In the action thriller film ‘Future Imperfect’ based on supernatural elements, actor Aijaz Aslam is playing the role of a self-conflicted medical representative named Zahid who suffers from a mental disorder.

In the film, the character finds a diary written in his own handwriting, but can’t recall when he wrote the diary. The content of the diary is astonishing to Zahid as it clearly details the next 24 hours of Zahid’s life.

According to the diary, the only rule of life for Zahid is to follow what is written without asking any questions. Those written orders will force Zahid to do something that will change his future against his will.

The film is produced by Zaid Aziz under the production company Vox Vision.

The film’s director Mohammad Kamran Jawaid said, “I have always been intrigued by anthology shows that had supernatural or fantastic and far-fetched overtones, like the Twilight Zone and the Black Mirror, so when producer Zaid Aziz approached me to do a ‘different’ project, I felt it was the right time to make a statement, of sorts,”

The producer of the film Zaid Aziz said, “As a producer, I am always keen on pushing the boundaries”,

“With Future Imperfect, the attraction to the genre and the type of story we were going to tell, was immediate, but more than that it was the challenge to do it within our resources”, Aziz added.

Zaid Aziz has previously produced projects such as The Early Days and Aurat Aur Mard.

Director Kamran Jawaid said, “More than anything, we wanted to prove a point: in Pakistan storytellers are often stonewalled when they propose projects in genres that are out of the norm. Doing a project with action elements is deemed expensive and undoable, even in film. Doing it within the scope and limitations of a telefilm is unfathomable.”

Actor Aijaz Aslam said, “This is not like the typical storytelling formulas or themes we see on television. The concept and the shooting style will give something new and exciting to the viewers”.

“Working with Kamran Jawaid as a director was a tremendous learning experience for me. I didn’t feel for one second that it was his debut. He had done his research well and exactly knew what he wanted from his shots and his actors. His screenplay was very well defined, up to the point that even minor details were written, so it was very easy for the actors to understand the whole situation”.
