Among the many films that are gearing up to release this year is Mehreen Jabbar’s Dobara Phir Se, which quickly became one of the most anticipated films of the year as soon as it was announced. Coming from someone who is known for her intelligent storylines, the film appears to be great and features new-age actors like Hareem Farooq, Adeel Hussain, Sanam Saeed, Ali Kazmi and Tooba Siddiqui.
The theatrical trailer of the film, released last week, certainly makes us yearn for more. Tackling the universal themes of love, life and relationships, Dobara Phir Se chronicles the story of four individuals whose lives are inter-connected.
While Kazmi and Saeed are in love with each other and on the verge of marriage, Farooq and Hussain’s love story has its highs and lows. Siddiqui, who is making her big screen debut with the film, seems to be the third corner of this love triangle.
Connecting the stories of these individuals coming from different backgrounds, Dobara Phir Se feels like a refreshing take on modern relationships, one that is staying away from regressive clichés. Written and produced by Bilal Sami and directed by Mehreen Jabbar, DPS is slated to release this year.
