Kadurat Episode 12 – Negativity Rules!

After the controversial dhamaka last week, the Kadurat clan decided to take it slow this week around. This episode focused on showing how disturbed Mahmood was after the “incident”. I couldn’t help but think that it was a little too late for all that thinking, but then that is Mahmood for you! Atiqa could not help but notice how distracted and troubled her husband was. Mahmood’s explanation that it was due to business matters sounded quite odd since Atiqa is a big part of his business, so if there was an issue she would already know about it instead of hearing it from Mahmood and believing it too!

Now I have really started thinking, just like many other viewers I am sure, that don’t Mina and Shaheen have a life? I understand why Mina is doing all that she is doing but the writer and the director completely forgot to enlighten the viewers as to why Shaheen is always playing the puppet in Mina’s hands. I was hoping that there will be a part of the story that will at some point introduce the viewers to Shaheen’s character in a better way but that doesn’t seem to be happening. Except for the very short scene in the one of the first few episodes, the viewers never really got a chance to identify with Shaheen’s personality. The viewers know that Shaheen is very negative and destructive but why is she like that, one can only guess!

Asad’s interest in Asma yet again failed to make an impact. They make a very odd couple and Asad actually appears to be a little desperate rather than in love – although that is not the case. Asma, in her own way, finally says yes which means that Mina and Shaheen will have another “target” now.

I caught a glimpse of Darmiyan too today and it looks like Kadurat is not the only play which seems to be portraying all the wrong things but Darmiyan is pretty much going on the same track too. Don’t our heroines have a better way of seeking revenge than to destroy people’s marriages and their self respect in the process.

Kadurat could have proved to be a very educational play for all those young people who lose their way because of the loss of a loved one or even for those parents too who tend to make wrong decisions but never realize how wrong they were. But instead of that, the play seems to be all about young girls playing with the lives of people who are so close to them. There was a time when I used to feel for Mina but the way she has completely gone negative is really putting me off. The character had an innocent side to it once but it is not there anymore. The writer has taken everything to the extreme and that is never a good idea. 12 episodes have gone on air till now and I think that the story is only going to go around in circles from now on. There will be many misunderstandings, a few break ups and maybe some more dhamakas and the happy ending does not seem to be in sight.  What Mina has done is unforgivable and it is almost like there is no hope for her anymore. When Mina decided to fake her friendship with Asad, I was hoping that the two will get closer and Mina will find a brother in Asad but that track was taken to a completely different direction too. Sanam Saeed’s remarkable performance has definitely not been put to good use at all. I really hope that the next project that Sanam Saeed chooses is a masterpiece like Talkhiyan. Hum TV is a channel many viewers have faith in, they expect nothing but quality entertainment from the MD production house. It is my request to Hum TV to choose quality scripts even if such plays don’t have a star cast.

    I don’t totally agree. Mina’s character is justified. She is still alone. No doubt her way of revengge is wrong but she is doing it because she has nothing to do anything with anyone. Everyone’s busy in their life and no one has got time for her. She only tries to seek love and attention of her father. Shaheen is not playing puppet in Mina’s hands. She is making her own way towards the wealth of her father. She is using her and making her feel that she is doing everything for her. Yeah, whatever Mina has done, we should not expect a happy ending because she will have to face consequences and in my opinion she will lose her father as well and will be all alone at the end… Mina could have got closer to Asad but he kept her at a good distance so again we can’t blame her like that. What she said to him was a complete disappointment…

    This drama has introduced a somewhat new concept of revenge in dramas, and darmiyan is also based on revenge. While Geo Kahani has also started a turkish drama intikaam, which is turkish version of english series REVENGE.

    Concept of this drama was new and different, but story is going in circles, mina and shaheen carve out a plan, it fails then they think again, like cat and mouse play.

    Now they both are making some evil plan for Aleena and offcourse Atiqa is already under their guns. Mina has been more evil in her plans, as the dream man of Mina, the Psychiatrist has rejected her, so she has been more revenge driven by making a promise if she is not happy nobody has the right to be happy.

    Though Zoha hassan has written many dramas, I searched which was the most famous and it was Mehmoodabad ki malkayen on ARY, a long soap.

    I would say this drama is still different from most of over-romanticized dramas , a quality production, direction, background, sound recording, is upto mark most of the times. It has some loopholes but still we cannot predict its end.

      I agree the concept is unique, the production values are top notch and the leading actors are doing a commendable job too but I feel like it is an opportunity lost. This is not the only play by Hum in this season which has a star cast and great production values but a very unimpressive storyline. Khoya Khoya Chand and MKPYH fall in the same category too. RKAS is also very film. I would much rather watch a much more relatable and intelligently written play like Kankar any day of the week.

    fatima i alwaz read your views. i m agreed with you this is all going wrong. at the end all would 4give mina that would not b possible in real life. a daughter has destroyed her father’s life. this could not b happening…

    • FatimaAwan

      Saba thank you for following the reviews. Yes it doesn’t look like this family can have a happy ending because too much has gone wrong in only 12 episodes and I am sure like all other serials this too is a 20plus episodes serial.

  • fahad

    goo review.yes i agree with you this play had potential to be the best play but writer and director ruined it by bringing a stupid twist one after another.mein ne yeh bohat notice kiya hai filmon mein bhi aur dramon mein bhi ke jab bhi big aur popular star cast hoti hai to logon ki expectations bohat zaada barh jaati hai lekin baad mein woh bekaar sabit hotay hain aur doosra yeh bhi ke humare dramas mein yeh bhi hai ke negative characters hi dominate ker rahe hote hain second last episode tak aur last mein woh haar jaate hain aur aksar to un mein se jeet bhi jaate hain like malik shazman in mera saaein 2 which had the worst ending and i hope ke is mein yaa to meena sudhar jaye ya phir haar jaye if she won then it will be the worst ending but still sanam saeed is the best but next time she sign some good project.

    • FatimaAwan

      What a well thought out comment Fahad, totally agree with you on all accounts.

    Being in a profession where you don’t have time to watch tv I had been following kudu rat even being abroad for a couple of months.
    What I have felt is that ,this is not the type to be seen with the family esp. In the presence of young ones. What are we trying to teach.drama has taken a bad twist, not required.i am disappointed.nation is going through a period of hatred for everyone.why do ham has to add insult to injury.i have stopped following this.

    Always positivity do not teach us . Each person can never forget past ruin or has big heart . Most often tragedies or dramas characters have hamartia or tragic flaw which justify their end ; the mistales which led toward bad end . Aristotle defined that flaw and this drama is a tragedy not a comedy where integration towards society will make an end rather bad teach us some good. ” diamond cuts diamond ” , fits here and why you people undermine sanam .. sanam is daring gilr whio has burning flame inside .And in fact her life paths have made him rebel . So there is nothing bad to not be traditionalist or one is recusant .Sanam role towards his father point two things ; one he damn care about his father because he had taken away his childhood and all love which she deserved had hone inti the hands of steps one . This drama highlights loneliness is always bad and why parents made their children lonely . Once heat is ruined like a broken mirror , then all efforts to make it combine become futile .

    This drama has another technical issue where Asad is showing presentation how business is being flourished along with Atiqa who know pros and cons of business, how Mahmud can made a lame excuse , he is raptured by business matters. in facts he can tell he is worried about Minha . But actually his father never think Minha his first daughter , In previous episodes , when Atiqa told her husband about Dnaiyal , Mahmud thinks his only daughter has gone young ; Minha is listening all that . Mahmund care for her but never think of her like a daughter .Instead of getting intimated with her , he again hold her in the hand of psychiatrist; Minha want fatherly love so get involved in him . Mahmund never realized . Mahmud played with Minha and Minha played with all who are around him ; fatal end indeed . But character of sanam has flames and here some flamboyant girl is in dire need

    Some people of born sociopaths despite the well upbringing. Minah character completely portrays that. Shaheen is the advantage seeker, someone who like to use others shoulder to fire. However, again it is the parenting, and I believe that the father had to put down his foot before getting succumb to emotional blackmail by his daughter and now more than ever in the mess. Now is the time to take his wife and son in to confidence and come up with an action plan.

  • S Ahmad

    I go along with Fatima’s review. Have a question regarding the psychitrists role, he should have judged much earlier the negativity in MInhas mind and treated her accordingly so she would have reached this stage of vengeance. Also why did the writer who had explored such an important topic which is a highlight in our lives drifted it to something which until now does not seem to be pointing to anything good , it is a shame really. Totally disappointed. Sanam saeeds acting though remarkable, her eye movements and gestures totally depicting her mental state seem to be going to a waste. Plus these are family dramas which influence the minds of immature minds, so such scenes though subtlety shown should not be a part of the script, it was going overboard. It is not necessary that everything has to be a happy ending, life has ups and downs , one has to learn how to live with compromises without making life for oneself and others.
