Movie Review: Load Wedding

Review I watched this movie in April, only to kill time and  had no intentions of writing a post about it. But then, I had a nagging feeling that I am forgetting something. The movie was released on Eid-ul-Adha 2018. It is a romantic social comedy, something the director-writer duo  Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza have…

Drama Review: Ranjha Ranjha Kardi – Episode #6

The episode opens with Noori’s refusal to marry Shoka and her conversation with Amma Jannate. Iqra does a fine job of playing an angry and heartbroken girl, disappointed in her parents, who are willing to accept her alliance with Shoka only because he is offering them money. Yep, selling their daughter. Noori’s anger is justified….

Drama Review: Suno Chanda Season 2

Review I have heard people say that sequel ruins the original. It really did in this case. The sequel in my opinion was made just for the heck of it, just to cash the success of immensely popular season 1.  The storyline did not have substantial scope to continue. The season begins exactly from where…

Drama Review: Suno Chanda Season 2 – Episode 30

Review First and foremost, Eid Mubarak! It is the Eid special finale episode that we all have been waiting for. I know I was, cuz some episodes felt dragged.

Review The episode opens with a hospital scene. Later, Maina asks Meetho to forget her and she cannot go against Daarji’s will.

Drama Review: Suno Chanda Season 2 – Episode 27

Review Yes, the tables have indeed turned. The family was worried about Arsal and now against Jia. But neither have learned a lesson from it. Arsal continues to overact to garner more attention.  Jia continues to act just as childishly. I’m getting sick of these two now.  The other track of Maina, Meetho and their…

Drama Review: Suno Chanda Season 2 – Episode 26

Review Argh… The episode is fast and furious. Huma tells Jia about her admission in University, Jia gets admission as well, they classes begin and Arsal goes to pick her up. Jia creates a scene and Arsal gets arrested. Fast, yes? And ugly, too. What Jia has done is unfair. Strangely, everybody seems to be…
