Ye Dil Mera Episode 31 Story Review – Anaaaaaaa

Ohkay so, this episode of Ye Dil Mera did not take the story forward, however it showed everything through Ana’s perspective & in the end, she finally found out that she had witnessed her mother’s murder herself but her father made it look like it was a dream. The way things unfolded in this episode were intense but somewhat slow, but I guess by this time, the viewers should get used to the fact that Ye Dil Mera is slow-paced.

Anaaaaaa

Amaan welcomed Farhana Khala & Nargis Bua with a smile on his face. He had no idea that Nargis Bua must’ve told everything to Detective Farhana who eventually started to act like one as the episode progressed. The conversation that Amaan & Nargis Bua had was emotional & heart-touching, indeed Amaan has all the reasons to question why he was put through so much trauma of losing his family because of a psychopath like Meer Farooq Zaman.

Nargis Bua sympathizes with Amaan but seeing her pattern & behavior in general, it shows that she holds her ‘namak halali’ closer to her heart more than anything else; be it her beloved Ana or even seeing what Amaan has gone through. Even in the previous episode, while telling Farhana the entire story, Nargis Bua reiterated that it was her ‘namak halali’ which didn’t allow her to break her silence, while I kept on waiting to hear her say that she wanted to stay in Meer Farooq’s house because she was concerned for Ana & probably knew that after Nilofer, she had to be there for the child. The problem with the execution of Ye Dil Mera has been that all these basic yet important angles of the story have been left for the viewers to imagine & assume, whereas the drama-makers themselves, be it the writer or the director have focused on nominal rather unnecessary details, such as showing how Farhana khala was blotting her face while listening to the gruesome details of her sister’s murder!

Anaaaaaa

Ana got to meet Farhana Khala but it was only until she saw Nargis Bua that made her question how she knew about Daryabagh? Might as well have asked the same question to her Amreeka returned Khala who was the last person to know that a place like Daryabagh even existed. Honestly speaking, I felt like holding Nargis Bua & shaking her to the core so that she actually confessed that Meer Farooq was a murderer. Even when Anaaaa continued to ask her, all Nargis Bua could do was nod her head that too stiffly. Kya namak halali hai, wah bhai!

Ye Dil Mera 2 2

After that, Ana decided she had to go to Summer house to find the missing pieces of puzzle. Honestly speaking, as much as the entire scenario was executed nicely, all I could think while watching the pictures casually lying around the house was that a meticulous person like Meer Farooq had allowed everything to remain like that? Even if it wasn’t for him, wouldn’t he have told Ali Baksh to wipe off all the traces of Nilofer’s existence so that no one could get to her murder’s mystery walking through these clues? Yes, they did suggest that after Nilofer was murdered, they all left Daryabagh, never to be returned again but Meer Farooq had enough people to do this for him. What about all those servants who were locally hired to take care of the household chores, even they didn’t clean it all up & left it to be like that for the next 2 decades?

Anaaaaaa

Anyways, Ana’s memories were finally rekindled, she saw the pictures of her mother, remembered all the times she had spent with her parents in the summer house, even recalled jumping from the window & then the path which led her to the train station. The conundrum has been solved, Ana herself was the witness to her mother’s murder. Honestly speaking, I felt like pulling Ali Baksh’s moustache when I saw him kill another innocent soul so mercilessly, that too in front of a child. He could’ve captured Nilofer, taken her to some place & then killed her. It is bizarre that he even killed her in front of all those people who were present at the railway station, without batting an eyelid. Itni akhir kiss baat ki ai hui thi? 

Anyhow, after so many years, Ana finally found all the answers to her questions, the dreams that she saw & the horrifying incident of seeing her mother getting shot in front of her eyes. This entire episode was only about Ana, she finding a way to the truth & then figuring out all the details. It was not about what she thought of Amaan, the possibility of her father being a murderer. It was nicely shown that for her, everything just stopped there & she was probably for the first time mourning the loss of her mother.

Anaaaaaaaa

Meer Farooq almost lost his senses. I totally feel this is not a punishment enough for him to just lose his senses & be miserable without even understanding what is happening to him & why. If that happens, Ye Dil Mera will be yet another drama which will have an unconvincing end because I surely expected better from Farhat Ishtiyaq. As a psychopath, he should continue to live in as much denial as he wants, with all the evidence against him which makes him pay the price & serve the time. Ali Baksh on the other hand will be handed over to the police for carrying out all the killings on Meer Farooq’s orders, but in reality, it is Meer Farooq who should go to jail, without losing his senses. I actually feel for Ali Baksh, poor soul will be all alone, the least he deserves is his Sahib’s company even in jail because he had no life other than being a loyal servant to his master. Saahibbbb!!!

So, this episode was interesting to watch but again was pretty slow. A few things that agitated me were the Amaan’s silence, he has an entire picture in his mind of what Anaaaa was feeling & going through, but he chose not to say anything to her. Yes, he felt for her & even knew that nothing he would say to Ana will make her forgive him but the least he could’ve done was answer the questions that over the time arose in her mind. Please don’t tell me that Detective Farhana travelled all the way from Amreeka to only come & boss around Nargis Bua & Abdur Rehman Baba, without even moving a muscle? Who actually appointed her as a detective or she just self-assigned it to her? Poor acting & poorer antics. Sajal Aly looked gorgeous in this episode & her acting was even better. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Ye Dil Mera.

Keep Supporting,
Cheers,
Zahra Mirza.

Apologies for the late review, I assumed they were not going to air it due to Eid programs but was surprised when Anaaaa popped up on my YouTube feed. Enjoy!

ps: Just in case you missed: Anaaaaaaaaa Anaaaaaa

    Anaaa’aa’aaa’aa

    Wese ek baat h acting waqai bht achi ki thi natty khala ne. Nailed it. Jisne cast lia h mn kehta hun drama ko chaar chaand lg gye.

  • Brilliant review this drama is turning out to be boring the only reason I’m watching it is because of your great reviews I think it is a remake of indian film Baazigar I want Aman and Farooq both to die in the end just like the ending of baazigar please review Zebaish when this drama ends. Have you heard the news that Khalil Ur Rehman and Humayun Saeed are working on Ertugrul type historical drama what do you think about it

    • Thank you so much Sami for reading the reviews. Yes, it does look like the drama will have that sort of ending but I feel killing the characters won’t serve the purpose. Amaan deserves some happiness & hope in his life. He deserves to experience a life without having to think about revenge all the time. Meer Farooq should also not die & in stead serve his time in jail.

      I will be reviewing Zebaish as it seems interesting. Yes, I heard about it, let’s see how they will execute a period drama, will be interesting to see.

  • This episode was a bit better. The only thing I hated was Farhana Khala acting. SHe really needs to get acting lessons cause she clearly aint know how to act at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Perfect review.. hilarious… annaaaaaa

    How come Meer Farooq reached to daryabagh? I don’t remember him tracing Amaan in previous episode or did I miss any detail :/

    • Thank you so much Tooba for reading the review. :) After finding out who Amaan was, just like Nargis bua could figure out where Amaan must have take Ana, Meer Farooq also figured it out on his own that Daryabagh must be the place of Amaan’s hiding.

  • BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT review 😂 😂
    Honestly, I though the exact same thing when she said Bua aap udhar jaa k dekhen Anaaa ko aur abdur rehman baba aap baahir jaa kay 😂
    Chalo bhai maan liya kay Meer Farooq ney ghar wesay hi chor diya jesay tha, Anaaa kay ball ki phook bhi waheen paray paray nikal gai, lekin Darya Baagh k railway station pey wo azeem aik phattay wala bench bilkul usi paint main usi jaga pay para hai itnay saal baad bhi, jahan Neelo baaji aina k saath aa k bethi theen 😂
    Aik aur baat ki samaj nai aai, Neelo’s room was not on the ground floor, she came out of the window with a rope, Anaaaa madam itni oonchi jaga sey aik chalaang maar kay bagher kisi kharaash kay itni pahaariyan charh kay station pe pohanch gain. #BhaiWaah

    • Ana stairs charh ke 1st floor par gayi thi, jahan unki bedrooms thi usi window se giri jis se neche blanket le kar ayi thi ammi ke sath

    • Thank you so much for reading the review PP. Lol @ ball ki phoonk nikal gai, honestly samajh nahi ai ke wo saray servants kahan gaye jo ghar ka khayal rakhte the ke jaisay hi dekha malik chalay gaye ghar ko waisay hi chorh diya. Nai, appne dekha nahi, Anaaaa thora sa langrai thi but phir us mai koi aur kuwwat aa gai thi jiss ne usay pahari raasta paar karwa diya tha. I wonder uski jump ki awaaz kisi ko kyu nahi ai as wo area waisay hi itna sunsaan sa tha, still no one heard her jumping & then running.

  • how can we miss your anaaaa, finally we got a good episode to watch even if it was a bit predictable & we got to see a lot of Ana too, the best scene is when she is feeling the ground tor her mother
    bua jee didn’t even notice the open window from which she fell from & the less said about khala jee the better,
    i won’t like it if Meer Farooq doesn’t go to jail
    thanks for the lovely review & it’s ok if it’s late, i only found the video just now

    • Thank you so much Shameem. Yes, this episode covered Ana’s perspective but good that she finally remembers everything. However, I hope in stead of blaming others for hiding the truth as shown in the preview, she directly asks Aghaaa Jaaaaaan about everything. Meer Farooq deserves to be punished by the law, not by losing his senses!

  • Was Waiting For It Plus want to inform you that In Imran Ashraf’s Mushk , Kubra Khan is replaced by Momal Sheikh! Yuckk! She lacks talent I have seen your review on Yaariyan. Hope so she improves! Furthermore Gohar Rasheed is also replaced by Dar si jati hai and Belapur ki dayan Actor Osama Tahir.
    Hope for the best

  • Was Waiting For It Plus want to inform you that In Imran Ashraf’s Mushk , Kubra Khan is replaced by Momal Sheikh! Yuckk! She lacks talent I have seen your review on Yaariyan. Hope so she improves! Furthermore Gohar Rasheed is also replaced by Dar si jati hai and Belapur ki dayan Actor Osama Tahir.
    Hope for the best! 🌟

    • Thank you Arishfa. Oh, the replacements don’t seem good to be honest. I didn’t review Yaariyan though. Not sure what made them change the cast because as far as I heard they had already started working on the project.

  • Someone needs to give Sajal Ali a freaking OSCAR! She nailed every scene in this episode. Phenomenal acting. I totally agree that this episode was really slow, but still better than the previous episodes. Great review. I also really don’t like Detective Farhana, why did the casting people even allow her in the drama. SHE CANNOT ACT! PERIOD! They should have gotten someone who at least knows how to act.

    Anyway, I was scrolling through youtube, and I came across a video that Farhat Ishtiaq uploaded, where she narrated a deleted scene from episode 30. In the scene, Amaan tells Abdur Rehman Baba to look after Ana, and he goes off someone. After this, Abdur Rehman Baba is washing dishes in the kitchen, and Ana goes in surprised to see him, and asks who he is, how he knows Amaan and his family, etc. Then she starts asking him about what happened in her childhood, and he tells her everything, to which she is extremely upset and emotional. And this links to the scene that was in the episode where we saw her going to her room and crying and calling for her mom.

    I can’t believe this director would delete such an important scene. You should watch the video. I might have missed some details. And this isn’t the only scene that was deleted this director even deleted other scenes in the other episodes. I think even the scene in episode 6 where Ana left her job was also deleted by this director. It doesn’t make any sense, the audience wants to enjoy the drama for what it is, not be confused that some scenes are missing and then have to figure it all out by themselves, and it also doesn’t make the flow of the drama flow smoothly. Again, great review as always.

    • Thank you so much Marium for sharing your thoughts & reading the review. :) Yes, I did come across that video which Farhat Ishtiyaq uploaded. Imagine how poorly this drama has been executed that the writer is walking an extra mile to fill in the blanks & uploading videos separately for things to make sense for the viewers. No wonder why the flow has always been an issue in Ye Dil Mera.

      This is what I have always said that the director has left a lot on the viewer’s imagination thinking they will figure out everything on their own. This is why the scene where Ana started asking Amaan about Nilo & Humera being friends did not make sense at all. Plus Amaan not saying anything in return is another issue I have with his character. I think they should learn to wrap the dramas up within 20 episodes, especially stories like these because the last thing they need is prolonging & unnecessary stretching. Thank you once again Mariam for appreciating the review, it means a lot. :)

    • no wonder that Sajal & Ahad have so many less scenes in most episodes & after all their hard work too, not fair on the writer

  • Great review Zahra! Sajal is just brilliant. Jitni bhi tareef kare kam hain, but then who doubted it? Unfortunately the supporting cast is so pathetic that it took away from this important episode not to mention the poor direction of the last few episodes. They ruined Meer Farooq s character already hope they do justice to Ana and Armaans character. The scene between Bua and Armaan was powerful. I really really hope Ahad will get some more roles where he can show his versatality, he’s a truly gifted actor.

    • Thank you so much Seher. :) Both Sajal & Ahad along with Adnan Siddique have been the saving grace of this drama. Unfortunately, the supporting actors who were performing well i-e Mira Sethi & Zarnish Khan are no longer a part of the story, therefore we’re left with the bunch who is finding it hard to perform. This drama deserved good character actors because of the nature of the script. Ahad & Sajal’s scenes are always very intense & brilliantly performed. The characters seem to have lost the plot just like the writer & the director.

  • I wouldn’t call it a pathetic review, as each person has their own perspective and opinion. However I do agree that the reviews are praised at first and then suddenly get strongly criticized for very small things that don’t make sense. What I don’t understand is that this drama is presenting a story from the character’s perspectives-the story is not presented for how we like it. Each character has a view and it is being shown progressively which equivalents to the story being taken forward or the blanks being filled in.
    Anaa’s mom’s death was important to be seen, it was not enough to just know she was killed by Ali Baksh. I am so baffled by how people have complaints about this drama. Then again I am not one of those who can sit through Kashf and other similar dramas that people rave about. I held back the last couple weeks from making any comment as I felt it’s pointless to say anything, but today I felt there are others who speak up too so I will too.

    Zahra has her own opinion, and we have our own. I just feel many people just agree to every review here without thinking their own opinion through and just following along. I do feel at times though that those of us that don’t agree with the given reviews, are left to feel like we enjoy/justify content that is below reviewit standards.

    • I have the same feelings about the reviews. Either it is all flowery and praising everything or it is all about making fun of everything. So many people were pointing out the flaws in the story some weeks ago and the reviewer was justifying everything as if she had written the drama and now look at her. The approach is wrong, immature I’d say.

      Many people dare not disagree because the reviewer cannot handle criticism. She can make fun of dramas actors and characters but she cannot handle one line of criticism by people. The double standards are appalling.

      • Hassan there are no double standards here. Over the years, I have faced a fair share of criticism too & have let it pass, so for you to say that it can’t be handled is a misjudgment. Disagreeing with the review & seeing drama with a different perspective is one thing, making personal attacks is another. The tone in the comment above is an example in itself where the criticism is not just restricted to the review but is directed personally at the reviewer. You don’t see any problems with the drama, you’re free to share it. Thanks!

        • Me too. She blocked me so many times. Now look at her pretending to be so patient. She has an ego bigger than her head.

          • Really? Aw you know me so well. I am humbled. sO MaNy tImEZz…please do let people know the reasons you were blocked for. Personal attacks & profanity were never tolerated on Reviewit. It is very easy to play a victim & yet again, talking about ego being bigger than head – making a personal remark & then playing a victim. Old story bro!

      • I agree with how the approach isn’t handled well. I’ll leave it at that since I just didn’t a super long post about all this.

        • I just came back to check this thread after leaving that comment. All I have to say is that the reviewer need not get herself involved in these discussions. They get to say what they want to in reviews. If someone disagrees they should respectfully accept. Unfortunately there are egos involved, it is not just about a drama or review. That is so obvious. You would think that someone with so much experience of writing on a public forum would have more grace. Of course writers and actors share reviews praising them just like the reviewer herself who is welcoming of any praise and shuns any criticism any way she can. Asking people why they are still visiting the website after being banned indeed is pathetic. It is a public forum anyone can comment. What a shame.
          Regards to Sunshine. You have earned my respect.
          Take Care
          Bye

          • I asked the readers to share the reasons why they were blocked Hassan Ali, because I have seen a lot of commenters like those claiming to get blocked playing the victim card.

            Good that you guys got to pour your heart out. Hope all of you are feeling lighter! ✌

    • Thank you Sunrise for sharing your perspective in a respectful manner. It is unfortunate that you have felt left-out but allow me to explain that it has never been intentional.

      Ye Dil Mera has two categories of viewers; first one of those who are just disappointed because they knew the potential this drama had but the execution ruined it. The second one of those who are enjoying it ignoring the loopholes & directional flaws. Either way, it is perfectly fine to watch & discuss however one likes it.

      In the review, it has been mentioned that showing Nilofer’s death that too from Ana’s perspective was important. It is just the unnecessary details which have taken away the impact this drama deserved to make. Calling the drama-makers out on these issues isn’t wrong.

      • I am in no way trying to start a negativity stream here, I’m just stating my perspective- a long perspective that isn’t only going to be on Yeh Dil Mera.
        “Ye Dil Mera has two categories of viewers; first one of those who are just disappointed because they knew the potential this drama had but the execution ruined it. The second one of those who are enjoying it ignoring the loopholes & directional flaws. Either way, it is perfectly fine to watch & discuss however one likes it”
        So taking the opportunity to discuss this I start with why do these two categories exist? Does that seem appropriate because each person has their own opinion so why are they placed in categories? The way these categories are set make it sound like category one is simply innocent, “who are just disappointed because they knew the potential the drama had”. This sounds like a group that is projected as ‘right’ whereas category two, “those who are enjoying it ignoring the loopholes & directional flaws” seem careless and foolish? So category ones are the smart ones who “KNEW” and category two is “IGNORING…FLAWS”. There’s bias right there in the judgement of viewer’s opinions. Moving on from that to the “apparent execution of the drama that ruined the potential.” I’m just wondering what execution that is that I am not having issues with, what are the directional flaws and loopholes? Every drama has mistakes, flaws, and continuation errors. It’s sometimes okay to let go the change of a sweater, and keeping focus on the story, acting and direction. Shooting takes a lot and sometimes things can’t be corrected so to start saying a drama is dragging and has poor direction because of a sweater or whatever else is too critical in my eyes. What are the unnecessary details that we had to see that caused the drama to lose its impact, what details didn’t add but took us away from the story?
        You are a good detailed reviewer but your opinion is stated as a matter-of-fact which many people don’t agree with. Even the actress in Yeh Dil Mera that plays Farhana Khala is a new actress- give her a break. Some people in real life do talk and act like that- they shouldn’t be made fun of. To be honest I like her cause she’s normal. Each writer composes a story and presents it with a team and to completely tear down their work claiming it to be lame is insulting. Where’s the positive constructive criticism?Even actors/directors read these and repost the positives on Instagram which should also have reviewers realize pointing out their negatives personally can come across hurtful for them (ex. comments on Bilal Abbas’s acting In the last episode review of Balaa and the following is quite personal too. “I think Fahad Mustafa should realize that apart from distributing bikes & doing Thakki Tikki Tha, he has more responsibilities as a producer & as someone who has a position in the industry to produce better dramas & not craps like these. Zanjabeel Asim Shah should take a break & stop spewing so much of negativity because it eventually comes to bite you back as well. I know it was just a drama but whatever she was trying to show didn’t really make it to our TV screens & just got lost like a lice in Nigar’s wig.“ How is this appropriate?
        From my observation any drama that has a strong popular cast is usually doomed at some point in reviews here. I noticed that with Aangan, Cheekh, Balaa, Ehd e Wafa, Ishq-Zehe Naseeb, Mann Mayal (yes I said Mann Mayal) etc to name a few. People have high expectations and if things aren’t immediately revealed or of their approval the drama is suddenly failing. The only slight exception I saw was in Ehd-e-Wafa where it was written off as boring after like five episodes since it was showing more military school or not showing the story as certain viewers wanted it presented to them. By the last fifteen episodes it was raving again but before that it got the criticism for another stellar cast dud drama like Aangan. Give a drama a chance without judging it in five episodes- you’ve only seen a sixth of it by then. It’s understood now that all dramas end around thirty episodes so why is this discussed in each drama’s episode that it’s being prolonged? It’s said that it’s going to be 30 or 33 episodes so either the story will go in many twists and turns or it will take its time with thinking recap scenes etc. It feels like people don’t have patience, they just want quick answers and an end. Judging an entire concept of a drama like Ishq Zahe Naseeb over a few episodes is harsh. The drama did get a little confusing and stretched but we saw that coming when they said it was going to be another ten episodes. It was still a great, unique and roller coaster drama with superb performances with some flaws.
        Again each person has their own perspective and I agree some dramas are stretched and are flawed- not perfect. I guess I’m just tired of seeing the constant negative criticism on these dramas vs those that get dropped like Ishqia. Ishqia was dropped cause it wasn’t enough to hold interest to continue to be reviewed whereas Yeh Dil Mera still is. Therefore it gets the harsher criticism since it is left to be reviewed.
        This is just something I’ve been observing on for months in other drama reviews as well. This is an open platform for people to appropriately share their opinions and to respond to others views, but there’s a strong judgment tone that many see that others may not. Everyone should give their reviews constructively and those that cannot shouldn’t give sarcastic remarks back. Be professional and realize just as actors/dramas/story writers are putting themselves out there and receive feedback the same goes for reviewers. You are putting yourself out there to hear different views about what you have presented. Some reactions that aren’t in your favor and may not be noted politely should still be handled appropriately rather than sarcastically (exception of extreme reactions and language). I know this got super long and that was not the intention but for months a lot was being held back and I decided to share it all out. Sorry in advance if anyone was offended.

        • The categories that I mentioned were not only specific to Ye Dil Mera. Every single drama has two sorts of viewers & there was no bias there when I spoke about the two categories. It was just to mention that every single person is free to watch, enjoy, like or dislike the drama as they please & are also free to discuss it the way they like.

          The scenario that you’re presenting about giving out the final verdict means that we should watch the entire drama & then wait for the last episode to review it. Viewing & reviewing the drama is a different story. The reviewers take the drama episode by episode, speak about all the aspects, good or bad. This is the reason that all the dramas that you have mentioned above got fair share of praises & appreciation for the good episodes & the fair share of criticism for the not so good ones. You have enjoyed all the dramas that did not get good reviews from start to finish, it goes to show that just like you have the right to form your opinion, the reviewers too enjoy the same right.

          About the Reviewit reviews being shared or not, that is totally upto the people related to the drama to decide. It is obvious they are only going to share the ones with praises because that’s how everything works. We have build a relationship with the viewers over the years because of calling spade a spade. Please look back at the initial reviews of Ye Dil Mera, when the continuity issues were not highlighted, the readers pointed that out, which means I was not influencing them & they were watching & forming their own opinion. Just like you said, every drama has flaws, this is what we point out & fully praise when the flaws are too nominal to be ignored.

          Judging Ishq Zahe Naseeb over a few episodes is harsh, I will once again tell you to skim through the titles of all the reviews that the drama got, it was probably the last few episodes which were heavily criticized & the rest were appreciated. Anyways, I know you have made up your mind & nothing that I will say will make you look the other side of the picture. I will once again thank you for keeping your viewpoint respectful & civil.

    • Also, please don’t say that the readers here comment without having their own opinion. I will respectfully disagree & won’t allow you to generalize the Reviewit readers like that. All the readers here are very intelligent & know how to voice their opinions, even if they may or may not feel the same way as I do about any drama.

      • I didn’t generalize anyone’s intelligence. I said nothing of the sort, I said there’s a tendency that majority of readers -not all- seem to just praise the review/reviewer vs giving their straight opinion. There are those that do though. I will never belittle anyone but what you did with Sarah Haider saying “achaa baaji” that was belittling her opinion. You guys literally don’t see how you respond to some people. Others chimed in that your response was funny- it was not. How do you expect people to open up when we can see this.

        • It is how many readers like to start a conversation by talking about the review, exactly how at the end of the review, they are encouraged to share their opinions. This is how discussions happen, so not sure what the issue is about that?

          Also, for someone to start a comment with the word ‘pathetic’, how am I supposed to respond? This was my way of not indulging in any argument with her, if you find it belittling, that’s your call. The people here themselves set the tone for the kind of reply they get. Be civil even if you want to disagree, it will always be taken that way. The commenter Sarah Haider herself didn’t like the episode & found it to be pathetic, but when I pointed out the flaws which are being noticed by majority of the viewers, she still calls the review ‘pathetic’ too! Interesting!!!

          • What about all the dramas you criticized and called pathetic. You said so many mean things about the writer of balaa when you reviewed it. Is she not human? In the comments section of balaa and so many more dramas writers and directors were made fun of. Why can no one make fun of you the same way. The word pathetic triggered you, so what if she thinks your review is pathetic she has a right to say it. Or if this is wrong approach then the reviewer like you should not make fun of any actor writer and director. Be careful how you talk about them next time because they are also humans.

          • I request everyone here supporting her to read her last episode review of balaa. What she said about writer and bilal abbas thook. Then she says is se pehle ke I start giving it Mujhe Khuda Pe Yakeen Hei & Aahista Aahista treatment, I will end this review. What it means? she can give any kind of treatment to dramas written by real people with feelings. Those actors she said so much crap about are also humans. Talking about Bilal abbas thook is not personal? Pathetic is a small word compared to that she has said in her reviews to make people laugh.

          • Then she says is se pehle ke I start giving it Mujhe Khuda Pe Yakeen Hei & Aahista Aahista treatment, I will end this review. What it means? – It means that before all the serious scenarios start looking amusing to me. Talking about actor’s acting skills & performances is different than making personal remarks at them. Understand the difference please!

          • I am new here. I read those reviews after reading the comments here and I am disgusted. What is funny about making personal attacks on actors. If she has guts she should also include her pictures in the review so we can comment on her hairstyle and thook. She hides herself. Could be that it is a guy with a fake name. We don’t know. Whoever she is she is mean. This person’s comment is decent compared to the reviews of balaa. How has she been writing for so long? Shocked at it.

          • New here yet making an assumption based on 1 review or the comments of those who have a problem with me?

            I have never made a remark about face/features/weight/height/color/complexion of ANY actor ever in my reviews. I have strictly spoken about the acting skills & the good/bad makeup of the actors. Believe it or not, that’s your call but I will NOT allow you to twist my words or put words in my mouth. I know what I have & I haven’t said. Wanting to see my picture only to judge the way I look? Lol…wow….!!! 👏👏👏

          • No, the word did not trigger me at all. I failed to understand that when the commenter herself found the episode pathetic, why was she infuriated at the fact that I pointed out the issues that majority of the viewers can see & have been talking about throughout the drama. I infact liked Ye Dil Mera in the initial stages but then again I was being called out for not talking about the mistakes. This episode was important in regards to the storytelling but the commenter found it to be pathetic, so?

          • Just read her review of balaa’s last episode. After reading the bit about bilal’s “thook”, I was thoroughly disgusted and all I could think of was “what a bitch”

          • Now I see you were so inspired by that drama that could not tolerate any criticism against it, hence the name & the language. Please continue to abuse, you’re only showing your mentality. Unfortunate that readers like you turn every single platform into FB/YT/Insta!

            Calling me a bitch…lol…I don’t know what to say!

        • Sunrise I applaud you for speaking up. It takes courage to do so in a place where telling readers off is considered fun!!! I have witnessed it so many times but never dared to say anything otherwise you get blocked or your comments are deleted. Old habits die hard. Much respect for you.

        • She is telling you what you should and should not be saying. ROFL. You can never convince a fool. Good going sister. Your points are valid. She will never accept her mistakes.

    • we do have a mind of our own, you know, & we know what bugs us & what doesn’t bug us

  • Drama is slow paced
    Director ahsan talish apnay har aik dramay ko dragg karta hai like alif allah aur insan. Start main dramay ko acha execute karta hai. Phir baad main usko samaj nahi aata k story k saath kiya kiyaaa Jaye.. Mujay to ye dar hai k is k bi alif allah aur insaan ki tarha 40+ episodes na ho

    • Nai nai fikar na karain, is baar shuker hai 40 episodes nahi honge, is drama ke bas 2 aur episodes reh gaye hain. Waqay hi, Ahsan Talish drama ko chewing-gum bana dete hain.

  • Dramas like these are the reason our industry will never grow to make scripts Like Ertugrul. I mean they completely destroyed a good thriller with unnecessary drag and repititive dialogues just to earn few extra pennies.

    • Absolutely. Not sure why they can not end a drama decently within 20 episodes. The initial episodes of every drama turn out to be so nicely done but as the story progresses, in stead of getting more intense, it is stuffed up.

  • Nazreen “ Detective Farhana “ k baad ab paish e khidmat hai…

    “COMMANDO ANAAAAAAA” 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    Lagta hai Amreeeeka wali khala sair kar kar k itni thak gai hain k un k goday gitay dard Karnay lagay hain isliye unhon nay sirf order dena munasib samjha ……

    Buhut hi nice review hamesha ki tarah …..

    • LOL @ goday gitay. Haan waisay ye baat to hai, Amreeka se atay hue Sukkhur mai halt bhi to liya tha phir Daryabagh atay atay thakkan aur barh gai hogi. Thank you so much AKB. :) Commando Ana, nice name! ;)

  • Hello Zahra, was waiting for your review. Lol @Annaaaa, totally what the episode was about!! Its so sad that such a good drama and a powerful script is destroyed for the sake of prolonging it. When you feel the might and persona of each character, thats when the drama feels real. But when each character starts getting lousy and irrational, thats when it no more feels real, just a made up story. I remember how just few weeks before, Meer Farooq killing his second wife sent shivers down my spine. It actually made me feel how cold and yet poweful of a person he was. And now, it no more feels like the same poweful cunning person, just a lousy character reaching a stupid destined end. Similarly for Anaa, Amaan and Bua. All acting irrationally. Bua being so namak halal that she totally chooses not to respond to Anaa (which is very difficult to believe considering the bond she had with Nilo) and Amaan bringing Anaa all the way to Daryabagh only to not answer her questionsband let her stay in perpetual confusion. Moreover, it was unrealistic how they showed Anaa recalling her journey with her mother after jumping from the window in BROAD DAYLIGHT when the actual memories were from the dark night. I mean i was watching when they showed the tree when Anaa was near it in present day versus what she remembered of the tree in the night time. I couldnt believe it was the same place. If you hve memories from childhood, you can only connect them when the environment is absolutely same. Just like psychologists say that if you have exam in the same room in the same seat where you sat during the class lecture, you are more likely to recall what you learned in the lecture. So just how Anaa was connecting everything felt very very unreal. Moreover in the next episode promo they showed Anaa standing on the window and seeing the scene of her father throwing the body of her mother in the river. How on earth can she see that when she was asleep at that time. Kia ilhaam honay lag gaye hain achanak se Anaa ko daryabagh aakar?

    Suffice to say the play has totally lost its charm for me, it no more feels real and I’m only watching it for closure now without taking any scene ot any character seriously. Just like Alif Allah aur insaan.

    • Thank you so much Javeria. I absolutely agree, this has been the issue with our drama-makers, they start the story at a such a high but as the drama progresses, in stead of making it stronger, they start treating everything as an afterthought, hence the criticism which they then start getting.

      All the characters had such a strong personality & their psychological issues were highlighted in such a convincing manner but now everything seems to be wrapping up miraculously. Amaan’s way of dealing with Ana has been ridiculous. Bringing her to Daryabagh & then not uttering a single word to bring her out of misery is cruel.

      I am sure everyone is watching this drama to see the closure & the end but if it so happens to be the typical one with Meer Farooq either getting killed or losing sanity, it won’t be interesting at all. Honestly speaking, I had the same concerns about Ana recalling her mother’s burial? Nargis Bua wouldn’t have let the child see that when Ali Baksh handed Ana over to her after bringing them back from the railway station. I decided not to say anything before I see the episode but yes, at this point it does not make sense.

  • Very rude, but I think its considered to be something “very cool” these days…
    The flaws will be pointed out when they start appearing.
    What you suggest is to start critisizing the dish even before tasting it 😄

    • Absolutely. Everyone knows by now that our drama-makers execute initial 10-12 episodes brilliantly & then lose the plot. If I point out the flaws, they say I am being critical & harsh. When I let go, it is labelled as I am being overly appreciative. You just can’t win, lol!

      The writer herself uploaded a video of a deleted scene from the previous episode, which was actually pivotal for everything to make sense & still, pointing out the flaws or plot-holes is wrong? *smh*

        • Everyone actually seems to be disappointed at the way the drama has been executed because everyone saw the potential it had. Seems like talking about the poor execution is wrong!

  • I think the review does justice to the episode. The episode indeed showed us the story further but in a slow paced manner. Most of it the viewers had already guessed and it remained only to be seen on the screen. Anaa had to literally go inside each room, check each and every thing on her own and only then she could get her memory back. I wish they had shown it all in a fast forward. Most part could have easily been edited, like Anaa’s slow walk through the corridor, the ball, the fallen photo frames, etc etc She jumped off the same window without getting hurt, from where her mom couldn’t jump off to save their lives. Anyway, all that detective Farhana khala did was to send Nargis bua and Abdur rehman baba here and there to check for Anaa. Even there, she sent them outside to check on her, without first checking inside the house herself. What a lazy khala, doesn’t want to move from her place! All she kept doing was “Anaa Anaa Anaa Anaa”.

    I think Amaan didn’t accompany them to the house as he will be confronting Anaa at the train station. It was really cruel to show Ali Bakhsh shoot Nilofer in front of a 5 year old child. They could’ve shown him kill her somewhere else where Anaa couldn’t see the actual shooting but only deduce that it was Ali Bakhsh who killed her mother. Now, finally, Anaa has got all the saboot to marofy on Amaan’s muh. Anyway, next episode seems to be the last one.

    P.S. – Many of the points you mentioned in this review, are the exactly same ones that I mentioned in my comment on your review for the previous episode. Eg. not clearing the things/ saboot from the house and Nargis Bua’s namak halali. But I guess you didn’t read those comments due to Eid.

    • Thank you so much Sheetal for reading the reviews & for contributing to the discussions consistently, it means a lot. :) Yes, this is all there was left to be seen, so they showed it through Ana’s perspective. The director has taken his sweet time in showing the story & the events through everyone’s perspective but it has compromised on the pace a lot. Yes, as much as this episode was executed nicely, I wanted things to speed up.

      What Ali Baksh did is unforgivable, killing Nilofer in front of Ana. This is what I feel too, he could’ve taken her somewhere else but at least not shoot her in front of Ana, but it is good that she has finally solved the conundrum herself without anyone interpreting it for her because she then wouldn’t have trusted anyone with this accusation against her father. Yes, I have read all the comments but could not reply to each one of them, these thoughts just crossed my mind & I am sure all the viewers are feeling the same way about the plot holes. :) Thank you once again for reading & commenting. :)

  • Sorry for being off topic but yaar someone from authorities plz keep a check on lameeee posts being made at the site!! Reviewit ka ye wo standard to nahi hai bilkul bhi jo 5 yrs pehle tha! Even 7 yrs pehle. Huma Khan rangay hatho pakri gai. Neelum munirs seductive poses, adakaraon ki lambi palkain, aiman ka Bhai pakra gaya, ertugrul ke quotes and so on… Plz prefer quality over quantity. I understand it’s Corona and all but us see pehle bhi deteriorate hone lag gai thi. Actresses ke behtreen looks. Top dresses and what not. Kahan gae quality writers like kanwal javed kanwal Murtaza Maryam mehdi areeba mohsin. #nostalgia

    • It used to be one of my favorite websites and I’d happily come back for more . Kia ban gai hai. Uper see latest happenings ke comment section bhi band. Criticism pe phir kuch improvement ati thi ab to wo bhi nahi . </3

    • Thank you for your feedback LG. Reviewit caters to a wide variety of readers & the posts are made keeping the interest of the audience in mind. :) Thank you for your appreciation though.

    • So true… but i really don’t care about those posts, what i don’t understand is when the admin allows for so many other posts, why can’t he allow for more than two reviews… yeh toh zyadati hai bhai!

  • 😂.
    Review is nice. It has become very common for Drama makers to give fast paced first 15 episodes to catch viewers attention and then they start moving at a turtle’s pace.
    This episode was showing every thing through Ana’s perspective but it was obviously Sg low. There is nothing forward in last few episodes and too much repetition. Farhana Khala’s character is too irritating, she has such a poor acting and superficial rather funny Expressions.

    • Thank you so much Tooba for reading & commenting. :) Yes, this is the pattern that our drama makers follow – first 10-12 episode are intense & then the dragging starts. However we rarely get dramas like Khaas which start slow but end on such stronger notes.

      This episode could’ve been merged with the previous one & wouldn’t have compromised on anything. The acting of Sajal would’ve still made an impact & saved the day. Farhana khala…abb kya kahain inke baray mai? Jitna kahain kam hai! 😅
