Silvatein – Episode 5

Ohkay so this whole episode revolved around Natasha. Her wedding, her expectations, her complaints, her mood swings.

The wedding was wrapped up quickly so as to shed more light on the post-marriage issues. Natasha, the moment her day started was not at all happy with how her wedding was coming along. She disliked being getting ready at home & hated that the venue of her wedding was the garden of her own house with a simple menu for the guests. It’s ok, being a bride one does expect a lot & want their wedding to be perfect but what’s the point of nagging about the things which can not be changed?

Natasha was acting all mean & rude. She had no courtest for her wheelchair ridden MIL who was happy for her son’s wedding. Natasha made a fuss about all the things & the funniest scene was the Skype session where every family member was in sync with the jokes they cracked but Natasha was like a fish out of water. Her nagging on tiny bit things totally showed what sort of a spoiled brat she is. Which bride does not know that there are going to be some norms & customs which each & every family celebrates once the new bride steps in their homes? Every bride knows that the wedding day is going to be a long one but Natasha expected that Bilal should have bid good bye to everyone & should’ve spent time with her which was impossible. Actually, she wasn’t happy about Bilal & his job, that’s why she was nitpicking on the smallest details too.

She came out to be as a person who just doesn’t like anything good happening to her as well. First she was jealous of Zeb for getting the proposal of Bilal but when she grabbed it by luck, she got over it ASAP. The way she ran back to her parents & started backbiting about Bilal showed she is one of those lasses who create the mishaps for themselves with their own hands. Her wedding was anything but that which she expressed & felt about it.

Zeb, on her own was dealing with her wedding properly. She was seen quite indulged in all the things that were happening around. Her mother’s discussion with Zeb after the rukhsati was quite overwhelming. She was just sitting there helpless like any other parent who’d feel the same sense of sadness once their daughter leaves their home for good. She was sympathizing with Natasha for no good reason because she didn’t know Natasha is trying to come back to that house once again.

I really am unable to understand what the character of Natasha actually wants out of her life? Does she has some sort of a disease of restlessness or she hates being happy? Let’s see how Zeb’s life would unfold. Another thing that came as a surprise was that Bilal’s elder brother is married however I thought he would be in pair with Zeb, may be the story will turn out to be like it.

Keep Supporting,

  • Very disappointing and bad review of a great episode. Not everything in life and not every person is black or white you know. Samira Fazal has written a great story and this was one of the best episodes so far.

      • & I am not commenting on the skills of the writer of what she has written down. I am just commenting on what I am seeing in the character of Natasha. I am sure no one would've like the way she has behaved. So it's ok. :)

        • Hmmm maybe you been very lucky in life Zahra as to the people that have been around you but Im sure everyone can relate to the character of Natasha. She is one of those people who whatever happens in their life think that it is because people around them are scheming it to happen that way, like the whole world is against them or something. Like for instance instead of thinking it as a majboori of the poor MIL that she couldnt come up the stage, natasha thought she was insulted cos she was asked to come down. These people in the end ruin things for their ownselves as they are always trying to be over smart in their thinking. like for instance her wedding night. which was so funny and you didnt even mention that in your review or when Zeb goes off in the morning and the whole family thinks shes run away…so well , i was looking forward to the review but for me it lacked a little depth. Nothing more, hope u didnt mind:)

          • Thank you for your detailed input Xenia & now you've talked exactly what I have felt too. She is creating mishaps for her ownself which does not even exist & people do not sympathize with such sort of people rather they end up disliking them. That's the reason I wrote only about her in this review because she has failed to impress me.

            & about Zeb running away, actually I want to see more of that part of her story grow like the way she's trying to help that boy. Then I will start commenting on it, but first I have to see some more of it. Please keep commenting & letting in your opinions & reviews because it means a lot & yes, there's nothing there to be felt bad about so I did not mind. :)

  • agree with Xenia, there is lack of depth in this review, I think the writer has provided firm grounds for the behaviour of each character, the episode was best so far and the whole situation was skill fully executed. in fact I was not expecting this play to be so interesting, the characters r more than real and humour is quite natural most of the times. I think u will like coming episodes and we would be able to read more interesting review:)

    • I am totally enjoying the show Mrs. Asim & I have no doubt about any of the characters, I liked the first episode & found it realistic that's why I chose this drama for reviewing. I have no issues with any other characters whatsoever & nor am I commenting on the script or the skills of the writer. In fact, I have pointed out exactly what the writer has tried to show about the character of Natasha. I don't think any of her gestures were justified & her unnecessary tantrums & running-back-to-mom-dad-like-a-cry-baby attitude is what anyone would like. I do not like her character at all, that's why the whole review was about her because she was covered in the whole episode. Don't worry, I'd be happy to review the upcoming episodes because I am sure we're past through her character & she will now take a back-seat. :)
