Alpha Bravo Charlie PTV HOME Masterpiece
Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie respectively — and their friendship. These passionate young men wish to start their careers in the Pakistan army. In the initial episodes, ample footage is used to detail the background of every individual and the circumstances under which they enroll for the armed forces. Faraz is Mr Perfect, the guy who does everything right while Gulsher is a polite, simple-minded, shy person. Kashif is originally the funny man responsible for providing most of the comic relief through his antics, pranks and mischief. Eventually the series morphs into a coming-of-age story where the lead characters realize that there is more to life than their present happy-go-lucky lifestyle as they experience reality in all its fragility and extremities — jealousy, heartbreaks, trauma and death. Another important character is Shahnaaz, a confident, educated and well-mannered young lady, who plays an important role in the lives of these friends. Her involvement with them in the role of friend, wife and confidante adds reality to the series that is poignant and touching on a personal level. The main theme of the drama is that every person should lead a purposeful existence and that, if one has the will and the passion, he can achieve anything.
many times we have seen such dramas in which the story revolves around the sense of devotion towards country? All we have seen are misunderstandings, extra marital affairs, second marriages, love triangles, women running after their cousins who show zero interest in them. For God’s sake there is something beyond this crap. The beauty of ABC is the central point of the story which has everything to do with leading a ‘Purposeful’ life. The word sounds odd because the dramas running now a days show the marriage and affairs as the sole purpose of human life. The leads Kashif, Faraz, Gulsher and Shahnaz made devotion their first priority. Do we have dramas like these anymore where people are selfless and all they think about are the ways in which they can utilize their abilities in the best way for the prosperity of their country
I am actually short of words while describing the beauty of this magnificent piece of writing and the strong message it holds for our youngsters. Those who haven’t watched this play yet, please go and watch. It is undoubtedly the best drama in the history of Pakistan television. Those who have already watched it, please share your thoughts.
