Honestly not liking Nabeel and Romaisa's relationship thus far. Nabeel can't share anything with her comfortably..and neither can Romaisa extract anything from him...Nabeel can't even share anything with her because she's just dumb. And, whenever he DOES ask her anything she either has a stupid reply or talks about sitaray.
Mikaal is a much, much better actor than Sanam Jung..and I can easily say I enjoy watching him at this point than Jung. Romaisa's character is easily the most annoying female character written by Umera..and I hardly find Umera's female protagonists annoying...either Umera got it wrong or Sanam Jung did.
Special mention to Adeel - he's doing great as well. He looks amazing.
I really like(d) Nabeel, and I wish Rumi's character had shown more development, so we could have seen something more real between them. They are so different and lack that relationship that should exist in a marriage. Like you said, Nabeel couldn't, even if he wanted to, share anything with Rumi because she's too immature and naive to understand. The sitaray and fish were starting to piss me off, no lies there.
And yes, Mikaal is spectacular! And I will repeat that Sanam Jung is mediocre at best, but some people have a tendency to go on a long rant every time that obvious fact is mentioned.
Umera Ahmed's female protagonists are generally very strong girls who know who they are, I feel like this is one of the few times that she has written about a girl who doesn't know who she is, doesn't know what she wants from life, and perhaps the show will be her journey as she discovers who she is - undoubtedly, Nabeel has changed her in many ways. I hope Rumi will learn to stand up for herself, first to her Khala and then to her in-laws.
And when do you not think that Adeel looks amazing? Huh? :P
I wish Romaisa had better characterization/development/everything else too..if that even makes sense.
I can't even understand how Umera Ahmed wrote such a weird, female character. As you've mentioned..Umera's female protagonists very different and unique..moreover, they at least have some substance. They're at least understandable. I have no clue where Romaisa came from.
By far, the worst character written by Umera IMO..and I say this as an ardent Umera Ahmed fan. Moreover, Sanam Jung is indeed mediocre at best. I said this a few pages ago,..that Romaisa is a lousy character to begin with especially when you keep in mind Umera's potential...on top of that, Jung's acting abilities aren't helping either. Sometimes, brilliant actors bring out the best in the most absurdly written characters. Do you think if Sanam Baloch played a Romaisa, it would've been the same as Sanam Jung playing Romaisa? Heck no. The nuances that Baloch uses to portray her characters make a huge difference..she could easily make this current portrayal of Romaisa ten times much better by merely using HER craft as an actress. While watching Sanam Jung's monotonous, confused expressions as Romaisa I can't help question whether she's confused? scared? helpless? out of it? zoned out? stupid? innocent? lost? in the moment? It just annoys the hell out of me.
It's gotten to a point where I really don't know who's worse...the actress or the character? that's where you know something's wrong.
LMAO - I know the sitaray and fishes were really annoying. Here you have Mikaal trying his level best as a performer..but then you have such a weird character in front of Nabeel..that I wasn't enjoying Nabeel-Romaisa's scenes. And, then I couldn't even understand Jung's expressions at times...which just made it worse for me. To give Sanam Jung some credit, she's much better at emotional scenes than she is with the whole bubbly/naive act. She's way too monotonous with the latter.
I hope to see Romaisa's character develop..I mean I'd like to think the circumstances she's in and has been in, should teach her a few things about life? I feel Nabeel's character has tried helping her grow but it wasn't enough I feel.
Yeah! I do think Mikaal was great as Nabeel..to be honest, I wasn't feeling him as Nabeel in the initial few episodes but with every episode he did better..and I think in the last few episodes before Nabeel dies - Mikaal was doing really well. I wish he had a stronger actress opposite him because this was one of the few romantic/positive characters Mikaal has attempted in recent times..I just wish Nabeel wasn't opposite a Romaisa or perhaps a stronger actress was paired opposite him? Idk...all I know is, I enjoyed Mikaal and Mansha's scenes a lot more because I think Mansha has been awesome as Alia!
c'mon Adeel does look pretty good in this serial!?
..but yeah, you're right..I always think he looks amazing...never thought otherwise.
