Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar-directed Kaaf Kangana hit the cinema screens across the country on October 25. The film is a project of Pakistan’s Armed Forces’ media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). Does this mean that the film lovers got attracted to it because of ISPR? Let’s know.
The cast of the movie includes Sami Khan, Eshal Fayyaz, Ayesha Omer, Sajid Hassan, and Neelum Muneer who did item song in the movie. The releasing date of Kaaf Kangana clashed with another Pakistani movie Durj which is directed by Shamoon Abbasi. However, both the movies failed to please the Pakistani audience and became major disappointment for already struggling film industry.

Because of the director of the movie, Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar, who was being widely praised for his script and dialogues in Humayun Saeed and Ayeza Khan-starer super-hit drama Mere Paas Tum Ho, fans were enthralled with the release of Kaaf Kangana. However, the movie failed to deliver and did not meet the hopes of film lovers.

On the other hand, Shamoon Abbasi’s Durj movie also disappointed the audience. Though the screenplay and the performance by the cast was said to be attractive, but the fans did not like the story as it portrayed cannibalism and some thought that it brought shame to Pakistan internationally.
In Kaaf Kangana, it was said that as it is a ISPR-funded movie, it will be a big blast after its release. Sadly, despite of a great director, the film did not attract the audience much and, therefore, it flopped completely. Furthermore, not even a single song of the movie made it to the favorite list of people.
Neelum Muneer’s item song
Neelum Muneer performed on item song Khabon Main in Kaaf Kangana. The song is composed by our very favorite Sahir Ali Bagga and Aima Baig lent her voice for the song. However, after severe criticism by her fans for doing such a creepy item number, Neelum took to social media to defend herself. The actress said that she did this item number just because it was a project of ISPR.
“Perhaps this is the first and last item song of my life. But you all know that whatever I do, I own it and I do it with pride. Pakistan key liay meri jan hamesha hazir hay,” Neelum said.
