Arth – The Destination, actor-director Shaan Shahid’s long-awaited reboot of the 1982 Mahesh Bhatt classic of the same name, finally has release on December 21.

The new movie, titled Arth 2, stars Shaan Shahid, Humaima Malick, Uzma Hassan and Mohib Mirza. It has been made with a local and indigenous narrative suited to local conditions, with reports saying the remake is a contemporary retelling of the original story and will be set in Lahore.

 

The romantic musical explores the concept of self-discovery and how each one of us is responsible for writing our own story. The film focuses on a deceitful marriage and heartbreaks that come with it.

Despite strong performances by all four characters, the film not have expertise on technical grounds. But apart from the flaws in production, the musical score gained momentum for the film. The Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Sahir Ali Bagga duet “Murshed ji” was especially pleasing along with “Sanwar De Khudaya”.
