BAAGHI’S LAST EPISODE

BAAGHI’S LAST EPISODE

Urdu 1’s Baaghi has been the new drama serial that has stolen all the limelight. The story has everything a good drama serial should contain with a star studded cast, a solid story, good development and conflicts. Baaghi’s popularity has been on a meteoric rise, helping Urdu 1 to grow even further in terms of popularity. It seems that Baaghi’s and Urdu 1’s growth both shares a positive relationship with each other. Baaghi is a show inspired by true events and it’s pretty evident in that case. It’s about a young woman named Kanwal Baloch, played by Saba Qamar. Kanwal is shown as a rebellious female lead that does not conform to the misogynistic, discriminatory pillars set by society and wants to get into the spotlight, show biz and its glamorous lifestyle as she herself hails from a village, a pre-dominantly male social system. Saba Qamar seems as if she was made to play this role, perfectly resonating the gravity of every situation, showing how she reacts in peril or either in happiness. She’s has done a bang on job at playing the complex character she’s been given to fit in. Baaghi as a drama surely is one with a gripping hook to it and a multi-dimensional storyline which leaves the viewer’s asking for more.
