Phaans replaces Mushk on Saturdays. Episode 1 dropped and audiences watched with great anticipation as Zara Noor Abbas & Shahzad Shaikh gave us entirely new avatars!
And woah! We weren’t expecting such a happening episode! From Hashim’s Jamni Kurta to Samad’s roving eye…the episode seems to have hit the right notes on all counts.
Meet the characters
Shahzad Shaikh as Saahil won our hearts with a performance that spoke volumes! His demeanour was neither too over-stated nor under-stated. Shahzad seems to have found the key to our hearts in a role that is intensely challenging yet, if done to perfection, intensely rewarding!
Sami Khan, with his signature screen presence of course, is throwing shades of Mikaal from Dulhan. Who else matched the 2 characters, or was it just us? We’re sure they will grow into completely diverse roles but first impressions are hard to beat!
It is refreshing to see Yashma Gill in a new role. She has managed to shrug off Shanze from Pyar Ke Sadqay & we’re loving her as Hafsa! Yashma sported a graceful wardrobe. Muted expressions and a believable performance made us want to watch more in the coming episodes!
Why we’re rooting for Phaans
It is heartening to anticipate another Pakistani drama highlight pertinent social issues which are deemed as taboo in our society.
