It's a monumental occasion for the Pakistani entertainment sector as the movie "Nayab," directed by Umair Nasir Ali, starring Yumna Zaidi and Usama Khan, achieved a historic milestone at the renowned Cannes Film Festival.

The film secured the prestigious accolades of 'Best Foreign Film,' and 'Best First-Time Filmmaker' in the feature film division.

That's an incredible achievement, considering the future prospects of Pakistani Cinema.

The debutant director, Umair Nasir Ali, ventured into the realm of sports drama with the release of Nayab.

The film boasts a star-studded cast, including Yumna Zaidi, M. Fawad Khan (Pyari Bitto), Javed Sheikh, Ehteshamuddin, and Adnan Siddiqui in significant roles.

Nayab isn't ypical sports drama; instead, it delves into the aftermath of tense situations in Karachi. The film sheds light on how dreams can be shattered, how hopes can bloom, and the struggles faced by middle-class individuals trying to make ends meet.

 In addition to these themes, the film introduces a cricket enthusiast, a young girl, who, under the guidance of her elder brother, passionately pursues her love for the sport. Despite facing rejection and reluctance from their father, she manages to find a way to join a cricket camp.

Nayab's journey is one of ambition, as she navigates challenges and attempts to reconcile her dreams with familial expectations.

However, there is a significant amount of drama as well. Multiple characters are engaged in their own battles—struggles for survival, pursuing dreams, protecting their loved ones, and seeking peace, among others.

The director attempts to infuse various emotions and transitions swiftly from one setting to another, but at snail pace making the story drag and become unnecessarily lengthy.
