After a whole month of fasting in Ramadan, comes Eid ul Fitr, a celebration for those who spent the entire month praying and seeking forgiveness from Allah. But with the end of Ramzan comes the joy, be it in the form of holidays or get together. People are now preparing themselves to spend some quality time with their families and friends living in native villages. Others are busy in doing last minute shopping and to see the “Eid ki Ronaq” that you only get to see two times a year. While some are busy preparing Sheer Khorma (as no Eid is complete without it) and dishes for family lunch on Eid day.
Eid arrives and our media is full of Eid Dramas and special Eid Transmissions. Morning Shows, Telefilms, Dramas, based on the theme of Eid, are specially recorded to make this occasion more joyful. Not only our silver screen but our big screen is also been releasing many block buster movies on Eid. Nowadays, producers prefer to announce the release of their movies on special occasions like Eid, Dewali, Christmas, etc and following the same trends, our producers have also been releasing their movies on big screens on the eves of Eid from the past 3-4 years.
Eid ul Fitr 2017 is also packed with Pakistani Movies but Hollywood and Bollywood movies will also be releasing on the same day, giving Pakistani Movies a tough time. Here is the list of movies to look forward on this Eid.
The most expensive movie of Pakistan will be releasing on Eid ul Fitr 2017. The cast of highly talented actors/actresses will be seen in military uniforms. Hope their missions are accomplished.
