We were very excited when we found out that Shaista Lodhi will be making her acting debut opposite Faysal Qureshi in ARY’s drama titled Waada .So when it finally aired , we sat down in front of our tv screens expecting a visual treat with an interesting story. Because let’s face it, acting isn’t new for our drama queen and that’s what morning show hosts do.

Within ten minutes our excitement had jumped out of the window and we were left wondering why we even bothered to watch this drama in the fist place. Casting Lodhi was probably a mistake on the makers part since acting in a lead role is obviously not her cup of tea. Her discomfort in front of the camera as an actor was quite visible and pretty torturous for us to bear!

Written by Samina Aijaz, the brains behind Dusri Biwi and Tum Meri Ho, we expected a better story. However, the first episode of Waada left us disappointed. Faysal Qureshi and Saboor Ali were the only saving grace, other than them, there isn’t anything interesting or thought provoking about this play.

A good script and a brilliant cast make perfect ingredients for a drama to sell. Even with Faysal Qureshi’s star power, this does not seem to be the case with Waada. Lodhi fails as an actress and her dialog delivery is forceful making her look fake and completely out of place.

Produced by Fahad Mustafa and Dr. Ali Kazmi, the play revolves around a happily married couple, Shahab (Qureshi) and the wife Sumaira (Lodhi). Living in a joint family, Sumaira is quite happy and loved by her mother in law and a younger sister in law who is about to get married. The couple so far only have one daughter whom they both adore.

Accompanying them in the house is a maid named Rehmat who is rather obnoxious and annoying. She sweet talks with everyone but is usually busy stealing money when left unmonitored. Another character which we did not like at all was Khala Bi who is related to Shahab’s mother.

To add to the already distasteful drama, Saboor Ali plays the role of a maid named Jana who is interested in the owner’s son Naveed. She doesn’t miss a single chance to get close to him but he does not encourage her one bit.

However, the episode ends with her lying in the same bed as Naveed. Finding him fast asleep, the opportunity seemed too tempting for her to miss. She conveniently slips into his bed and takes a nap!

The episode was disappointing from the start till end and we were left with a million questions in our head.

This looks like a topic that has been repeatedly portrayed in our dramas. We know this stuff is happening in the society but then what’s the point of highlighting and promoting it further? Besides, we don’t want to further corrupt the masses, do we? Let this drama time be for some thought provoking stories with more substance instead of Waada
