25th February Monday Dramas 2019:

Monday dramas include Aatish, Bandish and Dil Kya Kare. Following is my analysis of the three dramas which aired yesterday to help you guys choose the best one!


Aatish (HUM Tv) MD Productions

Last time things were not looking good for Asma; Shehryar was under the impression that she had killed their baby and had refused to take her back in, pushing her out of the house for the second time. Zara too complains to Sameer’s mother about all this and the entire family turned against Asma. But this time, things are looking far better. Sameet tells Shehryar the entire story and where his fault lay, and Sumbal also reveals to Shehryar what she had overheard between Sameer and Asma. Now that Shehryar knows everything, he goes after Asma and begs for forgiveness once more. Seeing that they might be taking their baby back, Zara has a breakdown in front of everyone. Asma also fights back and speaks up in front of Shehryar and tells him how much she suffered for his sake. It seems that all of their problems stem simply from a lack of communication and if only the characters interact honestly for once, none of them would have an issue. The conflict is sort of frustrating in that sense as it is so easily resolvable and yet it is being dragged.

Dil Kya Kare (Geo Tv) 7th Sky Entertainment

One of the more positive dramas right now, Dil Kia Karay relies on a simple yet effective story that makes it  delight to watch. Arman is worried about Saadi finding out that Arman liked Aimen, and both of these best friends struggle with their feelings individually. Saadi’s father gives him some words of advice to bridge the gap but Saadi struggles to forgive Arman even though he has been his best friend and support for ages. I like that the relationship between Arman and Saadi was not surface-level and actually was strong enough to make both of them feel the weight of this event. Aimen is unaware for now, but her own sorrow and melancholia about her dead parents is a separate storyline. There are hints of more things to come, such as Arman’s mother hiding some terrible secret and Saadi being involved in some shady blackmailing, but those are yet to be revealed. The drama is light and easy to watch and a sharp contrast to the rest of the dramas on air currently.

Bandish (ARY) Big Bang Entertainment 

A storm of events, as always, happen in Bandish! Madiha is still going to Sumbal for a cure to their affliction and Sumbal continues to trick her into further worsening their condition. Hamza is shown to be supportive extremely of Hania and tries to help her in any way he can, including asking his father. Hania also begins to worry about the bruises over her arms and neck that emerged mysteriously. Madiha tries to sell her jewelry in order to pay Sumbal but Junaid catches her in the act and once again creates a whole scene in their house. As if the control of the black magic has intensified, Madiha falls under a fit in which she also kills her daughters. Sumbal of course seizes this opportunity by giving a voodoo doll to Madiha and tells her to take it to a mazaar as a form of payment instead. Madiha does try to do so but faints before she can reach there. The drama has mastered the art of stringing together events without making it seem too dragged or extended. It grabs our attention throughout the two hours it airs, and the actors like Marina Khan and Hira Mani give a phenomenal performance throughout the long episodes and don’t waver even once.

Verdict

From all of these, Aatish has picked up the interest of the viewers especially since it is nearing its end. Aatish has done a great job in maintaining its quality production throughout as well as the writing which has been strong with every episode. Although at this point we feel it is being dragged but it still makes for an entertaining watch. Bandish comes in second place for obvious reasons; it has an exciting premise for a story and the horror genre which is rare to see so well-made. In the end, all three of the dramas are excellent choices and no matter which you choose, you are sure to be entertained!
