Chalay Thay Saath is one of those movies who rely heavily upon the majestic locations, beautiful shots and soothing music to be able to hookup you on your seat. And the film has done that exceptionally well. On the same hand, the film fails to offer any good writing and acting. It feels like one of those films who is forced to be made on a social issue.
The film starts with Resham (Syra Shehroz) introducing all the characters. She introduces them while making entries in her diary.
Then the film goes into flashbacks, to how and where the whole journey started. Then we see Resham who is local from the majestic Hunza valley being joined by her friends, (Mansha Pasha) and (Osama Tahir) playing a fighting couple and Faris Khalid being the loner. Later on, the tour guide stops to pick a sixth guest, Adam (Kent.S.Leung), a Chinese visitor in Pakistan.
The film offers a beautiful soundtrack with the likes of Bell, Moroo, East Side Story, Bakshi Brothers and Abbas Ali Khan lifting the mood when you’re convinced that it was a bad decision.
With having a stellar cast, The actors failed to impress on the wholesome. The only good performance from the cast came from Syra Shehroz, who did some brilliant scenes. Her performance was noteworthy.
On the whole, the movie is a good one time watch. Pakistani movies are reviving but obviously, it will take a lot of time to be able to produce a standard set by others.
FINAL RATING 3/5
