Eid-al-Fitr is one of the most beloved celebrations in Pakistan. It is three days of feasting, mingling and get together gatherings. If you have recently tied the knot, you should make time to slip away with your new hubby or wifey. What could be more fun than getting a bucket of caramel popcorn (newlyweds can share one and cuddle at the same time – of course being in their limits!), a little nachos and hitting the cinemas?
Let’s not forget our cousins and friends when making plans to hang out on Eid. Make a party of it. Go to movies with other married or engaged couples or friends. To help you out, we at Bridals.pk have bought you a list of all the movies that will be showing this Eid-al-Fitr and for the rest of the month. Now, you can have plenty of time to sort priorities and plan a great evening. Sit back and enjoy these motion pictures trailers of various genres to satisfy your inner movie buff.
