I have just finished episode 2 and I can’t stop praising the work of the director in this one, I know it’s a fantabolus novel with a tight screen play. However it’s only the director who has converted the soul into reality. Wonderful stuff
The wedding bliss came to an end in this episode however I just couldn’t stop myself praising the art work and lavish sets this drama has. But more importantly it was the camera work as well the direction that impressed me the most. There are at least 3 scenes which are worth discussing.
The rukhsati scene where bano and Hassan are talking to each other is wonderful. The expressions and the whole effect that the director created were wonderful. It would actually bring back the memories of watching devdas(SRK) and Parineeta. I think Fawad was brilliant in the scene as well as sanam baloch , The expressions and the class that fawad portrays in that scene was top notch, the expressions as well as the reactions by bano were something that only a actor of class would carry out and they both did it with so much ease.
The 2nd scene was when Hassan as well as bano couldn’t sleep because the romance bulid up session they have just had in the wedding. The only thing that was brilliant about it was the way bano wears the duppatta :) I think that was extremely sweet as well as romantic, and we actually kinda miss the shyness and traditions we had back then, in all honesty I think our traditions have always been sweet, and something to cherish about. We don’t find them now adays do we? :)
The 3rd scene is when suriya wakes saleem up:P okay I think that scene was only there to portray the kind of romance they had back then which sounds very very sweet J I am not that old so can’t exactly tell you if that would have really happened to a newly wedded couple but my dad tells me that back then the newlywed bride and groom would actually feel shy to talk to each other in front of their parents :) hahaha…okay let’s not smile about it… every era has something special in it.
However something that I would want to confess and say is, before Dastan I had never seen any of the previous plays of the director. And when I was watching dastan I would say to myself, who is this guy? How long has he been in the industry? Why cuz I am boom dazzled by the direction. This guy is a genius, and I think with this serial, Haissam has taken a really big leap. This serial is a step to superstardom and also will open new doors and vistas for him as director. The execution to the script, the top notch cinematography and a gifted art of storytelling will make this guy surpass most of his peers in the industry and I truly believe that Haissam should direct a movie! Not now may be 4-5 years from now.
The only thing that I would have really wanted the production house to work on were dialogues, I miss dialogues. So far the only dialogue that I have liked in this serial was in episode 1” Iqbal kay khawab say bara koi khawab nahi”. I felt that the interactions between Hassan and bano could have become a classic if there were really really supper dialogues.or may be I am being too hard: P eeee yeah I know I am very very tough but kya keroon aisa hi hoon mein :P
