Pakistan's first feature fim Teri Yaad (1948) is the story of a wealthy man who leaves his money to his new born daughter and his best friends new born son. But his daughter is killed by the greedy friend. The widow raises an orphaned girl who falls in love with the friends son, which is not acceptable for the widow. She gets her revenge when friend committed suicide and then the lovers are united.
Nazar became the first super star comedian in Pakistani movies. Film director Dawood 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. 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 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.
