The illustrious playwright Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has indeed become a hugely celebrated name following the success of Mere Paas Tum Ho and following his controversial interviews! The writer has acquired a celebrity status, becoming perhaps the only person in fraternity with an equal number of haters and admirers!
However, the writer’s profound, poetic and impactful dialogues truly and undeniably distinguish him among others as a notable writer. Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has established himself as a leading writer of recent times as most of his recent projects have become a commercial success including drama serial Mere Paas Tum Ho and super-hit film Punjab Nahi Jaungi.
His latest drama serial Mere Paas Tum Ho in particular has outperformed all of his previous projects. Mere Paas Tum Ho’s staggering performance will be remembered for a long time. The rave hit drama has roped in a whopping 3 crore on Saturday and Sunday alone. It raked in a record number of advance sales and took an earth shattering start leaving behind major films of Pakistan. Mere Paas Tum Ho raked in 2 crore from Punjab alone and 1 crore from the rest of the Pakistan. The drama touched a figure of 3 crore and left the trade pleasantly surprised!

Mere Paas Tum Ho will retain opening records to its credit for a long time! The drama starred adored actors Humayun Saeed, Ayeza Khan, Adnan Siddiqui and Hira Mani among others. It was helmed by the Jawani Phir Nahi Ani director Nadeem Baig.
In contrast, Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s latest film Kaaf Kangana also startled people but for all the wrong reasons. Kaaf Kangana starred Sami Khan and Eshal Fayyaz in lead roles and it was directed by the writer himself. Kaaf Kangana’s performance was truly embarrassing!
In stark comparison with Mere Paas Tum Ho, Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s Kaaf Kangana opened with 1.9 million on Friday, it raked in 2 million on Saturday and added another 1.8 million on Sunday. The film registered an opening weekend of only 5.7 million.
The comparison between Mere Paas Tum Ho’s 3 crore and Kaaf Kangana’s 57 lac opening weekend is truly embarrassing. Both the projects were penned by the same writer but they registered polar opposite performances!
How Mere Paas Tum Ho Could Have Ended Better? -By Omair Alavi
Drama and film making requires the collaborative art of many individuals. The team of Mere Paas Tum Ho worked like a charm together! Humayun Saeed’s contribution as an actor and a producer was surely commendable, alongside Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s writing and Nedeem Baig’s direction. This team has previously worked together in other successful projects such as Pyaray Afzal and Punjab Nahi Jaungi together. After raking in so much success on several projects together, teams tend to break up as well. However, we certainly hope this power team will never break and that they are able to manifold their impact in their upcoming project London Nahi Jaunga, together!
