Finally, it comes. The trailer of Nabeel Qureshi’s ‘Khel Khel Mein’ is inspired by the true events that took place at Dhaka fall 1971 eventually forming Bangladesh. The trailer displays flashbacks from that era that announce the split between East and West Pakistan. It brings to us a furious Sajal Aly who wishes to perform a theatrical act on the untold facts of this dark chapter in a competition held in the same city. Her decision faces severe backlash from the university faculty and causes tribulations amongst the students as well.
The trailer ends with a voiceover from Sajal and Bilal, “Aik jaisa hi pyaar nikle ga, dil ki lelein talaashiyan donoun. Aik ghalti hui, kisi se bhi, maang lete hain, maafiyaan donoun. The love you find will be the same in both of our hearts. A mistake was made, by one or the other, let us both ask for forgiveness.”

The film seems to be based heavily on the flashbacks that seriously give us some ‘Rang De Basanti’ vibes. Having said that, the lead actors Bilal Abbas and Sajal Aly shine throughout. Shehreyar Munwar is impressive in the few glimpses that we get to see. The dialogues by Fizza Ali Meerza & Nabeel Qureshi pack a solid punch.
