Yaar e Bewafa Episode 01 Review – A Strong Start!

Ohkay so, the production of Wajahat Rauf, direction of Zeeshan Ali & the writing of Mohsin Ali, Yaar e Bewafa commenced last night & I must say it most certainly had a great start. From writing in terms of introduction to the characters & their scenarios, to direction, everything was spot on & what I actually enjoyed the most about the first episode of this drama was how the director kept things simple, minimal & realistic. While watching this episode I never once felt that I needed to know more about the characters because everything that was important was given out perfectly without making it too obvious that they were trying hard to let us know who the characters are & what they’re are going through. I liked the effortless approach of the director in the first episode & I hope that he has given this sort of treatment to the rest of the drama as well.

So, in the very first episode, the two couples & their stories got introduced. The first couple of Zaid ( Imran Abbas) & Fizza ( Arij Fatima) & the other one of Amna ( Sara Khan) & Saleem (Saleem Mairaj). Zaid & Fizza’s family consists of Zaid’s mother (Samina Ahmed) & their son & they are trying hard to make the ends meet. At first, when you get an insight into Fizza’s character, you feel she is eager & desperate because being a mother, she wants to give her son a better life but as you get to know more about her, you find out about the baggage that she is carrying. Fizza is a school teacher & Zaid is an employee in a firm but as much as they both earn, it goes into the household expenditures. Fizza & Zaid also have a future plan that they both are working on, which is for Zaid to settle in Australia so that he can provide better lifestyle for his family. Fizza & Zaid both have the same vision & believe in achieving their goals together with each other’s support.

Things get tougher for both Zaid & Fizza when the immigration agent Rashid tells them to arrange a good amount of money to pay for a semester fee of the university so that Zaid can get his visa. Even though Zaid’s friend tries to warn him of the frauds that tend to happen in this industry, Zaid still blindly trusts his agent as he guarantees him the visa which puts Zaid’s heart to ease. Also, the fact that Fizza happens to be so adamant on this plan pushes Zaid to such an extreme that he doesn’t even consider the possibility of things going wrong.

Amna is married to Saleem, a factory worker who keeps on getting into trouble because of his temperament. Amna tries to support her husband & stand by him through thick & thin but it seems he doesn’t really appreciate what she does for his sake. Amna & Saleem also have a son. It looks like Amna has accepted her fate with a husband like Saleem & that is why even when her Aunt tries to knock some sense into her, Amna denies everything & assures her that she is happy with her husband because he loves her a lot. The fact that Saleem shuns the hassle that Amna goes through to arrange his bail highlights the fact that he really doesn’t care much for her but Amna tries to tweak with the reality in order to present a decent picture of her life in front of people.

I must say I actually enjoyed seeing Fizza’s character & how her background story was revealed, it’s like you can’t be sure of her & she can be a grey character which I liked. At first I thought she was doing everything & pushing her husband so much because she wanted a better & secure future for her son & rightly so because like she said, every single day through different channels she got a reminder of all those luxuries that were missing from her son’s life but as I got to know more about her, I understood where she was coming from & everything she wanted was not only because of her son. At first when Fizza compared her life with the richer, it did make me feel that she was a bit too desperate but just a single visit to her parent’s house changed my perspective of her. At this point, I am not forming an opinion whether Fizza’s fixation with ‘better & secure future’ is right but seeing how she comes from a wealthy family showed that she did have her reasons.

Fizza left every single thing for Zaid’s sake & she settled for a very humble lifestyle because she loved him & just because she got desperate & visited her parents to ask for some financial help, she was reminded of all those claims that she made. Fizza’s father Kamal Wasif (Tahir Jatoi) a wealthy businessman, didn’t take a second to remind his daughter of what she said when she decided to get married to Zaid, obviously being in love did cloud Fizza’s judgment at that point & she actually thought that she’d be able to live happily ever after even in the most desperate situations but now when she has been married to Zaid for 5 years, she actually has realized that things aren’t as easy as she thought they’d be. The fact that Fizza comes from an affluent background & how she has settled for such a different lifestyle does justify her wants & needs because first off, she was used to all the luxuries & then comes the main reason, which is to prove her father wrong. All this while I thought Fizza was just someone who didn’t mind complaining but seeing how much effort she has put into this relationship & how much she has also sacrificed for this relationship, shows that she is keen on a better future as she wants to prove to her father that her decision was right. Fizza’s verdict saying ‘wo jeet gaye’ showed that she actually was striving so hard to make the most of this golden opportunity in order to tell her father that getting married to Zaid was not a wrong decision that she made & that Zaid was capable enough to provide a decent lifestyle for her.

Overall, the first episode of Yaar e Bewafa was really nice & I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. Zaid’s mother got to make a very little contribution in the episode but her presence was felt & I liked seeing her. The fact that Zaid wanted to keep her free from all the worries & seeing how decided to help Zaid only to see a smile on her son’s face was heart-warming. I do have a feeling that Zaid’s mother might be suffering from some sort of mental illness because the fact that she forgets things a bit too easily was highlighted subtly in this episode. I liked all the characters but I actually am interested to see more of Fizza because where she does come across as reasonable most of the times, she does give an irrational vibe at times too & I think that was balanced out by the writer beautifully because that is what made her character real. Imran Abbas, Sara Khan & Arij Fatima, all did a fantastic job because it looked like they all had such a great understanding of their characters that they actually owned them, like not even for a second I felt that one of them was struggling to fit into his or her character & may be that’s why I found everything quite effortless & realistic. Definitely impressed & definitely looking forward to the next episode. Please share your thoughts about the very first episode of Yaar e Bewafa.

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!

Alif Allah Aur Insaan Episode 39 – Review!

Ohkay so, finally this drama is headed towards an end & I can’t tell how relieved I am but it is sad to say that the direction of this drama has now become a joke. Everything is being tackled in such a sloppy fashion that you just can’t believe it is the same drama which started off on such an amazing note.

Well, Nazneen & Taimur got divorced & now I have lost count of how many divorcees are in this drama. Let’s count again, so, Shahzeb, Basit, Taimur, Nazneen, Zimmal & Ali (Zimmal’s first husband), whoa, that many! To be honest, Nazneen & her divorces have become a joke & looks like she will be losing her sanity as well! Haye koi isay new kurta khareed de!

Roshni has not only grown suspicious towards Shaheer, she even went on to do a little investigation herself, let’s see what she comes up with!

Reena finally came clean & revealed everything about her relationship with Nawazish. What Nawazish did was so bizarre but then he got what he asked for, but then no one really paid heed to what Reena was saying. Even though Reena’s parents make an appearance way too often but they are being treated as fillers & nothing else.

So, Shahzeb’s mother thinks that he should get married to the girl he refused to help. Zimmal came in search of peace & found Shahzeb & his mother. After Zimmal stumbled across Shahzeb, I already had a feeling that they both will end up together. Hmmm interesting!

Anyways, I can’t wait for this drama to be over now. Please share your thoughts about this episode.

Lal Ishq Episodes 12,13,14 Review – Awesome

As always, these episodes of Lal Ishq were absolutely flawless. The characters are eccentric, difficult, confused and yet so relatable, so endearing. To be honest, for quite a long time, this is the only drama that keeps you occupied in a trance for its full duration. There is a genius at work behind it and thus all the actors are absolutely perfect in their characterization. I wonder why is it not getting more appreciation than all the silly ones out there who have no substance to offer.

So Ansa Mehrunnisa is still herself and both her brother and son are hurt but she is stuck in time where Bali’s death to avenge Hukum’s murder is the only thing that will make her happy. Her ego is sky high and she is more patriarchal than any male landlord could ever be. In her eyes, revenge is above all other relations, even those who who are her own flesh and blood.

The way all characters are entwined is just amazing. They all shot at eachother when none of them really wanted to. Yawar Kamal was pained to hurt Punar and vice versa but the grip of Hukum’s murder is so strong that it has overtaken all the good feelings of today.

Punar and Rameen have both felt attraction for eachother but the “mard ka bacha” is just so shy and humble when it comes to expressing her feelings whereas Rameen is the strong one who is enjoying the attention and also seeing Punar uncomfortable. Aabi Khan is just amazing as the loving, shy, obedient Mehr Punar who is pretending to be aggressive and revengeful to make his controlling mother happy. Every expression and dialogue he delivers is just flawless.

Bali and Jajji have finally reached truce. Till they had not met, they were both suspicious of eachother but when they met, had a vent out of pent up emotions by hitting eachother, they could connect on a very sentimental level. They saw that both of them felt immense love and care for Farhad and Rameen and understood eachother much better. Bali has agreed to let his kids keep on thinking of Jajji as Iqbal, their father. He felt it was a small price to pay for the sacrifices Jajji has done for his children and he is filled with gratitude. In his eyes, Zohra’s death has settled his score with the Mehrs and they have nothing more to do with him. Little does he know that they are still blood thirsty for him.

Mahi wants to delay her marriage because she thinks she can stop Punar from killing Bali and getting murdered by him or his men or get punished by the state for murder. Even though Mehrunnisa does not pay any heed to what Mahi or anyone in the household thinks for that matter, Mahi still wants to do everything she can to put an end to this saga of bloodshed and let her brother lead a normal life. She has convinced Rameen of her cause and we will see in the next episode if she can get her proper message across to Farhad well and whether he would support her in this decision or not.

Aangan Episode 10 Review – Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Ohkay so, it was yet another fun episode of Aangan with the focus on one issue – Aqdas’s proposal for Shaina. I think now that the introductory part is over & every character has gotten enough coverage to show their nature, everyone has settled down emotionally & things are pretty calm in Zaitoon Manzil these days!

Before anything else, I have to discuss the assumption that Zaitoon made about Hajra. The dual meaning conversation that they both had where Zaitoon was talking about a baby & Hajra was discussing about Aqdas’s proposal was so hilarious. Zaitoon’s naievty is super sweet, it just makes it so obvious that she is very simple minded but still she tries really hard to portray that she knows everyyyything. But I must say the mention of ’24 hours mai khushkhabri’ got Zaitoon confused too because no matter how simple she is, even she knew things aren’t this quick when it comes to this matter!!

Sadly Abba Jee was heart broken today. What he said about Shafiq complaining about him to Asim was sad to hear. He only wanted to guide his grandson but he got a reality check that no one is under his control anymore. The way the generation gap has been shown is brilliant. Abba Jee only wanted to convey what he felt but had no idea that he will get blocked because no one had the patience to listen to & understand his concerns!

Hajra got a bit too excited, therefore she told everyone everything based on her own assumptions. Even Shaina seemed a little excited because she knew that Aqdas is a nice guy. I loved the way Rubina & Laila were teasing Shaina. It was so good to see all of them coming together & looking forward to Faseeha’s arrival because they all wanted to be a part of Hajra’s happiness.

Even though Faseeha did put forth Aqdas’s proposal for Zoya but it was too obvious that she wasn’t too keen on it as she was judging Zoya for her one & only son & she didn’t really meet her standards. Everyone was not only taken aback but were shocked to hear what Faseeha had to say as no one saw that coming!

I once again loved how Shaina reasoned with Hajra & tried to put things into perspective. It was so beautiful that Shaina curbed her feelings & told Hajra to be happy for Zoya. I am sure things won’t be too smooth & there will be a lot of obstacles in the way & oh yes, the biggest obstacle would be getting Aalu & Anila’s permission.

I loved this episode & had a great time watching it. Even though every episode might focus on a thing or two but there are so many moments which make every episode wholesome & complete, like I loved the bonding of Hajra, Rubina & Laila over the kitchen table where they discussed how Zaitoon should be approached & informed about Aqdas’s proposal. Rubina’s neverending taunts directed at Zahid are amusing too, but sadly he doesn’t pay heed to what his wife is trying to convey. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable episode but I am looking forward to the next one as I want to see Zoya’s reaction. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Aangan.
