Gurya Meri 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 Gurya Meri Episodes 1 & 2 that the only reason I tuned into this show was the writer

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Absolutely loved drama serial Nibah and was waiting for another drama written by Radain Shah. Also

Right now, those dramas which highlight either Gurya Meri 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 Gurya Meri will also be focusing on the person responsible for this horrific act.

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 Gurya Meri 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 Gurya Meri that the makers will be able to do justice to the story.

 

 

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.Gurya Meri Abida looks up to and adores the new bride and Safeena also likes her.

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 Gurya Meri 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.

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 t

o the point because they give away a little too much!

Shayyad is getting more interesting with every passing episode

Shayyad is getting more interesting with every passing episode and although some of the scenes in tonight’s episode

were difficult to execute but the director managed to translate them on screen without making them look too awkward.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Like most of the other dramas written by Faiza Iftikhar this one too is unpredictable, convincing as well as realistic.

I truly appreciate the fact that the writer did not make Saad an ultimate bechara although his character is such

that he would have gained a lot of sympathies from the viewers had his character not taken the turn it took recently.

The fact however is that the main reason why his character is more appealing than ever now is that he isn’t perfect.

The evil and desperate plans he keeps on thinking about intentionally and unintentionally make it easier for

the viewers to connect to his character.

Right from the first episode Saad’s character has held my interest and even now his character keeps me guessing.

Uzair Jawal was absolutely remarkable in tonight’s episode and overall too he has done justice to his character.

Tonight’s episode covered a great deal from light moments which covered the marriage functions to serious

developments like Saad getting even more desperate and Hani sensing Saad’s true feelings for her.

This episode showed that Saad isn’t even trying anymore to keep faces which is why when he went to take Salar’s measurements,

he continued to say things which will put him off. Salar’s reaction showed that

he was quite capable of controlling his anger if it suited his needs.

Salar is also desperate to have Hani in his life but for completely different reasons.

Apart from being controlling and rude, Salar is also very calculating.

We have seen quite a few men like Salar in our dramas, characters

who only reveal their true identity after marriage but it isn’t very often that the viewers are shown the mindset of a man like him on screen.

He gets angry at a lot of things but only shows his anger if he feels that the situation is right.

The intensity of his anger is also measured by the circumstances. Nauman Ijaz is the king of expressions,

no matter what role he is playing, he always manages to impress the audience.

He was a brilliant choice for playing this role. Hani and Saad’s scenes together in

the first half of this episode once again showed the difference between their feelings for each other and

the second half covered the way Hani felt after realizing how Saad actually felt about her.

Even though so far Sadia Khan looks much better than she acts but in this episode in particular

the scenes were written and directed so well that her average performance could easily have been overlooked.

Mahpara’s character so far doesn’t have a lot to offer because her scenes always show how left out and betrayed

she feels.

The preview of the next episode was really enticing and well put together.

Will Saad do something extreme to stop this marriage or will Hani end up blaming him for something he has not done?

The best part of this drama right now is that it is impossible to predict what is going to happen next!

Pukaar Last Episode Review – A Happy Ending!

Pukaar Last Episode Review

Awww the last episode of Pukaar was sweet   I liked the way everything was addressed.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

I am glad that despite the extremely slow pace   the over dosage of flashbacks

One of the best things of this episode was an end that Zamani met 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.

Sultan assured Samra that Qasim belonged to her

where their urge to get settled again is suppressed & they are expected to become the torch bearer of family’s dignity

Everything that Laali did was basically a reflection of her jealousy against Samra

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.

Finally  Samra said it.

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.

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.

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 Pakistani Drama

These two episodes Meri Gurya Episode 3 & 4 gave further insight into the personalities of all the central characters and their relationships with each other.

Meri Gurya Episode 3 & 4.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

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.

Episode 4.

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,

Meri Gurya Episode 3 & 4 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

They 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.

Played with girls.

we 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.

Hope

All his interactions with Abida were terribly frightening and when Abida went missing Meri Gurya Episode 3 & 4 found myself hoping that she was still alive.

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.

Although Safeena wanted Dabeer to divorce her whenever he could but now

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,

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.

How many of you watched these latest episodes of Meri Gurya? Do share your thoughts about it.

Ishq Tamasha Episode 18 Review-Revenge Begins!

Ishq Tamasha

RUSHNA IS SUPER EVIL

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

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. Ishq Tamasha 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,Ishq Tamasha, Mirha’s situation just reminded me of this nursery rhyme. She just started dreaming about her saviour (kidnapper)  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.

Palwasha episode is super-weird

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.  Hopefully, in the next few episodes, we could see her regretting her attitude.http://reviewpk.com/grill-hut-wapda-town-review/

The whole Palwasha episode is super-weird. . Aqeela really needs to take a hold of her daughters. They are literally messing up the balance everywhere.
