Ye Dil Mera Episode 29 Story Review – A Hit & A Miss

Ohkay so, this was a hit & a miss episode of Ye Dil Mera. Where some of the scenes were good, the other failed to leave an impact. Half the time, this episode covered what the viewers already know & have memorized. The only new or unseen scenes were very few like Amaan’s interactions with Abdur Rehman Baba & later showing how the argument between Nilofer Baji & Meer Farooq escalated.

The Quest Continues

Ana’s dreams are back but more than that, her memory is shaken & now she is finding herself being reminded of a few bits & bobs from her childhood, which included memories of her mother Nilofer. Ana is now trying to analyze things on her & trying to make sense of what she is seeing & is being reminded of. This episode didn’t show Ana much but for now, it was still a decent approach of the director to suggest that she on her own was also battling with her inner struggles as well.

Amaan got in touch with Abdur Rehman Baba. Their conversations suggested that he left Daryabagh after the accident but Amaan found him out. The best part about their scenes was the usage of the native language, plus the actor playing the role of Abdur Rehman Baba has this flow to it that it feels nice listening to it, but it was sad that even his dialogues were few & repetitive. Farhat Ishtiyaq is known for writing some brilliant and meaningful dialogues but this definitely is not the case with Ye Dil Mera. Yes, the conversations of this drama couldn’t be too philosophical but it also didn’t deserve these kinds of plain & simple dialogues which are repetitive as well!

Meer Farooq continued to search for Ana but he couldn’t. Ali Baksh was also doing everything to find his “SAAHIB’s” daughter but he was failing miserably. It is now turning out to be a little unconvincing that none of them bothered replying back to Nargis Bua’s calls. They should’ve given her a chance thinking maybe she knows something or if Ana must’ve contacted her but they didn’t. Even if Nargis Bua hadn’t called them, the first person Ali Baksh or Meer Farooq should’ve called was Nargis Bua.

Ye Dil Mera Episode 29 Story Review - A Hit & A Miss

Nargis Bua & Detective Farhana started off their Mission Rescue Ana, but on the way to Daryabagh & after wasting a lot of kilometers, they discussed some details & finally, to much relief of the viewers Nargis Bua spilled the beans on how Meer Farooq killed Amaan’s family. It didn’t take Detective Farhana to figure out that Amaan had something against Meer Farooq even before Nargis Bua told her the truth because she ended up believing that Amaan was capable of harming Ana & he was doing all of this for a reason, but it is good that she now knows. Detective Farhana already was not much pleased with Meer Farooq & now she has all the more reason to despise him because she knows that he is a criminal. The rest of the episode was filled with flashbacks, which definitely could’ve been avoided.

The last few scenes of the episode were intense with Nilofer calling Meer Farooq out & telling him that she was going to do everything to expose him. Once again, some great performances there. Every step of the way, you feel for Nilofer because no wife deserves a psychopath like Meer Farooq Zaman. Amaan also has a plan & he ended up sharing it with Abdur Rehman. Now that he has spoken about him dying, I think this is the only plausible closure his character will get. He has spent his entire life suffering from PTSD & coming up with a plan of destroying Meer Farooq & after when he’s done, as much as I would like to see that happening, maybe it won’t be possible for Amaan to lead a normal life. The only ray of hope for his character happens to be the unconditional love for Ana that she may bring him out of his misery but after she will find out what her father has done in the past with Amaan’s family as well as her own mother, she herself will go into depression. Let’s see what happens.

Ye Dil Mera Should’ve Ended By Now

It is unfortunate that Ye Dil Mera still has not ended. Even if they wanted the drama to be long, 30 episodes were enough but it is kind of upsetting that there are still so many episodes left. The next one will uncover a few more details of the night when Nilofer tried to run away with Ana, those scenes will definitely be quite intense. Another week, another opportunity wasted for Ana to grow mentally, but it is interesting that despite her world turning upside down, her styling is on-point & she looks stunning. Detective Farhana continues to underperform & even when she found out such a shocking truth, her reaction was cold, maybe the temperatures of Daryabagh were already getting to her. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Ye Dil Mera.

  • Aaj hi dekhiye aa rahi hain aapki farmaish per DETECTIVE FARHANA
    jinhon nay Amreeeeka k aik aala institute say haal hi main degree li hai …..

  • Another amazing review! I absolutely concur. The pacing is a problem and the repetition honestly makes it all the more tiring. The show could have been crisper and the dialogues could use panache!

    For me, the highlight today was Amaan and Abdur Rahman Baba’s conversation. I honestly believed that Amaan could get out of this alive and based on one scene from the early teasers, I still hope that’s true but today’s monologue from Amaan has my hope dwindling. As much as I want him to live, his take on this is different. He has declared war and knows the stakes, he doesn’t just seem ready to die, he seems to look forward to it. That little nuance when he said he wishes to be buried in daryabaug and later when he said I could die but you take care of Aina, I freaked the hell out cause he believes that death is his solace and freedom. I honestly hope Aina tells him at some point that she still loves him otherwise this man is “Sar pe kafan baandh liya” types.

    All in all, this episode had not much new to offer. I really hope they start picking up the pieces cause the story has potential and the actors are brilliant. Unfortunately, the screenplay hasn’t given a bang for its buck. Can’t wait for the next!

    • Thank you so much Orion for sharing your thoughts, I enjoyed reading them. :) Yes, you analysis on Amaan’s mental state is apt. Indeed, it seems like he has given up on life because he knows after he is done with his revenge, there’s nothing left for him. Also because he knows how miserable Ana is & will be after he will get the closure. It is definitely Ana who can bring him out of this misery but she will be miserable herself. Let’s hope if there’s any redemption of Ana’s character, it will be this!

      • I agree! Aina’s character needs redemption. It’s like the writers haven’t thought of focusing on her character graph. All she does to prove her father’s innocence is sleep, dream, and walk in the garden. It’s not like proof will fall from the sky. Here’s hoping the last gig of the show does something for her character too.

        If Amaan dies, I will lose it though, for sure :p No matter how plausible that is for his character, that would push me over the edge!

  • The pace of this drama is very slow you are absolutely right it should’ve ended by now the makers are dragging it too much I didn’t found this drama interesting at all almost every episode has only one good scene and rest of the episode is boring I think this drama is overrated I’m just watching it because of your reviews your reviews are brilliant please I have a request when this drama ends than please review Zebaish please please please

    • Thank you so much Sami Akhtar for your kind words. Oh yes, I do intend to review Zebaish after Ye Dil Mera ends because probably it will be replacing this drama. It is upsetting that the drama which could’ve been so interesting has been treated this way with so many unnecessary number of episodes. They need to hurry up.

  • Thank you for the review. Some of FB were too long and detailed. I wish, I had read your tip before watching the show :P
    I think Ali Baksh and Mir Farooq have forgotten about Bau’s call since they have been been hit by multiple sides. The scene with Baba has set a dark context, rather than shooting in pleasant view, it would be better had director shot it early in the morning when it is still dark and not in the garden but rather in woods. It would have been more impactful.
    Do we really have to watch the entire 6 hours journey to Darybagh? I am annoyed by two ladies.
    Aman is such a well written and Ahad is played it brilliantly. If it he dies, I will be really sad about it.
    Instead of repeating multiple scene, it would be better if Anna would have been shown roaming around in the town looking for railway station and visiting her house again.

    • You’re most welcome. Ah, there’s so much that they could’ve done to make this drama better but it is sad that it has come down to this point where one episode is weaker than the other. Ahad has done justice to the character of Amaan but I guess it is obvious that a single person can not save the ship from drowning. Ana is comfortable in that cozy cottage, itna dud character hai abb wo kaisay itni mehnat kare aur sardi mai bahir jaye, isi liye she thinks its better to stay indoors & dream. ;)

    I don’t like this episode.
    I watched it at 2x speed.
    Ye sari cheezen ydm ko less impactful bna rhi hn.

  • They are dragging it like a soap serial. Not only wasting the viewers time but also minimized the thriller impact.
    They’ll repeat same dialogues and situations many times but will not show the important developments like how bua ji and detective FARHANA meat each other.
    How Amaan escaped from the hotel after giving threat to Mir Farooq .
    If this seriel was fast paced it could easily be a hit.
    But now it’s just become a miserable piece.

    • Yes, I so agree Erum. It is disappointing that they decided to miss out all the important scenes & situations which could’ve made the episodes & overall drama intense & detailed. When it comes to these minute details, they just leave it to the viewer’s imagination. It is a poorly thought-out execution which has taken away the thriller aspect of this drama.

  • Aman to baba:β€œChacha, ab aap aakey hamarey saath hamaarey ghar Mai rahein. Mai apnee bibi Key liye khaanaa banaa banaa key thak gayaa hoon”

    Driver heard the whole murder story

    Anna to all the viewers – my role in this drama is to see dreams. thats it. So stop complain8g 😊

  • Hey, Zahra. It’s been a long time since I’ve been here. I guess I got a hell lazy during the lockdown. But this OUTRAGEOUS episode definitely deserves every bit of criticism.
    There was absolutely no character development in any manner. We know Aina is having a hard time while revisiting her past, but what about her ‘begunahi ke saboot aikhate Karne ki’ duty?
    We know Amaan cannot or isn’t capable of hurting Aina. The conversation with Abdur Rehman was good but didn’t he an impact on the storyline.
    Then comes the flashbacks. Oh! The horror! I literally felt like smashing the TV screen then !

    But anyways u have got to admit, Detective Farhana Holmes and Bua Watson have officially won the award for the most annoying team ever!!🀣🀣

    • Thank you so much Ibrahim. Good to have you back, I am sure everyone is feeling the same way but good that these dramas are providing some entertainment, now look at Ye Dil Mera, this was supposed to be a serious thriller sort but we are finding our comic relief in it. :D

      Lol @ Bua Watson, their jori is perfect. At least they deserve the credit for doing what Ali Baksh & his SaaHIB couldn’t do. ;) Ana’s character is quite disappointing. Sajal Aly has acted well but this character has nothing to offer.

    • @ibraheem they have repeated “begunahi k saboot ikathey krna” zillion times, uf so irritating… atleast wordings hi change kr detay.. “jb tak agha jan ko begunah na sabit kr dun”, “jb tak ye prove kr du k unka koi qasoor nahi”

  • at least Anna is starting to remember maybe by next week she will come to the conclusion that Amaan is telling the truth, half of the episode was in repeated flashbacks but as much i did not like them, i think they were important to the story from everyone’s angle

  • Superb review Zahra! This episode, however, didn’t work for me! I felt the only substantial scenes were the last 5 minutes of the episode and the one that Amaan had with Abdurrehman baba!

    Turns out Nargis bua is more intelligent than Meer Farooq and Ali Bakhsh together, as they still couldn’t figure out that Amaan must have taken her to Daryabagh. Apparently, they’re just wasting time even after knowing Amaan’s real identity and his relation with them in the past. Farhana khala needs to up her game! She wasted a lot of time in Amreeka and now she’s doing the same in Daryabagh. There was no need to show the same scenes again during Nargis Bua and Farhana Khala’s conversation. They could’ve even muted the whole thing and shown it in fast forward. The viewers have seen it too many times and now want to see further, which they showed only for the last 5 minutes.

    It seems they’re still going to take few more episodes to wrap it all up. I wonder for how long Ana’s dreams are going to remain blurred. Showing it too soon would make it unconvincing but dragging to too much is like testing our patience. They should just reveal everything to Ana now.

    • Thank you so much Sheetal. Haha yes, Nargis Bua & even Farhana Khala seem to have beaten Ali Baksh & Meer Farooq in this quest because they figured out sooner where Amaan must’ve taken Ana. It is interesting that even after Amaan has introduced himself, Meer Farooq is not even thinking about Daryabagh being one of the places he must’ve taken Ana to because he clearly told him that they are in Pakistan & his short visit to him confirmed it.

      The flashback scenes were not only unnecessary but annoying too. This drama probably has 3 – 4 episodes more, which was so not necessary. If they had kept it to the point & short, this drama would’ve made such an impact.

  • Tbh this episode was kinda dragged but it also showed what happened to Nilofer as well. They are dragging the drama a bit now so hopefully it ends.

    whats up with Aina sleeping all the time? she still has to find the proof of her father’s innocence to throw on Aman’s face.

    very exited for the next ep! mostly for aman blackmailing meer farroq zaman!!!!!!!!!

  • in the OST they show a mini clip of aina entering her house in daryabagh and she finds a picture of her mother Nilofer. And there is also someone with her but doesnt show who. I think its Nargis Bua who comes with Aina to her house and then she will find out that this was her own house. And nargis Bua might be the one to tell Aina about her dreams and what they mean. Love for SAHAD!!!!

  • Awesome review!!! I loved Amaan n Abdur Rahman’s convo but I dont want Amaan to die
    Wse Ana ne Daryabagh me saboot ka koi plant lgaya h kya jiske ugne ka wait kr rhi h
    N whatever u said abt her styling being so on point ws really apt
    The performances in dis show r good(except for Farhana) bt d story is dragging nw..dey shud jst wrap it up
    PS: Thanx fr d pro tip. It really helped
