Not all TV plays have the power to captivate audiences before the first episode. Mann Mayal seems like an exception.
When there are just two days left for the play to be aired on screen, it is no surprise that the teasers and promos of Mann Mayal have already created a lot of hype among viewers who can’t wait to watch it.
There is not one but many reasons to be excited about the play as it brings together many of those who have topped the fame chart in one way or the other.
The presence of the handsome Hamza Ali Abbasi who’s last TV serial Pyare Afzal took him to new heights of fame as well as of actor Maya Ali and director Haseeb Hassan from Diyar-e-Dil fame is one key attraction for fans.
Aisha Khan and Gohar Rasheed also star in pivotal roles, adding on to the list of an all-star cast that is sure to spice up the drama with their amazing performances.
Written by Samira Fazal, Mann Mayal is based on the love story of Salahuddin (Hamza Ali Abbasi) and Manahil (Maya Ali) who are shown as a decent couple truly in love with each other as per the promo. Salahuddin is asked to tutor Manahil who is his sister’s best friend, and here is how their story begins. The plot however takes a dramatic turn when some unfavorable situation arises for Manahil where even her family seems to be against her but Salahuddin decides not to leave her alone and takes her with him.
Set against the backdrop of a closely-knit family, Mann Mayal claims to have a unique storyline (as per the writer’s earlier statement to media) unlike many other plays that depict same old stories of divorce, second marriage, and sister rivalries.
Given the fact that Hamza Ali Abbasi last starred in the fun-fueled Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, this drama will bring the sober side of the actor on the forefront and that should make for a pleasant viewing.
Whether Mann Mayal lives up to the hype or not, only time will tell.
