Described as an adventure fantasy, the film is inspired by the epic tale of Tilism e Hoshruba. The story recounts the thrilling adventures of the legendary trickster hero Umro Ayyar as he travels through time and magical realms.

However, beneath the fantastical surface lies a deeper theme that resonates with audiences of all ages: the quest for true connection and overcoming selfishness. Umro Ayyar’s journey becomes a testament to the power of forging bonds that transcend racial, gender, class, age, and personality differences.

Besides the animated film, Ingenuity Productions is also working on another 3D animated series titled ‘Science Voyagers.’ This series depicts a curious boy embarking on time-traveling adventures to meet history’s scientific greats.

Additionally, the company is credited for producing two 2D animated series: ‘Aria and the Magic Jungle,’ focusing on environmental awareness, and ‘Yolki and Hatch,’ centered around childhood development. “We want to put the potential of the Pakistani animation industry on display on the world stage. We’re confident that the film’s stunning visuals and story will captivate audiences worldwide,” said Haris Basharat, Ingenuity Production’s CEO.
