Dar Si Jati Hei Sila Episode 20 Review – Relevant!

This was another brilliant episode of Dar Si Jati Hei Sila. Nadia’s character is turning out to be one of the most significant characters in this drama for many reasons. Apart from giving a different perspective to everything, she also adds some lighthearted moment to a drama which is essentially dark. Nadia’s “billi se daro gay tu wo sher ban jaye gi.” dialogue aptly narrowed down the reason why Bari Apa controls everyone and everything Noor Manzil. This dialogue wasn’t only true for Bari Apa but also for Joi. The only reason why a man like Joi has been getting away with so much is that he has successfully managed to intimidate Sadia and Sila. Joi and Sadia’s conversation tonight also suggested that Sadia does whatever it takes to please Joi because that is the only way to save Sila. He often asks about Sila whenever she doesn’t do what he says – it seems like that is his way of threatening Sadia. Kiran Haq owns her role completely and never fails to impress. Nauman Ijaz has been beyond exceptional as Joi throughout and Saman Ansari is doing complete justice to a really difficult role. Every scene of this drama carries weight and is executed superbly.

In this episode Raheel was more eager than ever to find out what exactly was going on. He is an intelligent man who can tell that there is more to this especially because of the way Sadia is reacting to this entire situation. Sila’s dialogues in this episode when she told Raheel and Zaini what she went through and how she felt were brilliantly written. Yumna Zaidi’s remarkable performance and the way Zaini and Raheel’s reactions were covered made this scene impactful. Sila is a victim but like many other victims like her she feels that she is responsible for what happened to her because she couldn’t stop her abuser. She also feels this way because she constantly hears what a nice person Joi is and how flawed she is. This scene was extremely touching and it highlighted the plight of a victim perfectly.

Sadia conversation with Sila this time too revolved around convincing her to stay quiet since she really believes herself that it is the only way they will be “safe”. The biggest reason for this is that Hatim is Joi’s son therefore no matter what they tell anyone about Joi, ultimately she is the one who will be ridiculed and punished. The fact that Nadia isn’t expecting also raises a lot of questions about whether Hatim really is Joi’s son but somehow Sadia is convinced that he is. Although Joi has convinced Sadia that she is the only one who will have to bear the brunt if their secret ever comes out but his reaction every time he hears someone coming suggests something different. Joi is a completely different person with Nadia because he knows he cannot dominate her the way he does with Sadia and Sila. I have a feeling that Nadia will play a positive role in this entire situation because so far she has been shown as someone who is honest and fair.

Raheel is gradually getting closer to the truth and I am waiting to find out what he is going to do once he finds out what is happening. Tonight, he also made sure that Nadia knew Joi couldn’t be trusted. While Zaini’s mother is still planning her daughter’s wedding, the preview of the next episode suggested that Zaini might have other plans. Hatim and Sila’s scene together in this episode as well was short but really touching. Hatim’s love for Sila is unconditional and even though Sila is trying her best to change the way she feels about Hatim, the fact is that she loves him as well and nothing can change that.

The preview of the next episode showed Nadia confronting Bari Apa and saying exactly what needed to be said! Joi once again harassed Sila – will she be able to take a stand for herself this time? This drama shows how very often a little courage goes a long way.

Tabeer Episode 5 – Review!

Ohkay so, this episode of Tabeer was basic but in great detail it showed how life without Zarnish & Yasir was for Fawad & Tabeer.

Zarnish passed away after giving birth to a baby boy & Fawad’s life turned upside down. For the first time it was good to see Fawad’s mother taking an initiative in taking care of the new born & not only that, she genuinely seemed worried for his well being as well. Fawad tried the best to cope up with the loss but his mind automatically got diverted to his child & his needs.

Tabeer also missed Yasir but she knew that she had to take care of her son but then every single moment, she was reminded of how difficult things are going to be without Yasir. Yasir at least took care of his family in the best way possible when he was alive, that is why he made sure that he paid off the house loan so that Daadi & Tabeer could live peacefully but unfortunately, Ajju found out about it & because he is so money-hungry, he won’t miss a chance to grab it as soon as he can!

Sana came a little too late to see Zarnish only to find out that she passed away. Sana contacted Fawad to convey her condolences but also reminded him that he now has a bigger responsibility in the form of his son. Zarnish’s parents & their involvement in this entire matter was quite bizarre. It seemed as if Zarnish’s mother was never angry at her daughter but then she didn’t keep in touch with her either. Also, it was unconvincing that even after getting alerted from the doctors that the chances of Zarnish’s survival are slim, Fawad didn’t do anything to inform her mother especially. Even though Fawad contacted Zarnish’s father but still he should have let her mother know before anyone else.

Overall, it was a decent episode. This drama qualifies as a guilty pleasure but considering the depressing start that it has had, I can totally see why people might not want to tune to it as much. It looks like Tabeer & Daadi will be forced out of their home & I am sure Tabeer will become a foster mother to Fawad’s son, let’s see how things roll. Please share your thoughts.

Khudgarz Episode 22 Review – Tragic!

I’m sure no one saw this coming. A few weeks into this drama, quite a lot of viewers started commenting about Junaid’s death but I am sure no one could’ve predicted this about Aairah. This drama took sadness to another level & I am sure this episode must have left quite a lot of viewers heavy hearted too!

This episode focused on how everyone’s life was functioning without Junaid. Munawwar was just depressed because he couldn’t stop thinking about how things went wrong & how he couldn’t do anything to make them right. With every passing moment, Munawwar was reminded of how hard life was going to be because the guilt kept on bringing him down. With Junaid’s death, Munawwar changed as he was forced to re-evaluate what was important in life & he realized that it was high time he reciprocated the love with which Salma treated him all her life. Munawwar not only accepted but admitted that he was a weak man & because Salma’s submissiveness made him feel superior, he always oppressed her.

Munawwar finally got the cheque from the insurance company & all he could think of was how meaningless this amount was because it could never bring back his happiness; both of his sons. Munawwar didn’t have the courage to face Aairah or hold Dua because he held himself responsible for whatever Aairah was going through but because Salma encouraged him, he finally embraced his granddaughter.

Aamir was concerned for Aairah but then again Salma was right, Aairah could never be happy living away from a place where she spent her life with Junaid. Aairah was struggling, she couldn’t cope up with the fact that Junaid was no more. A psychiatrist who did so well professionally was becoming emotionally weak with each passing moment because people around her blamed her for being too happy with her husband. Junaid was her only safety blanket, her only comfort zone & now when he was no more, she just couldn’t stop herself from resorting to those pills which were acting like a slow poison. Aairah knew that after her, Dua won’t be left alone because she will find a mother, a sister, a friend in Abeer & that is exactly what happened. After Aairah passed away, Abeer decided to take care of Dua but despite Munawwar not being in its favor, Salma allowed Abeer. Salma knows that no matter what, Dua will need a mother & a father in her life, which was a space that both she & Munawwar won’t be able to fill.

Finally, Hassan came back only to find out that Aairah was no more. Hassan will now try to do everything to prove his love to Junaid by taking care of Dua but he will now understand how hard it is to he parted with someone you love after Abeer will take Dua away from him.

This episode was realistic & convincing & because of that, it was pretty depressing. Life surely is unpredictable & it is only because of ego, people end up ruining other’s lives & then spend the rest of theirs in regret. While watching Munawwar feeling guilty, all I could think of was how different things would have been if Munawwar hadn’t treated Junaid the way he did, sigh! Please share your thoughts.

Ishq Tamasha Episode 1-4 Review – Good Start!

Director: Danish Nawaz

Writer: Misbah Nosheen

Cast: Junaid Khan, Aiman Khan, Faizan Khawaja, Kinza Hashmi, Saba Faisal and Furqan Qureshi.

 

Ishq Tamasha is directed by Danish Nawaz which attracted me to give it a try in the first place. His Sunn Yaara was very good and Ishq Tamasha has also started well. Ishq Tamasha is the story of two couples. The leading ladies belong to a middle-class family. Mirha (Aiman Khan) is an orphan and she lives with her Chachi who is Rushna’s (Kinza Hashmi) mother. Rushna is a happy go lucky spirit. She seems a bit greedy and judgmental as well. She lies a lot too. All she cares about are good clothes, good food and anything with a tag of expensive. Mirha, on the other hand, is the hated orphan who has to do all chores and getting blamed for every wrong thing is also one of her many duties. Chachihates her because her only abroad wala beta Wahaj wants to marry Mirha.

The other family is in total contrast to Mirha and Rushna’s. Arham (Faizan Khawaja) and Mehrab (Junaid Khan) belong to a very rich family. Mehrab handles all the business while Arham only spends money on stupid things and getting the girl.

With four episodes down, the paths have crossed of the above four. Arham has fallen in love with Rushna at first sight. He is ending him ridiculously expensive gifts and is making Mehrab pay for them. Rushna is being her greedy self and when her mother gets to know about anything, she always easily blames it on Mirha thus making life more miserable for her. Mirha is shown as more of a realistic and less of a bechari. She knows there is no one to help her and therefore always tries to avoid problems. But Rushna is there to make her life hell which she is stupidly allowing. She met Mehrab two times and both very dramatically but from the last episode, it seems like Mehrab mistook Mirha for the girl Arham wants to marry.

One thing which I am kind of disliking up till now are the CHEESY phone conversations between Arham and Rushna. They are a bit much to tolerate but the overall story is good. Ishq Tamasha is off to a good start with nice characterization and a good pace. The story is edited well too with not many extra scenes. With a good start let’s see how Ishq Tamasha moves forward and hope it does not become an extra stretchable chewing gum!

Laal Ishq Episodes 20-23 Review – Still Going Strong

These four episodes of Laal Ishq have taken the drama forward in huge steps and all of them equally engaging, intriguing and yet all the more complicated. For Ansa Mehrunnisa aka one woman army of Laal Ishq, things are downhill since the day she has found out the identity of Farhad and Rameen. First her world came crashing down when she got to know that she had unknowingly engaged her daughter to the man’s daughter whose blood she is thirsty for. Secondly, to her utter dismay, her strength, Mehr Punaar has fallen in love with Bali’s daughter. That makes him leave Bali unharmed not once but twice because of the love that he has for her. The first time, mamoo Munir tried to do his job but Punaar stopped him the middle, which made Bali hurt and hospitalized but not fatally. This was so difficult for Mehrunnisa to grasp that she lost all senses in anger. Her effect was so much on Punaar that he agreed not to leave Bali alive the next time he finds him. He even denies his love for Rameen but she is not going to let him go that easily. She reached the restaurant unexpectedly when he and Farhad were meeting and created a huge scene which ultimately made his brother realise that she had also fallen in love.

Mehr Punar is shown very realistically confused. He has been brought up and raised in a way that his sole reason for existence was to take revenge for Hukum’s murder. Now that he has discovered romantic feelings for Rameen, he doesn’t know how to deal with them. He can’t dissociate her identity of being Bali’s daughter away from her and that makes him swing between a love hate pendulum for her. Aabi Khan has consistently been a star in all four episodes.

Farhad is also just amazing as the calm and controlled one. It’s lovely to see all four youngsters with individual personalities and temperaments being so wonderfully played and acted out. Amongst the terribly emotional Punaar and Mahi and Rameen, Farhad is an oasis of calm and thoughtfulness. He is strong but gentle unlike Punar who is gentle at heart but doesn’t quite know how to control his temperament and all that’s expected out of him. That’s understandable though, since they have been raised by totally opposite individuals and they have the characteristics of their parents in them.

Ansa Mehrunnisa has crossed all limits now and went to the extent of putting metal locks in Mahi’s feet to keep an eye on her all the time. Mahi has suffered so much at the hand of her mother, that she has started requesting Farhad to do court marriage with her, which he is almost willing to do but not quite. Mehrunnisa has even shot one of her maids and injured another one because she saw her helping Mahi in talking to Farhad.

The next time Punar and Munir have gone to kill Bali, Rameen comes in front of his father and Punar is helpless in love. He simply shoots at Bali’s feet and this time mamoo Munir also stops and follows Punar home.

On seeing that she is losing a battle, Mehrunnisa gets Mahi engaged and insults Jajji and Rameen when they come to request her for Mahi’s hand. Jajji and Farhad seems to be the only two who are feeling everything, hence they have that tragic expression all the time. The others, including Bali himslef are an example of if you think, life is a comedy. Despite their trials, they still see humor in all of it and that makes Laal Ishq a very interesting watch in an otherwise sad story.

It was very refreshing to see Zahid’s entry as such a good human being. Just by being egngaged to Mahi and that too wrongfully, he fully listens to her and wants to help her. He is such a positive character. Now that Mahi and Farhad are all set to elope secretly with Zahid’s help, Rameen tries to take Punar into confidence but he becomes Mehrunnisa’s son once again and gets really angry at the suggestion of Mahi and Farhad’s court marriage.
