About this Film


ODEON says...
Present-day. Karachi. When the ageing patriarch of the Jamali family is taken ill, his eldest daughter and sole caregiver, Zareen, is forced to reconnect with her sister, Zara, on her return from London. Burdened with guilt and resentments, the sisters must confront old secrets and realise that sometimes the only way for a family to move on, is by finding a way back.

At its core, "Cake" is a film about the passage of time seen through the eyes of one family and offers a heartfelt look at the realities of life, of past and present, of choices and consequences.

The film stars leading Pakistani actors, Sanam Saeed, Aamina Sheikh and Adnan Malik IN pivotal roles and is the debut feature for writer / director Asim Abbasi. It is produced by Indus Talkies and ZAB Films, with renowned UK businessman Sayed Zulfikar Bukhari on board as the Executive Producer.

What a brilliant movie. Loved the plot was very real and relatable. Sanam Saeed was phenomenal as Zara. Loved the emotions she portrayed. She can play any role to perfection. Also loved Beo Rana Zafar as Habiba. Loved the movie. A lot to learn and take home. Makes you appreciate your family. An emotional roller coaster ride. Hats off to the entire team.

A well written realistic story. Great performances all round. Exemplary of the new emerging cinema. A must watch.
