This long play deals with the situation of Pakistani society that emerged after the partition and tells how things changed after 1947. To keep the past and present side by side, the character of Mirza Ghalib is produced who comes back to life after meeting Mir Taqi Mir in heavens to see what’s going on in India and Pakistan which jointly were home to him decades back. Ghalib after facing the changing world recalls his gone times and finally leaves the world again.
Aangan Terha was, and it is, so nostalgic to watch. Written by Anwar Maqsood and directed by Qaisar Farooq, it is among the most celebrated dramas PTV has ever produced. With a very small cast but an attractive story, Aangan Terha earned huge appreciation.
