Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam (TV Series) - Intro
Women have often been celebrated for being the epitome of patience, sacrifice, endurance and more. After critically acclaimed Asim Abbasi helmed Churails, Zee5 is all set to break this stereotype and unearth their unapologetic side of the women in the upcoming original Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam.
A desi noir anthology, Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam is directed by critically acclaimed British Indian director Meenu Gaur. The series features an eclectic cast comprising Ahsan Khan, Osman Khalid Butt, Sheheryar Munawar, Saleem Mairaj, Samiya Mumtaz, Sanam Saeed, Sarwat Gilani, Mehar Bano, Faiza Gillani, Beo Raana Zafar and Eman Suleman.
The upcoming series is a compilation of six stories of seven women who wrestle back control and redefine the word femme fatale.
Written by Farjad Nabi and Gaur, Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam is set in the timeless lanes of Androon Sheher – a mythical neighbourhood and showcases stories of love, lust, power, and redemption woven in a web of betrayal, angst, and revenge.
Each story from the anthology depicts the fearlessness of women and their determination to avenge deceit. At the core of the stories are mystery, suspense, intrigue with twist endings.
Speaking of her recent offering, Gaur said, “This idea for the show was like an outpouring for me and it’s no surprise that the stories here are about all that which surges within us as women – love, passion, ambition, conviction, rage, revenge, and revolution.
With the dominance of a male-centric gaze especially in the noir genre, I was keen to explore a new interpretation, one which is told from the perspective of the much-maligned femme fatale (qatil haseena) characters. It is an attempt to correct the sexism of film noir and try our hands at feminist noir.”
Co-writer Nabi also commented, “Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam waves goodbye to the victim woman as seven fatales get their way through methods that are unexpected, sometimes horrifying, but always liberating.
I am glad this show will be premiering on the Zee5 platform that focuses on bringing diverse and significant stories for the global audience.”
