The new show seem to have a lot of similarity to the old Bengali classic
Stories see no boundaries; they become transcendental when they are shared across borders and countries. This stands true when we talk about Zindagi’s latest show from across the border Thakan. Not many people know that Thakan, which was extremely lauded during its run in Pakistan, is actually inspired from a 1960 Bengali movie Meghe Dhaka Taara written and directed by acclaimed film maker Ritwik Ghatak.
Thakan is a heart-wrenching tale of a young woman named Sadaf, who spends all of her life sacrificing her hopes and dreams for the sake of her family, yet ploughs through all the hardships and never gives up. Similarly, based in Calcutta, Meghe Dhaka Taara traces the story of a young girl Neeta, a self-sacrificing person who is constantly exploited by everyone around her, even her own family, who takes her goodness for granted. Like Neeta, Sadaf is also a self-sacrificing girl who is betrayed by everyone including her own mother. Both the film and the serial showcase the journey of the loss of love, even if that is the love of one’s own family.
Saba Qamar, who was last seen in Maat is playing the character of Sadaf, a character similar to Meghe Dhaka Taara’s Neeta, which was played by yesteryear’s popular Bengali actress Supriya Chaudhary.
Tune in to Zindagi to watch Thakan, Monday to Sunday at 8.55 pm!
