It’s a pretty easy choice to make on Sundays: what drama is the most stress-free and enjoyable at the same time? The dramas on Sunday, Romeo Weds Heer, Tajdeed e Wafa and Hoor Pari, all have winning characteristics which is why they’re the most watched dramas of Sundays currently. But do they really fit into the category of dramas we want to watch on Sundays? Read on and find out!
Romeo Weds Heer (Geo Tv) 7th Sky Entertainment
Romeo and Heer finally get engaged despite the hurdles in
the form of their respective families. All in all, this drama is the kind that
we can sit back and not pay much attention to while watching, a perfect
candidate for the above-mentioned category! The humor is at times slapstick and
over-the-top, and perhaps not to everyone’s taste. A lot of the jokes border on
utter nonsense, and no one exactly pays much attention to acting either. But
compared to other dramas, Romeo Weds Heer is adequate enough to see us through
the week and give us a dose of simplistic humor in midst of the usual serious,
Tajdeed e Wafa (Hum Tv) MD Productions
While during its first few episode Tajdeed e Wafa gave us a
glimpse of a potentially interesting drama, we are severely disappointed in the
way it has shaped its story into. This week’s episode was so bland and nothing
of consequence happens; it honestly felt like wasted time. Asher and Neha’s
story is the only moderately interesting aspect left, while Arsal and Hareem’s
arc ended a long time ago. Even with Asher and Neha, Neha is in a coma which is
ironic since she was the only attracting point and the producers removed her
from the story for now. All in all, Tajdeed e Wafa needs to step its game up
before it loses its viewers.
Hoor Pari (Aplus) Mubashir Hassan
Things speed up in A-Plus’ Hoor Pari as Fehmida’s mother has
health issues leading to Fehmida desperately seeking money to pay for the
hospital bills. Her daughters have their own private lives ensuing; Gulnaz, the
sensible and smart one finds herself in conflict with her aunt’s son, Imran.
Durdana, the more self-obsessed sister is in love with her cousin Amjad but the
latter does not reciprocate her feelings. There is nothing new about this story
since basically every drama replicates it in one way or another, but the
quality of the drama is surprisingly high. The quality is obvious through the cinematography,
but obviously such aspects cannot cover the blatantly shallow plot. Even
Gulnaz, played by the talented Alizeh Shah, feels like a trope; all of her
scenes are either complaining about how life dealt her the wrong hand or
crying. It’s a shame to see such acting skills go to waste.
Again, Romeo Weds Heer comes out at the top. The drama is rating exceptionally well and has become the most watched drama currently on air. The content of the drama is somewhat weak and they really do need to work on their jokes more, that’s for sure, but seeing how popular it has become, looks like such simplistic humor works for the masses.
Tajdeed e Wafa and Hoor Poori are merely adequate, but for me personally they seem like a waste of time so keeping everything in account, the winner of Sundays is Romeo Weds Heer.
