I still cant believe how such a beautiful yet simple story be ruined like the way it has been here!
Safeer is now secretly married to his non Muslim girlfriend. he also has a 2 year old son and it all happened in I think 4 weeks…while Saman and irtiza were perhaps only unpacking in USA. so Saman got pregnant too and has a son. Saba goes to meet Saman and irtiza where she time and again behaves rudely especially after irtiza’s friend, amir, starts taking interest in her. she rejects amir’s proposal and everyone is baffled as amir seemed to be the perfect guy for her. Saman and irtiza visit Pakistan to celebrate their son’s birthday and it is here that Saman realizes that saba has always been in love with irtiza (a useless realization as she does nothing at all after that, this is also one of the useless additions in the drama as Saman never realizes this in the novel). Saman has an accident and she dies (unfortunately the story only moves forward with someone’s death). Saba is full of guilt and blames herself for Saman’s death and can’t seem to cry (hence the name, bin roye).
The drama has disappointed me to say the least. the story was quite good, simple but powerful in the novel. the choppy editing, confusing timeline and lack of powerful performances (except mahira khan) have turned this much awaited and highly anticipated drama serial into nothing but a series of blunders. I still can’t understand why saba’s mother is never shown talking to her! I have never seen a mother daughter duo who never ever speaks to each other. Dadi is her best friend, I get it but there should have been a scene at least where zeba bakhtiyar was perhaps shown talking to saba!! But I’m glad there was a scene for zafar this time round. And irtiza, he seems to be moving on rather quickly too as it took him several episodes to fall in love but less than half episode to move on after Saman’s death.
all that is worth talking about now is mahira khan and only mahira khan. she looks lovely without make up, just like a girl should look like, with disheveled hair and sad eyes, who has just lost her sister. she looks like someone who is feeling guilty for someone’s death. she looks devastated. and she does that brilliantly. the role of saba fits mahira khan like a glove and I have developed deep respect for this beautiful actress.
Next week I will of course be tuning in to see more of the very beautiful mahira khan. how about you?
