4th February Monday 2019 Dramas
Monday’s back with another exciting lineup of dramas for us! Bandish has been all the rage this week with its fresh, new horror story while Aatish and Dil Kya Kare continue to follow close behind with their unique plotlines. But only one drama can come out at the top; which will it be this week?
Aatish (HUM Tv) MD Productions
Asma survives childbirth and so does her baby in this
episode, which takes a huge weight off of everyone’s shoulders. But the biggest
revelation that happens is when Shehryar finally figures out the truth of what
had happened with Asma as his mother reveals to him the reality after so long.
But he has already agreed to marry Sumbal and the revelation comes at the worst
time possible. This creates a clash for everyone involved as now Shehryar
begins to realize how wrongly Asma had been treated. It was such a relief to
finally see some sort of justice being served for Asma as her honor had already
been so wrongly perceived by Shehryar. However, it is about time the writers
start thinking of some kind of closure for the drama as it has dragged on for
quite some time.
Dil Kya Kare (Geo Tv) 7th Sky Entertainment
This was such a soft and wholesome episode overall. Saadi
and Aimen get married in this episode and although his heart is broken, Arman
bravely goes through everything with a smile on his face and even pretends to
be happy for the sake of Saadi and Aimen. Again, the scenes where Aimen and
Arman have a conversation and Arman confesses that he liked her but that he
will respect her choice were my favorites. Overall, the drama is such a breath
of fresh air from the usual unnecessary drama and fighting that we see in other
dramas. The characters in this drama are mature and progressive, and it is a nice
change of pace.
Bandish (ARY) Big Bang Entertainment
In sharp contrast, we have the immensely popular horror
drama Bandish with new terror every episode. Madiha and her family continue to
be haunted by the black magic that has entered their lives. This time, it is
the middle daughter Hania who ends up becoming a victim as she gets caught by
her father having lunch with her friend’s brother whom she is in love with.
Madiha does her best to defend her daughter but Junaid threatens to divorce
her; it is only through Sania that he stops. Of course, all of this is due to
Sumbul’s dark magic and she does her best to destroy the lives of this family.
The youngest daughter, Aleena, also becomes possessed repeatedly this episode
as well, and the young actress does a fabulous job by scaring us all! Hopefully
the family will find a solution to get rid of this dark specter hanging over
Aatish comes out on the top! With the highest ratings as the story is gradually reaching the climax, and everyone wants to see Asma and Shehreyar together now! Aatish has continued to be a beautiful romantic drama overall. Whereas Bandish has definitely created a lot of hype recently and does offer a thrilling story which promises to pick up its ratings in coming weeks but for now, we will definitely go with Aatish as the story has people eagerly awaiting the union of the two lovers.
