LAA- Episode 1 & 2 Review

“Birth is nothing without virtue, and we have no claim to share in the glory of our ancestors unless we strive to resemble them”. Our identity not only defines who we are but where we’re from; our bloodline gives us

Ohkay so, over all it was a very enjoyable episode to watch. I liked the challenge & I think these team challenge episodes are becoming my favorite because you get to see the high energy of all the contestants &

Mausam- Episode 3 & 4 Review

Mausam comes across as a hodge-podge of previous HUM TV dramas and not a very good one at that! The channel clearly didn’t get the memo that repackaging old classics will not guarantee the success of its latest presentation. I’m

Pehchaan- Episode 9 Review

Pain. Agony. Ordeal. Love. This is the story of Laila’s life; a life she didn’t choose for herself but one that she was pushed into without her wholehearted consent. A life she dreams would be filled with happiness. Happiness? What

Izteraab – Episode 11!

So this episode was based on what’s Zara’s going through & what’s she feeling. I think Dua’s character has definitely taken a nice turn & she is making some sense right now. I think the treatment Dua’s character has gotten

Drama Of The Week- Neeyat

MasterChef Pakistan Week 06 – Elimination Round!

Elimination round was good & so was Chef Shai’s appearance in the show. She really lit up the kitchen with her presence & more importantly her positive attitude & the encouragement she extended to the contestants BUT, the best moment

Marasim – Episode 11!

Once again I enjoyed watching Marasim. This episode was based on what Nayab was going through & I think they’ve done a brilliant job in portraying her feelings. The editing seemed a little off like a lot of scenes were

Aahista Aahista – Episode 02!

Hmmmm, did you guys feel a thing for any of the characters? Nope, me neither. Apart from the crisp quality, vibrant colours & the artistic camerawork, this play hasn’t offered anything as yet. I am still waiting to be wowed

MasterChef Pakistan Week 06 – Kitchen Challenge!

Bay Emaan Mohabbat- Episode 17 & 18

I’m beginning to think that Dania is schizophrenic. How else can she justify her behaviour and her repeated affirmations that she cares about her parents izzat? Mere apney gharwaley mujhpe aetebaar nahin karte– umm, not very long ago, she was

Adhura Milan- Episode 4 & 5 Review

Tabrez Alam’s heroic act soon turned to a fiasco when word reached Falak Sher Bhai. Woh insaan hi kya jo bedaahgh ho… Nayyab tried her best to plead her case of wanting to stay at but her words fell on

Izteraab – Episode 10!

Last thing I wanted to see in this drama was the quivering lips of some uncle we don’t even know nor even have sympathy with. Do they really think that by throwing in some more characters they’ll be able to

Drama Of The Week – Tanhaiyan

I must confess that I wasn’t very sure if Tanhaiyan would have the same effect on me which it did when I watched it the first time it went on air. I was not even ten years old when Tanhaiyan

Afzal Bhaie – Episode 27

I must say today’s installment was not that bad as previous one. Story has taken a completely different turn  and we should get used to call him as “Afzal Bhaie” rather than “Pyarai Afzal” . Tum bhi bohat bara subject

MasterChef Pakistan Week 05 – Black Apron Round!

Ahista Ahista – Episode 01!

Writing of Aliya Bukhari, direction of Haseeb Hassan & production of Momina Duraid, Ahista Ahista was one of the most highly anticipated programs that hit our screens last night. I must say the moment you tune into this drama you

Marasim – Episode 10!

Once again an engaging episode of Marasim. Once again they managed to make us feel emotionally attached to all the characters. Before saying anything I feel the special mention must go to Sonia Hussain for playing her part so well

MasterChef Pakistan Week 05 – Team Challenge!

I know I might be a bit late in noticing but the opening title track of the show is really nice. It’s shot in the typical MasterChef way but the tune is catchy & it’s a great way to help

Merai Humdum Merai Dost – Episode 06 & 07

Mausam – Episode 2

This drama is full of stereotypes, I am not sure where to start from! The rich outgoing aunty who doesn’t have time for her son(remember Zaroon’s mother?), the wealthy boy who has everything in the world but he still feels

Pehchaan- Episode 7 Review

Love him, or hate him, you can’t ignore him- Mansoor is exactly the kind of bad boy your mother warned you about. And he does so with such ease, you wouldn’t know what hit you! Mera kya hai, mere paas

Izteraab – Episode 09!

My goodness! This episode was just not ending. I was whatsapping in between, surfing the internet but still it seemed never-ending. Finally! A sigh of relief that it got over & now I get to have my say on this

Drama of The Week – Wajood-e-Laraib!

Wajood e Laraib; a drama which had Umera Ahmed & Sakina Samo written all over it, but I must say all in a positive way. Aired in 2004 on Indus TV, it had 17 episodes which could’ve been cut down

Pyarai Afzal – Episode 26 :o

Why ? Why did this happen today ? Pyrai Afzal transformed into Murderer Afzal ? Man, I can’t buy this.. Like seriously ? Was it necessary that Wali has to be murdered ? Lets suppose, he was destined to die

Marasim – Episode 09!

I must admit, when I started watching this drama I thought it was just a typical story with a bunch of insecure mother in laws torturing the wives of their sons. It came across as a drama which had nothing

MasterChef Pakistan Week 04 – Kitchen Challenge!

So, this episode began with the elimination. Ali Shah, Aneela & Adnan were in the bottom 3 & one of them had to go. Going by the judges’ remarks, I am not too sure who deserved to go because all

Bay Emaan Mohabbat- Episode 16 Review

For reasons unbeknownst to me, ARY has decided to change the timings of this serial- it will now air on Fridays at 7pm. As if I didn’t have enough to watch on Friday already! One of the main reasons I

Adhura Milan- Episode 3 Review

Mausam – Episode 1

Just like all the other plays written by Aliya Bukhari, this one also started with a bang. This first episode was fast paced and engrossing. The story has absolutely nothing new to offer (just like Dil-e-Muzter, also written by the

Koi Nahi Apna – Episode 7

When I watched the promo for this episode, I was quite sure that this will probably be the episode which will make me feel for and connect to Alvira’s character more than ever. There were some parts which did make

Izteraab – Episode 08!

Ohkay, kind of a slow episode but still better in terms of a progress in the story. Actors have played their parts really well but I am kind of concerned for the young girl playing the character of Sofia. I
