ARY Films and Redrum Films, in association with Sermad Films & Jaswal Films, locks “Jalaibee” for a summer 2014 release.

Starring Adnan Jaffar, Ali Safina, Danish Taimoor, Uzair Jaswal, Wiqar Ali khan and Zhalay Sarhadi, “Jalaibee” focuses on a series of intertwined stories of several characters scuffling through desperate circumstances. The movie is directed by Yasir Jaswal and features a soundtrack of 10 songs by artists including Qayyas, Uzair Jaswal and Humaira Arshad amongst others.

From its purposely vague first look teaser trailer, “Jalaibee” features a hard-contrast palette and shifts between a disparate set of situations including some gunfire action.

According to the Press Release, the movie is the first Pakistani feature to be shot on an Arri Alexa HD – a high-end cinema camera known for its organic film-like aesthetic (the camera has a long list of motion picture credits including): “Skyfall”, “Iron Man 3” and the Oscar winning “Life of Pi”.

ARY Films has confirmed that “Jalaibee” will be released simultaneously in Pakistan, US, UK and the UAE in summer 2014. A fixed date is not confirmed at this point, however.
