Be Inteha Episodes 1-21 Review – No Baddies Yet!

So I sat on this drama like a mother hen does on her eggs. Waiting for it to hatch (read end) because with the never failing Midas touch that I seem to have with every drama I review derailing off

Tumhare Hain Episodes 15-26 Review – The End!

So you know when you were a little child and would sometimes go through your things and pick up something which was nice but not toooo nice, something you like but not enough to not want to part with and

Matches Made In Heaven – Or Hell?

So, the idea of this article came to me quite literally while I was cooking. Yes, a huge part of my life does revolve around cooking but I was standing at the stove and chopping and wondering what do I

Ek Baar Dekho Hazaar Baar Dekho…!

It is indeed a sad point in my life, or in the lives of dramaholics like myself, when I have to ration out my drama watching to an episode a day because if I were to watch both episodes of

Sun Yaara Episodes 23 & 24 Review – Revelations!

While watching these two episodes, I was reminded of this nursery rhyme/song the kids used to listen to when they were small. The one about five little monkeys jumping on the bed, then there are four, three, etc (those were

Sun Yaara Episodes 1-22 Overview – One word: Wah!

Sigh. Dair aaye par durust aye. Sums up my sentiments in a nutshell about having delayed watching this drama earlier. A Six Sigma Plus production, directed by Danish Nawaz and written by Asiya Mirza, Sun Yaara has been on air

Tumhare Hain Episodes 1-14 Overview – Keeping It Real

So I figured enough of the ‘mean’ articles and reviews. Especially since the day I posted my last article Ghardari 101 and my washing machine died on me that evening I could not help wonder (while I wallowed in self

Faltu Larki Episodes 27 & 28 Review- The End!

Well, cat’s got my tongue. Or had. And took it for a long walk. Which was just as well for when I finished watching the last episode, I needed to sit still and mute for some time while my thoughts

Ghardari 101 – As Learnt from Pakistani Dramas

With two children under two, I have had my fair share of crazy moments during their earlier years where I have struggled to get food cooked, kids tended to and managed to live to see the next day. I would

Faltu Larki Episodes 23-26 Review – Meltdowns & Showdowns!

Oh my! As if the lives of all these characters were not happening enough, these past four episodes unleashed further mayhem. Yes, I know the haveli characters are quite absurd but I like how each track in general is dealt

RIP Fresh Ideas!

A while ago, I wrote an article about common scenarios/clichés being played to death in most dramas. Recently, I totally went off Pakistani dramas. Save one or two, I stopped watching them. The same old stories, negative characters, scenarios, etc

Tere Bina – Bucketful of Cliches!

I am a bit odd. Well, to rephrase that – my choices in dramas can be a bit odd. There may be dramas on air that everyone is raving about but for some reason I do not watch even one

Faltu Larki Overview – Not A Faltu Drama!

So you know how you introduce solids to a baby. Baby rice, the most favorable first food – almost always an instant hit. Add in apple, pear -all good. Repeat – all good. Then introduce a few new flavors -sweet

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 28 & 29 Review

So my best friend rarely watches dramas. Yes, I know – we made our peace with that, haha. But with her mother in law visiting nowadays and the TV tuned into dramas more often, she mentioned how she was watching

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 18 Review

Ah, I had expected quite a bleak episode with Ameena moping endlessly at her mother’s house and Urwah basking in Saiqa’s attentions and impending arrival of Azra but thankfully it was not just all that. While Urwah does take Ameena

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 26 & 27 Review – Maanoos or Kharoos Mohsin?!

Well, I really enjoyed watching these two episodes. Mohsin’s attitude – not as much! Probably being the oldest in the house has made him the way he is where he thinks he has the final say and the most authority.

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 17 Review – Team Ameena!

So while I enjoyed watching this episode, I am not too thrilled at the note it ended on. Urwah showed that he does have a compassionate side, actually let me rephrase that, for as Sohail rightly points out Urwah has

Noor e Zindagi Review – The End!

When a couple of episodes ago, Saleem seemed to come to his senses I wondered why the next episode was not the last one – until I watched it and realized he had not truly come to his senses. He

Choti Si Zindagi Episodes 14-16 Review – Shehr Ki Hawa!

My heart aches for Ameena. She has had quite a bit of growing up to do and to be very fair, she has taken it all in her stride. To see Urwah and Saiqa not let any opportunity slip by

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 20-25 Review- (Un) Happily Married!

There is something about this drama – the treatment it has been given, the portrayal of people and characters whose stories actually seem relatable and yes the acting that keeps my interest engaged all the while the episode is playing.

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 13 Review – Na Mehram Pulao!

Ghaaliban aap jaantay sub hain magar anjaan bantay hain – spot on, Sohail! Sohail is turning out to have more of a personality than just the class clown. I started liking him more when he helped Urwah get a job

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 18 & 19 Review – Emotions Running High!

I should keep a log. Or Mohsin should get a hobby. A new hobby that is. For now, he seems to have not much else to do but find new adjectives for Aina – none of them flattering. Along with

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 16 & 17 Review – What Fun…Not!

Manhoos, bechari, ayah, goongi – and now besharam. You name it and Aina is it! With the death of Nadia and seeing Mohsin crumble (quite literally I have to add), Faraz quits his job and decides to stay on in

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 12 Review – Till We Meet Again!

Hmm, what can I say? While this episode started off on a positive and warm note, Azra’s tantrum and then the events that followed threw me off a bit. Also the introduction of the new neighbour who has her sights

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 14 & 15 Review – Some Births…. And a Death!

The questions! I watched one of these episodes with the kids around and the baby crying caught their attention and forget Sajal worrying about society’s questions, my kids had loads – why is the baby crying? Why is the mama

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 11 Review – Muqabala Hai Pyaar Ka, O Urwah!

Oh my! I enjoyed this episode and was surprised when it ended for I lost track of time. With gentle advice and guidance from both sets of parents and with personalities that are basically ‘normal’ and good at heart, Urwah

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 12 & 13 Review – A Taukri Full Of Cliches!

So I had been praising this drama from being free from cliché situations or scenes and while for the most part it continues to be entertaining these two episodes had their fair share of typical dialogues and situations which moved

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 10 Review – Entertaining!

When I review a drama, I watch the episode then get up and do a few things while I gather my thoughts – how I felt about the episode, anything in particular that caught my attention and then when I

Noor E Zindagi Episodes 21 & 22 Review – Opposites Attract?

Exhausted – that is how I feel when I see Noor and Saleem together now. I actually feel bad for both of them for they are sooo different and while we have all heard of opposites attracting (something I never

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 9 Review – The Summer Break!

So, here’s what I think. If you are the sort of person who watches only the odd few dramas a week that have to be truly amazing – then probably Choti Si Zindagi is not for you. But for someone

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 10 & 11 Review – Ek Buzdil, 2 Junoonis!

Well. Pretty happening two episodes these were. A death, a wedding, a divorce and a failed suicide attempt! While most of the events and emotions running in these episodes were realistically presented, a few seemed a bit far fetched but

Kuch Na Kaho Episodes 8 & 9 Review – Manhoos Aina!

The pace of these two episodes continued to not disappoint. I found myself interested to see where the story is going for although we do have a fair idea of what will happen I am glad to say that at

Choti Si Zindagi Episode 8 Review – Shaadi Kay Baad!

After having binge watched seven episodes, this one was obviously a bit slow for me but I am not complaining for it focused on the events unfolding in Urwah and Ameena’s lives after the wedding, but sadly not together. While

Laaj Last Episode Review – Meray Sabar Ki Laaj!

I am not sure whether I take more breaks on the rare occasions that I work out or I did during this episode! I tried to get into it with all the ‘exciting’ events happening but kept finding myself pressing

Noor E Zindagi Episode 20 Review – Khawar’s Revenge

So, either it is because when you watch a drama without any strings attached you feel differently and when you sit and watch each scene and listen to each dialogue as a reviewer it is a different story – or,

Teri Chah Mein Last Episode Review – Khatam Shud!

I’ll be honest. I was looking forward to watching how the last episode plays out. While a small part of me tried to be prepared for a cliché and predictable ending where all is forgiven and everyone lives happily ever
