There always been a perception that guys don’t watch Dramas. Or if they do they might be considered sissy, we are always considered emotion less with no feelings. So what it is that makes a guy watch a Pakistani drama? I am still clue less. I recently asked few of my friends if they watched Khuda aur Mohabbat and to my astonishment, every one of them is following it from the very 1st episode. Is it the aggressive marketing? The billboards that we see on the roads? To be honest I dint see any billboard of Khuda aur mohabbat on Shah r Faisal… Every other billboard is filled with “ Lawn “ adds J rest are filled with Humayun Saeed’s Production.
Khuda aur mohabbat has this unexplainable sort of attraction in it. Which I am unable to understand. May be it’s Imran Abbas, or maybe it’s the Title song which ,is in all honesty, has been sung beautifully by Ahmed jahanzeb. Or maybe it’s the new girl..But what I honestly think is working for khuda aur mohabbat is its wonderful story and direction.
Generally you don’t expect a drama to achieve this much success right from the 3rd episode , there is no Faisal Qureshi, no Humayun saeed, No sanam baloch., the drama isn’t from Mehreen Jabbar aur from Hiassam hussain but in all honesty it has become the most watched drama in recent times. And this makes me come to a conclusion that Pakistani viewership is intelligent, they don’t fall for flashy stuff, and they don’t want foreign location. They want a good story with sincere performance.
Khuda Aur mohabbat is a working well only because of the wonderful story and brilliant direction.
If we look at episode 3, there wasn’t much, but it kept us glued to the screen as if it was Pakistan Vs Canada match J . I think Anjum Shehzad Really deserves applause because of his treatment to the script and how wonderfully he has handled the sequences between Hammad and Emaan.
Episode 3 was all about Hammad’s 1st Interaction with Emaan. The way he looks at her at the wedding the way he explains about his situation to his friend over the phone simply makes the viewer feel sorry for him, he has fallen in love with the person he shouldn’t have. He is going crazy after a girl he knows he can not have. So what will happen now?
The scenes that are worth mentioning are the last 15 minutes. The way Imran looks at Emaan in the library, The way he gets nervous is something that leaves the viewers bedazzled., and right at that point the episode folds up … what a shame isn’t J well all we have to do is wait for next Thursday and see what happens, and I can tell you that next week, it’s going to be a hella of an episode.. I think the drama will rise to new heights from the next episode…
Oh btw… the girl playing Imran’s sister is a complete waste… I mean come on , this much over acting??? Khuda khofi keroo yaar… why is she acting anyway? I know she is not reading it, but If she is.. Please do yourself a favour… stop acting and doing something constructive.
PS : Pray for Team Pakistan… I know its too early to predict anything and we should not keep any expectations.. but the way Our team is playing…. “ Chance tou hai”
