Cast & Crew
  • Pheray (1949), directed by Nazir Ahmed Khan, is a cinematic gem in Pakistani Punjabi cinema. A remake of Nazir's 1945 Indian film 'Gaon Ki Gori,' the movie features captivating music by Ghulam Ahmed Chishti and poignant lyrics by G. A. Chishti and Baba Alam Siaposh. With Munawar Sultana and Inayat Hussain Bhatti lending their voices, Pheray became Pakistan's first 'Silver Jubilee' film, screening for 25 weeks in Lahore and five weeks in Karachi.

    At its core, Pheray tells a timeless love story reminiscent of the Heer Ranjha folk tale. Sawarn Lata's love for Nazir faces familial resistance, leading to her marriage with M. Ismael. The iconic Hindu wedding ritual, the 'Pheray,' is symbolically enacted by Sawarn Lata's friend Zeenat. As the narrative unfolds, the film explores themes of love, sacrifice, and the triumph of true love against familial opposition. Pheray stands as a pioneering achievement in the early days of Pakistani cinema, blending compelling storytelling with enchanting music.
