Sanam Episode 06 Review – Teri Kasam Anday Parathay Ki Buuu!

Sanam Episode 06 Review – Teri Kasam Anday Parathay Ki Buuu! 2

ZZZZzzzzzZzzzz….Oh! Sorry, I just woke up because this episode of Sanam served as a lullaby & put me to sleep. Ohkay so, shuru karain? LOL! Even though I knew that this drama didn’t have much to offer but I never knew that it wouldn’t even have some sense & logic to offer too. After watching this episode, I was reminded of Sallahudin’s mother’s comment; ‘in logon ka koi deen emaan hai bhi ya nahi’?

The moment Shehroz realized that his frankness with Aila was going to cost him his job, he returned to his senses & immediately forced himself to see Aila as his Bhabhi. All of a sudden Shehroz realized that he couldn’t deceive his langoti yaarbecause of sir-phiri Aila. Honestly speaking, I will thank Shehroz for making me laugh at his chicken-ness which made him realize that he was nothing without the financial support of Harib. The entire time Shehroz was pledging his loyalty to Harib by calling Aila his Bhabhi repeatedly, I was recalling all those times when he flirted with Aila shamelessly & all those satyrical glances he gave at her which clearly indicated his evil intentions. I must say, the writer really has left a lot on the viewer’s imagination, where she expects the viewers to understand these characters without doing any work on her part & without even establishing their characters properly. In the initial episodes, we were clearly told that Shehroz was anything but a loyal friend but now the bromance between Harib & Shehroz was being pushed to the limit to show that Harib meant everything to Shehroz.

I have a business plan for Shabnam & Aan & I am sure they will make big bucks if they will follow my advice. Shabnam should open a catering business & Aan can become a food deliverer & while she is at it, she can charge a few extra bucks for fetching couriers, letters & newspapers for her clients too. Since Aan is taking her Nashta delivery job so seriously while being a Daakiya too, I am sure Allah will put a lot of Barkat in this business seeing Shabnam & Aan’s sincerity & devotion in feeding people. Just when I was about to doze off, Harib made me laugh out loud at his ‘bohat bhook lag rahi thi’, like seriously, in the very first episode when Harib made brekkie for Aila, we learned the fact that Harib is a decent cook, so why has he forgotten the art of culinary ever since Shabnam & Aan have become meherbaan at him?

All this while, I was blaming Mona Haseeb for not doing justice to Aila’s psychological issues by completely forgetting about them, but she proved me wrong by ‘slightly’ hinting about the medication & psychiatric sessions that Aila needs, haha, like they waste so many episodes on bickering & bechargi but when it comes to something meaningful, they literally cover it in a dilogue or two. What a great way of dealing with an issue when you show nothing about it, do not give it a proper coverage & just when things are about to fall apart & just to prove how bighearted bechara Harib is, you make him say ke Aila Jaan, apni dawai yaad se khana aur pagal khanay bhi yaad se chali jana. This dialogue showed that this drama did include the fact that Aila has some psychological issues, so in stead of turning this story into a marital war & in stead of keeping the pace so fast, why didn’t they give a proper coverage to bipolar disorder by showing that Harib himself took Aila to the shrink & focused on understanding her behavior & issues himself too? Like they could’ve taken some time in developing misunderstandings between them but they just fast forwarded everything. It seems like such a wasted opportunity & also the entire bipolar thingy seems like an after thought because the director was in a hurry to throw Aila out of Harib’s life so that Harib could enjoy Anda Parathas without any mental pressure.

Aan learned the truth that Aila was seeking divorce from Harib & she blamed herself for it which was a right thinking on her part but then she put a lid on it quite easily & announced that both Aan & Shabnam should take care of Harib, meaning they should make him some more Andas Parathas, like seriously? I never knew that such a ‘seedhi saadhi’ Aan who has such a bright future ahead of her will entangle herself in the worry of her parosi’s parathas, lol. Like just imagine, from now on, Aan’s entire routine will be revolving around Harib’s nashta, where she will make sure to sleep early, so that she can wake up before the sunrise, iron her clothes, straighten her hair, clip in some weirdly textured extensions, put some makeup on to show up at his doorstep on time with a tray of weird smelling Anda Paratha & god forbid if Harib will spill the oil or yolk on himself, she will do his laundry too. In the initial episodes, they showed that Aan barely had time & she was always running late for office, so much so that Shabnam had to run behind her holding a brekkie tray, but seems like Aan has started waking up before Tahajjud so that she can spend enough time with Harib without even worrying about getting late from her office. I must say, even though I love Shabnam’s character & even though she was quite liberal, I still find it odd that she is allowing Aan to spend time with Harib, that too when he is going through a rough patch in his life, it’s like she herself is hoping for Harib & Aan to cook something together, haha!!! Bhai Harib munnay ko nashta karana hai to apne ghar pe karwao na apni nazron ke samne, ye Aan ko akele bhejne ki kya tukk hai?I feel this way because we know that Shabnam was looking for a decent proposal for Aan but now she seems a little too relaxed & laid back? Kyun jee!?!?!

I must say Aan was introduced as a very wise character but even she forced me to remember the infamous dialogue of Sallahuddin’s mother because at one hand she was crying buckets blaming herself for the divorce & on the other she was visiting Harib’s place as if it was her own home. Why didn’t Aan think for a second that may be Aila decided to come back so she shouldn’t just barge into Harib’s home so casually? Harib to choro abb to Shehroz ko bhi Anday Parathay ki adat dalay lagi hai Aan, haha! I was never a fan of Anda Paratha combination but thanks to Sanam-makers, I will detest it for the rest of my life!!!

This episode reinforced the importance of smartphones in our lives. It showed how one bro was manaofying his rootha hua bro, using the telephone credit that he was able to load in his phone because of the rootha hua brother’s meherbaani. It also showed us many features like how one can ignore phone calls & how unwanted messages can be deleted. To be honest I enjoyed watching the tantrums Harib was throwing over Shehroz’s phone calls & text messages, only to prove his bechargi in the next scene by opening the door for him to stay at his place, haha! To be honest, these characters have no personality whatsoever, they don’t have a mind, they don’t have a stand, they have nothing, which brings me to a point that the writer has no writing skills & that is why, this entire drama is so weak in terms of screenplay!!!

Overall, this episode was filled with subliminal humor. I had a good laugh watching Aila ke sataye hue Harib & Shehroz with their pain stricken faces, where Harib was dukhon ka mara hua & Shehroz was Aila se shadi ke khayal se ghabraya hua. I had a good laugh seeing Aan hovering around Harib like a food-fairy. Seriously girl, get your act together & stop worrying about Harib’s calorie count. Aila is fun, like seriously, at least she is someone who has a personality & is consistent. Aila might be negative but at least she is not a lota. The preview of the next episode suggested that Aan’s zid of thoosofying food in Harib’s mouth will cause more troubles for him because Aila’s parents will spot both of them together. I must say Aan’s dhitai & besharmi is commendable, like she is forcing herself into his life so much that he can’t even think of living a day without her anda paratha…hmmmmmm, strategy aur tact bohat acha hai waisay. Also, Aan was introduced with a braid & a dupatta, like it was good to see a confident educated girl still being in touch with her roots but ever since she has allotted a duty of feeding food to Harib to herself, her dupatta has slipped from her head & her braid has untied itself automatically, hmmmmmmmmm, bohat nazuk surat e haal hai. Anyways, please share your thoughts about this food filled episode of Sanam.

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!
