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.

“Sheeshay Ka Mahal” is about the false pride that often brings those living in glass houses tumbling down. Written by Noor-ul-Huda Shah, this soap revolves around the matriarch of a family, Samina Peerzada, who has a dark secret. She battles with her daughter-in-law (Maria Wasti) who is from a family of dubious social standing. The soap also shows the hypocrisy of those who profess high ideals and yet are unable to practise them. This is counter poised with the life of a call girl who is unafraid to call a spade a spade.
“Sheeshay Ka Mahal” is bound to be a magnet for viewers who expect nothing but the extraordinary from the pen of Nur-ul-Huda Shah. As always, she has not been afraid to put up a mirror to society and reveal its ugliness and false pride. So stay tuned — this is a castle you can see through and witness what goes on behind closed doors.

Aahat (An Approaching Sound) is the story of a young couple, their dreams, social pressures and the consequences of having too many children too soon. The television drama of six one-hour episodes is an outstanding example of the success of the Enter-Educate concept in diffusing family planning messages. It marked the first highly visible collaboration between Pakistan TV and the National Population Program, signaling a positive change in high-level government commitment to family planning communication in Pakistan. As in many Muslim societies, family planning has long been considered too sensitive a topic for mass media. However, the overwhelmingly positive response that the drama received has quieted such misconceptions and given high visibility to family planning. Originally scripted in Urdu, followed by an English subtitled version, the drama was broadcast on Pakistan Television (PTV) beginning October 1, 1991.
