Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 20-25 Review- (Un) Happily Married!

There is something about this drama – the treatment it has been given, the portrayal of people and characters whose stories actually seem relatable and yes the acting that keeps my interest engaged all the while the episode is playing. Conversations and moments where we are shown what a certain character is thinking also helps one understand what is going through everyone’s minds and although a few things seemed a bit out of place, on the whole I like how the story is moving forward and am interested to see what happens next week.

Sajal and Faraz’s showdown eventually managed her to snap out of her silly antics and rants and thankfully the two seem to have sorted out things between themselves. Aina’s and Mohsin’s reluctance to get married was totally understandable and I was surprised initially to see Aina give in easily. While I know most of us would love to have been able to see Aina stand up for herself and make a life for herself and Maaz, I do also appreciate that not every woman has the courage or the luck to make it happen. Probably the accusation Sajal hurled at Aina regarding Faraz was the last straw for her and although she has never been fond of Mohsin what Aina says later seemed to make sense for the way she said it made me think she believes what she is saying. Having been left in the lurch by the man she thought loved her, moments of weakness or desperation leading to her handing over her child to Sajal and now seeing how Nadia, who Aina had been fond of has left three children behind, she feels this is her place. She can not tag along with Faraz and Sajal forever, apparently has squashed the notion of making it on her own so Mohsin’s ‘name’ can give her the security she wants and looking after his three children can help cover the void to an extent that giving Maaz away has left. Her words, not mine.

Anyways, while Aina has wholeheartedly decided to make this marriage work, Mohsin has grown even more unbearable. I can not help but mention how refreshing it is to see a character like Aina who, if has made up her mind to see a marriage through, is giving it her best rather than resorting to tantrums. She seems to have let go of her past but I am also glad to see that although she has her moments where she is cowering in fear (a bit extreme in my opinion) she can not resist the flippant remarks that come naturally to her or the raised eyebrows at Mohsin’s comments. Even Mohsin is finding it hard to stomach this ‘agreeable’ Aina and knowing about Imran makes it harder for him to trust her.

Another thing I breathed a sigh of relief over was the treatment of ‘halala’. Hopefully this idea will not make an appearance later on for I would have spoken too soon but I was extremely glad to see how Aina balked at the idea and made it very clear to Imran that he was delusional to even think such a thing. This ‘halala’ issue has been done to death and when talks of Aina marrying Mohsin arose I thought this might come up but I am glad that Aina seems to think it absurd. Also, even though Ainnie was able to drive them apart, Aina has no false impressions of how Imran might be innocent for she despises him for being the weakling that he was and nothing can really change that fact. It made me laugh how even his own mother threw that in his face, about him being weak.

One thing that does bother me, and I have to keep reminding myself, is the fact that Mohsin still does not know that Aina married Imran and is also Maaz’s mother. When Aina had such a clear mind about everything else going into this marriage I would have hoped she would have told Mohsin the truth. I do not stomach the thought that she was so desperate that she let this all go although yes if Mohsin had known this then he would most likely have not married her for he already thinks less of her for having ‘liked’ Imran, let alone having secretly married, divorced and also given birth to a child!

Ainnie and Imran’s marriage and the ‘games’ Imran plays with her make no sense to me. I do not even find it convincing that this is the only gratification he feels, that he can make Ainnie suffer the way he has. I was happier to see less of both of them and although Ainnie seems to have had a moment of regret, she bounces back, teeth clenched and seems like nothing has changed there. Yawwn.

Mohsin is one hell of a ‘sari mirch’ – maybe a lal mirch since with the taunts there is also the ever present rage boiling over! Fine, we get he does not trust Aina yet but she seems sincere and also says as much to him so maybe not give her the ‘Nadia treatment’?! Even though I am glad to see Aina has not totally lost her spunk and although she was very outspoken and impulsive earlier, I would hate to see her become totally docile and a whimpering, agreeable wife to please Mohsin. Likewise would love to see Mohsin show a nicer side – the exasperated, indignant looks he gives with his lectures mirror the expression on MY face over his attitude!

Still waiting to see the twins back home. Also a little less of this khala that shows up to do nothing else but cause trouble! I wonder if Faraz and Sajal will leave with Maaz without Mohsin learning of the truth? Or will Aina be able to tell him herself?

Although Naveen and Emaad overdo the eye widening a bit and Aina’s cowering seems a bit OTT sometimes, but otherwise I find that Naveen has made Aina’s character very interesting and the drama very watchable. Mirza Zain has made Faraz such a likeable character and when he calls Aina ‘Aani’ and speaks to her it is almost as if he really is a ‘normal, concerned’ older brother. Yes the drama has its dramatic moments, such as the whole maid kidnapping scene and Mohsin appearing at the right instant and the incident serving as a catalyst to move the marriage along and Sajal’s moaning did do my head in but honestly I feel what is this drama’s USP is the fact that it portrays a story and characters that you feel may actually exist in real life. Along with the characters are their flaws and their moments of self reflection which is nicely done such as Imran being weak, Aina learning to move on, Sajal accepting she became overly bitter and so on. While Mohsin seems naturally to be the way he is, the moments where we see how he thinks that he wants to be close to Aina and say something else but ends up blurting the opposite or that he feels he may be betraying Nadia’s memory did not make me understand him totally but did make me feel generous enough to give him some time to get over things and become nicer. I do not know know why, maybe because it was different and finally not cliche but I loved how Aina replied to Mohsin’s ‘aurat ko bhataktay huay dair nahin lagti‘ comment!

Looking forward to seeing how things develop between Mohsin and Aina and how and when Aina’s past catches up with her. What did you all think of these episodes? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Khudgarz Episode 9 & 10 Review – Going Strong!

Ohkay so, this episode of Khudgarz was interesting & engaging. It surely kept me at the edge of my seat because I assumed something bad was going to happen to Aairah & it didn’t but then again that idea can’t be ruled out since Hassan’s calm is an indication of a storm that might be coming her way!

Finally, Abeer & Raheel were not only settling down with each other but they were developing understanding as well. Since Abeer has had such a bitter experience in the past, she didn’t take a second in misunderstanding Raheel whereas he was only trying to protect her. It is nice that Abeer acknowledges the fact that Aairah has brought such a nice change in her life & has guided her through. If it wasn’t for Aairah, Abeer would have never given it a thought that may be Raheel’s suggestion of looking for another job had some solid reason behind it!

Hassan obviously couldn’t cope up with the fact that everyone around him was happy & busy in their lives. Abeer not only left him but moved on too & right in front of him, Aairah & Junaid were falling in love with each other with each passing day, so obviously Hassan had to do something to wipe those smiles off their face. Sending old photographs to Raheel only showcased how sickly twisted Hassan is. Hassan literally devised a plan to send Junaid away so that he can work on getting Aairah comfortable with him. Hassan can clearly see that his father is not only sympathizing with him but is paying heed to everything that he says, that is why he is making sure to steer his thoughts against Junaid.

I have said it before & I will say that again, the main culprit behind Hassan’s unreasonability is Munawwar, his father. The way Munawwar spoke about Aairah & finding a girl for Hassan clearly showcased the sort of mentality he has. Also, the way he treated Inayat was enough to show how heartless he is. It is so obvious that Munawwar is regretting his decision of getting Aairah & Junaid married & I couldn’t believe when he judged Aairah for falling in love with her husband & also judged her father for getting her married to Junaid. Munawwar has shown how unreasonable he is & because he believes everything that Hassan says, I am sure he will be paying a huge price because of it. Even though Munawwar found out what Hassan did with Raheel & Abeer, he didn’t bother asking his son for an explanation as he was too busy blaming his wife & sympathizing with Hassan!

Aairah could already feel something. Her 6th sense was telling her that things might go wrong. Aairah was right in feeling that when everything was wrong, she would feel at ease but now when things were seemingly falling into their place, she could sense that something bad was coming her way. Aairah’s dependence on Junaid & her emotional attachment with him was super sweet. Just like Aairah, Junaid has also realized that he can’t be without her. It was for the first time that Junaid spoke against Hassan when he found out that Aairah took a ride to her office with Hassan, it goes to show that when it comes to Aairah, Junaid is wary of a lot of things & he doesn’t trust just anyone. I already feel bad knowing that both Munawwar & Hassan are against Aairah & Junaid, they so do not deserve this!!!

Overall it was a very interesting episode. I loved the way Abeer fell in love with Raheel all over again when she found out that he was trying to protect her from Hassan & all those office colleagues who badmouth her. I must say one of their colleagues is so annoying, I just wish he gets sacked ASAP. All those funny moments that Abeer & Raheel shared were really cute, it was nice seeing Abeer happy & Raheel going out of the way to make sure that she is happy. All the actors; Mansha Pasha, Amina Sheikh, Syed Jibran, Salman Saeed & Sami Khanare doing a wonderful job & the director has done justice to this script & the characters. Definitely looking forward to the next episode & yes, Tuesday seems way too far now. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Khudgarz!

Alif Allah Aur Insaan Episode 39 – Review!

Ohkay so, finally this drama is headed towards an end & I can’t tell how relieved I am but it is sad to say that the direction of this drama has now become a joke. Everything is being tackled in such a sloppy fashion that you just can’t believe it is the same drama which started off on such an amazing note.

Well, Nazneen & Taimur got divorced & now I have lost count of how many divorcees are in this drama. Let’s count again, so, Shahzeb, Basit, Taimur, Nazneen, Zimmal & Ali (Zimmal’s first husband), whoa, that many! To be honest, Nazneen & her divorces have become a joke & looks like she will be losing her sanity as well! Haye koi isay new kurta khareed de!

Roshni has not only grown suspicious towards Shaheer, she even went on to do a little investigation herself, let’s see what she comes up with!

Reena finally came clean & revealed everything about her relationship with Nawazish. What Nawazish did was so bizarre but then he got what he asked for, but then no one really paid heed to what Reena was saying. Even though Reena’s parents make an appearance way too often but they are being treated as fillers & nothing else.

So, Shahzeb’s mother thinks that he should get married to the girl he refused to help. Zimmal came in search of peace & found Shahzeb & his mother. After Zimmal stumbled across Shahzeb, I already had a feeling that they both will end up together. Hmmm interesting!

Anyways, I can’t wait for this drama to be over now. Please share your thoughts about this episode.

Lal Ishq Episodes 12,13,14 Review – Awesome

As always, these episodes of Lal Ishq were absolutely flawless. The characters are eccentric, difficult, confused and yet so relatable, so endearing. To be honest, for quite a long time, this is the only drama that keeps you occupied in a trance for its full duration. There is a genius at work behind it and thus all the actors are absolutely perfect in their characterization. I wonder why is it not getting more appreciation than all the silly ones out there who have no substance to offer.

So Ansa Mehrunnisa is still herself and both her brother and son are hurt but she is stuck in time where Bali’s death to avenge Hukum’s murder is the only thing that will make her happy. Her ego is sky high and she is more patriarchal than any male landlord could ever be. In her eyes, revenge is above all other relations, even those who who are her own flesh and blood.

The way all characters are entwined is just amazing. They all shot at eachother when none of them really wanted to. Yawar Kamal was pained to hurt Punar and vice versa but the grip of Hukum’s murder is so strong that it has overtaken all the good feelings of today.

Punar and Rameen have both felt attraction for eachother but the “mard ka bacha” is just so shy and humble when it comes to expressing her feelings whereas Rameen is the strong one who is enjoying the attention and also seeing Punar uncomfortable. Aabi Khan is just amazing as the loving, shy, obedient Mehr Punar who is pretending to be aggressive and revengeful to make his controlling mother happy. Every expression and dialogue he delivers is just flawless.

Bali and Jajji have finally reached truce. Till they had not met, they were both suspicious of eachother but when they met, had a vent out of pent up emotions by hitting eachother, they could connect on a very sentimental level. They saw that both of them felt immense love and care for Farhad and Rameen and understood eachother much better. Bali has agreed to let his kids keep on thinking of Jajji as Iqbal, their father. He felt it was a small price to pay for the sacrifices Jajji has done for his children and he is filled with gratitude. In his eyes, Zohra’s death has settled his score with the Mehrs and they have nothing more to do with him. Little does he know that they are still blood thirsty for him.

Mahi wants to delay her marriage because she thinks she can stop Punar from killing Bali and getting murdered by him or his men or get punished by the state for murder. Even though Mehrunnisa does not pay any heed to what Mahi or anyone in the household thinks for that matter, Mahi still wants to do everything she can to put an end to this saga of bloodshed and let her brother lead a normal life. She has convinced Rameen of her cause and we will see in the next episode if she can get her proper message across to Farhad well and whether he would support her in this decision or not.

Aangan Episode 10 Review – Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Ohkay so, it was yet another fun episode of Aangan with the focus on one issue – Aqdas’s proposal for Shaina. I think now that the introductory part is over & every character has gotten enough coverage to show their nature, everyone has settled down emotionally & things are pretty calm in Zaitoon Manzil these days!

Before anything else, I have to discuss the assumption that Zaitoon made about Hajra. The dual meaning conversation that they both had where Zaitoon was talking about a baby & Hajra was discussing about Aqdas’s proposal was so hilarious. Zaitoon’s naievty is super sweet, it just makes it so obvious that she is very simple minded but still she tries really hard to portray that she knows everyyyything. But I must say the mention of ’24 hours mai khushkhabri’ got Zaitoon confused too because no matter how simple she is, even she knew things aren’t this quick when it comes to this matter!!

Sadly Abba Jee was heart broken today. What he said about Shafiq complaining about him to Asim was sad to hear. He only wanted to guide his grandson but he got a reality check that no one is under his control anymore. The way the generation gap has been shown is brilliant. Abba Jee only wanted to convey what he felt but had no idea that he will get blocked because no one had the patience to listen to & understand his concerns!

Hajra got a bit too excited, therefore she told everyone everything based on her own assumptions. Even Shaina seemed a little excited because she knew that Aqdas is a nice guy. I loved the way Rubina & Laila were teasing Shaina. It was so good to see all of them coming together & looking forward to Faseeha’s arrival because they all wanted to be a part of Hajra’s happiness.

Even though Faseeha did put forth Aqdas’s proposal for Zoya but it was too obvious that she wasn’t too keen on it as she was judging Zoya for her one & only son & she didn’t really meet her standards. Everyone was not only taken aback but were shocked to hear what Faseeha had to say as no one saw that coming!

I once again loved how Shaina reasoned with Hajra & tried to put things into perspective. It was so beautiful that Shaina curbed her feelings & told Hajra to be happy for Zoya. I am sure things won’t be too smooth & there will be a lot of obstacles in the way & oh yes, the biggest obstacle would be getting Aalu & Anila’s permission.

I loved this episode & had a great time watching it. Even though every episode might focus on a thing or two but there are so many moments which make every episode wholesome & complete, like I loved the bonding of Hajra, Rubina & Laila over the kitchen table where they discussed how Zaitoon should be approached & informed about Aqdas’s proposal. Rubina’s neverending taunts directed at Zahid are amusing too, but sadly he doesn’t pay heed to what his wife is trying to convey. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable episode but I am looking forward to the next one as I want to see Zoya’s reaction. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Aangan.
