Mahira Khan’s highly anticipated film ‘Verna’ is set to release in November, and hype around the film has thus far remained hush. With an emphatic poster of the actress in a vengeful demeanor and with cryptic messages trickling through, the prospect of a tangible trailer was awaited.
And now, Mahira Khan has released a small snippet of the film, and suffice to say we’re rather speechless. We might have just found our own ‘Tomb Raider’ with a splash of ‘Kill Bill’ ladies and gentlemen.
The intense snippet depicts Mahira Khan rush into a bathroom as Punjabi beat drops in the back
She’s distressed, angry and has revenge dripping in emotion as she starts beating a seemingly drowning individual in the bathtub
There’s a hand that comes out from the tub and grabs her, leaving us all wondering just who that could be
The rap, by XPolymer Dar, is powerful, zesty and has a string of rather crude words that only catalyzes Mahira’s dizzying breakdown in the scene
The snippet only spurs us on, begging the question as to what has led her to seek such glorified ‘Kill-Bill’ retribution
A blood splattered logo of ‘Verna’ emerges afterward, leaving us in complete awe of the man behind the film – Shoaib Mansoor
With this trailer, we also have a release date for the film, pushing aside all rumors about the delays
Pakistanis have naturally, gone absolutely crazy over the teaser
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.
