Let’s start a brand new story…
Yep, Boyzone song…
Monday is free these days as the super annoying Ishqiya has ended. ARY Digital has not aired the finale episode so I cannot comment on how it ended. It was loud while it lasted.
Anywho, off to a new show to fill the vacancy. Mushk is perfect because the first episode aired on August 17, 2020. It is better to review right from the first episode so there is no backlog to clear.
Mushk has quite impressive credentials associated with it. Written by Imran Ashraf and directed by Aehsun Talish, this new HUM TV drama has a retro feeling in contemporary setting.
Let’s meet the cast and characters, shall we?

Imran Ashraf as Adam
The cool dude with a mustache who secretly loves Mahek but this is not much of a secret because his sister knows.

Stern grandfather and patriarch of the family

One of the many servants. He flutters his eyes when he talks, like me. But I do it when I am nervous.
Zulekha’s brother who aspires for a political career
Ahmad Malik’s doctor, has a fling with Zulekha and then with Guddi. Shrewd man!
Qavi Khan as Quli
A bit philosophical and Sufi like quli.

Mahek’s husband and one of the cellmate.

I think he is Sohail Sameer. Muqaddar Khan put him in the cell to marry Sajjad’s fiance, Masooma’s mother now.

Shayan’s brother-in-law, Muqaddar Khan’s aide
