 have it store for us? We list some of the movies we are looking forward to now at the theatres including Mahira Khan’s Superstar and Hareem Farooq’s Heer Maan Jaa.

These are some of the other movies we are looking forward to this half of the year as well, like Mehwish Hayat’s film based on the life of politician and first female Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto. The release dates of few other movies are not yet out but we will keep you updated as and when they are announced. Stay tuned!

Paray Hut Love
The powerhouse talent of Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui and Maya Ali are coming together for the first time in Asim Raza’s Paray Hut Love which is releasing on Eid Al Adha. Sheheryar has worked in Asim’s previous film Ho Mann Jahan. This will be Maya’s first film with both Sheheryar and Asim, after giving a ‘heroine’ performance last year in Teefa in Trouble. Maya has defined her acting prowess on television and on-screen for us, but how different is this role going to be – we can’t wait to catch this movie at the theatre!

The Legend of Maula Jutt
Can we just confess that this is perhaps our most awaited movie of the year? We totally believe that the immense talents of Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick and more will only bring magic on screen. The most loved, on screen couple are finally reuniting. Yes, Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan are to be seen together after Humsafar. What other better reason to watch it? No doubt, after Waar, Bilal Lashari is going to lit the Pakistani Cinema all over again. Despite the legal battles The Legend of Maula Jutt movie remains one of the most anticipated hits this year. It is a remake of the hit 80’s classic. The movie is out on Eid Al Adha.

Momina Duraid’s film house brings Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf together in a story of stardom and perhaps a fateful romance? Guess we’ll have to wait for the teasers to drop. Bilal Ashraf and Mahira Khan are the Superstar cast for the film. The movie is said to be about the world of Pakistani celebrities. That won’t be hard for Mahira Khan. Though it should be said that Bilal Ashraf’s Yalghaar and Rangreeza tanked at the box office. The film boasts a stellar cast including the industry’s bigwigs Nadeem Baig, Javaid Sheikh, Marina Khan, Asma Abbas, Saife Hassan, Alizay Shah and Ali Kazmi.
Reportedly, audiences will also see special appearances from the likes of Hania Amir, Saira Shehroz, Osman Khalid Butt and Mani as well. Superstar also features a dance number by Jawani Phir Nahi Ani star Kubra Khan.

Ready Steady No 
After giving a stellar performance in Baaji, Amna Ilyas is all set for the release of her another upcoming film Ready Steady No this 19th July. The film revolves around a young, middle-class couple who are desperate to take the plunge. Which seems like a roller-coaster ride, the two lovebirds come across various hurdles and mix-ups while they try and make their nikkah happen. The upcoming film stars Faisal Saif as the male lead, who is also a debutant. Alongside Saif and Ilyas star Salman Shahid, Ismail Tara, Zain Afzal, Nargis Rasheed and Marhoom Ahmed Bilal.

Heer Maan Ja
After winning our hearts in Parchi, Hareem Farooq and Ali Rehman Khan are back with Heer Maan Jaa. They have already won us with the tagline. Both the actors are seen showing their whacky side in the poster of this rom-com. We are absolutely ready to go on this romantic yet crazy ride with these two insanely talented stars expecting tons of humour, goofiness, and most importantly, great on-screen chemistry! Well the rumour has it that the film also touches the bit of honour killing, however nothing has been confirmed yet. The movie is out on Eid Al Adha.

As you can see from the Zarrar’s movie trailer, this one promises to be an action thriller. This thriller will be about the life of a spy and feature Pakistani intelligence agencies. Veteran actor Shaan Shahid is the writer and director of the film, along with playing the protagonist alongside Kiran Malik, Adnan Butt and Nadeem Malik. British cinematographer, Timothy Hallam Wood is the Director of Photography (DoP). The film is scheduled to release on August 14.
