Now that we have known about the main character of the drama, let’s talk about what the story encompasses. The story revolves around Parizaad played by Ahmed Ali Akbar, and how his interactions with different characters act as life-altering experiences for him.
In the initial episodes we see Parizaad as very somber and timid individual who is treated poorly in his home, with no solace but his sister. That being said he is a hard worker and takes his education very seriously.
In the drama his first interaction is with Ushna Shah who he gives Urdu tuitions to. The tutoring sessions ends abruptly and poorly as Parizaad is accused of trespassing her roof and leaving an inappropriate letter. While the writing was his, it wasn’t him that was trespassing and the words weren’t his either, he had written the letter for a boy in his neighborhood.
As the promos and OST indicate, this is just the beginning of problems Parizaad is going to face. With each character be it Nauman Ejaz, Saboor Aly, Yumna Zaidi, Urwa Hocane or Ushna Shah, Ahmed Ali Akbar i.e. Parizaad is faced with a new challenge each of them impacting his life differently.
This drama is all about the immense cast, their phenomenal acting, the storyline and the suspense behind all the characters!! But what we could conclude from the above discussion was all about how beautifully Parizaad’s one character has been shown portraying many roles. Sometimes he is playing a poet, sometimes a lover, sometimes a spy and sometimes a friend. We are all thrilled by the promotional videos and how the story will progress, if you’re just as curious watch Parizaad every Tuesday at 8 PM.
