19th February Tuesday 2019 dramas:
This Tuesday was another great day for the dramas that air on this day! Beti had a double episode airing that really had many shocking events that happened, Kam Zarf introduced new character arcs and we find out new secrets in Meray Humdam. So all in all, a very eventful day for all three dramas.
Beti (ARY) IDream Entertainment
Let’s begin with the most eventful of all three dramas.
Firstly, Sonia dies finally from overexertion and fatigue as we knew she would.
It was a very sad moment for the drama since even Taimoor begins to reflect on
his actions and how badly he had treated his wife. Fareeda and Maryam are the
only ones who show actual genuine sorrow however, while the others like Dadi
actually wanted Sonia to die. But now that Sonia is gone, Fareeda has to take
care of the entire house and Naila is not willing to move one finger. Azhar’s
daughter continues to suffer until Fareeda sneaks her out of the house and
takes her to Maryam. Another way the characters start to change is when Azhar
realizes that he still loves Maryam; he tries to tell her this in the office
but Naila barges in and demands that Azhar divorce Maryam. Lastly, Dadi starts
to see that Sonia, Maryam and Fareeda all had been good to her despite her own
harsh attitude, and Naila was not all she had hoped. This was a good episode in
terms of character developments and Saheefa Jabbar Khattak continues to do
wonderful work with her character.
Kam Zarf (GEO) Mastermind Productions
Fozia’s troubles are still not over as we see how in this
episode Azar’s attitude has still not changed. Aima of course remains staunch
in her beliefs. Their relatives from America are still staying at their house
and their daughter Faria is an outspoken confident girl who does not stand for
the way Fozia is treated in the house. Asim begins to like Faria and wants to
marry her, while Mona on the other hand develops a love interest in a
classmate. These characters are the only highlights of the drama, since Aima
and Azar both have no redeeming qualities and we can’t wait for them to get
what they deserve. It was an entertaining episode for the sake of the scenes
that had Faria and the younger siblings, but otherwise it gets annoying to see
how clichéd all the people are, even Fozia.
Mere Humdum (HUM Tv) MD Productions
We find out more
about Haris’ past this episode as darker secrets reveal themselves. It seems
that Osama knew all along about Haris’ girlfriends, of whom there were many
apparently. As his closest friend, Osama decides to deal with this one as well
and goes to Paras to tell her to back off since now Haris is happily married.
While Osama is dealing with this problem secretly, Warda is still oblivious to
her husband’s true nature and tries to be loving of him. However, Haris’ past
isn’t his only flaw; his staunch personality that refuses to change for anyone
becomes obvious in the way he refuses to take Warda to work because he has to
rest. His carelessness saddens Warda but her choice has been made even though
she finds Osama a far better person. The addition of Paras was a good choice on
behalf of the writer as she certainly revealed a lot about Haris’ character as
well as how loyal Osama is. But we hope Osama stops being so blindly committed
to Haris and starts standing for himself. As always, Sara Khan is our favorite
from this cast with her excellent performance.
The star of this day was Beti! It has truly returned to its roots with the social issue it has been trying to raise as justice is served for those who had denied Mariam her daughter. The character development was excellent in this episode and done in a gradual manner. Beti has our hearts with its beautiful story. Idream Entertainment has done it again.
