The epic action film ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt’ to be released on October 13

The wait is over! Bilal Lashari’s magnum opus – the most anticipated film of Pakistan, The Legend of Maula Jatt has an official release date now. The first teaser poster gives a glimpse of the iconic Gandasa, with a release date of 13th October. This date has finally been revealed after much speculation by the fans about various dates in the past few days.

The Legend of Maula Jatt is by far the most expensive film to come out of Pakistan. This intense and epic hero origin story, with a screenplay by Bilal Lashari and dialogues by Nasir Adeeb, is a hard reboot of the 1979 cult classic Maula Jatt. The film is directed by Bilal Lashari, known for his directorial debut, the box office megahit film Waar and produced by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures. The filmmakers have partnered with Geo Films as their presenting partner, the largest media group and key contributor of the revival of cinema in Pakistan. Film  will be locally distributed by Nadeem Mandviwalla of Mandviwalla Entertainment, who is well known for his contribution to cinema. Internationally the film will be distributed by MovieGoers Entertainment.

The movie’s first look teaser released in 2019 managed to receive a thunderous response worldwide for its cinematic grandeur, exceptional star cast and mega scale production. Starring Fawad Khan in the role of the legendary Maula Jatt and Hamza Ali Abbasi as his arch nemesis, Noori Natt, the film reimagines cinema’s greatest rivalry. Mahira Khan, Humaima Malick, Gohar Rasheed, Faris Shafi, Ali Azmat, Shafqat Cheema, & Nayyer Ejaz are some of the other leading names that add to the film’s ensemble star cast.

Bilal Lashari created Maula Jatt by bringing the legendary hero of the east to life through cutting-edge filmmaking techniques of the west. The epic cinematic experience is set to release on Oct 13, 2022 uniting regional, linguistic and cultural domains through its blockbuster approach to storytelling. Lashari’s debut film, WAAR, single-handedly revived the Pakistani film industry breaking box office records in his home country. His film single-handedly expanded the scope of viewership and box office size in Pakistan by 6 folds. Film making as an art form was near extinction but the exemplary success of WAAR elevated Pakistani cinema and catapulted Lashari’s career receiving international acclaim.  

When Bilal Lashari of Lashari Films and Ammara Hikmat of Encyclomedia joined hands in 2016, they set out to make history by creating The Legend of Maula Jatt. A project with the grandest aspirations, the team spared no expense in ensuring that world class quality production came to Pakistan. In order to reinvent Maula Jatt and his nemesis Noori Nath, Lashari envisioned an entirely new visual and thematic identity that is designed as a homage to the iconic film series that captivated audiences for nearly two decades. The Legend of Maula Jatt marks groundbreaking film production with the most successful Pakistani actors, never before seen imagery from the region shot entirely in the Punjab province, state-of-the-art visual effects and monumental production design. The film has the same VFX team that worked on Marvel movies such as Venom, Black Panther and Avengers. The action seen in the film has been worked on by the same stunt team as Hollywood’s Gladiator and 300.

The Legend of Maula Jatt (2022) will bring together the die-hard fans of the cult classic and create a new wave of fan following for generations to come. The promotional teaser of the film currently has +20M views on the official channel and more than +100M views on YouTube uploads. The official Theatrical Trailer dropped on 14th August and is getting a thunderous response from fans and movie critics alike. 

Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap tweeted, “Finally the film I’ve loved so much and the film you really want to see, the trailer is out!”

Insane acting, cinematography and costume. Thismovie is just in a different league, it’s going be huge! Happy Independence Day Pakistan, see we just keep getting better and better.”
