Mann Aangan Episode 1 Written Update & Review

Assalam Alaikum everyone!

I recently watched the first episode of the new Pakistani drama soap “Mann Aangan” which is currently airing on ARY Digital. I must say the first look of the drama reminded me of another ARY soap opera from last year, “Angna“: four sisters dealing with marital/relationship issues of different kind, you know.

Like “Angna”, “Mann Aangan” is a family drama that explores the complexities of relationships and the dynamics within a household. The first episode introduced us to the main characters and their respective issues. We see Mahi, her two sisters and her mother.

The eldest daughter Areeba is married to her cousin Saqlain. Saqlain looks after the financial matters of the family, and also keeps jataoing his ehsaan.

Mahi, the middle daughter goes to uni and college, both. The youngest daughter Rimsha is studying in college.

Areeba thinks that Saqlain can do no wrong. She’s the kind of wife who thinks of her husband like a superior creature or something. Mahi questions Saqlain about the financial aspect which leaves Areeba and Saqlain fuming. How dare Mahi ask him questions about her father’s money? Weird logic, right?

The episode ends as Saqlain walks out from the house. That’s a mild cliffhanger, leaving us wondering what will happen next.

One thing that stood out to me in “Mann Aangan” was the attention to detail in the production design. The set of the house is beautiful, and the costumes and makeup of the characters are also well-done. The cinematography is also impressive, with some stunning shots of the Pakistani landscape.

Overall, I think “Mann Aangan” has the potential to be a great drama series. It has a strong cast, a compelling storyline, and beautiful production design. However, I do hope that the writers can come up with some fresh and innovative plot twists instead of relying on tired old clichés.

In conclusion, if you are a fan of family dramas, then I would definitely recommend giving “Mann Aangan” a try. And if you enjoyed “Angna” from last year, then you are sure to like this new offering from ARY Digital. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the lives of the characters in “Mann Aangan”!
