As voting for The Lux Style Awards’21 is in full swing, Deewangi fans will be voting for the drama which has been nominated for three categories this year – Zeeshan Ahmed for Best TV Director, Hiba Bukhari for Best Female Actor Viewer’s Choice and Danish Taimoor for Best Male Actor Viewer’s Choice.
A Riveting Storyline & Convincing Performances By The Leads
‘Deewangi’ was produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi, written by Saima Akhtar and Directed by Zeeshan Ahmed. It aired on GEO Entertainment under the 7th Sky Entertainment banner and the drama’s talented cast includes Danish Taimoor (Sultan Durrani) and Hiba Bukhari (Nageen) as the main leads.
The storyline of the drama revolves around multiple themes, including the theme of class divide (middle-class vs. elite) and ‘Deewangi’ broaches these topics in an accessible way for the mass audience in an effort to initiate a conversation amongst the viewers. The key takeaway from ‘Deewangi’ is the importance of female empowerment and consent, and the tribulations of being a woman in Pakistan.
Apart from the engaging storyline, the drama is beautifully shot by Zeeshan Ahmed and his team in three different locations – Karachi, Lahore and Hyderabad, and is an applaudable attempt at utilizing outdoor spaces effectively for story-telling. Lastly, let’s not forget the emotive acting by Hiba Bukhari and Danish Taimoor. Both actors did well in establishing their characters and did justice to their respective story arcs. Their acting was highly praised by fans, no wonder they both made it to the Viewer’s Choice list! Here’s what the fans had to say on Twitter:
