So after Sang-e-Mar-Mar I found my Thursday evenings replaced by Phir Wohi Mohabbat. Directed by Mohsin Mirza and written by Mansoor Saeed, it has completed 12 episodes by far. The promos were looking good for awhile until they became overplayed, but what can we say to that. Phir Wohi Mohabbat stars Hania Amir and Ahmed Ali Akbar in lead roles, playing Alishba and Waleed in respective roles. After winning hearts in Janaan as Palwasha, Hania Amir has won over all of our hearts, so I had to say I was looking forward to her acting. The story...

Sitting through tonight’s episode was nothing short of a challenge not only because of the timing but also because the director apparently took this script a little too seriously!! Even in situations which are completely comical, the scenes are shot in such detail that everything you see is more staged than anything else. There are always people in the background either nodding their heads or laughing in these situations and the focus is never on the main subject. The backgrounds are being highlighted more than necessary and the...

Sigh. Dair aaye par durust aye. Sums up my sentiments in a nutshell about having delayed watching this drama earlier. A Six Sigma Plus production, directed by Danish Nawaz and written by Asiya Mirza, Sun Yaara has been on air weekly on ARY Digital for a while now. Twenty two weeks (episodes) to be precise. Having seen Junaid Khan last act in Unsunni (shudder) and not being a fan of Hira Mani because, well just because, I was not tempted to watch the drama until I came across the OST and the whole OST video was such a treat to watch and...

I appreciate the fact that Samina Ejaz is an expert at penning down scripts which may not be grand but they are almost always enticing because her dramas are usually logical and they have plenty of twists and turns to keep the viewers looking forward to more. However, after so many weeks of waiting to see Naila pay for her mistakes, it is extremely disappointing how all these shocking and tragic developments are not leading to a change in Naila’s personality or a conclusive step forward which would give the viewers hope that she...

Ohkay so, this episode of Nazr e Bad was all over the place. Not sure why are they digging the old graves & showing the flashbacks of those scenarios which have nothing to do with the story & its development. The fact that they didn’t air the 2nd episode this week & turned that episode into a recap shows that are not left with much content & are just aiming for a higher number of episodes. This drama should’ve ended weeks ago but it is such a shame that the team is still bent on stretching the story to the limit...

Bilal Lashari, the director of Waar, revealed during a 2013 interview that he will be directing the sequel to Maula Jatt, a Punjabi action and musical film released in 1979.
