Chup Raho – Bus Kur Du!!!!!!

NOTHING about this drama makes sense anymore; I am not sure what is more annoying – Numair’s never-ending manipulative ways, Rameen’s infinite stupidity or Manal’s “acceptance” of her evil husband. Numair has definitely not changed, there was a time when Numair’s actions made sense but ever since he resurfaced he has turned into someone who is very difficult to understand. He is still manipulative and selfish and he is still conveniently saying things to Rameen like he always thought she was better than Manal like it is no more than a “compliment”!! Rameen shouldn’t be there in that house in the first place but since we know she is stupid enough to go the extra mile to get herself into trouble so let’s not fret over that but let’s just consider everything that happened to her after she came to that house. How can it be okay for someone who raped her to apologize to her while he holds her? Why did Numair keep on reminding Rameen what he did to her like this was light years ago. It was as if Rameen had amnesia and it was in her best interest to be reminded of everything that transpired in the past. That scene was wrong on so many levels. And why didn’t Rameen just walk out of the door after hearing all that? Yes she wanted to help her niece but is it even possible for a girl to choose to be in this sort of a situation? Rameen is at Manal’s house out of choice which is really ironic or perhaps comic!

Our heroine has the option of staying miles away from the man who abused her over and over again but she would much rather stay in the same house with him even if it is for a few hours because she loves playing Mother Teresa! Rameen came to get a divorce from Azar and somehow no one informed her that Azar is dead. Numair is obviously lying to her because Azar is his first cousin therefore he must know that he is dead! Well let’s not doubt that he died because we all saw Humaima’s tweet in which she said that her brother’s character died! I have no idea what is going on! Does Manal know that Numair raped Rameen? It seemed like she did know it but then digesting the fact that she is okay with that is very very hard. We never saw the confrontation between Manal and Numair and we don’t really see a change in Numair. Manal is still with him so he didn’t lose much except for his social status which in my opinion is not a punishment big enough. I don’t feel anything for any of the characters but the way the story keeps on progressing forward with absolutely no focus at all is actually very upsetting. The writer must think that the viewers are intellectually challenged because any person with even a little bit of common sense will have a very tough time liking this drama.

The way Rameen has proved to be a good omen for every house she set her foot in is just plain ridiculous. She can win over the most challenging children within seconds, she can clean up your house and water your plants and expect nothing in return! I am sure everyone needs a Rameen in their lives! Numair is back to playing games again and he is running the show once again – definitely NOT what we wanted to see! This play is getting more absurd with every passing episode – time to put an end to this torture!
