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.

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!
