Pheray was a Pakistani Punjabi film released on July 28, 1949. The film was directed by Nazir Ahmed Khan.[1] The story of the film was a copy of Nazir's own film Gaon Ki Gori, that was released in 1945 in India before partition. The music of Pheray was given by Ghulam Ahmed Chishti and lyrics were written by G. A. Chishti and Baba Alam Siaposh. The singers were Munawar Sultana and Inayat Hussain Bhatti.
