    Seedlings : Aamina Sheikh's Debut to Silver Screen

    Movies give us the excitement, the rush, the medium of entertainment to bank upon. And when it’s a Pakistani movie, the excitement just increases manifolds. Our little birdie just whispered to us that a new movie has completed its post production and is all set to be released by the start of next year. The name of the movie is ‘Seedlings’, which is produced by Meher Jaffri, Summer Nicks and Craig Peter Jones under the banner of their production house, ‘Bodhicitta Works’.

    It is an Urdu film (its Urdu title yet to be confirmed) starring Aamina Sheikh, Mohib Mirza and Gohar Rasheed as the leads with Hira Tareen, Mehreen Rafi and Tara Mahmood in supporting roles. The original screenplay has been written by Summer Nicks and the film is directed by Mansoor Mujahid. The music has been composed by young and immensely talented Usman Riaz.

    Mansoor Mujahid is a Karachi based director who has completed a Writing degree from Boston University and studied Film and Television from Szbaist University. He has made a couple of short films that have subsequently earned him to receive Best Director and Best Actor nominations at the 2010 Leeds Metropolitan University Film Festival, UK.

    The cast includes names like Mohib Mirza and Aamina Sheikh that makes us look forward to the venture even more. Gohar Rasheed, though a relatively new face, is refreshing and we have high hopes from him. The story of the movie is still not revealed. In fact, nothing about the movie has been given out except for the cast’s names.

    With the credentials of the cast and crew, it’s not a surprise that we are already waiting for its release. All these professionals have proved themselves in their respective fields and are now ready to entertain us too. For now, we can just hope they have a gripping storyline with its share of twists and turns. Here’s hoping this film gives our local cinema, the much needed push towards revival.
