Sannata – Episode 4 Review

For all those who dont know about this serial, Let me give you a brief introduction of it. Plot of show revolves around Rukayya(Saba Kamar) and her life. Rukayya’s aunt Husna(Sajal Ali) went against her family and ran away with a man. Husna’s father and brother died as a consequence of this incident. After that Aapa Bi (Sameena Ahmed ) gave Husna a title of “Daayan”.

Husna died on spot while giving birth to her daughter and Rukayya was the one who raised her daughter after her death.She named cute little angel as “Pari”. Time flew away and Pari grew up.Everytime aapa bi scold her,Rukayya was there to fight for Pari and to console her. Because of that, Pari considered Rukayya’s everything as her own property and got really possessive about her. All she wants is to become a shadow of Rukayya.

I want to add up here that child artist who is performing role of Pari is doing complete justice with her role. She is such a young and cute girl and giving unbelievable and unexpected output. Our artists (not all of them,ofcourse :P ) should take some acting classes from her.

Ashfaq ,being brother of Aapa Bi handles all the financial matters of their house. Aapa Bi didnot tell him that husna came back and died after giving birth to Pari.Rukayya and Pari met Ashfaq.  I can smell something fishy in Ashfaq character.Today was the first time when we came across Ashfaq’s role in serial,he visited Aapa Bi’s place after long time just to get the papers of house in which Aapa Bi is living with rest of ladies.

Pari grew up and her role is given to Sajal Ali again. Her entrance was beyond my expectation.With the passage of time,her hatred for aapa bi developed more and she was about to burn Aapa Bi but Rukayaa caught her on the spot. After that,Rukayya slapped her and it was for sure unexpected for Pari  and she got fits soon after that. Salma considered that its due to some supernatural power, Naseeban doesnt believe in that whereas Aapa Bi curses that tree under the shadow of which Pari spends her whole day.

Now coming towards the part where Naseeban,Rukayya and Pari visited Tomb of some famous religious personality. I really liked that part in today’s episode. The background score was truly magical and it was complimenting overall atmosphere created for that scene. Pari came across a strange man, looking much like Fakeer Baba, who keep on following her till she was in Tomb. Mystery man’s mystery is still a question mark. It may be revealed in upcoming episodes.

For the first time in television industry, I have come across a different approach to unfold the story. I really like how Saba Kamar, wearing plain white frock, is narrating whole story of her life throughout the show.

Without any doubt, this show is one of its own kind.Viewers have high expectations from this serial. Let’s see whether this serial will live up to our expectations or not.

Do give your feedback about today’s episode.

Stay Blessed,
Rabia Basharat.

  • Lol! I think you need to watch the last episode it’s her father! ruqaaiya’s husband ! LOL

    • Of whom father u r talking about Gorilla ? I am unable to get your point.
      Rukayya is still unmarried. :)

      Salma is Apa bi’s daughter like husna.. Ruqqya is Aapa bi’s nawaasi.
      Salma’s husband (Rukayya’s father) is dead and Salma always feel guilty about it.Maybe that story will be revealed later.

      Husna’s father and brother Sikander were unable to bear the shock and died.
      I hope you are clear with every relation now.. :)

  • First of all, the writer of this post has spelled Saba’s last name wrong-it is Saba Qamar.
    Second, the child who plays Pari is not doing justice to the role and it’s the director and writer’s fault that they have given such cheap dialogues to the girl. She is such a small girl that she shouldn’t have been given dialogues such as saying “chichunder” to the boy.
    Third, there is no doubt that after episode 1 in which husna dies, if anyone has seen the promos of sannata should know that sajal ali will come back as Pari as it is shown in promos that Pari will want to marry danish taimoor.

    This post is just a summary of an episode that wasn’t hard to understand, everything is straightforward but i do agree this drama is interesting.

    As for the quality of english in this post, you need to learn good english to write a better, more clear review.

    • Hang on Hang on Aisha.. :P..

      Healthy Criticism is more than welcome. It doesnt matter whether we spell Kamar or Qamar. Main point is that reader should be able to understand it. Like Aisha is spelled as Ayesha too.. :)

      Secondly, its her role in serial which is not her actual nature. She was asked to do such role and she did it well.I agree to your point that she should not be given such dialogues that snatch away innocence of a child from her. But again,it was requirement of this serial.

      Thirdly,not everyone comes across promos so we have to mention that in our reviews.

      Fourthly, it was, INDEED A SUMMARY of all episodes and there is a reason behind that. We haven’t reviewed first 3 episodes of serial so we have to summarize whole story in this review. :)

      Fifthly, this review was written in a bit of hurry thats why it was unable to fulfill readers expectations as far as better explanation is concerned.
      You can read rest of my reviews and after that u wont be able to say that again.. :p

      I hope I made everything clear dear..

      No offence.. :)

      • Actually, it does matter that the name is spelled with a q, not a k because that’s how every post spells Saba Qamar’s last name. Name spelling matters unless a name has different variations like Noman Ejaz’s last name is spelled also as Ijaz and Noman is also spelled like Nouman. I know if my name is not spelled as Aisha but Ayesha, then i wouldn’t like that because the pronounciation of my name changes.
        Second- if the girl who plays pari was shown to not talk to her elders at all, we would have understood it because she never gets the love a child should get but it is not a requirement to show that she is a rude child. The kid in such a small age is learning such rude language and for this, I blame the writer.

      • Wow, Aisha, you need to calm down. I’m not sure what you were expecting but like with all the other shows, this was a summary and I didn’t expect any less. As for criticizing Rabia’s English, as a native English speaker, I find her post quite comprehensive and easy to understand. You may want to focus on your own grammar. If you feel the episode reviews need to be approached a different way, I’m sure the reviewers on this site will welcome that. Otherwise, just sit back and appreciate the writers who write reviews on this site.

        Rabia and the rest of the team, please keep up the good work. Your reviews often help me decide whether a serial, or even an episode is worth watching, or if the review will suffice :)

        • I was talking to Rabia, not you. I don’t need to learn english as i was born and raised in the U.S so you don’t need to teach me english. My opinions are to the writer of this post and not to you. I’m not trying to change someone’s opinions and everyone’s opinions matter so you need to calm down.

      • Hey I love the way you have replied her. love your attitude girl!! Awesome!!

        I never comment or anything. But her comment forced me to comment here and let you know that you are doing an amazing job. Beside that, I tried to watch this weird drama but couldn’t understand it since its too slow but your review made it much easier. I’m definitely gonna watch it all over again. Thank you and Keep the good work coming.. ahh some people are just too damn hurtful!

    • Well Aisha first of all you are pretty damn rude to begin with. Secondly if you think you can do a better job at writing reviews then please do write one for us. Thirdly we damn care that you were born and raised in the states. It definitely doesn’t show in your attitude nor does it reflect in the amount of interest and information you portray about the paki industry; ie qamar with a q and not a k. Like really who gives a you-know-what. Lastly you may be born and raised in the states but your comment proved that your mentality is worse than the average paki because all your post consisted of criticism which the average paki does quite well so congrats on proving your true identity!

      Rabia, thank you for the review. I was unable to catch the beginning episodes and gour review made everything clear for me :)
