Chauraha Episode 6 Written Update & Review

Shireen and phupho are worried about missing Zoya and contemplating whether they should seek help.


 Junaid calls Shireen and asks for 10 lakh rupees as ransom. As the poor mother can’t arrange for the money, they go to the police station to file an FIR. The police behaves in the typical way. While the first officer refuses to wake up the SHO, the SHO hits on Shireen and asks her to “coordinate” with him. Tch… Can’t we show the police in food light for once?



Junaid and his gang is torturing Zoya. She tries to escape once, tries to kill herself once, Junaid shoots Zoya once, but both of them survive magically. Many scenes seem disjointed and are unexplained. I still don’t understand why Junaid shot Zoya and why nothing happened to her. Anywho!



Saba Hameed and Bushra Ansari are two veterans and seasoned actors who can never go wrong. They do justice to their roles of grieving, helpless women with a missing daughter. 

Mikal Zulfiqar doesn’t seem intimidating enough, and even his voice sounds different. But he is putting a lot of effort, we can see. 

Asad Siddiqui and Ayesha Gul have very little screen presence but they never disappoint. Asad has always been a sweetheart, and Ayesha Gul is perfect as a hyper protective bete ki maan

Madiha Imam is the only weakling in this cast. She can’t cry, she can’t emote pain, she can’t emote disgust. She can’t act. Period. She was still tolerable in Dil e Momin but Zoya in Chauraaha is just insufferable.
