Ye Dil Mera Episode 32 Story Review – Award-winning Performance of Sajal Aly

Ohkay so, this episode of Ye Dil Mera belonged to Sajal Aly. Pakistani drama industry is filled with immensely talented actors but it is definitely a rarity where the audience are spellbound with such phenomenal performances that sends shivers down their spine – Sajal Aly in this episode did exactly that. While watching those few particular scenes where Ana recalled everything & then confronted her father, it was impossible to look away from the screen even for a second. Sajal Aly should take a bow for this award-winning performance in this episode of Ye Dil Mera tonight!

This Episode Belonged To Sajal Aly

After ignoring the character of Ana for so long, it was definitely a good decision by the writer & the director to dedicate these two episodes to her. She was the one whose life depended on unveiling the truth, therefore she required the coverage & the time she got. What added more to it was the stellar performance given by Sajal Aly for sure. In the preview last week, when I came across the scene of Ana happening to see her mother’s burial, I was actually unsure of how they were going to make it convincing but now everything did make sense. When Ali Baksh did not even bother taking Nilofer away from Ana to shoot her, it made complete sense that due to haste none of them bothered looking around whether Ana or anyone for that matter was looking at them or not. Ana was an eye-witness of everything & now in the similar setting without any heavy dosage of medication, it was very easy for her to recall everything from the past, however the course of which was definitely difficult for her, due to her living through those moments again!

Ye Dil Mera Episode 32 Story Review - Award-winning Performance of Sajal Aly

The scene where Ana actually puts her hand in the grave to pick up on the bangle gave me chills. No child in this world deserves to go through this & considering Ana remembered how loving her mother was, it was the worst thing that happened to her as Nilofer’s daughter. I am glad that throughout this entire episode, Sajal Aly’s performance was so strong that it overshadowed rather filtered all the filler characters as well as their weak performances & dialogues. I will however definitely say that Nargis Bua & Farhana yet again proved to be useless characters in this equation. When Ana came back from the train station & asked Nargis Bua a basic question such as who ordered Ali Baksh to shoot Nilofer, Farhana jumped in & tried to make it sound like Ana was being irrational asking about it? The girl has been through so much & the least you can do is at least bring her out of her misery. I honestly feel this was Nargis Bua’s chance of redemption but she wasted it. Yes, may be the drama-makers wanted Ana to hear it all from her father but seeing other characters not do their part to help Ana in some way was definitely uncalled for. I expected Nargis Bua or even Farhana after finding the truth to say something at least because they both got a lot of screen time previously, so it was important for them to say something to establish their value in this entire situation.

Ye Dil Mera Episode 32 Story Review - Award-winning Performance of Sajal Aly

The moment Amaan told Meer Farooq that Ana was in Summer House, he knew exactly what was going to happen – it showed him that Ana by now must’ve recollected all the memories & now was the time for him to answer her questions. Meer Farooq Zaman knew this was the time of his undoing & he won’t be able to dodge it. The entire scene with everyone surrounding Nilofer’s grave & Ana coercing her father to tell the truth was brilliant – probably one of the most powerful scenes of this entire drama. I felt relieved when Ana finally found out the truth & Meer Farooq confessed everything. She was right, her entire life has been a lie & the one feeding her those lies was none other than her father that she loved so much. Amaan knew his nightmare was over & now everything relied on Ana!

The Best Episode of Ye Dil Mera

This episode was definitely the best episode of Ye Dil Mera. The preview of the next episode suggested the new beginning as well the closure Amaan & even Ana will get from their past. It seems the drama makers are going to recreate the same love-confession scene similar to the last episode of Yakeen Ka Safar & I can foresee Sajal & Ahad’s fans being in for a treat – I am looking forward to that particular scene too because I totally believe they both deserve love & happiness. I do hope they don’t just give hints about what actually happened with Meer Farooq Zaman & in fact show him paying the definitive price for all the crimes that he has committed – same goes for Ali Baksh too.

It wouldn’t be an episode of Ye Dil Mera without some of the glitches & poorly conceived scenarios – first one being Meer Farooq asking Ali Baksh ‘kisi ko shaq to nahi hua’, while the boy shot Nilofer at the train station with minimum of 20 people around who witnessed it. Having lived for 6 years in Murree myself, I know how fast the news travels in such small towns, lol. Also, Amaan always drove around Darya Bagh in his 4WD, but now when he was about to go see Ana, he had a sedan? Not sure when his car changed.

Anyhow, Sajal Aly definitely deserves an award for this performance. At one point she made me say that because of this performance & display of acting skills, Sajal ne is drama ke sab directional gunnah maaf karwa diye. Well done Sajal Aly & also Adnan Siddique for portraying the helplessness of a father who loved his daughter with all his heart but knew his time was over & the facade he carried all these years had fallen off. The sass of Amaanullah even when he was hit by Meer Farooq Zaman is worth appreciation, Ahad Raza Mir has stayed true to the essence of this character throughout the drama. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Ye Dil Mera.

Keep Supporting,

  • Great Review Zahra you are such a big hearted person how do you manage to ignore the bad comments other reviewers when they get bad comments they give bad replies but you don’t how do you have so much patience? The perfomance of sajal is the best perfomance by an actress but overall I think the best performance is Humayun Saeed’s perfomance in Meray Paas Tum Ho. Do you agree?

  • As always perfect analysis Zahra!!
    Sajal was beyond phenomenal, Adan Siddiqui was brilliant.
    Bua and Farhana Khala let Ana ago once again after she came home aur phir yaad aaya k ‘usko to akelay nai chorna tha’ and then detective khala said ‘Bua g Ana kahan chali gai??’
    I really really want to know who is responsible for casting Natasha as Farhana. She was so bad in the confrontation scene.
    Also, why isn’t anyone telling Noor about Sahira. She doesn’t know about Agha jan’s 2nd marriage. Even in the confrontation scene she said ‘aap ney 4 logon ka qatal kar diya’.
    I must say that Farhana Khala’s character was so un-needed. If you remove her from the equation, it doesn’t affect the story in anyway. What was the point of her character? Her husband and kids must be so relieved that she is gone, because nobody from her family even cared to contact her.
    As much as I am excited about the last episode, I think it’s going to be a boring slow paced episode. I really hope that I am wrong.

    • Thank you so much PP. Absolutely, Sajal was phenomenal & Adnan Siddique supported her in the best way possible. Now that the drama’s about to end, I totally agree that there was no need for Farhana khala’s character, especially when she had nothing to offer. Her dialogues have been poorly written too. When she cried out loud ‘nilo baji ka kara’, it made me wonder when did she see it because she was in the USA all this while till Nilo died? Oh yes, Ana also needs to know about Sahira though, let’s see if Amaan tells her or not?

  • O what an amazing episode it was.
    The moment we were waiting for came tonight. Sajal truly gave us chills. I mean kya awla performance de di h bndi ne. Bhaee kmaal kr dia.
    Bua and khala useless characters.

    Brilliant review.

  • Perfect review. I agree with all the points as always.

    Bua jee ki candles.. mustakil unkay pass theen and yehi kaam tha Inka. :/

  • Good review Zahra, totally agreed on the spectacular performance by Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui. Their performance made this episode intense and more real, otherwise the flaws in the direction remain very evident. I dont really think Natasha gave a bad performance, you dont actually feel her unreal. Its rather her character that has been so stupidly sketched by the writer. The problem with this play is that it is not a good thriller, something that it tried to sell on to the viewers ever since the teasers came out. The entire drama just focused on Ana recalling her mothers entire murder scenario herself, which is why their were so many flaws embedded into this play. In a good thriller, their are clues every step of the way with every character leading to it or revealing a part of it. In this play that was entirely left to the 31st and 32nd episode so the entire play from 23rd episode oneards was kind of useless. This is why Natty khala and Buas character became useless because the writer just wanted Ana to recall everything. This is why Amaan acted stupidly ever since coming to Daryabagh. This is exactly why we were shown the rather irrational ‘main daryabagh main begunahi k saboot dhund kar mun par marungi’ nonsense. This is why they ended up showing Ali bakhsh totally naively murdering Anas mother in front of her when no one in their sane mind would do that. This is why they made this stupid stance that Ana did not see any single instance of her mothers murder when she was brought back from Daryabagh. If she had no control on her dreams, she would have surely seen the murder scene in her dreams recurringly bcz it happened in front of her eyes. I mean just for this entire happening of these last two episodes, they ended up making every other character useless and common sense gone to waste. Moreover, the perfect makeup and blowdried hair of Ana and natty khaala in this episode with no electricity is again a mystery. I couldnt help not noticing it, despite the brilliant performance :p I mean kyun bhai, thora tu natural kardo!!!

    • Thank you so much Javeria for reading the review & sharing your insights. Absolutely, this is exactly what made the story & the overall drama lose its charm because they kept on focusing on the scenarios, characters & situations that did not contribute to the story much. Nargis Bua & Farhana Khala got way more screen time than they deserved & that too when in the end, they weren’t going to help Ana in any way. This is what the main issue with Ye Dil Mera has been, this drama needed to the point execution but Hum TV being Hum TV decided to drag it. You’re right, everything boiled down to this moment that the viewers now witnessed but oh boy the route they took to bring us here, similar to the winding roads of Daryabagh! :)

      • Agree! Ana got hints of the train station in her dreams quite often but still she didn’t even once thought of going to the train station near by…..just in case….May be Hum needed time to prep their next drama and I think it is going to be Mohabbat Tujhe Alvida….

  • It was indeed a good episode. Sajal is brilliant. Her voice modulation was on point in my view. Had they not added those annoying scenes in previous episodes, this show would have remained on high node throughout.
    Yes, we will have YKS vibes in next episode. I also had one in last episode when Ana ran out of Aman’s house and he chased her in his car.

    • Yes absolutely, Sajal was brilliant. She portrayed how Ana was trying to wrap her head around the fact that her life has been a lie & the one who made it like that was no one else but her father. The disgust, the disbelief, the annoyance, the anger, the pain, everything was portrayed perfectly by Sajal.

  • Well, I do not read reviews but somehow was intrigued to read yours as I am following this serial and was in tears after watching today’s episode.
    So, brilliant analysis Zahra.
    I am thoroughly impressed by your review.

  • Great review. The epic moment was Nargis Bua holding the candlestick throughout the whole dramatic situation. Such a poorly executed drama.

  • Great review zahra … love it!
    Aman also used this black car when he came back from Islamabad after that confrontation scene with MF if u remember …. so I guess he has two cars =D

  • lovely review i felt like skipping bua aur khala’s scenes but couldn’t because i didn’t want to miss anything, trust Meer Farooq to choose the spot right outside Anna’s bedroom but at least he is still sane
    pls don’t mention the about what is going to happen in the next episode because it spoils everything, esp if it’s the final episode

  • We have yet to see if Aina finds out about her father’s second marriage or not (…not sure if it’s relevant anymore though?) because she said “chaar qatal” when in fact Meer Farooq has committed five murders including Sahira.

    • Chaar qatal toh family mein. Khandaan ke bahar toh na jaane kitne kiye honge. (Hint:Remember some business tycoon who was murdered in Malaysia…)

  • Sajal Aly is just phenomenal! She deserves all the praises she is getting more. One of the finest actors I have ever seen. This is one of her finest works and I think after every drama she has been in I say that. She nails all of her characters. I got goosebumps during her confrontation with her father.

    I stopped watching after it started dragging after their marriage but I caught up with the episodes and this drama is perfect for binge watching. This drama would have been perfect if it was around 20 episodes

    • Yes absolutely, this drama would’ve become unforgettable if they had not dragged it & shifted the focus on side characters. Sajal is one of the finest actors of Pakistani drama industry. She surely gives every character her 100%.

  • Oh what an episode it was and what a review Zahra!

    Sajal Aly….take a bow! Adnan and Ahad acted brilliantly too…. Finally, the cat is out of the bag and finally, Ana has recalled everything. However, it shouldn’t have taken Ana much to deduce that it was her Agha Jaan who had ordered for her mom to be killed. As he is the only one whose orders Al Bakhsh follows. Moreover, Nargis bua knew all the time that they had buried Nilofer there but she didn’t utter a word, not even to stop Ana. It was sad to see a daughter digging her mom’s grave and the scene was enacted brilliantly.

    It was a good idea to let Sajal take the front stage and let Ahad be silent. A performance like that definitely deserves center stage. The preview suggests that the final scene is going to be a recreation of the last scene from Yakeen ka Safar and the viewers are in for a treat! Yay Yay!

    P.S. Have you seen the CBA Spoof of Yeh Dil Mera…part 1 and 2. I must say Part 2 is even better than the part 1.

  • What an amazingly talented pair… Sajal stole the show, but Ahad is a actor, not just a performer… he makes his presence felt even when silently watches his wife open her wounds bit by bit… ofcourse Adnan Siddiqui is a perfect foil and is a polished performer…
    This Serial has taken over all others as it has so much to offer.. not just love triangles and home politics…
    Well done director and all involved…

  • Great review Zahra! Today’s episode was amazing. cant wait for the next and I hope Aina finds out about Sahira soon

    • Thank you so much Urwa. Yes, I hope they don’t just let it slide. Even if Ana has found out about the murders her father has committed, she needs to know about the rest of his affairs too.

  • Yes sajal was great but i found myself least interested because of the Drag. I agree with you that Sajal kinda saved them because of her acting. Natasha Hussain is really a bad actress. Adnan Siddiqui was phenomenal too. Anyways i am happy that it’s finally ending

  • I feel this episode was too repetitive as if to extend the play. Yes the main characters performed remarkably well. Kudos to them.

  • It was indeed a good episode. Sajal is brilliant. Her voice modulation was on point in my view. Had they not added those annoying scenes in previous episodes, this show would have remained on high node throughout.
    Yes, we will have YKS vibes in next episode. I also had one in last episode when Ana ran out of Aman’s house and he chased her in his car.

  • I do believe the murderer made a complete mess of everything.For an evil man he was pretty dumb.He was a psycho and should’ve been locked up years ago.How could such an evil,sick man have any love for his daughter?

  • I like the review. Sajal Ali was commendable and Adnan Siddiqui was also brilliant. But Farhana khala, her poorly written dialogues and even poor acting, she tried her level best to spoil the episode by Sajal Ali saved the day. I wonder Why was she trying to hide the truth from Sajal, I think she forgot that she has come all the way from America to unveil the truth of her sister’s death. Nargis Bua was ok in initial episodes but was very irritating in last 2 episodes especially. I wish they should have chosen side characters wisely.

  • excellent review zahra , and ur last week review was also perfect. This drama is not bad, and will always remain one of the very entertaining dramas, but it could have become a classic, but it was ruined by an average direction. Recently I watched belapur ki daayan,and my awesome it was, ofcourse that was horror, but the way the thrill , suspense and flashback was shown, that was needed in this show, maybe saifee hassan could have done a better job.

    Anyways this was expected from ahson talish who has only 1 extra ordinary show and thats suno chanda. within his limitations, he has done a good job. Farhat ishtiaq doesnt write unique stories, but they are emotional and extremely engaging and always makes viewer emotional, and the right director makes it a classic. As fasr as performances are concerned, all did excellent. Sajal Ali has already proved with Alif, YKS and many other dramas, that she is not one of the best, but the BEST actress , even in YDM, she has been gr8 throughout , but for the first time i felt she overacted, she went too OTT for 5mins and her voice modulations didnt work, it was not needed when she already does wonders with her natural and even subtle performance, he she looked possessed. Ahad was good. Adnan was excellent in this episode, ofourse he got a much better role and chance to perform here compared to the overrated MPTH.

    I hope this one ends next week, and yes im looking forward to YKS last scene recreation. Last hospital scenes seem to be fav of pak dramas, Sajal will be doing it for the 3rd time after YKS and Noor ul Ain, also Humayun in classic- Dillagi, Maya Ali in v entertaining MNYH.

  • Salaam Zahra ,
    Hope you are well. Loving your and Fatimas reviews. Will you or she be reviewing Dushman e Jaan . Please say you will. Its amazing.
