Karachi-based widower Khan Bahadur Wajad Khan, displeased with his only son, Nasir's, antics, asks him to get married to one of two sisters, Dolly and Seema. Nasir, in the company of his friend, Sahir, travels there, and asks the latter to impersonate him, while, he himself, introduces himself as Sahir. Once there, Sahir falls for Dolly, while Nasir falls for the sisters' cousin, Najma Choudhry, who is treated like a maidservant. Their impersonation is discovered by Wajad Khan, who, at first objects, but subsequently gives his approval. But they will be in for nothing but shocks and surprises when Dolly and Seema's mother reveals that Najma is the unwed mother of a male child. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One that can be watched a million times over and still doesn't lose its magic!
7 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is great! The story starts off very Cinderella-like, Najma (Zeba) is introduced as an orphaned child raised by her rich relatives in Murree (Beautiful Kashmiri Town - North of Pakistan) where she is treated like a lesser mortal than her two cousin sisters (very Jane Eyre) The story then moves on to Nasir (Waheed Murad) playing a rich spoilt bachelor from Karachi, his dad gets fed up of his only sons antics, decides its time he put his foot down,and picks a girl for him from Murree which just happens to be Najmas cousin sister Seema (this Seema happens to have a deep dark secret!). The inevitable happens Nasir and Najma meet in peculiar circumstances and fall in love. (Cue some classic Waheed Murad comedy and hilarious antics and the most romantic songs *sigh* GIRLS HE IS SOOOO GORGEOUS IN THIS FILM!)

Sounds like you have heard it all before, but only the beginning might be Cinderella or Jane Eyre-esqe trust me on its originality it has a lot of twists and turns and tragedy... i was weeping buckets!! This truly is a must-see film, if anyone is to watch any Pakistani film ever, watch this one!
