Ho Mann Jahaan – Movie Review
Asim Raza’s Ho Mann Jahaan is the most anticipated movie of 2016. The New Year will bring “massive-TV-audience” to cinema halls in Pakistan. Ho Mann Jahaan features the gorgeous Mahira Khan, talented Sheheryar Munawar and Adeel Hussain. The movie Ho Mann Jahaan was heavily promoted on social media and a huge series of multiple promotional events were also witnessed in different cities of Pakistan. Let’s see what Ho Mann Jahaan has to offer to its viewers.
Ho Mann Jahaan is a tale of 3 friends Mahira Khan, Adeel Hussain and Sheheryar Munawar. Their love and passion for music is intensified but they are always suppressed by the society and family from which they belong. What happens in the pursuit of finding their dreams is what Ho Mann Jahaan is all about.
Performance wise, Ho Mann Jahaan, unfortunately does not belong to any actor. The performances are nothing like over the top or worth remembering. Sheheryar Munawar is a good talent to be utilized but in this very movie he is not in his finest form. He needs to work on himself. A few of post-interval scene from Shehryar are nice; and that is it. Adeel Hussain carries the character well but lacks the conviction in many parts. Mahira Khan is simply gorgeous. This could have been her most promising role, but she somewhere got carried away and did not look the character she performed.
Music of Ho Mann Jahaan has received a mix reaction, some songs are melodious, some are promoted excessively to be heard and some are just average.
The highlight of Ho Mann Jahaan is its “Cameo-Gang”. Asim Raza has interestingly and smartly utilized multiple actors (read: stars) as cameo in the script and that’s refreshing.
The biggest let down of this movie is that it’s editing is very lousy. It could have been a lot better and shorter with smart editing.
Asim Raza as the director of the movie is dependable. It’s a nice effort from Raza but the movie is sure to receive both applaud and criticism i.e. a mixed response. Ho Mann Jahaan is a family watch.
