Inteha (Urdu: انتہا) is a Pakistani Urdu film which was released in 1999 across theaters in Pakistan. The movie was Samina Peerzada's debut directorial attempt, and established the careers of its two leading men Humayun Saeed and Zeeshan Sikander. Both the actors incidentally also made their debut with Inteha.


Inteha basically is the story of Sara, played by the leading actress Meera - a young girl from a well off background, studying at a liberal arts college. Being quite the introverted sort and romantically inclined, she's a dreamer. With a dad who still dotes on her daughter, and a pacifist boyfriend (Zeeshan Sikanadar), life just couldn't get any better of her. This all is shattered when circumstances force her to marry her feudal cousin (Humayun Saeed as Zafar). She finds her new home troublesome.

Film Business

The film's plotline dealt with the issue of marital rape and a few shots detailing the ordeal the lead character goes through stirred much controversy when Inteha was released during the first half of 1999. As a result the movie was banned for a few days, but was subsequently re-released after Peerzada managed to get a stay order from the court. It was a sensational success at the major urban centers in Pakistan and had a record run at Karachi's Nishat theater. The cast of the show was quite huge and contained experienced actors and the crew.
