Khuda Aur Mohabbat Season 2 Episode 1 Review – The Journey Begins!

Khuda Aur Mohabbat Season 2 Episode 1 Review – The Journey Begins! 4

Ohkay so, the production of Babar Javed, script based on the novel written by Hashim Nadeem & the direction of Syed Ali Raza; Khuda Aur Mohabbat Season 02 hit our TV screens tonight. I must say, I am really glad with the treatment that they have given to the story in this season of Khuda Aur Mohabbat because I feel things are a lot more details & the scenarios are being established properly in comparison to the previous season. However, I will say that those who haven’t watched the first season are in a plus because it seems that the entire story is going to be repeated in this season in order to give it & the character of Hammad a proper closure. I just binge-watched the first season & even though I loved it, I still feel that if I had a slightest idea about the plot of the season 02, I would never have watched it to enjoy this ride even more, but nonetheless, I am definitely looking forward to this journey & I will say, that this version does seem to be bigger & better, so it’s a success already. So, yes, my suggestion to those viewers/readers who are planning to watch season 01 would be that they should skip it & enjoy season 02 in stead as they wouldn’t miss a thing!

The drama begins with a narration where the war between love & the Gods of this world is being discussed. The narrator does have a point, that The One who created Love can never oppose it, but it is the self-proclaimed Gods of this world who deem it as their duty to go against it & deprive people of this emotion.

We are introduced to a care-free guy & his couple of friends having the time of their lives. They’re the university students & seem to have no worry in their lives because the life has not thrown a curve-ball on them, yet! Suddenly, we see a shift in the scenario & get introduced to a Muaddin & his family in the following scenes. This happens to be the household of Molvi Aleemuddin (Firdous Jamal), whose family consists of his wife Rasheeda & two daughters Imaan (Sadia Khan) & Haya. We get an insight into their family set up & their lifestyle which is very humble & very simple. It is quite evident that Molvi Aleemuddin has kept his family closer to the religion & has shaped the characters of his family members that way. In the following scene, we get an insight into an entire different world, which happens to be a family of the retired commissioner Amjad Raza (Usman Peerzada) & his Wife (Saba Faisal). Amjad Raza has three sons Sajjad, Hammad (Imran Abbas) & Emaad. Sajjad is married to Abrina & has a son Sunny. Emaad is preparing to go abroad for further studies & it seems that the second son Maddy is already in abroad pursing his education. After retiring as a commissioner, Amjad Raza has stepped into politics because according to him, power means everything & he would go to any lengths to further expand the list of his achievements!

Hammad is having the time of his life in Houston & it seems that he is not even focused much on his education & is not worried about his future because he is well aware of the social class that he belongs to. Maddy knows that his father has earned & achieved a lot in his life & that is why he acts like a typical spoiled brat who has no sense of responsibility. Maddy’s childhood friend Kami has also gone to USA with him & it seems that Maddy is Kami’s safety net!

Shakir happens to be Amjad Raza’s driver & he also looks after the Purani Haveli that Amjad Raza owns. Shakir has been working for this family since the time Amjad’s father was alive & Amjad himself used to study abroad, that is the reason why Amjad’s entire family trusts Shakir & depends on him. Shakir lives in one of the quarters of the Purani Haveli but before moving to the quarters, he was a neighbor of Molvi Aleemuddin, that is why their families are on very good terms with each other & Shakir’s daughter Nighat seems to be Imaan’s best friend as well.

As the story unfolded, we got to know how Rasheeda was worried about the household expenses because Molvi Aleemuddin taught Holy Qur’an to his students free of cost, but his wife felt that he was being a little too generous. That is when Shakir’s wife tells Rasheeda that Amjad’s grandson Sunny wants to learn Holy Qur’an as well, so she should convince Molvi Aleemuddin to take the job because it will make things easier for them financially. Shakir also requests Molvi Aleemuddin to teach Sunny as he actually wants to help him & eventually convinces him. We got to see that Molvi Aleemuddin is a very admirable character but he is capable of getting a little stern when things don’t go his way. Molvi Aleemuddin shares a very strong & beautiful bond with his eldest daughter Imaan, I loved how they showed that both Imaan & her father have long discussions & conversations about different matters revolving around religion. It also seems that Aleemuddin has an attachment with Imaan on another level, that is why he takes utmost care of her needs & necessities!

It seems that Aleemuddin’s nephew Abdullah (Humayun Ashraf) is coming to stay with him for the sake of his education too & his mother is interested in getting Abdullah married to Imaan. Abdullah also seems interested in Imaan & that is why he seemed happy with his move where he will get to be around Aleemuddin’s family, especially Imaan!

Overall, the first episode introduced all the characters in detail & gave us an insight into their lives appropriately. I must say I am actually quite glad that they decided to make things a lot more elaborate, because it was necessary for all the viewers to have a fresh start & fall in love with the beautiful characters once again. The director surely has taken the level of the script a notch higher with his immaculate direction & all the actors seemed to be owning their characters already, at such an initial stage of the drama, which once again is a bonus. I wish Maddy’s character got a little more coverage in this episode but it’s alright as he already is the main character of the drama so he will get a lot more chances to leave an impact on us. I will say that I see a great improvement in Sadia Khan’s acting & she looked lovely throughout the episode. Imran Abbas makes all his character look so real due to his effortless acting, so I am already looking forward to his performance as Hammad. I will commend Firdous Jamal for such a beautiful recitation of Fajr Prayer, it was actually quite touching. Firdous Jamal’s overall mannerisms showed the amount of effort he put in to own the character of Molvi Aleemuddin & his performance testified his experience as an actor, that is why, he turned out to be the star of this episode. I can’t wait for the next episode already as I know we have so much in store for us. Please share your thoughts about the very first episode of Khuda Aur Mohabbat!

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!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka Episode 2 Review-Surprising!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka started at a rapid pace but I must admit, I was not expecting these many surprises already. We all saw the sudden engagement of Daniya and Armaan while Zaryab was pining for his lost love. The second episode featured the marriage ceremony of the two while Zaryab was crying in different cornersZaryab actually is a coward. Yes, the concept is that he is Ahsanon Talay Daba Larka and for this very reason he did not respect his love enough. But he should have given a thought to Armaan’s feelings. How could he do this to Armaan whom he loves more than anyone? Since the whole Islamabad is familiar with Zaryab and Daniya’s affair, why he didn’t think of the fact that someone will tell Armaan eventually? Daniya was also a very unreasonable person. She was begging Zaryab to do something on her mehendi. She could have tried a bit earlier or the simple way out was to talk it out with Armaan. Armaan told her how much he loves Zaryab, so Daniya should have told him the truth. But well, then there would be no drama.

Armaan knew about the situation suddenly after bringing Daniya home. The funny thing is they got Nikkahfied in the morning but reached their home at night. He was as quick in taking decisions as his brother is slow. Instead of handling everything like a mature person, he divorced Daniya. He didn’t even discuss it with Zaryab before taking such a huge step.

Meri Guriya Episodes 1 & 2 – Disturbing But Not Original Enough

Written By: Radain Shah
Directed By: Ali Hassan
Produced By: Big Bang Entertainment
Schedule: Every Wednesday 8pm

I have to admit that the only reason I tuned into this show was the writer, I absolutely loved drama serial Nibah and was waiting for another drama written by Radain Shah. Also, right now, those dramas which highlight either social issues or revolve around family ties interest me more than those which focus on love triangles. Dar Si Jati Hei Sila set the bar really high therefore I couldn’t help but compare the two after watching the first episode of Meri Guriya. While Dar Si Jati Hei Sila dealt with abuse alone, this one showed the aftermath of a child’s brutal rape and murder and will also be focusing on the person responsible for this horrific act. Unfortunately, since we have all heard the gruesome details of how the beautiful and innocent Zainab was subjected to torture and rape therefore connecting the dots immediately was easy. The fact that the policeman pointed out that this was the 12th case of its kind showed that this particular incident wasn’t just fictional but was taken from Zainab’s tragedy. While this has unfortunately become a “trend” nowadays, I wish the makers of the drama didn’t add these details which showed the link of this story with that of Zainab. It is painful for the parents to watch such dramatized events on screen specifically when they know that this is their child’s story. Even if the intention of the makers is honest, this is unethical since Zainab’s parents made it quite clear that they do not want to see their child’s murder be dramatized. The details under the YouTube videos also mentioned that the drama makers have taken “inspiration from a real-life incident”. Having said that, I have faith in the writer and few of the actors involved therefore I am definitely going to follow this play and hope that the makers will be able to do justice to the story.

The first episode of Meri Guriya gave me goose bumps, it was a little too disturbing because it covered how Arfa, a nine year old girl, was dumped in the forest after being brutally raped and murdered. While these events were covered with utmost honesty and realistically, I did feel that Big Bang Entertainment yet again used the shock factor as an attention-grabbing tactic. Shehnaz (Sania Saeed) and Shahmeer’s (Sajjid Hassan) track had Mubarak Ho Beti Hui Hei written all over it therefore it won’t be wrong to say that this particular track isn’t too original either. The fact that Sajjid Hassan is playing the role of a man who cannot take a stand for his wife and doesn’t love his daughters enough and Ayesha Khan yet again is playing the daddi who hates her granddaughters, is constantly mocking them and her daughter in law doesn’t help either! Also, Shehnaz just like Naheed is a strong woman who loves her daughters and is completely focused on their well-being. One of Shehnaz’s 3 daughters Abida was really close to Arfa therefore she finds it really hard to cope with the loss. At the same time she is also fascinated by the dulhan next door since there is a wedding taking place in the neighborhood. She insists she wants to see the bride even though everyone is feeling terrified and insecure after Arfa’s murder. In these two episodes Abida and the new bride Safeena (Sonya Hussyn) develop a special bond with each other. Abida looks up to and adores the new bride and Safeena also likes her.

Safeena’s character reminded me of Farwa in the first episode but in the second episode the viewers were shown a different side of her as well. Safeena is outspoken, she plays badminton professionally and expects her husband Dabeer (Mohsin Abbas Haider) to divorce her soon so that she can pursue her career. Dabeer too isn’t interested in this marriage, he got married only to please his mother. ARY pretty much gave away the basic storyline and the reality behind the characters therefore even right now when the viewers should be wondering why Dabeer was crying in front of his wife and later on laughing when he heard that the rapist committed suicide, we know exactly why! Abida’s fate has also been mentioned in the summary given by ARY on YouTube! Sania Saeed. Mohsin Abbas Haider and Sajjid Hassan are my favorite actors, they are constantly experimenting and never fail to impress. These two episodes however could have been far more powerful had they not been inspired from Zainab’s tragedy and Mubarak Ho Beti Hui Hei. The story obviously will be completely different from that of MHBHH but these similarities should have been avoided.

After watching these two episodes I am still on the fence because of the lack of originality but curious to find out how the makers treat this incredibly difficult subject since they are not only going to focus on the victims but also the perpetrator. Also, I would like to request ARY to keep the summaries of their plays short and to the point because they give away a little too much!

Tabeer Episode 9 – Review!

Ohkay so, this episode of Tabeer was pretty decent too. The story is moving forward but before anything, I just wish this drama ends on a decent note without much dragging because there are very few characters so it might get tiresome watching them for a very long time!

Tabeer started taking care of Fawad’s son & she had to do that on expense of her own child. Fawad obviously grew more concerned for her seeing the sacrifice she was making. It was only because of Tabeer that Fawad now didn’t have to worry much about the well being of his son.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Daadi & Asma left but I really didn’t get why they decided to take Tabeer’s son with them & why didn’t they let him be with his mother? Yes, the doctor did say that Tabeer for now should only nurse Fawad’s son but that didn’t mean she had to distance herself from her child physically as well? This was an unnecessary twist in the story in my opinion & also quite unwanted.

Fawad & Tabeer had a little interaction where Tabeer misconstrued the entire situation but then again, there was no need for Fawad to draw closer to her. Also, it was suggested that Fawad left the room because Tabeer needed privacy while nursing the baby so even if she fell asleep afterwards, how come Fawad entered the room without prior notice like knocking the door or something? As he already knew that Tabeer was inside with his baby, so there was no need for him to come inside just so casually?

Ajju & his brother had a deal that Ajju will get Tabeer whereas his brother will get the house that belongs to Tabeer. On the other hand, Fawad contacted Saniya to apologize. I don’t think this is a wise move because I am sure Saniya will start misunderstanding his feelings once again. The way Fawad spoke to her was enough for her to mistakenly rekindle her old feelings for him & this is not what Fawad should do!
Overall, it was a decent episode but I am dreading the next episode, I really hope nothing happens to Tabeer’s child because it would be too much!!! Please share your thoughts.
