Aijaz Aslam is all set to shed off his cruel and strange avatar of Yawar — which he is playing in Cheekh — as his next play will perhaps tickle your fancy. From next week onwards, Aijaz will play a funny character, Mustaqeem, opposite Nadia Khan in a humourous play Dolly Darling.
As Ramazan calls for some lighthearted comedy, Dolly Darling appears to be a fun take on a couple’s life where the husband (Aijaz) is indifferent towards his wife (Nadia) and she is trying hard to win him over and get his affection. The teaser shows that Aijaz’s character is usually not even responding to her and she indirectly takes his comments to heart.
Written by Hum Sub Umeed Say Hain famed Dr. Younis Butt and directed by Iftikhar Iffi, the first two teasers left us with mixed feelings. The play packs some comic punches right but the rest seems awry and slapstick.
Dolly Darling is scheduled to air from 1st Ramazan on Geo Entertainment. Watch the teaser and tell us what do you think?
