Promo 1: Fawad Khan as Zaroon – writing his diary, reflecting on the various aspects of a woman’s personality, hinting at his tempestuous relationship with Kashaf, their nok jhonk, his aggravation at, and his reluctant interest in, this girl who has turned his ordered life upside down and challenges him every step of the way in college. His well furnished bedroom, his clothes, basically the overall look reflects his comfortable upper-class socio-economic background.
Promo 2: Sanam Saeed as Kashaf – writing her diary, reflecting on the challenges she faces as woman. Her frustration with her location in life is plainly evident in her words. Her clothes and humbly furnished room point to her less than luxurious background.
From the teasers we’ve seen so far it seems like the original format of Umera Ahmed’s story – narrated through diary entries – has been kept intact. It will be interesting to see how the new characters have been added in and how the original ones have been fleshed out. Zindagi Gulzar Hai also marks the return of the veteran director Sultana Siddiqui, and it is with great pleasure that I look forward to seeing her work her magic onscreen. Add to that Shahzad Kashmiri’s cinematography and MD Productions’ patented hallmark hall of fame stamp and seems like we have a winner here.
Having seen hugely anticipated projects go bust recently, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this one, but after seeing these teasers, I think we are rightfully excited. Fawad Khan looks, well… no need for me to say anything… you ladies can fill in the blanks more than adequately. Sanam Saeed is looking good as Kashaf. Initial prediction: No ashks here, methinks!
So, to answer the question I pose as the title of this post: Zindagi Gulzar Hai? Yes!!!!
