24th February Sunday 2019 dramas:
In competition with the popular Froze Khan and Sana Javed starrer Romeo Weds Heer, we now have a new contender in the form of HUM’s Anaa, starring the talented Hania Amir in the lead role. Read on to find out more about the plotlines of these dramas and if they’re worth watching or not!
Romeo Weds Heer (Geo Tv) 7th Sky Entertainment
Last episode had left us on a cliffhanger, and this time the
suspicions were confirmed when Faryal puts sleeping medicine inside a cake that
Romeo eats. No one knows that Romeo has been kidnapped, and the wedding
preparations are done. Romeo’s parents suspect that he might have run away, but
by the end realize that Romeo has been kidnapped and call the police. For now,
Heer and her family still think Romeo is just late and are at the wedding hall,
but we’ll find out their reactions in the next episode. Things are certainly
getting exciting now with the kidnapping and the climax s being well-executed
as well. Although Faryal’s character is bland we still like the chemistry
between Romeo and Heer and the lighthearted moments throughout the episode that
dilute any seriousness.
Anaa (Hum Tv) MD Productions
Although at the start, the relationships were confusing, we are starting to connect the dots finally! Only on its second episode, Anaa has us excited. After all that ruckus, Daneen and Areesh were still left in the dark about their future until Dada falls sick all of a sudden and has to be taken to the hospital. While there, he gives them his blessings to get married; none of the other family members can now reject Dada’s decision. But their internal disaffections are blatantly clear. Dadi of course thinks Daneen is uncultured and unfit for their family values. However, Ania is the most sympathetic character of all and her hurt upon seeing Areesh marry someone else yet putting on a brave face was the saddest part of this episode. Ania and Altamash’s relation as orphan siblings was also heartwarming and it’s nice to see such relationships outside of the typical husband-wife relation being explored. Daneen and Izza’s meeting and subsequent friendship also leads to Izza planning to reunite the two separated families; it will be interesting to see how that develops on in the future since everyone has hinted that the divide is too large to be resolved. Altamash has already met Izza and it’s unclear whether he recognizes her or not, but we will definitely be watching this drama closely in the future! As always, Hania Amir shows us why she is one of Pakistan’s best actresses right now, and Shahzad Sheikh and her have great chemistry as the two leading roles. The drama also has the beautiful scenery of Chitral as a plus point which is a treat for our eyes!
Even though it has just begun, Anaa has stellar reviews and
ratings already! Competing against the popular Romeo Weds Heer, Anaa has really
shown us why a well-written storyline and excellent set can win against
anything. We recommend watching Anaa and although the relationships between the
characters are initially confusing, once you get into it Anaa is actually
entertaining and fun to watch!
