Review Kathputli Episode 13 & 14 – A Very Positive Message!

Review Kathputli Episode 13 & 14 – A Very Positive Message!

 

Ohkay so, these past two episodes of Kathputli were thoroughly enjoyable. I am glad that even though a few of the things don’t make much sense & have been coaxed, the rest of it is interesting enough to make the episodes a good watch. This drama sends out a lot of good messages & has been tackled decently by the director. I do however feel that a few scenes & the coverage of some of the characters could’ve been omitted because it doesn’t really add much to the story but other than that, everything in this drama is working for me.

It is absolutely heart warming how Mehru has not only sticked with her decision of taking care of Ahad’s father, but she has also accepted him as her own father too because everything that she does for him comes straight from her heart. Mehru didn’t mind what Ahad said in agitation because she knew that Ahad was quite tensed about his father, therefore she decided to ignore what he said. This is what I love about Mehru’s character & personality the most, she is not amazloom aurat & she most certainly is defensive enough to take a stand for herself when she sees that she is being mistreated, but when the situation arises, she lets go of a lot of things as she understands the complexity & intricacy of the situation, which makes her a very strong woman mentally. Quite conveniently, Mehru could’ve blown things out of proportion & she could’ve made a fuss about Ahad being rude or she could’ve blamed Ahad’s father for being rigid, but she didn’t do any of that as she knew that it was just a misunderstanding which can be subsided, but what was more important at that point was to keep things normal & that’s what a wise person would also do.

I really like how that characters are evolving in this drama. Yes, there are a few characters who’re stuck in a rut & choose not to budge, but the characters that make this drama worthwhile are the one’s that are evolving for all the right reasons. Ahad’s father was quite bitter & negative & didn’t leave a good first impression, but he depicts how a little bit of love, care & attention changes someone’s heart & personality completely. Ahad’s father; who used to be such a rigid person has now turned out to be someone who not only appreciates what Ahad & Mehru do for him, but has become quite understanding in the matters concerning them, where he encourages them to spend time together. I really liked how Ahad’s father chose to be a bigger person & admit his mistakes because he saw how Ahad was being harsh on Mehru & how Mehru was tolerating everything silently.

The way Ahad dealt with the entire situation was actually quite sweet. I love how all these characters are shown to be so accommodating & easy going that they don’t mind accepting when they are at fault. The moment Ahad heard the truth from his father, he realized that he was not wrong in judging Mehru, he also went overboard in holding her responsible for everything without thinking things through, that is why he chose to gift her some flowers, to break the ice & start afresh. We hardly get to see such characters who extend such gestures towards their spouses to make things right & we ‘never’ get to see such husbands who go out of the way to make their ‘wives’ happy. What Ahad did was actually quite sweet where he wanted to make things right & also appreciate Mehru for all the things that she was doing.

I thoroughly enjoy seeing the bonding that Ahad, Ahad’s Father & Mehru share with each other, it’s like all of a sudden, they have become one happy family that understands each other & believes in empowering each other emotionally. I loved everything that Mehru said to Ahad about how she won’t allow anyone to mistreat her anymore. Going by the circumstances Mehru went through & seeing how she was always oppressed by her brothers, the writer could’ve conveniently used those things to turn Mehru into a bechari who chose to accept mistreatment & oppression as her fate, but Faiza Iftikhar gave us something entirely different by showing us a girl who learned how to protect herself using all her bitter experiences as an example & who chose to put her respect ahead of everything else. Very easily, Mehru could’ve made herself understand that this is what life was going to offer to her but it is amazing how even though things became easier for her after she got married to Ahad, Mehru chose not to compromise on her pride, dignity & respect. Mehru has clearly told Ahad that she wants to be respected because she respects her self & she doesn’t want mistreatment because she has endured that enough already. I like how Ahad also understands Mehru & he has made a promise that he won’t do anything that will upset her. For me, that is something absolutely beautiful!!!

Well, Umair must be doing a victory dance because his attempts of causing a rift between Saira & Ehtasham didn’t go to waste. I find it amusing how Umair thinks he’s a savior & Saira needs his back. Saira is another beautiful & strong character & her politeness & honesty are her strengths, so to see Umair moving around like a headless chicken worrying about his sister is completely unjustified & unnecessary. Saira clearly told Umair how things roll differently in Ehtashaam’s house, so it is actually quite annoying that in stead of understanding, Umair is causing more troubles for Saira. I totally feel that Saira is mentally & emotionally very strong & she most certainly knows how to deal with her own baggage her way, but the interference of Umair is taking that away from her, which is definitely not needed. Umair at one hand tries to portray that he cares about Saira a lot but on the other hand, he himself fails to understand that everything he says or does doesn’t help Saira at all. Saira on her own is a very strong girl & she doesn’t need an intruder like Umair to fight her battles for her, so I wish Umair understands his position & stop being a pain for Saira. I most certainly believe that the character of Umair has been given unnecessary coverage in this drama & his presence doesn’t really work for me at all. He is coming across as a male version of‘phappay kutni’ & that doesn’t suit a guy of that age at all because guys don’t really get into nitty gritty of their sisters’ personal lives, so his concerns are forced & unjustified!!!

Ehtashaam is still as arrogant as he is & once again, I will blame Zeenat for that. Every single time I see Zeenat’s character blurting out things in Ehtashaam’s favor where she indirectly tells Saira to accept his mistreatment as her fate, I feel like throwing my TV out of the window. She is so unreasonable & her fear & oppression is self imposed. Zeenat needs to understand that she is a mother & she can control everything, but she chooses to be come a chicken in front of Ehtashaam, that is why Ehtashaam has turned out to be this way & he gets away with everything. All the things Zeenat said to Saira about accepting Ehtashaam’s attitude & nature without questioning him were so bizarre. I wish the character of Zeenat evolves too. Zeenat has lost her own daughter because of Ehtashaam & it is actually quite infuriating that despite knowing about the reality & in stead of confronting Ehtashaam, she is choosing to give him leeway again & again by overlooking his past & present mistakes. Looks like Zeenat will happily lose Saira too but she will choose not to confront Ehtashaam for his irrationality!!!

Amna’s interest in Mehru’s life is another thing that has been coaxed, also, as if Amna wasn’t enough that even Shiraz has become fixated with his neighbors. I would hate to see things becoming ugly & stressful between Ahad & Mehru because after a lot of suffering, they both have found their comfort zones & they are now at a happy place together, where Ahad has already fallen in love with Mehru & Mehru is started to warm up to him, but seems like Shiraz won’t be able to contain himself & he will intrude in Mehru’s life without her consent. I hope to see Mehru & Ahad dealing with Mehru’s past together as a team that too with maturity because that is what is needed. I really hope that Ahad doesn’t back out in a hope to unite Mehru & Shiraz.

Overall, I really really enjoyed watching the last two episodes of Kathputli. There were so many moments that were heart-warming like Mehru & Ahad’s father having a heart-to-heart conversation, also like Ahad giving flowers to Mehru & promising to never hurt her again. There were a few cringe-worthy things that happened too like Saira getting slapped without a reason because that thing could have been & should have been avoided. Another cringe-worthy thing, character & actor in this drama is Umair, his presence is so not required & the acting of the actor make things equally worse. I really really like how the writer has written the characters of Mehru, Ahad, Ahad’s father & Saira, they make this drama really interesting to watch. Sanam Chaudhry is such a brilliant actress & I love how her eyes speak. Farhan Ahmed Malhi has done a brilliant job as Ahad too & I really like the chemistry & the element of respect between the characters of Mehru & Ahad. Shiraz & Amna are also just a couple of fillers who are going to be used to drag the drama but I wish the director doesn’t rely much on them because they’re not appealing enough. Anyways, please share your thoughts about these two episodes of Kathputli.

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.
