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…

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…

Dobara Episode 32 Story Review – Fall From Grace

The second last episode we had all been waiting for finally aired tonight. Jahangir, Mahir’s father, was definitely the star of the show in this episode. Mahir has fallen from grace, which is actually unfortunate because he was such a likable grey character. Hadiqa Kiyani translated the subtle changes in Mehru’s attitude superbly on screen. The way Mehru reacted to the information Babar had to share was quite contrary to my expectations but also in line with her character. However, this episode was not as happening and powerful as I was expecting it to be. The dialogues were well written…

Dobara Episode 31 Story Review – Falling For Narmeen

I am certain I am not the only one who wants to give up on Mahir after watching this episode! I am no longer rooting for him and would love to see him pay for it if he decides to marry Narmeen. Even though Mahir started showing interest in Narmeen in the previous episode but tonight there wasn’t just a formal declaration of love but also a lot of talk about marriage. My blood boiled every time Mahir referred to Mehru as someone who meant nothing to him. While it was plain to see why Mahir would find Narmeen more…

Dobara Episode 30 Story Review – Engaging and Intriguing

Tonight’s episode of Dobara was engaging and intriguing. After a long time, Mahir and Mehru’s on-screen chemistry and their relationship took center stage even though Mahir showed more ‘interest’ in Narmeen than anticipated. The attention to detail in this particular episode stood out for me more than anything else. For this reason, this was the most well-executed and directed episode of Dobara. From the chai scene in the kitchen to the reasons for the delay of the flight; every single scene resonated with me. The story moved forward effortlessly and the performances were on point. Even though Dobara did drag…

Dobara Episode 29 Story Review – Narmeen Is Back

This was yet another episode of Dobara that belonged to Mahir. Bilal Abbas Khan’s performance tonight was more impressive than ever. Mahir is such a well-written and beautifully portrayed character. The last scene was one of the most powerful scenes we have seen in recent dramas. The director and the actors involved did complete justice to it. Narmeen’s entry has breathed new life into the story. Honestly speaking, I was not looking forward to this part of the story but this scene and the situations leading up to it, made it an absolute delight to watch. This episode also had…

Dobara Episode 28 Story Review – Meaningful Conversations

Tonight’s episode of Dobara yet again focused on Mehru and Mahir more than any other character. This recent episode had some interesting conversations to its credit. Mahir continues to be the main attraction; the character has been penned down brilliantly and Bilal Abbas Khan continues to translate the character phenomenally on screen. Mehru has some really strong personality traits which are likable but her story has definitely been taken over by Mahir, she no longer controls what happens in her life and her reactions most often are also dependent on Mahir’s support. Mahir’s marriage to Mehru brought him the stability…

Parizaad Last Episode Story Review – A New Beginning

Zindagi mohabbat ke bina kaati ja sakti hei maqsad ke bina nahin…Parizaad’s amazing journey finally came to an end tonight and it would be safe to say that Tuesday night will not be the same again! This was the only drama I found myself looking forward to every week because it was not just a wholesome journey of an unusual protagonist but it always gave me so much to write about in the reviews. The meaningful dialogues and scenarios made even the most unbelievable and unexpected situations worthwhile. Ahmed Ali Akbar remained the star of the show right till the…

Ishq-e-Laa Episode 12 Story Review – Tragedy

With this episode, Shanaya’s journey came to a tragic end and Azlan’s actual journey has just started. This episode was penned down well but some of the performances and execution of a few of the scenes were not up to the mark. Shanaya’s exit from the drama was somewhat predictable right from the beginning since there was always a great deal of focus on the dangers involved in her line of work. Azaan Sami Khan performed well in the post-marriage episodes but tonight he failed to add the kind of intensity that would have made Shanaya’s death as impactful as…

Parizaad Episode 26 Story Review – Unfulfilled Desires

Parizaad continues to be an entertaining drama that keeps on taking the most unimaginable twists and turns! Or at least the writer has more than once shown scenarios that break the monotony and keep the viewers on the edge! Right from the beginning, there have been quite a few instances when I found myself questioning Parizaad’s intentions and future plans. So far, Parizaad’s humane and sensitive side definitely takes over whenever certain situations suggest that he might do something extreme to fulfill his heart’s desire. Ahmed Ali Akbar yet again performed exceptionally well in this latest episode especially when Sharjeel…
