Pakistan Idol Week 10 – Gala Round 01!

So finally Gala round is here & the real competition has begun. I would’ve liked it a bit more if it didn’t start off with the performance that we saw. I wish being the actual singers – only Ali Azmat

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 21!

To be honest, every week I dread tuning to this program because I know it’s just going to be a mind-teaser & surprise surprise I wasn’t proven wrong this week too. Nothing is making sense in the drama & no

Rubaru – Episode 06!

Ohkay so this episode focused more on Neelam & Taimoor’s love story, which made me wonder all this while that what was the force which dragged Taimoor to fall for an immature girl like Neelam? Yes, Neelam is a spoiled

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 20!

Unreasonable, unrealistic, unjustifiable & undue are some words to describe this story in a nutshell. Wow! You get divorced & then go as a guest to your ex-husband’s house. This is definitely something that I have never seen or heard

Ishq Mein Tere – Episode 10!

So, the episode was all about everyone’s reaction. Starting from Saad’s mother to Laiba, everyone had a fair share of reactions there which Shehryar & Aiza never expected. After this episode I thought it would’ve been better if Shehryar had disclosed

My Take on Inaam Ghar!

Rubaru – Episode 04!

It was a very very slow episode without much to offer. I think the cast is great & they are doing their work just fine but the director has yet to impress us with his direction. I don’t know why

Glad that after weeks of focusing on the miseries, there was something new happening in this episode. I must say that the only star of this episode was Mehwish Hayat & her acting. Only she single-handedly held the whole episode

Rubaru – Episode 03!

Ohkay so this was more like a filler episode without much going on but it did just focus on the immediate post wedding happenings. I think considering the suspicious & turbulent start of Shabbi’s married life, it was pretty justified
