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



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

Petrol, diesel prices likely to go down from April 1




  • Petrol rate likely to reduce by Rs4-5 per litre.
  • Rs15-20 per litre reduction expected in diesel price.
  • Sources hint at possibility of prices remaining unchanged.

Following a reduction in international crude oil prices, the rates of petroleum products in Pakistan are expected to decline from April 1, Geo News reported Wednesday.

According to estimates of oil marketing companies (OMCs), the price of diesel is likely to decline by Rs15-20 per litre while the price of petrol is expected to go down by Rs4-5 per litre.

However, well-placed sources in the industry said that there is a possibility that the Finance Division keeps the price unchanged.

In its last fortnight bulletin, the federal government raised the price of petrol to Rs272 per litre.

The Finance Division attributed the price hike to the depreciation of the Pakistani rupee against the US dollar and an increase in the prices registered by Platts Singapore.

The price of MS (petrol) was increased by Rs5 per litre and the price of hi-speed diesel was increased by Rs13 per litre.

The increase in the price of kerosene oil was kept at Rs2.56 by reducing the government’s dues on it. Similarly, the price of light diesel oil was kept constant by adjusting the government dues as well.

The new prices came into effect on March 16 and will remain in place till March 31.

The Finance Division will announce the news rates on March 31 which will remain in place for the next 15 days.

PM Shehbaz takes notice of gas loadshedding during sehr, iftar




  • PM Shehbaz says he has already taken notice of the matter.
  • Premier summons a meeting to discuss issue of gas loadshedding.
  • “We will leave no stone unturned to address this issue,” PM says.

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday assured the members of the National Assembly that his government would address the issue of gas loadshedding during sehr and iftar as inflation-weary people have been registering complaints.

The prime minister, responding to a point of order raised by MNA Syed Agha Rafiullah, told the house that he had already taken notice of the matter.

PM Shehbaz shared that he had already summoned a meeting to be held later in the day, to discuss the issue of gas loadshedding.

“We will leave no stone unturned to address this issue,” the prime minister assured the house.

Earlier, a parliamentarian from Karachi’s Malir area drew the house’s attention to the problem of gas loadshedding being faced by the people, particularly those of Karachi, during sehr and iftar.

He said though the prime minister had already taken notice of the situation, the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) needed to be directed to resolve the issue and provide uninterrupted supply during sehr and iftar.

Last week, the SSGC said gas would be supplied to domestic consumers during the holy month of Ramadan, but for limited hours — a move that irked consumers who complained of not getting enough of this essential fuel during mealtimes.

The utility had said that the gas pressure would be low from 8am to 2:30pm as it was facing a shortfall of 250 million mmbtu.

According to the SSGC helpline, for iftar, gas will be supplied to consumers in Karachi from 2:30pm to 7pm, while for sehr it will be available from 2:30am to 5am.

The gas utility added that consumers would face complete suspension or low pressure during the rest of the hours. 

However, the people have been complaining that gas remained suspended during sehr and iftar which forced them to purchase meals from hotels and restaurants which burdened their pockets.
