Bin roye (review) Episode 11-16

Back home, back to life, back to normalcy… And back to watching dramas!

So a lot has happened in the last 6 episodes. Saba got married to safeer, the biggest loser in the history of pakistani drama. He did not have guts to inform Saba before they got married but because he is the most honest person on the face of the planet, he confesses about his first marriage. As Saba is angry with herself, she thinks that Allah is punishing her jealousy towards saman. She convinces safeer to keep it a secret from everyone else and promises him that she will stay with his mom in pakistsn like a good sanskari bahu while he can enjoy his American dream with his wife and kids. Safeer ko aur kya chaiye. Sonia jaisi wife aur Saba jaisi naukrani. After a year or so, irtiza seems to be the only person in Saba’s family who starts getting suspicious as to why safeer and Saba are still not living together. After little investigation he finds out that safeer is married. He informs the whole family and Saba’s family gets her divorced. Meanwhile Saba keeps protesting that she wants to stay  married to safeer. After the divorce, rather than taking Saba to a psychiatrist, they marry her off to irtiza (wtf!!). Saba is still angry with irtiza and herself and rather than doing some counselling, irtiza is dragging her around the whole house! It’s rather pathetic that these scenes are being considered by the makers although it can be conveniently considered domestic violence.

All in all, I am disappointed with how the story has been handled. The deviations from the novel have actually worked against the drama. Dadi knew nothing about Saba liking irtiza or her bad dua for saman and that was better for the overall development of the story. Now it doesn’t make any sense why dadi is so clueless over Saba’s reactions. Also, why are Saba’s parents absent all the time..! If zeba bakhtiyar and javed shaikh didn’t have enough time for this project, some other actors should have been signed and their scenes could have been redone. Their absence sticks out like a sore thumb.

From the promos it seems it’s going to be bin roye’s last episode this Sunday… And the torture will end.

So are also still following bin roye?
