Thursday Drama Guide: Aangan VS Koi Chand Rakh VS Baba Jani

31 January Thursday 2019 Dramas

Thursdays are truly the best day of the week for dramas! Aangan, Koi Chand Rakh and Baba Jani are all top-notch dramas and the ones that majority are watching these days. Their unique combination of distinctive filming style and storytelling method makes them a force to be reckoned with in their own right. The best part is that they have managed to sustain the same level of interest from the audience throughout the time they have aired on television. What is it about these particular dramas that makes us so fond of them?

Aangan (Hum Tv) MD Productions

We return to Mazhar’s family to witness an interesting turn of events; Aaliya ends up going to a British school and her school principal comes over to visit her house. Her mother goes all out to welcome the principal but Mazhar’s hatred for the British colonialists leads to him escaping the house through different means. A crucial development was Mazhar telling Safdar to marry Tehmina and go to Aligarh University to study further. But as always, Mazhar’s wife interferes and throws a fit. Meanwhile, things are lighter in Azhar’s household with Chammi’s lively character. In fact, Chammi has become what we look forward to in every episode because she is far more captivating and entertaining than any other character. Sajal Aly is a hugely talented actor who is ruling as the queen of our hearts. The drama is certainly picking up its pace and introducing major plot lines that will develop into something bigger as time goes by. But for now we hope the director attempts to branch out more outside of Mazhar’s family.

Koi Chand Rakh (ARY) IDream Productions

The karma that had been coming for Nishaal finally hits her this episode. Zayn begins to spend more time with his daughter Ujaala and realizes he loves her, but it is too late as Rabail refuses to forgive him. Sadly, Zayn’s mother passes away but this doesn’t stop Nishaal from being her usual exasperating self. She continues to over think about Zayn and convinces herself that he is cheating on her and so barges in to Zayn and his sister. At this point in time it becomes clear Zayn is definitely having second thoughts about Nishaal and his feelings for Rabail have definitely not died. The drama is finally getting interesting again and the story is definitely one that has us on the edge of our seats every time!

Baba Jani (Geo Tv) Connect Studios

Mehwish and Nimra finally find some middle ground and end the passive-aggressive environment they were living in, but this obviously is interpreted as an attack by the constantly self-obsessed Najiba and Naila. Another ironic thing that happens is Najiba’s son Umair falling in love with Nimra. As always, this is taken in the wrong sense by Najiba. It was a heartwarming scene to see Mehwish and Nimra get along well and the flashback Nimra has of her own mother Saadia. The placement of this scene was well-placed and Madiha Imam’s acting has shined in these recent episodes. We’re glad such young talent is getting the platform they deserve!


This is always the most difficult part for Thursday’s dramas, especially considering the diversity of stories and actors. Koi Chand Rakh leads the very narrow race this time as well, as its fast-paced and thrilling storyline continues to grasp our attention. But Aangan and Baba Jani both are close behind and certainly give Koi Chand Rakh some competition!
