I had binged this drama back in 2017 when I was smitten with the talend that is Zahid Ahmad. I wasn’t big on reviewing dramas then. But I liked some bits of this series–those bits being Zahid Ahmad’s presence on screen. I also liked the Dubai hotel scene, so much that I remember it vividly even now.
I was searching for Dil Na Umeed Toh Nahin. I couldn’t find that on YouTube but I found this, and I thought–hey, why not?
So, here goes. I binged it again last week, and this time I won’t miss on the reviews.
Let’s meet the cast and characters first.
