Dobara – A drama that initially ticked all the right boxes for attempting to normalize age difference in marriage, specifically a man marrying an older woman – a concept that is looked down upon in our society. Dobara took a promising start and fans rejoiced as the storyline was new and sent out a great message. But then, somewhere down the line, the drama fell off the rails.
Waves of disappointment have taken over Twitter after last night’s episode. Fans are heartbroken over Mahir cheating on Mehru with his ex Nermeen. The particular comment about Mehru’s “jhurriyoun wala haath” was the last straw for the loyal Dobara audience. Viewers are dubbing it as poor character development and sabotaging the drama’s message.
Here’s how fans are reacting.
The Disappointment Is Real
“Mahir went from bad to worse to worst. No way mehru and him can be the endgame now, over my dead body! Literally ruined his character and the show’s message.”
“This was such a heartbreaking scene i couldn’t believe he compared them and i am not ready to see Mehru heartbroken ☹”
“Mahir oh Mahir, plz tell me you’ll see reason & not leave Mehru! You can’t go back to Narmeen who essentially dumped you for money! Aap bhi kahi na kahi Mehru se mohabbat karte hai!”
“wasn’t expecting this turn in the drama😑 #dobara”
“What’s happening with #Dobara? After being a very good show throughout its run time. Now it seems a ploy to wrap up the story with some suspense and tension. Whether #BilalAbbasKhan will break #HadiqaKiani‘s heart or dump the girl who dumped him when he was down”
“the “wrinkle” scene set my teeth on edge. I had assumed that mahir was looking at mehru to ground himself and maybe just as a form of reassurance that he isn’t alone. but the way he drew comparisons with jawani, I wanted to hurl something heavy at his pretty face”
“I can’t believe Mahir now , how can he changed after seen Narmeen at a sudden? Kiya Mard pehli mohabbat nhe bhulata in any circumstances. Dobara shown true colors of our society specifically a Men…💥”
“Totally heartbroken after seeing today’s episode of #Dobara …the concept of the drama is completely lost @Humtvnetwork please tell us what you wanted to show in the drama..if you people don’t believe in age difference love stories then why you made it.. totally wasted the topic”
“Todays’s episode was a disappointment!!! Mahir should learn rhe lesson again now I wish he will leave mehru n narmeen will leave him again. #dobara“
“I really wish Mahir goes back to being broke, friendless & homeless. After this cheating thing,even if they show a so called happy ending for Mehru & Mahir, it will not be sufficient. Mahir’s character can’t be redeemed now.”
“Why Pakistani dramas are hell bend to normalize 2 shadiyan these days?
First, #DileMomin, and now #Dobara yes it’s in Islam but ayse bhi nhi k Bina kisi reason hi krtay phiro. And it’s not even about 2 shadiyan. The way Mahir is being disrespectful towards Mehru is just eww!! 😐”
“Now,I started to hate the character of #Mahir in #Dobara…!!A cheater…!!💔💔🙄🙄”
“#Dobara is so messed up. A drama with a promising start is now trash, wtf r they trying to show? And mahir talking Abr mehru’s wrinkles,ughh sooo disgusting! Bilal Abbas deserves better!”
Kudos To Bilal Abbas For Making Mahir So Convincing
While fans are criticizing the turn Dobara has taken, they are also appreciating Bilal Abbas for performing his character with utmost perfect. So much so that we are actually convinced he is Mahir!
“Yesss! Acting bilkul hi zabardast rahe hai shuru se! Hats off to the whole cast of #Dobara! Each character has been so convincing throughout”
Many are speculating that Mahir is just plotting revenge against Nermeen for not sticking by his side. Maybe he is sincerely in love with Mehru? We won’t know until the next episode. Let’s see how the Mahir manages to salvage his character (or if he even can). Till then, tell us what you thought about last night’s episode of Dobara?
