The Sanam Baloch and Ali Rehman starrer Khaas began last night with an interesting storyline and noteworthy performances from the cast. The storyline surrounding love was picked up from the first episode as the characters were introduced. Written by Sarwat Nazir. And directed by Danish Nawaz, the direction seems fine and up to the mark from the very first episode. From the promos, we knew it was a love triangle and that the lead characters are going to suffer in love and cry along. The first episode, hence, set the stage for the beginning of the story and introduced all the characters in a convincing manner. The interweaving storylines make the plot more interesting.
The drama features the beautiful Sanam Baloch as Saba, who is introduced as a strong and confident girl. She comes from a happy family with loving parents and has two sisters. She is currently studying, where Ammar (Ali Rehman Khan) sees her and develops an attraction towards her. Ali Rehman Khan appears as the second lead of Khaas shown as a Casanova and a heartthrob. The third actor is Haroon Shahid as Fakhir who is friends with Ammar and appears as an innocent and simple guy, who respects women and is also shown rekindling a childhood memory with Saba.
This is the first time we see Sanam Baloch and Ali Rehman together. The couple's on-screen look is pretty adorable, Sanam Baloch has proven her mettle for a very long time now, and Ali Rehman Khan compliments her well, after his success in Diyar-e-Dil and Main Khayaal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka. The story seems very gripping from the very first episode, and we would want to see more of them in future too.
So far, it looks like a love triangle has already started brewing between Ammar, Saba, and Fakhir. Till now, the drama looks promising and can deliver with an ensemble cast and good scripting.
The pairing is fresh and it will be interesting to watch what the duo has to offer and what kind of role Haroon Shahid will be playing as Fakhir. Although we cannot say that the drama has a unique storyline or is free from clichés, it is something to look forward to if you are looking for a light story with some decent performances.
