Ye Dil Mera Episode 26 Story Review – Filler Episode

Ohkay so, this was yet another filler episode of Ye Dil Mera with flashbacks & repetitive scenes all over it. However, I will definitely say that the preview of the next episode had me sighing in relief because the story will not only move forward but the much needed truth will be revealed because it’s about time. Stories like Ye Dil Mera require precision when it comes to timing but unfortunately, our drama-makers tend to take things slow & end up killing the charm & the impact of the story which is required to keep the interest alive. This episode definitely had amazing acting done by both Ahad Raza Mir & Sajal Aly, props to them for sure however, at this point, what’s more important is that the drama is wrapped up & not dragged more than it is already!

The Only Development

The most important development in this episode was Ana’s call to Nargis Bua. It obviously didn’t take a second for Nargis Bua to connect the dots & realize that the boy Mani she once knew is now Ana’s husband Amaan. The entire scene where Nargis Bua ended up analyzing how Amaan was always very vigilant & keen everytime he interacted with her was nice, it showed that she was now understanding why Amaan behaved a certain way with her. The only person alive who Amaan has fond memories of is Nargis Bua, therefore it is left to be seen whether she will reciprocate those feelings or she will continue to show her loyalty to Meer Farooq, whom she very much knows is guilty of the allegations coming from Amaan.

Ana’s Character Has Zero Growth

Since the beginning of the drama, I have been eagerly waiting for Ana’s character to evolve & show some growth but even after 26 episodes, that is yet to be seen. It is unfortunate that Ana’s character has not been etched out intelligently enough. She continues to be in some lala land, even when she found out that her husband had some psychological issues & even now when her husband has clearly told her that her father has murdered his family. Ana’s stroll around Daryabagh was her way of finding the evidence needed to prove her father’s innocence? I never once heard Amaan telling her that she will find the answers in Daryabagh but out of nowhere, Ana told Amaan that she was going out to do her part of the research. It is unfortunate but Ana’s character is not as convincing or well-thought out as Amaan’s. The writer has left no margin for error when it comes to Amaan but the rest of the characters seem to have been dealt as an afterthought, especially after seeing their behavioral patterns for so many weeks.

Ana came across her parents’ home. She could recollect some memories & realized that the house seemed familiar. She was unable to figure it all out but she knew there was something about that place which struck a chord. The good thing that I got to see in this episode was that Ana started asking questions & not just any questions, the valid ones too, so it was definitely a good change. She even asked Amaan but he decided not to tell her anything because he doesn’t want to hurt her? As much as Amaan’s love for Ana is understandable & him not wanting to hurt her more is also justified, but keeping her in the dark that too when herself has started to pick up the pieces is not required. Amaan should’ve told her that this used to be her house & that’s where they both met years ago, I don’t think it would’ve made any difference, rather it would’ve helped altering Ana’s perspective because she had already heard about the murder of the woman who owned the place.

Ye Dil Mera Episode 26 Story Review - Filler Episode

Amaan recollected his thoughts & once again reminded himself that he was not going to forgive Meer Farooq. Amaan once again called Meer Farooq to see how far he had come but he found him clueless. Meer Farooq continued to brag about how powerful & influential he was, but he was making a fool of himself. Also, Meer Farooq got Nargis’ Bua’s call out of the blue, so the first thing he should’ve done is spoken to her on the phone wondering if she knew something about Ana or weighing in the possibility that Ana must’ve contacted Nargis Bua to let her father know that she was doing alright. Ali Baksh who usually does all the brainstorming for Meer Farooq also didn’t think of such a possibility that Nargis Bua’s call could help them find Ana. Both Meer Farooq & Ali Baksh do love to believe that they are very intelligent but let’s just say, they’re not!

Farhana Khala struck again & this time, she was in a very serious mood but that was not the only thing different – she had finally changed her position & was now sitting at a chair. She was also not sipping a cup of coffee, which means she is not going to waste any time & is now coming to finally find the answers to all of her questions. A few things might’ve changed but one thing which remained consistent was her poor acting, so well done!

Waiting For The Next Episode

This episode of Ye Dil Mera was a filler which did not take the story forward whatsoever. However, Ahad & Sajal definitely deserve full points for their brilliant performances. Some of the scenes were definitely interesting & engaging like Amaan’s call to Meer Farooq & him going to the same place where his parents were killed. Ana walking towards that house with so many questions running through her mind, these few moments were definitely good to see. I am definitely looking forward to the next episode because it’s high time they let the viewers know what exactly happened with Nilofer Baji.

Another episode, another continuity issue. Amaan was in a leather jacket when he picked Ana up from the roadside, when he brought her home, he was in his checkered shirt, which he was wearing before Ana left for a walk. I think as much as the director is responsible for bearing these minute details in mind, the actors are also responsible for not paying attention to such details & not thinking about the continuity of the scenes. Anyways, please share your thoughts about this episode of Ye Dil Mera.

Keep Supporting,
Cheers,
Zahra Mirza.

  • this is the second episode i watched of this drama and i truly loved the scenery, the direction was brilliant so the viewer can really appreciate the scenery which was very beautiful

  • Thank you for the review. I agree with you. Is Anna looking for some diary hanging on one of trees? What is she looking for when she does not even remember her childhood days in that town. Bau jee called Mir Farroq when she knows what will be the result. She should have got on the first bus to the town when her child is such trouble. Why didn’t Aman tell Anna it was her house. Sajal dress remains same through series of scene but Ahad’s shirts tend to change out of no where. I feel he paid entire concentration on acting which brilliant no doubt :p direction flaws are their. They should have merge this visit with their honeymoons, that would have made sense.
    Khalo is letting Khala face dangerous Farooq all by herself?

    • i have no idea why khaloo letting khala do this on her own or to not be smart about it. how can he let go so easily! so unrealistic.
      buaa called MF because she thinks he can rescue Ainna.

    • Thank you Pakistani for sharing your thoughts. Yes, you’re so right, they could’ve covered this scenario the first time Ana & Amaan visited Daryabagh, it would’ve saved a few episodes. Nargis Bua should be honest with Ana because she could hear how tensed & distressed she was. I guess everyone in this drama likes to take wrong decisions, which slows down the process of story development. I guess Khalu still thinks Meer Farooq is innocent & may be because he is so tired of Farhana Khala’s paranoia that he wants to send her away so that he can relax & be at peace in her absence. ;)

  • Meer Farooq is a man of contacts us ko asani as pata chal sakta hai k is naam k passengers ne abroad travel kiya ya naheen….

    Secondly, he can easily trace Aman vehicle through safe city cameras in Islamabad and also through the CCTV at toll plazas/ entry/exit points of motorway/ expressway.

    The highly worried Meer Farooq should not leave any stone unturned to locate her daughter. Aur aik aur area is to contact Bua himself. Chalain yaad naheen raha to khud us ne contact kiya lekin sahab bahadur and hamnawa ne us se tasalee kerney k liye bhee baat naheen ki.

    They are uselessly dragging. This is what happening to us as viewers for last many years now. Every other drama having some success takes longer route towards it’s conclusion…. aiwen aee!

    • Bilkul sahi kaha, bas aik drama jo acha hai, usay drag karna to farz ho jata hai hamare drama-makers pe. Meer Farooq ko ye to pata lag gaya tha ke wo dono Pakistan se bahir nahi gaye because this is what he told Ali Baksh, baad mai Amaan ne khud bhi ye baat confirm kar di thi. Islamabad aur Daryabagh mai ziyada distance waisay bhi nahi hai but Meer Farooq lazy lag rahay hain. Nargis Bua abbhi bhi apni loyalty prove karne nikli hain, jabke un becharon ki koi value hi nahi Meer Farooq aur unke humnawa Ali Baksh ki nazron mai.

  • Superb review as usual Zahra! Both Ahad & Sajal have acted brilliantly. I agree with you, Meer Farooq should’ve took Bua ji’s call as she even conveyed that she has something important to say. It should have alerted Meer Farooq or at least Ali Bakhsh. May be it was planned just to drag one more episode before they reveal Amaan’s identity to Meer Farooq.

    One more thing Zahra, before bringing Ana to Daryabagh, Amaan did tell her that if she wants to find evidences to support Meer Farooq, then she will get her answers in Daryabagh. That’s why Ana agreed to go with him.

    • Thank you so much Sheetal. Oh accha, I might’ve missed that conversation of Amaan & Ana, however him keeping her in the dark is so not required at this stage of the drama. Yes, Nargis Bua’s call should’ve rang the alarm for both Meer Farooq & Ali Baksh but oh well, they’re too busy dragging the drama.

  • I have to highly disagree. In my opinion this drama is going at the perfect pace. The story has a lot of emotions and shouldn’t just be rushed. The acting itself is so good it keeps me glued. I get confused, ppl say dramas all rush their endings abruptly, and now when they’re taking the proper time (cause we know what happened for the majority of the story) we want it rushed for Anaa which to me wouldn’t make sense. All I know is, it’s one of the best dramas we currently have on and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Who knows what will be coming up next.

    • Good to know you’re enjoying the pace of the drama Sunrise. Things would’ve made much more sense if they had shown some growth in Ana’s character, till date she continues to be clueless, which is not the right or realistic treatment given to such a character who is facing so much after her marriage.

  • Just want to correct one thing u wrote in the last episode’s review. Daria Bagh is not a place abroad my dear! It is part of Pakistan and Amaan also confirmed this detail while talking to Meer Farooq in this episode. Plz keep these details straight while reviewing. Do some research before writing such a responsible piece.

    • I so wish you would’ve understood the sarcasm Journalist, however I will thank you for clarifying my point further. I spoke about time-zone sarcastically because Meer Farooq & Amaan are shown to be in Pakistan, however when Amaan called, it was pitch dark but when Meer Farooq received the call, it was a bright sunny day. It was a mistake on the director’s part where he merged two scenes without even considering that Daryabagh & Islamabad are both 2 cities of the same country, therefore the time couldn’t be so different. I guess you got a clarification in this episode after Amaan confirmed that he was in Pakistan, I got it in the previous episode. :)

      Don’t worry my friend, I always do my thorough research. However, I will urge you to read the reviews carefully & understand the sarcasm before pointing out the non-existing mistakes. Also, I am assuming those 20 people who liked your comment also didn’t get the sarcasm & my point of view about the timezone! ;)

    • Hye dear, read the review carefully dear. She didn’t say that Daryabagh is in another country dear. All she said was that the time difference between Daryabagh and Islamabad made her ‘wonder’ dear. Please open your eyes before writing a comment.

  • Our writers are just not good enough to write perfect thrillers. Plus Farhat ishiaq has a history of dragging and taking it slow. Be it Diyar e dil or yakeen ka safar. Although those were huge hit and bearable but this is a thriller story so can’t drag it. I am already loosing my interest because i know what happened. Aur ye saboot kya rerhi par lagy hain 60 rupee kilo k hisaab se daryabagh mein? Ana’s character is flawed big time. For past 2 episodes she is not making sense at all. I just hate this dragging.
    Really Wonderful review zahra g… very well pointed out each and every thing

    • LOL @ rerhi pe saboot milte hain 60 rs/kg, haha loved the precise definition Ahsan. I so agree, the last, thing thriller need is dragging & taking them forward slowly but wohi, Pakistani drama hai to kya kiya ja sakta hai. Yes, Farhat Ishtiyaq’s dramas tend to get slow but they should’ve set a new record with Ye Dil Mera. Ana’s character has been like this since the beginning not too impressed with her! Thank you for reading & contributing to the discussion Ahsan. :)

  • To YDM’s makers in Amaan’s words say ‘ Zara jaldi kar lain main bore ho rae hun’ lol.
    This was a filler episode with a couple of developments.
    1- Bua getting a call from ana. I think bua has a feeling that amaan hurt ana so she called mir farooq so that he rescues her. MF not batting an eye on getting a call from Bua g made sense to me bcz he atm is very emotional and acting foolishly.
    2- Farhana khala finally moving on. She got an email 3 days ago. Means before amaan and ana left for darya bagh. She checked it now. Aik to natty khala slow bohat hain. Your description of her change in position is hilarious. Aj to ye bhi nae kaha ‘ Ahsan this is not mixing up’ xD. Shaid ab mix hora ha.
    Performances wise I think my favorite scene had to be when amaan was standing by the roadside. When he imagined bullets being fired and his family being burnt. I think Ahad was extremely good there.
    As much as, there are continuity issues, I think there is a lot of repetition of dialogues. Something I definitely don’t expect from Farhat Ishtiaq.
    Promo for next episode looks promising. I just hope they don’t give away the whole episode in flashbacks.
    P.s A suggestion for MF. Ana’s cell phone in working now. You can trace her position. So be quick. Btw I found Adnan Siddiqui’s acting quite underwhelming.
    Also, a bit of suggestion for ana. Leave both amaan and agha jaan behind. Go to USA with farhana khala. The only person on planet Earth to have not wronged you 😂

    • Thank you so much Javeria for your insights. I agree, abb hum sab Amaan ki tarhaan bore ho rahay hain, to abb thori jaldi karni chahiye. :)

      Meer Farooq should have taken Nargis Bua’s call. Ali Baksh waisay to har waqt conspiracy theories propose karte rehte hain, is baar nai khayal aya ke Nargis Bua ki call ke peechay koi raaz ho sakta hai.

      Ahad’s performance in that scene indeed was superb but continuity issues take away the charm from the overall result. Yes, that seems to be a decent end but we all know Ana isn’t mature enough to do that. 🤭

  • Such a boring episode. Nothing happened as you say, apart from the Nargis Bua track.

    I can’t believe Amaan did not tell Ana, that the house she was staring at, was her own!! That would have lifted the episode a bit.

    As you say, zero growth in Ana’s character. She keeps saying mai sabooth moo pai maaroo gi, but how will she do that sitting around and asking Amaan questions. The only good thing she did, was call Nargis Bua. But she could have done that from her home. No need to travel to Dariya Baag for that.

    I so wanted this drama to remind me of Yakeen Ka Safar. But it really hasn’t. Zubi was an independent women,she made her own decisions. Right to wrong they were her own. Ana seems a bit more of Allah mia ka ghai type but a bit feisty.

    Really disappointed with this episode as you can tell. Next one looks better, can’t wait for to Farhana Khala’s detective skills in action. 😉

    Thank you for your apt review Zahra.

    • Thank you so much Azmat for reading the review & sharing your insights. Absolutely, with Sajal Aly in the picture, you always expect the character to have layers & be strong but Ana hasn’t lived upto the expectations. In the initial episodes, her naivety made sense because her father over-protected her but after her marriage to Amaan, a little bit of growth was necessary to keep her character relevant. This episode didn’t do much & yes, Amaan should’ve told Ana that it was her home, how is keeping things from her helping her? I am sure next episode will be super interesting. :)

  • Perfect review Zahra!!
    I have many questions
    1- Why is Amaan not telling Ana details now?
    2- Ana ko saboot darakht pey lagay milain gey Daryabagh main?
    3- Saboot ‘Moonh pay marnay’ ka itna shoq kyun hai Aima ko? Literally baar baar yhi dialogue.
    4- Meer Farooq’s people are trying to trace the calls. Pehlay to Ana ka phone band tha, ab jab us ney Bua ko call ki, phone on Kiya to Meer Farooq ko Pata kyun nai chala. Kisi number pe baar baar call Karen Woh band ho to jab Woh on ho, wesay hi msg aa jata hai k ‘this user is available now’.
    5- Farhana Khala ko 3 din pehlay mail aai, ab tak Woh kya Kar rahi thin?
    They really should wrap it up decently, instead of dragging it further.

    • Thank you so much PP for reading the review & sharing your thoughts. Yes, I don’t really understand the reason why Amaan is keeping Ana in the dark, now when he has already told her the truth about Meer Farooq. Yes, this thought crossed my mind that when Ana turned her phone on, why couldn’t Meer Farooq get it traced? Him ignoring Nargis Bua’s call was another mistake because the first thing he should’ve thought of was Ana contacting Nargis Bua. Farhana Khala ki slowness ki aik hi justification hai – unka sabun slow hai na. :)

  • Zahra great review the episode was boring but your review is brilliant I think this drama is copied from Indian Film Baazigar. Have you seen Baazigar? If yes than do you agree with me

      • It was the same story ahad is playing the same role that Shahrukh Khan played wanting to take revenge from a person because of whom his father died and also marrying the daughter of that person. Baazigar and Yeh Dil Mera have same stories

    Perfect review…used to search your review after the play watching.
    Episode 26 was just like the repeat telecast of previous one,
    Taking the advantage of fabulous performance of Ahad and sajal to drag the story.
    Bua ji as portrayed a nice and kind person should never try to contact with evil MF.
    She is already sinful for hiding the witness but at this time she tried to help him again.
    And how Aman could let Ana to use her cell phone , he doesn’t know that Mir can locate her by this either it’s not in use, (even he is shown as an IT expert). There should must be some logic for this .
    And why Aman is not telling her that he is the eye witness of his family murder,
    and that haunted house is belonged to her .
    and the nightmares she used to watch are the real life incident of her mother’s assassination.

    Plz change the format of comment section.
