Starting at the beginning, the trailer reveals a love triangle, as well as elements of corruption, immorality, and women being undermined or used in the face of strong political pressure. The clip presents Saba as yet another fierce phoenix of a woman who rises from the ashes to put men in their place, but the storyline is kept under wraps.
The film will look at how Saba’s character, a social media influencer-turned-actor, might go to lengths to show the males in her life that if they don’t pull up their socks to serve justice, women like her will have to reclaim power. However, the film is not solely focused on women.
Ghabrana Nahi Hai, in fact, appears to be filled by men prepared to fight crime — for their own reasons – and cause chaos otherwise. The teaser opens with Zahid’s character, a corrupt cop, raiding what appears to be a nightclub while a song plays in the background. “Ye Islami Jamhooria Pakistan hai, yahan sharab-noshi or jua jurm hai,” he says before offering empty luggage to start a ‘discussion.’
“Agar adalat men humari peshi hui, tou agli bar gaal, tumhara hoga sipahsalar,” Nayyer Ijaz, who appears to be repeating his villain role for the film, informs Zahid’s character in a subsequent scene. While Saba’s character’s father asks her, “Kya bigar legi unka? Beti hai! Beta hota tou jaake lar bhi leta unse (What will you do about them? You’re a daughter. If I had a son, he would’ve fought them).”
Saba is also seen romancing Zahid’s character before embarrassing him, offering him the choice of removing his uniform or removing the mirror from his residence, which allows him to gaze at himself without shame. Syed Jibran also appears in the film as a jealous friend or fiancé of Saba’s who can’t bear Zahid. However, in a bizarre twist of fate, Saba’s character ends up with Nayyer Ejaz, and we’ll have to see the movie to figure out why.
The teaser for the film had previously shown a bride storming into a wedding location crowded with surprised guests, looking poised for a confrontation, complete with gold chain-wearing gangsters, gun-wielding police officers, and sherwani-clad politicians. “Kya kuch nahin sochta insaan, kaisay kasiay sapnay dekhta hai,” she said at the start of the video. (A person thinks about a lot of things.) He has so many dreams).”
