If you are a millenial reading this, don’t stop, because you need to know her. And if you have lived through her dramas, then know this – you will celebrate her for as long as you live!
What can I say about the pen who made me smile tearfully, giggle uncontrollably, replay multiple drama dialogues & scenes at multiple stages of my life, the woman who is the reason I STILL watch a Pakistani drama, and the one because of whom I stopped (because they don’t make ’em like her anymore). The lady whose humour, wit, comic dialogue has yet to be superseded by the likes of any writer I know.
Haseena Wrote Comedy Like No Other!
The 80’s were defined by an era of iconic dramas ruled by her laugh-out-loud characters. She gave us onscreen heroines who were courageous, outspoken & yet endearingly innocent. Her sharp-witted dialogues, sensitive characterizations & family-oriented dramas remain unmatched in the long, illustrious history of PTV plays so far.
Haseena has gifted us remarkably unique characters, real in their strength, battles and eventual triumphs. Her stories were forever uplifting, just like her perspective towards life. If you are missing her, all you need to do is return to her stellar works & get a good dose of genius script writing – comedy with a heart! Her best TV dramas include Dhoop Kinare, Ankahi, Tanhaiyan, Aahat, Ansoo & many more.
Keep Her Memory Alive
So go ahead & watch her dramas this weekend & celebrate the pen that dreamed up emancipated women in an era when Feminism was not even a thing!
