Ohkay so, this episode of Besharam was great & I enjoyed observation it as a result of it gave North American country associate insight into all the characters & their past. The editing was spot on & it unbroken my interest alive in the episode right from the start until the tip. I must say the director & the editors have teamed up nicely & have given Besharam a treatment that makes it an honest expertise for those who’re observation.
Mishal’s mother Sara has quite a colorful past & she isn’t mortified of it. Seems like it’s as a result of a mother like Sara that Mishal has set bound rules & boundaries for herself as a result of this is often precisely what her mother’s failing marriages & lack of emotional strength has educated her. Mishal is quite young but she is way a lot of sorted in her mind &; incorporates a clear image of what she ought to & what she shouldn’t do. Sara and Tahir are still quite bitter with every different as a result of appears like they each went through an unpleasant divorce & they haven’t overcome the negative feelings they each garnered in their hearts. It was sad that Mishal had to travel through such powerful circumstances at such a young age as a result of her oldsters particularly her mother was immature & Mishal was ne’er her father’s priority. It was amusing to visualize that Tahir thought that just having a tag of being Mishal’s biological father was enough for him to require charge of her future and that’s why he thought she is going to mirthfully follow his orders & hook up with to his kinsman Kashif like associate manageable female offspring. The question that Mishal asked Tahir left him speechless & justly therefore as a result of once he didn’t have enough courtesy in him to take care of Mishal once she required him the foremost, how will he expect that Mishal can settle for his call relating to the most vital factor in her life that too at such a stage of her life wherever she has become freelance and is doing exceptionally well for herself.
Haider’s personality & angle caught the attention of Asfand swayer, who happens to be a capable administrative official. For now Asfand will appear like someone World Health Organization incorporates a ton of respect for the law and order and he doesn’t believe exploiting it simply because he’s at a foothold wherever he will mend the principles and play with the law, not sure if which will modification however without delay this is often precisely the perspective that Haider endorses too. I am undecided what the longer term holds for Haider when he can be a part of Asfand’s party however if their mindsets and policies can match, they will become a formidable pair.
I liked however they showed North American country the relationship that Humna and Qadeer share and what form of a temperament Qadeer has. I am sure the hate Sikandar has for Haider can ne’er permit Humna and Qadeer to possess a standard relationship with one another. The way Qadeer becomes inarticulate in front of her oldsters goes to point out that he’s the kind of someone World Health Organization can ne’er be ready to take a represent Humna and won’t be ready to support her showing emotion and sadly, if things will become rocky once their wedding, it can be Haider World Health Organization will sign on to point out some support to his sister Humna. In Qadeer’s comparison, Humna is quite an narrow-minded person and doesn’t mind holding back her purpose of read particularly once it involves her brother Haider. Humna has been shown defending Haider time and once more in front of Sikandar and Qadeer too however i’m certain, the way Sikandar appearance down upon Haider and his family, things won’t be easier for Humna when she can hook up with to Qadeer. However, the moment Sikandar and Qadeer detected about Haider being in touch with Asfand did leave them hot and bothered somewhat bit, because they ne’er imaginary that Haider, who they suppose of as a git goon, can be conversant in such a strong man like Asfand, so not certain if which will create them modification their angle towards Haider and his family as a result of as way as I will deduce, Sikandar is quite an opportunist, so he may not do something to upset Haider as which will multiply his probabilities of getting into contact with Asfand swayer too.
Ohkay, honestly speaking, I didn’t find the blooming relationship between Mishal and Daniyal a small indefinite amount bit convincing. He shows up out of nowhere, confesses his feelings, shows up the second time and BAM! They both begin chemical analysis. Mishal has been in such a field where obtaining this level of attention from males is a traditional factor and i’m certain that being a high model, Daniyal is not the primary one who has told her that he can’t live without her. I wish they had taken a minimum of one or two of episodes to point out however Daniyal convinced Mishal that the love he had for her was true and however once obtaining convinced properly, Mishal started taking Daniyal seriously. The things Daniyal said concerning Mishal conjointly urged that she incorporates a chance and has forever been quite cautious concerning her image as a result of she may well be a model however she is way a lot of conservative and frozen for that matter therefore to visualize her falling for Daniyal while not an additional a due wasn’t convincing the least bit. Also, the way Mishal told Sara that she wouldn’t do the things she has tired her life goes to point out that Mishal has been quite careful all her life, so to see her falling for Daniyal at once doesn’t create abundant sense to be honest. Yes, she is tired and yes she yearns for a friendship, she also longs for associate emotional support as she has unbroken herself sturdy for therefore a few years however I don’t suppose a woman like Mishal World Health Organization works in such a field wherever she gets to act with all varieties of folks will be therefore naive to not be ready to see through verity intentions of Daniyal.
The note at which the episode finished was quite sheer. I think before putt her foot on the accelerator, she should’ve questioned herself as to what was it about Daniyal that was forcing her to travel to such lengths to prove her love for him. Also, she should’ve done some analysis as to why would a man who says he loves her would place her and her love through such a test? therewith being aforementioned, I must say I enjoyed observation the performances of all the actors throughout the episode. There’s a great chemistry between all the actors and that’s why they create their relationships and their circumstances look thinkable and realistic. Atiqa Odho has added this amusing nevertheless innocent charm to the character of Sara and I believe nobody could’ve done an improved job in a very portrayal of a girl in her late 40’s who’s still hopeful concerning finding the last word love of her life. Saba Qamar as Mishal & Zahid Ahmed as Haider square measure fantastic and I believe nobody could’ve done an improved job than these 2. I must give thanks the director for delivery out the most effective all told the actors and serving to them develop the proper angle needed for the portrayal of all the characters that are appointed to them. I really like however this drama isn’t too unreal and not fully realistic too, it just absolutely falls in between and makes it a ‘drama’ that one likes to watch.

Zun Mureed Episode 1 & 2 Review – Well-Executed
Writer: Amna Mufti
Director: Ahmed Kamran
Produced by: Moomal Entertainment
Schedule: Every Friday at 8pm on HUM
The first two episodes of Zun Mureed laid down solid foundations for whatever is going to happen in the upcoming weeks. The introduction to the characters was detailed as well as clear and both these episodes were fast paced. In both these episodes, the writer and the director’s approach was focused and all the scenes were well-put-together. Although I had my reservations about Nadia Khan since her performance in Aisi Hei Tanhai leaves a lot to be desired but so far her acting has been up to the mark. Omair Rana, Hina Bayat, Shamim Hilali, Aisha Gul, Kashif Mehmood and Khalid Anum always perform well therefore it didn’t come as a surprise at all that they fit perfectly in the roles assigned to them. The performances were natural, the direction was on point and the editing was perfect. I have to admit that the only reason I tuned into this show was because it promised to cover the issue of domestic abuse from a legal perspective and also because it has been written by Amna Mufti which guarantees that the script will be well-researched and meaningful.
The first scene of the opening episode was one of my favorite scenes from both these episodes since it covered a great deal. This scene showed how Tabbasum (Nadia Khan) was struggling alone while her husband Sajjad (Omair Rana) and Bi Jaan’s (Shamim Hilali) son focused entirely on the cricket match. This scene clearly suggested that Bi Jaan was Tabbasum’s responsibility alone although Mariam Apa (Hina Bayat), Bi Jaan’s daughter, claimed to love her mother more than anyone else but there were a lot of times when she wasn’t half as patient as Tabbasum with her mother. The thing I liked about the characters the most was that they were nuanced, while Tabbasum was shown as someone who had a good heart and was dedicated but there were plenty of times when she was shown struggling with her situation. The scenes covering her character were realistic and showed how difficult it was for her to cope with everything yet she didn’t complain because she felt it was her duty to work and to look after the house. Also, while there were times when it seemed like Sajjad couldn’t care less how Tabbasum was coping there were also plenty of scenes in which he acknowledged and appreciated her efforts. The reference to Tabbasum’s share in her late parents assets however suggested that Sajjad is the kind of man who wouldn’t mind living off his wife’s money.
Bi Jaan is an educated woman yet she has a typical mindset. Even after everything Tabbasum did for Bi Jaan, she didn’t get any acknowledgement, something which was shown creatively through the scene in which Bi Jaan writes Mariam and Sajjad’s name alone. Also, just like any other controlling mother in law, Bi Jaan cannot see her son spending quality time with his wife and terms him as zun mureed, even though her own son in law was shown doing exactly what his wife expected from him.
The first episode in particular also showed how Fari, Tabbasum’s sister, was treated by her bhabhi and how things were in their brother’s (Khalid Mehmood) house. The news about Women Protection Bill got different kind of reactions from both these houses and Tabbasum in particular kept on asserting that such laws were made for violent men in low income households. She couldn’t imagine at this point that her husband would some day turn into such a man.
Overall, these two episodes were engaging and executed flawlessly. Although these episodes didn’t have anything brand new to offer but they weren’t clichéd either. I felt an instant connection with all the characters because of the way they were introduced. The script has the kind of clarity that doesn’t leave any questions in your mind and the director has given this script the right kind of treatment.
Pukaar Episode 5 Review – Tragic!
Ohkay so, this episode of Pukaar was quite depressing which means the emotions were conveyed perfectly. This entire drama week for me was so heavy, first Aairah’s husband died in Khudgarz, then Tabeer’s husband died in Tabeer & now Samra’s husband died in Pukaar, tauba, talk about monotony, anyways!
Well, Fahad couldn’t win the battle for his life & passed away. The news of his death was obviously tragic & shook every single person associated with him. Samra lost the love of her life, Tashfeen & her husband lost their only son. Samra’s parents obviously couldn’t see their only child suffering that too when she deems herself guilty.
The moment Fahad’s father saw Samra, he made sure to remind her that it was because of her that Fahad didn’t go to the village & now he was fighting for his life. Well, he passed away & first half of the episode was covered in the flashbacks. Samra’s father did try to make a point that because Sultan got Fahad involved in the politics, he directed undue attention towards his son, but then again, why would Sultan pay heed to what Samra’s father said because he was too busy holding Samra responsible for everything!
Well, looks like Fahad’s Daadi is going to take revenge from Samra because Fahad’s family unanimously thinks that Samra is the reason why Fahad died, therefore they will make sure to torture her because other than that, they had no reason to keep Samra at their house as it was way too evident that they weren’t sympathizing with Samra to begin with!
Samra’s parents tried their best to take her with them but Samra wanted to be left alone in Fahad’s house. Poor thing doesn’t know what she will be faced with!
Well, honestly speaking, I wish everyone’s makeup apart from Yumna had been a bit realistic because all the characters; Daadi, Tashfeen & Zamani looked too glamorous to be mourning the death of a family member. I must say Zamani is quite annoying, obviously she is doing what usually servants do to stay in the good books of their masters but then again, the actress playing her role & her overall get up is such an eyesore. I wish we get to see less of her in the upcoming episodes which seems highly unlikely but still we can hope for the best. Yumna Zaidi was spot on with her acting & she succeeded in conveying Samra’s pain. I must say the OST is really nice & it helped in conveying the overall sadness that everyone was going through after losing Fahad. Anyways, please share your thoughts about this episode of Pukaar.
Aangan Episode 18 Review – Hilarious!
Ohkay so, like I always say, what an amazing episode of Aangan. Seriously, Kudos to Faiza Iftikhar & the entire team for painting such a realistic & perfect picture of a typical desi wedding which is full of so many hiccups & people who come with their own agendas. I just don’t remember watching a Pakistani drama in such a long time which made me laugh so much & to be honest, Aangan happens to be one such drama that makes me happy. What a perfect entertainment!
So, Zoya Aqdas wedding was in full bloom with the Mehandi function. Shafiq actually came to attend the wedding & surprise everyone but then again, Abba Jee gave him a cold shoulder. Shafiq turned out to be a typical overseas returned desi who completely forgot growing up in this very environment because now he saw the entire wedding & the trouble of arranging it as a nuisance. Shafiq’s constant reminders of ‘mai isi liye Pakistan nahi ata’ were so funny. In stead of using this time to reconnect with his family & curbing his differences with Abba Jee’s, Shafiq continued to play the victim as if he didn’t hurt Abba Jee & he was being wrong in not treating Shafiq with the affection that he was entitled to!
So, Allaudin once again found a reason to be upset about, which was his matching Kurta with Abba Jee. Allaudin just can not come to terms with the fact that he is one of the elders of the family, that he is way too older than Aqdas, the chota damaad of the family & that is why he was keen on wearing that Green Kurta which the youngsters were wearing. I am sure if they had given him the Green Kurta, he would’ve complained that he was being put on the same pedestal as the bachas of the family, lol. Aalu & his issues!
Well, Faseeha came with her Jethani & Nand & they proved that they were those typical aunties who are avoided by every single person of the family because they find problem with every little thing & create issues over tissues. As if bickering with each other wasn’t enough that they started dragging the girls who were singing songs & also raised question over Zaitoon, Anila & Zoya’s age.
Well, Abba Jee’s cousin & childhood friend Bilqees made an apperance too. It seems Abba Jee has a soft corner for Billo that is why he not only made sure to invite her but also went out of his way to make her feel at home by taking care of her comfort. I loved the late night session that Abba Jee & Bilqees had, it was like Billo was the part of Abba Jee’s childhood that wasn’t lost. The way they both recalled old days & all the activities that they used to do was so cute but something that was even better was Zaitoon’s restlessness because she was clearly & rationally jealous. Bilqees’s fight with Aqdas’s aunts was also so very funny, it was like she knew how they had to be responded whereas everyone else on Zoya’s side apart from Anila was being mindful of the fact that they were larki walay so they had to tolerate everything. ‘Kissay di assi Majj churai hai’ has to be my favorite dialogue of this drama so far, lol!!!!
I loved this episode just so much. It is so amazing how watching this wedding takes you down the memory lane & makes you think about the things you might have seen or heard while attending your family weddings too. The way Anila reminded Rubina that she was wearing an old dress was also something that often turns out to be a conversation starter at desi weddings where everyone keenly remembers everyone else’s formal dresses.
I think I now desperately want to see a change in the equation that Zahid & Rubina share, something more, something new, something different please. Oh well, who would’ve thought that Sajjad will tackle Allaudin so intelligently, he just knew that Allu was trying to get some scoop on personal family matter therefore he told him to arrange someone who could take care of dholki, something that would distract him at least for the moment. Asim & Sajjad’s reactions were priceless when they knew they had taken care of Allu the best way possible, lol. I must say, I felt some sort of pity when Anila kept on lying to Allaudin to boost his ego & he immediately agreed to be at the wedding on time because Anila said what he wanted to hear. Allaudin is someone who just wants to be the center of attention, he likes to be praised even for the things he doesn’t do & since this is what Anila did, he seemed happy to be taking a part in Zoya’s wedding.
I must say, the way Faiza Iftikhar has etched out all these characters is amazing. Everyone has a unique but relatable personality & to keep them true to themselves till this stage of the drama is commendable. From Abba Jee to Shaina, every single one of them contributes & makes this drama complete. The way all these actors deliver the dialogues with so much of ease & effortlessness goes to show how they have owned these characters & are literally living them. I must say all the ladies looked so lovely with those beautiful dresses & heavy jewellery. Can’t wait to see more. Please share your thoughts about this hilarious episode of Aangan.
Tabeer Episode 3 – Review!
Ohkay so, this episode of Tabeer, though dramatic was really nice. Even though the story has been quite simple & predictable but it does look like the side characters are going to add that much needed flavour in this drama.
So, Tabeer found out about Yasir & her life turned upside down. Tabeer was someone who couldn’t even see Yasir down with a mere fever so for her to endure the painful news of Yasir’s passing was beyond imagination.
Fawad’s mother continued to spew venom against Yasir because she is so self-centered to think beyond herself & even for once show consideration about someone else. Fawad was also deeply affected by Yasir’s demise that is why he not only went to attend the funeral, but also tried to help his family financially.
Yasir’s first cousin Ajju happens to be quite a manipulative person that is why he lied to Fawad & also kept half of the amount he gave for the rituals. I actually thought Ajju’s brother would be a decebt person but even he kept half of the remaining amount as well. I don’t know why but I found that scene emotionally very disturbing when Yasir’s grandmother accepted that measly amount with so much of gratitude, my heart broke for her because while she was mourning the death of her grandson, she had no idea that there were vultures around her who were literally taking advantage of Yasir even after his death!
Ajju & his brother are obviously irresponsible beings who don’t really know how to fend for themselves, therefore they came up with a plan that they’d start living at Yasir’s house, which means they will create more issues for Tabeer & Daadi.
On the other hand, Zarnish contacted Sana, a heart-broken depressed soul who obviously has been rejected by Fawad that is why I think Zarnish contacted her to speak to her. I think Zarnish will request Sana to take care of Fawad after she is no more but then that place will be taken by Tabeer & Sana will be left heart broken once again.
This episode of Tabeer was definitely good. The preview suggested that the trials in the life of Tabeer are far from being over. With Daadi’s demise, Tabeer will be left all alone & not sure how she will be able to deal with Ajju & his family. Looking forward to the next episode. Please share your thoughts.
