Shooting for the sequel of Jawani Phir Nahi Ani is expected to begin in March 2017
As always, there’s lots of mixed reviews regarding this news. Before we get into the details, a little blue bird (alright alright, Humayun Saeed‘s tweet) has confirmed that Fahad Mustafa, of the Jeeto Pakistan fame, has signed to star in this star-studded sequel of one of the highly successful movies of Pakistan. Although, it seems that he will be replacing Hamza Ali Abbasi (Sad times for his fans, but many of us at TBW think this replacement might be for the best!!) Rumour has it that Fahad Mustafa has a busy year ahead of him as he is set to play lead roles in three movies, one of those being JPNA2!
Fans of the first JPNA are bound to be excited since the movie was taken very well by the masses. The cast was A-class while the shooting locations were mind-blowing; the music was catchy and some of the scenes really did tickle our funny bone. We read reviews where fans enjoyed it so much, they watched it a couple of times even!
However, there were many people who felt that the film contained a lot of unnecessary vulgarity and pushed the jokes to the limit of it not being a family movie anymore. What we don’t understand is why people automatically assume that B-rated dirty humour is the key to a good movie? What so happened to substance? And if the argument is, our counterparts from across the border do it, then all we have to say is: that doesn’t make it right! We truly believe that avoiding irrelevant obscenity can actually do wonders for your film! In fact, Vasay Chaudhry is a brilliant writer and we are rooting hard that he writes a script that is funny but CLEAN and not cheap! Let’s keep our fingers crossed and see what is in store!
Comment and let us know if you liked or did not like Jawani Phir Nahi Ani and WHY?
p.s. we are also hoping that Ahmed Ali Butt and Vasay Chaudhry get maximum screen time because they are the REAL show-stealers!
