Shayyad Episode 12 Review – Weham!

Tonight’s episode of Shayyad focused entirely on Saad; all the scenes covering Saad’s track showed how even after all these years he had not moved on. Even though he termed his feelings for Hani as infatuation, his mohabbat a “weham” and kept on saying things to prove that he was incapable of feeling anything for anyone any more but the fact is that his past is still an important part of his present. Saad only refused to get married to Bubbly because he had still not forgiven his mother for the logic she gave him so many years back when she told him why she didn’t want him to get married to Hani. The situations covering Saad’s feelings were written really well but they could have been translated on screen more effectively. Uzair Jaswal’s acting wasn’t as impressive tonight as it has been throughout perhaps because some of the scenes were stretched.

Tania’s role is interesting; a cute and cheerful girl who comes from a liberal family and has no idea what she is getting herself into. Her character is poles apart from that of Saad but bears a striking resemblance to Saad’s past life and personality. However, the actress playing Tania’s role has a long way to go and her make-up also did not compliment her looks at all, the heavy contouring was actually distracting. She is cute and has tons of confidence but her acting left a lot to be desired. This episode opened with Tania trying to find out if Saad was in love with anyone and very soon she proposed to him. Even after Saad rejected her proposal, Tania’s reaction was too “cool” which killed the overall impact this scene and Saad’s dialogue could have had! There were a lot of dialogues tonight which were short, perfectly timed and beautifully written but they were not covered potently which was a huge disappointment.

Dada Ji’s scenes tonight were entertaining as usual and provided some light moments. Irfan Khoosat is absolutely adorable as Dada Ji and it is great watching him play a role like this one since he has been continuously playing serious roles in dramas recently. Mahpara yet again tried to convince Dada Ji that the family’s dignity was at stake because Saad’s wife-to-be was someone who had spent her whole life abroad but just like always Dada Ji’s approach was open-minded as well as non-serious which was refreshing. I liked the way Saad’s mother’s reaction and later on her resignation was covered, I have always found it really easy to connect to her character.

 

The overall pace of tonight’s episode was slow, some of the scenes could have been wrapped up more quickly. After the powerful episode last week, I was expecting tonight’s episode to be more emotionally charged. This episode also didn’t have the kind of flow which keeps you too engaged and interested. The fact that Salar and Hani were completely missing from this episode also left a vacuum. The flashback scenes however were used effectively throughout. Uzair Jaswal’s performance tonight wasn’t as powerful as it has been previously but Saad’s journey was penned down perfectly; a man who was trying really hard to break free from his past but was constantly reminded of the love of his life especially after he came back to the house. This episode ended with Saad ultimately giving into his feelings. The preview of the upcoming episode looked promising and I am looking forward to it. I am really curious to find out how Hani’s life has been like all these years and what turn Saad and Hani’s relationship will take now.

O Rangreza Episode 26 Review – Torture At Its Peak!

Seriously, who would’ve thought that behind such colorful, attractive & vibrant promotional posters, there would be a story which would make no sense & become torturous to tune to. This episode was nothing but a filler. I read somewhere that Sajjal Ali told about O Rangreza ending at 26th episode? So why didn’t it end tonight? Hum TV has really gone downhill & the quality of their dramas has deteriorated a great deal. It is unfortunate that this drama didn’t end at a right time & is further going to test our patience!

Well, Saji Gul might have been unsuccessful at conveying whatever he wanted to but he surely has succeeded in making a point about how kids should NOT BE raised because both Sassi & Tipu are any parents’ nightmare & even Mumtaz & Khayyam as parents are any child’s nightmare too!!!

This entire Meena being a perfect wife scenario is so forced & it is way too evident because they decided to extend the drama. I am sure this whole track was added unnecessarily because how is it contributing the story is still not clear. Qasim changed from Kurtas to Suits but his personality remains the same – dud!

Sassi’s getting mistreated & I feel this is what she deserves but then again, her spat with Wajih was so unconvincing. Sassi has been giving Khayyam a hard time so it is absolutely ridiculous to show that she would flip out at a single comment that Wajih made about her father not doing a good job at script writing. Seriously? Sassi ke dil mai Khayyam ke liye itni mohabbat aur izzat kaisay? Also, Wajih telling Sassi later that she succeeded in proving him wrong had me yawning because it was so bizarre. Like why was he even testing her in the first place? Koi aur kaam nahi tha kya!?!

I am glad that Mumtaz is going to go to police station in the next episode because that’s what she deserves for being brain-dead. Kya pata 1 2 danday kha ke inki ankhain khul jayein & she would then be able to stop Tipu from fooling her? I swear abb inki haveli bikkay ya zewar, I really don’t care!

Qasim is still allowing Sassi to boss him around. Also, like I predicted, she won’t miss a chance to create misunderstandings between Qasim & Meena & this is exactly what she did. Not sure if anyone is going to take charge of the situation & call spade a spade by stopping Sassi from ruining other’s lives. It looks like they all are pathetically obsessed with getting tortured & live for it.

Uf! Sorry but in stead of feeling sorry for Sonia Jahan, I ended up feeling annoyed matlab ke ye kya hai, ufff! Anyways, please share your thoughts about this hideous episode of O Rangreza, lol as if bara masterpiece tha jisay extend kar diya gaya hai! Bizarre!

Teri Raza Episode 29 Review – Ridiculous!

Ohkay so, yet another ridiculous episode filled with filler situations. I really do not understand why this drama hasn’t ended yet? Or are they aiming for 30+ episodes? The story (if there was one) has been going around in circles & everyone’s fixation with Suhana is bizarre. I still do not understand what the writer is trying to convey here!?!

It is absurd that every single time Suhana lets Rameez fool her? She is shown to be someone who is quite mature & analytical (supposedly), so why can’t she see that Rameez is a good-for-nothing who can only take loans to make her happy? Suhana cried a bucket & immediately Rameez arranged funds for her boutique, so why didn’t she even bother finding out how did he do so?

Seema closed the chapter of Suhana from her & Imtiyaz’s life, so what was the need to tell Jeena to invest in Suhana’s business? Jeena who got rejected by Rameez & insulted by Suhana time & again decided to help Suhana of all the people? If she had so much spare money, she could’ve invested it in a more lucrative business in stead of Suhana’s which is basically running on donations!

The way Suhana speaks about HER boutique as if she invested her money in it & ran the show without anyone’s help makes me laugh a lot. She really is delusional I must say. Time & again she gets taunted by Rameez yet she believes in him, but then it serves her right. I must say, the way the writer has shown zero growth in all these characters is something. The drama is about to end but Rameez stays good for nothing till now. Suhana stays a bechari & Imtiyaz stays andha. Commendable isn’t it?

I must say the writer should never take a pen in her hand & attempt writing again if this is what she has come up with. I am sure this is going to turn into Halala story only to show that Suhana finally accepted & chose Allah’s raza over her own raza which is Imtiyaz over Rameez. Please don’t tell me the writer is trying to justify Halala here & glorifying it by showing that if your second marriage doesn’t work, you always have an option of going back to your ex-husband? It is sickening that the writer is showing Suhana as a victim who is now suffering so much due to her wrong decision & in the end she will have a happy ending with Imtiyaz, without paying for all the wrongs that she has done. It is ridiculously cheap & petty!!! Anyways, the only best thing that happened in this episode was Rameez’s mother’s comment about Suhana, that she is a zehni mareez, couldn’t agree more! Share your thoughts.

Dar Si Jati Hei Sila Episode 11 Review – Powerful!

This episode reminded me of Martin Luther King’s famous quote, ” The silence of the good people is more dangerous than the brutality of the bad people.” Tonight, watching Taya Abu feel for Sila and genuinely wanting to help her but failing to do so since he lets his wife have her way showed that the few people in the house who could see that Sila wanted love and attention more than anything else were completely “helpless”. Zaini, Zaini’s father and even Raheel are few such people who can see that Sila isn’t “pagal” and they can also see that Joi isn’t as perfect and harmless as Bari Aapa would want everyone to think he is, yet, all these people cannot fight Sila’s war for her because they can only go to a certain extent and don’t have much of a say in the house. The only person who could have exercised more power is Sila’s Taya but he is no match for his wife. Even with a house full of people who want to help Sila, Sila feels vulnerable and insecure because those people who are constantly belittling and harassing her are much more vocal and powerful.

Just like every other episode of this drama, this one too was truly upsetting. Watching Sila go through all the mental turmoil especially after watching her being so calm and even happy with people like Zaini and Raheel, served as an ugly reminder of how a young girl’s personality shapes up when she is living in a house where she does not feel safe and protected. For the first time Zaini did not speak her mind and was willing to go along with whatever her mother had planned for her. It was almost as if she was tired of fighting since she was constantly facing situations in which she was getting very little support from people around her. Although Zaini’s father supported her throughout but even then perhaps watching everyone accept the prospect of Sila and Joi’s marriage so easily disturbed her. It seemed like she had given up on this family and didn’t want to waste her energy arguing any more. She did try to make Sila realize that she deserved better but this time around she didn’t present her case with the same enthusiasm as she did before.

The scene in which Raheel was teaching Sila was one of my favorite scenes from this episode because it showed a side of Sila which we rarely get to see and it also showed how easy it was for Joi to make Sila uncomfortable and fearful. Raheel believes in Sila and he could also see how Sila reacted when Joi entered the room. It is absolutely refreshing watching so many intelligent characters in this play. Bari Aapa got plenty of screen time in this episode and all her scenes showed how she perceived everything the way it suited her. She had decided not to feel anything for anyone around her except Joi a long time back therefore she cannot see what is going on around her. Zaini’s father yet again questioned Joi but no one else thought on those lines.

The scene covering Sadia’s confession was very well directed and acted-out. Sila finally knows the reason why her mother cannot take a stand for her or for herself and why she has to constantly please a man who she hates. If everyone found out that Hathim was Joi’s son, no one will point fingers at Joi, he will make up a story to save himself and everyone will believe him but Sadia will immediately get divorced and will be abandoned by this family. Sadia is not strong enough to raise these children on her own or face the consequences therefore she continues to trade her self-respect and dignity in return for Joi’s silence.

Dar Si Jati Hei Sila has a powerful script, the director Kashif Nisar has given this drama the right treatment and all the actors have been performing brilliantly. The portrayals are realistic and impactful which is why there are times when you completely forget that you are watching a drama.

Khudgarz Episode 9 & 10 Review – Going Strong!

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

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

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

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

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

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