If you hate Television soaps because of their needless elongated and exaggerated story plots or reoccurring presence of supernatural creatures like ‚ÄòNaagins’ or if you have concluded that television soaps offer no good stuff except ‚ÄòSaas-Bahu‚Äô fights then ‚ÄúZindagi Gulzar Hai‚Äù is the perfect escape from all the drama most of the Indian TV soaps offer!
‚ÄúZindagi Gulzar Hai‚Äù is based on the novel of the same name by¬†Umera Ahmad. It¬†was first telecasted from 30 November 2012 to May 2013 in Pakistan. ‚ÄúZindagi Gulzar Hai‚Äù ¬†first aired in India on 23 June 2014 and has already been aired on Zindagi Channel in India 6 times. It has Fawad Khan as the lead male actor and Sanam Saeed as the lead female actress. Read on to know more about the show.
1. Strong Male & Female Characters
The charming and confident male lead character of Zaroon Junaid (played by Fawad Khan) struggles to find peace in his mind on the ongoing struggle between liberalism and conventional ideals. Kashaf Murtuza (played by Sanam Saeed) struggles to gain education, transgressing the boundaries of gender stereotype in the society. Her strong-headed woman character would definitely lure the feminist inside everyone.
2. Insight in the Human Psyche
This show offers not only the issues of social stigmas but also the deep analysis of human psyche during our trans formative years of college and higher studies. It offers logical and critically analyzed answers of all our unanswered questions about life.
3. Absolute fondness and love!
And not to forget! The story also holds the love story of Zaroon and Kashaf. Despite belonging to diverge backgrounds and having different personalities, the theory of ‚Äòopposite poles attract‚Äô is well portrayed in the story.
4. Daily diary writing by Zaroon & Kashaf
The most intriguing part of the narrative is when both the protagonists write diaries every day and how their thoughts are poles apart and often negative about each other. The approaches of both the characters are different towards life. It is interesting to view how at the end of the show they fall for each other and find their ideal life-partners.
After watching this show you will definitely identify yourself either as Zaroon, for living life to the fullest or as Kashaf, who questions the age-old ideals of class, caste and gender or in the other minor characters of the story, who go through the never-ending complications of life and still smile through all the evens and odds.
This show is a decision you won‚Äôt ever regret!
