Sang e Marmar Episode 17 Review – Intelligent Piece of Work!

Sang e Marmar Episode 17 Review – Intelligent Piece of Work!

Sang e Marmar Episode 17

Ohkay so, like all the previous episodes of Sang e Marmar, this one was absolutely amazing too. I think I need to look for a new intro when it comes to Sang e Marmar because just the way the makers of this drama give us beautiful episodes week after week, I keep on praising them the same way week after week too. I love how this drama has so much of balance, it’s like the director knew that the story could become a bit too heavy & dense for the viewers, so he made sure to turn one page of the past at a time for the viewers to grasp everything that happened & also to understand the reasons that lead the story to a certain event. If we take a closer look at the pattern of each episode, each & every single week, the drama-makers made us familiar with one grave situation from the past because they knew that the viewers won’t be able to handle more than once such incident per episode.

Well, what Gulistan Khan did with Baraan Khan is most certainly open to different interpretations but yes, keeping the judgments aside, I will say that I felt bad when Gulistan broke down. Imagine the pain he must have been through & imagine the pain his father must’ve been feeling, that he chose to put an end to his life himself. I am sure it wasn’t easy for Gulistan to see his father in that condition in the first place, it never is easy for any child to see their parents suffer, but it must’ve taken Gulistan a lot to do what his father told him to because even he must’ve had enough of seeing his father in pain. So, this revelation put an end to all the speculations that the viewers made about the fact that may be Gulistan himself killed his father for power, authority or money but no, all he did was fulfill his father’s wishes. Even though, for that particular moment, I did feel bad for what Gulistan had to do, but the very next moment, I was also reminded of what Gulistan Khan did to Torah’s mother too. May be this was karma’s spin on Gulistan Khan that where he took life of someone’e else’s parent, he himself faced such a situation in life where he had to take his own father’s life with his own hands too. Honestly speaking, when the episode began & we saw Torah reminiscing about his mother & seeing a few of those flashbacks of Rakshi having a good time with her kids, I didn’t really understand the reason why all of a sudden the director was showing us Rakshi & her kids, but the moment we made it to the scene of Baraan & Gulistan Khan, I then knew how & why the director established the connection between Rakshi, Baraan & Gulistan Khan. I always say that I don’t really like when the drama-makers leave so much for the viewers’ imagination, but this is most certainly not the case with Sang e Marmar, it is because in the initial episodes, the director has made us familiar with all the necessary situations & scenarios, that now when he only shows us some snippets from the past, the viewers immediately find out the connection between different events, which is absolutely amazing. In my opinion, it is like the director Saife Hassan, even by showing us everything, still keeps us engaged in such a way that he gives us some points to ponder while we’re watching the episode, to make the entire experience a bit more engrossing & enjoyable & for that I thank him once again. Thank you so much Mr. Director for giving us this beautiful beautiful beautiful drama!!!

I loved the transition that Shireen showed in this episode, where from being jealous of Palwasha, Shireen then came to a closure by handing over the peacock feather; the most prized possession of hers to Palwasha to finally convince herself that a few things weren’t meant to be & she had to move on. I loved how the director in the beginning of the episode very subtly showed that Shireen grew envious because of which she literally rubbed the temple of her forehead in hatred because Palwasha tended to the bruise that Shireen got, but later on she understood that Aurang didn’t belong to her & Palwasha most certainly wasn’t responsible for what Shireen went through, so she made herself understand that it was better for her to accept the reality & not think about something that wasn’t possible anymore. I think because of the way Gulistan & Shameem take care of Shireen & how they treat her with so much of love & respect, despite not wanting to, Shireen would convince herself to accept Safiullah so that she can give birth to the grandchild that Gulistan is waiting for. Shireen has always been quite selfless where when she becomes affectionate towards someone, she goes out of the way to do everything in her might to please them, so this time around, I believe she will mentally prepare herself for this journey too, because she has developed a lot of respect & love for Gulistan & Shameem.

Aurang finally took Gullalai to the doctor & I liked their little interactions. Gullalai actually sounded like someone who for the first time in her life stepped outside of her village & outside of her comfort zone, because of which she was anxious & curious to see how things were going to work out in her favor. I am not sure why & even though I feel I might be wrong because this drama has always been quite unpredictable, but I have a feeling may be something huge is going to happen & may be this time around, Safiullah will pay the price, due to which Gullalai might not be able to see him again, because Torah & Safiullah are planning something against Saif ur Rehman, so this is just a thought that crossed my mind because the way they both parted at a sweet little note, I felt may be they might not see each other again, but let’s see!!!

Surprisingly, Torah wasn’t unhappy when Palwasha informed him about what Shameem did & how she gave her approval for Palwasha & Aurang’s marriage. May be because Torah knows that out of all the family members, Aurang is the sanest & most decent person & most importantly, Palwasha likes him, otherwise I actually thought that may be Torah will once again start thinking about the ways to manipulate his sister but he has always done everything to please Palwasha so for her sake, he would happily agree to her & Aurang’s marriage. The way Torah complimented Sherbano, for the first time I felt that may be he loves her a lot because going by the flashback of their wedding scene, Torah seemed pretty happy, it looked like he wholeheartedly accepted this marriage but it was Sherbano who drew the line so Torah chose to abide by it, but seeing how he looked at her, I felt he actually loves her a lot, because of which he puts up with everything that Sherbano throws his way. I don’t know why but for the first time I feel I’d like to see Torah & Sherbano together, finding happiness in their marriage because they both deserve their fair share of happiness too & it will be quite interesting I believe!

Finally, Durkhane found a way to Shireen’s home & with a lot of determination, she made sure she gets to meet her best friend before her brother arrives. It was actually heart-touching to see Shireen happy & Durkhane walking an extra mile for her friend. Even though Sherbano didn’t leave a good impression on Durkhane, it was good to see that the rest of the family members treated Shireen’s friend with a lot of respect, because this way, Durkhane will return with her heart at ease & her mind at peace & more than that, she will be able to tell everyone that Shireen’s condition is not as dire as people think it is. Finally, Shireen got a breather & she got to share everything that she had in her heart. It was actually sweet of Durkhane to inform Shrieen that Saif ur Rehman already started regretting his decision & more than that, she intends to tell him the truth if he will inquire about it one more time. Palwasha eavesdropped on their conversation, but it was actually good that she got an insight into Shireen’s heart that she no longer has anything to do with Aurang & she wishes well for Palwasha & Aurang. I don’t know why, I still feel may be Palwasha will play the cupid seeing how nice & selfless Shireen is, or if not, this is what I would love to see honestly.

Overall, this episode was perfect like all the previous episodes of Sang e Marmar. I had such a good laugh seeing Bulbul having the time of his life even in such a dire situation, he most certainly gave Baroo Kaka a hard time & sadly got a beating for it. The preview of the next episode seemed quite promising & got me excited already. Torah is not going to sit still now as he will try to get Safiullah enraged by using Shireen’s name, but he won’t be lying because this is what he thinks is the truth that the girl Gohar was involved with was Shireen. I loved the conversation Shameem had with Durkhane & Shireen, she always brings a smile to my face. It is actually quite nice to see that Shireen has such a loving mother in law who actually treats her like her own daughter. Even though at the moment Gulistan is also being considerate towards Shireen because of his own ulterior motives, still it feels good to know that at least Shireen is not being mistreated & at least Sherbano can’t target her because her father doesn’t allow that to happen. This episode once again belonged to all the actors but the star of this episode for me was the director Saife Hassan because of the way he directed this episode so intelligently & with so much of control over all the situations. Even by leaving a lot of things at the viewer’s imagination, Saife Hassan didn’t falter & did justice to his position as a director & I thank him once again for that. Please share your thoughts about this beautiful beautiful beautiful 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.

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!
