Dobara is not coming slow in highlighting all the issues that widowed women have to face in our society. Read ahead to find out the dialogue of the episode too!
From not being able to wear what she pleases, to enjoying her son’s wedding, to dealing with a son who prescribes a mindset about how his mother ‘should’ behave & dress in public…Dobara is giving us enlightened content, don’t you agree?
Bonus Points For…
Hadiqa Kiani & Bilal Abbas win us with excellent performances. Mahir learning how to do the laundry was a cute moment that brought a smile to our faces.
From wearing bright colours (apparently not to be worn by a bewa) to enjoying herself at an event, to women facing “haw hai” stares, comments & restrictions that not only make life difficult for them, but lead to petty expectations & standards of propriety for widows in society, the drama keeps nudging you. And Hadiqa delivers her character with much grace.
Minal supporting her mom was another.
And The Downside…
We are disappointed at Zameer’s undercover planning – we were hoping to spot a positive character here, but apparently, THAT’S not happening! rom Behroze’s business & transfer them to his own?
Affan & phuppo make a sad couple but one we want to see Mehru tackle. Affan needs a good danda… So glad Mehru told him & phuppo off & also to leave the house if they have a problem with her behaviour. Hadiqa Kiani reflected Mehru’s heartbreak with a performance that reached across the screen to move us.
Why Dobara Has Us Hooked
Writer Sarwat Nazir needs a shout out for a thought provoking narrative and for highlighting the prejudices that exist within us. Director Danish Nawaz has screened it with great skill & sensitivity, once again impressing us with an engaging & fast paced episode.
The beauty of Dobara is that it has a larger theme or message but it also tackles sub- issues that we spot all around us in society.
We are happy to see that both Mahir & Mehroo have no pre-conceived notions about their relationship & are purely supporting each other. Especially the fact that Mahir is genuine in his feelings & not trying to scam Mehroo.
We’re loving Dobara so far, with it’s dialogues, cast and story and are patiently watching as the story unfolds. Until then catch up on our latest Drama Gup here:
