Sanam Episode 15 Review – Saday Teen Aurtain, Saday Teen Kahaniyaan!

Sanam Episode 15 Review – Saday Teen Aurtain, Saday Teen Kahaniyaan!

Ohkay so, let me be completely honest with you guys, when the episode began I actually started liking what I was watching because the first half of the episode all of a sudden started making sense to me & I felt may be this was the time when Osman Khalid Butt took over the script as I remember someone told me that he was re-writing the last few episodes of Sanam to give a proper closure to everything, so I actually thought that may be this episode was written by him or something & I even thought that I will title this episode as ‘fairly decent’ but sense, logic & all that jazz was short-lived, rather it lived till the commercial break swooped in & ruined everything. The second half of the episode was not only nonsensical but it was so boring that comparatively looking at the ceiling of my humble abode seemed far more interesting than what was happening on my TV Screen!

Harib is not only a bechara but he is a poster child of ‘haye Allah Jee, mai kya karoon’, looks like this is Harib’s pet question where he keeps on repeating it as he is always just so clueless. I am wondering why aren’t all the parathas & that beautifully cooked food working for him because his mind seems to be shrinking with each passing episode. I have yet to see an episode where Harib took a stand & a clear one at that, because where Harib should have thrown Shehroz out of his life after how he created the situation to get Harib & Aila divorced, also how he created all the misunderstandings between them, we now see Harib seeking help & advice from the same Shehroz who himself is a patient suffering from short term memory loss, where he forgets who he was supporting just 5 minutes ago!

Anyways, in the initial part of the episode, I did understand Harib’s concerns & for that matter I felt that the build up was actually quite nice where Harib was confused & he was overthinking, as he was worried that people will once again misunderstand his concerns for Aan as his love for her & despite loving her, he didn’t want to validate the rumors that people were spreading about them as he also didn’t want to put a dent on Aan’s image. Even though I also believed that Harib should’ve told everything to Aan the moment he saw how she confronted Farhan for the way he mistreated Harib, but still I could understand Harib’s thought process because he was being way too cautious considering the fragility of Shabnam’s health. At that point I was like it is getting interesting that things are building up on the basis of assumptions & it will take one final conversation where Harib & Aan will spill the beans by telling each other what they feel about Farhan & this entire engagement scenario but that thing was brushed under the carpet as the writer all of a sudden remembered that she had an XS-sized Daadi Amman to take the story forward in the most hideous manner ever known to the drama buffs!

Just when the writers start relying heavily on the child artists or smally packaged Dadi Ammans, that’s when you know that the writer was touching new heights of desperation to make things work & to also stir the sympathy in the viewer’s hearts for all the characters in general. I don’t know about you guys & I am not sure about how Sara & her husband might be feeling, but I was yawning all this while when Fatima was being mentally & physically tortured by the writer because what Fatima did & said before meeting an accident was lame & boring!!!

I didn’t know that at such a young age, girls can become BBC Reporters & can do their job with so much of dedication & determination. Fatima ended up telling Aan & Harib everything that Nayla & Farhan said about them. Who said Fatima was bipolar or something, she is a genius kid blessed with a photographic memory because she not only reported everything to Harib & Aan but she repeated the exact words too. Once again, it’s time for my public service message where I will request the parents of this child artist to pay heed to the dialogues that their kid is being forced to say because it is seriously not good for a girl her age. Anyways, Fatima also got to hear everything from Aila, about how her mommy wasn’t interested in keeping Fatima because she was too desperate to rekindle an old affair, once again, cameraman Haseeb Hassan ke saath, news-reporter Fatima from Karachi reported every single little detail to her father in London. As if the writer wasn’t tired of using Fatima again & again & again that she ended up using her for the final blow, which was to bring Aan to a confrontational park & then to get her hit by a car, to drag the drama further.

Time for a public service message once again not to the child artist’s parents but to all the parents in general, please have a look at Fatima (the character) clearly & understand that this is how your daughters shouldn’t be. Fatima is a result of an epic parenting fail, she is a result of those shameful mothers who are not interested in their kids. Everything that happened with Fatima also sheds a light on how parents should always hold the hand of their kids while crossing the road because you never know when a driver will confuse them as a lifafa & run them over. Also, please make sure your kids don’t have an access to telephones because without you even knowing, they will end up broadcasting every single thing that happens behind your closed doors. Shurkiya!

Well well well, just when Harib was getting jabbed by the jeans-clad jealous ladies, there came dupatta-clad dukhyari Aan, who swooped into that conversation out of nowhere. I thought that entire conversation was happening between Aila, Sara & Harib where Aila was holding Sara responsible for getting divorced but then Aan came in & started reciting qaseedas of how masoom she is because she wears shalwar kameez, ties her hair in a braid & knows how to make parathas, andas & kababs. HUH! Pay heed to that Aila & Sara that Aan is nothing like you guys & she is better because the writer has shown her as your contrast & the writer is endorsing the clichés that duppattay wali, braid wali, 2 in 1 maasi aur bawarchan hi shadi material hoti hai!

Anyways, this episode was such a disappointment because it started off at such a strong note but ended up losing the plot completely. I hate the way Fatima’s character is being used to drag things further & to prove a point which is best known to the writer herself. Honestly speaking, I won’t be surprised if I see Sara turning Fatima’s accident into an opportunity to grow closer to Harib as she would seek more sympathy from him citing her emotional weakness as an excuse, because anything is possible in Sanam, since the writer has turned Harib into the most sought after bechara that every girl is dying to be with him. Even though I have said it a million times, I will say it once again, I hate the way Aila has been turned into a villain, whereas she was introduced as a girl with psychological issues. Please don’t tell me that the small-brained writer thinks all those who suffer from psychological disorders are actually psychotic. Anyways, please share your thoughts about this nonsensical episode of Sanam!

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!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka Episode 2 Review-Surprising!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka started at a rapid pace but I must admit, I was not expecting these many surprises already. We all saw the sudden engagement of Daniya and Armaan while Zaryab was pining for his lost love. The second episode featured the marriage ceremony of the two while Zaryab was crying in different cornersZaryab actually is a coward. Yes, the concept is that he is Ahsanon Talay Daba Larka and for this very reason he did not respect his love enough. But he should have given a thought to Armaan’s feelings. How could he do this to Armaan whom he loves more than anyone? Since the whole Islamabad is familiar with Zaryab and Daniya’s affair, why he didn’t think of the fact that someone will tell Armaan eventually? Daniya was also a very unreasonable person. She was begging Zaryab to do something on her mehendi. She could have tried a bit earlier or the simple way out was to talk it out with Armaan. Armaan told her how much he loves Zaryab, so Daniya should have told him the truth. But well, then there would be no drama.

Armaan knew about the situation suddenly after bringing Daniya home. The funny thing is they got Nikkahfied in the morning but reached their home at night. He was as quick in taking decisions as his brother is slow. Instead of handling everything like a mature person, he divorced Daniya. He didn’t even discuss it with Zaryab before taking such a huge step.

Meri Guriya Episodes 1 & 2 – Disturbing But Not Original Enough

Written By: Radain Shah
Directed By: Ali Hassan
Produced By: Big Bang Entertainment
Schedule: Every Wednesday 8pm

I have to admit that the only reason I tuned into this show was the writer, I absolutely loved drama serial Nibah and was waiting for another drama written by Radain Shah. Also, right now, those dramas which highlight either social issues or revolve around family ties interest me more than those which focus on love triangles. Dar Si Jati Hei Sila set the bar really high therefore I couldn’t help but compare the two after watching the first episode of Meri Guriya. While Dar Si Jati Hei Sila dealt with abuse alone, this one showed the aftermath of a child’s brutal rape and murder and will also be focusing on the person responsible for this horrific act. Unfortunately, since we have all heard the gruesome details of how the beautiful and innocent Zainab was subjected to torture and rape therefore connecting the dots immediately was easy. The fact that the policeman pointed out that this was the 12th case of its kind showed that this particular incident wasn’t just fictional but was taken from Zainab’s tragedy. While this has unfortunately become a “trend” nowadays, I wish the makers of the drama didn’t add these details which showed the link of this story with that of Zainab. It is painful for the parents to watch such dramatized events on screen specifically when they know that this is their child’s story. Even if the intention of the makers is honest, this is unethical since Zainab’s parents made it quite clear that they do not want to see their child’s murder be dramatized. The details under the YouTube videos also mentioned that the drama makers have taken “inspiration from a real-life incident”. Having said that, I have faith in the writer and few of the actors involved therefore I am definitely going to follow this play and hope that the makers will be able to do justice to the story.

The first episode of Meri Guriya gave me goose bumps, it was a little too disturbing because it covered how Arfa, a nine year old girl, was dumped in the forest after being brutally raped and murdered. While these events were covered with utmost honesty and realistically, I did feel that Big Bang Entertainment yet again used the shock factor as an attention-grabbing tactic. Shehnaz (Sania Saeed) and Shahmeer’s (Sajjid Hassan) track had Mubarak Ho Beti Hui Hei written all over it therefore it won’t be wrong to say that this particular track isn’t too original either. The fact that Sajjid Hassan is playing the role of a man who cannot take a stand for his wife and doesn’t love his daughters enough and Ayesha Khan yet again is playing the daddi who hates her granddaughters, is constantly mocking them and her daughter in law doesn’t help either! Also, Shehnaz just like Naheed is a strong woman who loves her daughters and is completely focused on their well-being. One of Shehnaz’s 3 daughters Abida was really close to Arfa therefore she finds it really hard to cope with the loss. At the same time she is also fascinated by the dulhan next door since there is a wedding taking place in the neighborhood. She insists she wants to see the bride even though everyone is feeling terrified and insecure after Arfa’s murder. In these two episodes Abida and the new bride Safeena (Sonya Hussyn) develop a special bond with each other. Abida looks up to and adores the new bride and Safeena also likes her.

Safeena’s character reminded me of Farwa in the first episode but in the second episode the viewers were shown a different side of her as well. Safeena is outspoken, she plays badminton professionally and expects her husband Dabeer (Mohsin Abbas Haider) to divorce her soon so that she can pursue her career. Dabeer too isn’t interested in this marriage, he got married only to please his mother. ARY pretty much gave away the basic storyline and the reality behind the characters therefore even right now when the viewers should be wondering why Dabeer was crying in front of his wife and later on laughing when he heard that the rapist committed suicide, we know exactly why! Abida’s fate has also been mentioned in the summary given by ARY on YouTube! Sania Saeed. Mohsin Abbas Haider and Sajjid Hassan are my favorite actors, they are constantly experimenting and never fail to impress. These two episodes however could have been far more powerful had they not been inspired from Zainab’s tragedy and Mubarak Ho Beti Hui Hei. The story obviously will be completely different from that of MHBHH but these similarities should have been avoided.

After watching these two episodes I am still on the fence because of the lack of originality but curious to find out how the makers treat this incredibly difficult subject since they are not only going to focus on the victims but also the perpetrator. Also, I would like to request ARY to keep the summaries of their plays short and to the point because they give away a little too much!

Tabeer Episode 9 – Review!

Ohkay so, this episode of Tabeer was pretty decent too. The story is moving forward but before anything, I just wish this drama ends on a decent note without much dragging because there are very few characters so it might get tiresome watching them for a very long time!

Tabeer started taking care of Fawad’s son & she had to do that on expense of her own child. Fawad obviously grew more concerned for her seeing the sacrifice she was making. It was only because of Tabeer that Fawad now didn’t have to worry much about the well being of his son.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Daadi & Asma left but I really didn’t get why they decided to take Tabeer’s son with them & why didn’t they let him be with his mother? Yes, the doctor did say that Tabeer for now should only nurse Fawad’s son but that didn’t mean she had to distance herself from her child physically as well? This was an unnecessary twist in the story in my opinion & also quite unwanted.

Fawad & Tabeer had a little interaction where Tabeer misconstrued the entire situation but then again, there was no need for Fawad to draw closer to her. Also, it was suggested that Fawad left the room because Tabeer needed privacy while nursing the baby so even if she fell asleep afterwards, how come Fawad entered the room without prior notice like knocking the door or something? As he already knew that Tabeer was inside with his baby, so there was no need for him to come inside just so casually?

Ajju & his brother had a deal that Ajju will get Tabeer whereas his brother will get the house that belongs to Tabeer. On the other hand, Fawad contacted Saniya to apologize. I don’t think this is a wise move because I am sure Saniya will start misunderstanding his feelings once again. The way Fawad spoke to her was enough for her to mistakenly rekindle her old feelings for him & this is not what Fawad should do!
Overall, it was a decent episode but I am dreading the next episode, I really hope nothing happens to Tabeer’s child because it would be too much!!! Please share your thoughts.
