Teri Raza Episode 7 Review – Chaat Masala!

Oh well, before even discussing this entire episode, I would like to talk about the note at which this episode ended; Suhana being distressed that the chef served Omlette & Ghee-clad Parathas for the breakfast & it was such a big deal & such a suspense provoker that the director decided to stop rolling the cameras for this episode, thinking people would be thrilled to see how this breakfast would turn out to be next week? LOL! I mean seriously, in the times when we get dramas that are exploring social issues, that are exploring new genres, we have been offered this drama where Chaat Masala ends up being a point of discussion. I must commend the writer for her creativity & the producers for literally wasting their money on a script like this!!!

So, this episode was all about Suhana & her roni boothi (forlorn face), yes, I won’t be sugarcoating because that’s what dramas & characters like these do to me. Paa Mmtyaz heard Suhana’s beautiful opinion about him & he was so hurt that he chose to discuss it with his mother like a teenager. Seriously, I still can’t wrap my heard around the fact that what was Imtiyaz thinking when he chose to get married to Suhana? Like he was wise enough to know that she is a girl half his age, so her priorities, her lifestyle, her routine, her likes & her dislikes are going to be completely opposite to his, so how did he expect her to become a ‘buddhi rooh’like him that too in the beginning of the marriage when girls are on top of the world usually & enjoy the new routine so much?

I also wonder why did Imtiyaz get married? Like did he get married to get over with the boredom in his life? Or did he get married to have his wife placed as a show-piece in his house so that everyone knows that he owns that sort of showpiece too? Imtiyaz’s emphasis on work-load was so forced, like seriously, no matter how much of a workoholic you are, when you get married, even you get excited & plan things/activities beforehand with your wife-to-be. What was the point of showing Imtiyaz as such a well-established & financially sound man when he couldn’t even take a day off after his marriage to give his wife some time to adjust to their new life?

Finally, Imtiyaz let Suhana know that the reason why he chose to sleep on a sofa in the study was because he overheard her & that was the reason why Suhana felt she needed to do chores like fill the water glass for him at night to compensate? Seriously? As much as I see the problems with Imtiyaz’s forced innocence at the age of 40, I see just as many problems with Suhana too. Yes, they are showing that they both are incompatible but then again, it brings me to my point again that there was no reason for this marriage to happen. Suhana chose to go for this marriage to avoid Badshaghuni but isn’t she realizing that obsessing over herbadtameez ex-boyfriend after her marriage is a bigger Badshaghuni too? Sporting a roni boothi throughout the day is another bigger Badshaghuni that can even tick the viewers off? Seriously at one point I was so frustrated with her expressions that I chose to forward her scenes! Also, what’s with the besharmi where she is openly saying that ‘Rameez mere dil mai hai’, ‘Suhana Rameez ki hai’ seriously? That guy literally called you a gold-digger & still believes in that & you’re crying over not being able to be with him?

Oh well, the writer here is showing how issues can be created over non-issues. Sleeping routines, Andas, Omlettes, Chaat Masalas, TV Shows & then Dressing, all these things can cause irreparable dent in your marriage which is only going to lead you to divorce. Seriously? There’s a limit to fooling viewers & there’s a limit to insulting the intelligence of the viewers as well. I laughed out loud when Suhana showed up in a Kurti & Jeans after being told that it was a corporate dinner, whereas in the scene where Imtiyaz told her about it, she was dressed perfectly for the occasion, but like I said, the writer is taking pride in turning the non-issues into issues, therefore that scene had to be added. Throughout the episode, Suhana was dressed as a newly wedded girl but the moment her husband tells her that they are going out for a dinner, she decides to pull out the university student in her? LOL!

So, the salty cousin is working with Imtiyaz & since she is so obsessed with Suhana, she can’t stop talking (read low-key badmouthing) about her. I am sure she is still salty that Suhana got married to the Budhi Rooh Pa Mmtyaz but I am sure she got the job in his office for a reason because later when Suhana & Imtiyaz will part ways, she will fill in the blank in Mmtyaz’s life. Oh the story is so new, so unique, so fresh, so unpredictable, it excites me to no end! Please share your thoughts about this episode of Teri Raza & do let me know if you guys have found out the purpose of this drama, like I still am trying to find out what the writer was thinking & what was she trying to convey!

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.

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!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka Episode 2 Review-Surprising!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka started at a rapid pace but I must admit, I was not expecting these many surprises already. We all saw the sudden engagement of Daniya and Armaan while Zaryab was pining for his lost love. The second episode featured the marriage ceremony of the two while Zaryab was crying in different cornersZaryab actually is a coward. Yes, the concept is that he is Ahsanon Talay Daba Larka and for this very reason he did not respect his love enough. But he should have given a thought to Armaan’s feelings. How could he do this to Armaan whom he loves more than anyone? Since the whole Islamabad is familiar with Zaryab and Daniya’s affair, why he didn’t think of the fact that someone will tell Armaan eventually? Daniya was also a very unreasonable person. She was begging Zaryab to do something on her mehendi. She could have tried a bit earlier or the simple way out was to talk it out with Armaan. Armaan told her how much he loves Zaryab, so Daniya should have told him the truth. But well, then there would be no drama.

Armaan knew about the situation suddenly after bringing Daniya home. The funny thing is they got Nikkahfied in the morning but reached their home at night. He was as quick in taking decisions as his brother is slow. Instead of handling everything like a mature person, he divorced Daniya. He didn’t even discuss it with Zaryab before taking such a huge step.
