KARACHI: The teaser for the threequel of film-maker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s 3 Bahadur has been released this week but it could not mesmerize the fans this time, reported sources.
The star-studded cast and music were the only spectacular things. The teaser begins with sounds of nature and advances towards more power-packed music insinuating towards the amount of action the film will offer.
The forthcoming animated movie entitled 3 Bahadur: Rise of the Warriors deals with the incursion of supernatural beings on Earth. The three main leads of the franchise namely Saadi, Amna and Kamil befriend a female superhero namely Erma, who belongs to another planet.
The idea of introducing a female superhero in the venture is being praised overall. Besides, some of the biggest names of the entertainment fraternity voice the characters.
Actress Mehwish Hayat will be voicing Erma. Whereas, Fahad Mustafa, Sarwat Gilani, Nimra Bucha, Behroz Sabzwari, and many others will also voice diverse characters.
The foremost film in the 3 Bahadur franchise was released back in 2015, which went to the top of the chart. Nevertheless, the 2017 sequel titled 3 Bahadur: Revenge of Baba Balaam, which had catchy and entertaining tracks, could not go too far as far as business is concerned.
John Angier’s soundtrack instilled much-required depth and intensity, particularly in the climax. When it comes to visuals, colors, and textures, the makers did a great job for taking Pakistan’s animation to the next level. (Aiman Inam)
