Alpha Bravo Charlie was one of the most-watched drama serials of the 90s. The story of the drama revolved around four characters Kashif, Faraz, Gulsher and a female lead Shahnaz. The action-thriller drama had a unique storyline.
The drama depicted the friendship bond of three captains, all of whom belonged to different backgrounds.
The drama also gained popularity for Pakistan Army’s involvement in the Bosnian War and Siachen conflict. The drama also involved comedy and love. The lead character Shahnaz had a close connection with all the three captains- she was a childhood friend of Capt Kashif, the love interest of Capt Faraz but ended up marrying Capt Gulsher.
The three male characters portrayed military officers, overcoming the struggles and challenges faced in the line of the duty. Gulsher, who played a character of a shy, simple and introvert man was most cherished by females. Interestingly, the character of the Capt Kashif was inspired by late Lieutenant Colonel (r) Zafar Abbas Ghazi.
So last year I watched the most hyped TV show in the history of Pakistani TV, alpha Bravo Charlie. I was completely blown away by that.
Heard there is going to be a remake starring Ahad and rest?
Well remakes with Ahad don't end up well. Let's see.

The drama was produced by ISPR and directed by Shoaib Mansoor.
Colonel Khan said the female lead, Shahnaz Khawaja, is in the US but stays in touch with him. “She came to Peshawar and did social work on the Army Public School project,” the actor said.
The charming and sober Captain Faraz from Alpha Bravo Charlie is already playing the father of Ahad Raza Mir in the ongoing ISPR serial Ehd-e-Wafa.
There had always been a penchant for military-based serials and movies among the public with Alpha Bravo Charlie, a directorial venture of Shoaib Mansoor, setting the highest benchmark. Sunehray Din, a prequel of ABC, was the first in the line of military-based serials.
