Mera Yakeen – Episode 12 & 13

Posted by Fatima Awan On October - 25 - 2012 6 COMMENTS

Technically I should be happy for Nazish after watching this latest installment but somehow I can’t help but see her as the “other woman”, although I know only too well that she is Asfand’s wife and deserves his love just as much as Maha does. When I saw both of them going out and enjoying themselves a part of me did feel slightly happy for Nazish but somehow I felt like Asfand was being disloyal to Maha. Even when I write this it all seems very wrong but that is how I felt even though I tried very hard not to feel this way. It seems like I have started to have a serious problem with the storyline. I would have found it so much easier to feel happy for Nazish had she been married to someone else.

Since Maha cannot keep an eye on Asfand she asks her “loyal” servant to report back to headquarters at the end of the day or whenever Asfand talks or goes out with Nazish. Maha has been shown as a very unreasonable, emotional, self centered woman so what is keeping her from asking Asfand to divorce Nazish? She is probably waiting for the two to fall in love with each other so that there is some more drama in the drama! Asfand one fine day fell in love with Nazish and I really did not see that coming. I must say that it could have been done in a much better way; it really does seem like it was sympathy or need that brought him close to her than love.

One of the viewers pointed out that Faisal Qureshi’s way of talking in Mera Yakeen was like that of Nadeem Baig and I must say that I agree completely. Actually I had been wondering for quite sometime now that who talked like that and I am glad the mystery is solved!

All the actors have done an amazing job in this play but for the past four episodes or so I have been finding it difficult to relate to the latest developments or to feel for any of the characters. An interesting sidetrack could have been a good idea, watching Maha on the bed wearing the same outfits over and over again is getting to me…some change of scenery would be good. The reason for the marriage, like I stated earlier was also unconvincing and so is Asfand’s love for Nazish and not to mention Maha not asking Asfand to divorce Nazish.

Mera Yakeen has a stellar cast but the script in particular has failed to impress. It is the same old story of a man who is in love with two women at the same time and the fact that one of them is bed ridden does not help!

Mera Yakeen – Episode 10 & 11

Posted by Fatima Awan On October - 14 - 2012 3 COMMENTS

Nazish and Asfand got married solely because of Maha’s “zid”. I am finding it extremely hard to relate to the circumstances under which the two got married. So what if Maha wanted things to be that way Asfand and Nazish both could have knocked some sense into her. Nazish could also do a million better things with her life than getting married to Asfand.

The Nazish/Asfand conversation before the marriage was very strange, the way Asfand asked Nazish if she was being forced into getting married to him…isn’t it obvious that this shadi was based on Majburis and nothing else. Anyway let’s not get into the details of this very strange union.

After trying so hard to settle in two different houses before, Nazish once again is caught up in the same situation where she feels unwelcome and uncomfortable. Although Maha begged Asfand and Nazish to go ahead with this marriage but now she reacts as if she never wanted this marriage to take place, Maha seemed like a typical spoiled brat….I am sorry but I had to say that!

I wish Maha would stop calling Nazish naye dulhan it really annoys me. Nazish got married to Asfand so that she could look after the house and kids but so far she has taken no interest in both the things. I think we all have a fair idea where things will go from here.

These two episodes were nothing special to be honest and did not give me much to look forward to. Even an excellent cast and the spot on performances from them did not give me much to write home about because the recent developments in the story disappointment me, to say the least. No wonder the play has been moved to Thursdays!

Mera Yakeen – Episode 8 & 9

Posted by Fatima Awan On September - 30 - 2012 8 COMMENTS

I thoroughly enjoyed these two episodes of Mera Yakeen, the acting was brilliant as usual, the development in the story was truly engrossing and the direction was absolutely flawless. Most of all these two episodes gave me a lot to ponder on.

Maha’s dependence on servants and nurses and the resultant hostility that is the outcome of frustration, her insecurity that her kids and husband will become estranged due to her condition and most of all Maha’s lack of faith in God, the way she does not even think for a second the way Nazish does, all of it truly helps one reflect upon our own actions, the way most of us think that we are in control of our lives when actually it is God who has the final say. Nazish’s yakeen in Allah and acceptance of the circumstances He is putting her in makes it so much easier for Nazish to deal with her problems. Nazish even after the traumatic divorce has moved on because she has faith that God has something better planned for her. Nazish just like Maha has absolutely no idea why she went through all the troubles in life but she has faith that God knows best, she believes in what she doesn’t know, what she cannot see and what she cannot control. But Maha only believes in what she can see and feel, she is paralyzed and we see her questioning why did this happen to her, not for a second did she accept it as God’s will or think that God may change the way things are if she has faith. She thinks she is no longer in control of her life therefore she makes the most horrendous decision (in my humble opinion), just so she would be in control. When Nazish asks her father how to develop the yakeen in Maha that things will be okay or how to convince her to move on , he tells Nazish that yakeen can only come when we accept “Jo us ne diya hai vo us ki dain hai aur jo us ne cheen lia hai us ki raza hai”. It sounds very simple but acquiring that kind of faith is not easy for most of us. For me personally Nazish’s faith in God or destiny and her positive nature is extremely inspiring. The way she forgets about her troubles and goes all out to help Maha come back to life is heroic for sure.

Maha’s children are scared of their mother because she is always shouting or crying and Asfand must go on with life, being busy at office and attending parties. Maha feels very left out and finally decides that she can trust Nazish. But the turn that the trust she has on Nazish took was extremely foolish on Maha’s part. Why couldn’t Maha hire another maid, since they are so readily available. After all she is not expecting Asfand and Nazish to be husband and wife but she only wants Nazish to marry Asfand so she can look after the house and her children and also because she is so certain that Asfand will never fall in love with someone like Nazish. Come to think of it Maha is trusting Nazish with this “responsibility’ solely because she looks down upon her and does not think she can ever match up to her. So, how does that secure Maha’s marriage? It absolutely does not. If Maha thinks that Asfand will get married one day then he might just do it even with Nazish in his life. This is what happens when you don’t rely on God to make things better for you but take destiny in your own hands. Maha is literally trying to hand craft her future…is that really possible? Most certainly not! Shifting her bed to the living room would have been a far wiser decision!

I found it rather odd the way Nazish shared Maha’s decision with her mother right away since she must know her mother will jump to the opportunity. And the way Nazish was contemplating how it was all going to be like…the whole Asfand ke dil mei jaga banana conversation was really strange. It would have been better if Nazish did not share Maha’s decision with her mother herself but Maha called her and tried to convince her. Asfand does not want to go along with the “plan” because he feels that Maha will not be able to take it and also because he feels that they are using Nazish. How can Maha not see that her husband already feels for the woman she is getting him married to. Maha obviously sees Nazish as a very submissive woman who would even after getting married to Asfand still follow Maha’s commands…like I said she would be like a housekeeper who is married to Maha’s husband.

We all saw in the first two episodes that Asfand has a very high opinion of Nazish and in a way looks upto her, Maha completely fails to see this and will surely regret her decision.

These two episodes were extremely engaging and I am really looking forward to what Mera Yakeen has to offer next. Maha will know very soon whether it was her yakeen or guman that made her do what she did…ignorance is not always bliss!

Mera Yakeen – Episode 7

Posted by Fatima Awan On September - 16 - 2012 11 COMMENTS

This was another amazing episode of Mera Yakeen, in fact this drama is turning out to be one of my favorite serials nowadays. I am completely in love with the brilliant performances and the way the story flows, Mera Yakeen has to be Sarmad Khoosat at his best. Seema Munaf has given us characters that are easy to relate to and all the actors fit in perfectly in their respective roles.

Maha finally decided that it was time for khala to go….well good for her, it is nice to see a woman taking a stand for a change without being worried about what the relatives or the husband will feel about it. It was the right decision and I am glad Maha did what she wanted to despite of Asfand telling her that it would be highly inappropriate. Also, it was good to see Maha telling khala and Tabinda the exact reason for them being “kicked out of the house” rather than making false stories. The nurse tells Maha about her medical condition and Maha’s reaction couldn’t have been more aptly portrayed. Asfand assures Maha of his love and sincerity again repeatedly but it is not that easy to convince Maha for obvious reasons. Asfand was right in asking Maha that would she be searching for other options if Asfand was bed-ridden but the fact is that in our society the wives are expected to look after the husband and most of all be there for him till death even if he is bed-ridden. When it comes to husbands the standards are shockingly different. Everyone would feel sorry for a husband who is tied down with a wife who is paralyzed and the society would expect him to remarry. Asfand’s decision to fire the nurse because of her unprofessional attitude was the right thing to do, until now Asfand has been the perfect husband in all ways possible.

Maha thinks Nazish’s life is perfect but it is nowhere near that, but Nazish was doing a great job of making the most of her troubled life until Shehnaz lost it when her mother gave the family “gangans” to Nazish…so it is not just about power but also about money and materialistic things. Faiz has really disappointed me, he should have snatched the knife from his sister rather than divorcing Nazish. Nazish is expecting and she did not even get a chance to tell her husband. This last scene was brilliantly done and the episode as a whole was extremely well directed. I wonder if the divorce is final since Nazish is expecting and Faiz only said it once.

Mera Yakeen to me is a complete package; a story that keeps you hooked, performances that leave you spell bound and brilliant direction. Hats off to the entire team for a job well done. I have very high expectations from this play and am definitely looking forward to the next episode.

Mera Yakeen – Episode 6

Posted by Fatima Awan On September - 9 - 2012 4 COMMENTS

Mera Yakeen has been very well directed till now, hats off to Sarmad Khoosat not only for a job well-done as far as the direction is concerned but I totally love him as Faiz. I have never liked Sarmad Khoosat more in any other character. The casting is brilliant and all of the actors fit in perfectly in their respective roles. The story is moving gradually but every episode gives details into Maha and Nazish’s life that are needed to develop the characters in a way that the viewers can relate to them. Maha’s state of mind; the depression, crying, shouting in anger or frustration and yearning for how things were is the perfect portrayal of a woman who is finding is extremely hard to cope with everything that has happened to her. Savera Nadeem does complete justice to her character, yet again and I completely forget about Zubeida when I see Maha on-screen, that is a HUGE achievement. Faisal Qureshi is equally comfortable in his character and does a brilliant job of adding a reality touch to his character, his fans of course expect nothing less from him. Nimra Bucha’s character is superbly etched out and she does a magnificent job of bringing it to life on screen.

This latest episode, like I said earlier showed how Maha is finding it hard to deal with her present condition. For me the biggest development in Maha’s life was Asfand shifting his things out of the room, he obviously did that out of respect and love for Maha but Khala’s jubilation and Maha’s dialogue that gradually he will move out of her life did say a lot. For now Asfand continues to be the perfect husband, who is trying to make things as easy for Maha as is possible and reassures her of his love every step of the way. I could not help but wonder that why can’t the nurse sleep in the living room and Maha could keep a bell alongside her bed so she can ring it whenever she needs her, since the sole reason for Asfand sleeping in the other room is the nurse being present in the bedroom. Khala and Tanzeela are upto no good and I have a feeling that whatever they are planning will increase Maha’s insecurities and may strain the relationship between the husband and wife for sometime. Asfand however has proved to be very wise till now so I am hoping that he will be able to deal with the situation. Maha’s repeated refusal to meet Nazish is a little bothersome. She has been friends with Nazish for so long, she should know that Nazish is the last person who will judge her but yes Nazish’s “counseling” can get annoying. Talking of counseling, why can’t Maha get some professional help to deal with the depression and frustrations in a more healthy way? I hope someone will think on those lines, otherwise she is going to go deeper into depression. With her sister gone, she feels more lonesome.

Even with a Sister-in-Law like Shehnaz Nazish manages to make the most of everything and Faiz also gives whatever love he is allowed to give his wife under the circumstances. Faiz could have proven to be a perfect husband…sigh what a loss! Nazish’s relationship with her Mother-in-Law is admirable and I am glad she didn’t prove to be as rigid and controlling as her daughter.

Those of you out there who enjoy a drama with a lot of good performances to its credit should definitely be watching this show. I am thoroughly enjoying the performances and the direction in particular.

Mera Yakeen – Episode 5

Posted by Fatima Awan On September - 2 - 2012 12 COMMENTS

I must start by saying that Khala’s character maybe highly cliché but it has certainly added an interesting twist to the story. Our society if full of opportunists like Khala, who will see something good for themselves even in someone’s misery. But I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this new twist in the story and am looking forward to how Asfand deals with the “vultures”, oh sorry I meant to say relatives in his house. Ghazala javaid had to be the perfect choice for playing the conniving Khala.

It was good to see that Maha has not completely gone into depression just yet. I really wanted to see some more of the Maha we saw in the first two episodes; one who likes to be the boss and take charge. The way she tells the nurse and the housemaid how she wanted things to be was actually nice to see because any woman no matter how bed ridden she is can exercise some kind of a control as long as she is present in the house. Maha’s concern for her children was very aptly portrayed, although it would have been even better if there were a few scenes of Maha with the children. I find Ali’s character very interesting, some may say that he is too young to be the way he is but I have a feeling that this kid will have a bigger role to play in the upcoming episodes as the story progresses. Both the child stars are doing a commendable job. Maha may be bed ridden and may get insecure every now and then but she definitely knows that she has a strong bond with her husband, which is there to stay. Her trust and faith in her relationship is evident from her confidence.

Nazish is still struggling to figure out just where she stands in Faiz’s life, even after his repeated assurances that he holds her very dear, she cannot be very sure. Sarmad Khoosat is spot on as the confused husband who does not know how to choose between his wife and his sister. Shehnaz will leave no stone unturned to get the point across to Nazish that she has the last say. Faiz could have been the perfect husband if he did not have a manipulative sister like Shehnaz, I actually feel as sorry for him as I do for Nazish. I may have said this before but I must say it again that overall Nazish maybe a very docile, accommodating woman but she is not the kind of woman who will not share her insecurities with her husband and that is what I really like about her character. She does not leave the viewers thinking as to what is going on in her mind but comes out with whatever is weighing on her mind. So she is not exactly the I-will-bare-it-all-with-a-smile sort of a character that we usually see in plays. I must say that Nimra Bucha and Sarmad Khoosat share amazing on-screen chemistry and made me go aww several times… How cute was sharing the same cup of tea part, I have not seen that before.

This was a very interesting episode, so yes I was definitely pleasantly surprised at today’s developments. A part of me was expecting the play to get very slow and depressing but it managed to hold my attention and I am definitely looking forward to all the gharilo politics, clichéd as it maybe.

Mera Yakeen: Episode 4

Posted by Fatima Awan On August - 23 - 2012 4 COMMENTS

There were no new developments in today’s episode; the viewers got more of an insight into how Maha and her family are coping with her condition. On the other side we saw more of Shehnaz’s unjust behavior towards Nazish and the way Faiz turns a blind eye to everything that is happening around him because he “chooses” to be helpless. The first half of the play seemed quite slow but I thought the second half was far more interesting.

Maha came back from the hospital and in my opinion the welcome her kids gave her was rather odd because usually kids are very curious about things and would not leave their mother alone for a second if she came back after so many days, irrespective of her condition. Maha’s sister’s reaction was all wrong too, she should have been all smiles telling Maha everything would be fine and meaning it! But she was standing beside her the whole time with those painful expressions on her face. One thing that was absolutely spot-on was Asfand’s Khala’s reaction. I remember many such visitors visiting me when I was in the hospital once for a minor surgery. People are more inquisitive and nosy when visiting a patient than concerned and genuinely sympathetic. I could totally relate to Maha wanting to change and look presentable before the Khala came to see her, she probably knew only too well the purpose behind Khala’s visit.

There were times when I thought that Nazish was totally being a door mat but then there is simply no other way to deal with a person like Shehnaz. Nazish was right in saying that it is impossible to please Shehnaz but Faiz will not have it any other way. People like Shehnaz are not just control freaks but also highly insecure; her insecurity shows in the way she makes sure that Nazish is not dressed up when her husband comes back home. Although I really do not like that a wife is expected to look her best before the husband comes back from work. After all men come back from work and change into something comfortable, why can’t women dress up the way they want too also? Is home like an office for wives? Where there is a dress code especially when the husband is around? I know all this is somewhat out of context but since there was such an issue between Faiz and Nazish regarding her appearance, I could not help but give my opinion!

Overall, today’s episode started off on a slow note but was captivating enough later on. My only fear right now is that this play may get too slow or depressing; honestly speaking depressing I don’t mind that much but slow can be difficult to sit through.

Mera Yakeen: Episode 3

Posted by Fatima Awan On August - 15 - 2012 6 COMMENTS

While Maha lies on the hospital bed feeling hopeless and despondent, she cannot help but wonder if her life would not have taken such a hideous turn had she not told the beggar off by telling her “muje kisi sahare ki zarurat nahi hai’. Surely what Maha did was not so horrendous that she has to pay such a big price for it but it is only natural for her to feel the way she feels. I thought Maha's reaction was very appropriate. Anyone in her place, whether they were outgoing or not would have felt this way. Maha woke up after her accident to a new life that she is not willing to face. The way she  shut herself from the world said so much about how she felt, not knowing if her friends wanted to talk to her because they were concerned for her or they pitied her. The confidence Maha had in her relationships seems to be shattering, when she told Asfand “muje logo se khof anay laga hai”, I could totally understand her fear. She is too afraid to answer people’s questions and to tell them how her life has changed, too afraid that whether she will be accepted or not. The only person Maha wants to be with is her husband, the only person she looks forward to seeing. The reason is very obvious; she knows that Asfand loves her and does not doubt his love for a second. Asfand faces a hard time coming into terms with the shocking news but is committed to standing by Maha’s side, hoping that she will ultimately recover.

What happened to Maha , has shaken her to the core and she is already thinking of how life used to be and it might never be the same again. The two scenes from Maha’s past were very appropriate; the one where Asfand’s asking her to wake up and she would much rather sleep. In my opinion this particular scene suggested that she had the choice to get up from the bed, start her day, live her life but she would much rather sleep…will she ever have that choice again? Also it showed how her husband pampered her throughout her married life, will things continue to be like that? The other scene where Maha tells Asfand she wanted to go out because she feels suffocated in the room said a great deal too. When will she ever be able to get up and go out again? The dialogues, screenplay and Savera Nadeem’s acting was commendable and I could easily relate to her insecurities and fears.

On the other side, Nazish found out soon enough that her husband even with all his good intentions was helpless(obviously because he chose to be so). Faiz made it very clear to Nazish that she had to live her life according to Shehnaz’s wishes since she brought Faiz up like a mother so he owed her his life and happiness; how I hate this logic! Why do men like Faiz get married in the first place? Nazish’s mother is very worried for her and wonders if she is happy. A little late for all that don’t you think? She should have done her homework regarding the boy’s family before marrying her off. Her concern for Nazish after she got married scored no brownie points with me.

Overall, today’s episode clearly gave the viewers an insight into Maha’s reaction to her condition and I thought all of it was very well-done. It does not seem likely that Maha will ever be what she used to be, she has lost the will to go on and is not ready to accept the new changes in her life and rightly so too. I hope Maha is out of the hospital soon so that things move on and the play retains its pace. Definitely looking forward to the next episode.

Mera Yakeen – Episode 1

Posted by Fatima Awan On August - 1 - 2012 29 COMMENTS

As far as I am concerned, Mera Yakeen already had an ace up its sleeve even before it started. Any play with a leading cast like this should be something to get excited about; Faisal Qureshi, Savera Nadeem and Nimra Bucha ALL in one play, now that is what I call a stellar-cast that is bound to knock you off of your feet. Savera Nadeem and Faisal Qureshi proved in “Qaid-e-Tanhai” that they share a palpable chemistry and there is no questioning the fact that they are absolutely brilliant performers. Apart from the cast there were many other reasons for looking forward to this show; Sarmad Khoosat, the director, a well-acclaimed writer Seema Munaf and the very promising promos in particular. A&B Productions and Faisal Qureshi seem to be teaming up more often now and every time they have something substantial to offer. Babar Javed did wonders as the director of “Qaid-e-Tanhai”; I was very eager to find out what he and his team had in store this time around. My excitement for “Mera Yakeen” aside each review will reflect how I felt about a particular episode.

Today’s episode introduced the viewers to the main characters and while there were some parts where I had the ‘that’s been done before’ feeling, overall this first episode was a complete package and I especially enjoyed the well-written, aptly delivered dialogues. Mera Yakeen is the story of Maha (Savera Nadeem) and her best friend Nazish (Nimra Bucha). Maha is happily married to Asfand (Faisal Qureshi) for more than seven years or so. Maha’s life is ideal in every way possible, so much so that she cannot help but question all of it being real. Asfand is the perfect husband, who remembers anniversaries that Maha forgets, showers her with compliments all the time and one could tell by their discussions that Maha shares every tiny detail (especially about Nazish) with her husband. I found that very relatable, I know so many “best friends” like these. Maha considers herself much prettier, luckier and superior in every way possible than Nazish. She almost enjoys belittling Nazish every chance she gets and it seems as if it is something that does not strike as odd to Nazish, probably because she accepts the fact that Maha indeed is better than her in every way possible. Savera Nadeem’s portrayal of an arrogant woman who thinks that the world revolves around her was extremely persuasive. I thoroughly enjoyed the tingling chemistry between Maha and Asfand as they went on and on about Nazish and the different ways in which the two saw her. All the scenes were extremely well-done, whether it was Maha brushing her hair or the kids playing in the background while the couple “gossiped” about Nazish, each scene was different from the other and apart from the dialogues, it was the direction that caught my attention. Needless to say, I have complete faith in Faisal Qureshi and I know that this versatile actor will deliver in terms of acting and get-up as well no matter what character he is playing. Maha’s obsession with Nazish is very understandable; she is an “aam shakal ki lrki” who would gladly accept the sari Maha thinks is not good enough for her, having a friend like that must be a big ego boost for a person like Maha.

Nazish’s circumstances and life is totally different from that of Maha’s. After years of waiting, she finally gets married but it turns out that her husband is not the least bit interested in her but was actually forced into getting married to her. I especially liked the way Nazish comes out with everything she wants to say to Ahmer( Farhan Ali Agha ) even though he does not make her feel welcomed in his life for a second even. The way she tells him to leave things on halaat and waqt and also when she tells him he should not have gotten married in the first place. Ahmer, who wants to marry an American, is not swayed by Nazish’s pleas and leaves for the US few days after getting married. A year passes by quickly enough (gladly) and Ahmer, just as expected marries Cathy and has no intentions of coming back. Nimra Bucha is another actress who is an all time favorite and she totally won my heart as Nazish. I especially liked the Mehndi scene, Nimra Bucha’s expressions were adorable and the scene where she tells Ahmer to leave things on wakt and hallat. Although, this role seemed somewhat similar to the one she played in Daam and Ik Nazar Meri Taraf but it is definitely different in more ways than one and I just can’t wait to see more of her.

Overall, I enjoyed every minute of this first episode and cherished every scene. I might just watch it one more time before the second episode goes on air, it proved to be a breath of fresh air and I am definitely looking forward to more.
