In recent times, there has been a tremendous growth on the digital platform. ZEE5, one of the top contributors in digital content, has created roaring responses amongst the web watchers with shows coming out from diverse genres. Hence, ZEE5 has, within a short period of time, garnered exponential success in becoming one of the largest OTT platforms in India. The high quality oriented, content-driven and realistically filmed stories have honoured the success of ZEE5 originals. Now ZEE5 is back with yet another freshly brewed story – Kaafir, which has piqued audiences’ interests ever since it has released its first motion poster.
Also, the teaser-trailer for Kaafir, that stars Mohit Raina and Dia Mirza in lead roles, was released recently on ZEE5. The teaser looks undeniably promising and we can feel a scintillating story coming our way. The picturesque views are amazingly shot leading us to believe that the cinematography is remarkable. Check out the teaser of Kaafir to get a glimpse into my feedback below.
The title of the series itself carries deep meaning which means a person who covers or hides the truth. Going by its name, it can be said that it is a “Tale of the Untold”, which is soon going to be told. Based on true incidents, Kaafir tells the story of a Pakistani woman who is not allowed to come out to meet her own daughter. The story is said to revolve around the sad story of Kainaz and the tragic circumstances that led to her separation with her daughter.
Dia Mirza looks absolutely gorgeous as Kainaz in the teaser as she carries a simplistic look which appears to be masking an intense story beneath. Her silence speaks throughout not giving away anything, thus, guarding the suspense which will be uncovered in the series. Especially, from the way she emotes her facial expression at the last of the trailer, we can say we are in for a stellar performance from her. Read more on Dia’s experience on working for Kaafir.
Mohit Raina plays the role of a Kashmiri journalist who insists on meeting with Kainaz to know about her story and tell the world about it. He must go through lots of resistance to reach his goal. But his persistence will finally take him to his destiny like the tagline says- the only impossible journey is the one you never begin! What destiny will this journey lead to is for the series to unfold?
The teaser is successful in maintaining the intrigue throughout without giving away too many details. It has a visually stunning play of scenes and captivating music in the background which makes it look fantastic.
Slated to premiere this 15th June exclusively on ZEE5, this fascinating story has been written by Bhavani Iyer and directed by Sonam Nair. Siddharth P. Malhotra and Sapana Malhotra have executively produced this show under the banner of Alchemy Films. The producers have spent enormous efforts into making this project outstanding as can be seen from the stunning cinematography and intriguing premise. Judging by the teaser, Sonam Nair has done a commendable job directing it to realistic perfection.
In a nutshell, the teaser gives hints of what a critically blockbuster movie should look like. It’s delightful and spellbinding. We wish the team best for the success of the series which we think is a definite fate for this heart rendering piece.
