A love story, the play is based on three families: Firstly we have Mr and Mrs Hayat (Shehryar Zaidi & Badar Khalil) who have two sons, Sharjeel (Adnan Siddiqui) and Sameer (Ali Kazmi). Mrs Hayat also has an unmarried sister Rafiya (Naila Ali). Mrs. Hayat is a very dominating and tyrant woman and no one in their house can do or say anything against her. Then we have a widow living in Islamabad who has two daughters Amna (Vaneeza Ahmed) and Imaney (Nadia Hussain). Amna is engaged to be married to Sharjeel and the whole family comes to Karachi for the wedding. At the mayun, they discover that Amna’s mother-in-law is not as sweet and mild tempered as they were told. However they are helpless and Amna gets married to Sharjeel. Amna is a docile girl and quietly bears all her mother in law’s taunts and puts up a happy face for her family. There is something very special about this Novel and the Drama, it makes for a decent watch mainly because of Rubina’s worthy direction and some wonderful acting by the leads involved.
