With lives restricted to home, we have nothing else to do than binge on a mega series and spend our quarantine season talking about it day in – day out. Now that Ramazan has graced us with its blissful days, the culture of Ramazan transmissions has changed completely with regards to the current global pandemic. Amidst all this, Geo has yet again set the bar high. Yes, you got it right, we are talking about the channel’s most talked about series ‘Dikhawa’ and ‘Makafaat’ that have totally kept us glued to our tv screens this Ramazan!
After the huge success of ‘Makafaat’ last year in Ramazan, Geo is back with another mega-project ‘Dikhawa’, a series with different morality based stories. It depicts the importance of simple living and how pretentious living can lead to dreadful consequences. Whereas, the steps taken with empathy and a pure heart will lead to joy and peace ultimately.
The best part about both the series is that they are not your typical ‘one-go’ drama serial, in fact, they both consist of a series of different stories – a new one for each episode. So, if you miss a day without tuning in, you haven’t missed out on anything! Both drama serials have meaningful lessons for the audience, especially considering it is Ramadan. They not only engage with aspects of our societal issues but encourages you to look at life from a different perspective.
‘Dikhawa’ is this year’s new offering from the channel, which tells a different story from our everyday life about people who fall prey to the evil of pretentious living and its consequences. The series airs every day at 5:30 PM on Har Pal Geo as part of their Ehsaas Ramzan transmission.
‘Makafaat’ on the other hand, with its successful airing last year in Ramazan, is back again with its second season highlighting the message of ”what you sow, so shall you reap”. The series airs daily at 7pm after their Ehsaas Ramzan transmission on Har Pal Geo.
Both dramas have been produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi’s 7th Sky Production in association with Geo – the duo behind the channel’s success over the last couple of years. Not only that, but all the stories have been written by the most acclaimed and highly talented writers in their field, as every episode that we have come across till date offers quality content.
Talk of the Town!
Well, one thing’s for sure, the audiences are simply loving the content as both series have become the talk of the town on every possible social media networking site – from Facebook to Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. By taking a dramatic route, these stories not only hold our attention but also help us relate to religious teachings in light of real life situations. That makes the series engaging for all ages, which is probably why ‘Dikhawa’ & ‘Makafaat’ are trending on social media.
Not only their content, but the soulful soundtracks for both series have been written, composed, and sung by the super talented Sahir Ali Bagga and we are absolutely in love with them. The OST of both series give us a clear message to do good for the sake of doing good and not just showing off.
Here’s what actually makes ‘Dikhawa’ & ‘Makafaat’ standout
Firstly, both series sty away from typical ’saas bahu’, politics & love-triangle topics, which itself is a huge relief to one’s eyes. Moreover, with the current pandemic, the serials encourage us to live life with simplicity and empathy, showing us how to avoid questionable societal habits. No wonder Geo has managed to garner such a huge response and that too not only from Pakistan but people binge-watching the series from across the world on youtube.
