Aunn Zara Episode 05 – CUTE!

What a fulfilling episode hit our screens last night. It is just getting better & better as the episodes are progressing. The story seems to get more stronger & I am loving the fact that every single time they have something new to reveal. Everything about this drama is nothing less than just awesome.

Apart from the humor, revelations to both Aunn & Zara about their pre-wedding feelings for one-another was superbly done. Those conversations were written so well that just in a flow it was expressed which gave them a new dimension as well as to the feelings they have for one another. I loved that at that very moment they were touched & ecstatic by the idea but whenever they came across each other they just had zero tolerance level. It was really cute to see them bickering continuously because that’s how they are going to understand each other well. It’s actually really enjoyable to see them taking each other so lightly & innocently that they are actually not understanding the needs they have to fulfill of each other, because they are too busy in their own agendas & this definitely makes it better.

I actually find it commendable that during the course of the comedy, the drama doesn’t miss a chance to give you those moments where you can say ‘aweeeeeeeeeeee’. The drama sheds a light on those never-ending emotions one feels normally as well. Zara’s father, who looks so stiff is actually finding it hard to accept the fact that she has left his home for good. Aun, who dreads his FIL’s presence could actually yearn for his hug seeing the emotional moment. It was sweet but what made it better was Aunn’s childish expression & his self-uttered thought that his FIL would actually ‘koochi koo’ him. LOL! That scene had me laugh so hard.

Another thing I love about this drama is that all the characters get to share the screen time as well. Even though the main focus is on Aunn & Zara but all the characters are not left out. They all share their moments & never fail to leave an impact. I must say I sympathized with Nighat &  how sad her divorce story was. :( lol. Chachi’s imagination rolled really quick in regards to Zara’s health & her ice-cream havoc was way too funny. But the best one in this episode for me was ‘Lanat Joga’, ‘Manhoos Mara’ & obviously the ‘2 Kilo Doodh’. I just can’t imagine how do they make things appear so funny to us which we actually experience in our personal lives too. Trust me if you’re a true Urdu/Punjabi lover, you have used these words a hundred times too. 

Seeing Manzar back was great. He did try to help Aunn once again as usual but this time his idea was a hit in stead of a miss. Aunn has actually started working on the new project Manzar has assigned to him & Zara on her own is working unknowingly in that direction too, whereas Manzar has set a new goal for himself & she is Zara’s friend. ;) Aunn wants to get away with all the attention & Zara, being the only girl in her family without a mother-figure just can’t tolerate how her husband gets pampered all the time. She is being innocently selfish but is for sure spreading lots of smiles there. Husna seems to enjoy the relation Aunn & Zara share because Zara has no stopping & she is ready to take things in her hands.

The cockroach thing was the funniest because I can relate to Aunn in that matter too. The moment a cockroach walks in, I am sure me & so many out there try to reach to the highest point in their rooms because it’s just so creepy. The ‘bewa cockroachni’ was something which I never thought of but from now on I sure am going to give it some consideration too before I become a cockroach ‘kaatil’ like Zara. Haha.

This episode seemed more calm & quiet because now that Aunn has returned everyone is at peace & they are done with Zaras’ father’s deal too. Daadi can see the ‘apple of her eye’ all day long & the added bonus for the whole family is proving to be Zara now. Nighat Pupho & Chachi are scheming something because they just can’t tolerate a few seconds of Aunn not being in the limelight. I am sure they are going to give Zara a tough time in getting smitten by her tactics. It for sure is such an experience which you just don’t want to enjoy alone. I always tag my family along & we watch it together because it’s just something I don’t want anyone to miss. I must say the star of today’s episode undoubtedly for me was Osman Khalid Butt as Aunn. I must admit he is really cute & has done a marvelous job in giving out those millions expressions each in micro-seconds. His eye popping, his gulp, his awe, his disgust, his anxiety, his frustration – every thing is just praise-worthy. WELL DONE OKB, YOU ROCK!

Applause once again to the whole team for giving us another brilliant episode. I must say I love the quick scenes hence the editor has his job well done & every time it ends I just feel it wasn’t enough. I just can’t wait for more. Bring it on ASAP please. :)

  • Wow what an episode and equally nice detailed review. Thanks.
    Love every thing about this drama. Can't pick one scene, OR one favourite dialoge…….there are two many of them.
    Waiting alredy for next instalment.

    • Thanks a lot for appreciating. Yeah, you're right, it's really difficult to point out anything bad about this drama. :)

  • Episode 5: Pleasant, refreshing and funny. Love both Aunn, Zara and their family members. No black sheep in the family yet. What a change!

  • Wonderful review, wonderful episode.
    You are spot on about OKB in this play. He is irreplaceable. No other actor couldve been Aunn. Those witty one liners stay with me long after the episode ends. Already waiting for next week.

    • Thanks a lot Mona. Good to hear from you again. Yeah, he's just perfect as Aun, can't wait to see more of him. :D

  • Hi Zehra brilliant review to another lovely episode. I'm truly enjoying both.
    I love the story, characters and all subtle nuances and undertones. Amongst all the laughter s love and warmth there is mild sadness and emptiness in Husna and to certain extent Chachi and Phuppo and yet these ladies are taking every thing in their stride.
    Aunn is so cute and Zara so innocent despite her trivial scheming. Episode was full of brilliant one liners. I love it.

    • Thank you so much Farah to adding so much more to the whole serial & the experience. Yes, there is some heavy-heartiness to Husna out there, which we will eventually come to know off. But for now whatever has been revealed to us seems really complete. Can't wait to find out more about each & every character because none of them is a lesser favorite. They all are dear to us. Keep adding more in the future too. :)

  • its a nice drama but some scenes were vulgar . mazak mazak main kuch buray scenes b dikha diye. its no more a family drama. there was no need of these cheap scenes. the drama had its charm without them

  • such a refreshing drama. My family n I love to watch it , as it not preachy, but sweet n funny. indeed a very good job by the writer , director , n the whole cast. everyone is acting great. thank u A plus for bringing something fresh to our tv screens.

  • nicely reviewed..
    i watched episode 4 and 5 at one go and thoroughly enjoyed them…
    though sometimes its exaggerated but you can get away with it when you're attempting comedy..
    the cockroach scene was OTT i feel, but that cockroach ki bewah thing made me LOL..
    and as you have pointed out Lanat Joga and Manhoos Maara dialogues really made me laugh hard too.. the Dadi surely is a pleasure to watch.. and the writer must be credited for these dialogues too..
    the only complaint that i had in episode 4 were some sex implied jokes regarding Aun Zara nuptial night… they were not required imo especially when you're doing exceptionally well without these vulgar jokes.
    you've praised OKB in your post and i complete agree with that.. he is doing a good job, but i really Maya Ali need to be praised equally.. she surely is a talented girl and a good addition in our tv industry.. i havent seen ek nayee cindrella but she has impressed me alot in this serial.. her expressions are just too good..

    • Thanks a lot for your detailed feedback. Yeah, they're a treat to watch & you just want to see more of it when it ends. I must say that I have praised her a lot too, she has portrayed the character of Zara perfectly & just like OKB for me is Aun, similarly no other girl could've been fit as Zara for me too. I did praise her but in this episode, Aun took the lead for me. Rest, your opinion is most welcomed. :)

      I must say I have to agree with your say about some of the scenes. Even at their 'adjusting-to-sleeping-habits' scene I was like euuuuu at that foot thingy as well because I must say those scenes aren't needed as the show still is a hit. I hope we don't get to see more of such awkward scenes.

      • agreed that Aun took the lead in this episode… his expressions were hilarious in the scene where Zara's father hugs Zara and Aun to wanted zabardasti ka hug.. :D
        and as for awkward scenes… you dont expect such things from pakistani dramas.. so when such a scene comes it becomes really embarrassing when you're watching it with family..

        • Yeah, I agree but now we've come to such a point in our dramas or in our media on a larger scale that we should be mentally prepared to expect anything, just ANYTHING!
          Gone are the days when censor board ruled in Pakistan. *sigh*
