LAHORE: Four films — three Pakistani and one Bollywood — will be released on Wednesday (today) to spice up the festivity of Eidul Azha for filmgoers.

Pakistani films include Waar, Super Girl and Sharabi, while the Bollywood flick is Boss.

According to entertainment circles, Waar is likely to be a super hit movie if its TV promos are anything.

Waar is a bilingual Pakistani action film featuring an unconventional cast using live bombs, real gunship helicopters and other modern warfare techniques. The 2:10 hours film directed by Bilal Lashari and written and produced by Hasan Waqas Rana was shot in Lahore, Islamabad and Sawat.

The Rs200 million feature film is being regarded the heaviest-budgeted film project in the history of film industry.

The Pakistan film industry has high hopes attached to this film. Film circles believe that such a heavy budget movie would be a feather in the cap of Pakistan film industry. The film is being released on Eid with some 30 to 35 prints.

The other two films — Super Girl and Sharabi — are low budgeted movies. Super Girl is an Urdu movie starring Nida Chauhdry and Babrik Shah. Sharabi, a Punjabi movie, directed by Pervaiz Rana, also has the same pair in the lead.

The only Indian film being released on Eid is Boss, an action masala film, directed by Anthony D’Souza. The film features Akshay Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty, Shiv Pandit, Aditi Rao Hydari and Ronit Roy.
