Choker with beads is worn in events. These are mostly available in black and white colors. This is why these can be worn with all types of clothes.
Despite its light-hearted veneer, Janaan takes on the task of challenging stereotypes and focusing on a strong social message. The filmmakers speak to DESTINATIONS about why the film will resonate with a wide audience.
Janaan promises to be a gloriously escapist film full of comedy, romance, action and thrills. Set in Swat and Islamabad, it tells the story of expat Meena (Armeena Rana Khan) who returns from Canada to attend her cousin’s wedding. As if culture shock wasn’t enough, Meena finds out her family is plotting an engagement with either of her cousins Daniyal (Ali Rehman Khan) or Asfandyar (Bilal Ashraf).
The movie apparently features hilarious antics from Ali Rehman as cool Isloo boy Daniyal and that rom-com staple – a love-hate relationship, in this case between Meena and arrogant Pathan Asfandyar. There’s plenty of comedic potential in the expats returning to their ethnic roots and the young cast has been showing engaging comic wackiness in interviews and on social media as they promote the film.
Bilal Ashraf’s brooding good looks are belied by a ready wit while Ali Rehman seems to have one-liners on tap. Armeena Khan looks pretty as a picture but also has spunkiness and charm. Their vibrant personalities are encouraging because the producers have taken a risk with a relatively inexperienced cast – none of whom have previously headlined a film.
“All of our leads were our first choices for their roles,” asserts producer Imran Raza Kazmi. “They combine acting ability and the look that we wanted for each character. Armeena in particular is very under-rated and has previously been given stereotypical roles that don’t do justice to her range.”
Kazmi is certainly intrepid in his casting decisions. He spotted Hania Aamir dubsmashing on Instagram and ended up giving her a small but significant role.
“I go with my instinct. It’s easy to sell a movie with faces but for us casting is all about the story we want to tell. Every single one of our actors gave incredible auditions and our decisions were vindicated as we moved to shooting,” he says.
In one respect, fresh talent is an asset. With so few real stars in Pakistan’s newly burgeoning film industry, there’s a danger of audiences tiring of seeing the same faces over and over.
The production team, in comparison, has more experience. Director Azfar Jafri and producers Imran Raza Kazmi and Hareem Farooq worked together on the critically-acclaimed 2013 horror film Siyaah, though at that time Hareem was acting in the film rather than producing it.
“Acting is one of my passions but production is equally important. Film is a great medium to bring about change in society; it can really alter mindsets and break taboos,” says Hareem. “Moving into production is not about making money, it’s about challenging small-mindedness and of course, telling great stories.”
She goes on to reveal that, despite being a family entertainer with plenty of romance and laughter, Janaan also has a thought-provoking social message.
“We don’t want to reveal more at this stage but suffice to say that we want to make people think about our society,” she says.
Beyond the social message of the film, the team also aims to challenge stereotypes. “We wanted to give what we feel is a proper representation of Pakistan, particularly of Pakhtoon culture, to show the world that we are as ‘abnormally normal’ as everyone else,” says Kazmi.
Hareem, Kazmi and Jafri all admitted to being frustrated by the constant depiction of Pathans as terrorists in films. They worried that, even in Pakistan itself, people seem to think that Pakhtoons are all conservative and that there are extremists everywhere in Swat. It seemed important to show that you shouldn’t stereotype by ethnicity. It was thus a conscious decision to focus on a narrative that people could relate to.
“Janaan is really about human connections and the little things in life. It centres around an upper class Pakhtoon family wedding and is full of relatable situations and characters,” Kazmi continues.
While that hints at inspiration from Bollywood, director Azfar Jafri claims differently, “I definitely am influenced by certain filmmaking styles but not by any specific country or genre. For me, it’s all about creating quality, intelligent cinema.” Producer Kazmi is also keen to emphasize, that unlike many Pakistani directors, Jafri’s background is neither television serials nor shooting commercials. “Azfar came to filmmaking from doing animation and video effects rather than dramas. I think his career arc has given him a unique freshness of vision,” he says.
While the director veers away from Bollywood comparisons, the editor is actually a Bollywood insider. He has worked on Dhoom 3 and was an associate on Rab Ne Bana Di Jori.
The decision to bring in an Indian editor was prompted by the very nascent nature of the Pakistani film revival. Like many professionals in our film industry, the majority of editors have graduated from television. There is a palpable sense that they are adapting to demands of a very different medium, evidenced by films such as Bin Roye.
“While we have an abundance of talent, we lack the experience and depth of resources that a well- developed film industry has. We are constantly having to make do and improvise,” says Kazmi, who made his first film Siyaah with a budget of just Rs. 800,000. While Janaan is on a much bigger scale, no Pakistani movie can afford the sort of budgets that Bollywood films have at their disposal. Despite the success that Pakistani films have seen in the last year or two, filmmaking remains a labour of love in this country.
“Janaan is really about

little things in life. It centres

Tight budgets were not the only issue; shooting in Swat brought its own challenges. While the scenery is spectacular, the team found themselves struggling to make the most of the light every day as locations were often two or three hours apart and transportation was not an easy task.
Lahore’s oldest surviving bazaar was once the center of culture and style; and remains a popular shopping destination even today. Delve into the history, legend and romance of the bustling market as we take you for a walk into the past.
Anarkali – the name has the ability to evoke a variety of emotions depending on one’s disposition. Shopaholics experience a rush of adrenaline at the thought of all the bargains on offer within the narrow alleyways of the thriving market. History buffs prefer to delve deep into the past and ponder over Anarkali’s Mughal and colonial heritage. And those who love a good tale remain forever enchanted by the myth that defines the origins of the bazaar.
The legend of Anarkali – the beautiful courtesan who seduced the Mughal Prince Saleem only to be entombed alive in a wall for her transgression by Salim’s father Emperor Akbar – has inspired poetry, music and films but no tribute is as enduring as the tomb built by the grieving Prince in her memory. Completed by Emperor Jehangir aka Prince Salim in 1615 to mark the spot where she was buried, the tomb gave name to the bazaar that sprung up around it during the time of the British, close to 200 years ago.
The history of Anarkali, that heaving, bustling maze of congested streets and tiny shops located outside the Lohari Gate, can be traced back to colonial times. According to noted travel writer Salman Rashid, the area originally served as barracks for the British Indian Army for a short while when troops moved into the Punjab following the clash of 1857. The cantonment soon shifted to Mian Mir, and the street became primarily residential. Eventually, business establishments began to flourish on the ground floors of the residential complexes, and over time, Anarkali became known as the poshest bazaar of its time.
“In the 50s and the 60s, Anarkali was the only market in Lahore,” recalls Rashid. “Back then, the city had a total of 200-300 automobiles and when ten cars gathered close to the bazaar, it created veritable chaos. Anarkali was home to locally made products; none of the Chinese stuff that has flooded the market these days. The one shop that stands out in my memory is the Kanpur Leather Store known for its stout leather suitcases the likes of which were not found elsewhere.”
Other old establishments included Inayatullah, known for its overcoats, dressing gowns and dress shirts, Bombay Cloth House, with its treasure trove of imported materials and saris of the finest French chiffon and softest English voile and Mohkham Din Bakery, renowned for its delectable confections. For a generation that saw Anarkali in all its glory, the sight is one that is hard to forget. Indian writer and scholar Pran Nevile, who was born in Lahore, reminisces fondly about the bazaar in his book Lahore: A Sentimental Journey. “With the passage of time, Anarkali grew richer and more captivating,” he writes. “By the late 1930s, it had become the most fashionable shopping center of the city and bevies of elegantly dressed women also began visiting it.”
Describing the bazaar’s significance as a social and cultural hotspot, he writes, “Anarkali had also grown up as a place of recreation with a host of restaurants and bars, patronized by the landed gentry of Punjab and western UP who came to Lahore on a spending spree.” Today, the market may have lost its glamorous veneer but within its various iterations it still holds a significant appeal for those looking to sample a taste of the Lahore that used to be. Old Anarkali is known for its food street, where you can taste Punjabi street food at its best. Bano Bazaar is a kaleidoscope of colour offering a dizzying assortment of trinkets and accessories. Paan Gali brings a slice of Delhi to Lahore, with its wide offerings of Indian goods ranging from saris and jamavars, to herbal products, oils, bindis and rangolis.
Vibrant and chaotic, Anarkali embodies Lahore’s spirit of grandeur, contradictions and co-existence. Amongst shops selling everything from stationery to handembroidered khussas to fresh nimbo paani, you’ll spot architectural styles derived from the various eras to have shaped the city’s cultural ethos – from Mughal to Sikh to British. Sandwiched between buildings in the traditional sub-continental design adorned with wooden jhorakas lies the Anarkali Church, a red and yellow building that speaks of European influence. Sikh architecture is visible in the rounded cupolas of General Allard’s tomb near the historic Jain Mandir.
Not many visitors to Anarkali know that located inside one of the narrow alleyways exists the mausoleum of Qutub-din Aibak, the slave general of Mohammad Ghauri and the founder of the Slave Dynasty in South Asia. He was killed playing polo in Lahore and was buried at Anarkali. The tomb was originally constructed in 1210 and renovated by the government in the 1970s.
It is surprises such as this, and so many more, that add to the charm of the market – a beguiling mix of commerce, legend, history and that indefatigable spirit that makes Lahore such a culturally rich destination.
Hyderabad’s Bangle Market is a kaleidoscope of colour and a testament to the skill of the generational craftsmen who produce its vibrant wares.
Eight kilometres south of main Shahi Qila Chowk, the crowded streets of Hyderabad, teeming with rickshaws, cars and motorbikes, converge on to a cloth market that is much like any bazaar you would find elsewhere in the country – a collection of concrete buildings with apartments on the top floors and tiny shops along the street, displaying their merchandise on the footpath. Swathes of embroidered cloth flutter in the humid air while Chinese imports of cosmetics and accessories beckon luridly.
The pedestrian streets weaving through the market are not meant for vehicular traffic; my rickshaw driver deposits me a few blocks away and I complete the remainder of the distance on foot. The cloth market itself might be unremarkable but tucked within its depth is a unique landmark; and it is to photograph this marvel that I’ve undertaken the journey from my hometown Karachi despite the sweltering heat.
Amidst the congested stalls of the cloth bazaar, a tiny entrance leads to a narrow alley. There is no signboard and none is needed; just ask for ‘Choori Gali’ (Bangle Market) and dozens of hands will lift to point you in the right direction. Row upon row of glittering bangles, in a mind-boggling array of colours and styles, greet me as I step inside the Choori Gali. The salesmen, lolling around shop fronts and engaging in banter given the lack of customers this early in the morning, suddenly snap to attention. “Aajai, baithay (come, sit),” they beckon, pointing to their display of beautiful ornaments set up behind glass counters. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman; they seek everyone as a potential customer.
Hyderabad, Pakistan’s fourth largest city, is known for its handmade products but perhaps none define it better than bangles – that glittering ornament that no South Asian festivity is complete without. The city’s Choori Gali or Bangle Market is the largest wholesale bazaar of its kind in the country, consisting not only of shops selling the product but a huge network of manufacturing and designs units that produce bangles known for their high quality all over Pakistan.
The retail side of the market is primarily the narrow alley through which I entered, with around thirty shops on either side. Business is slow in the mornings, given the high temperatures that hit Hyderabad but once the sun goes down and the weather takes a turn for the better, shoppers begin to crowd around the colourful displays. “Men and women both are our customers. The men buy for their wives or sisters who cannot make it to the market while our primary costumers are women,” says Mohammad Ayub, who owns a small shop in the market.
Walking down the street, I am greeted by the tantalizing aroma of samosas and pakoras being fried next to tea-stalls and eventually exit into an open area flanked by buildings that house the small factories.
Unlike the shopping street, this part of the bazaar is characterized by frenzied activity. Men of all ages are busy at work. I barely move out of the way as a four-wheeled cart loaded with bundles of bangles lumbers down the path. Nearby, a teenaged boy whistles loudly to signal his approaching arrival as he carries glass bangles threaded into a rope. Trucks stand ready in the centre of the square, loaded with boxes that are to be sent to other parts of the country. This bustle continues throughout the day.
The smell I encounter here is unlike the familiar aroma of fried delicacies I had chanced upon earlier; it is pungent and chemical in nature. The source, I discover, is the ‘liquid gold’ that is being used by artisans to coat the glass bangles. The known history of bangles as a form of ornamentation can be dated back to 5,000 years ago, based on the remains of a dancing girl statute found at a Mohenjodaro excavation site in Sindh. The modern-day glass bangle, however, began manufacturing around a hundred years ago in a small town called Firozabad in Uttar Pradesh, India. After partition, many of the craftsmen and artisans who were part of the bangle industry migrated to Pakistan and settled in Hyderabad.
One of them was a man named Rustum Ustad, not only a craftsman par excellence but also a shrewd businessman. He can be credited for initiating the bangle-producing industry in Hyderabad, for he was the first of Firozabad’s artisans to set up production in the new country. His grandson, Azhar Hussain Siddique, is currently the representative of the union office of the Bangle Market.
“There are around 2,000 shops in the area that are associated with bangle production,” says Azhar. “When my father started off, there were only about ten shops here but now close to twenty hundred thousand men and women in Hyderabad are associated with the work.”
The sound of tinkling glass holds my attention and I look around to see a few workers huddled around a small glass bottle. They take a bangle and hit it on the bottle and based on the sound it makes, can tell if the bangle is broken or intact. The ones deemed fit for further processing are coated with the liquid gold by artisans who use special brushes to create intricate designs.
From here, they are carted off to the furnace factories located right behind the market where the bangles are arranged in a single layer and ‘baked’ inside huge ovens to give the liquid gold a desired temperature, whereby it attains its original glittering sheen. “The production cycle of the bangle, from manufacturing to retail, goes through 20 to 30 stages depending on style and design,” reveals Azhar.
“We get plain bangles from the factories, we sort them out by weight and size, take them for cutting and design work and then sell them in the wholesale market,” says Khalid Raza Mirza, who runs a small wholesale business in the market.
Khalid is well-versed in the trade, for he has been a bangle-seller all his life. It’s what he grew up seeing his father do as well. “I have seen a lot of changes in the business for the years. Now we have modern machinery to make the bangles which has increased production rates,” he says. “It used to be manual till a few years ago, but technology has made it easier and also more innovative. We have machines that can emboss different patterns and designs on bangles,” he adds.
Since bangles are favoured by women during all festive occasions – be it weddings, parties or Eid – the business runs throughout the year, though peak times are usually before the festivals of Eid or during December, which is wedding season. The salesmen particularly look forward to the month of Ramazan, especially the days after the tenth roza, as Eid shopping reaches a frantic pace and women crowd the market looking for the perfect accessory to match their Eid finery. “The market is open throughout the night on Chand Raat and that’s when we make the most sales,” says Khalid.
I am told that the latest trend in bangle-design is to have the wearer’s name engraved on the ornament and these are favoured particularly during weddings. Such designs are made only on special order, though. The more traditional types of bangles are the Sath Rangi (seven coloured) or Panch Rangi (five coloured).
By now the sun is setting and the market has lit up, making its displays look even more vibrant. Shoppers start to trickle in as I head out, the images of the colourful and festive chooriyan fresh in my mind.
