‘Kamli’ trailer feels ‘straight-out-of-a-novel’

The trailer for Sarmad Sultan Khoosat’s film ‘Kamli’ got released on April 1 to the incredulity of the Pakistani viewers who are now on tenterhooks, for the trailer promises everything but clichés.

Opening with a setting and a look which reminds people of Bapsi Sidhwa’s woman-oriented novel ‘Water’ bringing together the society’s females grouped and subjected to the strangest of customs, ‘Kamli’ too, at certain points in the trailer, hints at a far-away land acting as the setting of the story where raw nature exists, be it in the form of human beings or plants.

Lakes, rabbits and cats characterize the surroundings of female characters played by Saba Qamar and Sania Saeed, while in the parallel runs a socially-structured, organized form of human life being lived by characters portrayed by Omair Rana and Nimra Bucha to create a contrast between what is deemed sane and what is considered insane, the latter being the English translation for the film’s very title – ‘Kamli’.

The trailer does not offer any dialogues, but only actions which are suggestive of creative film-making at its best, for they alone create enough intensity to bring viewers on the edge of their seats. ‘Kamli’ is slated for release on June 3 this summer, and boasts of all mature artists coming together to bring a visual as well as a musical treat.
