Sang e Marmar Episode 22 Review – New Beginnings!

Sang e Marmar Episode 22

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.

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!
