Jurm means ‘crime’ in Urdu. Hence, this thrilling series highlights the story of a newly wed couple and how their lives take a u-turn when a kidnapping incident takes place.
Moreover, how things unravel, and a chain of events follow is what makes the entire story. Wahaj Ali and Durefishan Saleem play the characters of Ayla and Daniyal .
Mere Hi Rehna
If you are into the typical style of drama series, Mere Hi Rehna is for you. It revolves around the life of two brothers who are married to two sisters. Their internal bond is very strong. However other family members often threaten them.
The story circles around the life of three sisters. It stars Juggan Kazim, Hina Altaf, Hina Khwaja and Maheen Sidiqui among others. Hence, Agar reveals how Qurrat ul Ain lives a life of dignity while Hooriya is the optimistic one. On the other hand, Chandni is the one who has lived a life of deprivation of appreciation and is always under the shadow of her elder sisters.
An over achiever, courageous, strong-willed and sweet at heart are a few ways to describe Mona. Mona is the lead character and the drama revolves around her story. While she has all the amazing qualities, the only downside in the eyes of the society is that she is a plus-sized girl. Hence, Mona has to face challenges, and struggle her way to find the right path when everyone is at her back to lose a few pounds for the sake of becoming beautiful and presentable.
Played by Sanam Jung impeccably, it is truly inspiring because we all needed a series highlighting the fact that women can be more than just eye-candy and that being overweight shouldn’t be viewed as a problem.
