Khuda Aur Mohabbat Episode 14 Review – Fairly Decent!

Ohkay so, this episode of Khuda Aur Mohabbat was interesting but honestly speaking, I wouldn’t say it was as impressive as the last few episodes were because for the first time, I found the flashbacks & the repetition of previously spoken dialogues a bit overbearing. Even though this episode had a lot of development to its credit & we got to see some anxiousness & nervousness in the actions of some characters, which surely was a good addition, but somehow for me, I am not sure why this episode on the whole didn’t leave an impact. For the first time I found the direction to be all over the place, like in the beginning there were three scenarios that were being shown simultaneously, which wasn’t necessary I believe. I think the director should have kept this sort of coverage limited to some very very important scenarios because to see it being overused & overdone is sort of killing the charm of it, which actually at first used to look like a very strong & impactful way of narrating a story. Also, I really think that they should’ve wrapped the events of the first season by this episode because as we all have seen it previously, we know that 14 episodes were enough to cover the first half of the novel. There’s definitely no doubt about the fact that the acting was top-notch like always & there was not even a single actor that didn’t perform well but its just that the overall editing, direction & the overpowering background music didn’t let me enjoy this episode as much as I wanted to.

So, Abdullah eventually learned the truth that Imaan went to Purani Haveli & grew curious because he actually assumed that Imaan & Haya, along with their mother must’ve went to do some last minute shopping. Abdullah’s reaction was believable because he couldn’t even imagine that Imaan would step outside the vicinity of her home & go to some place which actually might be associated with Hammad. Abdullah’s curiosity got the better of him & that is why upon probing he got to know that even Hammad visited Purani Haveli yesterday. All of a sudden, the entire puzzle got solved itself & Abdullah realized that Imaan & Hammad met each other. To be honest, I always felt that Abdullah felt guilty for coming in Hammad’s way but the way he decided to speak to Hammad & warn him elaborated the jealousy that he was harboring in his heart. Abdullah has loved Imaan all his life, but for Abdullah, the thought that his love couldn’t touch Imaan, couldn’t affect Imaan the way Hammad’s love did was intolerable. Abdullah’s warning was basically a depiction of how helpless he was feeling at that time that he decided to tell Hammad that he should leave him & his family alone. This was probably the first time when Abdullah became agitated seeing the power of Hammad’s love & his emotions for Imaan because despite loving Imaan all his life, Abdullah was unable to win her heart over. Even though Hammad put Abdullah’s speculations to rest that Imaan only came to request him to return to where he belongs & to not expect anything because for her, her father’s dignity & pride meant everything, but still just the thought that Imaan went to meet Hammad was enough for Abdullah to know that she must’ve some feelings for Hammad as well that she grew so concerned for him.

So, it looks like Amjad Raza is getting affected by what Hammad has done & what he is trying to achieve. The way he tried to look at the guy crossing the road in curiosity showed what he as a father of Hammad must’ve been going through. Yes, for Amjad Raza it might be difficult to admit but it still remains a fact that Hammad is his son & he loves him a lot, that is why hearing such harsh words from Abrina’s father about Hammad shook Amjad Raza & he definitely felt hurt that Hammad was being insulted like that. To be honest, even though I want the story to move forward & I want to see the events that took place in the second half of the novel, I so am not in a mood to see Abrina & her antics. I think Abrina has played her part & she has already destroyed Hammad’s relationship with his parents, so she should put a lid on everything because her announcement of not forgiving Hammad was distasteful & disturbing. No more negative character please!

Kamran & Ebaad want Najma to put things in perspective for Hammad because they know that out of all the people, Hammad actually listens to her & can’t say no to her. Najma has already been thinking about Hammad’s future because she knows that his love for Imaan has no future, so she most certainly doesn’t want Hammad to waste his life by thinking about what didn’t happen & what wasn’t meant to be, that is why, Najma immediately understood what Kamran & Ebaad were trying to say. It was good to see Hammad’s family getting involved & coming back into the picture because eventually Hammad will return to his home & his family.

Imaan is feeling guilty for going out of the way to see Hammad because she knows that this is something that wouldn’t sit well with her father. Imaan is under depression & it’s like she is now punishing herself but even though she loves Hammad, her reasons of punishing herself are different. Imaan knows that her father will never ever forgive her if he’ll find out that she met Hammad & had a conversation with him & that guilt is huge in itself for Imaan. Haya’s letter to Hammad, informing him about what Imaan was going through was heart-touching. It is good to see that there’s at least someone who understands Imaan & feels for her. The scene where both Abdullah & Hammad pray for Imaan was meaningful, beautiful & probably my favorite scene of this episode. They both feel for Imaan, they both love Imaan but they aren’t competing with each other because their main concern is Imaan & her safety. I felt nothing when I saw Molvi Aleemuddin crying out loud for his daughter, sorry, I just didn’t.

It is hard to see Hammad in pain. It is sad to see that even though Hammad has promised Molvi Aleemuddin that he wouldn’t do anything that might put a dent on his family or his image, Hammad is questioned time & again, he is doubted repeatedly & is told to not do anything that might hurt Imaan. Hammad has proved his love for Imaan & he has done more than anyone would ever do in order to prove the purity of his intentions, but it is heart-breaking that Hammad is misunderstood every single time. They all have conveniently held Hammad responsible for all the mishaps but none of them, apart from Haya, feels that they might have played a part in this destruction too. Even though Abdullah did feel guilty & told Haya that he is afraid to even confess that they all might be wronging Imaan, but then again, it’s of no use because Abdullah is not doing anything to help the situation either!

Overall, this episode was decent but it definitely could’ve been better. To be honest, even though I never had any issues with the flashbacks, I have now started dreading the thought of when the story will progress & Hammad will try to move on, how many flashbacks will we have to see then. At this stage, I don’t even feel the need to listen to those repeated dialogues because the drama-makers have helped me in memorizing them. Rambo, Imran Abbas, Humayun Ashraf, the actors playing the roles of Najma, Shakir & Haya, they all performed beautifully. Once again, in quite a few scenes, Imran Abbas’s perfect & realistic portrayal made me emotional. This journey has been special because of Imran Abbas for sure. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Khuda Aur Mohabbat.

Pukaar Last Episode Review – A Happy Ending!

Awww the last episode of Pukaar was sweet & I liked the way everything was addressed. I am glad that despite the extremely slow pace & the over dosage of flashbacks, Pukaar got a complete ending where all the things were given a proper closure without leaving a room for anything to be covered!

One of the best things of this episode was an end that Zamani met. She was made to pay for what she did – better late than never! Sultan & Tashfeen mourned the loss of their son Fahad & did realize that he never wanted to become a part of this political system that Sultan was running in his hometown. It did end up being the reason why Fahad died & both Sultan & Tashfeen knew that. It wasn’t surprising that Tashfeen showed up for a couple of seconds in this last episode because her role wasn’t important – just like her character. I also feel that Jia Ali was wasted in this drama & failed to leave a mark despite trying really hard.

Sultan assured Samra that Qasim belonged to her. This was his way of apologizing to her for all that she went through in his house where he just couldn’t protect her from the atrocities thrown her way. Rehan Sheikh did the best he could with this one dimensional character of Sultan but then that’s expected from an actor of his calibre.

It turned out that Laali Ma was basically aik bezti ki maar but having said that, it is worth mentioning that in a very brief conversation it was nicely elaborated how young widows in feudel setting are usually treated, where their urge to get settled again is suppressed & they are expected to become the torch bearer of family’s dignity. I also liked how Laali Ma admitted that she could not tolerate a girl who questioned her every step of the way, who was basically a newly wed – something which does tend to make ladies like Laali Ma envy their newly married daughters in law. Everything that Laali did was basically a reflection of her jealousy against Samra & then a chain reaction of everything that she herself endured when she got widowed, but it was good that she admitted & apologized for everything but I wish Samra had insulted her earlier so that this drama could’ve ended earlier too!

Finally, Samra overcame the guilt that she felt right from the beginning of her relationship with Sarang. Samra continuously labelled it as a betrayal against Fahad but then, even though dramatic, the entire scene was nicely done where Fahad communicates with her & talks her out of getting divorced. Even though they made it dramatic but it still had a touch of reality to it that those departed do tend to guide their loved ones through dreams!

Finally, Samra said it. I liked that they just didn’t end the drama by showing that Samra chose not to get divorced, in fact she worded her feelings & was the first one to admit that she was in love with Sarang. Obviously, he gave her plenty of reasons to fall in love with him & I am glad she did. Their chemistry was amazing & it was nice to see how comfortable Yumna Zaidi & Zahid Ahmed looked with each other on-screen.

Even though the story of this drama was predictable right from the beginning, there was something that kept the viewers coming back to it. I honestly believe that 16-18 episodes were enough for a story like Pukaar because the content wasn’t new. The unnecessary usage of flashbacks & extremely slow pace did at times made this drama a task to tune to but I will let it slide considering all’s well when it ends well. For me, the best thing about this drama was Sarang’s character. It was nice to see a positive soul with a positive outlook on life in the middle of so much of negativity. Zahid Ahmed did the best he could but I so wish he hadn’t just sat on the makeup chair without an input allowing the so-called MUA’s do their own thing because they well & truly messed his look with unnecessary amount of makeup which did affect his character’s personality – thanks to a well-written, well-conceived character & even better acting that Zahid Ahmed was able to save himself as well as Sarang. Yumna Zaidi did really well in terms of acting but now when the drama has ended, I don’t feel any connection with Samra’s character & I am happy at the happy ending only for Sarang’s sake. Anyways, please share your thoughts!

Meri Gurya Episodes 3 & 4 Review – Highs and Lows!

These two episodes gave further insight into the personalities of all the central characters and their relationships with each other. It was just as disturbing as the first two episodes because it was shown in detail how a paedophile’s mind works. Dabeer’s scenes were the most frightening element of these two episodes. Mohsin Abbas Haider has once again nailed a character which isn’t easy to translate on screen. However, I must say that because lately we have seen a few really good dramas which highlighted the mindset of such sick people you can’t help but compare this drama with Udaari in particular and Dabeer’s character with that of Imtiaz. While Imtiaz was a more clever person who knew how to manipulate others and his personality characteristics definitely fit in more with the general profile of such criminals, there are certain aspects of Dabeer’s personality which are difficult to understand. It was shown that Dabeer always liked playing with dolls and still owned dolls, I am wondering how does this aspect of his personality fit in the whole picture and why is it considered “not normal” for a little boy to play with dolls. I feel that it would have made more sense if he kept these dolls to allure little girls as opposed to showing that because he played with girls as a child there was something wrong with him since he was little. I could be wrong but that is the impression I got from this scene.

Overall however the writer has intelligently conveyed how such people get all the details they need and the fact that this is someone who is really close to the family also hits home. In these two episodes, Dabeer made up his mind that Abida was going to be his next victim and he did whatever he could to get all the information he needed to execute his evil plan. All his interactions with Abida were terribly frightening and when Abida went missing I found myself hoping that she was still alive. I am glad that the writer didn’t rush things and I also hope that Abida is somehow saved in the upcoming episodes too. In these four episodes, Abida has been introduced as a sweet girl who unlike her sisters goes to a madrassah because the education there is for free. Although, she is the third girl her grandmother never wanted and wished she was a boy but she is also the one who is relatively closer to her since she doesn’t go to school and isn’t “liberal” like her sisters. The child actress playing Abida’s role has played her part really well. Sania Saeed’s acting as usual has been effortless and effective. She is convincing and likeable as a mother who does whatever she can for her daughters under the given circumstances. Safeena’s character is likeable but Sonya Hussyn’s hairdo and overall outlook isn’t up to the mark. This character could have been far more impressive had it been translated on screen differently. Having said that, it isn’t difficult connecting to the kind of relationship Safeena and Abida share and the genuine concern Safeena has not just for Abida but for everyone else too. Big Bang should give up this hairstyle for good, it didn’t look good on Saboor in Meeras and it doesn’t suit Sonya either. The production house is coming up with better stories but the supporting actors and the overall feel of their plays needs a makeover.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Although Safeena wanted Dabeer to divorce her whenever he could but now she has realized that she can fulfill her dream while being married to him therefore she has decided to make this relationship work. Dabeer’s withdrawn attitude around her made perfect sense. He was constantly planning his next step and thinking about all the information he had gathered so far. Safeena could tell that there was something wrong with him but she could never even imagine that the person who she thinks needs help, actually needs to be put behind bars. Dabeer mentioned that Jahan Ara’s father used to teach him Quran and he said so in a meaningful manner. I am wondering if he went through a traumatic experience in the past!

In this episode the viewers saw that Abida’s phupo Jahan Ara will ultimately end up “assisting” Dabeer without knowing it. Shehnaz’s close relationship with her daughters has been well established in these four episodes therefore it will be heart-wrenching watching her suffer in the upcoming episodes. The preview of the next two episodes was confusing and it was difficult to tell whether or not Dabeer will be able to execute his evil plan, which is definitely better than knowing exactly what will happen next! So far, Meri Gurya has been a decent watch and I am waiting to see how the story moves forward in the upcoming episodes. The way this drama shows that a murderer and rapist could be a seemingly harmless neighbor is yet another reminder that parents should not trust anyone with their children. Although, Udaari and Muqabil both gave the same message but I do feel that these things should be shown on television repeatedly since there are times when parents tend to overlook such aspects.

Ishq Tamasha Episode 18 Review-Revenge Begins!

This episode has started Mehrab’s revenge spree against Rushna and one more thing it has established is YES! RUSHNA IS SUPER EVIL. Rushna got to know about Arham’s death in the very start and has no reaction to it. She was still indulged in her chocolate covered dreams. Mehrab has also become a constant confusion now. Not letting Rushna’s mother bring breakfast is his idea of taking revenge for his brother’ death? He didn’t even confide in his Phupho who has also suffered an immense loss. Her decision to leave Mehrab was the sanest scene in the whole episode.

Mirha bechari kya kare? Thanda paani pi maray! Yes, Mirha’s situation just reminded me of this nursery rhyme. She just started dreaming about her saviour (kidnapper) Mehrab and all her dreams were shattered in a second. Mehrab’s scheme of sending her back is also non-sensical. Pressurizing your wife to send Mirha back is not going to get Mirha her reputation. And Mirha was s settled in Mehrab’s house. Parr ye bhi Rushna le gayi!

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Rushna is a mature girl who knows how to scheme, trap boys and insult anyone. So, she must behave like that too. Her whole behaviour after reaching Mehrab’s house was like that of a child. She had no interest left in Mehrab who was her dream prince. All she wanted was to redecorate and wander around the house. Most annoyingly, she did not even ask Mehrab that why his family does not know about their marriage? And why there are no preparations for a Walima. Rushna is still not miserable. She is still scheming and being a jerk. Hopefully, in the next few episodes, we could see her regretting her attitude.

The whole Palwasha episode is super-weird. The girl is a very good actress indeed but she is too young to get scoldings for Gajras and have affairs with her cousin who is too grown up for her I must add. Aqeela really needs to take a hold of her daughters. They are literally messing up the balance everywhere. And it is high time that Wahaj starts taking practical decisions instead of lounging around and throwing unnecessary sarcasm!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka Episode 3 Review-Whateven!

This drama started like a high-speed roller coaster and deteriorated at the speed of the lightning. In just three episodes, the makers have forgotten what they were trying to go for. It started as a love triangle where two brothers fell for a single girl. Then we saw the scenario of adoption come into play. The adopted boy sacrificed his love for the sake of his mother’s satisfaction.

Dania is the worst I would say. First, you went blaming only Zaryab for the whole ordeal. She didn’t even try to take matters into her own hand. Then she is seen blaming Armaan. Armaan at least stuck with what he was going for. He divorced the girl and doesn’t want anything to do with her. But now the bechari Dania wants to keep living with a man who has divorced her. What kind of culture or mentality is being promoted here? Even if they wanted to show Dania as a bechari, they could have shown her ordeals after the divorce. But she is living with her ex-husband, making parathas for him. Like WHAT EVEN???

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Zaryab and Armaan’s encounters are too childish to bear too. When you have already openly said woh tumhari biwi hai, then at least complete the conversation. And Armaan, a guy who divorced a girl in a second and has no regards for the society is waiting to talk openly about it with his brother. Why is he not cleaning up the mess? He didn’t ask Dania when he was divorcing her. So, why is he waiting for her approval to announce it?

The mother’s character is also so poorly etched out. She is trying to make Dania behave as Armaan’s mother or nanny rather than a life partner. At the same time, she is concerned about Zaryab’s marriage. If you loved Armaan so much and you knew he is such a sensitive soul, why you married him off to his brother’s girlfriend in the first place?

Moreover, the performances are so bad throughout this episode. Alamdaar needs serious work on his dialogue delivery as well as his expressions. Even Hareem seemed lost in all her scenes. The lack of depth has literally destroyed this drama in only the third episode.

Yes, many would say I have come harsher on it but they are showing a girl who wants to live with her ex-husband which is ridiculous!
