The struggle to sustain the morale of the troops, to make sense of all that is happening and to hope against hope that maybe, they will survive. Jo Bichar Gaye aptly portrays the ugly truths faced by a soldier and the harsh realities of war.
The Plot And The Characters
The drama aptly depicts the sufferings, an ugly face of humanity as friends turn into enemies when politics plays its part when there is no harmony between various elements of power, the senseless loss of human lives has no value when some agendas are decided upon and followed single-mindedly when nations fail to provide equal opportunities and rights to all their citizens.
We could not help but think how much resilience it must have taken Captain Farrukh to accept Sonia’s father’s wishes and our heart broke with him.
The last few lines from Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poem ‘The Charge Of The Light Brigade’ recited by DG sum up war – to honor a soldier’s courage as opposed to his victory, and the unfortunate truth that we will, perhaps, never get rid of wars.
The final teardrop from Captain Farrukh etched this story in our hearts forever. Talha Chahour delivers a note-worthy performance in portraying the deep sense of the tragedy of the times.
On the other hand, Sonia attempting to find her father, searching helplessly as she ran in the hospital corridors was both scary and terrorizing. We feared for her safety and were completely invested in her character as Maya Ali delivered a touching performance.
The drama also highlights the vulnerabilities and human limitations that exist within the armed forces. It gives us a peek into the minds, the thought process of military command, and the call of duty. We call them brave, but we never think about the price they have to pay mentally, emotionally, and physically.
On this note, we await the last episode of Jo Bichar Gaye, hoping that it does not make us cry!
