Lahore (Muhammad Yasir)
Pakistan’s highly anticipated and star studded film “Money Back Guarantee”, which recently released its theatrical trailer have left the audience confused. Directed and written by Faisal Qureshi, Money Back Guarantee promises to deliver a healthy dose of super comedy to the world but it fails to strike the cord and looks like an immature presentation by copying of several Hollywood films.
The film has an ensemble star cast including our own super star Fawad Khan, Jawed Sheikh, Mikaal Zulfiqar, Gohar Rasheed, Ayehsa Omar, among several others, in completely new avatars. Cricket legend Wasim Akram and his wife Shaniera Akram have also appeared in this crime-thriller cum comedy.
The trailer has drawn comparisons to the popular Spanish show Money Heist since its teaser but it fails abruptly in comparison. The Lead star Fawad khan is essaying a completely different look, which is receiving mixed response, whereas all the other characters fall flat in the trailer narration.
Wasim Akram and Shaniera Akram have been given ample time in the trailer and they look good in the visuals too.
The trailer has a high dose of voice over which was meant to add the curiosity but it does not give the fair reelection of the story package inside the story.
Produced by Zashko films and released by Distribution Club, “Money Back Guarantee” is releasing on Eid ul fitar in front of Kamran Shahid’s Hoay Tum Ajnabi.
It looks like an interesting clash as both the films are based on different subjects that fail the mass appeal.
