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.

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!
