Which movies to watch this season?

September has already started which means Eid-ul-Azha is around the corner which means the movies we’ve been waiting for are about to release! *screams with joy* A few years before all we had to look forward to were fauji movies or movies that were very close to reality because they were cynical. Now, however, directors and producers have recognised the primary role that movies are … Continue reading Which movies to watch this season?

Mah-e-Mir ~ review

This movie had been on my must-watch list since it was announced so you can imagine the excitement I felt as I walked in the cinema to finally watch it. Was it worth it? Well… Mah-e-Mir goes back and forth in time, portraying the lifetime of the legendary Urdu poet Mir Taqi Mir and a modern day, struggling poet Jamal, both played by Fahad Mustafa. … Continue reading Mah-e-Mir ~ review

Gul-e-Rana last episode ~ review

If there is one thing I liked about Gul-e-Rana, it was the ending. And the lead pair’s acting. And of course, the northern locations they shot in. The last episode was pretty hasty, or it seemed so to me. The drama dragged for so long and all of a sudden they hushed everything up. I still don’t get the point of Ashar’s storyline, it didn’t … Continue reading Gul-e-Rana last episode ~ review

Mana Ka Gharana episodes 9-14 ~ review

Not a lot has happened since I started missing out on Mana Ka Gharana. I mean there have been developments but considering that I missed around 5-6 episodes, the story has only inched forward. But that is the consistent pace of the serial so I can only bemoan it so many times. When I left off, Sheharyar’s jealousy for Khizar had come to a full … Continue reading Mana Ka Gharana episodes 9-14 ~ review

Mann Mayal episodes 3-4 ~ review

After 3 weeks of hibernation, I finally made myself watch the episodes I missed of Mann Mayal and I honestly don’t know what to make of Salahuddin. Is there any coherence in his character? One minute he is confident that he’ll reach Mannu’s standards if given a few years and the next he’s sure she is a star he can’t reach even when she is … Continue reading Mann Mayal episodes 3-4 ~ review

Mann Mayal episode 2 ~ review

The second episode of Mann Mayal was as enjoyable as the first one. The characters and their relationships with each other were well established in last week’s episode. This week not only did the story move forward, some old secrets were revealed as well. Remember the passing references to Sara baji’s pending divorce? Turns out her parents want her to quit a perfect marriage because … Continue reading Mann Mayal episode 2 ~ review

Mana Ka Gharana episode 8 ~ review

Money can transform people. Or maybe it just reveals their real self. Mana’s mother is a perfect example. A woman who claimed just weeks ago that she wouldn’t want Khizar to suffer in any way is now so against him that she is willing to doubt his character and throw as much dirt as she can at him. He went, against his best judgment, to … Continue reading Mana Ka Gharana episode 8 ~ review

Mann Mayal episode 1 ~ review

Finally! The first episode of the most awaited serial of all went on air and did not disappoint. We were introduced to the lead characters and their families and thanks to good editing, the episode moved on to reveal a bit of plot line. The opening scene was enough to attract anyone to this drama. We see Mannu (Maya Ali) walking out of the haveli … Continue reading Mann Mayal episode 1 ~ review

Gul-e-Rana episode 12 ~ review

One word for this episode: bipolar. From the first scene to the last, every scene had a different mood which had no link to the previous one. Adeel seemed both ashamed and sorry after losing temper earlier and tried to make up for it by complimenting Rana but then tried to restrain her from leaving and then challenged her to free herself from his grip … Continue reading Gul-e-Rana episode 12 ~ review

Mana Ka Gharana episode 7 ~ review

What happened in MKG’s 7th episode, my friends, is what happens when you fall in love with someone after finding out they own a sexy car. Ok no, people with awesome cars can be nice too. But not if they are nephews of women like Gulbahar. Then there is a 99.99% chance that they are a douche and Sheharyar is no exception. Mana, his sweetheart, … Continue reading Mana Ka Gharana episode 7 ~ review
