Ptv Classic Drama Tanhaiyan Part 1

This is the story of two sisters, Zara (Shehnaz Sheikh) & Sunya (Marina Khan). When fate deals them a tragic blow, taking their parents away, they migrate to Karachi from Lahore to go & live with their aunt, acted out by Badar Khalil. This trio, supported by a colorful cast, boasting names like Qazi Wajid, Behroze Sabzwari, Asif Raza Mir, Jamshed Ansari, ensure memorable viewing for everyone. Although there is perfect balance between comedy and serious viewing, one feels that what really has made this drama immortal is the chemistry (or lack of it- portrayed in the drama) between Marina Khan & Behroze Sabzwari. One comical scene follows another as Behroze Sabzwari, an immaculately dressed (full suit with oiled hair- the complete works) personal manager of Qazi Wajid, tries to win the heart of Marina Khan. Marina plays pranks on him, gives him the nickname of "Qabacha" and the fun never stops. There is also a serious side to this drama. With her parents now no longer with her, Zara (Shehnaz Shaikh) feels responsible for supporting herself & her sister. The problem is she takes this responsibility too seriously, causing problems both for her & others who care about her. Whatever problems she faces in the drama, there are no problems as far as her acting skills are concerned. Shehnaz Shiekh's acting skills are tested to the limit and she comes through with flying colors. Although, this is a very somber series (13 episodes) it does have plenty of light moments. Eventually, it is an essay on relationships which seems as relevant today as it was in 1985.
