The drama Alif, starring Hamza Ali Abbasi and Sajal Aly as the main characters, is gaining nationwide exposure because of its theme and catchy teasers.
What Is The Drama About?
The story of the drama revolves around an important issue that Pakistan faces mostly, which is the negative side of the entertainment industry. It seems that the story reaches out to mention that actors or actresses should not be manipulated by the toxic terms of the industry, and find their own way. Sajal Aly will be playing the role of Momina Sultan who is an up and coming actress. And Hamza Ali Abbasi is portraying a successful film director.
These two roles are enough for a person to realize what the plot will mostly focus on. The two characters are entirely different from each other and this leads to a bunch of conflicts between them. Abbasi’s character is outgoing and open, so he projects that same behavior onto the people that he works with. However, Aly’s character does not appreciate that, and despite being a struggling actress, she calls him out on his tactics.
The first trailer gives a good insight on the nature of the story and also introduces most of the characters to the viewers. People are also anticipating Alif because two of the most famous Pakistani celebrities will be sharing the screens. It is directed by Haseeb Hasan who also worked on famous dramas like Mann Mayal and Parwaaz Hai Junoon. The additional cast includes Ahsan Khan, Kubra Khan, and Osman Khalid Butt.
The recently released second trailer of the drama Alif dives a little deep into the relationship of the main two characters. At first, when one watches the first trailer, it seems that the drama give priority to the romantic element. However, as the further trailer drops, it is visible that we will get to see a discrepancy within the opinions of the two characters.
It is written on a topic that hits close too home for Pakistan. And it can serve as a great reminder that a lot of times our actors and actresses have to deal with tricky directors.
Most of the cast is full of prominent actors who are known for their impressive acting skills. So it is for sure that Pakistan is excited about Alif’s release!
