Yeh Raha Dil Episode 22 – & He’s Back!

Ohkay so, even though the star of the show is back, yes I am talking about the DJ but I will get to him later because first I have a lot of praising to do. I remember one of the commenters said that every 3rd episode of Yeh Raha Dil happens to be amazing & I think this time around I’ll have to agree with that notion because after 2 below average episodes, this one was perfect in every sense. I couldn’t stop smiling throughout this episode because the subtle, situational comedy was a part of it & after boring 2 episodes, to hear such witty & amusing dialogues did make me feel that this episode in particular was written by Mustafa Afridi again. Also, even the scenes which were emotional were executed perfectly that I couldn’t help feel for the characters. This episode, like all the other episodes of Yeh Raha Dil (previous 2 excluded) had all the flavors, some comedy, some serious talks, some emotions & for that reason, I loved it!

I must say I thoroughly enjoyed all the conversations that took place in this episode. Hayat tried to get to the crux of the situation & wanted to understand what was happening between Affaq & Fatima. Even though by the end of the previous episode I was annoyed by Hayat & didn’t like her approach where she tried to talk to Fatima about her personal life but this time around, I liked that she didn’t mind getting slapped & also in stead of speaking to Fatima, she finally spoke to her father to know what was wrong.

Fatima & Affaq’s conversation was written brilliantly as well but what I enjoyed more was the fact that the director didn’t give away everything just yet. Also, for now the writer very intelligently shifted our focus on Fatima & Affaq’s issues & forced us to do some thinking & assume things as to who stands wrong in this relationship. As far as I could comprehend, Fatima has misconstrued something & she is adamant on the fact that Affaq has cheated on her & may be only to get back at him, she got involved with someone else too. The focus on how Affaq believes in staying quiet & not giving explanations was another fact that was highlighted intelligently, because it showed that this trait of Affaq is literally ruining his relationship & he is not going to change himself to make things work. The way Affaq spoke to Hayat went to show that he was hurt that Fatima mistrusted him & assumed that he could cheat on her & because of that, he allowed her to think on those lines without saying anything to prove her wrong.

I think it was quite interesting that both Fatima & Hayat didn’t hold any grudges against each other & in fact, Hayat tried to take this entire matter in her hands because she believes in herself & feels she can fix everything, which I by the way am interested to see. I think this is something that will change Nida’s attitude & perspective towards Hayat. I believe this entire aspect has been added by the writer to bring Nida to that point where she will start seeing Hayat’s niceness & will regret doubting her & her intentions, because no matter how selfish one gets, if someone fixes something so important like their parents’ relationship, nothing else matters anymore. I am sure when Nida will see Affaq & Fatima back together that too because of Hayat, she will realize her mistakes & will give up on the hatred that she has for Hayat too.

Another surprising factor was that it was Hayat who chose to console Fatima when she broke down & not only that, she decided to confront her father for her sake. Where Nida was only bothered about herself & her face saving, Hayat was being considerate about her step mother more. The way the difference between Nida & Hayat’s mentality & perspective was shown was brilliant where Nida thought her father hated Fatima & Hayat could see how much he loved her. Hayat has finally understood her father & she can see that he is hurt & that is why, now she’d do everything to make both Affaq & Fatima fall back in love with each other again, which I think is very sweet. Oh well Mr. Mike, you have no idea that Hayat is chasing after you & she will make sure to throw you out of Fatima’s life, so get ready for some fireworks!

At the moment, I am expecting more from Zaki, like I know he is subtly playing his game only to make Hayat realize her mistakes too but then, something more. It was good that Zaki & Hayat had an interaction in this episode & I guess it was more than enough, for now at least. I enjoyed the conversation that took place between Affaq & his friend/Hayat’s Principal as well, like they were two very good & old friends who were teasing each other & finding humor in their interaction, that entire scene was acted out nicely as well. So, Hassan finally met Affaq & even though Affaq seemed impressed, Hassan left a certain kind of impression on him too. I lol’ed at how even Affaq couldn’t believe that Hayat would choose someone like Hassan for himself but then Zaki distracted him immediately & told him that Hassan’s the one!

For the first time I didn’t mind Hassan’s presence in this episode because it was compensated with other important aspects & characters that I found it alright that he got some coverage. I enjoyed his & Jimmy’s interactions as well where Hassan wanted to make Hayat’s birthday ‘isspecial’ & Jimmy showed him the real picture as to how much that ‘isspecial’ birthday would cost him, lol! So, Hayat was sent to the venue that Hassan & Jimmy chose & I think Jimmy did a huge favor to Hassan & to us all by sending the best DJ in town to steal the show again. I couldn’t stop laughing at his antics & I liked the fact that the DJ had some dialogues this time around as well where he got a chance to explain how he’s a master of his trade & how he’d help Hassan with his proposal as well. I wish I could’ve enjoyed his dancing a bit more but the episode ended but I am most certainly looking forward to his ‘isspecial’ geet that he’ll sing during Hayat’s entry. I say Isspecial thanks so much Ehtashamuddin by making the viewers of Yeh Raha Dil laugh out loud. You once again stole the show!

Overall, I loved this episode of Yeh Raha Dil, like it just made me happy. If this keeps up, I don’t mind seeing a lot more episodes of this drama as well but I think they are now headed towards the ending but with the right approach. I can’t wait to see Hayat & Zaki’s confrontation too & also, Haroon is going to make an appearance so yes, I am actually quite excited for the next episode. Ehtashaamuddin of course & then Adnan Jaffar definitely stole the show in this episode. It is amusing how comfortable Jimmy gets with everyone around him, like Hassan was quite skeptical but Jimmy acted all friendly with him to let him know that he is rooting for him & Hayat as well. I love how Anum Goher & Ayesha Sana have commonality when it comes to overall styling & personality, like both Fatima & Nida are always well put together, blingy & well-dressed, like they scream mother daughter duo to me. For the first time I enjoyed others performances more than Yumna Zaidi’s but that doesn’t mean she didn’t do her bit well. Anyways, please share your thoughts about this episode of Yeh Raha Dil.

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!
