Let’s get started with the third episode of Dobara. I’m not too keen on reviewing this drama.
He goes for an interview, blows it with his sharp tongue. I agree with Mahir’s point of view. If he never gets a job, he will never earn experience, right? But the way he articulates his thoughts is just–rude. He is kicked out, and rightfully so. If I was the interviewer, I wouldn’t have entertained Mahir, either.
Now, Narmeen (Zoya Nasir’s character) is forcing Mahir to bring the proposal. Zoya Nasir seems to playing the same character she played in Zebaish-a gold-digger, ahem! I mean, the way she advocates for the unseen Zaman makes me suspicious.
Mahir is going out of his way to convince his parents to go and meet Narmeen’s mother. Tch, I feel for him.
Minal is shown to be very supportive of Mehrunnisa while Affan doesn’t like Mehrunnisa’s new ways.
Mehrunnisa is living her life to the fullest. It’s been 15 days since Hidayatullah’s death. She’s out and about for a walk in the park. Behen, iddat? She’s even wearing makeup. She’s going out for shopping. Again, I ask the same question. Behen, iddat?
Anwar is such an annoying character. When Mahir is talking to his mother, Anwar keeps interjecting. I wanted to just tape his mouth shut.
Most of the characters in this drama are, what’s the word, stereotypical. Step-mother, step-father, gold-digger daughter-in-law, bitter phupho, oh-so-typical. The only atypical character is Mehrunnisa, but she’s something else.
I still don’t understand what this drama is aiming at. I talked about this with my sister, but she doesn’t see a problem in this. She raised a point – is the protagonist shown to be a religious person? She is not, so the events of this drama seem alright to my sis.
But this isn’t about a character being religious or not. My problem is with the makers. What are they trying to tell us? That a woman should not observe iddah? That you should not mourn the death of someone? And why is phupho talking as if this would have been allowed in Canada? Islam kya Canada mein badal jata hai? Jo ghalat hai, woh har jagah ghalat hai.
If this continues on the same track without a clear indication of what the makers are trying to do, I will stop watching this drama. It bothers me, a lot.
