GCU Dramatics Club stages spellbinding - Aik Biwi ka Sawal Hai Baba

The Dramatics Club at Government College University Lahore (GCUDC) recently brought the vibrant 70s back to life with their four-day performance of "Aik Biwi ka Sawal Hai Baba," a romantic comedy musical that enthralled audiences with its humor, love, and nostalgia. Directed by Mr. Umer Darr and with the creative oversight of Mr. Zohaib Zafar Naqvi, the show paid tribute to Kamal Ahmad Rizvi, a celebrated Urdu dramatist, director, and actor.
This two-hour play was a lively journey back to the 70s, blending romance, humor, and music to charm its viewers. The production's meticulous attention to set design, sound, and music aimed to transport the audience back in time, creating a seamless and engaging theatrical experience.
Leading the talented cast was Ahmad Mughal as Raizy, with notable performances by Anumta Shoukat, Saira Iftikhar, and Tania Chiara, the latter serving as the current President of the GCU Dramatics Club. Not only did Chiara shine on stage, but her choreography skills also added a dynamic layer to the production.
Director Mr. Umer Darr reflected on the staging's success, stating, "Our goal was to spread joy and evoke nostalgia while showcasing our young performers' remarkable talent." The play's detailed consideration for props, stage design, makeup, and costumes contributed to a rich and captivating audience experience.
"Aik Biwi ka Sawal Hai Baba" has once again proven the universal appeal of comedy, demonstrating its power to bring people together and uplift spirits. The Government College University Lahore's Dramatics Club remains committed to promoting the theatrical arts and providing a stage for emerging talent, securing this production's place as a memorable event.
Those who missed this harmonious blend of laughter, romance, and music missed a showcase of the lasting impact of theater to inspire and entertain.
Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ahmad Adnan praised the GCU Lahore Dramatics Club's rendition of "Aik Biwi ka Sawal Hai Baba," underscoring theater's educational and societal importance. He remarked, "Theater is more than just entertainment; it educates, mirrors society, and fosters social change.

I am proud of our Dramatics Club for delivering such a high-caliber performance, which not only displays our students' talents but also accentuates the significance of theater in fostering creativity and critical thinking."
