Chaudhry and Sons Episode 18 Written Update & Review

Pari and her obsession with her bird Chanda

Pari dreams about her pet Chanda. I know, it’s getting a bit much. But I can understand. First, she loses Tara no thanks to Bunty Chaudhry’s quest for more followers. And then she loses Tara, which she conveniently blames on Billu’s antics. I have never had pets, and I can never imagined being to attached to a bird or something. So…

But that’s not important. What’s important is that Pari forces Billu to take her to Chanda’s grave, fateha padhne ke liye, I guess 🙂

Billu and Pari’s little outing

OMG I love love love the whole sequence. From their verbal war to their fake egos to their concerns for each other… It was sizzling chemistry between Ayeza Khan and Imran Ashraf Awan. From one scene to other, from one emotion to other, they were superb.

 

Pari: Shukr karo mujh se mil liye

Billu: Gadi rok ke 2 rakat nafil na padh loon?

 

Billu’s confusion and change of heart

After their little outing, something has changed in Billu. He can’t stop thinking about Pari. He keeps thinking of her quirks.

Yep, Billu is in love.

And if that was not enough, Dildar Chaudhry tells Billu about their proposal. 

The bickering doesn’t stop, though. The next morning they are back to being at each other’s case.  

Naeema and Sabir’s objections to the proposal

Things can’t go happily-ever-after Naeema and Sabir They don’t like how suddenly the proposal is finalized, and that their family is not known. Little do they know that they are their family. 

 

Dildar Chaudhry’s little emotional blackmail 

At first, dada ji tries to be all sweet and polite with the two kids who just wouldn’t behave. When that doesn’t work, he reminds Naeema about Mukhtar’s favours over the years. He makes the emotional, and they finally relent. I laughed out loud. This is how things should be–use emotional blackmailing when reasons just don’t work.

Naeema is so emotional, that she even talks to Billu, and asks him to be more considerate towards Pari. Billu reluctantly agrees, and then he winks at his grandpa and gives a thumbs up. Their bond, my goodness…

Review

This episode again brings Feroz Khan and his chunni chunni eyes. I like how smartly this team incorporates its own dramas in the narrative. 

I don’t have enough words to express how much I love dada-pota relationship in this drama. Dildar Chaudhry and Billu Chaudhry are best friends and they know each other like the back of their hands. They are just too good. I would say that Saima Akram Chaudhary has done great job in writing the romance between Pari and Billu, and she has put in same amount of effort in Billu’s love for his dada ji. If the writing was great, heartfelt performances by Sohail Ahmad and Imran Ashraf makes it superlative. Loveeeee… 

Malka Begum’s relationship with her granddaughter is also so beautifully depicted. This bond seems a bit one-sided at times. Malka Begum wakes up and looks for Pari, and she has very many terms of endearment for Pari. She makes me want to wish I had a grandmother like her (my grandparents had passed away in my childhood). I think that more than the writing, Irsa Ghazal’s acting had made Malka Begum the grandmother we all want.

“Chaudhry & Sons” has been the best Ramzan drama since the first episode. “Hum Tum” is also nice. Initially it was more annoyance than entertainment, but now things are on right track. As for Paristan, the show has also gained some brownie points of late. This Ramzan is great in terms of content 🙂
