The first poster of ‘Barzakh’ unveiled
‘Barzakh’ is a family drama centered around an elderly man’s quest for love, ‘Barzakh’ explores intergenerational trauma between fathers and sons. The narrative is framed within a fantastical world of supernatural beings and otherworldly events that reveal the chasms between life, death, and rebirth.
Fawad Khan portrays the role of a single parent, who is charming but at the same time filled with a lot of guilt for something that he has lost. Elated at ‘Barzakh’ making the Series Mania cut, Fawad said: “Coinciding with our Series Mania premiere, our poster that we now reveal to the world offers an early glimpse into what can be expected from the series – abstract beauty and ambiguity that reflects the complexities in navigating human relationships in a post-modern world.”

Talking about ‘Barzakh’ and the poster, Asim said: “Love and memory are both central thematic components of ‘Barzakh’. We wanted a visual that represented love in its eternal manifestation, but, which like memory, also had a fleeting, ephemeral quality about – like time slipping by and evaporating around us, leaving behind a distant, but vivid, memory of the moment it all began.”
