Tea is the common element that is keeping both the characters together as we see in real life that there are many relationships that are not blood-related to each other but have a special bonding over tea. This film shows a strong bond that tea can create between two individuals.


The team of students that have brought this idea to life is from different universities that teach film-making like Iqra, SZABIST, KU, Greenwich and PAFKiet.

The music of the film is composed by Masood Alam and sound design is brilliantly done by Kashif Ejaz. The film has also gone through a color grading process done by Hussain Qaizar who has his background with SOC films. The idea of Family Films is always to pick the best for every project and hence we feel lucky to have a great team on Bas Ek Piyali Chai. The film will start its festival run internationally from December 2017.

People at Family Films always believed that good content stands out and so we wish to bring success and pride for our country as filmmakers from around the world this time again after Arz-e- Pakistan and different short films that we have submitted earlier.
