Prince Charming highlights marital depression, a concept and an idea that many people might not even admit exists, and might be considered taboo for some. The film shows how it might be a silent predator in the lives of countless married couples.
Prince Charming ‘Wowed’ Us For All The Right Reasons!
Sheheryar takes us through a 45 minute journey in the morning of a house wife, making us curious with the first few shots, then keeps us riveted with unexpected twists, and then hits us hard again with a final message and question.
A round of applause for Sheheryar’s directorial debut!
The directorial incorporation of seemingly minor details that symbolize the relationship of a couple & societal mindsets is what raises the viewing experience to another level entirely. Chapals facing away from each other, the dialogue about dum ka pani, not showing a close up of the husband (played by Zahid Ahmed) to keep the viewers distant from him, just like his wife, and then the final question that Sheherzade asks herself?
It’s A Visual Treat & A Message Of Social Awakening You Cannot Miss!
The narration of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s poetry by Mahira and Zahid Ahmed is so captivating that you will want to keep listening to it again and again.
Both Mahira Khan and Zahid Ahmed get the opportunity to play two entirely different roles of the same personality in this film and they ruling it.
Mahira Khan deserves special mention as she immerses herself entirely in Sheherzade’s mystery, delivering a range of expressions in a mere 11 minutes to connect with her viewers so that we feel for her in a very brief span of time.
Fans & Viewers Were Left In Total Awe
To Sum It Up
This debut short film has raised expectations to the next level! We are looking forward to more such great projects by Sheheryar Munawar. It was a treat to watch and was the perfect way to seal the day on a Friday night!
