Cinematic triumph: ‘Teri Meri Kahaaniyan’ caresses the dichotomy of life with humour, sensibility

Carl Jung as soon as said, “The true and the terrible, love and hate, satisfaction and pain, victory and defeat, all are interwoven inside the material of our lives. To deny one is to deny the opposite.” Life is a complicated tapestry of contradictions, in which opposing forces coexist in a delicate balance. The dichotomy of lifestyles famous itself in myriad methods, and every choice has its consequence.

The phrase ‘lifestyles is all about choices’ is clichéd for a motive. Perhaps, setting up the ambiguity of those picks is Teri Meri Kahaaniyan’s triumph. The 3 sagas in Pakistan’s first anthology movie – even though absolutely different genres – delve into the easy contradictions of existence. Nabeel Qureshi’s Jin Mahal takes a comedic direction on social strata, Marina Khan’s Pasoori envelopes societies’ priorities for girls in a dreamy romance, and Nadeem Baig’s poetic story, Ek Sau Taeeswaan, explores loyalty in a global that gives you multiple possibilities – 123 in this example – to violate it.

There’s social commentary in all 3 memories. While they’re all unrelated to every other, the characters seamlessly depict unsuitable humanness. All of them have a properly-advanced warfare and a joyous finishing. The movies stray a ways away from glorifying poverty or romanticising infidelity – a rare pleasant for Pakistani content material.

Spoiler alert! Jin Mahal, the longest phase of all 3, sees a homeless circle of relatives secretly living in a educate station, locating empty berths to name home in the course of the pandemic. Shehenshah (Mani) has no activity and lies to his blind mother Razia Sultana (Gul-e-Rana) approximately dwelling in a railway neighbourhood. After being booted by way of the regulation onto the streets, the circle of relatives ultimately finds safe haven in Jin Mahal – a large abandoned mansion – within the center of a bustling lower-center-magnificence neighbourhood. While the tough-lucked Shehenshah and Mumtaz (Hira Mani) step out to locate jobs, the kids at home warfare to satiate their starvation. Eating paan immediately out of their Dadi’s container, they unknowingly scare the neighbourhood by means of turning into the jins at Jin Mahal. After that, they have a cause to stay and meals to devour – albeit as ghosts. The film was a unanimous favourite at the most appropriate for its earnest comedy with a tinge of short, but effective bits of social remark. While Mani in a serious position is convincing, it’s far the children, Hira, and Gul-e-Rana who thieve the display. The cinematography and art course deserve loud applause. Perhaps, Qureshi need to do greater horror comedies.

After the intermission, the display screen opens with a dance number by means of Shuja Haider and Jawad Hyder for Khan’s directorial debut, Pasoori, centring Salman (Sheheryar Munawar) and Romaisa’s (Ramsha Khan) love story.
