Kadurat Episode 04 – Engaging and Entertaining

This latest installment of Kadurat was just as happening as the last three. The story definitely has newness and the treatment given to it is A-grade. Sanam Saeed looks terrific and fits in perfectly in a character that can’t be easy to perform. In the last episode Mina was shown as a scared and insecure girl who felt alienated in her own house. But, today’s episode went to prove that Mina’s character will have a lot of surprises in store for the viewers. Another good thing about the play is that each character is being revealed to us gradually. Apart from finding out that Mina is quite capable of making her family’s life a living hell all on her own; we also discovered that there is a reason why Alina is so scared of Mina.


Alina’s conversation with Daniyal in which she mentions that Mina has always taken away from her all that was dear to her went to show that Mina has always been this way with Alina. This means that she must have been visiting regularly while she was away at the hostel. All the conversations between the different characters were very well thought out and to the point. The screenplay definitely offers a few surprises because personally as a viewer I wasn’t expecting Mina to get “comfortable” this soon.


Mahmood’s conversation with the psychiatrist was also a very important scene which explained Mina’s behavior as well as Mina’s irregular visits to the psychiatrist and how she can be “cured”. When the doctor suggested to Mahmood that Mina needs a lot of love and care, I couldn’t help but think that maybe it was too late for that even! She has been living with the bitterness for far too long and also she had a scarred childhood. Yes, she is a grown up now and really should know better. But, the fact is that Mina is sick and unless her sickness is cured, her attitude will not get better.

k3Asad’s confidence was seriously shattered by the latest developments and I found his mother’s attitude rather odd. Even after everything that has transpired, she is not taking the matter seriously. She brushed off the Mina giving her milk incident aside without giving it a second thought. I think the viewers must be convinced by now that Mina indeed is a serious threat to the family.

k5The best scene of today’s episode had to be the one in which Mina tries to push Alina down the staircase. The timing was just perfect; it had been shot and acted out to perfection. The director and the actors deserve big thumbs up for that scene in particular. The editors of the play deserve special appreciation for the crisp editing which is one of the reasons that each episode keeps you glued to your seat.

k4Zoha Hassan has really amazed me with her script till now. The reason being that the story is brand new and also because the screenplay is very engaing. Although, the viewer’s have been watching Mina’s negative attitude right from the first episode but the things she does are very unpredictable. I did not expect her to go as far as giving all of Alina’s precious jewelry including her necklace which she treasured so much to the maid but I guess we should expect the unexpected from Mina from now on. A part of me was on the fence regarding the storyline because the entire “taking the revenge” can get boring but it surely isn’t the case till now.


Every play is a success or a failure based on team effort and Kadurat till now has proved to be a splendid example of great team effort. The writer has come up with a novel script since every second play revolves around married life and its complications. The director Aabis Raza has surely outdone himself, I cannot praise him enough. The editing team has done a better job than the editing team of many other more popular plays. All the actors are at their best in Kadurat and their portrayals are flawless. I know Kadurat has only four episodes to its credit but the fact that the story has a good pace helps you judge the overall storyline better. In today’s episode Momal Sheikh was just as brilliant as Sanam Saeed. Overall, this was a very engaging episode and the preview for the next episode made me look forward to more.

  • Very nice review fatima. The credit of editing and screenplay must go to Aabis Raza as I ve seen his profile. He is an editor turn director and a screen writer too. I am sharing this info coz we should support our talent if the one is talented.

    • Sundas thank you so much for sharing that information; it is so important to acknowledge and appreciate what he and many others like him are doing because they put in so much hard work to provide us with quality entertainment. Thank you once again:)

  • Hi Fatima Eid Mubarak in advance . Aap ke aur ap ke family ke lye dua karti hu. Great review. Mina 's sickness should be picked by doctor otherwise it will be a mess. Ofcorse she need assurance and love from her father. Great editing . Have a good time on Eid .

    • Hi Ranjan, Thank you so much. May Allah bless you and your family too, always. I ahree with you Ranjan, Yes of course she does but I think the wounds are so deep now that it will not be easy to heal them. It is always great to hear from you. Thank you once again for the warm wishes.

  • AOA Fatima hope u are doing good!! another great episode and another great review for that episode .. yar kadurat is one of those dramas in which I cannot predict what is the climax or even what is going to happen next… and honestly Fatima I was expecting Shaheen to be a good friend of Mina who will make her realize that she is on a wrong path but she also is the same as Mina is (as it is shown in the precap of the next episode).. I am really anxious to see the climax well I think that Mina will now try to create bonding between Daniyal and Herself.. overall the pace is awesome and the director is doing so well yes the editing is also great but I must say that the background music is just awesome and it adds so much to the scene going on!!! I am really looking frwrd to what happens next… And Fatima u as usual did an excellent job it seems as if ur reviews are just like food for me and I keep on looking them on the site while I knw that they are going to appear only on WEDs and FRIs .. plus wishing u and ur family a very very happy eid and may this eid become a memorable event of ur life .. remember me in ur prayerz alwayzzz..

    • Waelukun Asalam Maham, how have you been? Thank you so much for the wishes. First of all a very Happy Eid to you and your family. May Allah bless you on this special day and all year long:) I was expecting Shaheen to be a bad influence on Mina right from day one and she is exactly that. I can't even imagine what they will do once they are together. Yes, we saw in the promos that Mina was trying to win over Daniyal and Shaheen will try to woo Mina's father! Maham you have always been so kind, all I can do is to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Wish you the very best always. remember me in your duas too, of course I will remember you:)

      • I have been great Fatima… Thank you from the core of my heart for wishing me such a beautiful wishes and of course I will remember you in myb prayerss.. Yar thankyou again for such a nice and beautiful wordzz fatima !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • nice review fatima as always, yes this drama is very good, its near impossible to found loopholes in overall production in this episode, whether its editing, sequence of scenes, camera focusing, every episode has much new to offer, its not like after watching an episode we say story is still stuck where last episode is ended, so far it can be termed as the best project of aabis raza. kankar is also good, but when compared kadurat wins the race.

    • Totally agree with you on all accounts Rashid Nazir. i will definitely be looking forward to more from Aabis Raza. Thanks a lot for following the reviews and for liking them. I look forward to your feedback.

      • great to see, you read every comment and also respond back.

        i would also like to add some comments on acting, all actors are doing well but sanam saeed is at peak of her acting skill, the way she looks at her step siblings and mother, the hatred filled and revengeful eyes, her expression are something which cannot be described in words or through dialog,

  • A very engaging review as usual Fatima.The story is going on a very even pace and all the actors are doing a wonderful job. What i have understood about Meena's character till now is that she finds peace in giving torture and hurting feelings of those whom she hates. Her revenge has helped her built her evil nature. She is very spiteful and can even dare to destroy her father's company in order to satisfy her thirst of vengeance. I must say that Sanam Saeed has portrayed Meena's character beautifully. Thumbs Up!!!!

    • Totally agree with you Purple Gem. And from the looks of it, she has plenty of tricks under her sleeves! Thanks a ton for reading the reviews and for liking them. I really like your nick by the way:) have a great day.

      • Ohhh…yes….Thanku very much ;) …by the way… u would like to know that i am an under sixteen teen who is really crazy over pakistani dramas and reads ur reviews enthusiastically bcz of very farigh time…. u know …summer vacations.

        • Under sixteen really? You have such mature insights. I hope you will be following the dramas and reviews after the holidays end:) Just a few more days to go!

  • Salam Fatima.
    Firstly, I need to apologise for commenting late and not commenting at all for the last few episodes. Actually, I am on my vacation in Lahore, and you would know of how busy I would be with all my relatives visiting and the Eid shopping in progress as well. :)
    Secondly, your review of this drama is also flawless — in fact, just brilliant! Mashallah. :)
    Thirdly, yes, this drama has managed to capture my attention. Alhumdulillah, we are shown an absolutely different storyline here. I kind of got sick with the 'married-couples-and-their-fights' idea! This is one of those dramas I am happy to spend my time on – totally worth it. :D
    And lastly, Fatima Api, I would like you be to be a little informal in response to my comment, please. ;) I was hoping you would regard me as a younger sister, please? :) :D (Please don't mind. ;))

  • Salaam Fatima, Eid Mubarak to you, your family and all your friends. And Eid Mubarak to every here.

  • Salaam Fatima! Eid Mubarak to you, your family and friends. I would also like to wish Eid Mubarak to everyone reading this message.

  • The editing perhaps has been one of the best things about this play.The music is very fine as well.It describes the exact feeling growing in Minah's heart! SO far so good!
