God's Own Land
The fondness with which my parents still remember this show had lead me to believe that the book would be all smiles and contented sighs. Salman is the best example of this I can think of. Introduced as a nice, suljha hua young man that is sophisticated but also has no value for money and time and thus spends his allowance on wine, brothels and card games, stops receiving financial support from this father due to his carelessness, he then goes to work for social welfare and during this period he is the very model of compassion, devotion and kind-heartedness. He then leaves this noble cause, marries and proceeds to be the most beghairat aadmi on the planet, recognizes the error of his ways and returns to his social welfare cause. Soney pe suhaga, every man and woman in the book was unfaithful, lecherous and wretched.
