Jammu: In order to showcase the life and culture of Jammu and Kashmir, the Kashir Channel of Doordarshan is all set to telecast weekly Urdu drama serial “‘Kali Barf’,” by Mushtaq Kak for thirteen weeks from tomorrow.
‘Kali Barf’ is the saga of the essence of Kashmiriyat, the indomitable Kashmiri diaspora, blessed with eternal faith in humanity and human values. In the stream of their pain and suffering blooms the lotus of hope. In Kashmiri language ‘Kali Barf’ (Kruhun Sheen) means the impossible, that which can never happen. The Serial presents the contemporary reality and establishes that the situation is not totally devoid of possibilities; the snow has not turned black yet. This message is conveyed through the families of Pandit Wakhloo (Tatha ji) and Dr Naseer-ud-Din Dar, who are a part of displaced Kashmiris, banished from their homeland. But a string force of trust and hope, personified in the protagonist Sharika works as a sheet anchor against all odds. The Serial ends on this very positive note –snow has not turned black yet.
The Serial has been produced and directed by well known theatre, television and film personality Mushtak Kak. Written by well known writer Meera Kant, the Serial was earlier produced as a play at Shriram Centre of Performing Arts, New Delhi and directed by Mushtaq Kak, the then Artistic Director of the Centre. Another play, earlier directed by Mushtaq Kak for theatre and later adapted for television by him was Moti Lal Kemmu’s ‘Natak Truch’. Mushtaq has also done commendable work for television including six tele-films in Indian Classics category in Dogri language. Kak has also acted in films like ‘Hijack’, ‘Sikandar’ ‘I am Megha’, Canadian film ‘Amal’ and Mausam. He is already shooting for two forthcoming films with Kamal Hasan and Anurag Kashyap.
It is because of the initiative of Director, Jammu Doordarshan Shabbir Mujahid that popular and meaningful television programmes telecast on DD Kashir and other Channels of Doordarshan are being aired from Jammu Doordarshan. The Director of Cinematography of the Serial is Sanjay Kumar (Sanju). The Music Director is Bhupinder Singh Jamwal and the songs have been composed by Kuldip Sapru.
