Sar-e-Rah Episode 1 Story Review – Perfection

Writer: Adeel Razzaq Director: Ahmed Bhatti Producer: Abdullah Seja Schedule: ARY Digital Every Saturday 8 pm After a really long time just when I had almost given up on Pakistani dramas altogether, the first episode of Sar-e-Rah reminded me of the reason why I started reviewing dramas in the first place! This first episode was pure genius. It had a soul that most dramas nowadays lack. Most importantly, this first episode was not just meaningful but also gripping right from the first scene till the last one. Even some of the actors who usually don’t deliver were at their best;…

Bakhtawar Last Episode Review

When drama serial Bakhtawar went on air, many of us compared it to Parizaad and wondered if Bakhtawar will also be another unforgettable drama such as Parizaad. The good news is that Bakhtawar was a memorable drama in its own right; it was a story of resilience and uncharted strength. The ending of both the drama was more or less the same. However, it did not have the same impact which Parizaad had on the viewers. I re-watched the last scene from Parizaad and I must say that it was on a completely different level altogether. The dialogues, cinematography, and…

Kuch Ankahi Episode 3 & 4 Review

Kuch Ankahi’s 3rd episode had to be my favorite so far. Samiya’s opening conversation with her father and Alia fixing her car on her own were two of my favorite scenes in that episode. The 4th episode was not as amazing as I was expecting it to be. Even after all these weeks, I do not feel a close connection with the characters and their journeys. Some of the characters are still a mystery. Sehrish and Azfar’s backgrounds in particular have not been revealed yet. Salman and his mother’s scenes are more or less the same in every episode. There…

Kuch Ankahi Episode 1 Review

Written by: Syed Mohammad Ahmed Directed by: Nadeem Baig Produced by: Six Sigma Plus & Kashf Foundation Schedule: Every Saturday 8 pm on ARY Digital Kashf Foundation has a remarkable history of producing dramas that are meaningful and engaging. Dil Na Umeed Tu Nahin was one of the best dramas we got to watch on Pakistani television lately therefore the biggest reason why I was looking forward to Kuch Ankahi was the fact that Kashf Foundation is among one of the producers. Bilal Abbas Khan and Sajal Aly’s perfect on-screen chemistry was another reason why I knew I had to…

Tich Button – Movie Review

After watching Maula Jatt, I felt the need to watch a light-hearted film in order to make me feel ‘good’. Maula Jatt was ‘iconic’ but the violence and the dark theme of the film were definitely not my cup of tea. I desperately wanted to watch something entertaining, definitely not dark, and most importantly original. Tich Button’s trailers on the big screen during Maula Jatt screening promised just that! Before watching the movie, Faiza Iftikhar’s script was one thing I was most excited about because she is known for her engaging stories and powerful dialogues that do not go overboard.…

Fraud Episode 7 & 8 Story Review – Rejection

Ohkay so, Fraud definitely keeps on getting better & the credit most certainly goes to the actors who have put their heart & soul into their performances. It won’t be wrong to say that the story of Fraud is predictable & as a viewer, I clearly know what is going to happen in the upcoming episodes, but the way it has been executed, directed & performed definitely makes it one such drama that I actually look forward to every week. I also feel, it was a wise move to air double episodes this week & I hope it continues this…

Mor Maharan Episode 7 – 8 Story Review

Mor Maharan continues to be an interesting drama even though the treatment given to the script fails to impress at times. Mor Maharan’s script and most of the performances continue to be its strengths. The overall setting of the drama is definitely another plus. Production values and editing have to be two of its weakest elements. So far, Rohi is the star of the show. She is the most progressive female lead we have seen in recent times. That could also be the reason why one of the leading channels refused to invest their money in the drama! Right now,…

Fraud Episode 6 Story Review – Finest Performances

Ohkay so, hands down this episode belonged to Saba Qamar. Although the scene in which she outdid herself was already shown in the preview last week but seeing the entire build up & then the entire sequence was spellbinding. All this while I couldn’t stop thinking that Saba Qamar is one of those actors who never ever stop reinventing themselves. She has given one memorable performance after another & always succeeds in leaving a long lasting mark but to see this level of performance was not only a treat but actually made me proud of her. Saba Qamar once again…

Dobara Last Episode – Story Review

The ending of any drama reflects the kind of message that the writer wanted to convey through the story. Dobara’s “happy ending” was extremely unexpected and perhaps not too convincing either since most of us are not as kind-hearted as Mehru 😉 Yes, I had a difficult time forgiving Mahir and was not sure if he really deserved a woman such as Mehru. But there was definitely a hidden meaning there which I believe holds true even for such situations and people such as Mahir. While watching this ending, a part of me felt “cheated” especially because Mahir’s redemption was…

Fraud Episode 5 Story Review – The Betrayal

Ohkay so, it was definitely an emotionally charged episode of Fraud. I will definitely commend the entire team of Fraud for giving this drama a solid start but going by the pattern that usually Pakistani dramas have been following over the last few years, it is quite likely that things will now start slowing down. This episode was all about facing the consequences of blindly trusting others without doing much of a research. I also really liked the conversations that happened between the characters, there was a lot to absorb while also feeling sad for what Maya especially was going…
