We have often heard that the Pakistani film industry needs to make quality horror content. However, the dilemma is yet to be resolved. There hasn’t been much content on film or television, despite many efforts, that will give the audience a good scare. Had Usman Mukhtar’s Gulabo Rani been a full length feature film, the problem would have been resolved.
Gulabo Rani: Behind The Scenes
The actor and director just dropped the trailer of his latest venture, Gulabo Rani, a short film produced under the banner of Meiraj Haq and Usman Mukhtar’s new production house, Eastern Terrestrial Studios.
The Gulabo Rani Trailer
Only two minutes long, the trailer not only captivates the audience, but also gives one a good scare. Well directed, gorgeously edited, with the color grading and background score only adding to the suspense and fear on part of the onlookers, Gulabo Rani‘s trailer gives your spine some serious chills.
A young boy is accepted into a 150-year-old university. What ensues is a series of events that scare the young boy out of his wits. A senior seems to bully and make fun of the young boy because of his fear but things take a turn when the boy is possessed for real.
Gulabo Rani‘s trailers has some seriously haunting moments, bound to make the audience scared. We see some new faces delivering soul shaking performances, with their expressions on point.
Gulabo Rani stars Usama Javed Haider, Meiraj Haq, Danial Afzal, Omar Abdullah, and Natasha Ejaz in the lead roles. Khushal Khattak will be making a special appearance. The short film has been written by Ali Mudar who has already delivered with ‘Bench‘ and it seems like the plot of Gulabo Rani will also be worth waiting for.

Gulabo Rani releases this July. Our fingers are crossed in anticipation for this. Audiences seem to already be making up their mind about the venture, with the YouTube page for Eastern Terrestrial Studios being flooded with hundreds of positive comments and reviews.
