First teaser for the highly anticipated biopic ‘Chaudhary – The Martyr’ is finally dropped on YouTube. However, as not expected, the trailer with its additional glitz and irrelevant elements has failed to captivate the audience and create uproar among the viewers.
Chaudhary – The Martyr is a film tribute dedicated to an audacious late SSP of Karachi Chaudhary Aslam. The enthusiastic fighter had dedicated his whole existence to the city of lights, combatting the criminals to eliminate delinquency from the city. It was on account of his plucky spirit and fearless mind, SSP Aslam was recognized as a voice of terror among the enemies of state.
In 2004, the officer was selected to lead the Lyari Task Force and given the job of ending the gang violence in Karachi’s infamous district. From 2005-2014 Chaudhry Aslam arrested massive bunches of terrorists, gangwar-criminals, target killers and extortionists belonging to multiple political parties. Nevertheless, it was until 9 January 2014, that Aslam’s battle against terrorism served to be his last call of duty, as he embraced martyrdom in a bomb blast. Aslam died after serving the police department for 30 years.
Hence, to treasure and appreciate the services of the valiant soldier of country, a biopic titled, ‘Chaudhary – The Martyr’ was announced few years back. And, ever since, the audience had been eagerly waiting.
However, the first look into the movie has disappointed a huge population, as it prominently missed the mark when portraying a legend like Chaudhary Aslam. The extraordinary stylishness and immaterial item numbers stole the whole minute long teaser, making the movie lose its charm.
The trailer also exhibits Chaudhary Aslam’s character in his signature white Shalwar Qameez, without revealing much about the storyline, except it is all about war and criminals. Let’s have a look at the trailer.

Brought to life by renowned director Azeem Sajjad, Chaudhary – The Martyr is an effort to highlight the life history of gallant SSP Chaudhary Aslam.
