Dobara Phir Se.. A complete package for NRPs (Non residents of Pakistan)

I was pretty excited by the trailer of Dobara Phir Se and actually looked forward to watching it (limited options due to the ban on Bollywood one of the reasons). Anyways, it is a 2016 Pakistani romantic/drama film directed by Mehreen Jabbar. The film stars are Ali Kazmi, Hareem Farooq, Adeel Hussain, Tooba Siddiqui, Sanam Saeed, Atiqa Odho, Shaz Khan, and child actor, Musa Khan.

It’s based on a non-typical setup of Pakistanis living abroad, un-apologetically having wine and live in relationships. The photography and direction are superb! More emphasis has been given on the dialogues and unlike copycats in Lollywood, this movie won by being original. The story revolves around Hareem Farooq, who is in a troubled marriage which leads to divorce, finding herself in a dilemma to move on with her life or not. Honestly, Hareem was the one character which didn’t really fit in the idea of NRPs. Even her dialect wasn’t as smooth, also she couldn’t speak English as a native resident. Sanam Saeed won my heart. She gave the best performance in her limited screen time. Even Tooba stood out beautifully, along with Adeel Hussain and Ali Kazmi. If you’ve a nephew abroad, you will definitely fall in love with the acting of child artist Musa.

Divorce being a controversial topic in Pakistan, this movie beautifully portrays the struggle of a wife, mother and a daughter in law. I would definitely rate this movie 3.5/5 for an elegant portrayal of this bold story. However,  they can work a bit more on the storyline as it was weak. You won’t want to watch it Dobara Phir Se :) 


I realised much earlier in my career that marketing is all about sharing stories with one another and it was no secret that social media marketing will be the key to rising above the noise. Since that day, till my post-graduate studies with marketing as majors, I’ve never let go of understanding the art of making others talk on the web ‘comfortably’. I’ve made my point that instead of selling your product or service based on its features focus on telling a compelling story, as Seth Godin rightly said. By using proven methods and also adding innovative techniques to produce the result, I was able to filter out the hype and constantly evolve with technology. It sure is very challenging to stand out your business with millions of new tweets, information updates, blog posts, videos and news stories posted every day, from all around the globe. But if you won’t start now then it will get only more difficult and keep getting difficult as you hesitate more. So embrace it with joy, you’ll be surprised with the benefits of relationships, if not of the medium I,being a Social Media Specialist oversee and implement the organization’s social media activities by directly engaging with audience over various social media channels.
