The trailer for the Pakistani online series Dhoop Ki Deewar has been out, and it is both thought-provoking and entertaining.
The web series of cross-border love tale, starring Sajal Aly as Sara from Pakistan and Ahad Raza Mir as Vishal from India, depicts the narrative of two families touched by the nation’s struggle.
The trailer depicts the narrative of two families that lose loved ones along the Line of Control – both protagonists lose their dads in border fire and communicate their grief through social media, much to their families’ astonishment and horror.
The families label one another as ‘Dushman (enemy).’ However, an online conversation between Sara (Sajal) and Vishal (Ahad) alters their perception of the issue.
Their families don’t understand how the two can have empathy for one another, but their shared experience with loss and suffering pulls them together. Sara and Vishal are seen asking their family how long this game of death will go.
Meanwhile, the series’ author, Umera Ahmed, has received appreciation on social media for the subject matter and has issued a ten-point statement in response to the charges.
She describes Dhoop Ki Deewar as a societal tragedy about those whose family members gave their life for their different countries. – ‘Families must encounter obstacles, and this narrative addresses such issues on a larger scale.
Moreover, responding to accusations that she is in support of Aman Ki Asha and is promoting it, she says, ‘Is hoping for peace a criminal act or a sin? Our religion is all about peace and safety. There is nothing wrong with talking about peace.’
The series will premiere on June 25 on ZEE5 written by Umera Ahmad and directed by Haseeb Hassan.
No matter who wins the war, both nations face the loss.
When everything falls apart, what will they choose: Hate or Heart?
