Sonya Hussyn’s dramatic and commanding performance in the new film Daadal has been much praised. Haya Baloch, played by Hussyn, is a hitwoman who aims to avenge women who have been wronged by abusive husbands. An unforgettable sequence happens right before the interval, in which Haya explains the driving force behind her murderous rampage.
Adnan Shah Tipu, Rizwan Ali Jaffri, Mohsin Abbas Haider, and Shamoon Abbasi are among the notable actors in Abu Aleeha’s and Neha Laaj’s film Daadal, which also features an impressive cast. Their journey into the seedy, violent underground is chronicled on film.
Hussyn posted a little scene from the film in response to a review, along with a letter that summed up her thoughts. It took “shedding blood and sweat” (khoon paseena bahana), she wrote on Instagram, “to create this masterpiece.” As one member of the squad put it, “I remember the whole team working in [the] sweltering heat, physically getting hurt on different occasions, but it was all worth it.”
She went on, “I hold my character, Haya Baloch, very dear to me because she is the embodiment of who I am.” I see myself in this woman, and I see us all in her. To all the strong, independent, and fearless women out there: this one’s for you!
The actor went on to express his gratitude to the crew. I appreciate Abu Aleeha and Neha including me in the film. Having such a capable group of people along for the ride made the journey that much more enjoyable. I’m posting this trailer in the hopes that you’ll enjoy the film as much as you have my other work.
It’s in theatres right now. Please comment on it if you’ve seen it.
So far, Asrad Khan and Faraz Alam’s production and cinematography in Daadal have received high marks for their ingenuity. Hussyn received high praise for his substantial lead role. There has been considerable praise for its excellent moments and performances, while some have pointed out that the film drags in the second half. The film’s violent violence, gore, and adult language earned it a rating of U (for universal audiences) in Sindh and Punjab but an A (for adults) in Islamabad and regions under its authority.
