The fact that DeS aired in the same year as Hamsafar made a huge difference of course but even then the actors, the writer and the director deserved more recognition for their work than they got.

Nadia Jamil was flawless as the confused, bitter and depressed Shandana. Drama Of The Week:
In my opinion both these men deserved another chance and if their women decided to give them that chance then they did nothing wrong. There is nothing wrong with it if people let their egos take a backseat in order to save a relationship if the person they are doing it for deserves it. The fact that DeS aired in the same year as Hamsafar made a huge difference of course but even then the actors, the writer and the director deserved more recognition for their work than they got. She feels very passionately about Pakistani dramas and loves discussing them to detail. It was as effective the second time as it was the first time I watched it. Muhammad Ahmed made this character memorable by breathing life in to it.
A big thanks to Umera Ahmed for some of the most heart-warming, soul-stirring and effective dialogues.
The most touching scenes of the entire play had to be the one between Durr-e-Shahwar and her father. Muhammad Ahmed made this character memorable by breathing life in to it.

They were not abusers like Sikandar in Kankarthey did not marry the first woman they got close to after their wife walked out of the door Adeel in DeM and Shaam in Shukk and they most certainly did not cheat on their wives Salman in SeZ and Hammad in Mirat-ul-Uroos. The play shows durre-shahwar daughters look up to their fathers.
The play is fast paced, beautifully written and directed. Some of the viewers thought that DeS was regressive because it was asking women to compromise alone while the men had no such responsibility.
The background music is haunting and mesmerizing; it fully gels in with every situation. Wpi because it had to one of crama most inspiring.
We are not as patient as our parents were and we also complain a lot durr-e-shxhwar than they used to. In my opinion Durr-e-Shahwar is not just the story of two generations but it is actually the story of three generations; Sophie was also a very important durr–eshahwar of the play.
Shahwar had her father to guide her in the right direction and Shahwar does the same for her daughter. Durr-e-Shahwar is one of those rare plays that completely win you over right from the first episode. Mansoor and Haider both were not able to tackle with the ups and downs of early years of marriage tactfully other than that both of them loved their wives and were good human beings. When Durr-e-Shahwar and Mansoor had compatibility issues and communication problems during the early years of their marriage, they made sure that Shandana knew nothing about the problems between them.
The best aspect of this play is that women and men from the older generation can connect to Shahwar and Mansoor and those of the new generation durre-shahwar see a reflection of their own selves in Shandana and Haider.
The script was written in such a way that it makes compromising seem like a virtue which does pay off after a while. Even at the time it was on air, it was never promoted as much as Hamsafar was.
You cannot watch it without crying buckets of tears. There were others who thought that DeS was targeting working women. Shandana tries to make him realize that he needs to spend more time with his family but Haider shuts her out every time. Saba Faisal was equally wonderful as the controlling mother and mother in law. It was as effective the second time as it was the first time I watched it.

Haider is insecure, he thinks his wife wants to dominate him and because of this insecurity he feels that he does not need to do anything to make their relationship better.
Durr-e-Shahwar stayed with me for a very long time and is one of those very few plays which I watched again without forwarding a single scene. In my opinion both these men deserved another chance and if their women decided to give them that chance then they did nothing wrong. Noman Ijaz nailed his role as Haider.
