THE WEEK THAT WAS
Baaghi | Urdu1, Thursday 8.00pm
Saba Qamar continues to give a stellar performance as her role adds many layers in the serial. According to the channel’s sources the serial is currently trending at number two. Osman Khalid Butt has yet to make his much-awaited entry.
So far, the casting has proved to be perfect with Khalid Malik fabulous in a role which could so easily go overboard. Other supporting actors such Saba Faisal, Nadia Afgan, Ali Kazmi and Mani are also top notch. Tremendous work has gone in by Umera Ahmed (screenplay) and Shazia Khan (story), while hats must be doffed also to director Farooq Rind for his immaculate handling of the huge cast for this riveting mega-project.
What to watch out for
