A review on Pakistani TV Comedy Drama Serial, Farwa Ki ABC (2015). The Production Company is A-Plus Entertainment.
I. Directed by Sohail Javed
II. Written by Aamna Mufti
III. Produced by Sadia Jabbar
Farwa Ki ABC was aired on A Plus from 24th Jul 2015 – 18th Dec 2015. It consists of total 20 episodes. The characters of Farwa and Mustansar reminded me of the similar main lead characters from the classic American musical film, My Fair Lady (1964).
+ Main Cast
- Soniya Hussain as Farwa
- Adnan Jaffar as Mustansar
- Ahmed Hassan as Gogi
- Yasir Mazhar as Junaid
+ Supportive Cast
- Irsa Ghazal as Begum
- Khalid Anam as Saeed
- Shehryar Zaidi as Junaid’s Dad
- Faryal Mehmood as Aqsa
A fun-loving girl haunted by ABC and her new English tutor. She will go to any lengths to stay away from studies, even if it means becoming the biggest trouble maker for all!
+ High Points
i – Ahmed Hassan’s performance was far better than rest of the cast while Soniya Hussain and Yasir Mazhar did okay. Ahmed played boyfriend role as ‘Gogi’, the carefree, school drop-out and lover of Farwa very reasonably.
ii – Junaid’s obsession of white color, either in the shape of clothes, walls, jewelry etc was amusing to watch.
+ Low Points
i – After 5th episode, one would realize that there is no story left for the viewers as this drama was stretched till 20 episodes in total which were too many to consume! Instead it would have been better if it was a miniseries with max. 5 – 6 episodes only.
ii – Naturally when there is hardly any story to move further then yes it would become boring with no motive to watch. I completely lost interest to know what was happening in further episodes including the finale.
iii – Most of the characters were dryly written with no developments in their respected roles.
iv – The production team’s intentions seemed as if to throw money, make aimless TV drama and waste viewers’ time.
Farwa Ki ABC is a collection of mostly missed gags which is tied together with a thin plot.
