After receiving a 10-minute standing ovation at the worldwide premiere of Joyland at Cannes, Sarmad Khoosat won another loud applause for his soon-to-be-released film Kamli’s at its Karachi premiere. After the overwhelming praise Kamli is gathering, it’s safe to say that Sarmad Khoosat is having the best week of his life.
The film starring acting giants Saba Qamar, Sania Saeed, Nimra Bucha, Omair Rana and the young mystery hero Hamza Khwaja in titular roles is touted to be the “best Pakistani film till date” by fans on social media.
Kamli is now one of the most anticipated films of the year and Twitter can vouch for it. Due for a nationwide cinematic release on Friday, June 3rd, the feminocentric romantic thriller has already created its hype by winning the hearts of the audience and film critics through its brilliant cinematography, a well-edited trailer, an encapsulating soundtrack and symbolic storyline.
Filmmaker Mehreen Jabbar, who watched the film at its private premiere, took to the microblogging site and wrote, “Sarmad’s film Kamli is beautiful, lyrical and soulful with incredible performances by Saba Qamar, Sania Saeed and Nimra Bucha. The cinematography and music compliment and lift this story that takes its time and leaves you shaken. Please go watch!”
Echoing her statement, many fraternity members and critics added their similar pinions of the film. Social media users also chimed in to share how they cannot wait to see the film in theatres soon.
Just watched Sarmad Khoosat’s film Kamli (starring Saba Qamar). Man, I haven’t been this excited, nervous, stimulated by a film in a long time. Ridiculously hot and steamy first half, with a second half that’ll break your heart. Khoosat has raised the bar ridiculously high.

Three moods at the Kamli red carpet and premiere today – Kamli is possibly the best Pakistani movie made till date and all of you must watch it. The screenplay is GENIUS, the direction incredible, and Saba Qamar has given her best performance to date.

Kamli is so unsettlingly good — what a magical film, every scene is a little encapsulated story, with wildly good performances by Sania Saeed and Nimra Bucha. Please watch it when it’s in the cinema on June 3! https://t.co/v6qr8rgKIX
