Sang e Marmar Episode 16 Review – Simply Beautiful!

Sang e Marmar Episode 16 Review – Simply Beautiful!

Ohkay so, another week, another amazing episode of Sang e Marmar. I know for some viewers, the pace of the drama must’ve slowed down a little, but honestly speaking, I don’t mind that because I always have a good time watching Sang e Marmar as it is one such drama that I look forward to the entire week. For me, the best part about Sang e Marmar is not just the fact that it is an amazing drama that is on-air these days, what appeals to me the most is that while watching Sang e Marmar, I experience so many emotions, like they make me laugh, they make me smile, they make me a little sad & most importantly, they keep me engaged & this is exactly what I look for in a drama, so yes, like always, this episode of Sang e Marmar worked for me completely & I had a great time watching it.

To be honest, for the first time I felt bad for Saif ur Rehman, especially after the way his wife Pari treated him. Somehow, I felt bad for him because of being slow, he allowed his wife to take advantage of the situation & use him as a puppet. Yes, what Saif ur Rehman himself did was absolutely wrong, but now when he is trying hard to get to know the truth, he is being distracted by his wife who is a bit too sharp & intelligent for a man like him. I am sure it will be a miracle if Saif ur Rehman, being a slow-wit will find out the truth about his sister Shireen!

Aurang tried to have a conversation with Shireen but she cut him short because she knows that even he can not do anything plus she wouldn’t want to depend on him as she is well aware of how it will create more problems for not only Aurang but for her too. What I love about all the female characters in this drama is that they all are fighting battles, their own way, without allowing themselves to rely on anybody. Considering the circumstances Shireen is facing, it would’ve looked justified if she had depended on Aurang for some emotional support but she chose not to, which makes her look like a very strong woman who knows how to deal with her own baggage. Ah! Such a breath of fresh air in the era where all our dramas are flooded with becharis & becharas! Thank you so much Mustafa Afridi for showing us an extinct trait!

I loved loved loved everything that Gullalai did, even though for a second I didn’t like when I saw how she twisted the truth in front of Saifullah, but after seeing her justification & thought process, I somehow understood her & felt that she was justified in trying to save her husband & her marriage. If we look at it from Gullalai’s perspective, yes, it might look like she schemed & plotted a little in order to make Shireen look bad in front of Safiullah & to show him how much she cares but honestly, I don’t mind it if by doing this, she will keep Safiullah & Shireen distant, because I really think the distance between Safiullah & Shireen should remain & should be maintained as Shireen doesn’t deserve an emotionally absent man like Safiullah who has nothing to give to her. Gullalai knew that she was losing the battle against Shireen as Shameem was on her side too, so she convinced herself a little to do something which she otherwise would’ve never done, like apologize to Shireen on Safiullah’s behalf, & it was something that actually made Gullalai look quite wise. For a woman like Gullalai who only has her husband as her ride or die, it seems justified that she is creating certain situations which make her feel secure about the fact that her husband still belongs to her. Also, what Gullalai did didn’t harm Shireen in any way, in fact it earned both Shireen & Gullalai, Shameem’s support & respect, so it was actually a win-win situation!

I will thank Mustafa Afridi once again for showing us a mother & a mother-in-law like Shameem, who knows how to do justice between her daughters in law & also who knows how to rebuke her son for his nasty behavior. If Shameem had wanted, she would’ve easily ignored what Safiullah did with Shireen, citing it as a personal matter between the couple, but she took the matter in her hands & tried to rectify the situation. It made me respect her character a lot more. I felt bad for her when she used Gulistan Khan’s name as a reference saying that one Gulistan Khan is enough & there was no need for another, it somehow showed that Shameem learned a good lesson from her bad experiences & shaped her character & mentality in such a way that she would never let any girl go through this, as she herself knows how it feels. Even though Shireen is Saif ur Rehman’s sister, a sister of Gohar’s murderer, but that still hasn’t stopped Shameem from being kind & considerate towards Shireen as she knows that everything that happened wasn’t Shireen’s fault, so she shouldn’t face the brunt for it as well.

Finally, Sherbano got some importance by her mother & I had such a good laugh seeing how she displayed her annoyance. I just love how sarcasm comes naturally to all of them, like just because it seems so extemporaneous it looks like this is how they all actually converse with each other & that made me laugh a lot. It was once again actually quite sweet how Shameem tried to assure Sherbano that Aurang wasn’t going to get married to Palwasha because she knew that Sherbano would otherwise make Palwasha’s life miserable till the day she will get married, because right now everything that Aurang said was just in theory & he didn’t approach Gulistan Khan to get the approval for his & Palwasha’s marriage. Shameem’s excitement was absolutely adorable & the way she said being a ‘mother’ she couldn’t contain her happiness, it was just so sweet.

Now, coming to the only intense scene of the episode, where Gulistan Khan unconsciously says ‘Gohar ko kaho isay sarak tak chorh aye’ & later goes to his room immediately to hide his tears & conceal his emotions. That scene somehow reminded him of someone who died in front of him, probably his father & somehow it looked like may be because of the pain that Gohar’s death caused him, Gulistan as a father could relate to the pain that own father must’ve experienced, may be on his death bed or something. It was an intense yet powerful scene & was done so beautifully that it stirred the curiosity & I just can not wait for that secret to unravel!

Overall, it was a beautiful episode & I had such a great time watching it. I will thank the writer once again for writing such dynamic characters & I will thank the director for showing their journey in such a way that we actually get to understand what they are going through & what they are feeling. This episode was filled with such beautiful moments like those that Safiullah & Gullalai shared, they both share such a strong bond & it is actually very sweet to see, also I must say, I actually really liked their chemistry in this episode. Palwasha got some coverage too & I liked that even though she was feeling insecure & confused about what she saw between Shireen & Aurang, she chose to keep it to herself & didn’t give words to those feelings especially in front of Aurang. I must say, even though when this drama began, I thought that it will focus more on the male characters & their side of the story but it is actually quite a pleasant surprise to see how the writer & the director have balanced the coverage & have given an importance of both the male & the female characters, it makes the story quite diverse & complete. The best thing about Sang e Marmar is that we are getting to ‘experience’ different characters & their journey in general, it makes it more than just a drama for me. This episode once again belonged to Sania Saeed, however Najiba Faiz, Uzma Hassan, Kaif Ghaznavi, Sharmeen Ali & Omair Rana played their part really well too. Thank you so much once again Team Sang e Marmar, your hard-work & efforts are much appreciated. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Sang e Marmar.

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.

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!
