7th January Thursday 2019 dramas
We’re back on Thursday and the three dramas have really increased their quality level this time! Aangan, Koi Chand Rakh and Baba Jani have become the staple dramas for our entire weeks and we eagerly await for them every time. Koi Chand Rakh and Baba Jani had some new plot twists included within their stories that really shocked us whereas Aangan expanded more on its characters and events.
Aangan (Hum Tv) MD Productions
Safdar’s disaffection at Mazhar’s home finally becomes too
much for him to handle and so he decides it is time for him to leave. He parts
tearfully with Tehmina, and instructs her to stand up for herself. The entire
situation around Mazhar’s home showed a part of our society that has been going
on for generations; women have their freedom restricted and are unable to do
anything. On the other side, Chammi and Jamil continue their lighthearted
banter but it is gradually becoming obvious that this relationship is only one
sided and Jamil is being non-committal while Chammi has put her entire heart in
this. We’re so glad Aangan has cleared out the confusion of characters by now
because we’re really beginning to get into the story and becoming attached to
the characters. Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir are by far the best in this drama
as they play off each other fantastically.
Koi Chand Rakh (ARY) IDream Productions
In what is bound to be the second last episode of this
drama, Nishaal tries to kill herself as she is under her usual mental state.
But it backfires when she survives but her baby sadly dies. In classic Nishaal
way, she blames it on Rabail but the tides have turned against Nishaal and in
favor of Rabail; Zayn no longer takes Nishaal’s side and is even starting to
apologize to Rabail. Things seem to be going pretty well for those who deserve
it but we have a hunch the last episode is going to have all hell break loose.
Until now we are hooked onto this drama and are going to be so sad to see it
Baba Jani (Geo Tv) Connect Studios
Unable to see peace in their brother’s house, Asfand’s evil
sisters begin to sow more seeds of dissent within Mehwish and Nimra even though
they had started getting along after so long. Najiba’s son Umair confesses to
Nimra that he loves her and wants to marry her, which is a bit too late seeing
as how he himself had their wedding cancelled. Najiba tries to cover this fact
up by making sure no one talks about it. The episode ended when a mysterious
caller contacts Mehwish and Mehwish immediately becomes scared. The end was
pretty mysterious and this can only bring more trouble to the already-disturbed
Koi Chand Rakh wins this round. As it nears its end, the
writers of Koi Chand Rakh really seem to amp up the quality of the drama.
Aangan follows close behind with beautiful visuals and a narrative which has us
travelling back in time.
