Jannat Zubair Rahmani is a Pakistani singer, songwriter, and actress. Like many Pakistani artists, she has made a name for herself in the music industry. This award-winning actress rose to fame during the 1980s in television, where her exploits on screen mirrored her personal life. Her first major role was in the TV series “Chak De! Pakistan” as a villainous character.
As the show progressed, she became more popular. After seven seasons, she went into action-packed movies, which earned her four awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the MTV Music Awards. She then went on to star in her own personal hit television show, “The X Files.” Her latest venture into entertainment is with the movie “Man vs. Shark.”
The movie is an offshoot of the successful action-thriller “Jungle Jim.” Although it is based on a different plot, it nevertheless features a similar set of characters. This is evident by the engaging storyline as well as the stellar performances from its lead actors. The movie’s cinematography also impresses.
This film depicts an underwater encounter between a giant stingray and a jellyfish. The interesting interaction that takes place between the two creatures is the primary plot. The jellyfish manages to get the stingray to regenerate and attack the jellyfish. This is after the fish has been injected with a deadly virus. It causes the jellyfish to mutate into a terrible creature.
The plot then revolves around the recovery of this unstoppable killing machine. There is a lot of mystery surrounding it, which is somewhat appropriate. Who are these creatures, who are their enemies, and what is with their strange mutating powers? These are only some of the questions that are answered throughout the course of the film.
The underwater world of Jannat is a beautiful place. It is populated by colorful marine life. This is another one of the highlights of Jannat Zubair Rahmani. This paradise is under threat though, as a storm approaches. An ancient pirate ship that belonged to a mysterious pirate king is attacked.
The Sting Ray manages to escape the burning vessel and goes after the jellyfish. He tries to poison the jellyfish but ends up killing them. Jannat meanwhile finds out that the leader of the pirates is seriously ill. This causes him to go on a deadly mission to find the antidote for this sickness.
The plot eventually leads to the coming of another jellyfish creature. This one proves to be smarter than the jellyfish that appeared earlier. It also shows how human beings can sometimes fall for false security. Overall, Jannat Zubair Rahmani is a fantastic action film that lots of people will find interesting.
There are a few scenes that are not very appealing to the eyes. I especially disliked the way the characters of this film were designed. You will get a feel for this from the way some of the special effects are done. For instance, in the scene where one of the characters is holding a sword aimed at his forehead. I found that the effect looked artificial and that it did not really resemble how a real sword would look. Despite these minor issues, Jannat is a fantastic film.
When the credits finally begin to roll, you are left wondering whether or not this film has everything that you have been hoping for. After all, it starts with a strange underwater sequence where we are introduced to the creatures of Jannat. We then see how they form a society and the way in which they survive. Finally, we are introduced to the antagonist, an ancient pirate who commands a small fleet.
This is a film that requires some intense close-up work. The entire bulk of the film takes place on the water. The fight scenes are done on land but you must really be able to see what these two men are doing. Plus, the villain is heavily implied to be a waterman. He comes across as rather bland and lacks personality but when it comes to fighting, he does his job admirably. When it comes down to it, this film is about two men who decide to sail their ship and find love, but it is the manner in which the ship is steered and the way in which its passengers respond to events that make Jannat a fantastic action-thriller.
For anyone looking for a dark, mysterious, and even terrifying film, Jannat is definitely worth checking out. Even though it only has one really good scene, it is definitely worth the money. Jannat is due for a sequel, so those who have seen the film already can rest assured that the same basic story will continue. For those who have yet to see it, I recommend that you do so while you can. It is an engrossing and thought-provoking film that showcases some superb visual effects and a terrific script that could become part of the genre. Don’t miss out on Jannat Zubair Rahmani!
