Lamha Lamha Zindagi Review by TVKahani.com
Saeed, Sania Saeed, and Ayesha Khan are three of the biggest names of
our drama industry, and when they come together it is bound to make
people take notice.
Lamha Lamha Zindagi that started airing in the
first half of 2010 on ARY digital has gone through many ups and downs,
and this reviewer is going to review the show with a hawk's eye.
Lamha Zindagi is the story of two sisters Tazeen(Sania Saeed), and
Sabeen(Ayesha Khan) adopted by their uncle Murtaza(Sheryar Zaidi), and
aunt(Naila Jafri) against their children wish Aashi(Natasha Ali), Shafaq
& Shahmir(Danish Taimoor).
Story:- The story shows the
difficulties these sisters have to go through. Sabeen falls in love with
Shahmir who is a flirt and divorces her right after the nikah –after
going abroad, and Tazeen who is engaged to Saad(Humayun Saeed) has to
face difficulties when Sabeen is absent mysteriously, and everyone
thinks she has ran away with someone.
Yes , a very thin – oh I know
what's going to happen next – kind of story. We agree. The story does
not offer anythng new at all. We actually wonder where the story is.
drama starts on a good note and focuses on the relationship between the
two sisters played by Sania Saeed, and Ayesha Khan. The first few
episodes show the bonding, relationship, and the love. The first major
twists arrive when Damish Tamoor leaves for abroad after marrying Ayesha
Khan-ultimately divorcing her. But, was that unexpected? NO !
a parallel track of Hassan Niazi's family that is very poor, and it
focuses on the problem faced by poor,unemployed men. But, haven't we
seen it already in a zillion dramas? Yes, we have. Does it offer
anything new? No! It does not.
The story moves with Hassan's mother,
and wife dying and he is left alone ultimately falling in love with the
widow(Ayesha Khan) who mysteriously disappears with him.(we won't open
The drama then
extends-extends, and extends. A total of four(+) episodes(YES!) are
wasted with little to no movement in the story. Ayesha Khan's character
is missing for a long time and her sister Tazeen has to face problems
because of her. The drama ultimately ends positively with the evil
getting punished. Oh..how intelligent. NO!
Technicalties:- Well, the
story is the culprit here. There is no story at all to be honest. I have
no idea what such biggies saw in the project to give it a nod. The
drama for the majority of time goes no where with nothing happening at
all. The relationship shared by the sisters is beautiful, and one can
connect to it.
The direction is one thing that is superb. The
director extracts some great eprformances not just out of the principal
starcast, but also the minor actors. Dialogues are okay. The camera work
is good. Editing should've been better.
Acting:- The real power lies
in the actors. When we have such biggies then It automatically attracts
eyeballs, and this is exactly why the show faired well in the initial
episodes but then the lack of response caused the channels to shift the
show to another day.
Sania Saeed takes to her role like a fish takes
to water. She Is exceptional like always. But, at times she looks too
old for her role.Humayun Saeed doesn't get a chance to show his great
acting skills. The drama is totally dominated by Sania Saeed(looks like
it was written for her). Humayun is sidelined mostly and is used as a
prop. Ayesha Khan looks beautiful, and acts sincerely. Her dialogue
delivery is beautiful.
Naila Jafri is phenomenal in her role that has
many shades to it. Greta casting here. She suits the role to
perfection. Danish Taimoor himself doesn't know what he is doing there.
He is merely for few episodes as a filler. Sheryar Zaidi is herself.
Natasha is good, and leaves an impression. Hassan Niazi fails to leave
any mark, and the girl playing his wife wears the same expression
throughout. Aneesa looks beautiful and plays her part believabley.
:- The show offers nothing, and is too long to give it a try. This
proves that you don't just need big names to make something
watchable-but the content itself has to be really strong too. I hope our
makers realize that soon.
Watch it only if you have nothing better to do, or you're a fan of the actors.
