WEB DESK: Here comes good news for all those who have a passion for dance. Pakistan’s first dance film ‘Dance Kahani’ is coming up soon. Isn’t it a treat for youth?
The shooting of the film is finally wrapped up and it is set to hit theatres in 2016.
The promotional trailer of the film reveals an important character of the film Vernin U’chong as Tipu. Have a look!
Tipu is a free runner and has amazing Parkour skills – it is the art of moving along a route, typically in a city, trying to get around or through various obstacles in the quickest and most efficient manner possible, as by jumping, climbing, or running.
Tipu prefers to perform alone and incorporates Parkour moves very intelligently in his performances.
A poster featuring Tipu was revealed on November 14, 2015.
Although the shooting of the flick began back in 2012 but it took them nearly three years to release the first trailer of the film.
Initially titled as Dance Diaries, the film is centered on an upscale British Pakistani girl Nizzy and her passion for dancing. The film features her journey which starts on a sad note; an incident completely ruins her dreams, but she doesn’t give up hope and comes back with a new spirit.
Omer Hassan’s directorial, Dance Kahani, has been produced by H2O Films and Ion Entertainment in association with Act One.
According to HIP, the director was waiting for the right time to release the film.
“Although we shot the film in 2013 but we were waiting till the audience had matured enough [seen enough films] to accept our film. After a long wait of two years we thought now it was a right time to present it to audience,” HIP quoted the director as saying.
The film mostly includes new breed of actors as per the requirement of the script. The lead cast includes Madeleine Hanna, Alamdar Khan and Vernin U’chong.
The film gives an insight into the underground dance scene in Karachi and explores the hidden talent of the city.
According to HIP, Hassan said that the film required actors to be trained dancers so they contacted a top notch dancing school, Act One which helped them find new talent for the movie.
Though the film is low-budget but the makers haven’t compromised on the quality as it has been shot using the best cameras and instruments.
The director also added in the interview with HIP that in a few days he would unveil another trailer revealing the main lead of the film played by Madeleine Hanna.
Here is the first teaser that was revealed in April this year and immediately grabbed attention.
