For the past few years, the prime focus of our dramas has been miseries of women and the problems they face in our society but we hardly give importance to issues our men faced while dealing with stereotype mentality.

Qasim poetic monologue in the last episode of Saji Gul’s O Rangreza is actually an eye opener for us as it introduces us to the anxiety a man faces in his life. He is forced to bottle up his feelings and is not allowed to ask for help.

In our society, there is a lot of pressure on males to stay strong whatever happens to them – and while holding back their tears most of the time they are fighting with themselves which leaves devastating impacts on their personality.

Saji Gul’s poem, ‘Lekin mujhko rona nahin hai’ shows a pressure a man feels while he is expected to stay strong in tough times. In O Rangreza, Qasim was shown as a sensitive creature. He was quite different from other men in his surroundings but the societal pressure forced him to be like others while sabotaging his inner confidence.

ab tak man se bacha hun per

rait ki kachee gharee ki ghantee 

meray tan ko goondh rahee hai… 

ab mein thokar khaun ga toa…

mujhko dilaasa denay walay…

meray ghamon pe tanz kasein ge…

meri siski ghhut jaye gi

mujh per meray dost hansein ge…

The actor, Bilal Abbas Khan, while talking about his role in O Rangreza said that he had learnt a lot from it.

“This is it – it’s time to bid farewell to Qasim. I must say I got really attached to the character – the way he spoke, how humble and kind he was. To become Qasim was just an extraordinary experience. By far, it is my most favourite character that I’ve ever done. I learned a lot from him. I’ve learned that you should never forget your family values and never be afraid to stand up for what’s right and always be kind to others. Treat others how you would want to be treated. Qasim has gone and got his happy ending but he’ll always be a part of me. To Qasim, To us, to O Rangreza”, the actor said in a special Facebook status.
