For now the story, written by Mansoor Ahmed Khan, is a very basic one. Babban Khala Ki Betiyan have hundreds of dreams, all of which might need miracles to be fulfilled.

The once happy home, is broken and smiles turn to tears.

Syed Atif Hussain has directed Babban Khala Ki Betiyan with an ease which is apparent in each episode. Perhaps its the support of a veteran cast that each episode up till now has been thoroughly engaging.
