Pakistani Urdu-language film which stars Meera, Reemaand Moammar Rana.

One day he has a bet with his fianceé and he kisses the hand of Meera who also studies there. Meera feels insulted and she goes to her brother Saud who is the "badmash" of the film.
Saud takes his men and goes to Momi's house and kills his brother and sets his house on fire. And then he kills Noman's sister as well. Since Meera thinks that she was responsible for making Momi's brother kiss her hand, Momi and Noman tries to file case against
Saudbut Saudhires a police officer who that police officer files a fake case of terrorism against Momi and his mother. In the jail Momi meets lady police officer, Reema, who gets harsh with his mother and slaps his mother on her face.

They reach a hilly area that is owned by a tribe. The son takes all four to the master of the tribe and there Momi and Noman tell their stories. Reemaand Meerabelieve them and fall in love with them.
The most hyped film of the year after "
Yeh Dil Aap Ka Huwa", with an excellent star cast, the current Momi fever, average music and brilliant marketing, it may bring good news at the box-office initially, whether Fire has the fire or not. Fire was in news from the very start, Asif Ali Potautilized the star power of Meeraand Reemaand by making it an issue he tried to resolve the conflicts that both had developed over the years. So, Fire was very much news for that but then by casting Noman Masoodin the leading pair, he once again tried to be somewhat different in his approach, but who knew that Fire was going to be such a disaster. Tall claims were made about the story and the music but sadly enough none comes even to average level.
The music in a way has become more important than the story and performance of actors. When
Asif Ali Potawas contacted to comment on the situation, he said ‘Music is part of film. It is not something extra. Good music is possible only when you have songs in line with the story. Luckily enough, I worked over the story first and then chalked out situations where I needed the help of music.
The choreography consists mainly of Latka and Jhatkas. The film's musical numbers include the song
Nirma. Asif Ali Potastressed the importance of music in the film saying, "Music is part of film. It is not something extra. Good music is possible only when you have songs in line with the story. Luckily enough, I worked over the story first and then chalked out situations where I needed the help of music."
