Aijaz Aslam starring as Zahid in an action thriller with supernatural elements brings Pakistani fans immense joy. The story revolves around a self-conflicted medical sales rep who finds a diary written in his own handwriting however he does not remember writing the entries. The film charts out the next twenty four hours in explicit detail.
The diary tells Zahid to not question anything and set out on a journey to follow the orders written in the diary. Zahid ignites a chain reaction that will change his own future…a future that needs to come to pass, without his consent or volition.
Produced by Zaid Aziz, Future Imperfect is written, directed, co-cinematographed, edited by Mohammad Kamran Jawaid. “This is not like the typical storytelling formulas or themes we see on television”, said Aslam. “The concept and the shooting style will give something new and exciting to the viewers”.
“Even though it was grueling, the film was something which I looked forward to shooting every day, from early morning till late at night”, Aslam said. Speaking about the lead actor, Khaled Anam said that Zahid’s character was “Outstandingly, brilliantly, acted by Aijaz Aslam – if it is not his best performance, then it is one of his best performances”. He added, “What I like about the script is that it is really fast-paced. There are no lags in shots, there are no useless music margins left over, no trying to stretch scenes longer than necessary. It is very fast. The overall story is very interesting and very different, and that is what made me sign this project”.
“Change is always for the better. It defines a new way”, Anam went on to say. “Thought and directed out of the box, Future Imperfect is not run-of-the-mill stuff. When you see it, you would feel that this is quite a bit different than the norm. I didn’t want to use this cliched sentence, but this time around, it is actually the case. Maybe, you’d have to watch it more than once, to really get it”, Anam said while discussing the complicated nature of the story that is set in both the present and the future.
“This film will define a new way for the Pakistani entertainment industry. That these types of films can be made in Pakistan. By all standards this film can compete in international markets, anywhere in the world”, Anam said.
