The much-anticipated Umro Ayyar: A New Beginning is set to release in cinemas this Eid.

The Pakistani film is based on the classical Urdu-Persian novel Hamzanama’s character of Umro Ayyar, a thief and legendary warrior of Tilism-e-Hoshruba, from Dastan-e-Amir Hamza. 

Amar, descendant of the legendary Umro Ayyar, a cunning warrior of Persian folklore, is a quantum mechanics professor in Pakistan. Surviving a Jinn attack, his third eye opens, revealing the hidden energy matrix interwoven with humanity and Jinn.

Intrigued, he seeks the true nature of energy, blending ancient wisdom with modern science.

As he navigates this dual reality, he discovers his lineage's profound responsibility in maintaining balance.

With wit inherited from Umro Ayyar, he ventures into a realm where fable meets reality, determined to unravel mysteries that transcend time and space.

The film stars an ensemble cast of Sanam Saeed, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Usman Mukhtar, Faran Tahir, Ali Kazmi, Adnan Siddiqui and Sana Nawaz. 

A film by VR Chilli Productions, directed by Azfar Jafri, produced by Huma Babur is all set to release worldwide on Eid this June.
