Eid ul Fitr is second biggest occasion of the year at box office after Eid ul Azha. Many film makers aim for a holiday release with hopes of maximum gains from the footfall. Which is why we see a cluster of local releases on both Eids.
Eid ul Azha is usually crowded with Pakistani films only however Eid ul Fitr sees releases from Hollywood as well. Last year we saw Aladdin releasing around Eid ul Fitr and that movie turned out to be a huge hit.
1.Fast and Furious 9
This year we have even bigger Hollywood film releasing on Eid ul Fitr. Fast 9 is slated to release on Eid ul Fitr and is probably the biggest film of the year. However things won’t be that easy for Fast 9 as we might see two Fawad Khan releases against Fast and Furious 9.
2. Money Back Guarantee
Faisal Qureshi directed Fawad Khan and Wasim Akram starrer Money Back Guarantee is already confirmed for Eid release. The film has potential to pose some threat to Fast 9 though if the recent reports are correct then Fast 9 will have even bigger threat.
3. The Legend of Maula of Jatt
As per latest reports, The Legend Of Maula Jatt is all set for Eid release as well. Fawad Khan, Hamza Abbasi, Mahira Khan and Humaima Malick starrer can not only be a strict competitor to Fast 9 rather the film might even open bigger than Fast 9. If The Legend Of Maula Jatt releases on Eid it will probably lead on Eid followed by Fast 9 and Money Back Guarantee. With these three big guns set for Eid release there won’t be a space for another film to score big.
4. Tich Button
Moreoever we do have another big film lined up for Eid. Feroze Khan, Farhan Saeed, Iman Ali and Sonya Hussyn starrer Tich Button is set for Eid release as well. ARY FILMS production might bring surprise with huge start as the film’s teaser was dropped yesterday and it has grabbed good amount of eyeballs and the film has managed to create buzz.
5. Lafangey: Chapter 1
Sami Khan starrer Lafangey: Chapter 1 is also slated for Eid release as well. The film is a horror comedy starring familiar faces like Mani, Saleem Miraj and Mubeen Gabool. The genre will be a crowd pulller and can be expected to garner some buzz.
Action comedy Half Fry stars fan favorite jodi Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain. The film comes from Kataksha and Tevar’s director Abu Aleeha.These are the six major films which are so far expcted to hit on Eid. Like always it looks like filmmakers are keen to release their films on Eid as the myth contines to hold that Pakistani films work on Eid only.
We will also have couple of more English films releasing on Eid but they won’t be taking much of the screen space.
Which film are you excited about?
