Most people are aware of Asghar Nadeem Syed as a notable playwright who has written a number of successful dramas to his credit. Among these, 'Chand Girhan', 'Khuda Zameen Se Gaya Nahin' and 'Piyas' have received wide acclaim from the television audiences. However, his writing skills were not only limited to himself but also provided exposure to his wife Farzana Nadeem Syed to display her talent as a playwright.
Those lovers of TV dramas who remember the glorious period of Pakistan Television (PTV) during the mid 1990s, also remember some of the most prolific and fantastic dramas that were presented during this era. One of the most memorable drama serials of this era was undoubtedly 'Hawayain'. Although it was Farzana's first and only attempt at writing dramas, she hit the mark right from the word go.
With its realistic portrayal of life and its ironies, the drama got immense popularity among the audiences. Added to that were the flawless direction of seasoned director Haider Imam Rizvi and some fine acting skills displayed by seasoned actors like Talat Hussain, Ghazala Yasmeen, Huma Nawab, Sajid Hasan, Marina Khan and others.
