Music & Movies
For any drama, its script lays the foundation for it to be termed a success or failure. Pakistan has been very fortunate to have produced a large number of drama writers who wrote television dramas of all genres and made the audiences fall in love with them. Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar is also one of the most successful playwrights who have been rendering their services to Pakistani television.
Having written the popular drama 'Boota From Toba Tek Singh', aired from PTV World, Khalil-ur-Rehman achieved fame due to his realistic storylines that talked about common social issues. His drama 'Landa Bazaar' (also aired on PTV) also became immensely popular and was appreciated for its bold approach. Another one of his dramas 'Chandpur Ka Chandu' was also aired from PTV and had more or less the same cast as 'Boota From Toba Tek Singh'. From there onwards, Khalil-ur-Rehman has come a long way in drama writing as now his dramas are being aired on almost all private channels.
He has written a number of dramas for the channel ATV including 'Adhuri Film Ki Puri Kahani', 'Dilli Kay Baankay', 'Uss Par' and 'Muhabbat Haar, Muhabbat Jeet'. Since he is based in Lahore, most of his dramas are a reflection of the rural and urban culture of Punjab and deal with the issues prevalent in those areas. He has also written Karachi-based drama 'Tumhain Kuch Yaad Hai Jaanan' for Geo TV, starring great actors like Rubina Ashraf and Qazi Wajid.
His drama 'Jab Hatheli Par Chand Likhna' was aired from Indus TV and was produced by seasoned actress Maria Wasti, who also appeared in one of the major roles alongside Sajid Hasan, Adnan Siddiqui and Kashif Mehmood.
Khalil-ur-Rehman has also written the script for the movie 'Koi Tujh Sa Kahan', which launched the directorial debut for popular Lollywood actress Reema Khan.
