Sang e Marmar Episode 22 Review – New Beginnings!

Sang e Marmar Episode 22 Review

Another beautiful episode of Sang e Marmar. While watching this episode tonight, I was thinking about how Sang e Marmar has unfolded to be a complete journey that we have covered. I was thinking about the the moment from where it all began. It’s like we have seen a growth in the characters, their lives, their understanding, sensibility & maturity, which makes it such a wholesome experience. What’s amazing about Sang e Marmar & its story is that the writer still has so much left to show to us, that is why every episode brings a lot of surprises & even at this stage, we’re left guessing about what is yet to come. I believe the unpredictability has been the X-factor of Sang e Marmar & for that, once again, the writer & the director deserve a standing ovation for bringing a story so unique, so convincingly to us!

This episode focused more on how everyone got back to their normal lives & decided to fend for themselves. It started from Pari, it is good to see that she is quite farsighted & even though she may be stronger, she knows her weaknesses too. Pari is well aware of the fact that where she can not trust everyone easily, she has to at least depend on a few people around her to take care of Saif ur Rehman’s business for her & her child that is yet to come. Pari is thinking way ahead of time & thinks she needs to establish a battlefield to hand over to her son when he will reach that age where he’ll be able to avenge his father’s death, that is why she has started making a move. Shareefullah & Baroo Kaka accepted Pari’s offer & decided to help her with the business. I know it is such a random thing but I loved seeing the warmth & sincerity that everyone has to offer at this stage. Baroo Kaka is still loyal to Saif ur Rehman & Shareefullah is being sincere with Pari for the sake of the job that has been offered to him.

I had a great time watching Shareefullah, Durkhane & their mother’s conversations too because for some reason their chemistry made them look so genuine & truthful, like families usually are. I love how their mother always has an opinion & how she never fails in guiding her children. Even though she has been a supporting character but like all the other characters, she has emerged to be a very strong character too with a lot of screen presence because every time she embraces the screen, she automatically grabs my attention & I actually look forward to what she has to say. The way she sympathizes with Shireen, the way she understands what Durkhane is going through & this time around, the way she understood what Shareefullah was trying to say – she is such a perfect depiction of what mothers are like; dynamic, kind, authoritative & well-wishers. Also, I know it is amusing but I always find myself laughing whenever she speaks about Durkhane’s mother in law’s death, that too with so much of certainty thinking that having no mother in law would guarantee her daughter a peaceful & happy life.

Finally, Shameem decided to voice her thoughts on the matter of Riba. Even Shameem knows that everything that has happened is because Baraan Khan passed on a curse to his son Gulistan & Gulistan ended up passing that on to his all his sons, even though this was the first time that he actually handed it over to Aurang, but that curse ended up taking the lives of two of her sons too. Shameem tried to put things into perspective because she knows that she can not afford to lose more, she can not afford to lose Aurang too. Shameem, like an obedient wife doesn’t blame Gulistan for anything, but does understand that following the footsteps of his father brought him & his entire family to this stage where they are now mourning the deaths of Gohar & Safiullah. It was totally expected that Aurang will take the charge of everything that Gulistan has handed over to him, but he will form new rules & he will do everything based on the principles totally different to what Baraan & Gulistan set for themselves. Aurang could see how afraid his mother was & not only that, he even understood that the root cause of all the problems that his family has faced was Riba that is why he decided to put a lid on it. The scene where Aurang takes all the documents & burns them ended up becoming my favorite scene of this episode because it marked the new beginning. Another thing worth mentioning is that Gulistan Khan, who always took pride in what he has established through his business, stood there like a spectator, seeing Aurang taking full control, which showed that when Gulistan requested his son to succeed him & when he requested Aurang to set him free, he meant it & that is why, now when Aurang finally decided to take an action, Gulistan didn’t stop him at all. The way Gulistan Khan hugged Aurang went to show that he was not only happy, he was satisfied with the decision that Aurang made & was completely confident that his son won’t put him down. The hug portrayed the respect Gulistan as a father had for Aurang, his son!

On & off I have felt some sympathy for Pari but the way she once again spewed venom against Shireen just because she found out that Saif ur Rehman made his sister entitled to some of his property made me loathe her character completely & convinced me that she is not someone to be sympathized with. The fact that she has been a negative character is not disturbing, but what’s disturbing is that she is well aware of the fact that it was Durkhane who had an affair with Gohar, but still she chooses to malign Shireen’s name. Pari has gotten rid of Shireen based on these lies, she kept her husband in the dark till he was alive & even now when that thing should be done & dusted, she doesn’t even bat an eyelid before bringing that lie up once again, it’s like she is going to benefit herself from that lie as much as she can without even thinking twice. To be honest, at this stage, I really want to see Pari losing everything that she is trying hard to hold onto because she actually deserves it.

Ah!!! I so fell for the trick thinking Durkhane will actually reveal the truth but it ended up being a thought that just crossed her mind. Durkhane knows that the consequences can be grave but she is slowly & steadily preparing herself for it & even though she hasn’t come to that point, just the fact that she is thinking on those lines is relieving because it shows that eventually she will bring herself to say the truth about how Shireen was & has been innocent right from the beginning. It was sad to see that Shareefullah chose to believe Pari, whereas just a few moments ago he told his mother how he was interested in getting married to Shireen. Even though I don’t want to see Shireen getting married to Shareefullah, but what I want to see is Durkhane taking complete responsibility of what she has done!

Accha jee, looks like Torah Khan is now interested in the property & the land that Gulistan Khan has because he believes his father earned it. I am sure there’s a lot to be revealed about that aspect too but at the moment, it was good to see Gulistan & Torah sharing a laugh & having a light hearted conversation where Torah was being teased by Gulistan. Aurang & Palwasha’s scene was sweet but hmmm, what seemed sweeter was the preview where Gulistan Khan asks Shireen if she’d get married to Aurang. 😀 I so hope the director doesn’t trick us again & it happens to be an actual scene, an actual conversation & a genuinely asked question!

I loved watching this episode like all the previous episodes of Sang e Marmar. It was light-hearted but it most certainly had the essence of what this story is about. Looks like we’re past the stage of depression & now everything is shaping itself up & for the better. I remember just a few episodes ago I had so many questions in my mind & now most of them have been answered so I am definitely looking forward to the remaining questions to be answered too which I am sure will be covered. It is absolutely amazing how the writer & the director turn everything into a riddle & then solve themselves up for the viewers. It is amazing how Aurang who was always in the background while still being an important part of the family has now come to the forefront & has actually emerged as a savior of his family. I am happy with the progress Aurang has made but I’ll become a lot happier when he will agree to get married to Shireen. Sherbano was missing from this episode but I am sure no one missed her. I actually miss Bulbul Khan, I am sure he still has something left to offer & just one confession of his might change the dynamics once again. At this stage, I don’t even want to predict or make speculations because the writer & the director have always been ahead of us & I am sure they have that settled as well, so yep, not thinking much, but just looking forward to what is yet to come. All the actors acted brilliantly in this episode & like always the dialogues, the direction & the way this episode was written, everything was on-fleek. Kaif Ghaznavi makes her scenes a treat to watch & the way she has convinced us all to loath Pari’s character is her success as an actor. I loved the acting of the actresses who are playing the characters of Durkhane & Durkhane’s mother too. Can’t wait for the next episode already. Please share your thoughts about this beautiful episode of Sang e Marmar.

O Rangreza Episode 24 – Review!

Ohkay so, I think it’s about time that this drama should end because it is becoming a task to sit through its episodes. The writer has conveyed what he wanted to & now its up to the viewers to interpret & decipher it however they deem fit & to be honest when it comes to me, I am still struggling to find out the purpose. Is this drama different? Yes! But is it going to stay with me after it ends? No!

For the last time Sonia tried to stop Sassi from falling into deep pit of fame & show business but Sassi chose to overlook her sincerity. Since Sonia has touched the fame & has also seen the emotional & mental destruction it causes up close, she wanted to save Sassi because she genuinely is concerned about her but Sassi is someone who would even get destroyed on her own terms & conditions!

The way Sassi got back at Sonia was sickening & at first it did seem that may be her rebelliousness & boistrous nature will win her something but seriously, after getting to know her more & more, I feel she will end up exactly like Sonia Jahan or may be worse. At least Sonia had a heart & despite touching the fame, she was still humane but Sassi leaves me speechless. I think the writer got confused & forgot that being strong doesn’t mean one is heartless or emotionless but sorry, Sassi might be strong but she is shallow, empty from within! Kya expect kiya tha aur ye kya nikli! I remember I was totally up for Sassi’s character when this drama began & even understood her but not anymore, I am unable to connect to her character seeing how cold & inhumane she is!

This Tipu being the owner of Haveli scenario is absolutely forced & serves so purpose whatsoever. First Tipu tells Meena that they’ll move back to London, then in order to convince her, he makes her the owner of the Haveli & proposes her? Matlab kuch bhi? To be honest, Meena’s cluelessness when Qasim told her about Tipu’s intention was cringe worthy. Meena has spent enough time with Tipu to know that he is nothing but a liar. Meena has spent enough time with Tipu to know that he doesn’t have a soft corner for his family members so how did she assume that Tipu was telling her the truth that he was going to take care of the family? Meena knew about the clause in the contract, yet she chose to believe Tipu? The way Meena behaves seriously makes me feel she comes from a small town or a remote village to not have a know how of how things roll or to see through someone’s clear yet evil intentions because if she was educated or as suggested that she comes from London, she would’ve known better considering the exposure she must’ve had. Meena lets Tipu fool her every single time & she acts like his puppet! Seriously!

So, Khayyam gave up in front of Sassi, he surrendered because he can see that she is a gone case & there’s no point in taming her. Khayyam has lost everything, he lost at being a good father, a good husband, he also almost has lost those reasons for which he fell in love with Sonia Jahan & he has also lost his respect. The only reason why he is still taking care of Sonia is because his courtesy has overtaken his love for her & that’s about it!

Even though they gave it away in the precap of the next episode, but seeing Qasim’s agitation, I actually thought to myself that he might get married to Meena to save the entire family from Tipu & his evil plans & that’s exactly what is going to happen. Now that I am thinking about Tipu’s character, I still stand by what I said earlier that this drama would’ve been excellent without his addition. What a waste of time & screen space!

This entire tossing & teasing equation that Wajih & Sassi share is boring. Sassi is out to prove something to Wajih which she time & again does, still he makes a point to let her know that she is falling short of one thing or the other. Boring!

Going by what Sassi said to Qasim in the preview of the next episode tells me that she will now find herself a new job of pestering & guilt-tripping Qasim because her ego won’t allow her to accept that he got married to Meena & that he chose Meena over her! Also, I won’t be surprised IF Qasim will leave Meena because he’ll be like Sassi said so! Whatever! Please share your thoughts about this episode of O Rangreza!

Teri Raza Episode 27 Review – Cringe Worthy!

Ohkay so, to be honest, I enjoyed this episode for a weird reason & that was because Suhana was getting bashed from every side. I loved how Suhana was getting exposed & on top of that she was being mistreated by Rameez but then again, the writer has made her this royalty who can get away with everything that is why, the punishment that she was getting had less or no impact!

Suhana claimed that she was not in contact with Imtiyaz, but did she really think people are going to buy that since she runs a business owned & financed by him? I literally cringed so hard the moment Suhana called & cried in front of Imtiyaz? Why is it that the oh so Khud-dar Suhana only now cries in front of Imtiyaz because she knows that he will take care of her financial burdens? It was just so typical of her to call & shed a few tears saying Seema was insulting her? If Suhana had an ounce of dignity or respect, she would have kept things to herself & had tried taking care of the business on her own. Just because Suhana knows she has Imtiyaz’s support, she thinks no one is entitled to say anything to her, not even her father! It is amusing that Suhana didn’t mind estranging her father because she got another Godfather who now deems her as his responsibility!

The writer is now trying to present Suhana as a damsel in distress because Rameez is totally different to what she expected him to be but then again, that is her own fault isn’t it, because she very well knew what sort of an irresponsible person Rameez was, so why did she get married to him expecting him to change? It is funny, Suhana was unhappy with Imtiyaz even after he was taking care of everything that she ever wanted & now she is again unhappy with the man of her dreams because he is not what she expected him to be & he isn’t changing? To be honest, when I see her mother in law scheming with Rameez so that Suhana keeps on working makes me think it definitely serves her right!

Imtiyaz really should have known better. It was sad that Suhana ended up ruining Seema & Imtiyaz’s relationship once again & what’s bizarre was that she chose to play innocent saying she had no idea why Imtiyaz took such a decision, like really? Seema did the right thing by barging into her home & insulting her because this is exactly what she deserves but unfortunately, Suhana is beizzati proof! Talat leaves me speechless, she insults Suhana & then scurries back to pacify her, no wonder why Suhana is so messed up, because her parents failed at parenting!

The preview of the next episode was filled with cringe alerts too. Suhana will once again come face to face with her father, seriously? We are done with Suhana’s mohim of seeking izzat for her good-for-nothing spouse jiss ki wo khud izzat nahi karti. Also, in the preview Suhana was heard saying ‘Imtiyaz ne mujhe chora, tum to mujhe nahi choro ge na’, seriously? Is she really implying that Imtiyaz was disloyal & not sincere with her? Is she using that card to play the victim again? Has she actually forgotten that she created a havoc in Imtiyaz’s life & cheated on him because of which he set her free basically doing her a favor so that she can be with Rameez but oh well, what can be expected from such a conceited, arrogant & selfish character. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Teri Raza.

Baaghi Episode 24 Review – Overload of Majbooris

Every week I tune into this drama hoping that it will give me something interesting to watch and talk about but Baaghi has turned out to be one of the most overrated dramas of this season. The script isn’t just dull and repetitive but also lacks depth altogether, the dialogues are too plain, the scenarios never have anything new to offer, the focus has been entirely on Kanwal’s character yet her character is one-dimensional just like all the other characters in the play and the fact that the writer has left no stone unturned to plead Kanwal’s case makes this drama even more unappealing. The cautious approach of the writer is the biggest reason for this lackluster script. Also, the pace of the drama is painfully slow and the scenes covering Kanwal’s videos are stretched for no reason. Kanwal’s character is more annoying than interesting and the screenplay does not have the kind of flow you would expect it to have since I expected better from a writer like Umera Ahmed. There are dramas in which every character has a story to tell and then there are dramas like Baaghi in which even the leading characters don’t have a definite story. Kanwal for instance has been tagged as “baaghi” for some reason yet her life is constantly being driven by the people around her, her strengths have been relegated to the background and her weaknesses have been accentuated to such an extent that her character has lost all its appeal.

This episode showed how Kanwal’s younger brother had changed over the years and it is easy to tell where this track is leading. Kanwal and Shehryar have grown closer in all these years but their conversations still revolve around the same issues! Even after all this time Shehryar still asks Kanwal the same question he was asking few years back!! Kanwal’s pappi pait dialogues fell completely flat since the overload of majbooris in every episode doesn’t help her track in any way.

At the end of the day we all watch dramas because we want to be entertained and there are a lot of dramas with serious storylines which keep the viewers engaged but for me Baaghi is definitely not such a drama. Saba Qamar has given better performances in her career and has definitely played more meaty roles as well. Watching her mimic Qandeel Baloch is just plain sad because she is capable of so much more. I feel that the producers completely failed to tell Qandeel’s story in an impactful manner because they were too busy “covering up” for some reason! This drama is definitely a winner in the ratings race but personally I have always found it really difficult to sit through almost all the episodes of Baaghi. It is getting more annoying with every passing episode and therefore this will be my last review of Baaghi. I would like to thank all those wonderful readers who read my reviews and gave me their feedback even when they were not following the drama.

Dar Si Jati Hei Sila Episode 9 Review – Right On Point!

Dar Si Jati Hei Sila continues to be one of the most intelligently written plays on air at the moment. The variety of characters, impressive screenplay and realistic performances make this drama a must watch. The drama has also picked up pace and unlike before every episode offers something new. Tonight’s episode focused on Bari Aapa’s bizarre proposal which was readily accepted by those members of the family who thought that Sila and Joi’s marriage will help further their interests in some way. Everyone’s reaction was different and interesting in their own way. All these reactions were covered impressively as well.

I am glad that it wasn’t a Sila against the word kind of a situation but there were plenty of people who could see just how inappropriate and unfair this decision was. The fact that the writer has told this story without any reservations and has allowed the viewers to draw conclusions from different events makes it more attractive. Raheel and Zaini once again did whatever they could to help Sila, Sadia did whatever she thought would make Joi change his mind and Tullo and Noshi supported the decision because both of them want to see Raheel and Zaini getting married. Sikandar’s reaction did not come as a surprise as well since he trusts Joi and he would be happy to hand over his responsibilities to him.

Zaini’s father’s character is another one which is being revealed gradually and is fast becoming my favorite since he is the only one who can see that Joi isn’t as harmless as he appears to be and also someone who truly values his daughter although that is not the norm in Noor Manzil! His reaction when Noshi told him what was going on in the house was priceless. Also, when Bari Aapa told him all those lies, he chose to trust his own daughter. This went to show that how a father’s trust and faith in his daughter can shape up her personality in a good way. Although everyone blames Sila for the “flaws” in her personality but no one except Zaini can see that her father is the one who is actually responsible for them. This could be because Zaini knows what it’s like to have a father who loves and supports you. The only reason why Sadia and Sila are in this situation is that the man in their lives who is supposed to look after them hasn’t only abandoned them but also holds them responsible for whatever goes wrong in his life.

Like every other episode of this drama, this episode too had many meaningful conversations which revealed a little bit more about the characters. Zaini feels frustrated now because she thinks that Sila is not even trying to change the situation she is in and at the same time she also feels that Sila is stronger than Raheel since she had the guts to tell her father that she did not want to get married to Raheel. While Raheel has “forgiven” Sila, his mother has not been able to do so. It was ironic how Bari Aapa made up so many stories after seeing Raheel and Zaini together but she can never tell what kind of a person Joi is even when she watches him do something which is anything but normal! Bari Aapa’s “blind love” for Joi is the main reason why even those people in the house who can see that he is a twisted character decide to keep their opinion to themselves. Joi constantly devises plans to put Sadia in difficult situations and he always executes them confidently because he knows that he has the support of his Aapa!

Overall, this was another brilliant episode of Dar Si Jati Hei Sila with some exceptional performances to its credit. The director Kashif Nisar has done complete justice to Bee Gul’s script and the honesty with which all the actors have translated their characters on screen clearly shows in the final product. Noor-ul-Hassan’s solid performance as Saleem in this play and his brilliant performances in Aangan and Meeras have completely won me over. Nauman Ijaz, Sakina Samo, Saman Ansari, Aamna Malick, Munazzah Arif and Yumna Zaidi’s performances have been faultless throughout.

The preview of the next episode was powerful. Looking forward to how the story unfolds from here on.
