Rant Before The Review
First of all, I want to thank all these great folks right here who steered this drama to me as a result of in any other case, I’d have missed it. Most usually, we find yourself ready for and tuning into dramas that air on one of many 3 main channels. Usually, these channels ship as nicely and among the dramas actually are price watching and reviewing. However, now greater than ever, most dramas actually die down after a couple of weeks and there’s a lot repetition that it places you to sleep. After reviewing Parizaad particularly, I’m discovering it actually onerous to take a seat by many of the dramas which have aired lately and couldn’t even take into account taking them up for reviewing.
I have to admit that I watched all of the star-studded mega tasks that aired on all of the 3 channels and in addition watched the primary two episodes of Dushman earlier than I watched Mor Maharan. I’m extra dissatisfied than ever by the extent of commercialism and lack of high quality content material on tv proper now. ARY has clearly centered all its energies on visuals and is banking closely on star energy. HUM normally has one drama each season that isn’t business equivalent to Dar Si Jati Hei Sila, Ranjha Ranjha Kardi, or Parizaad, to call a couple of. This time, to date, there isn’t a single drama that will fall into that class. Geo has all the time been business; Jo Bichar Gaye was an exception. Dushman on PTV is one other drama that focuses extra on the visuals, costumes, and over-dramatic scenes than one thing extra significant. Therefore, after being dissatisfied with all these dramas I used to be really trying ahead to watching and reviewing, right here I’m reviewing a drama that isn’t picture-perfect, neither wholly artsy however undoubtedly matches the invoice.
There are a number of the reason why I took up Mor Maharan and never the opposite dramas that are undoubtedly getting extra scores and a spotlight. The quantity 1 cause must be the subject material of the drama. Right now the water scarcity in Cholistan and the results of world warming there are the lesser talked about however undoubtedly one of many topmost points dealing with the nation proper now. The incontrovertible fact that it isn’t on the precedence checklist though the folks there are struggling greater than ever makes it much more vital. Taking up any such subject for scriptwriting is a difficult course of since dramas are supposed to be entertaining. Making certain that the precise which means doesn’t get misplaced, whereas guaranteeing that the script is entertaining sufficient, is unquestionably one of many many challenges. When I noticed that one of many co-writers of Jo Bichar Gaye was the one who wrote the script of Mor Maharan, I used to be particularly delighted as a result of Jo Bichar Gaye additionally tackled extraordinarily difficult matters It additionally managed to get all of the messages throughout with the utmost precision whereas maintaining the viewers engaged. After watching these 3 episodes of Mor Maharan, I have to say that the author has been in a position to pen down a script that’s each significant and fascinating.
Another huge problem for any channel whereas airing such a drama is that the majority usually such dramas don’t get scores or views. Most viewers would a lot reasonably watch a drama equivalent to Aisi Teri Khudgarzi than Jo Bichar Gaye and Mor Maharan. This is one more reason why I really feel that this drama deserves a evaluation greater than the others. If it didn’t have high quality content material, irrespective of how distinctive the subject material would have been, I’d not have chosen to evaluation it. I’m glad that TV One airs such dramas as a result of there are undoubtedly some tracks within the story which may ‘offend’ sure folks. Apart from a novel premise, the story to date can also be partaking. The drama will not be too artsy, it’s a good stability between artwork and commercialism. Although, I do really feel that it will have been simply pretty much as good had the business factor not been there.
Relevant and Meaningful
These 3 episodes of Mor Maharan established the primary characters and their tracks convincingly. The story is about in Cholistan and it revolves round the primary stakeholders. It depicts how the longer term generations of various political and influential households wish to change the current scenario. It additionally exhibits how the folks in Cholistan are struggling though the dessert is thought for its stunning tradition and websites.
Rohi is one other identify for the Cholistan desert and the primary protagonist performed by Sonya Hussyn has been named Rohi. I have to give Sonya Hussyn credit score for selecting such a venture. Her character is stuffed with life and is bold. A feminine protagonist whose sole objective in life isn’t getting married and has a particular objective in life is all the time a welcoming change. Rohi’s relationship together with her father Malook Shah (Firdous Jamal) has stood out proper from the start. Usually, you count on folks equivalent to Malook Shah to deal with their sons the best way he treats his daughter. Through completely different scenes and dialogues, the author has proven how a lot he not solely loves his daughter but additionally respects her dearly. So far his character is sort of progressive. His selfies have added a humorous and light-hearted spin to the character. I’m genuinely delighted to look at Firdous Jamal play this character as a result of I’ve not been in a position to heat as much as any of the characters he has performed within the latest previous. Malook Shah is bringing out one of the best in Firdous Jamal, which is the magic of fine writing! Even although he workouts nice affect, to date we’ve not seen him resorting to measures that will present him as a tyrant. One of his dialogues within the earlier episode nevertheless steered that he may need one other aspect to his character. Also, the truth that he has not achieved a lot virtually to alter the circumstances the native persons are dwelling in suggests that he’s maybe like others. But then, he has additionally by no means stopped Rohi from mingling with the locals and has clearly raised a daughter who is basically happy with her roots.
What appealed to me probably the most within the preliminary episodes of Mor Mahan was Rohi’s character; the best way it was written and translated on display screen. The tempo of those episodes was additionally quick. Also, the truth that Sammiya Mumtaz is lastly enjoying the position of an unbiased, educated, and fashionable girl after such a very long time was clearly a refreshing change. Almas’ backstory will in all probability be progressively revealed. For now, she seems to be an clever and type girl. She can also be unbiased sufficient to run a enterprise empire and will get numerous respect from the boys whether or not it’s somebody who works beneath her or has larger standing than her. It is actually good to see Sammiya Mumtaz in a comparatively extra made-up look since she normally performs characters that don’t require dressing up. Gurdezi doesn’t have rather a lot going from him however I like that he represents a sure identifiable class in society and thru his character the author can also be highlighting one other vital subject. Zahid Ahmed’s efficiency has been spectacular to date, he makes you sit up for Gurdezi’s scenes. His delight is clear in each single scene; one thing Rohi seen and shared when she noticed him on tv. The entire dialog centered on sugar that Rohi had together with her mom was considered one of my favourite scenes.
Sikandar’s character is nicely written however poorly acted out. Mustafa Changazi I imagine was chosen to play the position due to his accent. His performing has not improved a lot since Bari Aapa days and I can solely surprise why he was chosen for this position. He nonetheless struggles to offer the suitable expressions and his efficiency is something however easy. Ahad Raza Mir, Uzair Jaswal, Hamza Sohail, and Feroze Khan are among the actors who might have been the right candidates for this position. Babar Ali’s efficiency additionally retains me fascinated by his character; it appears as if Sher Aalam is hiding one thing. There can also be particular chemistry between Almas and Sher Aalam; is he in love with Almas? There are additionally occasions once you really feel as if he’s the enemy! I’m trying ahead to discovering out extra about him.
Mor Maharan is sort of a political commentary but it surely additionally has an fascinating script that saved me engaged all through. Some of the overdramatic scenes might simply have been prevented however even with these scenes, the drama, general, is rather more significant and interesting than the done-to-death situations we’re getting to look at in each different drama. The author’s strategy is to date actually centered subsequently I’ve excessive hopes for this one. Also, particular due to TV One for airing such dramas. If you aren’t watching Mor Maharan, I extremely suggest it in case you are bored with watching run-of-the-mill dramas. It will get higher with each episode and apart from Mustafa Changazi, all the opposite actors are completely suited to each position they’re enjoying.
Do share your ideas concerning the drama in case you are watching it.
