‘Aangan Tehra’ aired on PTV in the late 1980s. The show starred some of Pakistan’s best; Bushra Ansari, Shakeel, Arshad Mehmood and Salim Nasir. The story is set in a typical muhalla and follows the stories of Mehboob Ahmed, his wife Jahan Ara Begum and their kaam wala Akbar.
The other muhallay daar feature in the play, but the main dynamic of this comedy follows Mehboob Ahmed and his household. Each character in this show is very well fleshed out and depicts interesting stereotypes within our society; the ‘funny’ husband, the wife who doesn’t find the mian funny, the intrusive neighbor and aunty who’s definitely ‘interested’ in an uncle from the muhalla.
