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?
Ok, so safeer in the drama serial is a bigger coward and liar than he was in the novel. he got his girlfriend pregnant and then disowned his own child! he had the audacity to emotionally blackmail his girlfriend into getting an abortion!! he is such an a**. I feel sorry for Sonia who will soon be getting married to safeer (and then for saba too who will also be becoming his wife later; apologies for the spoiler).
So in this episode, Saman and irtiza have moved to USA and saba is trying to get back to normalcy. she is torn between her love for her sister and irtiza. on one hand she is very happy for Saman to be happily married (and pregnant) and on the other hand she feels pangs of desire as soon as she sees irtiza.
This episode too belonged completely to Mahira Khan. it won’t be wrong to say that bin roye depends heavily on mahira khan’s star power, her performance and her beauty (sans make up). I was quite happy to see a few scenes of other actors too. finally humayon Saeed got a few scenes too. but I was very disappointed with the dubbing of some of the scenes.
I’m hoping the story will move forward at a faster pace as its become very slow now. but perhaps it’s the calm before the storm…wouldn’t say more so as not to give away the story

Mahira khan! oh yes! Bin Roye is all about Mahira Khan. her beauty and her amazing performance is what Bin Roye makes a treat.
In this episode, Saman got married to Irtiza and although saba had been ‘pretending’ that she has moved on, she hasn’t. all her emotions came out pouring after Saman and irtiza got nikohofied. mahira khan was more than brilliant in that scene. saba’s dadi was there to witness it all but she let her cry her heart out. Saba cursed Saman several times during her outburst and it hurt her dadi. her dadi is like her best friend who knows her deepest, darkest secrets. on the other hand, safeer’s mommy is looking for a rishta for her son and she has saba in her mind. however, safeer himself is in love with a Hindu girl he met while he was studying in USA. safeer, being a coward agrees to get married to saba and does not have guts to leave his girlfriend either. safeer’s mommy has proposed saba via her dadi and her dadi has asked for a little time. meanwhile Saman and irtiza have found happiness in each other and they seem to be enjoying marital bliss.
This episode was all about Mahira Khan as I mentioned before. she not only looks stunning, her performance is on point too. the song was a delight to watch. however, I am not too happy with performances of other actors (except for dadi who is phenomenal). humayon Saeed and armeena Rana khan look good but they hardly have any expressions on their face. when humayon Saeed should be looking intense, you can actually see him smiling. Armeena Rana khan cannot act!! Please someone tell her that all good looking people are not good actors too. The shadi night scene was anything but romantic! And why are saba’s parents and her brother not being given much screen time? I fail to understand that.
Anyway, I am definitely loving it for mahira khan. I never knew she could act so well.
