Deewar-e-Shab Appears as a Periodic Masterpiece Like No Other

Film & Drama   June 24, 2019
It's throbbing with pain of separation and remorse.


HUM TV’s love affair with periodic dramas knows no bounds.

From Daastan to Aangan, fans have welcomed the moving stories with open arms and have buried their tragic tales deep in their hearts.

It is no secret that Aangan is successfully dominating the airwaves and has left the audience hooked to the screens.

So much more is yet to unveil in the classic magnum opus. And Momina Duraid has already teased us with yet another periodic piece ‘Deewar-e-Shab’ and it seems that things are about to get more intense for drama buffs.

Set in the 1980’s, the drama is an adaption of Aliya Bukhari’s novel of the same name and is directed by Iqbal Hussain.

The crème de la crème of drama industry has been roped in for Deewar-e-Shab with  Bushra Ansari, Asma Abbas, Zara Noor Abbas, Sarah Khan, Shahroz Sabzwari, Shahzad Sheikh, Mohsin Abbas Haider and many more all set to enthrall the audience.

The emotion-laden drama is not your ordinary periodic love saga. The story seems an intense roller-coaster ride with pain, struggle and heartbreak written all over it.

This is what Deewar-e-Shab has in store for us:

Women Leading the Way

So far one thing is pretty evident that Deewar-e-Shab is a heroin powered drama.

What’s more, it is apparent who the true stars of the saga are. The trio of ‘Bushra Ansari, Asma Abbas and Zara Noor Abbas’ have stolen the limelight, each standing out in their diverse roles.

From the looks, Deewar-e-Shab is a depiction of head-strong courtesans who earn with their talent and not their bodies.

While Zara and Bushra appear to have a doting mother-daughter relationship, Asma has donned the role of the vile aunt who is set to destroy the order of the house.

We also realize how women in the drama are succumb to pressure for marriage against their will. However, our firecracker heroin Zara definitely looks like a rebel and will defy all odds to discover a destiny of her own. But will she succeed? Only time will tell.

Dysfunctional Family and Love Affairs

A little fast-forward to the next generation and we witness Sarah Khan, Shahzad Sheikh and Shahroz Sabzwari vying hard to break the shackles of the past.

Young couple in love, Sarah and Shahzad are separated by the hands of a forced marriage and the angry young man, Shahroz is seen mutinous over the blood of courtesans flowing in his veins.

We have a strong hunch that Shahroz is Zara’s son who returns to his family after his mother parted ways.

Meanwhile, Bushra Ansari can be spotted as a bitter, heartbroken mom throughout with her younger daughter Nausheen Shah too compelled to nuptial against her will.

Mohsin Abbas Haider who plays Nausheen’s love interest in the drama is likely to bid us farewell soon in the story as shown with the glimpse of his death in the teaser.

A Revolutionary End will hit the Drama

We are already aware that Deewar-e-Shab is not your mainstream romance story. It’s throbbing with pain of separation and remorse, are portraying that viewers should brace themselves for a hard-hitting end.

We bet the new generation shown in the drama will challenge the rules of the bygone and will dare to fight for their right to love.

Like all HUM TV dramas, the sets look magnificent and even more stunning is the periodic regalia donned by the heroines in the tale.

All of this combined, we have high hopes from this one. But will it create a splash like Dastaan did and Aangan is on its way to make? Let’s wait and watch.
