Sajal Aly and Bilal Abbas have united for another project after their recent film Khel Khel Mein and it seems like their chemistry is working its charm. Their drama Kuch Ankahi, with just two released episodes, is being received really well by viewers who consider it a breath of fresh air.

Described as a “modern day, lighthearted drama”, the show discusses some heavy issues relating to women’s legal and religious right to property, harassment at workplaces and marriage pressure. Helmed by Nadeem Baig, the series has taken a cute and humorous approach to the storyline unfolding. Netizens are gushing over it on Pakistani Twitter and have particularly commented on the relatable and organic everyday moments, and the non-toxic bickering between leads and love interests, Aly and Abbas.

Kuch Ankahi is doing the enemies-to-lovers trope right.

We love it when art imitates life.

Serendipity at its finest.

We’re not too sure about that — ammi [mother] might have to get in line.

The seamless acting is making this user question whether a screen separates them from the characters at all.

Bechari [helpless] female leads are so last century.

Aaliya has got spunk and we’re digging it.

@ Netflix, you seeing this? Is Pakistani content Netflix worthy now?

A family drama, y’all!

Cheap imitation of Bollywood and Indian dramas

This is a refreshing show? It has the same run of the mill storyline revolving around shadi themes.

I saw few minutes of first episode. Could have been a bit better if Sajjal was not in there. But no one cares about acting or looks but just who you know.

@Maqsood Not quite. Bollywood is the name of stolen Pakistani music, stolen American MTV choreography and Hollywood stolen stories.

How come the actors seem well-fed? No forex crisis or food scarcity affecting them?
