Geo entertainment channel has been always at the forefront when it comes to portray something out of the box and illustrating the contemporary issues in society. As Pakistan is going through dark times owing to corona virus epidemic, media is accentuating the matter to create awareness in the society about the danger engulfing the world. Produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi of 7TH Sky Entertainment, Makafaat is based on contemporary problems and issues happening around town and presented in the most realistic manner. Burgeoning cases of corona virus in Pakistan call for substantial precautionary measures to be taken to minimalize the effect further. Many people are not taking this novel virus quite seriously and not following instructions by government in particular.
Pakistani media is making pertinent efforts in provoking the nation to stay safe amidst this deadly pandemic. It’s the season 2 of Makafaat, based on the theme What you sow shall you reap and lately it has presented an episode on 11th May 2020 depicting the current issue which is corona virus predominantly.
Directed by Saleem Ganchi and written by Amber Azhar, it was a much-needed episode to make people contemplate about on-going situation and difficult times we are going through as a nation.
This specific episode named “Zindagi Anmol Hai “solemnly highlights the common behavior observed in society during epidemic and how eventually it causes desolation. All characters in the episode have been intelligently written with ultimate clarity that ultimately exuded the message in perfect manner. Story showcases the lifestyle and their approach towards gravity of the uncertain condition i.e. Corona virus. Evidently fabricating two types of behaviors persist in our society regarding the outbreak.
Two brothers, sheerly having different ways of dealing with the current situation and eventually faced outcomes according to their conduct. One brother, who tends to take all precautionary measures since it all started, perseveres to live a healthy life whereas other one, who ignored the impact of this novel epidemic, suffered gravely. This episode, indeed, emphasized the momentous times we are living in and what we ought to do to save ourselves and our loved ones.
Living in the same house but having different mindset regarding current scenario, the storyline and screenplay have elevated the subsequent message. All the scenes contributed something new to the storyline. From exemplary cast to natural expressions on point, the drama depicts the concrete situation faced by all Pakistanis.
Director has clearly opted best actors for the episode that includes Fazila Qazi, Humera Bano, Sohail Sameer, Farhan Ally Agha, Arisha Razi. Furthermore, the dialogue delivery and true essence of the concept have been dealt well. (Farhan Aly Agha) had been warning his brother (Sohail Sameer) to avoid going out in these dark times as consequences can be fatal. But his brother did not listen to him and continued to do so. His wife (Humera Bano) also took everything non-seriously and eventually had to pay price for her negligence as his husband affected by corona virus. The episode “Zindagi Anmol Hai” has been wrapped up well as they both realized their mistake.
Demonstrating rightly the circumstances, the episode by Makafaat has given us chills and accentuated the matter to the fullest. The scenes are all realistic and constructs the fine sequence of events, making it more prone to relate to our lives
Written acclaimed writers such as Huma Hina Nafees, Rehan Zaheer, Anwer Gillani, Umar Qazi,and Ramia Salma, this drama has all the elements necessary to educate people concerning corona virus pandemic. It’s obligatory to face the reality rather than ignoring the surmounting danger around us. We, as a nation, have to combat this fight against the epidemic and curb it’s spread ultimately.
