This drama is a textbook example of the power of a good director.
What could easily have ended up as a well-written potboiler became an essay on marriage and the changing demands of modern relationships.
Using a clever balance of past, present and near past, director Haissam Hussain kept the momentum going in what might have been just another mazloom aurat (helpless woman) story.
This technique required a lot of skilled editing and if anyone wants to compare notes on how it’s done, just watch the American serial The Story Of Us, which mirrors this difficult style.
Memorable performances from Sanam Baloch, Mikaal Zulfikaar, Nadia Jamil and Samina Peerzada made this serial seem like a secret door into the past of every woman.
