Beyond the saas-bahu sagas and mundane love triangles, once in a while Pakistani show-makers produce a rare gem that sweeps the audiences off its feet. Jannat Se Aagey is one such drama airing on Geo that has captivated the audiences with its unique storytelling and distinct perspectives.
Breaking stereotypes, this drama challenges the general perceptions of media, celebrity, and ethical boundaries. With Jannat Se Aagay, the production house has introduced a drama that not only captivates but also provokes contemplation and leaves viewers with a lingering thought. Audiences are impressed with the many messages that the show is bringing to light through its riveting storyline that is written by the woman with a golden pen, Umera Ahmad.
All That Glitters is not Gold
Getting a sneak peek into the life of a morning show host and celebrities in the show, audiences watching are shown how it is not all rosy and that all that glitters is not gold. The world of showbiz and how the audience is manipulated for ratings was shown in many of the episodes where Jannat asks her guests to cry louder for more empathy from her viewers. The deceiving lives that celebrities often live has been shown brilliantly and kudos to the leading ladies Kubra Khan and Ramsha Khan for essaying their roles to perfection.
The Vulnerabilities of a Woman Highlighted through Jannat Se Aagay
The drama shows a highly successful woman, Jannat played by Kubra Khan and her biggest fan Tabassum (Ramsha Khan). Tabassum has always dreamed big and wants everything that Jannat does while Jannat has a picture perfect life on screen and a life that is totally off the rails off screen.
She is the great Jannat when the camera is on but an ignored wife when she comes back home. Her husband Noman (Gohar Rasheed) is using her for her money and fame while carrying on a secret relationship with his office colleague. However, she is always seen craving for her husband’s affection and deeply cares for him even while he clearly does not. Wanting to make her marriage work out is her biggest priority. Food for thought for the audiences who are asking the question, would Noman have been loyal to his wife if the roles were reversed and he was the star? We think not.
Shedding Light on the ‘Influencer Culture’
This drama effectively acts as a commentary on the pervasive influencer culture that is primarily driven by the world of social media and the magnetic pull of celebrities. Tabassum’s unwavering adoration for Jannat mirrors the very real phenomenon of fans becoming infatuated with public figures. She idolises her to the extent of becoming the housekeeper and nanny for her children in order to be closer to Jannat.
Ramsha Khan’s portrayal of Tabassum’s innocence has been impeccable and as the story progresses we can see how her character is turning towards the gray shades. Stealing Jannat’s clothes, buying the same grocery items for her own house from Jannat’s money and lying through her teeth only because Jannat blindly trusts her. As the storyline progresses, Tabassum undergoes a transformation from a starry-eyed admirer into a person who is full of deceit, ensnarling Jannat is her many schemes.
