Teri Yaad is the first-ever feature film released in Pakistanmarker after the partition of India on 7 August 1948, on Eid day. It was the first film released after the birth of Pakistan, but certainly not the first to be produced indigenously in the newly-found land.


The year 1947 saw the partition of India and the birth of the nation of Pakistan. During this time, the Indian film industry was segregated and the only film production centre left in Pakistan was the one at Lahoremarker. While the industry was still reeling in its infancy, it was hard to work on film productions that had initiated before the partition as much of the filmmakers and actors working on projects had left for the newly-found country of India.

With much hardships faced, the new film industry was able to release its first feature film, Teri Yaad on 7 August 1948, premièring at the Parbhat Theatre in Lahore. It starred Asha Posley and Nasir Khan, brother of renowned Indian actor Dilip Kumar who had travelled off to India. With the film came playback soundtrack written and composed by Inayat Ali Nath. Produced by Dewan Sardari Lal's Dewan Pictures and directed by Daud Chand, the film stayed for a significant time on the celluloid screens in Lahore, Quettamarker and Dhakamarker.
