Zebaish | Episode 9

The episode begins with the same scene where it had ended. Javed is truly upset with Fakhra and Tashi’s greed. Shabeer Jan has nailed the scene. I feel that he is the protagonist of the story. I mean Zara and Asad are sidelined. And so far Javed’s characters has seen the most variations, tribulations, peaks…

Zebaish | Episode 4

I think this drama’s sole purpose is to give a chance to overact their bums. Each actor seem to follow one mantra: Go hamming way. So, Javed proposes Munshi’s widow. Javed is old but quite the romantic.  Javed and Parvez both recognize Nadra and her past as a courtesan dancer. Nadra in turn gets upset…

Zebaish | Episode 3

This drama is boring. The Showbiz Side Parvez cannot stop flirting with Shahana. Bushra’s makeup is so nicely done. She’s the contrast of her look in Deewar-e-Shab.

Zebaish | To Watch or Not to Watch

1 The Credits Zebaish looks like a home production: aunt Bushra Ansari wrote the story, acted too. Took younger sister Asma Abbas, Asma’s daughter Zara Noor Abbas, Zara’s husband Asad Siddiqui… Don’t get me wrong. I am a big fan of all these names individually. I just think seeing them all together will constantly remind…

Drama Review: Ranjha Ranjha Kardi – Episode #31

Finale Episode, woo hoo! The last episode reiterates that nobody should be between Allah and banda when we ask from Him. And we should ask only from Allah. The conversation between Noori and Fehmeeda, well, more like a monologue was really nicely written and executed. Well done! We need that change in Muslim society. So, Noori refuses to…
