Silvatein Episode 07 – Good Developments.

I kind of enjoyed tonight’s episode. It had many things going on within & with each & everyone.

It seems like Natasha has had a transformation from a spoiled brat to a wise housewife. She seems to have made her place in her family & gels in quite well with each & everyone. She was also seen taking responsibilities on a smaller scale & was also regretful for her behaviour in the early days of her marriage. One thing that took me by surprise was that Bilal mentioned staying with Natasha for a FEW MONTHS now, whereas Zeb is still attending that aggressive kid Dilawar. It kind of looked like a mistake that why would Zeb be going to his place if a couple of months have already passed?

Natasha is paying extra attention to her new family & especially she is in complete compatibility with Bilal, which was good to see because Bilal being a gentleman has taken care of Natasha the way he promised her, I am sure this is the reason she has had a drastic change. One more thing could be that in her in-laws, she is treated as a centre of attention all the time. Each & every member has the name of Natasha in every conversation they have & in her own house she always has shared the attention with Zeb. In fact, Zeb was showered with a little more from all the members of their clan, that’s why Natasha always had a rift with Zeb.

Munize looks more like a saas to Natasha than her actual MIL. Munize’s mother is least bothered about what is happening & who is feeling what because she has indulged herself into her own activities. I loved the conversation Zeb had with Natasha’s BIL. Whatever he said was true & that hit the spot for Zeb considering the situation she was in. Another thing that is worth mentioning is that I loved how the MIL rationalized Natasha’s attitude & thinking towards Munize & Zeb’s idea of spending time together. Natasha was seen in full glory of positivity till she knew that no such character like Zeb was hovering around her & claiming her part of attention but the moment she heard that Munize is having a girls day out with Zeb, she stooped back to her level & once again left the house without notifying anyone, just because she wanted to act like a cry baby in front of her mother. I loved her MIL’s honesty about how she felt at what Natasha had just said. She even proposed the idea of being up front & directly talking to the person involved rather than beating around the bush in front of someone who is not even in the scenario.

One thing that has totally ticked me off is the twist & story of Dilawar & his whining mother. I am not at all willing to see those faces again & I even fail to understand the kind of a project Zeb is working on which involves going to a certain teenager’s house & give them the lectures? She was in a creative field as far as I remember, at the beginning of the drama, but how come now it seems that she is working voluntarily for some NGO? I kind of fail to understand her job & her designation & c’mon who would waste their time & energy on such a spoiled, dangerous looking teenager? I hope I don’t get to see more of them because it looks like a misfit in the whole drama. May be his flick was introduced because in the meantime writer wanted to move things on with Natasha, so in stead of making Zeb look like someone who’s got nothing to do, the idea of this suicidal teenager was introduced.

Over all, I really enjoyed the episode & it kind of makes me smirk at how these two sisters do not hold back in mentioning each other’s negatives in front of the outsiders. Natasha was seen doing these sort of things in front of Yawar & Bilal too & Zeb has mentioned about Natasha’s negativity in front of Mikaal & even Munize now too. Munize, very clearly told that we siblings are over-protective about one another so I think Zeb being a wise person should understand & she should be cautious to not loose talk about Natasha so casually in front of her SIL.

  • Finally… a great review from you Zahra. This time I think I like your review better than the episode:) I too was bored by the suicidal teen and am totally confused about Zeb's job. I thought this was because I missed the first 2-3 episodes.
    Anyway, just wanted to say that when the MIL is sitting with Natasha watching drama and starts typing on her Ipad and says ab drama upload kia hai tau comments bhi likhne honge…haha so reminded me of you, Fatima and Marium :)

    • Thank you for your feedback. It seems now I get a bit cautious writing a review because I know you're going to read it for sure. LOL! Yes, I know it reminded me of all the drama buffs & how we are keen about the comments too. :)

      I am happy someone actually agrees that Dilawar's scene is not impressive. & even if you missed out the first few episodes, it shows a complete different job that Zeb was doing, I thought she was related to Arts & Creativity but her job was anything but babysitting a teenager. :| I hope it gets over ASAP!

  • very good review Zahra, really much better than previous two;) , about Zaib's job we know from the first episode that she is working for an NGO, in first episode she brought a dress at home and told her mum and aunt that her NGO is helping women to sell their embroided clothes..something like that. and to Bilal's brother too she mentiones taht there is much to do in Pak. anyways I like this play, and really liked ur review today:) keep it up.

    • Thank you, probably because the episode itself was a better one than the previous couple of episodes, that's why I had much more to write about it. & Thanks for letting us know about her work because it got really confusing & I remember her mentioning about a lady who works at the office bought those clothes from someone, she never used the word NGO but it's good that you clarified it. & I still believe that no NGO worker leaves everything aside & focuses on just ONE case. :)
