I think howzzat posted the promo of Mora Piya in the last FC somewhere, no? Anyways, I wasn't going to watch it since it looked run of the mill and forgot all about it until yesterday MJ posted on her FB page that she saw and liked it. I checked it out for the heck of it and whaddayouknow? It was actually a decent watch, not too bad. I've read of people saying it's filmy and all that (as Geo shows are, surprise surprise), but maybe since I watched a pretty crappy quality video, mujhe toh kuch khaas aisa nahi laga...theek tha. Its one episode gave me a better laugh than all of Akbari Asghari combined together would
Some one liners and scenes were delivered really well.
Two things that I liked about the show: 1) the premise of the lead guy (Faisal) being a journalist, and how the story revolves around threats to his life and family as a result of his profession --- that is a little different from usual, and if this story was in hands of a different channel than Geo, it could have made for a very, very good show based on this concept, and 2) the jazzy background music gives the show a good, quirky and continuous sa pace.
They should have had Mohib Mirza as Faisal and it would have been much better because he can totally pull of that strong journo vibe (hey, like Roag, nahi?) and has a good comic timing too. Anyways, the first episode was decent time pass, aage ke story aur 'tragedy' ka pata nahi!
