Shayyad Episode 13 Review – True Love Never Dies!

Saad and Hani finally met in this episode and the way this reunion was covered was absolutely flawless. Apart from some of the scenes which were stretched yet again, this episode as a whole was filled with meaningful scenes which gave the viewers an insight into what all these characters were going through at the moment. The background score was intoxicating throughout and the flashback scenes yet again were used effectively. The opening scene of this episode was detailed and covered a great deal from Saad’s first impression to his final judgment about what kind of a relationship Salar and Hani had.

Saad and Salar’s meeting, Saad knowing the truth even though Hani tried her best to hide it, Hani’s time alone and Tania’s rising curiosity were the highlights of this episode. The opening scene showed why Saad felt the need to go and see Hani right away; he could tell that there was something wrong when he heard his mother complaint how Hani did not stay in touch with her family any more. Saad’s mature approach this time around showed just how much he had changed. Although he still loved Hani just the way he did so many years back and he could also tell that Hani wasn’t happy with Salar but even then he did not get too emotional. Hani’s body language and expressions said a great deal about how she felt when Salar touched her; this was definitely not love but she was really scared of this man. The scene in which she entered her room and remembered all the beautiful moments she had shared with her best friend but reacted very differently when she came across Salar’s portrait was one of the most brilliantly directed and beautifully written scenes of this episode. When Hani made that sketch she was head over heels in love but now when she looked at it, it was almost as if she realized how wrong her opinion about this man was. The few scenes which covered Salar’s behavior towards Hani after their marriage couldn’t have been more to the point yet they managed to get the message across quite clearly. Also, Saad’s observation when he entered Hani’s house and few of his dialogues said a great deal about his accurate assessment about Salar’s personality. Sadia Khan performance was up to the mark tonight which made it easier for me to connect to her character. Uzair Jaswal has been underplaying Saad’s character right from the get-go which makes it even more likeable.

Tania had no idea that Hani was the love of Saad’s life therefore their conversations were quite interesting. The fact that Saad did not even mention Hani to Tania all this time went to show that he was never close to Tania which makes me wonder how long this relationship will last. Tania loves Saad the way he loves Hani therefore it won’t be surprising if she is willing to do whatever it takes to make him happy. Tania’s character is an interesting addition to Hani and Saad’s track since she is quite likeable. Mahpara’s scenes once again showed how she felt every time she met Shehryar or perhaps every time someone was getting married! The scene covering Shehryar and Mahpara’s meeting was stretched a lot and it didn’t have anything new to offer. While I understand Mahpara’s character and it has always made perfect sense but so far it doesn’t have a bigger role to play in the picture and her scenes always focus on one aspect of her personality.

Shayyad has managed to achieve what Bin Roye couldn’t by translating the story of undying love on screen in an impressive manner. These two plays have some similarities but Shayyad is a clear winner because of its solid storyline in particular as well as characters which are easy to connect to. Saad and Hani’s love story gets more interesting and intriguing with every passing episode and you can’t help rooting for them.
The preview of the next episode showed how Hani’s married life actually was like. Waiting to see more of Nauman Ijaz and can’t wait to find out what Saad is going to do next!

Aangan Episode 12 Review – A Meaningful Drama!

Ohkay so, it was yet another interesting episode of Aangan. The pace is great & since the writer has so much to tell & convey, you really never get bored because so much is happening for everyone to relate to. I enjoy watching Aangan, definitely for direction, acting, characters & situations but also for the fact that you can’t really keep track of time while watching its episodes. It sure is a treat to watch with everyone excelling in their respective jobs!

The highlight of this episode was Hajra & all that she said & did. Firstly, she steered Zaitoon clear of the misunderstanding that she had about Hajra’s pregnancy. Though that conversation was amusing but the best thing for me was that the moment Hajra found out that both Abba Jee & Zaitoon had no idea about what Hajra & Sajjad were expecting, Hajra hurried in informing Sajjad about it so that he stops feeling bitter about his parent’s ignorance which actually was their oblivion!

I loved the conversation Hajra had with Faseeha. She not only tried to tell Faseeha her perspective but also told her to stop judging Zoya because for her both Shaina & Zoya were the same. Hajra very well knows what her position is in the house & what everyone expects from her. It is like Hajra has tuned herself to fix things for everyone without them even knowing because she sees it as her responsibility. Even though Aqdas told his mother that he won’t be getting married to Zoya, he still didn’t hold back in letting her know that her reasons for refusal were unconvincing!

I found Laila’s offer to gift Zoya her jewellery really sweet. Even though she felt a little sad when she heard Rubina’s plans of saving her jewellery for her kids, she immediately snapped out of it & told Zaitoon what she had on her mind, which was beautiful.

Oh well, Zahid is giving Laila a hard time. Obviously, since Zahid is so used to making excuses for not working, he is nitpicking & magnifying every little detail to earn himself a termination letter but Laila is still putting up with him. At least Rubina is the voice of reason in their family unit & she once again reminded him of his responisibility which he had towards Zoya, since now her wedding was in talks.

Aqdas’s proposal not only made Zoya happy but his guidance & support also served as a boost of confidence, because of which she decided to publish her stories using her own name. It showed that Zoya actually wanted someone to put faith in her & just a few conversations here & there with Aqdas did it for her. Zoya could obviously feel the change in Aqdas’s tone but Shaina told her that everything was going to be alright. No matter what the circumstances are, Zoya & Shaina’s discussions about everything are a treat to watch. Finally Faseeha gave up & agreed for Aqdas’s marriage with Zoya. It was sweet that she accepted the fact that Zoya made her son happy & she decided to curb her dislikes.

Another highlight of this episode was a small but meaningful conversation between Hajra & Sajjad about Laila & Asim, where Hajra told Sajjad to ask whether Asim has had his tests done or not. I am sure this aspect was deliberately but rightfully added by the writer because this thing is prevalant in our society where everyone blames a woman for the delay in having a baby but everyone gives a clean chit to the man. It sure was a nice addition to the set of messages this drama imparts!

Well, the preview of the next episode suggested that hardships are far from being over for both Aqdas & Zoya. I really can’t wait to see that loud & vibrant wedding which we are shown in the OST. Sadaan & Afrah’s scenes & conversations are a bit too repetitive. Even though they get a very limited screen time but since Afrah’s proposals is all that they talk about, it makes their scenes unnecessary. Irsa Ghazal is the star of this show & it is commendable that she has given such a perfect treatment to Hajra’s character, not sure if anyone else could’ve done a job so well. I love Iffat Omar’s acting too & Uzma Hassan is doing a wonderful job as well. I really enjoyed watching this episode & can’t wait to see more. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Aangan.

O Rangreza Episode 27 Review – Tasteless Chewing Gum!

Ohkay so, just when I was thinking about this entire journey like from where it began to where it has come now, the only apt description that came to my mind about it was ‘tasteless chewing gum’. I still remember how everyone including me in the beginning was raving about the ‘flavors’ that this drama had but look what has happened to it, a perfect example is that of chewing gum which loses its taste after being eaten for a while & loses its elasticity as well after being stretched too far & that my friends is what O Rangreza has reduced to!

I mean seriously, what do we have to do by seeing this anoki pagal family in financial crisis? Tipu spent money & then the entire family was going mad about it? If that was the case, why didn’t anyone bother keeping a check on Tipu before, especially Qasim with the help of Meena because Meena had spent enough time with Tipu to know that he was upto something? Qasim sirf hinhinanay aur minminanay ke liye rakha hua tha kya? Also, I must say the editing of this episode was just so baddd!!!

Now that Qasim is out of his kurtas & into his small sized dress shirts, his character has still shown zero growth. Yes, he was a kind hearted person before & he is a kind hearted person now too but still, some authority some command over things? All he did was send Tipu away & that’s it? What about all the other storms that have surrounded this family?

Oh dear, the amount of screaming that Mumtaz did left a hole in my ear I am pretty sure. Once again, Mumtaz found an easy way out; now that Sassi is crossing all the boundaries, she easily blamed Sonia for it? Ummm how about blaming your loser husband who was smitten by heroine & her adayein? Because he is the one who helped Sassi getting fascinated by Sonia Jahan. In the beginning Khayyam still showed some concerns about Sassi & the path that she was walking on but now, his aloofness is not only bizarre but idiotic too!

Psychotic Psyssi (Sassi) was now being conscious of her izzat without even thinking for a second before walking into a man’s house just like that? I am all for feminism but seriously, what the writer here is showing is totally twisted. I totally believe that Wajih should have stayed in his limits too but that implies on Psyssi as well. They can’t just show Wajih in a wrong light when Psyssi is equally responsible for giving Wajih the edge in the first place. There are certain boundaries that need to be respected by everyone irrespective of the gender, so not sure what the writer is trying to achieve here by showing Psyssi’s bebaaki & Wajih’s gandi neeyat!

I also don’t understand what is Psyssi’s issue with Sonia Jahan, like why is she torturing her & why has she turned against her? Sonia never said anything to her but is psychotic Psyssi se kya expect karna. Also, Psyssi is now getting jealous of Meena? Why? As far as I know, she was free from any such typical emotions to abb kya hua?

By showing everyone becoming a fan of Meena, the writer has contradicted himself. He was showing Psyssi as a strong, bold, unapologetically herself sort of a person who wanted to live life on her own terms, so why didn’t he show that even by being like that, she proved herself right & earned everyone’s support, respect & validation? Akhir mai to yehi dikhaya na ke typical si larki jo apni hadh mai rahay, khidmatain karay, ghar se kaam karay uske hi numbers bantay hain?LOL! I’m pretty sure the writer lost his chain of thought & forgot about what he wanted to show initially, hence the contradiction because even though Psyssi has fulfilled her dream, she has lost a place of hers in everyone’s heart, so kya faida hua writer ka kuch so called unique dikha ke?

Seriously, they should just end this drama & I am sure no one can deny the fact that O Rangreza has lost the purpose, it has lost the charm & has now turned out to be such a drama which people will only be associating one word with; bakwas. Please share your thoughts about this episode of O Rangreza.

Teri Raza Episode 30 Review – Disaster At Its Peak!

Ohkay so, I am going to ask a very serious & important question ke writer ne kya kha ke Suhana ka character likha tha? I mean seriously, one can only say Taubaafter seeing what this psychotic character is upto!

When I saw Suhana shedding tears I felt like throwing a punch on her face. She used to cry before, saying that her parents weren’t treating Rameez & Co. with respect, fine & now when her parents invited them over for dinner & treated them like a family, Suhana was again crying for a new set of reasons that she doesn’t want to go back, like seriously??? Does she even know how to be happy? Rameez was her so called happiness for which she forsake everything but now just because she has realized that Rameez was not an ideal & financially loaded man, the writer is giving her a clean chit, for what? Just because she has realized & apologized???

I think now that we have such weirdly named dramas like ‘Naseebon Jali’, ‘Mai Ma Nahi Banna Chahti’, no one would have batted an eyelid if the writer had named this drama as ‘Shadi Aik Gudda Guddi Ka Khel’, at least that would’ve made things crystal clear as to what the viewers should expect before tuning to this drama because this is exactly how Suhana is treating her marriage(s)!

Uf! This was the same father Suhana kicked out of her life because he called out on Rameez but now Suhana is like sticking to him, because she knows that only he is the one who can give her a luxury-laden life? If Suhana had known that her family wasn’t financially sound, she would have thought a million times before making a decision of leaving Rameez. No matter what her reasons are but she is acting like a typical rich spoiled brat who knows no matter what, she can do whatever she wants as her father is there.

It is amusing that now when Suhana has assessed Rameez & she has seen that he can’t even achieve an iota of wealth that Imtiyaz or Zafar have, she is now seeing him as a big mistake? Is she for real? When did Suhana Bibi become so practical that she decided to put everything before her feeling of ‘love’ for which she literally ruined everyone’s life & happiness!?!?! Suhana says she is sorry & does she really think that is going to be an excuse enough for another stuffed up marriage? LOL! I guess she was so adamant to have Rameez Badtameezrespected, that she forgot to bring out the best in him & patiently teach him how to be responsible!

Seema & Jeena both need to get a life. They act like bunch of sore insecure losers who are obsessed with Suhana but then again, since the writer here is giving Suhana a clean chit every single time, no wonder why both Seema & Jeena are paranoid & dread that Suhana might come as a tsunami & wipe away their happiness!

I think if the writer really wants to convey a right message by showing what happens if someone goes against the Will of Allah, she should give Suhana a miserable ending where everyone else around is happy & settled & she is the one sulking alone, but I am pretty sure this won’t be happening as now the writer will show that by committing Halala, Suhana finally accepted Allah’s Raza after trying, testing & failing at her own raza. Seriously, hideousness just touched a sky! Please share your thoughts about this episode of Teri Raza & I wish both Shehroz & especially Sanam had used their vocal chords miserly because their high pitched voices are intolerable!

Dar Si Jati Hei Sila Episode 12 – Extremely Emotional!

This drama has some of the most amazing performances to its credit and although all the actors are doing complete justice to their characters but Yumna Zaidi clearly stands out the most and manages to steal the show every single time. Yumna Zaidi deserves an award for her performance in this drama because even when she has to translate Sila’s feelings on screen without uttering a single dialogue she does so exceptionally well.

This episode showed that Sila was still in shock, staying silent was her way of protesting and taking control of a situation she had absolutely no control over. Raheel and Sila’s scenes together were brilliantly directed and acted-out. Raheel has made up his mind and nothing his mother says will change his point of view. He no longer sees Sila as an annoying person who cannot even look out for her own self but he can see that she is someone who needs help and support. Raheel supports Sila not because he feels sorry for her but because he genuinely cares for her which makes his character truly likeable. If it wasn’t for Zaini’s lecture, Raheel wouldn’t have seen things differently. I love the contrast between the old generation and the new one, they look at things in a completely different manner. While Bari Aapa spends all her time and energy belittling Sila and Sadia, Raheel and Zaini invest their efforts into understanding the reasons behind Sila’s strange behaviour in particular and practically help out whenever possible.

Although Sila didn’t say a single word tonight but everything that she was going through was easy to relate to and understand because of the way these scenes had been written and directed. Sila has definitely fallen for Raheel, the way she looks at him says a great deal about how she feels about him. After finding out the truth about Hatim, Sila’s attitude towards him changed completely, something which Hatim sensed instantly. Hatim’s scenes were very touching as well. He was being punished for something which wasn’t his fault at all and he could only wonder why his mother never loved him. Sadia constantly took out his frustrations and anger on him making him a scapegoat because she blames him for all of her problems. The actor playing Hatim’s role has also been performing superbly, he is well-suited for the role and unlike many other newcomers his age, his focus is entirely on his performance. Saman Ansari continues to impress as Sadia and Nauman Ijaz is beyond brilliant as Joi. Everyone’s acting in this drama is completely natural.

Bari Aapa has decided that Joi and Sila should not get married and she was shown busy finding the perfect match for her perfect brother! Bari Aapa is the one responsible for the closed and suffocating environment in Noor Manzil. She is the one who brought Joi to this haveli and she is the one he gets all his powers from. Bari Aapa’s husband doesn’t have a bigger role to play in the house, he is too busy running the business and is hardly around which is why he has never noticed what goes on around the house.

This episode ended at an interesting note. Overall, this episode was emotional and effective as usual. I must say that while watching tonight’s episode I was thinking about all those girls who are abused on daily basis within their own homes. I absolutely love this show because it has so much going for it. Making such dramas isn’t easy but team Dar Si Jati Hei Sila has done a commendable job so far. The preview of the next episode yet again suggested that Raheel might be the first one to find out what is going on between Joi and Sadia. Raheel and Zaini’s characters have been etched-out brilliantly and translated on screen beautifully. They have to be the best on-screen characters of this season.
