    Loose Talk: Moin Akhter & Anwer Maqsood

    Any other fan of Loose Talk on PP?

    The two legends Moin Akhter & Anwer Maqsood would sit together and talk about various social issues of our society. The idea behind Loose Talk was to educated people in a humorous way that just made the entire show incredible. There are 400+ episodes of Loose Talk and Moin appeared in a different character every time and made it look like he was made for this character.

    Anwer Maqsood did all the writing and hosted the show, Moin appeared as a different guest every time.






    Javed Jaffrey also appeared in a few episodes of the show as a guest when cricket special show was done during famous Indian tour of Pakistan in Musharraf Govt.

    They regularly made fun of dictator Musharraf in the show but Musharraf himself was a fan of Moin.

    Fantastic show. Moin Akhtar and Anwar Masood combo cannot be matched by anyone in the Pakistani industry.

    Moin Akhtar was on a different level, could make jokes without having to dive too much into lewdness, also had a more of a social message. Sadly after his demise tharki "comedy" really took off under Umar Sharif (whom Moin kept on the straight in the few comedy stage shows/productions he was in with).

    Urdu stage shows weren't that low brow before but they got a lot of their material from Punjabi shows thereafter. Mostly double entendres and cheap laughs.

    Umar Sharif at the end of his career with all those lame jokes and the current generation of comedians leading urdu theater totally destroyed the legacy.

    Urdu Theater and PTV both peaked together to see that golden era and now both are going through the fall

    I like his imitation of Afghan's and Indian Muslim's. They are totally on the mark as to how those people act

    Not the most politically correct (it was a different time) but the episode with Moin Akhtar as Bangladeshi cricketer had me in fits.

    Love it, and Love him. May he rest in peace. He's become popular and has gone viral in India for his "abey saale" in the video you posted above.

    To add to the ones above, I also loved his impersonation of an overseas Pakistani cab driver.

    Cannot understand the hype. It used to air on TV when I was a kid and I always found it pretty lame. Anwar Maqsood with his boring, uninterested demeanour made it unbearable to watch.

    I agree with you! Boring material. I do not understand the hype!

    Partly agree with the posters above. It is still a good program but a bit overrated. And I am saying this as a big fan of both Moin Akhtar and Anwer Maqsood. Loose talk is a shadow of the truly great comedy shows produced by the duo in the 80s and 90s like studio dhai and ponay teen. The problem for me is that as the first such show on a private channel Anwer Maqsood seems to be under pressure to produce a new episode

    * a new episode every week with a new character for 400 weeks rather than 13 episodes like old ptv shows. It is hard to maintain quality over such a long period even for someone like Anwer Maqsood and so the comedy and wit is not as crisp and has more placeholder lines just to make up the time of the episode.

    This has been making the rounds on twitter and my parents are fans of his but I've never enjoyed Pakistani comedy, maybe I'm just too American.
