Ladies and gentleman! Pakistani Dramas are back.. Those of you who thought that we won’t be able to match the quality of Daastan, Daam Vasl, or Malaal, I hereby declare all of you (including myself) wrong.
After Daastan, and Daam ,to some extent, I had lost interest in Pakistani Dramas, Even though I own this website ( Dramapakistani) I wasn’t interested to write any review, simply because no drama in recent time made me put all my work to freeze and watch a entire episode. However this one is different, this really is.
Even though just one episode is hard to say anything about how the drama will shape up, let me be honest, I have never experienced such energy from any serial for a very long long time.
Khuda Aur Mohabbat is a love story between 2 people from entire different background, different class and different society. The story revolves around the ages old conflict between religious ideology (Khuda) and human emotions (Mohabbat). Khuda aur Mohabbat is for everyone who has ever loved. Yup that’s the tag line right from the very start. Khuda Aur Mohabbat( Her Mohabbat Kernay waley kay naam).
Hammad aka Maddy ( Imran Abbas) is a son of a rich politician he belongs to a family of Rich , Elite and Rulers. He is a spoiled Brat who has always lived life like a king. But deep down beneath he is a rebel, he doesn’t want to follow the same routine as most of his elder brothers or family norms would want him to. Yet he is confused to the core. He belongs to the wealthiest of family. You know, as we karachite say.. “The other side of the bridge”.
So why is it that I am all WOW about this Story, doesn’t this sound like an everyday story? Well yes kind of, however what really elevates the story is the fact that He starts getting attracted towards a girl who belongs to a complete different class. The girl who doesn’t even show her face . And the only part of her body that is visible is her eyes. Interesting, isn’t it? Well yes for some of you it might sound just another story. But what made this drama standout the most is the terrific Direction of Anjum Shehzad.
I will have to be really really honest on this.When I watched Daam and Daastan I thought that, this is it. The only good serial that can be made would have to be by Either Mehreen or Hissam hussain. Because, in all honesty the other directors aren’t really up to the mark. Baber Javed tries really really hard however he just doesn’t have the grip .Atif hussain is just mediocre. But boy was I wrong.
How many of you remember the character “Bobby” from the serial “Family Front” . Yup here’s our director mate. Anjum Shehzad. What made me all wow about his direction was the fact that he doesn’t waste time and doesn’t drag the story, Narration is tight and the screenplay is really fast. Add the wonderful dialogues and we have a serial that is going to win all the awards this year.
This episode had some really terrific scenes. In fact right from the very beginning till the end , every scene is crisp and takes every breath away from the viewer. However I would like to mention the Scene when Hammad looks at Emaan for the very 1st time. All he could see was her eyes, but that very scene showed how brilliant of an actor Imran Abbas is. Okay, we’ve seen Imran pitching in a sincere act in his earlier serials, but Khuda Aur Mohabbat should catapult him to superstardom. Imran takes a really big leap with Khuda Aur Mohabbat.
The other scene which deserve brownie points is the entire sequence when The 2 girls want to pray in Imran’s house and no one knows where the direction of kiblah is and when Imran watches the girl praying, he is stunned, He is not accustomed to have seen such things in his house, he is surprised at the same time, is feeling the energy that is attracting him to a girl whom he doesn’t even know.
Khuda aur Mohabbat is going to be one hell of a serial, This Serial is only going to get popular with time,
The only thing however that might not work in its favor is the timing. All of us are caught in Cricket fever now and I think Khuda aur Mohabbat might not exactly get huge viewership right from the very start because of cricket matches being telecasted at the same time, however gradually and slowly it will emerge as victorious.
Do you self a favor, Watch Khuda aur Mohabbat..
If you have ever been in love, This Serial is for you.
