Sanam Episode 05 Review – #Jahil #Psycho #Aurat

Sanam Episode 05 Review – #Jahil #Psycho #Aurat

Ohkay so, things went bad for Harib in this episode but at least he had a support of Shabnam & Aan & I mean during such a rough patch in his life, what else could he ask for when Shabnam was going out of the way to cook Alu Gosht for him. I like the fact that as the episodes are passing by, we’re getting to know the dishes that make Harib’s heart skip a beat; first Anda Paratha Roll & now Alu Gosht, but I will give credit to Shabnam for being so kindhearted to be taking care of a stranger’s taste buds so well!

Just when Aila decided to come back, she spotted Aan & Harib together that too in Harib’s home & that’s when her fears were confirmed that Harib was cheating on her. I know Aila is being a nightmare for Harib & they have used all the episodes so far to establish the fact that Aila is the ‘worst’ biwi that has ever walked on the face of the Earth but somehow, I don’t see her in that light & the reason behind me not feeling that about Aila is the ‘declaration’ of her character being bipolar. I am sure if they had kept the fancy word like ‘bipolar’ aside & had then worked on showing Harib as mazloom & Aila as zalim, I would’ve been the first one hating Aila’s character completely & mentioning it again & again that she is a #psycho#jahil #aurat, but when they hinted on the fact that she has some psychological issues & she can’t really control herself, then they themselves gave Aila’s attitude a complete justification & a perfect excuse to her for her weird behavior. This is exactly why I don’t see Aila as a culprit because she herself is a victim. Now when I see how the writer & the director are leaving no stone unturned in making Aila look like the ultimate villain, I feel disgusted because they are trying to stir some sympathy for Harib, whereas their approach should’ve been entirely different in tackling Aila’s character. When I see Aila reacting at such an extreme level, in stead of hating her, I feel bad for her because she is dealing with a disorder that hinders her from behaving normally & this is what the writer & the director should’ve tried to achieve too. You can’t have it both ways where first you say someone is bipolar & then you make them look completely abnormal & negative. I am sure if they had worked with either one of the aspects, things wouldn’t have been so confusing & I am sure the viewers then must’ve sympathized with Harib to such a level that they themselves would’ve presented him a ‘Biryani ki Daig’along with Anda Paratha Roll & Alu Gosht ka Salan!

Aila left & called Shehroz & Shehroz went out of the way to inform Harib so that at least he could talk things out but what’s amusing is that Harib was too focused on looking like a bechara that he completely missed the oddness in Shehroz’s behavior. Even when Harib was around, Shehroz was just being too candid with Aila & he wasn’t doing anything to curb their differences but Harib didn’t notice anything at all? Well, Aan & Shabnam came to Harib’s rescue & they couldn’t stop sympathizing with him, but that’s given when the guy tells you his side of the story & completely forgets to tell you that his wife is not a buri biwi, but she is just a victim of a psychological disorder. The way Shabnam discussed how Aila should’ve taken care of her ‘household’ & her ‘husband’, it was so obvious that the writer was trying hard to imply that Aila was the culprit & she should not be sympathized with because she couldn’t take care of her husband & his home, including his breakfast, lunch & dinner! Anyways, Aan tried to calm Harib down & then Shabnam took the matters in her hand & she decided that she will go to Aila herself & request her to come back which was quite sweet but what happened later shook her badly. Aila misbehaved with Shabnam & Harib to such an extent that she ended up threatening him with a divorce after placing a slap on his cheek.
*smiling sheepishly*

Since Harib is known for depending on outsiders to solve his marital issues, then I am not sure what is stopping him from speaking to Aila’s mother directly? Harib has involved Shehroz, he has also involved Aan & Shabnam, so I am sure it wouldn’t have hurt him if he had decided to rely on 1 more person, who by the way is far more closer to Aila & knows her better than the rest I believe. Well, honestly speaking, I hate the way the writer has sprinkled all the negative traits in Aila’s character like she is irresponsible, she is negative, she is disrespectful, she doubts her husband, she is ill-mannered, she doesn’t know how to talk to her elders, she flirts with her husband’s friend, she beats her husband up & most importantly she doesn’t know how to cook, like is there anything else left? I am sure if there was an award for the worst person that has walked on the face of the Earth, then Aila would’ve been an undisputed winner & in her winning speech she would’ve given the entire credit to Mona Haseeb, since she was a little too meherbaan on Aila!

Things are going to get uglier in the episodes to come & I am sure Harib & Aila will part ways because Aila is not ready to budge & sadly, Harib forgot to take her to the psychiatrist. I am not sure why the psychiatrist was hired for 2 scenes where he miraculously diagnosed Aila’s condition & left, whereas he should’ve been an important character in this drama because he would’ve helped Aila in dealing with her issues & snapping out of it to some extent but oh well, itna time kiss writer aur director ke pass hai, hai na? Well, I must say, Hareem Farooq totally nailed her performance in this episode, she was totally convincing as Aila, someone who herself had no idea why she was behaving a certain way but was so angry to be bothered about her attitude. Maya Ali as Aan did a fairly decent job but the one who stole the show once again was Hina Bayat. I love how much warmth she had added in her character like every time you see her, she depicts the word ‘Ammi’ so beautifully by being a woman who deals with so many pressures single-handedly with a smile on her face, selflessly goes out of the way to make things right & then takes pride in feeding her children, like if there’s one character that has been written perfectly, it is the character of Shabnam & Hina Bayat made it a little more perfect with her convincing acting. I really like the bond Aan & Shabnam share, it is actually quite fun to see Shabnam embarrassing Aan & then Aan leaving no opportunity of giving back to her. The dialogue ‘aa gain na puranay mohallay ki zuban pe’ was hilarious & then what made it even better was Shabnam’s response, lol! That particular expression where Aan was amused at her mother still she was trying to keep a straight face because she was tensed for Harib was done so well by Maya Ali. Anyways, let’s see what do they have in store for us next week. Please share your thoughts about this bechargi-filled episode of Sanam.

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.
