Sang e Marmar Episode 18 Review – Calm Before The Storm!

Review Sang e Marmar Episode 01 – An Impressive Start!

OMG! This is for the preview of the next episode that I just saw but I will get back to that later. Yes, I will say that this episode was a bit on the slower side but after seeing the precap, I now understand why because this was probably the calm before the storm. Even though nothing substantial happened in the beginning of the episode, it ended at such a note where things were built up properly & throughout the episode, a few things were covered as well. I will however say that I had a good time watching this episode of Sang e Marmar because the moment you tune to this drama, it is guaranteed that you are going to take something with you when it will end & that’s all that matters & that’s all what a drama should do!

So, Gulistan not only wants to see Safiullah’s children but he wants Sherbano & Torah to start a family too. Gulistan has seen how over the years, Sherbano has become bitter & he knows that the reason behind such a behavior of Sherbano is because she has no purpose in her life, that is why he wants them to have children so that not only Sherbano becomes busy but also because she gets a purpose in life so that she stops meddling into other people’s lives. Gulistan knows that he can directly or indirectly never convey this message to Sherbano because she just isn’t the one who’d pay heed to his advice, therefore he chose to speak to Torah in stead. Even though Torah didn’t take it to his heart but everything that Safiullah later said hurt Torah’s ego.

On the surface, people assume a lot of different things about a couple but they actually don’t know what they are going through, that is why everything that Safiullah said to Torah about going to a herbalist only showed how insensitive & incourteous he was because he didn’t even have an idea about the nature of the relationship that Torah & Sherbano share. Safiullah has a lot of pride on himself & he conveniently uses Gullalai as a scapegoat thinking that her ailing health is the reason why they haven’t been able to have a child but on the other hand, Gullalai got a validation that she is perfectly healthy & it is Safiullah who needs some medical assistance. All his life, Torah has been insulted time & again by Gulistan’s entire family, but where he retaliated, he let go of a lot of things too but this time around, Safiullah pushed the wrong buttons & that is why Torah couldn’t take it anymore & chose to push his agenda a little further where he now wants to deprive Gulistan of another moral support that he has & that is Safiullah!

Gullalai was pretty happy with the results of her reports because she got a clarity that she is not the one to be blamed. Even though all the things that she said about Gulistan to her friend were bitter but they were based on the truth & reality. I somehow liked that despite getting to know that the doctor asked Safiullah to take some tests, Gullalai never once blamed her husband for anything & in stead she thought it was a destiny’s play on Gulistan Khan & he & his family was facing all this because of all the atrocities that he has committed all his life. Even though Aurang heard everything but he couldn’t say a word because even he knew that everything that Gullalai said wasn’t a lie & she has suffered a lot, that is why where she was relieved, she was overwhelmed too & deserved a moment to speak her heart out!

Bulbul finally succeeded in escaping the torture cell but I really liked how he trapped Baroo Kaka. I thought may be this time around, Safiullah will get some hints about the fact that Bulbul told everything to Saif ur Rehman because Torah asked him but Torah being intelligent twisted the entire story & turned Saif ur Rehman into the culprit. If in stead of getting hyper or emotional, Safiullah had paid heed to the way Torah reacted & how he grew uncomfortable at what Bulbul was trying to say, he could’ve understood that may be everything was initiated by none other than Torah. Even though I am totally rooting for Torah because he deserves his revenge, but I would hate to see Shireen facing the brunt for it because in order to achieve what he wanted, Torah ended up dragging Shireen’s name & maligned her image a little more, which she most certainly doesn’t deserve. It is actually quite sad to see that despite being innocent, Shireen is held responsible for all the messy situations & what’s even more sad is that she never has an idea about what is transpiring behind her back. I must say, the way Torah twisted the entire story was quite interesting though, he convinced Safiullah into believing that Saif ur Rehman killed Gohar because of Shireen & then sent his wife Pari to get Shireen married to Safiullah, in order to save himself, like I have said before & I will say it again, no one can beat Torah in mind games & intelligence!!!

Hmmmmm, looks like Palwasha embraced Shireen out of immense respect for her & she not only accepted the peacock feather, but she also accepted the fact that Shireen used to love Aurang but has backed out for Palwasha’s sake, that is why after meeting Shireen, Palwasha went straight to Shameem & also ended up voicing her thoughts in front of Sherbano because for the first time she got some sort of boost & had this confidence that nothing can go wrong right now & Sherbano can’t do anything. I thought may be after getting to know about what’s in Shireen’s heart, Palwasha will do some thinking but I guess just because Shireen herself had a closure, Palwasha got a clear passage!

Durkhane is going to get married to Kaleemullah & I still find it amusing that Durkhane’s mother accepted this proposal because she is a 100% sure that Kaleemullah’s mother is going to die anytime soon, like even though I know that it is quite mean, but I find it amusing, lol! Well, Durkhane & Saif ur Rehman’s conversation made me believe that the time has arrived when Saif ur Rehman will finally find out the truth that it was Durkhane who used to meet Gohar & Shireen was innocent, but before it could happen, Baroo Kaka called Saif ur Rehman & Durkhane couldn’t tell him anything. I think by this time even Durkhane was convinced that she should tell Saif ur Rehman everything but just before she could, she lost the opportunity. I think this is something that Durkhane will now regret for the rest of her life because this was probably the last chance that she had where she could clear off her best friend’s name & pay her back for everything that Shireen suffered because of Durkhane’s silly mistakes!

Ohkay so, the preview of the next episode literally left me in shock, poor Saif ur Rehman is going to die & Safiullah will be the one who will kill him. Thanks to Torah & his planning that now Shireen will end up suffering even more because where Safiullah might approach her to fulfill the promise he made to himself, he will always mistreat her & will look at her with a lot of hatred & detest. Safiullah promised that he won’t treat Shireen as his wife till he gets a chance to kill Saif ur Rehman & now sadly, Shireen is going to suffer a lot more. Even though I know Torah is the one who was the main reason behind Gohar’s death & I feel bad for Saif ur Rehman, I also feel that when it comes to Shireen, Pari is solely responsible for her plight. I just feel so bad for Saif ur Rehman but I want to see if his death will put things into perspective for Pari because what she did with Shireen & the way she fooled her husband into believing her version of the story based on white lies was something that she should actually face the punishment for.

Well well well, I just loveee the way the story has unfolded till date, where despite being distanced, every single one of them is linked through one thing or another. Gohar’s death was a result of Torah’s planning but Shireen’s misfortune was a result of Pari’s planning which she did using the entire scenario to her advantage. I can’t wait to see how the dynamics will change now & what life has in store for Shireen especially. I don’t know why even though I know I will end up feeling bad for Gullalai, but I wish something happens to Safiullah because that way may be Aurang & Shireen will get to be together. Sigh! Wishful thinking on my part I know! Anyways, this episode surely belonged to Omair Rana & Masroor Paras, I thoroughly enjoyed all the conversations that they had, it is actually quite amusing that a man of Safiullah’s stature & persona can be so easily manipulated & fooled by a very harmless looking Torah Khan. Sharmeen Kashif’s acting has improved a lot over the episodes & I liked her performance in the scene where Palwasha for the first time retaliates in front Sherbano. All the actors have done a brilliant job, the editing & direction of this drama has always been on-fleek. I thank the writer for coming up such a brilliant story & giving us something completely different & totally engaging. Thank you Team Sang e Marmar once again. Please share your thoughts about this very interesting 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!
