Geo TV has recently launched a drama serial called Heer. It is the story of gaon ki gori. The twist is that this gori isn't your usual victimized soul. She is very independent in her thoughts and actions, and is a progressive girl at heart.
The story catches pace when Heer opens a small handicraft centre with the help of an NGO worker Gettee Aara and starts a mission to convince the girls to be independent and stand on their feet.
Thus, slowly the girls of the village get convinced and start learning the craft and become financially independent. Some of the men in the village takes Heer’s actions as a revolt and think this will off balance the status quo. They make life very tough for her, and start plotting against her. In order to save her life Heer escapes, leaving her true love behind, Ibrahim, nephew of the Chaudhry.
City life has its own challenges. Heer opens the centre at Gettee’s place and tries to adjust to the fast paced life of the city. She wants to go back but cannot. Eventually, Chaudary dies leaving Paiji to take advantage of the situation and marries Ibrahim to Naureen (who is the daughter of Chaudhry).
Meanwhile, Aabis, son of Gettee Ara, falls in love with Heer, he wants her to stay back and therefore keeps Ibrahim’s marriage a secret.
Heer goes back to village and comes to know about the marriage and is devastated. The question now is what will be Heer’s fate? Will she ever get her love back and get rewarded for the sacrifices she made?
Directed by Syed Ramish Rizvi, Heer's cast includes Madiha Imam, Yasir Ali kHan, Asad Sidiqui, Seemi Pasha, Bigul Hussain, Jawed Jamal, Zaheen Tahira, Saim Ali, Dania , and Aslam Shaikh. The drama serial is co-written by Mansoor Saeed and Zafar Elahi.
