In a bid to get things back to normal in the Pakistani showbiz industry, private television channel Hum took a brave and bold decision to hold the 5th Hum Style Awards in Lahore.

As compared to earlier events, this event was relatively held on a small scale. Yet the glam and oomph factor was omnipresent. Featuring celebrities from the film, drama, music, and fashion fraternity, the night celebrated and acknowledged many stylish and trendsetting stars of entertainment, sports, and fashion industries in numerous categories, while also introducing a new category: Fashion Stylist of the Year.

This is in fact the first big event in the country after lockdowns were imposed globally due to Covid-19. The previous HSA was held in January 2020.

The Awards were hosted by Pakistani heartthrob Ali Zafar along with Urwa Hocane.

Ali Zafar, who recently received the Presidential Honor, Pride of Performance President of Pakistan was the main draw of the event. At times it was obvious that he was not strictly following the script and preferred doing it spontaneously thanks to his natural wit and talent.

The best part of the show were performances by Ali Zafar and Alizeh Shah on songs like Mela Loot Liya which he composed last year just before the 5th season of Pakistan Super League and Item Number the famous song of Zafar’s first Pakistani film Teefa in Trouble.

Dam Mastam Poster Launch

The most interesting part of the show was the poster launch of the upcoming Pakistani film Dam Mastam, through an engaging script performed by lead actors Amar Khan and Imran Ashraf along with director Muhammad Ehteshamuddin and producer Adnan Siddiqui.

The three-hour event continued with full glitz and glam though there were a few technical glitches in between.

Some other dance performances were by film star Resham, fashion designer Hasan Sheheryar Yasin and songstress Aima Baig. Resham was flawless but HSY struggled to keep up. Aima presented three songs and also tried to dance to her famous number from the film Na Maloom Afraad 2, Kaif-o-Suroor - all of which were beautifully sung but she failed to do them justice when it came to the choreography.
