Drama Review: Mohini Mansion Ki Cinderella (Episode 1)

It is directed by Ali Tahir and written by Fasih Bari Khan. It was aired on Bol Entertainment.

Fasih Bari Khan is famous for Quddusi Sahab Ki Bewa. I like dark comedy once in a while. I could not watch Quddusi Sahab Ki Bewa completely, but this one looked more contemporary.

Let’s look at the characters, roughly in the order they are introduced

Uzair – supposedly the narrator of the story. I like the opening scene which has a lot of movements but only a few words. That’s refreshing. I like quite dramas and movies.

Mukhtaran – the landlord of Mohini Mansion who boasts to be very strong physically.

Chacha Radio – The antique store owner

Miyan – the musician in the streets.

Shabana Jharna – an obsessed fan of yesteryear actor Shabnam. The character is played by Shabnam herself, which supposedly created some irony. I don’t like it much.

Shamama – Jharna’s daughter. She shares her mother’s passion for acting. She does small roles in plays to earn enough to run the house.

Pappu Chocolaty – Jharna’s son, crazy about acting

Phupo –

Billi – Elder self obsessed daughter

Kaali – Younger self-concious daughter

Laatu – Phupo’s son

The actresses to play Kaali and Billi look sisters. Kudos to the casting team. Uzuar looks handsome in present and lallu in Mohini Mansion. I like his soft voice and polite tone, though. 

Shabnam singing praises for Shabnam is stretched, even in the first episode. I wonder how irritating it would get if it continues in future episodes as well.

What do you think about this episode?
