The trailer for Yasir Nawaz’s directorial, Chakkar, a murder mystery starring Ahsan Khan and Neelum Muneer in pivotal roles, is finally out. It was established from the teaser that the film will not be a typical rom-com like the previous movies Yasir has directed and produced, and the trailer only validates that. Keeping up with the unresolved murder mystery genre, Yasir has managed to add a festive comedic element to the film, making it stand out as a distinct holiday release.
Produced by the husband-wife duo, comprising Yasir and his better half Nida, under the Farid Nawaz Productions banner, Chakkar explores an enigma of a twin murder case. Neelum is playing a double role in the film, essaying twin sisters Mehreen Khan and Zara Khan. Mehreen plays Kabir’s (played by Ahsan) wife while Zara is a superstar infamous for her difficult and lousy work ethic. The trailer also reveals that Kabir cuts ties with Zara when her life of glamour and glitz disappoints him but his wife, Mehreen continues to stay in touch with her sister.
While one wonders how that conflict alone might play out, Yasir exposes a major plot reveal in the trailer. One fateful night, behind Kabir’s back, the twins decide to swap places with each other, with Mehreen replacing Zara at shoots and facing the dramatic upheavals of the industry. However, the storyline of Chakkar seems to take an interesting turn when a murder takes place with the world thinking it is Zara who has been brutally murdered.
While she may have had enemies from her showbiz industry, it is hard to conjure who would have wanted to murder Mehreen. This leads to the entry of Inspector Shahzad (Yasir) who dons the hat to investigate the murder and considers Kabir to be a prime suspect given his lack of fondness for his sister-in-law. How will it unfold that it is actually Mehreen who got murdered?
The trailer is sharply cut and reveals only so much that instils further curiosity within viewers. Alongside the identical twin murder mystery, Chakkar qualifies for an all-encompassing entertainment package filled with dance numbers, action sequences, romantic ballads, picturesque locations, cheap punch lines, scattered comic scenes to ease the tension, suspense and of course, lots of drama.
Apart from Ahsan, Neelum and Yasir, the murder mystery film also stars Javed Sheikh, Ahmed Hasan, Mehmood Aslam and Naveed Raza among others. Cricketer Shoaib Malik has also made a cameo appearance. It is slated to release on Eidul Fitr.
