Produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi, the drama serial then worked wonders with its storyline that explores the journey of innocent yet ambitious Mushk, who manages to convince her father to let her pursue a Master’s Degree. However, being a conservative person, her father has his own fear concerning family honour.

Raaz-e-Ulfat has given depth to each character as the story built. Shehzad Sheikh plays Irtiza, a young heartthrob who comes from a well-off background but finds himself drawn to Mushk for her simplicity and innocence. Yumna Zaidi flawlessly assumes the role of Mushk who no longer hesitates in being vocal about her growing feelings for Irtiza. Mushk’s younger sister (Arisha Razi) is astonished to see her elder sister turn hopelessly romantic. Although Amber plays her part as a responsible sister, Irtiza’s sweet words have already occupied Mushk’s heart and soul.

With the little time she has spent in her new university, Mushk has adorn a whole new personality. Komal Aziz plays Mushk’s best friend, Sehba, who is no longer her well-wisher. In very little time, jealousy takes over Sehba’s heart as she discovers Mushk and Irtiza’s newfound relationship.

Written by Maha Malik, the drama serial has two fascinating tales of first love— where one is cherishing the sweetness of new love, another is mourning the loss of his only love. In one scene we have Mushk telling her sister that love has no eyes, only a heart and ears— and telling her how a person in love only listens to what the heart says. On the other hand, we have Ismail, the colleague of Mushk’s father who is grieving the demise of his beloved wife, Gaiti. Directed by Siraj ul Haq, the drama serial really gives an impactful feeling of a funeral— making us all look at Ismail’s pain closely who is left with two children and a mentally-challenged sister, Mohini (Sundus Tariq).

Every scene happens to open a tragic reality. Speaking of Mohini, no one in her family is aware of their neighbour’s ill-intentions towards her. Unable to call him out for his indecent acts, Mohini’s role brings our attention to those people in our lives who can possibly be a threat to our children as cases of sexual harassment and child rape have been making plenty of headlines over the years.

On another hand, the audience felt some regret at Sehba’s condition who is unable to see the true face of Nomi who tricks her with promises of marriage. Sehba is someone who finds it easier to blame her parents for whatever activity she indulges in, even when her parents confront her on finding her under the influence of alcohol.

However, Mushk has a lot of situations to save herself from. Will Mushk realize the true face of Sehba? Are some life-changing circumstances going to separate Mushk and Irtiza? Or will Mushk turn fearless ahead of her family norms to protect her first love?
