Performance
Asha Poslay and Nasir Khan in film Teri Yaad (1948)

Asha Poslay was main heroine with Nasir Khan (the younger brother of Dilip Kumar), both main artists were not impressive. Najma, Rani Kiran and Jahangir Khan played supporting roles.

Nazar was a great discovery who became the first super star comedian in Pakistani movies. Film director Daud Chand had an expirence of ten years since his film Sassi Punnu (1938) was famous before partition, but his performance was average. Film lyricists did well and music was best part of this film, but not any single song was recorded on gramophone. Asha Poslay and Rani Kiran's father Inayat Ali Nath was music director. Cinematographer Raza Mir had very tough time with poor technology and cameras.

 

Film business

Film Teri Yaad ran for five weeks on its main cinema in Lahore. It was not bad in 1949 when Indian films freely were screened on Pakistani cinemas. Therefor this film was not "dead-flop" as it has been told in Pakistani media, it was an average business, also in Karachi where it ran for five weeks on its main cinema.
