We’re back with the actors/actresses who delivered the best performances this week. Whether it was a villain, a heroine, or a hero – what made the role stick? Who set the screen on fire, who made us cry, who made us smile … Let’s take a look at the winning performances for the week!
1. Sana Javed
The new villain on the block doesn’t scream, shout, or engage in emotional drama, yet she is more lethal than any other villain currently on screen. Sana Javed wins our vote on controlling tone, voice & expression to belt out a stunning performance – guess we all know which scene we’re talking about in Episode 16!
2. Azekah Daniel’s
Portrayal of Minaal’s resolve & the bumpy emotional ride that Amal makes her go through with perpetually loaded dialogues was fantastic. Azekah delivered prize expressions as Amal emoted her feelings (craftily) on the night of the wedding. Not just that, but we are really wondering now what’s going on inside that pretty little head of here. MInaal is keeping her thoughts to herself – hoping to see more of her in coming episodes!
3. Yumna Zaidi
Sumbul & badaltay rung – each one impresses us. She delivers baghee jazba – the planner in Sumbul & then the simple larki who wants to escape, has endeared us deeply. Yumna not only speaks with her eyes, but her body language conveys volumes and we just can’t get enough of her … as she spring sus a surprise in every episode!
4. Faryal Mehmood
Insha ka dard for her mother & father is so real yet not overly jazbati or dramatic. We loved the matter of fact performance with a hint of sarcasm & pain. Faryal Mehmood conveys the no-frills character that is Insha in simply delivered dialogue with excellent flow. What we love most? It’s the manner in which her character has developed, the way she now finds sympathy for Sakina’s plight – despite feeling for her mother – we feel you Insha, and that, is a job well done!
5. Iqra Aziz
To deliver the craziness of Ameera, Iqra has stepped out of her comfort zone without caring if she is looking good, or a certain way. We applaud Iqra for that, she has convincingly conveyed the many nuances in Ameerah’s character. From the moon phat dehaat ki larki to the quick-thinking, sprightly young girl who seems to be crushing on an older man – Iqra Aziz is gifting us quite a watch…keep going Ameerah, we hope you come out a winner (but not with Maqsood Sahib)!
6. Maya Ali
Wah Maya jee, kiya khoobsoorat dhikhaya aap ney, Rakshi ki dabi huwee cheekahin & dard, kay Faizullah kay liyay uski beti ki marzee important honee chahiyay Maya Ali is giving us a quiet Rakshi, one who does not shout out her love from the roof tops, but rather, in silent, weeping manner, at the bottom of the stair case, or in her room. Her broken chooriyan tell the story of a crushed spirit – rooting for you Rakshi!
7. Sheheryar Munawar
That scene when his mother tells him about the inkaar from Rakshi’s father… Aslam ko yaqeen nahin aa reha tha, he was in pain & he didn’t know what to do… what a super performance! Sheheryar’s larkharaana, that look of utter disbelief, mirrored his dismay and shock – totally nailing it Aslam – super performance there!
8. Neelam Muneer in Qayamat
Ifra qayamat hi laah reehee hai with her adayen. The baghi & bold haseena, Ifra is portrayed with utter perfection by Neelam Muneer One minute we see her bold (and beautiful) side as she takes on her mother in law & Rashid with cutting sarcasm & bravado, next minute, we feel for her situation as she struggles to make sense of the madness around her! Neelam you are adding life to Ifra – bechaargi and courage rolled into one!
