Zindagi Gulzar Hai: 13

The drama inches ahead in this episode, leaving us a little frustrated with the pace but also giving us more time to ponder upon the message that must infiltrate our minds more than the obsession with the Kashaf-Zaroon love story. One of the cast members, someone I bumped into several weeks ago, confirmed that they would get married (we already know that, right?) and added that there would be no predictable romance. Kashaf and Zaroon will not stop quarreling. Perfect. Now all we have to do is wait. Meanwhile… “We were not inflicted with miseries by society but by our own father.” Kashaf, who has been posted somewhere in Interior Sindh, sums up her inability to forgive her father. She says she...

An informal chat with Sanam aka Kashaf these days

Met Sanam at Cafe 44 today and she was as down to earth and focused as she was when she started out. From Roxie Hart to Kashaf Murtaza she has shifted gears effortlessly. The industry needs more like her. Why do you think Zindagi Gulzar Hai works? It works because it has Fawad. It works because his fans have their heart throb in it. Plus, my character is a very difficult person and it intrigues them to see him struggling. What do you like about your character? I like that she’s afraid of nothing. She is very conscious of herself, as any girl in her situation would be, but she’s a bold soul to attack her circumstances and her father the way...

Zindagi Gulzar Hai 9

Last week passed with one question on the mind. Would Zaroon slap Kashaf? I haven’t read the book but those who have (and have been talking about it incessantly) shared that Zaroon does slap Kashaf in Umera Ahmad’s original story. When Kashaf overhears him criticizing and mocking her “middle class mentality” in the college library she confronts him and tears up his notes in fury. She hurls accusations right back at him, calling him a myopic low life who cannot respect others because he has no respect of his own. This is when he slaps her. Or at least in the book he does. We aren’t living in the Medieval times and physically assaulting a lady isn’t something any hero, no matter...

Zindagi Gulzar Hai: Episode 8

It takes an intelligent balance of story-telling, dialogue and characterization to ensure an effective play and that’s precisely what Zindagi Gulzar Hai is achieving more and more of as it gains momentum. There are enough sob-stories going around; stories that play up oppression and depression but here we have one that is pleasant despite being just as real as the tragedies we are fed on a regular basis. This is a love story between two hot-headed, intensely proud and intelligent people and the way Sultana Siddiqui is spinning it (with fabulous casting), every episode is turning more and more addictive. Will Zaroon slap Kashaf in the next episode? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Till then, the plot of their...

Zindagi Gulzar Hai: episode 2

Can Fawad and Sanam replace the Fawad and Mahira magic? The pace of the story picks up with a ‘cute meet’ between Zaroon and Kashaf. He actually nudges her aside when they’re all swarmed around the notice board to see the list of selected students and he makes fun of her name when she’s standing right behind him. Knowing that he will get besotted and that they will fall in love (wishful thinking?) it’ll be interesting to see how this romance unravels. Not that it’ll be simple for Kashaf to fall in love and follow her heart. It’s bad enough – as we are shown in this episode – that she’s been admitted to a co-ed MBA program....

Zindagi Gulzar Hai: Episode 1

Positioned as the next Humsafar, Hum TV’s latest drama serial - Zindagi Gulzar Hai - premiered to a fairly strong start tonight. ‘Will it be the next Humsafar?’ was the question on everyone’s mind and it was inevitable to not draw comparisons between the stories and the characters of both serials. Though some basic elements may have appeared similar on the surface, there were enough hints that they would surely diverge as the story evolved. Irrespectively, ZGH has the makings of a riveting show. Can Zindagi Gulzar Hai be the next Humsafar? As an adaptation of Umera Ahmed’s popular novel of the same title, Zindagi Gulzar Hai (just like Humsafar) has a fairy tale factor to it. Kashaf...

Rock star Romantic

  Love him or hate him, Asher Hussain has made it impossible to ignore Fawad Afzal Khan. (Published in Dawn Images on Sunday, January 1 2012) Portrait exclusively for Dawn by Faisal Farooqui @ Dragonfly It’s impossible to sit across Fawad Khan and not think of Asher Hussain. Or is it the other way around? Humsafar – the hit TV drama playing on Hum TV these days – has all of Pakistan hooked on to Khirad and Asher’s tragic love story and as we sit face to face in Lahore’s Mrs Field’s Cafe it’s difficult to separate the man from the character he plays. The same gait and guarded gaze. The same intensity and ego. Fawad Khan has eyes that can...
