Directed by Asim Abbasi, known for his work on Churails and Cake, Barzakh offers a unique narrative set in a family reunion. The trailer opens with a haunting scene where a 76-year-old man shocks his estranged family by announcing his marriage to the ghost of his first love.

Viewers are introduced to a world where the ordinary meets the extraordinary, and everyone is interconnected in this mystical narrative.

The term Barzakh, meaning barrier or hindrance in Arabic, is central to the story, reflecting the elderly man's desire to reunite with his lost love. The trailer features cult-like imagery with people in pink performing rituals, hinting at the occult. Sanam Saeed’s character encounters a figure enshrouded in red against the backdrop of snow-covered mountains, adding to the eerie atmosphere.
