After an unbeaten run of Ramz-e-Ishq, 7th Sky Entertainment came up with another intense serial, Muqaddar, for Monday’s 8 PM prime time slot.
Starring the veteran actor Faysal Qureshi in a pivotal role, along with young talented Madiha Imam, and the handsome Ali Ansari in prominent roles, Muqaddar is a play that revolves around feudalism and its atrocities.
Written by Iqbal Bano, and directed by Shehrazade Shaikh, the story is mainly about how Raima, an RJ, becomes a victim of a feudal lord Saif ur Rehman, played by Faysal Qureshi.
The story so far has been quite captivating and fast-paced. Just a couple of episodes down and a lot has happened in the drama. Raima, a lovely happy girl, is an orphan who lives with her uncle’s family. She is an RJ and is shown to be very much in love with her cousin Haris, played by Ali Ansari.
The two cousins share a sweet relationship with each other and are engaged with the plan to be married soon. On the other hand, Raima also has a secret admirer Saad in her university, but when he finds out about her engagement, he is heart-broken.
Then enters Sardar Saif ur Rehman, who is a landlord, who dabbles in philanthropy to maintain a facade of being civilized. However, at heart, he’s as much a villain as he claims not to be. When Saif ur Rehman first sees Raima during an interview, she is talking for her radio show, a womanizer like him cannot control falling for her.
The young, educated, and smart girl is a complete opposite of his wife, and hence, without wasting any time, he starts planning how to make her a part of his life.
He calls Raima’s uncle to his office and asks for Raima’s hand in marriage, but he refuses. But of course, a feudal lord and industrialist like Sardar Saif ur Rehman is not born to take no for an answer and gives him a 3-day ultimatum. He has now gotten Raima kidnapped and left us wondering what he plans to do next.
We have seen the story moving at an incredible pace for now, and it is all set to get intense from now onwards.
All the actors are entirely justifying the role they are given, and so far, the performances have been brilliant. Faysal Qureshi, Madiha Imam, and Ali Ansari are all perfect for their respective characters.
Drama serial Muqaddar has just started, which means there is still a lot in store for us in the coming weeks. The teasers suggest a lot of drama, struggles for Raima, some twists and turns in the story, and we are anxiously waiting for the story to unfold week after week.
