Kambakht is about a middle-aged man from the backward areas of the Pakhtunkhwa, played by Hamza Ali Abbasi, and a young urban city-slicker, played by Shehreyar Munawar, who strike an unlikely and accidental friendship.[6]



The film was produced under the banner Kahani Films. Film shooting began in May 2013 and was completed in June 2014. Post production began in same month but it was delayed as director was busy attending Imran Khan's protest. In an interview with dawn he said, "I admit, the shooting did get delayed because I was busy in dharnas. However, it is in post production now and we will hopefully be done with it by March and then hand it over to ARY to release it whenever they deem fit. I truly believe in this project. Entertainment without a message or moral is useless. Kambakht will make people laugh but also make people think."[7]


First look teaser released on 7 February 2014 at 8:00 PM on ARY Digital Network.[8][9][10]
