Cast and Characters

Imran Ashraf as Mureed

The namak halal protagonist with hatred and revenge bubbling in his chest.

Young Mureed

Babar Ali as Amin Qureshi

Mureed’s “maalik”. The ruthless enigma who doesn’t hesitate from destroying slums and houses of hundreds of poor family

Sarah Khan as Aina

Amin’s older daughter

Salma Asim as Asiya

Mrs Amin Qureshi, Aina’s mother

Sunita Marshal as Malaika

Amin’s “side-chick” for lack of a better term. She looks stunning, she demands Amin’s attention-just a woman wants the man to acknowledge their relationship.

Aniqa Zehra Khawaja


Mohsin Ejaz




Nabeela Khan


Munshi Karam Deen

Mureed’s late father

Mizna Waqas

Mureed’s late mother, a dark spot in the past. She had committed suicide and that’s one of the reasons Mureed is on a revenge mission.

Lubna Aslam as Mona

Asiya’s friend


Amin Qureshi’s buisness partner, only 30 per cent though

First Impression

This drama promises to be dark and ugly, but something is still intriguing and refreshingly new about this. I guess I’ve missed seeing Imran in a serious avatar since Mushk. Sarah and Imran are good together, as we’ve seen in Raqs-e-Bismil. Also, revenge based stories are fun.

So, to sum up, I might watch the first episode, and then decide if it’s worth my energy.


I will add more characters as I watch the series.

Until next review, please check out my books on Amazon.
