Sang e Marmar Episode 19 Review – *Hats Off*

This episode of Sang e Marmar has left me heavy-hearted, teary eyed & speechless. To be honest, this was for the first time that I wanted this episode to end quickly because I just couldn’t take everything that was being shown with so much of intensity & perfection as I felt that my heart would explode. All the expressions, all the emotions, each & every single detail was delivered with so much of perfection that it was actually heart-wrenching & so very realistic. What a family must be going through who lost so much in a split second was quite hard to imagine. This episode, like all the previous episodes was a masterpiece, in terms of writing, in terms of direction & in terms of acting. This episode definitely was the crux of the entire story. The way the director has brought all the viewers to this point, by giving us so much to form a connection with the characters, due to which we felt heart-broken at everything that we saw – for that he definitely deserves a standing ovation. The entire team of Sang e Marmar deserves a standing ovation for drawing all the viewers’ attention to it in such a way that at this stage we all are feeling heart-broken. Usually intense & serious dramas like Sang e Marmar are not my cup of tea but to be honest, I actually feel lucky that I am getting to watch & review a drama like this!

Thank you Team Sang e Marmar, thank you so much!!!

Torah Khan…finally this guy pulled the trigger & that too at such a moment when no one expected that to happen. Torah has always been one of those people who liked manipulating people into doing what he actually wanted & for that, he never really had to take matters in his hands, but this was for the first time, where he actually pulled the trigger himself. This goes to show how much hatred was brewing in Torah’s heart & how badly his ego was hurt. I know what Torah did was so not expected & is most definitely wrong, but somehow it makes him look justified because his character, since day one has been introduced to us as someone who is working towards his revenge. Torah hasn’t killed Safiullah over something so petty that he said to him a few days back, but he has actually done this as a result of constant insults, constant underestimation, betrayal, hatred that he, his mother & to some extent his sister has faced all their lives, all these years.

I love love love the way the character of Torah has been written by the writer, because throughout this episode, I couldn’t bring myself to see Torah the way I usually do, which is in a positive manner, but somehow I couldn’t hate him because his thought process has been made clear right from the beginning. I remember saying it in one of my previous reviews, so as a refresher as I will say it again, Torah’s character got shaped this way only because of what Gulistan Khan did, that too when he was 11 years old. An 11 year old boy saw his mother getting beaten to a point where she ended up losing her ability to move & then died in severe pain, so definitely what Torah did today was basically a reward Torah chose for Gulistan Khan for something that he did years & years ago!

Torah manipulated Safiullah to kill Saif ur Rehman & that wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Bulbul as well because even Bulbul has understood what Torah wants & he has understood that Torah is someone who will achieve what he has on his mind no matter what, that is why, Bulbul pushed Torah’s agenda & brainwashed Safiullah a little more against Saif ur Rehman. The time finally arrived when Saif ur Rehman had to face his fears & somehow he didn’t retaliate because even he was feeling unmotivated & defeated because of the guilt that was harboring inside him. Ever since Saif ur Rehman has gotten Shireen married to Safiullah, he never once felt at ease because he knew what he did was wrong & sadly it was his sister who was facing the consequences. The helplessness on Saif ur Rehman’s face actually made me shed a tear or two because he knew he failed, he failed at what he wanted to do, he failed as a brother as well & sadly, he surrendered. Even though Saif ur Rehman’s death was sad, but what made me even more upset was the fact that Saif ur Rehman couldn’t get to know who the girl was that used to meet Gohar. Sigh!

Gullalai’s death also came as a shock but somehow at that very moment, I felt that she would’ve died emotionally if she had found out that Safiullah was nomore, but yes, nevertheless, her death was sudden but tragic too. I liked the conversation Aurang had with her right before she died where she even apologized for letting her happiness get the better of her. I knew it, I just knew it that the last meeting of Safiullah & Gulllai was just too sweet but it had this feel of sadness attached to it, like it is something that I can’t explain in words, but that is the feeling I had when I saw that scene, because of which I kept on feeling that they will never get to see each other again & sadly, that is exactly what happened.

So, Aurang came with Gullalai’s dead-body & it was a shock for everyone. I know it will sound inappropriate but after such an intense scene, seeing Aurang getting beaten up by Gulistan, that too with Gullalai’s slippers was amusing. It was like Gulistan got a chance to use Gullalai’s death as an excuse to shed his frustration & anger at Aurang which he has felt all his life for him. Gulistan was never in favor of Gullalai going to the city to get medically treated & to see his rebellious son going against his wishes pushed him to such a level!

To be honest, my heart broke when I saw everyone waiting for Safiullah to arrive, so that he could make a decision about Gullalai’s funeral & burial but sadly, he didn’t live to do that. To see Torah Khan acting all normal & mingling with everyone made me feel how thick-skinned he was, where he just killed a man & was now acting to be all sympathetic towards his family. Gulistan unfortunately had to live another day where he saw another son of him losing his life by getting brutally murdered. Even though he tried to put up a facade but he broke down in front of the ladies of the family because even he couldn’t cope up with the fact that his family lost 2 members at the same day & probably at the same time too. Before learning the truth about Safiullah’s death, Sherbano didn’t leave an opportunity to spew venom against Gullalai, but she got defeated by karma because she also found out that she lost her brother too & if not Gullalai, she will be forced to do some mourning for Gullalai’s husband, Safiullah.

Saif ur Rehman also left a sister & a wife behind who would mourn his death. Everything that his wife said was actually true because Gulistan Khan guaranteed Saif ur Rehman’s life & Safiullah actually should have accepted that but it was Torah who manipulated Safiullah into believing that this guarantee didn’t apply on him as he wasn’t a part of the conversation. It was heart-breaking seeing Pari & Shireen mourning the death of Saif ur Rehman because now his death will haunt Pari for not coming clean with her husband & it will take a toll on Shireen because she will know that she has no one to return to.

This episode was the most intense episode of Sang e Marmar but it was directed with so much of perfection & detailing that nothing seemed out of place. Tiniest of details were taken care of like while shooting, Safiullah looked in front & then ended up looking at the floor, implying that Saif ur Rehman must’ve collapsed by then. The look on Safiullah’s face, where he couldn’t come to the conclusion why his trusted Torah Khan shot him was beautifully done too. I loved how all the scenes were short & to the point & we transitioned into a new scene quickly because a lot of detailing & explanation would’ve taken away the charm of the episode.

All the ladies; Sania Saeed, Kubra Khan, Uzma Hassan did a wonderful job. Another actor that deserves a special mention is Kaif Ghaznavi, she is a phenomenally natural & a flawless actor, like even though I know how negative & conniving she is, she made me forget everything & forced me to feel her pain of losing her husband, amazing amazing amazing! My heart broke when I saw Shameem grieving again, she was dealing with Gohar’s tragic death till date & now she lost her first born, Safiullah too, just a few expressions of Sania Saeed are enough to show what her character is going through & it is commendable. Noman Ejaz & Masroor Paras definitely did a wonderful job as always & Mikaal Zulfikar’s acting was amazing in this episode, where he depicted a heart-broken Aurang perfectly. Omair Rana’s acting was perfect as well & his character will be surely missed.

Now coming to the star of this episode, for me, for that split-second expression of helplessness on his face was Syed Tipu Sharif, he actually made me shed a tear at that moment whereas I usually can control my emotions but that look on his face just did the trick. Saif ur Rehman saw the death approach him but even though he didn’t feel like retaliating because he knew it was too late, he still wished Safiullah would let him go, that certain expression was a mix of so many different emotions that were running through Saif ur Rehman’s mind, sigh, absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much Team Sang e Marmar once again, the writer, the director & all the actors, thank you so much.

For some reason, I am unable to see the preview of the next episode because it hasn’t been uploaded, so I will appreciate if the readers do not discuss what is going to happen in the next episode in the comment section. Please share your thoughts about this intense & power-packed episode of Sang e Marmar.

Khudgarz Episode 9 & 10 Review – Going Strong!

Ohkay so, this episode of Khudgarz was interesting & engaging. It surely kept me at the edge of my seat because I assumed something bad was going to happen to Aairah & it didn’t but then again that idea can’t be ruled out since Hassan’s calm is an indication of a storm that might be coming her way!

Finally, Abeer & Raheel were not only settling down with each other but they were developing understanding as well. Since Abeer has had such a bitter experience in the past, she didn’t take a second in misunderstanding Raheel whereas he was only trying to protect her. It is nice that Abeer acknowledges the fact that Aairah has brought such a nice change in her life & has guided her through. If it wasn’t for Aairah, Abeer would have never given it a thought that may be Raheel’s suggestion of looking for another job had some solid reason behind it!

Hassan obviously couldn’t cope up with the fact that everyone around him was happy & busy in their lives. Abeer not only left him but moved on too & right in front of him, Aairah & Junaid were falling in love with each other with each passing day, so obviously Hassan had to do something to wipe those smiles off their face. Sending old photographs to Raheel only showcased how sickly twisted Hassan is. Hassan literally devised a plan to send Junaid away so that he can work on getting Aairah comfortable with him. Hassan can clearly see that his father is not only sympathizing with him but is paying heed to everything that he says, that is why he is making sure to steer his thoughts against Junaid.

I have said it before & I will say that again, the main culprit behind Hassan’s unreasonability is Munawwar, his father. The way Munawwar spoke about Aairah & finding a girl for Hassan clearly showcased the sort of mentality he has. Also, the way he treated Inayat was enough to show how heartless he is. It is so obvious that Munawwar is regretting his decision of getting Aairah & Junaid married & I couldn’t believe when he judged Aairah for falling in love with her husband & also judged her father for getting her married to Junaid. Munawwar has shown how unreasonable he is & because he believes everything that Hassan says, I am sure he will be paying a huge price because of it. Even though Munawwar found out what Hassan did with Raheel & Abeer, he didn’t bother asking his son for an explanation as he was too busy blaming his wife & sympathizing with Hassan!

Aairah could already feel something. Her 6th sense was telling her that things might go wrong. Aairah was right in feeling that when everything was wrong, she would feel at ease but now when things were seemingly falling into their place, she could sense that something bad was coming her way. Aairah’s dependence on Junaid & her emotional attachment with him was super sweet. Just like Aairah, Junaid has also realized that he can’t be without her. It was for the first time that Junaid spoke against Hassan when he found out that Aairah took a ride to her office with Hassan, it goes to show that when it comes to Aairah, Junaid is wary of a lot of things & he doesn’t trust just anyone. I already feel bad knowing that both Munawwar & Hassan are against Aairah & Junaid, they so do not deserve this!!!

Overall it was a very interesting episode. I loved the way Abeer fell in love with Raheel all over again when she found out that he was trying to protect her from Hassan & all those office colleagues who badmouth her. I must say one of their colleagues is so annoying, I just wish he gets sacked ASAP. All those funny moments that Abeer & Raheel shared were really cute, it was nice seeing Abeer happy & Raheel going out of the way to make sure that she is happy. All the actors; Mansha Pasha, Amina Sheikh, Syed Jibran, Salman Saeed & Sami Khanare doing a wonderful job & the director has done justice to this script & the characters. Definitely looking forward to the next episode & yes, Tuesday seems way too far now. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Khudgarz!

Alif Allah Aur Insaan Episode 39 – Review!

Ohkay so, finally this drama is headed towards an end & I can’t tell how relieved I am but it is sad to say that the direction of this drama has now become a joke. Everything is being tackled in such a sloppy fashion that you just can’t believe it is the same drama which started off on such an amazing note.

Well, Nazneen & Taimur got divorced & now I have lost count of how many divorcees are in this drama. Let’s count again, so, Shahzeb, Basit, Taimur, Nazneen, Zimmal & Ali (Zimmal’s first husband), whoa, that many! To be honest, Nazneen & her divorces have become a joke & looks like she will be losing her sanity as well! Haye koi isay new kurta khareed de!

Roshni has not only grown suspicious towards Shaheer, she even went on to do a little investigation herself, let’s see what she comes up with!

Reena finally came clean & revealed everything about her relationship with Nawazish. What Nawazish did was so bizarre but then he got what he asked for, but then no one really paid heed to what Reena was saying. Even though Reena’s parents make an appearance way too often but they are being treated as fillers & nothing else.

So, Shahzeb’s mother thinks that he should get married to the girl he refused to help. Zimmal came in search of peace & found Shahzeb & his mother. After Zimmal stumbled across Shahzeb, I already had a feeling that they both will end up together. Hmmm interesting!

Anyways, I can’t wait for this drama to be over now. Please share your thoughts about this episode.

Lal Ishq Episodes 12,13,14 Review – Awesome

As always, these episodes of Lal Ishq were absolutely flawless. The characters are eccentric, difficult, confused and yet so relatable, so endearing. To be honest, for quite a long time, this is the only drama that keeps you occupied in a trance for its full duration. There is a genius at work behind it and thus all the actors are absolutely perfect in their characterization. I wonder why is it not getting more appreciation than all the silly ones out there who have no substance to offer.

So Ansa Mehrunnisa is still herself and both her brother and son are hurt but she is stuck in time where Bali’s death to avenge Hukum’s murder is the only thing that will make her happy. Her ego is sky high and she is more patriarchal than any male landlord could ever be. In her eyes, revenge is above all other relations, even those who who are her own flesh and blood.

The way all characters are entwined is just amazing. They all shot at eachother when none of them really wanted to. Yawar Kamal was pained to hurt Punar and vice versa but the grip of Hukum’s murder is so strong that it has overtaken all the good feelings of today.

Punar and Rameen have both felt attraction for eachother but the “mard ka bacha” is just so shy and humble when it comes to expressing her feelings whereas Rameen is the strong one who is enjoying the attention and also seeing Punar uncomfortable. Aabi Khan is just amazing as the loving, shy, obedient Mehr Punar who is pretending to be aggressive and revengeful to make his controlling mother happy. Every expression and dialogue he delivers is just flawless.

Bali and Jajji have finally reached truce. Till they had not met, they were both suspicious of eachother but when they met, had a vent out of pent up emotions by hitting eachother, they could connect on a very sentimental level. They saw that both of them felt immense love and care for Farhad and Rameen and understood eachother much better. Bali has agreed to let his kids keep on thinking of Jajji as Iqbal, their father. He felt it was a small price to pay for the sacrifices Jajji has done for his children and he is filled with gratitude. In his eyes, Zohra’s death has settled his score with the Mehrs and they have nothing more to do with him. Little does he know that they are still blood thirsty for him.

Mahi wants to delay her marriage because she thinks she can stop Punar from killing Bali and getting murdered by him or his men or get punished by the state for murder. Even though Mehrunnisa does not pay any heed to what Mahi or anyone in the household thinks for that matter, Mahi still wants to do everything she can to put an end to this saga of bloodshed and let her brother lead a normal life. She has convinced Rameen of her cause and we will see in the next episode if she can get her proper message across to Farhad well and whether he would support her in this decision or not.

Aangan Episode 10 Review – Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Ohkay so, it was yet another fun episode of Aangan with the focus on one issue – Aqdas’s proposal for Shaina. I think now that the introductory part is over & every character has gotten enough coverage to show their nature, everyone has settled down emotionally & things are pretty calm in Zaitoon Manzil these days!

Before anything else, I have to discuss the assumption that Zaitoon made about Hajra. The dual meaning conversation that they both had where Zaitoon was talking about a baby & Hajra was discussing about Aqdas’s proposal was so hilarious. Zaitoon’s naievty is super sweet, it just makes it so obvious that she is very simple minded but still she tries really hard to portray that she knows everyyyything. But I must say the mention of ’24 hours mai khushkhabri’ got Zaitoon confused too because no matter how simple she is, even she knew things aren’t this quick when it comes to this matter!!

Sadly Abba Jee was heart broken today. What he said about Shafiq complaining about him to Asim was sad to hear. He only wanted to guide his grandson but he got a reality check that no one is under his control anymore. The way the generation gap has been shown is brilliant. Abba Jee only wanted to convey what he felt but had no idea that he will get blocked because no one had the patience to listen to & understand his concerns!

Hajra got a bit too excited, therefore she told everyone everything based on her own assumptions. Even Shaina seemed a little excited because she knew that Aqdas is a nice guy. I loved the way Rubina & Laila were teasing Shaina. It was so good to see all of them coming together & looking forward to Faseeha’s arrival because they all wanted to be a part of Hajra’s happiness.

Even though Faseeha did put forth Aqdas’s proposal for Zoya but it was too obvious that she wasn’t too keen on it as she was judging Zoya for her one & only son & she didn’t really meet her standards. Everyone was not only taken aback but were shocked to hear what Faseeha had to say as no one saw that coming!

I once again loved how Shaina reasoned with Hajra & tried to put things into perspective. It was so beautiful that Shaina curbed her feelings & told Hajra to be happy for Zoya. I am sure things won’t be too smooth & there will be a lot of obstacles in the way & oh yes, the biggest obstacle would be getting Aalu & Anila’s permission.

I loved this episode & had a great time watching it. Even though every episode might focus on a thing or two but there are so many moments which make every episode wholesome & complete, like I loved the bonding of Hajra, Rubina & Laila over the kitchen table where they discussed how Zaitoon should be approached & informed about Aqdas’s proposal. Rubina’s neverending taunts directed at Zahid are amusing too, but sadly he doesn’t pay heed to what his wife is trying to convey. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable episode but I am looking forward to the next one as I want to see Zoya’s reaction. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Aangan.
