Week Review: 22nd June 2021
Firstly, we thank the makers for the fast-paced plot development and story line. We are guilty of admitting that we did snooze in between as we watched last week’s episodes; however, we were most certainly hooked this week! With the fifth episode now being aired, we can say that the story is not like your conventional Pakistani drama (though we are expecting a lot of drama ahead as the love story triangle unfolds!) as it portrays the daily grind, struggles and desires that bind us all together, and at times, make us take some tough decisions!
Reality hits Aima after she leaves her job in pursuit to get hired as a lawyer. Honestly, we did expect better from Aima! Personally, for me it was a character flaw. After all, why will a practical girl like Aima leave her permanent job when she hasn’t secured a new one and that too in a completely new field?
On the other hand
Zain’s track took an interesting turn as his friendship with Sonya developed further. It was refreshing to see that they didn’t show Zain as the typical young guy who will flirt back at the first opportunity he gets. Instead, showing him loyal to Aima despite the rift between them made us respect his character.
Another thing that is refreshing to see in YTHPB is the constant support that Zain has from his friends. The fact that they added this element to the plot rather than simply showing Zain as a solo singer makes the entire narrative more interesting and realistic. Now, we eagerly look forward to seeing what is in store for him as he moves to another city to fulfill his dreams. Meanwhile, we are also anticipating Nazi, (Aima’s sister’s story) to unwrap as she plans to pursue a career for herself.
A little confusion
Something that has had me confused till the fifth episode is, how the makers want to depict Aima’s character. The fact that she is strong and independent make her inspirational. We even feel sorry for her, for the disappointments she experienced as a child. However, her not supporting Zain in his struggles makes us confused. We do understand that she is a practical girl who has gone through enough pain to not to believe in fairy tales, but is it necessary to be this inconsiderate to the man she loves? Or are the makers trying to show that an independent woman does not need a man in her life? Or that education and being career-oriented makes a woman feel like she does not need any kind of support or companionship? Well, we hope that our questions are answered in the episodes ahead and we get to see Aima’s character (hopefully) unveil in a positive light.
Perhaps she too, will walk her journey, and we get to walk it with her.
Till we wait for next week’s episodes here are some YouTube comments from this week’s episodes:
Excellent Pakistani dramas are natural based on real life moments.mohammed saleem
Distance does not matter if you really LOVE the person, what matters most is your honesty and trust for that relationship to work out.Aqsa Habib Ch Vlogs
Realistic drama. Zain and Aima’s character do in their role too good.Z U
I like the pace of this drama. Aima and Sonia come face to face. Story is developing nice. Sonia’s character is confusing me. Is she a positive or a negative character. She is nice to zain but with aima shows grey shades. Overall nice episode for me.Clusters stars
Sonya actress is great especially her acting!! So is Zain, hira, her younger sister. But I love the acting of sonya actress; she is also quite underrated and prettyWinx Club Flora
