The epic trailer of the much anticipated telefilm Hangor was released on the golden anniversary of the day brave submariners of the Pakistan Navy aboard submarine Hangor successfully sunk an Indian navy warship INS Khukri and crippled down the 2nd warship INS Kirpan during the 1971 war.

This was the only recorded submarine kill after World War II until the Falklands War. The strategic impact was even more significant as the Indian Navy cancelled “Operation Triumph”, the third missile attack, which was to be launched on 10 December.

A telefilm based on true events from the 1971 Pakistan-India war, on such a crucial subject is a brave attempt by ARY Digital. It is a powerful testament to the heroic bravery of our submariners. The trailer shows a star-studded cast featuring Zahid Ahmed, Saba Qamar, Dur-e-Fishan Saleem, Affan Waheed, Haris Waheed, Javed Sheikh, Shehzad Sheikh and Nayyar Ejaz amongst others. 




Dressed in all white, the men in the telefilm look uber classy with the charisma and authority of a naval officer. It is written by Saji Gul and directed by Saqib Khan and the direction and production also look sharp with shots of the vast sea, submerged submarines and downpour.




The motion poster which was earlier released also seemed intriguing and the topic is one which is hardly explored on television in the last two decades. With a good cast and team, we are expecting an engaging tribute to the naval forces. Telefilm Hangor is produced under iDream Entertainment and will air on ARY Digital soon.
