Book Review | Daana Paani | Umera Ahmed | Episode 9

It wa only yesterday that I logged into my Goodreads account, I do that once in a month or so to check for comments or messages. Someone had liked my review: Book Review: Aisa Kabhi Nahin Hota by Umera Ahmed 

I read what I had writtem and then re-read the. The e story and the review, both were fun to read. And, today I’m back to reviewing another story by Umera Ahmed. I’m afraid I don’t have the same sentiments for this one. 

Plot Summary

Remember my rant about writers killing off their characters? Whether it is Badshah Begum or Kaisi Teri Khudgharzi, it reminds me of my nephew who once told me a story and killed every character.

And that is the summary of this episode.


I had two WTF moments last week, one when I watched the second last episode of Kaisi Teri Khudgharzi and Shamsher died, and the second one when I read the latest episode of Daana Paani and Murad died.


What’s going on? 

And then Motiya and Allah Wasai disappear from the village Jhok Jeevan.

At the end of this episode, Umera has penned a short note saying that the story is over.

Seriously? What’s going on? 

I think Umera tried to do some sort of experiment with Daana Paani which failed miserably in my not-so-humble opinion. Other readers may have liked it, but it just wasn’t my cuppa. I am more inclined towards a rom-com story, or a romantic story, or a drama story, or a sane story, something that makes sense. And, this one didn’t, for most of it’s part.
