3rd February Sunday 2019 dramas
Last night’s episodes of Romeo Weds Heer and Tajdeed e Wafa were really exciting to watch and we can’t wait to talk about them. Romeo Weds Heer really amped up the quality of its storytelling, whereas Tajdeed e Wafa focused more on developing certain plotlines. Nevertheless, both dramas impressed us with their wide range of talent.
Romeo Weds Heer (Geo Tv) 7th Sky Entertainment
The clash between Romeo and Heer’s families continues as
Romeo attempts to placate Heer’s family by sending gifts supposedly from his
parents. A very sweet moment occurs between Romeo and his father as his father
opens up to him about his past and encourages him to follow his heart. As
always, it was a fun and lighthearted episode, exactly what we have come to
expect of Romeo Weds Heer. The conversation between Romeo and his father was
especially a nice change in pace as we got to see a more emotional side to the
doctor that didn’t include any silly antics. But the drama stayed true to its
roots and amidst all the rather serious events, included the same bits and
jokes. Romeo Weds Heer has become something we truly rely on for a nice end to
our Sundays and while many times the jokes get repetitive, the drama makes sure
to introduce some new comedic aspects to revamp their drama.
Tajdeed e Wafa (Hum Tv) MD Productions
This episode of Tajdeed e Wafa was probably the saddest one
for me. As per usual, Asher visits Neha and talks to her, still stuck in his
own sorrow as his children become more defiant of their father. Hareem is the
one who steps in for the sake of these children, meeting up with them after
school, picking and dropping them and generally filling in the role of the
mother they had lost. Hareem’s father sends her mother divorce papers which
causes a lot of emotional turmoil in their family. And Arsal becomes closer to
Wareesha and begins to fall in love with her. But the aspect that made this
episode the saddest was the slow development of dementia in Arsal’s mother and how
Arsal’s father slowly realizes that his wife was losing her sanity. This was
shown in small things initially, as Arsal’s father realizes that it wasn’t the
children who had been hiding the TV remotes but his own wife who had been
placing these items in random places and forgetting about them. He hides this
fact from Asher initially, but does take his wife to the doctor and starts
taking care of her unlike before. While the rest of the plot devices were the
same as before, this particular event really made the episode melancholic and
enjoyable to watch.
Although the development of mental illness in Arsal’s mother
was a good introduction, it doesn’t change the fact that every other aspect of
the drama has gotten drenched up and exhausted at this point. So our suggestion
would be to stick to Romeo Weds Heer; it is fun and easy to watch, and is
currently the most popular comedy drama on air.
