In his play, Hasan has successfully portrayed a journey of eight decades into a theatre play with his pen. Executed by director Dawar Mehmood, the theatre performance uses about 10 set changes making it into a live film-like experience.

For Mehmood, who loves to take up challenges, this play was nothing short of a technical havoc if gone wrong. However, he has perfected the script making the play magical for his viewers. With his claim to fame, flagship product Aangan Terha, Mehmood states that Hua Kuch Youn falls in the same genre.

The play chronicles the events of Partition and history, merging the audience in a wonderful journey of nostalgia that is bound to get tears in every eye.
