Dushman e Jaan
Dushman e Jaan is a murder mystery. A story of a head-strong Ramsha & a perplexed Hatim, who comes from a dysfunctional family & sees it affecting his personality, his dealings with others & most importantly, causing him trust issues on a daily basis. Hatim finds himself always questioning others & also disrespecting women is a big part of his personality because he has not seen it happening in his household. Ramsha; the only bread-winner of the family ends up accepting the deal proposed by Hatim’s mother to treat his complexes & make him a better man, which ends up costing her, her life.
Ramsha’s younger sister Rubab is now planning to get her sister the justice she deserves. There’s only one witness to the uneventful last moments of Ramsha before her death, which will lead him & Ramsha’s family to Hatim. Mohib Mirza has given the best performance of his career to date. Tooba Siddique was a breath of fresh air as Ramsha. Madiha Imam is now going to come to the forefront & carry the drama on her shoulders. Dushman e Jaan, a well-written script of Sarwat Nazeer is simple with its fair share of twists & turns. It has been directly skillfully which makes it a fine watch.

Great waiting for it so eagerly. Glad you made up mind to review it
Thank you Waqar. Yes, it is very interesting & probably the one drama from the new ones that deserves to be reviewed. :)
Hi Zahra, r u gonna review Zebaish?
Hi Sara. I watched the first episode of Zebaish & it didn’t work for me. Maybe as a viewer I need time to warm up to the characters because in the first episode, they seemed too caricaturish. For now, I will be reviewing Kashf & Dushman e Jaan. :)
So glad!! I didn’t know Tooba can act this good! Mohib Really is brilliant. Though in a small role, I was glad to see Sophia Mirza back on screen. The only thing I don’t like in this drama is the guy playing Ramsha’s fiance’s lipstick :p
The OST is sooo beautiful!! And the scene where the sead body arrives and they all come running was sooooo brilliantly directed! Slow mo, perfect emotions and brilliantly used OST.
PS: How will you be reviewing it? 4 episodes together per week?
Wow that was one of my favourite parts too !!!
Thank you so much PP for showing excitement. :) Yes, that scene was iconic, especially the way it was shot. It was brilliant.
I am also happy to see some of the famous actors from the past who used to be regularly seen in dramas in Dushman e Jaan. Like the girl playing the role of Hatim’s friend as well as Ruskhsana. Tooba Siddique’s acting as well as Ramsha’s character was what drew my attention to this drama. So sad Ramsha died. :(
I will be doing a combined review of 4 episodes every Thursday. :)
This drama is the best drama to air on 9 pm slot till now. It’s a shame how it didn’t get as many views as that overrated Mera Dil Mera Dushman. Btw Zahra, have you watched Zebaish? Will you review it?
Hi Abdullah. Yes, I watched Zebaish & decided not to review it. It didn’t really impress me much, may be it will get interesting as the story will progress.
I think Dushman e Jaan has made quite a buzz & is being watched widely. I am sure the channel will recognize it too now, the same way they did with Mera Dil Mera Dushman after its ratings went high.
Yay!!!! You have decided to review this. I seriously cannot believe we will get your insight in this drama.
I do not think you will be disappointed I hope. Though we are all wondering so much has happened what more is there to happen !!!
I remember requesting you to review Gustakh Ishq many years ago when I first came to pakistani dramas and that I really was very much into.
Look forward to engaging with you on this more.
I have such a big smile on my face right now !!!!!!
When will you review it?
On the Thursday or Friday 🤗🥰👌
Aw thank you so much Naeema for being so supportive & enthusiastic. 🥰 Yes, I am excited to review Dushman e Jaan too. Aw I remember getting the request but I was not watching that drama at that time.
I will be doing a combined review of 4 episodes every Thursday. :D
Thank you so much Zahra I wanted you to review this drama it is going strong its great to see Mohib playing a rich character most of the time I see him in dramas his character is poor or middle class. Will you review this drama four times a week or will there be an overview on thursday or friday? I’m already enjoying this drama and now your reviews will be cherry on the top
Thank you Sami. Mohib has given a very strong performance in Dushman e Jaa. I will be posting a combined review of 4 episodes every Thursday. :)
Thank you so much zahra mam for review it
You’re most welcome Ayaz. Thank you so much for reading the reviews & commenting actively. :)
Eeeeee… Thanks God you chose to review Dushman e Jaan. I am just loving this drama right now and so glad you are gonna review it. *Beaming all over my face*
Aw thank you so much Ayesha. Seeing the response of all you lovely readers makes me so happy too. :) I can’t wait for the discussions to begin. 🤩
Another ordinary drama with recycled script being reviewed by Zahra Mirza. She will praise it for 15 weeks then she will make fun of it. Yawn yawn. Then she will delete comments of those who criticize her for her typical behaviour. Everything she reviews is different and best first, after few weeks it is the worst drama on earth.
I think as one watches ones viewpoints also changes. No harm in that . If something is found to be not to ones liking then obviously one would say. If you praise something it doesn’t mean to say you cannot fault init either. Everyone’s got different viewpoints and i think it’s up for discussion because not everyone sees it the same way. That’s what a review is from 1 persons point of view!
Isn’t everyone’s life a bit recycled too. I dont like negative comments like this so had to say something. If nothing good to say dont comment.
You said it girl. Her viewpoints change like the weather in London. I have noticed that she gets easily influenced by twitter trends and what is popular. Say whatever you want to, I am with you.
Then let Zahra also say whatever she wants to. FGS, Dushman e Jaan isn’t even gathering many views on YT or even TRPs, twitter trends to alehda baat hai. She is reviewing it because so many people asked her to.
Sid, I have been reviewing dramas since the time twitter trending ralated to Pakistani dramas was not even a thing. I know you will choose not to believe, but I never ever follow any news/trends related to dramas that I am reviewing. I don’t even watch the upcoming promos of the dramas that I am about to review. This is something that all the regular readers of Reviewit have known about me. Thanks.
Well, I think everyone is entitled to their opinion! You should respect others’ opinion too, if you want yours to be respected. Its a good idea to not be judgmental, be reasonable and read a review keeping in mind ‘to each his own’. Peace out!!
Look another troll here bashing people on their opinions. Yawn Yawn. Almost every other drama on Pakistani Tv now-a-days starts on such a good note and then starts getting dragged by the makers. That is why not just her, but many people here also think ‘it is different and best first, but after few weeks it is the worst drama on earth.’ You all need to learn about ‘difference of opinion’ and ‘constructive criticism’ lekin nai Tum logon ney bas troll hi karna hai sab ko. I. I have been a reader of this site for almost 7 years now and I have had disagreements, but she has never deleted any of my comments. I am so glad that she just deletes this kinda comments. Better to remove the negativity. Itna masla hai reviews sey to naa parha karen, aur agar aapko drama ordinary lag raha hai to naa dekhen, koi majboor kar raha hai aapko? And FYI, she also reviewed Alif and she praised ‘every’ episode.
Not that I want to engage in this negativity anymore PP but now that you have elaborated, I will also add that all those who say I praise initial episodes then criticize the rest, I will encourage them to read the reviews of Khaas which aired last year. The intial episodes got criticized but as the story picked up, it was appreciated & praised in the remaining reviews.
Thank you PP for being a consistent reader & most importantly, knowing the difference between constructive criticism & purely personal attacks. If someone likes/dislikes a drama & has a different opinion, I fail to understand why don’t they share what they are feeling about it in stead of making it all about what I am saying & why I am saying so.
I am sure you are well aware of the pattern most of the Pakistani dramas follow where the initial episodes are always executed well but then everything starts to deteriorate, that is when the drama gets criticised. How about you see it from this perspective & figure that good episodes get good reviews, bad episodes get bad reviews.
Yar i wish u were also reviewing dilruba :( chalo koi nahi. Dushmane jaan bhi dekh lete hain reviews ki khatir :) dekhi thin 1-2 episodes but ye soap serials airing 4 times per week tend to get dragged nearing their end which is what i was afraid of. Liked it though specially hatims character. Rabab was a plain character.
Thank you so much LG. :) Yes, usually aisa hi hota hai but let’s see if this exceeds our expectations. Rubab’s character I think will evolve now when it will come to the forefront. Hatim ka kafi interesting character hai.
You know I started watching Dilruba but after 2 episodes, every time I tuned to it, I got busy with something else that I couldn’t follow. Aisay karte karte uski itni episodes nikal gain & couldn’t catch up. :D
You’re welcome. :) . Chalen acha hi kiya.. just watched its latest episode. The drama is losing its appeal now :/
Oho, just like it happens with most of the dramas. :/
I’m a viewer of this site for 6 to 7 years now and i will tell you a story. I’m a big fan of Khalil ur Rehman Qamar since 2010 when i watched his dramas. Zahra was reviewing his drama Zara yaad kar. I remember she used to criticize it from the get go because it wasn’t engaging which was true but being a die hard fan, i was getting angry. Every week I would disagree with her and in those arguments i got angry one time and said her some mean things ( not abuses) but never for once she blocked me or deleted my comment. I said sorry to her and at the end of the day she was right about the drama. It was train wreck. I have seen her take criticism many times. If she deletes comments then this would have been deleted too. Fatima and zahra are great reviewers. If i am confused about a drama, i always go with their recommendations.
Thank you so much Ahsan. Yes, I remember our disagreements on Zara Yaad Kar. I also appreciated how you always picked up some of the best dialogues & explained them in your comments. You never got blocked because your comments were always related to the drama. Just like you never judged me for not liking Zara Yaad Kar, I never judged you for liking it. It is sad that the drama you had such hopes in ended on such a bad note. I wish those readers who have an issue with me come forth & in stead of making it purely about me, share what they feel about the drama.
You are right Ahsan. I used to watch dramas on dramasonline then Fatima started reviewing there and writing articles. She got so much criticism but she was always so patient and graceful. That is what led me to be reviewit’s most avid reader. I read Zahra’s review and sometimes she gets in arguments but people are unreasonable at times. It is better to delete such comments.

i was so glad to see this on tonight’s list
