Sang e Marmar Episode 13 Review – Slow Yet Superb!

Sang e Marmar Episode 13 Review – Slow Yet Superb!

Sang e Marmar Episode 13

Ohkay so, nothing substantial happened in this episode but they did show some reactions of all the characters regarding different issues and it surely was a decent watch & I most certainly had a great time watching it as I always do. This episode might have been slow however, the preview of the next episode suggested a lot more drama so I am definitely looking forward to it.

This time around, Torah got the coverage & he was running the show. In the last few episodes he most certainly took a backseat, so it was necessary for him to put a step forward & conduct his plan. As much as I liked seeing his input in different matters, there were a few things that concerned me as they seemed a little odd, which I will discuss later but for starters, I will commend the writer Mustafa Afridi & also the actor Masroor Paras for giving life to a character like Torah. It is actually quite amazing that even though he is very calculative & manipulative, you can still see through his intentions as to when he is genuinely concerned about someone & when he is just putting up an act in front of someone to extract some satisfaction out of their misery. When Torah spoke to Shireen, I felt everything that he said to her was heart-felt & he was just extending some support to her, may be because he knows that he was the one who transpired everything that brought Shireen to this stage where she had to get married to Safiullah. Even though Torah was sure that it was Saif ur Rehman’s sister who was involved with Gohar, he still felt bad seeing Shireen so down & depressed because he could feel that her life was over & there is no way for her to step out of this deep pit. The thing which I found a little odd was his comment about Shireen giving birth to Safiullah’s child, that too so casually in front of his mother in law, which I don’t think is something that is discussed so openly in such a conservative environment. Also, as much as I enjoy his manipulation, I really wish he had left the ladies out of his agenda, where he was actually enjoying seeing Gullalai in such an emotionally unstable state. Gullalai broke down in front of him because she felt Torah was genuinely consoling her as he shares the same sorrow as her, but poor Gullalai had no idea that Torah was just a spectator who was enjoying the show!

Right now, Torah’s main motive is to keep Gulistan Khan deprived of his dream of having a grand child, that is why he kept brain-feeding Safiullah against Shireen so that he harbors more & more hatred in his heart for her. Torah would do anything to make sure none of Gulistan’s wishes are materialized as he wants to see him suffer.

I felt really bad for Shireen – as if getting married to Safiullah wasn’t enough that now she had to see Aurang & Palwasha together, where their behavior was clearly telling a tale of how much likeness they both had for one another. The moment Shireen stepped into Safiullah’s home, she realized that things won’t be easy for her, but little did she know that she’ll have to see her one true love being in love with someone else as well. At least, Aurang knows everything that Shireen felt, that is why he was a bit conscious & I believe he did the right thing by telling everything to Palwasha too. I don’t know why, but seeing how shocked Palwasha was upon hearing this news, I had a feeling that may be she will back out & may be she will play the cupid by bringing Shireen & Aurang together, I am not sure if it is going to happen but may be because I would love to see that happening, it’s a wishful thinking on my part!

I just love how Gullalai breaks down but picks up the pieces & strengthens herself emotionally as she knows that she has a new battle to fight every single day of her life. She knows Shireen is not at fault & she is just a victim of the circumstances too, that is why Gullalai has never targeted Shireen & in stead, she cries on how no one took a step in the right direction to help her overcome her ordeal. Gullalai may not say it to Shireen but she doesn’t have a problem with her because her complaint is with her husband Safiullah & all those who arranged his marriage with Shireen. I love all the comebacks Gullalai always has in store for Sherbano. Sherbano still believes she runs things in Gulistan’s place but Gullalai showed her, her right place & I am sure Sherbano won’t sit quietly as she has a score to settle that is why as the precap suggested, she will accuse Gullalai of being interested in Torah. I am sure Sherbano has no idea that she is digging her own grave because of all the people, Torah will twist things against her in such a way that she wouldn’t have even imagined!

Overall, this episode was slow but definitely interesting. To be honest, I was relieved to see Gulistan Khan/Noman Ejaz in the preview of the next episode because he was most certainly being missed. Also, it is important for him to be around after Safiullah’s marriage since he is the one who arranged it, so he needs to be well-aware of the dynamics of his house after Shireen’s arrival. Looks like Saif ur Rehman will try to find out the truth & he will interrogate the spy who told Saif ur Rehman about Gohar & supposedly Shireen. I am actually glad that things are going to get intense from the next episode onward, I really wish to see what Saif ur Rehman’s reaction would be when he will find out the truth. Also, I want to see if Torah will help Shireen in any way if he will also learn the truth that it wasn’t Shireen who went to meet Gohar that day. Like always, the performance of all the actors was spot on & even though Mikaal Zulfikar has been performing really well in this drama, in this episode in particular, he looked really nice, like there was some sort of charm in his personality, which was good. Masroor Paras was once again the star of this episode & so was Sania Saeed, I just loved her acting throughout the episode but in that scene in particular where she was trying to get rid of Sherbano as she couldn’t tolerate her bitterness, Sania Saeed portrayed the feelings of a mother who has given up on her hopeless daughter perfectly. So, this is it from my side, please share your thoughts about this episode of Sang e Marmar & let me know how excited are you for the next episode. 🙂

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!

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!
