Sang e Marmar Episode 21 Review – Respect For The Writer!

Sang e Marmar Episode 21

What a beautiful episode it was & such beautiful turn of events. I love how all of a sudden the colors became brighter & everything turned vibrant. It was a depiction of how everyone was ready to put the past to rest & was looking forward to move on, pretty much ready for the new beginnings & a fresh start. Even though it’s a known fact by now but after seeing this particular episode, I feel I have to say it again that I love love loveeeeeeeee this drama for so many reasons that I just can’t explain. Isn’t is amazing to see a drama where they touch on so many important aspects without making anything look boring or preachy. I am amazed to see that even at this stage, they have so many things, so many secrets to reveal, which just add more charm to the entire drama watching experience. Thank you Team Sang e Marmar once again for giving us yet another beautiful episode which was filled with so many beautiful moments, I just loved how positive the undertone of this episode was. ♥

So, finally the moment arrived when Gulistan Khan while looking back at his father’s journey could relate to everything that he went through. It was probably for the first time when Gulistan understood what his father used to say & most importantly why he’d say all those things because just when he was at the death bed, he had a very late realization of all the wrongdoings that he committed all his life. I want to personally thank the writer for touching the subject of ‘Riba’ in this drama & showing it with absolute accuracy. Respect, respect, respect! Gulistan for the first time was forced to that a step back & analyze everything that he has done all his life, which was following the footsteps of his father. Now when Gulistan himself has lost pretty much everything, he has realized that following his father was the worst thing he has done his entire life. From dealing in interest to abusing his wife, to mistreating everyone & to judging people on the basis of how much money they had, Gulistan’s upbringing wasn’t right & sadly after losing so much, he has come to the realization that he needs to make things right.

The scene which takes Gulistan Khan back to what happened between Gullalai & Baraan was so heart-wrenching, it was a very grave memory Gulistan had of Baraan’s last few days, like at this stage, Gulistan was seeing everything from a very different perspective & he was understanding how harsh the consequences were which his father had to face for all of the mistakes that he committed. It was good to see that after thinking things through, Gulistan started to make things right. I loved seeing how Gulistan began to take a few steps for his redemption, which started off by calling everyone to have a dinner together. It seems that after losing 3 family members, Gulistan is going to hold tightly onto his family & he will now do everything to protect them & will keep them closer to his heart.

To be honest, I was surprised with how Shireen reacted to Gulistan’s suggestion of going to Pari’s home for condolences on Saif ur Rehman’s death. Shireen actually got so much of love & respect from this family that she accepted Safiullah, despite his rude behavior. Even though Shireen was emotionally disturbed over what happened & how she was forced to get married to Safiullah, it looks like Gulistan & Shameem helped her in accepting this chapter of her life. Shireen has always been a very selfless person that is why we saw how she took everything on herself in order to protect Durkhane’s honor, similarly, even though she knew that Safiullah wasn’t going to treat her with respect, she only accepted him because she saw what she meant to Gulistan & Shameem as well. The way Shireen refused to meet Pari goes to show that she is well-aware of the game that Pari played & how she is responsible for maligning Shireen’s name, so Shireen didn’t find it necessary to rekindle a relationship that meant nothing to her at this stage.

I loved loved loveddd how they showed everything that Shameem was going through. The conversation she had with Aurang was absolutely beautiful. I must say the timing with which everything is revealed & how everything is linked with each other makes it a very unique experience. Like at first, where they clearly showed that even Gulistan came to realization that everything that his father faced or to an extent that he was facing was basically a punishment for dealing in Riba & then in the next scene we saw how Aurang was trying to console his mother by telling how Allah was testing her for her patience, like it wasn’t a punishment for her but a test which she had to take. I loved this bit the most where the writer elaborated that for Gulistan, it was a punishment but for Shameem, because she was innocent & had no say in what her husband or her father in law did, it was basically a test of her patience. Just when I saw Shameem crying in front of Aurang, this is exactly what I had in my mind, because I was wondering why Shameem was facing the brunt for what Baraan or even Gulistan have done all their lives & just the very next moment in that particular conversation, my doubts were cleared, this goes to show the amount of wisdom & intelligence that has gone into writing a script like this. Respect!

It’s a done deal by now that every episode of Sang e Marmar will bring a few moments which will force me to shed a tear or two & this time around, that was the moment that Gulistan & Shameem shared, where Gulistan offered Shameem to hold his hand after getting to know how distanced he was from his wife all his life & how she longed for him. That was yet another reality check that Gulistan got that in the pursuit of attaining power & authority, he forgot to treat Shameem as a wife. Even though Shameem is dealing with the pain her way, the sudden change in Gulistan’s behavior always comes as a reminder to her of all the things that she has gained now after losing all that she had. The way Gulistan tells Shameem to sit with him for dinner, the expressions of disbelief on her face was another very sweet moment, Gulistan has started making things right because he is tired & he has been defeated & this is how Shameem has never seen her husband before, that is why Shameem couldn’t believe what she was experiencing & it was very very sweet. I loved how Palwasha gave them all a space to have some family-time & it was good to see Gulistan having a conversation with his family. I know it’s a very random thing but seeing them all having green tea after dinner brought a smile to my face, like it’s a very small thing that sheds a light on the Pukhtoon food culture, but goes to show the attention to detail with which the director has directed this drama!

The scene where Pari is singing to her child was actually quite depressing but it had a very clear message. Pari is now going to prepare her child to avenge his father’s death. It was basically shedding a light on the loop that begins, the circle which everyone is forced to complete when a murder takes place. Saif ur Rehman killed without thinking things through, Saif ur Rehman also got killed & now his child will pretty much have the same fate because sadly, his mother has developed the hunger for revenge too. Sad but true!

The scene between Shameem & Shireen was another best moment of this episode, like it had no dialogues, just some very powerful expressions that told us all a tale of what was going through Shameem’s mind. Shameem looked at the tree & the birds which she took care of, which she nurtured all her life but now she handed over the responsibility to Shireen because she was tired & she wanted to give up. I loved how it showed that Shameem has given it all to this home, how she has literally dedicated her entire life to nurture each & everything related to it but now she wanted the time off because she has no courage & probably no motivation left to do it anymore. It was absolutely beautiful!

Malang Jaan & his story was something that Gulistan was now able to relate to as well. After Baraan Khan & his suffering, Malang Jaan’s story is another thing which Gulistan has gotten a clear perspective of. The way Gulistan Khan painted the picture of Malang Jaan’s suffering & his peaceful ending in front of Aurang to make him understand how even he wanted some rest now was deep, meaningful & very heart-touching. Gulistan Khan has realized that he has failed, he has understood that he has been defeated & now he has given up the urge to hold onto the things he kept closer to his heart all his life. Gulistan knows that Aurang has all the qualities of becoming his successor & he’d probably do a better job at everything in comparison to Gulistan, that is why has has decided to rely on Aurang & take a back seat from everything. I loved where at one hand Shameem gave the responsibility to Shireen, on the other, Gulistan Khan gave the responsibility to Aurang too! What a perfect closure & what a perfect way to start a new journey!

Overall, this episode was beautiful. I must say I am impressed how even after 21 episodes, the drama-makers have kept our interest alive in the show. This drama has turned out to be like one of those mystery case files where one mystery unravels & another awaits for the viewers, also what makes it absolutely amazing is that everything has been done so tastefully & perfectly that you just can’t find faults or loopholes. Sania Saeed & Noman Ejaz surely took the crown in this episode, followed by the writer who came up with such a brilliant script & embedded so many beautiful lessons in it. I must say, it takes a lot of courage to show something so controversial with so much of accuracy & for that, the team of Sang e Marmar deserves all the accolades. The preview of the next episode got me excited already, looks like Durkhane will finally unveil the truth, which is good because she should take the responsibility for her mistakes. I can’t wait to see the next episode alreadyyy!!! Please share your thoughts about this 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!
