Pakistan Idol Week 07 – Piano Round 02!

Ohkay, that was another interesting lot of a piano round that performed today. I am quite surprised that those who were lost somewhere in the auditions & the theater round came out with a bang & performed extremely well. I

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 18!

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

Pakistan Idol Week 6 – Piano Round 01!

So, I am totally impressed by the beginning of a Piano round. I like how they have divided the groups for singing & fetching the votes because people can easily remember who to vote for if people are less. So,

Token of advice for watching Kabhi Kabhi: Keep your friends close & Whatsapp closer. Yeah, this is exactly how I got through this & a few previous episodes of this drama. I am glad Rehbar went against his father in

Rubaru – Episode 02!

Another week of a decent episode. I am sure it will get a lot more interesting than it may seem for now because Surmed is for sure some unusual character what we haven’t seen in a while. I am glad

Ishq Mein Tere – Episode 07!

So this week the focal point was Shehryar Hamdani’s marriage. I am surprised that how a simple story can be executed so nicely. Every character is etched out perfectly & even the one who is in the negative limelight is

Mujhe Khuda Pe Yakeen Hai – Torture Khatammm! :)

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 16!

Oh boy! 40 minutes of torture & sadly when I started watching, I knew what I was getting into. I think the writer by mistake kept the name of the drama as Kabhi Kabhi rather it should’ve been Chalte Chalte

Rubaru – Episode 01!

Well, this drama had a pretty decent start. Till now the theme looks different so I am hoping that we have found something interesting to watch on Thursdays. Surmed (Faizan Khuwaja) & Tipu (Tipu Sharif) happen to be friends who

Women – The Ultimate Negative Topic of Dramas!

Spare me if I cross the limits in my fury while targeting the writers because I am fed up with the trend of how the females are being portrayed in a negative light in all our dramas. I really actually

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 15!

I don’t know why the simple black & white conversations & situations in Samira Fazal’s dramas are turned & twisted into grey, not once, not twice but always. Bari Apa, Silvatein & now Kabhi Kabhi. I mean I understand to

Ishq Mein Tere – Episode 05

Another week with a great episode. It’s actually interesting to see how smoothly things are unfolding in this drama. I think we have seen so many unrealistically real dramas in this whole year that to see something this simple is

Mujhe Khuda Pe Yakeen Hai – Torture # Bees!

Oh boy! Are we having this conversation over those repetitive conversations again? Phew. I think the best name for this serial would’ve been ‘Chand Aurtain, Ghatiya Kahaniyaan’. I was searching for the purpose of this drama but gladly in the

Pakistan Idol – Week 3!

So, this week the judges covered Peshawar, Sukkhur & Islamabad. I liked the Islamabad auditions more but it was a bit of a disappointment to know that no one from Sukkhur made to the next round except ONE. Even the

Numm – Last Episode!

The emotional expressions I saw emerging on my face while watching the last episode: Ummm yes you guessed it right – NONE! Nothing, absolutely nothing in this whole episode was good enough to move you & no factors contributed at

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 14!

Good that the story is moving forward but not happy about where it is going. It may get rational but what I don’t understand is a bunch of manipulative skanks shown in this drama, I mean is it really necessary

Ishq Mein Tere – Episode 04!

Ohkay even though we know where this drama is going, it is still enough of an entertainment for the prime time. I am enjoying this drama even though they have offered nothing new in respect to the story but it’s

Mujhe Khuda Pe Yakeen Hai – Torture Number Unnees!

So before switching on the typical tone & mean mode of mine I must say that all the comments & remarks I make about this drama DOES NOT intend to show any disrespect towards the actors (except Mikaal), I truly

Pakistan Idol – Review: Week 2!

I must admit that I found this week of Pakistan Idol a bit better than the onsetting one. I know a few bits & bobs were still there which pulled the show from stirring the WOW factor but I am

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 13.

Finally & I don’t know after how many episodes this weeks’ episode seemed fine to me. I didn’t have tough time watching it like I had in a previous few episodes, may be because this week there was a lot

Ishq Main Tere – Episode 03.

So we’re 3 episodes down & surprisingly I am not disappointed. The pace is perfect & everything seems to be in it’s right place. I like how the story is progressing properly without any unnecessary emphasis on the situations. Aiza

First of all A SHOUT OUT to me & all the other viewers who survived through 18 episodes of this hideous drama. Masha Allah ME & YOU guys are awesome! ;) I was actually wondering & wanted to figure out

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 12.

I honestly think that Samira Fazal should take a break or may be it’s going to be better if I don’t fall prey to the amazing cast that is hired to make hideous stories look good. Silvatein being one of

Pakistan Idol – First Impression!

Ohkay, so the most raved about, the most anticipated show of 2013 Pakistan Idol began & no doubt where at times it looked like a decent attempt, it fell flat as well. I really don’t understand why do Pakistanis have

Mujhe Khuda Pe Yakeen Hai – Episode 17.

Statutory Warning: This episode was solely for those viewers who had missed Episode 07 of this drama serial, therefore, it only had the flashbacks along with certain insensible details which may force you to smote yourself, so aggar appne appko

Numm – Episode 15.

Just when Fatima asked me to cover for her, I knew what I was getting into. I knew I’d be seeing some meaningless details & I decided not to ignore them. The episode was good in a few bits &

Kabhi Kabhi – Episode 11.

Episode 11, half way through the drama but still wondering about the simplest details. This was another one of those filler episodes where things were prolonged unnecessarily, but in the meantime the purpose of the drama is being defeated or

Ishq Mai Tere – Episode 01.

Hmmm, so the drama has started off pretty well. Mostly the plays directed by Fahim Burney have a bit over-the-top & larger-than-life feel to them but this one seemed quite normal. Nothing too overly enhanced & everything seemed to be
