Cake” a story about love, loss and passage of time. The story is something we all can relate to in some way. We have seen globalisation, children moving away and the rivalry between siblings. It’s a story about love, loss and life and death – all the things that we are familiar with. It’s about two sisters, one of whom lives abroad and the other is left behind here. It showcases their conflicts in dealing with their relationships and parents.
The film shows the true sibling bond between Aamina Sheikh [Zareen] and Sanam Saeed [Zara], who seem to be fighting one minute and getting along the next.
The press release stated Aamina Sheikh as saying at the launch “Can’t wait to serve the whole Cake to our audience on the 30th of March, I’m certain it’ll ring true to home and bring authenticity to our Pakistani audience. ‘Cake’ is definitely a stepping stone towards forming an identity of Pakistani cinema.”
We are a family of five in Cake. I play the youngest of three siblings who come back from the UK to visit her ageing parents. She hasn’t lived with her family for ten years and they are now forced to adjust and live together,” said Sanam Saeed
Actor Adnan Malik, who plays Romeo, is the quintessential outsider who is close to this family.
“He’s that compassionate, quiet observer and is that moral compass of the family,” said Adnan Malik
