Slogan - - Cover Story -

The very tal­ented scriptwriter, tele­vi­sion host, satirist and painter An­war Maq­sood is a rare artiste whom Pak­istan is and should be very proud of. Amongst his many tal­ents, I am per­son­ally a great ad­mirer of his wit. His abil­ity to high­light and present the is­sues of life, be they so­cial or po­lit­i­cal, in satire is his forte. His abil­ity to present the un­com­fort­able truth in a light and hu­mor­ous man­ner makes him unique and re­mark­able, so whether it was 50/50, Show Time, Aan­gan Tehra, Loose Talk, Pawney 14 Au­gust, Sawa 14 Au­gust, he is un­par­al­leled.

I par­tic­u­larly en­joyed his Loose Talk se­ries with the Late Moin Akhtar, and the best part is that I used to watch it with my mother who would thoroughly en­joy it too. I mar­vel at his ge­nius, the thought process be­hind the con­tent, the ef­fec­tive use of lan­guage within the pa­ram­e­ters of our cul­ture and so­ci­ety and cen­sor­ship, YET he de­liv­ers on point ev­ery time. He makes you laugh at re­al­ity while you un­wind but, at the same time, it leaves you with some­thing to think about.
