Cast and Characters
Looking at the big names in cast, we know there are going to be some interesting characters.
Rida & Family
Neelam Muneer as Rida
She is the youngest of the family. Having three older brothers has not spoiled her, not one bit. She is sweet, loving and caring.
Saba Faisal as Khadija, Rida’s mother
As a widow, she has raised her children alone. She is positive, keeps balance and has nurtured a loving family. Her only fear is that nothing should happen to her family. Too bad, mama, cuz the daughter-in-law you have chosen is everything but loving.
Ali Abbas as Faham
Faham is the eldest son.
Hammad Farooqui as Hatim
Hatim returns from America after doing his masters. He is a fitness freak and has a short temper. He easily gets angry when it comes to Rida. In all other cases, he is shown to control his anger and calm himself. For instance, he resolves the dispute between Zeeshan and boss, twice.
Syed Areez as Asim, Rida’s youngest brother
Zeeshan & Family
Imran Ashraf as Zeeshan
Zeeshan is a heir of ‘karoRoN ka business’. He is shy, talks less, and has a lot of self-respect. Also, he is shown to reminisce the glories of the past too frequently. He often comes across as hypersensitive and emotional. I think he can easily be manipulated.
Saba Hameed as Zeeshan’s mother
She is one of the many unnamed characters of the story. Her on screen persona is always referred to as Maa ji. She has seen good times, but the times have changed and she has adapted to it well.
As Zeeshan’s late father Rahman
Shehzad Mukhtar as Zeeshan’s Mama
Zeeshan’s unnamed Mamu. He is Maa Ji’s brother. Rehman and Mrs Rehman have helped him in the past. He takes it upon him to repay the favour. He stands by them when they are facing turbulent times. He offers them to stay in his other house.
Farah Nadeem as Zeeshan’s Mami
Zeeshan’s unnamed Mami. Unlike typical sister-in-law, she is a nice woman and is willing to help Zeeshan and his mother. What a welcome surprise!
Shameela & Family
Nazish Jahangir as Shameela
Shameela is Faham’s fiance and picky about every little thing. She has a bad temper and a sharp tongue. She is greedy, an obsessive liar and jealous by nature. Nothing I say here can summarize the evil person she is.
Nida Mumtaz as Rehana
Shameela mother, Rida’s khala
Hasan Noman as Salman
Madiha Rizwi as Nayla
Nayla is Shameela’s cousin sister in law & Salman’s wife. although she never hesitated to bicker and argue with Shameela, something tells me that she has good intentions at heart.
Rushna & Family
as Rushna, Rida’s best friend
Ali Ansari as Tauqeer
Beena Chaudhry as Rushna’s mother
Did you notice something? A few characters are still not named. Poor exposition in that regard. How would the reviewer refer to those characters? I mean… Poora na sahi, first name hi de diya hota. Maa ji, Rushna’s mother, Zeeshan’s Mama and Mami… Don’t they have existence of their own?
Also, we don’t know their surnames. Just saying!
Next, I will post the reasons I am watching this drama. Stay tuned!
