Performance wise Dobara Phir Se is truly amazing. Right from the main leads to the supporting artistes, everyone gives their best on-screen. Adeel Hussain is effortless. He keeps it simple and is every bit believable. Only a mature actor could have carried out the character of Hammad, and Adeel nailed it. Hareem Farooq is gorgeous, talented and the future ace performer in the female leads. You can’t keep your eyes off Hareem. Sanam Saeed is spontaneous and she gives a very realistic performance. Ali Kazmi does justice with his role. Ali is one of those actors who can do a lot better provided he is given well-penned roles; and Dobara Phir Se is his finest by far.
Tooba Siddiqui is first rate. Shaz Khan is a revelation; he displays emotions and chauvinist expressions with complete ease. Shaz Khan will keep you awed and fixated with his high-voltage-drama scenes. Atiqa Odho is good. Special mention for the kid, he is cute and acts seriously well.
The cinematography of Dobara Phir Se is brilliant and very impressive. Songs are first rate, almost every other song is catchy; Lad Gaiyyaan, Kaisee Hai Ye, Baaghon Mein being the toppers. The beauty of Dobaraa Phir Se lies in its simple to understand dialogue. The script is amazingly written, including the day to day language which Pakistanis use. Direction of the movie is at its finest. Watch it, it’s for classes, this film is amongst the true examples of “Revival of Pakistani Cinema”.
