Along with signifying the unofficial end of summer and the begining of a new academic cycle, this year September is also the month when a whole bunch of new serials go on air. Ab aap in sab mein se kiya dekhenge aur kiya pass karenge yeh tau huyi ba’ad ki baat, for now let’s take a look at what the different channels have in store for us.
Written by Aymal Raza and directed by Ramish Rizvi, Faisla stars Sonia Mishal, Goher Mumtaz, Ali Abbas, Saba Hamid, Waseem Abbas, Humaira Zaheer and others. This serial has opened its account with a double episode on Monday at 8:00 pm on ARY Digital. Did any of you check it out? If not, here are some teasers:
This one is written by Amna Mufti, directed by Adnan Wai Qureshi and co-produced by Momina Duraid and Mehroze Karim, this one stars Samina Peerzada, Affan Wahid, Gohar Mumtaz, Sumbul Iqbal and Ushna Shah. Some of you might remember this from way back in 2015 when it aired on HUM Sitaray. A few episodes in this serial was then shut down on account of some unexplained reasons, but is now ready to aired again on HUM TV. Watch out for the first episode to air this Friday. Don’t know how the story will pan out, but the Kaashmir setting sure is scenic.

This issue-based sponsored serial is written by Shahid Nizami, directed by Angeline Malik and produced by Angelic Films in coordination with Center For Communications Pakistan. This serial has been in the news quite a bit because it marks the return of Nadia Jamil to TV and also signals Mehreen Raheal’s comeback after a sabbatical. Other notable names in the cast include Salman Shahid, Gohar Rasheed, Sarmad Khoosat, Ali Tahir, Hania Amir, and others. The story touches upon several issues endemic to rural areas but revolves primarily around the question of child marriages, a detailed synopsis can be found here. The first episode is slated to air on Monday September 11, on Urdu 1.
Written by Saji Gul, now of O Rungreza fame, this serial is directed by Mazhar Moin and stars Sania Saeed, Atiqa Odho, Rashid Farooqui, Farah Shah, Saniya Shamshad, Fawad Khan and others. From the teasers this seems to have all the makings of an intense serial. Check out what Sania Saeed had to say about her character
Piyari Bitto is slated to air this Saturday at 8pm on Express Entertainment. Check out these teasers.
This is the much awaited and anticipated sequel to writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s mega hit serial Landa Bazar, which aired in 2002. Directed by Dilawar Malik (who also directed the original) this sequel picks up the story fifteen years later with a mix of original and new characters. Babar Ali returns as Bali as does Khalil ur Rehman as Hukum. While many of the original cast members are expected to return, Ali Zafar’s reprisal of his character still remains unconfirmed. Among the new cast are included Saba Hamid, Faryal Memhood and Turab Khalil. Though the air date for the first episode is yet to be announced, it is confirmed that this mega serial will air on APlus TV very soon.
Apart from these, there are several other serials that have recently started airing and included among them are Pagli on HUM TV (which I watched and reviewed) and the Nauman Ijaz, Iffat Omar and Seher Afzal starrer Imam Zamin on TVOne, which did not appeal to me, at least not the first episode.
So, guys this was the lowdown on September’s harvest of dramas … any which one caught your interest? Which ones you planning on checking out?
