No matter how good or bad the script or plot of any drama or performance is, if directed skillfully, it can be turned into a masterpiece as well. While the script is mere words and characters, it is actually the director of a drama who breathes life into it through his handling of the script and how well he translates the understanding of what the writer is trying to say through his script into the drama and scenes he depicts.
The growth of private channels in Pakistan has provided numerous opportunities to individuals who want to make a career in drama direction. This has now become very apparent with the large number of new entrants who have brought forward some of the most popular dramas produced in recent times. One such newcomer is Tahir Malik.
Although he only has one drama to his credit till now, Tahir's direction in the drama series 'Divane Muhabbat (Love Story 2010)', which aired on ATV, was appreciated for his attention to detail.
