Jo Bichar Gaye features Maya Ali (Sonia) and Wahaj Ali (Roomi) alongside Talha Chahour and Nadia Jamil as the main characters. Based on genuine events, the historical drama appears to be set during the 1971 war, with clashes leading to Dhaka’s collapse. Maya Ali plays the role of a Pakistani student studying at Dhaka University. She speaks for Pakistan. Whereas, Wahaj plays the role of a Bengali student activist. With animosity on both sides, our main characters will find themselves in the midst of a struggle, each fighting for a cause they believe in, albeit they may not always be on the right side of history. Additionally, Maya Ali appears to be a performer from East Pakistan who opposes the revolution and is seen accusing a man of being a murderer for instigating the revolt in one scene.
The cinematography and the overall 1971 mood are the best aspects. Nadia Jamil, who plays Maya Ali’s mother, maintains a level of brilliance throughout the first episode.
