The second installment of the trilogy that began with Sang-e-Mah Mah is the Pakistani television series Sang-e-Mah. It is written by Mustafa Afridi, produced by Momina Duraid under her production company MD Productions, directed by Saife Hassan, and has a major plot thread that draws inspiration from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The mysteries that surface when young Hilmand chooses to exact revenge on those who killed his father are the central focus of the series.
The narrative takes place in the made-up town of “Laspiraan.” Typically, Hilmand (Atif Aslam) visits his father Nasrullah Khan’s tomb. Because Hilmand believes Haji Marjaan Khan (Nauman Ijaz) killed Nasrullah so that Hilmand’s mother Zarsanga (Samiya Mumtaz) could marry him, Hilmand wants to exact revenge on Marjaan. Hikmat (Zaviyar Nauman Ijaz), the half-brother of Hilmand and the son of Zarsanga and Marjaan, is in love with his cousin Gul Meena (Hania Amir), who happens to be Zarsanga’s sister Zarghuna’s daughter (Sania Saeed).
Based on William Shakespeare’s Prince Hamlet, he is a strong-willed man who lives in a cemetery with his friends and their sole goal being retaliation for his father’s murder.
