Aakhir Kab Tak is an Hum TV drama serial that started airing in May, 2021. Directed by Syed Ali Raza Usama, this drama is written by Radain Shah of Shehnai fame. I’m not a big fan of Shehnai, but Aakhir Kab Tak seems promising.
It stars Ushna Shah, Srha Asghar, Javeria Abbasi, Adeel Hussain, Azfar Rehman and Haroon Shahid in lead roles.
I’ve seen a couple of episodes and likes it immensely. My schedule did not allow me to indugle, thought. Now that I’m in Pune for a few weeks, I’m spending less time on household chores (the perks of living alone), so I have some time to spare. This has been recommended to me by a Liza. Thanks, Liza, for giving me the much-needed push to watch this drama.
Cast & Characters
The drama revolves around two lead couples, or four individuals if you want to appreciate them individually. Let’s meet the characters and their families. We will learn about their dynamics later on.
Ushna Shah as Noor
She is the lead. She is confident, strong, sassy and savage… We need characters like her.
Srha Asghar as Fajar
Noor’s younger sister. She’s Noor’s opposite in personality, though the two girls make for a good sibling pair. Fajar is confused, weak, timid and meek.
We don’t necessarily need such people, but such people do exist in real life. Boy, they have a tough life; tougher than us, I mean. We all have our fair share of troubles. What’s life without a few challenges. Am I right?
Javeria Abbasi as Safiya
Noor and Fajar’s mother. She is opressed, and constantly tortured-both mentally and physcially, by her husband and mother-in-law. She doesn’t think of it as abnormal. Safiya has a “Aise hi hota hai, aur aise hi hoga” type mentality.
Shahood Alvi as Ehtesham
Noor and Fajar’s father. He’s not nice people. He keeps whining and undermining Safia
Gul e Rana as Fareeda
Ehtesham and Taufique’s mother. She’s a venomous woman, I tell you. She makes Safiya’s life a living hell.
Akhtar Hasnain as Toufique
Ehtesham’s younger brother
Erum Akhtar as Rehana
Taufique’s wife, Fareeda’s neice. She’s a working woman, and very manipulative. She leads her life based on lies and meanness.
Taufique’s son, Noor’s supposed fiance. But his main role is to harass Fajar. He’s a piece of shit, that’s what he is.
Taufique’s daughter. She’s just like her mother-lies through her teeth and speaks ill of everyone.
Sara Asim as Nighat
Ahtisham and Toufique’s sister
Adeel Hussain as Nasir
The corrupt police officer with his heart in right place. He’s Noor’s… Let me put it this way. He likes Noor. Adeel is a fav, and he looks good in uniform. He looks handsome in civilan clothes as well, but you know what I mean.
Nasir’s younger brother and Noor’s classmate and a nice friend.
Haroon Shahid as Saim
Fajar’s husband. Very kind, very understanding, very considerate. He is the model husband, you know…
Sabahat Bukhari as Nilofar
Saim’s mother. She’s a very demanding lady. Everything should be as per my whim. At times, she sounds like me. Yeh aise kyu nahin hua? Meri marzi ke khilaaf kyu hua? But I’m not that mean. She’s something else.
Raja Haider as Aijaz
Saim’s father. He’s a nice and kind man, quite the opposite of Nilofar.
Inaya Khan as Nimra
Saim’s sister. She also plays Nasreen in Laapata. Nasreen is such a fun character. In this one, she is one of those few people who stand by Fajar. Nice girl!
Azfar Rehman as Zafar
A tuition class chemistry teacher. He had molested many girls including Fajar in the past. He’s the reason behind Fajar’s perpetual fear.
Nilofar’s friend, a gynaecologist
Saim’s stupid office friend. I call him stupid because he gives some shitty ideas to Saim
The rude Principal ma’am
Saad Azhar as Advocate Iftekhar
Zafar’s cunning lawyer
Anam Tanveer as Advocate Rubab
Fajar’s compassionate lawyer
I will be reviewing the episodes soon. So, stay tuned. Until then, check out my stories.
