Nikal pada main par failaye,
Thank gaya hoon dil bajaaye….
Atish lagi, aur tishnagi,
Seena ye mera kyon jalaaye…
What a magnificent story, marvelous canvas and such a golden hued painting like script.
Alif, recently concluded drama series on Geo Tv, that spanned across two countries, Turkey and Pakistan.
Based upon the novel by the same name, Alif, written by Umaira Ahmed, tells the saga of three generations.
The first generation is played by Manzar Sahbai, as Abdul Alaa, aka Dada Jaan, second is Taha Abdul Alaa played by Ahsan Khan and the third is Qalb e Momin, played by Hamza Ali Abbasi.
The other side is Husn e Jahan, played by Kubra Khan, Suraiyya, played by Lubna Aslam, her husband Sultan, played by Saleem Mairaj and Sajal Aly as Momina Sultan.
It’s not a story, it’s a lyrical, almost mythical very very sad journey of people, who are trying to find themselves and the purpose of their lives.
Qalb e Momin is looking for some closures in life, the complicated love story of his parents, his mother a famous actress and his father a sufi dancer.
Who are rejected by his grand father and his unbending ego, changing lives forever.
Abdul Alaa is a calligrapher who’s art is revered around the world, who has not learned to compromise on his values, Taha, caught between love and duty, plus a guilty conscience, a child, trying to fathom where his father is.
On the other hand we have the Sultan family. Momina who is a struggling actress, trying to earn so that her brother Jahangir who is suffering from Leukemia could be treated, her dejected parents, Sultan, who almost worships Husn e Jahan, and a mother who dotes on her son.
Qalb e Momin in present day is a high and mighty director, with very successful commercial movies, challanged by his grandfather to create something close to God.
How he finds his peace and closure, how he finally forgives himself, is a joy to watch.
Momin played by Hamza had such an impact on him that he had announced his retirement from entertainment industry.
The story has layers of every emotion..
Momina who loses her brother to Leukemia, looks devastatingly vulnerable.
The sense of loss, the emotional lethargy, the depression are so beautifully projected.
The love between Momin and Momina is left unrequited, but open ended.
The majestic love story of Taha and Husn e Jahan is such a tragedy.
Husn e Jahan played by Kubra Khan is magnificent.
Ahsan Khan as Taha is simply out of this world.
The helpless and emotionally aloof Momin, who longs to have his lost life back is heart breaking.
The film that he finally completed is called Alif and the story ends on a happy note with the film becoming a superhit.
He gets the story out of his system finally and absolves himself of the demons of his past.
Momin and Momina confess their love for each other, still part ways to get back together later on. Every frame of this drama is a joy to watch.
It’s sheer poetry.
Momina who is an Oscar winner leads her life teaching calligraphy and so does Momin, but in Turkey as per the wishes of Abdul Alaa.
The drama is directed by Haseeb Hasan.
