Featured: A Review of the Pakistani Drama “Ehd-e-Wafa”

Ehd-e-Wafa Drama Overview

I would give the Ehd-e-Wafa drama a 5-star rating because its realistic storyline and nostalgic vibes are really great. It is a Pakistani military drama TV series co-produced by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) and Momina Duraid Productions. This drama was written and directed by Mustafa Afridi and stars Saif Hasan. Ehd-e-Wafa means “promise of fidelity.”

The main cast of the show includes the current stars; Ahad Raza Mir as Saad, Osman Khalid Butt as Shazain, Ahmed Ali Akbar as Shehryar, Wahaj Ali as Shariq, as well as Faraz Inaam (Saad’s father, who served as a brigadier general in the Pakistan Army) and Vaneezah Ahmed (Saad’s mother). Other famous actresses who have played female leads in movies are Zara Noor Abbas, who played Rani, and Alizey Shah, who played Dua.

The plot

The story begins with a blissful moment when four best friends from different social backgrounds – Saad, Shariq, Shahzain and Shehryar – study together at Lawrence College in Murrie. Then, as the story progresses, some misunderstandings arise between the four, leading them to go their separate ways in the most important sectors of the country. Saad joins the Pakistan Army and follows in his father’s footsteps, Brigadier General Faraz, who was indebted to the famous 90’s show Alpha Bravo Charlie.

For example, Shazain with a family background of feudal lords was elected to the position of deputy ambassador. Sheharyar, with the weak support of her family, burned the midnight oil and eventually became an assistant commissioner. When Shariq became a well-paid presenter in Pakistani media after going through a difficult time. Thus, it turns into four different life stories, their real-time struggles along the way, and how they eventually come together, to serve their country and nation.

Female characters

Among the actresses, Zara Noor Abbas as Rani, is the most versatile, distinguished by her acting skills and beautiful expressions. Granted, she came as comic relief during the tough times that happened side by side. Vaneeza Ahmed suits her character Saad’s mother best, reminding us of her graceful and elegant acting in the 90s. While Alizey Shah as Dua can’t quite justify her lead role. in the movie until the very last scenes. In the end, she performed much better than her performance in previous episodes. Others including Hajira Yamin as Ramsha and Momina Iqbal as Masooma also performed well. So besides the great story, the compelling acting of the actors made this drama a huge success. Review of the deep message in its roots

The male characters

All the actors performed excellently. Ahad Raza Mir (Saad), Ahmed Ali (Sheharyar), Wahaj Ali (Shariq) and Osman Khalid Butt (Malik Shazain) have clearly demonstrated their roles as true friends with different personalities. Occasionally, they will go too far to please their audience and it is very difficult to decide which is better or which is different. Then debuted supporting actor Adnan Samad Khan as Gulzaar, the head of the rest. The moment of sheer humour, Saraikin’s signature voice and natural expressiveness towards the end of the film were appreciated by viewers. Another troubadour, Faraz Inam, won the hearts of the people again as Brigadier Faraz after being hugely loved as Captain Faraz on the show Alpha Bravo Charlie in the 90s.

Social Context

While it was an entertaining, enjoyable, and moving drama to watch, it brought up some important aspects of our people and country. For example, the film shows class differences and different lifestyles through Saad and Shazain being the elite while Shariq and Sheharyar are of the lower class. The film also tries to highlight this misconception about the military that the Pakistani army gives special favour to the descendants of the army. On the other hand, others from weak backgrounds are suffering, beautifully rendered in the form of Gulzaar Hussain, who passed away from PMA with a medal.

The four friends represent the main bodies of Pakistan such as the military forces, politics, civil servants and media. These departments are responsible for running this country, painting a realistic picture of how they operate from the inside out. Of course, one person cannot bring about change when others are corrupt, so you have to think about that. The real motive behind the story is that if these people are loyal, sincere, and united for their homeland, nothing can defeat Pakistan.

Why is it great?

I liked this drama because of its unique and refreshing plot, so Ehd-e-Wafa’s drama review received 5 stars. Instead of women-focused content with the same storyline being played repeatedly on our TV screens. It’s mentally refreshing, focusing on patriotic men who know our soldiers are willing to sacrifice anything for the honour of our beloved Motherland. In addition, the dialogues bring their passions and emotions to life. It represents hard-working, self-innovative people like Sheharyar. At the same time, it also shows that true friendship never fades, being renewed each time with more love and respect. Certainly, the addition of a true event about the pilot of the Indian invader Abey Nandon being captured by Pakistan adds an interesting twist to the plot, with the famous line being quoted as “True tea” great”.


The drama is built with suspense throughout with an unpredictable ending, surprising the audience at the last minute when they are overflowing with emotions. Moreover, it also depicts the actual daily sacrifices of many heroic and courageous sons of the ancestral homeland. The whole plot seems to be perfect, practically from the training of the PMA academy, and their uniforms to the fight against the final enemy, this was made possible with the help of ISPR. So it’s a pleasure to watch such a great game in this time of need. We hope to see more dramas like this in the future.
