O Rangreza Episode 6 Review – Reality Check!

Ohkay so, the story took a massive twist with this episode, it was intense but real. Who would’ve thought that this drama would not only be a breath of fresh air but it will question the chauvinist mentality so openly. The way the message that has been embedded in this story is coming across, is not only interesting but it is something that actually does make you ponder about what the writer is trying to tell here. I love these sort of dramas where the message gets relayed without things becoming too preachy & the fact that the writer took the responsibility to show us the other side of the picture is just brilliant!

Sassi never would’ve imagined that the father that she idealized all her life would turn out to be the biggest hindrance in achieving her dreams. It was so obvious that she saw everything through Khayyam’s eyes & that is why, she ended up shaping her character in a way that she assumed would be approved by her father. Sadly, now when she is forced to wake up & smell the coffee that her father Khayyam Sani is not as unconventional & is just as typical as other men, she is shaken to the core because for her, it is like she is being told to re-live her entire life with different set of standards, different mind-set, different dreams, different aspirations, different ideology – only because the man she followed is not happy with her choices!

Finally, it felt like luck was on Qasim’s side & he was brought back into Mumtaz’s house, despite not wanting to. It was good to see the considerate side of Khayyam because he genuinely seemed concerned for Qasim & couldn’t really put two & two together as to why was Qasim sleeping at his shop. I love the subtlety of Qasim’s character, like he is always just so engrossed in his own thoughts but is still far more aware of what those who love him, expect from him. Qasim can’t take Sassi out of his mind but just because Mumtaz has said no, he can’t think beyond that & he wouldn’t even try to change or influence Mumtaz’s decision. I loved when Qasim came back he was expecting a warm welcome from Sassi, but just when he didn’t get it, he was clearly upset. It is interesting how Sassi brings out this different side to Qasim without him even realizing because he is always just so calm & composed but when it comes to Sassi or anything related to her, it seems that he is under a spell; with no control over himself & his emotions whatsoever. The way Qasim snapped at his colleague went to show that he just can not contain his emotions if there’s anything that has to do with Sassi, yes, when he is in front of her, he really can be calm without showing her the signs of the storm brewing inside him!

So, Sassi finally got to channel out her anger & her frustration because she thought it was a high time she should tell Khayyam what was bothering her & why. It was so realistic that Sassi targeted Sonia Jahan’s photos in Khayyam’s room because she knew they were like his Achilles Heel & it would hurt him the most, probably just as much as she was hurt. Khayyam actually thought that he would play the typical dad with no-means-no attitude & it will work on Sassi but she got him familiar with the truth in such a way that even Khayyam couldn’t imagine. I loved the fact that Sassi didn’t tell Khayyam directly that his fixation with Sonia Jahan was what got her fascinated by her personality too, she in fact brought in Mumtaz to tell her father about his double standards. Every single word that came from Sassi was based on the bitter reality that Khayyam himself was oblivious of & probably the one who is so good with words was left speechless because the girl standing in front of him, confronting him, looking him into his eyes had a valid point & there was nothing that Khayyam could say that would change the truth that he was a hypocrite.

To be honest, I actually thought that Mumtaz would understand Sassi, especially after the stand that she took for her but the way Mumtaz went to console Khayyam saying that he wasn’t at fault made me feel like I lost quite a lot of sympathy that I had for her because honestly, she has inflicted this upon herself & since she doesn’t see anything wrong with the way Khayyam treats her, then there’s no point in seeing her as a victim. I feel if Khayyam is a wrong influence on Sassi, then so is Mumtaz because she showed Sassi what a wife should not be, how a mother should not be & most importantly, what a woman should not be – hopeless, clueless, with no control & zero self-respect. I always thought that it was Khayyam who influenced Sassi’s behavior towards his mother, which actually is true but then seeing how Mumtaz behaved I felt she herself has left quite an impression on Sassi, an impression enough to teach her that no woman should become a doormat like Mumtaz. So, this is what Sassi conveyed to Khayyam & even Mumtaz but if only they both could understand their faults in stead of blaming it on someone else like Khayyam did or brushing it under the carpet like Mumtaz!

Qasim finally tried to have a conversation with Sassi but since she is so not in the right place emotionally, she even saw Khayyam’s shadow in Qasim. Who would’ve thought that the girl who wanted her partner to be like Khayyam & the one who didn’t see Qasim as a man enough like Khayyam, would be so shaken by what she experienced that just the faintest similarity that too being a result of her own assumption would make her turn away from someone like Qasim who has been her support for such a long time. Sassi really is not getting what turn her life has taken & she is leaving no stone unturned to make it obvious to everyone around her, thanks to Khayyam that along with so many other things, he taught her consistency as well!

I so wanted to know what Khayyam’s answer to Sonia Jahan’s question was but they left it for now, however even after hearing so much from Sassi, Khayyam just stood there looking at Sonia’s performance without batting an eyelid as if this was his birth right & it had nothing to be ashamed of. I actually felt like banging Khayyam’s head on the wall when he once again blamed Mumtaz for turning Sassi away from him, like seriously, this man is literally blind to his own faults, to such an extent that even after so much has happened & the havoc that Sassi has created, all he could deduce out of it was that everything happened because of Mumtaz & she turned Sassi against him? It is shocking that even such a clear cut reality check from Sassi couldn’t make him think about his own faults, but I really wish he goes through something so huge that would actually make him realize how wrong he has been, probably all his life!

Overall, this episode was brilliant, I just couldn’t keep my eyes off the screen as the performances were outstanding & everything was just so intense.

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.

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

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!
