Cereal Entertainment presents Pujaran on Tv One

Pujaran – Synopsis

 

A woman’s passion for money threatens to destroy many lives.

 

The beautiful Madiha marries Ramis for his wealth.

Then destiny brings Abis closer to her.

But Abis is married to her best friend Haniya.

Will Madiha accept her fate? Or will she fight for what she loves?

 

Character Sketches

 

Madiha : Abeautiful young woman who yearns to acquire wealth and status. Coming from a deprived low middle class background, Madiha is not mean by nature but she is determined to break away from her environment even if it means making tough choices.  Her innocent looks and humble manner make her seem helpless and vulnerable – something she uses to get what she wants.

 

Ramis : Sober and responsible Ramis is a caring son and loving brother. He has become a workaholic because he doesn’t want to burden his younger brother Abis with business matters. This untiring devotion to work leads to major health issues which he ignores. On meeting Madiha , he is charmed by her beauty and  innocence and decides to give her all the happiness he can—

because his trusting nature cannot see that she is drawn to

him for his money.

 

Abis : Ramis’s younger brother who believes in living life to the fullest. A lively young man with a naughty sense of humour, Abis

is romantically involved with his cousin Haniya and wants to marry her some day. When fate brings him closer to Madiha he is unable to see her true colours and finds himself in a difficult and dangerous situation. Although he is not a petty man, Abis hates deceit and believes in punishing anyone who has harmed him.

 

Haniya : Gentle and kind Haniya is a good friend to all but has a close relationship with Madiha. Despite knowing of Madiha’s modest background, she suggests her name to Ramis’s mother when his marriage is being planned. She endures many hardships later on because of Madiha but does not expose her friend often forgiving her for her thoughtless behavior.

The veteran poet, dramatist, film and theatre director Sarmad Sehbai has brilliantly scripted the film based on the struggles of a contemporary poet and draws parallels with the life of Mir Taqi Mir

Gone are the days when every other Pakistani movie was “Maula jatt Noori Nath Style”

Pakistani cinema is back with a bang with some praise worthy movies over the past years.

With most released films in 2015. Three of which were massive blockbusters, the most awaited revival of  Pakistani cinema is happening, Slowly but Steadily.

We see a new Pakistani movie every so often with a great script and a better direction.

Mah-e-Mir a movie based on the life of a contemporary poet of present times and how his life draws parallel with the legendary literary figure, Mir Taqi Mir, is yet another film every movie enthusiast is looking forward to this year. Releasing on May 5th in the UAE and across Pakistan on May 6th 2016, Mah-e-Mir shows potential with its astral cast and production crew.

Some of his notable works include dramas like Thoda Toda PyarKhuda aur Mohabbat and Mirat Ul Uroos that highlight some sensitive issues along with other topics.

A lasting legacy to be celebrated, some of Mir’s impeccable and notable couplets like:

 “Hasti apni habab ki si hai, Yeh numaish ik serab ki si hai”

 “Ibtidaa-e-ishq hai rotaa hai kyaa, Aage aage dekhiye hotaa hai kyaa”

The movie has used poetry of course  by Mir and sung by. BinaRajab AliFarid AyazAbu Muhammad Qawal and Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan

The first video song of Mah-e-Mir “Us Ka Kharam” is out.

The first look and complete song line-up of Mah-e-Mir would be available digitally for all to view and download, and would be the first of a series of videos to go digital daily till all the music will be available on the internet.

This will be the first time that a movie that shows a par with a contemporary poet of present and Mir Taqi Mir’s life, will hit the silver screens, produced by Sahir Rasheed and Khurram Rana.

What’s more, the coveted avatar of Mir/Jamal in the movie is donned by Fahad Mustafa. Alongside him is the cream of the crop Iman Ali as Mir’s courtesan loverSanam Saeed as Naina Kanwal and Aly Khan as Nawab Sahab with Manzar Sehbai and Huma Nawab.
