Maha Malik, who has written the script of this drama series has done a superb job and has really excelled himself. The dialogues are retainable by the viewers and have a huge impact on them as well. These dialogues are really heart wrenching at times and very few are able to stop a few tears rolling down their cheeks. The director of this series is Babar Javed and he has done an outstanding job in directing this entire series. The background music too is brilliant.
This is a great drama that teaches children to respect their parents & shows husbands what a wife and mother goes through. It is a drama series that everyone can learn by and once it is watched, it touches the viewers live and they never look at relationships the same way again. This series makes you get up and realize what is important in life and how relationships need to be treasured and cherished as well as how it is important to see things from someone else’s point of view.
