Ek Nayi Cinderella Episode 5 – A Review

True love is not based on beauty or wealth. True love is when someone accepts both the good things and the bad things in the person he/she loves because nobody is perfect. If he/she seem perfect, then it’s not really true love. It’s not something beauty or wealth decides, it’s the heart, the kind of person your loved one is…Β This has always been my belief. And I still stand by it. Therefore, I refuse to believe that Meesha loves Mayer.It’s probably just a crush but can’t be true love. Today’s episode made me decide who’s team I’m on. Yup, I am totally on Roman’s team now! I think he was hurt when Meesha said that one needs to be handsome and wealthy to be loved. Right now, he’s not paying much attention to his feelings and just wants Meesha to be happy and make Mayer fall in love with Meesha. He really loves her. That’s called selfless love!

Today we also found out that Roman had always been watching over Meesha. I’m really wondering now if Roman is a fairy-man or not. He really hasn’t shown any ‘magic’ signs. But then how did he get the Cinderella dress, and how does he show up suddenly(like he did in front of Meher). I am confused. We will probably find out later. But I am enjoying his performance very much. Faizan Khawaja is playing his role very well. I think the role he is playing looks like fun. Roman and Meesha have something in common; both are adorably and purposely trying to bug the people they work for. I think it’s cute! But Roman is more clever. He is taking his steps carefully around Meher. I can’t help but think Meher is planning something regarding Roman. I wonder what she’s thinking.

Zaini has convinced Mayer that she is the girl he met on the night of the festival. He has now completely fallen for her. But can’t he tell the difference between the way the mystery-girl(Meesha) and Zaini talk and behave? I so wish he finds out. Come on Mayer! You have to realize it!

Overall, it was a slow episode but it was interesting. Everyone is doing an outstanding job and I am really liking the story. I believe the next few days at Bano’s will be very important for the story. There is a lot we don’t know yet so I am also looking forward to all the answers. There’s still a lot of the story left so anything can happen.

    I absolutely loved this episode. Each & every scene was interesting. ANC may not be a thought provoking drama, but it is a feel-good drama. It is so much fun to watch.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Yes, it's a breath of fresh air since most dramas are the 'rona dhona' type

  • Xadee

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Thanks πŸ™‚
      Yes, pata nahi Meesha ka reaction kya hoga, lekin ho sakta hai Romaan fairy-man ho, you never know ^_~

  • Shaista

    This is such a sweet & romantic show. It is so nice to see young, good looking people romancing on screen, instead of the usual Buddhas that we regularly see.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Lol they are doing and amazing job πŸ™‚ I agree, nice to see fresh faces.

  • Ayesha

    Thanks for the lovely review. We are watching Anc as a family and loving it. It is the best show on tv right now.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Pleasure πŸ™‚
      Yes, ANC and Tanhaiyan, I am really enjoyng these

  • Faia

    Best Drama……ANC has become the # 1 show on tv , according to Top Drama of the week list. Good job is done by entire team of Anc.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Mhm πŸ™‚ It's a great show

  • Sameera K

    Lovely review…..lovely epi. V enjoyable…..story is lovely, direction is perfect & acting is good.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Thanks πŸ™‚ And yes, everyone did an amazing job ^^

  • Rubina S

    I simply adore this play. The scenes between Meesha & Romaan were too cute. Mayer is very good looking as well. Although the girl playing Zaini is very pretty but I don't want Mayer to fall for her.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      I agree with your comment completely. We have similar feelings about this πŸ™‚

  • Yasmeen

    Such a sweet review to such a sweet play. I hope Romaan & Meesha eventually fall for each other. Love them.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Me too!I so want Roman and Meesha to be together

  • Saira S

    ANC is now on the Top of the list in ratings. I hope it stays there. I am totally team Mayer. He's soooooo handsome. I want Meesha & Mayer to be together. I think they will be because this is a Cinderella story & Cinderella has to get Prince Charming.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Well true that but I don't think Meesha really loves Mayer. Let's see πŸ™‚

  • Humera Khan

    Loooooove this drama. It has such a sweet, young, fresh feel to it. It's like a breeze of fresh air among all the heavy duty stuff.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Yes!I agree completely! πŸ™‚

  • Annie

    thanks for the review GQ πŸ™‚ It was a good filler episode. a bit on the slower side but I still enjoyed it. I am with you on team Rooman. Mayer is just a pretty face – all dolled up to look like Prince Charming. And Meesha def. has a crush on Mayer which is quite evident. I did like how she was so open with her Daadi and told her that she likes him. Nicely done!
    Hope things pick up from next week but then I am guessing this is a 20+ episode play – if it is then we might be in for some more slow episodes.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      My pleasure πŸ™‚ And yes I agree I felt it was slow too.Yes, Meesha doesn't truly love Mayer that's why I think Meesha and Romaan should be together. Well, OKB said it was 18 episodes or so.

  • Samia Gilani

    Thanks for the nice review. ANC is such a wonderful drama. It is become number 1 in the trp ratings.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      My pleasure πŸ™‚ Yes, it's because of the innocence and and the cuteness of the play πŸ˜‰

  • Nadia

    Hi GQ….nice review. I'm totally enjoying this serial. I'm most definitely Team Romaan. He is so good looking. Do u think he's related to Fahad Mustafa? Romaan surely looks like him.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Hi πŸ™‚ Thanks πŸ™‚ Yes, me too, team Romaan all the way now ^_^ OMG! I thought that too and my mother too cuz he looks like Fahad Sir and his expressions are very similar to his πŸ™‚ But I guess they are not. I checked and I don't think they are related. But I agree, Romaan(Faizan Khawaja) looks a lolt like Fahad Sir.

    This One Is Awesome Drama !! :p
    Love This So Much !
    Thank you Ghada Qaiser :p

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Lol my pleasure πŸ˜‰ The team has really done an awesome job!

  • Zahra Mirza

    Absolutely adorable review! I completely agree with you GQ. I am also in favor of Roman. Meesha is just for the time being infatuated with Mayer but may be later on she will come to understand that Roman loves her more than anyone else or may be they'll develop a perfectly interesting love triangle once Mayer will find out that Meesha was the girl he was looking for.

    • Ghada Qaiser

      Awww, thank you so much ^_^ Yes, I hope she does understand that Romaan is the right person for her. I really hope she falls in love with him. Hmm, true that. I'm excited to see what happens πŸ™‚

      • Zahra Mirza

        Me too. πŸ˜€

  • Khurram

    Romaan looks like a Kaam wala (servant)
