Ohkay so, the manufacturing of iDream Entertainment, path of Saqib Khan & the writing of Zanjabeel Asim Shah; drama serial Fraud has positively had the sort of begin that hooked the viewers instantly. Another issue that performed to its favor was the teasers that had been launched that had been intriguing & promising on the identical time. In a typical Zanjabeel Asim vogue, the story has been established fairly shortly & now all that is still to be seen is how the protagonist will combat for her rights after she will probably be confronted with he misfortune by the hands of her husband. So far, the preliminary episodes have proven a great progress within the story & have been a harking back to Cheekh as to the way it saved the viewers guessing about a few of the characters.
Cast & Characters
Maya (Saba Qamar) occurs to be the eldest daughter of Nisar (Mehmood Aslam) & Shehnaz (Nida Mumtaz). Maya’s youthful sister Maila (Rabya Kulsoom) is her strongest help system & performs an essential function in Maya’s life. Although Nisar himself belongs to the center class, it has made him fairly staunch concerning his method for his daughter’s proposals. Nisar comes from a great place although however he has didn’t make the folks round him perceive why he thinks getting his daughters married into wealthy & rich household is essential. Initially it did appear to be he was being irrational along with his method however because the episodes progressed, he did share his causes.
Nisar’s sister Shazia (Nazli Soomro) is a widow & has a son Nayel (Adnan Samad Khan). Maya & Nayel favored one another to an extent that they really wished to get married however in some way, regardless of the love Nisar has for his sister & nephew couldn’t make him change his thoughts in regards to the standards that he had for Maya’s future husband. Nisar has been all the time there for his sister & has been supporting her financially, due to this fact it didn’t take him lengthy to make Shazia understand that this type of monetary situation was solely going to create issues for Maya & this wasn’t the sort of life he wished to decide on for his daughter.
Tabrez (Ahsan Khan) has agreed to the wedding simply & has assigned this ‘project’ to his mom (Ainy Zaidi). Tabrez’s father (Saife Hassan) appears to be taking part in alongside as properly & has left each determination on his spouse. On the floor, this household appears a bit too excellent however deep down, solely they know what they’re attempting to attain.
On the opposite hand, there’s one other household of Shaan (Mikaal Zulfikar), who trusts his step mom (Asma Abbas) & sister Tuba (Naeema Butt) greater than he ought to. Only due to the issues created by his step-mom, his spouse Simra & their daughter Zimmal have left for the USA. She tried her greatest to take him understand all that was mistaken along with his step mom & sister however he didn’t see by way of them.
The Story So Far
Nisar at first did come throughout as a inflexible father however because the episodes progressed, it modified my perspective about him. He is simply somebody who hasn’t been in a position to make it massive in life however doesn’t need that to occur to his daughters. He solely comes from a spot of concern & love for his daughters however sadly, his tunnel imaginative and prescient has deterred him from seeing the adverse facet of the image. Although Nisar himself is a mature & skilled individual, however for him to actually assume that wealth goes to deliver each single happiness into his daughter’s lives makes him look a bit too naïve. The approach he hastened in getting Maya married to the very first suitor that approached him does present that he wasn’t too smart to start with or that he noticed goodness in others a bit greater than he ought to have.
I positively would’ve favored if Maya had one thing going for her as a result of to see a woman lurking across the home windows & doorways of her home, awaiting a proposal as if it was the one goal of her life wasn’t appeasing. I favored how Maya’s youthful sister had much more persona & character although. The two sisters are positively completely different from each other however they share a robust bond. Maya has all the time been the submissive one, that it why she determined to be what her father anticipated her to. Maya did have emotions too however she felt none of it was price standing in opposition to her father for. It is unlucky that Maya’s obedience & submissiveness goes to trigger a lot ache to her & she will probably be left betrayed & exploited, nevertheless I’m eager to see how she is going to bounce again & what she is going to do together with her life. So far, Maya has lived her life as per her father’s needs & he has accomplished all he may to maintain her protected in a bubble, however now when she will probably be uncovered to the tough realities, she is going to discover her potential.
In these 3 episodes, the dialogue that caught my consideration was concerning the ‘project’ that Tabrez handed over to his mom. If you’ve watched sufficient dramas of Zanjabeel Asim, you’d know that she all the time depends on such hints to finish the image, due to this fact for Tabrez to name this marriage & proposal a undertaking was a transparent trace that he & the couple taking part in the function of his dad and mom had been positively in it for an ulterior motive. I need to say Ainy Zaidi’s refined expression on the point out of 20 lacs that Maya was going to get had been spot on. She tried to indicate that she wasn’t affected by any of it however deep down, it was apparent that that is precisely what all of them predict from Maya & her household.
Although I actually like Nayel’s character & Adnan Samad Khan has performed it to perfection, I really feel a few of his scenes had been a bit too stretched. Yes, he positively is affected by a heartbreak & additionally, he feels burdened as a result of for him Nisar gained’t be the identical father determine that he was earlier than, however I felt these scenes may’ve been simply lower brief as a result of I struggled to be attentive for the remaining components of the episodes after seeing his by no means-ending scenes. Nayel has now stepped right into a sensible life & he may even use this heartbreak as a driving pressure to do higher in life, not for another motive however to show himself in addition to Nisar that he was rejected for all of the mistaken causes. Shaan’s state of affairs may be very a lot impressed by the Bollywood film Dharkan, the one distinction is that right here an added step brother has not been included. Apart from that Shaan himself is a good one who is selfless & sort, due to which he has wholeheartedly accepted his step mom & sister. Shaan may even be taught a lesson or two however sadly, it is going to occur when he gained’t be capable to undo the ache & sufferings of his spouse. It appears she has determined to finish this marriage, which is able to permit Shaan to get additional exploited by the step mom & sister.

Mehmood Aslam continues to present one more sturdy efficiency. Adnan Samad Khan too has given a really sturdy efficiency as Nayel. I’ve all the time discovered Rabya Kulsoom a really sturdy performer. She all the time matches in her characters effortlessly & brings lots of appeal to the display.
Ahsan Khan is an effective actor too however I really feel after Fraud, he actually must pause & make completely different selections. This has been a case with Ahsan Khan proper from the start the place he all the time ended up doing related roles. Years in the past he was all the time seen as a hopeless romantic hero & now particularly after Udaari, he has determined to play adverse characters solely. Qissa Meherbano Ka, Qayamat, Mere Humnasheen & now Fraud, I feel Ahsan Khan has positively proven his caliber as a villain, however now particularly after this undertaking, he ought to take one thing completely different for a change. However, it’s price appreciating how he had modified his look to suit the character of Tabrez higher like a tattoo, ear piercing in addition to a lower on the eyebrow. It will probably be fascinating to see what number of appears to be like he’ll change within the upcoming episodes. Fraud positively has all of the components to maintain the viewers engaged & I’m positively trying ahead to the remainder of the story. The manufacturing worth is nice & it positively is refreshing to see a drama set in Lahore, all of the pictures capturing the essence of the life in Lahore had been beautiful. How have you ever guys discovered the primary three episodes of the drama. Please share your ideas in regards to the preliminary episodes of Fraud.
