If you haven't watched Dastaan already, what have you been doing with your life?
All's not lost though: you can watch it now. One of our industry's most iconic drama on television again; Hum TV just announced that they'll be airing the show as well as putting it back up on YouTube.
Set during the tumultuous time of Partition and Independence, Dastaan told the story of Hassan and Bano, torn apart by events far beyond their control. The sheer complexity and scale of such a project would daunt anyone but was skillfully handled by director Haissam Hussain.
Marshalling multiple locations, a huge star cast and all the political sensitivities and historical details while still maintaining a critical balance makes this drama stand head and shoulders above the crowd. Khan, Sanam Baloch, Ahsan Khan, Saba Qamar and Mehreen Raheel gave superlative performances to match Samira Fazal’s wonderful script.
