Yeh BILU, BILU kya hai... Yeh BILU, BILU?
Last week I was rather cheesed off. Why you might ask? Well because of the jadoo-toona, wazifay-wala Babaji. This week Jamat-e-BILU (read: Team BILU) gives us a story so far fetched even those illusive Mohabbat ka Farishtas would find this a difficult pill to swallow (side note: Mujhe bhi Mohabbat ka Farishta bhaij dain).
I still don't see why we needed a Babaji (and please feel free to correct me). I'm all for desi twists and turns but common sense dictates that Bunty I Love You wasn't the place for this particular turn.
Oh well, one can wait and see. Point is do I really want to wait and see...?
This week there's more of the same old, same old. Dania's obsession with Bunty continues unabated, Zain remains as deceptive as a slithery serpent, Beenish is being set up for mohabbat road kill, and Bunty is stupider than I first thought. Move over Romaisa there's someone to take your crown!
In a game of double-cross and dagahbaazi it is increasingly becoming difficult to figure out who's on who's side, who's good, who's bad, and I wonder if we can even think within these compact categories. Bunty is playing to Zain's tune and at the moment giving Dania what she wants, Dania - as untrusting and well-aware of mard ki fitrat as she is - just happens to believe him with a pinch of salt making one wonder where's the love?
Beenish, on the other hand, is the only one playing to her own tune (but if the trailer is to be believed she's in some deep, deep trouble next week!). Abdul Samad happens to be the chuppa rustam, he's on to something but question is what is it? He lies to Dania, he obviously know Beenish, and he even shoots Zain (there goes my reason to watch this series). Kyunnnnnnnnnn?
Let me take a moment here to elaborate. There is much in this series that I find difficult to digest: Why is Bunty a six-year-old girl in front of Zain all bed par lait kar phone par gup shup? Just give them a room already, please and thank you. Why is Zain pimping out his girlfriend? I mean what happened to the desi hero who'd rather die than see his lover's character being uchalooed in public. Why is Babaji so interested in Mehvish ko paisay "kyun diya thay" (exactly my question Babaji)? Aur Bunty kya cheez hai bhai? Hamay bhi bata do.
As if all that wasn't difficult I am now accosted by a good looking dalal. See I could stomach Bunty and Zain being in cahoots with each other and taking Dania for ride (with reservations of course!), hell I'd even be fine with them being lovers, but what I find wholly despicable is using a woman as a prop, and that I did not expect from HUM TV. Of course, they've done it before with Sameena Peerzada's character in Mera Naseeb yet it doesn't make sense here. Moreover, it reeks of cheap thrills, something I can expect from other channels but not HUM TV.
I will confess I liked this story but do I like where it's going...? The answer for now is NO
Allah'Talah nay farmaya hai ki jo sabar karta hai woh shukar karta hai. Mein umeed karta hoon ki humaray sabar ka HUM TV shukar manaye ga. Ussi hawalay say Dania ko apnay saat din kay sabar ka phal shukar mananay kay satth milay ga.
Agalya haaftay thak.
