O Rangreza Episode 4 Review – Perfection!

Ohkay so, another week, another brilliant episode of O Rangreza. I love how the layers from each & every character are still being lifted to give us more & more insight into their minds & souls. I must say if there’s one word that I would use to describe this drama, it would be mesmerizing, like every single aspect about this drama is on another level, be it in terms of writing or direction or art direction & even acting, it is rare to find perfection of this sort in our dramas these days & I am glad O Rangreza is proving out to be such a treat for the viewers who tune to it!

I love how the writer makes sure to shift the focus on different characters in different episodes, it maintains the novelty even in the middle of story where the viewers might think they have understood everything about the characters. This time around, the focus was on Mumtaz & also on Sassi. I feel for Mumtaz a lot, I most certainly do, but then again, like I said last week, I am not sure how long I’d be able to feel for her especially seeing how she doesn’t believe in doing anything to change things around her. There was a lot of focus on Sassi & Mumtaz’s relationship as well where time & again Mumtaz was reminded of where she stands in Sassi’s life!

Since Sassi is so not used to listen to her mother, I didn’t really feel that there was a need for Sassi to lie to her that she was going to see her friend when she was actually going to visit Sonia Jahan’s place. Sassi is used to ignoring what Mumtaz says plus when she had already made up her mind, she could’ve told Mumtaz honestly where she was going because Sassi is upfront, honest & straight forward. Anyways, Sonia Jahan steered Sassi’s thought towards Qasim in a way that even Sassi couldn’t decipher for now. Sassi has always seen Qasim as her ‘buddy’ who she can boss around easily that is why it seemed like a news to her when Sonia said that there was something special between them.

I enjoyed the conversation that Sonia & Sassi had. Even though Sassi is in an awe of Sonia & she is too young to read between the lines but I have a feeling that Sonia will make Sassi familiar with a lot of aspects of men & their mentality that Sassi hasn’t really paid attention to. The first lecture that Sassi got was about not falling for a man because of his looks, it was too obvious that Sonia Jahan was sharing her own bitter experience of a failed relationship with Sassi, that is why she not only seemed disturbed but depressed as well. Even though Sassi is not too mature to understand what Sonia is sharing with her at this stage, but since she pays heed to everything that Sonia says, I am sure Sassi will start grasping all these things in her subconscious slowly & will be able to relate to everything later!

I liked how Sassi went to see Qasim, like she obviously misses him & but is too stern to admit that therefore it was her way of seeing him & making sure if he was doing alright. This is what I love about Qasim & Sassi’s relationship the most, like it is unconventional & unique, there’s nothing typical about it, even though the way Qasim smiles at her & lets her know that he is happy, Sassi never reciprocates those emotions & that’s what makes everything even more interesting. There was no need for Sassi to come & threaten Qasim but she just came because just like everyone else, even she was missing him.

So, Qasim hasn’t gone to his uncle’s place, he doesn’t want to burden him & then he is also hiding the fact that he is staying in his shop because he doesn’t want to bother Mammo either. I love how obedient Qasim is to Mumtaz, at least there is someone who acknowledges her & gives her some right to have an authority over. We can see that Mumtaz does try her hands on having some sort of power or control but it only works on Qasim & not anyone else, including her own daughter. I think Mumtaz’s conversation with Khayyam regarding Sassi was another way of showcasing how helpless she feels in front of both her husband & her daughter. Mumtaz can see that Sassi is getting a bit too independent for her & even Khayyam’s liking, that is why she wanted to inform Khayyam to at least do something because she is well aware of the fact that the moment Sassi will commit some mistake, Khayyam will blame Mumtaz the most. Even though Mumtaz tries but there’s always this defeat in her approach which shows that she has given up even before seeing the results of her attempts & that I think is the actual reason why everyone walks all over her because she herself is not confident enough!

Oh well, Sonia Jahan spoke about Khayyam turning her into a puppet whereas she doesn’t know that Khayyam is doing everything to qualify as her stooge himself. Khayyam went to see Qasim only because Sonia told him to & not only that, he also rewarded Qasim on securing 2nd position because this is what Sonia said as well. It is demeaning how right in front of Mumtaz, Khayyam shows this side of his that would be ideal for his wife, like he obeys & listens to Sonia Jahan whereas this is how he should be in his marital relationship. It shows that Khayyam is perfectly capable of being a good husband but just because he has no interest in Mumtaz, he doesn’t put much effort rather he doesn’t even bother!

Another conversation, another reason for Sassi to think outside the box. Sonia once again subliminally told how she was just an illusion & just like all the other men, even Sassi saw her as that without trying to get deeper into her existence to see & understand who Sonia Jahan actually is. I am actually interested to see how & when Sassi will start analyzing the bittersweet truths that Sonia has whispered in her ears over these conversations, like Sassi has met her plenty of times to get over with the ‘star-struck’ phase, now she needs to get over that in order to understand Sonia & her struggles.

Overall, this episode was amazing & I had a great time watching it. I loved the tiff Sonia’s Manager & Sassi had & how Sassi settled the score. I am sure there’s going to be more to this tiff & I am definitely looking forward to it. Oh well, I loved loved loved the dream sequence of Qasim & Sassi, the chemistry between  was so strong in that particular scene, it was just beautifully & perfectly portrayed. I just love the usage of the OST, I think the editors & the sound engineers should be commended for using this song so intelligently, it just ties everything together in a very unique way, it’s like they know that the song is something else but haven’t overused it or over-relied on it. The direction keeps on getting better & better & the same can be said about the performances too. I must commend all the actors especially Irsa Ghazal,Sajal Ali for taking their performances a notch higher every single time. Sana Fakhar is very graceful & elegant as Sonia Jahan, she has given her 100% as well & it is a treat to watch her. After watching the preview of the next episode, I just can’t wait for the next episode, looks like this will be the first time when Sassi’s bubble will burst where she thinks her father as an ideal man who believes in giving women a complete ‘freedom’ that they desire & require. Please share your thoughts about this beautiful episode of O Rangreza.

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.
