On Nov 18, 2021, ZEE5 Global launched the trailer of ZEE Original ” Qatil Hassenaon Ke Naam”
Directed by critically acclaimed British-Indian director Meenu Gaur, Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam is a six-part anthology series featuring seven women. The series boasts of an eclectic ensemble cast including Sanam Saeed, Sarwat Gilani, Samiya Mumtaz, Faiza Gillani, Beo Raana Zafar, Eman Suleman, Saleem Mairaj, Ahsan Khan, Osman Khalid Butt and Sheheryar Munawar.
The series is written by Farjad Nabi and Meenu Gaur, the series shows stories of seven women in six stories who go through deceit, rejections and being used and thrown in waste bin by the men in our society. These events turn them into a different version of femme fatale. The theme of trailer is intriguing and mysterious which left us curious to watch the show.
Meenu claims that “QHKN is a tribute/ ode to all qatil haseenas, vamps, femme fatales, whatever you name them. The stories of these women who are labelled as “bad women” are usually told from a man’s perspective. So, there has never been a story that showed why a woman turned hostile. QHKN has mystery, suspense, drama, plot twists; it’s a desi noir which has a female voice over to narrate the story,” she said, adding, “I was always fascinated by noir but you cannot cut and paste the same western formula here. Hence, I’ve translated the genre for the series to make it more desi.”
“QHKN is an anthology; every story has a thematic progression and they connected with a single thread questioning what would lead a woman to kill or fight?” Meenu shared.
This suspenseful desi noir series is set to launch on 10th December globally on ZEE5.
