And so Bin Roye ends…
The first episode of Bin Roye got me all excited. I had read the novel but hadn’t seen the movie so I was really looking forward to it. It just had to be too good.
But it wasn’t.
Now, it wasn’t actually bad but not as great as I imagined it to be. The wrap up/last episode was a delight to watch as Saba got the happy ending every one had been waiting for but the previous few episodes left a lot to be desired.
Mahira khan owned the role of Saba. Saba was immature, stubborn and just too real to be a fictional character. Mahira khan’s flawless acting made her a lovable character. Although, if not done right, she would easily have become the anatogonist instead. And, how can someone look so pretty all the time!
If only mahira khan could have played the role of Saba, only humayon saeed could ensue the charm of irtiza. He can still any girl’s heart skip a beat. Irtiza was calm, loving and very handsome… And humayon saeed made it all look so effortless.
Bin roye showed us two cousins, irtiza and Saba, both loving each other. But it Irtiza’s love for Saba was completely platonic. However, for Saba, Irtiza was her whole world. She found it impossible to accept he could marry some one else, and she could not even hate his wife. Mahira khan nailed all the scenes where Saba was shown being torn between these emotions. In the heat of the moment she ill wishes her sister and keeps blaming herself for her death a few years later. Unable to forgive herself, she feels disgusted when she finds herself married to Irtiza few years down the lane. Her confession towards the end and how slowly and gradually Irtiza starts loving her as his wife is shown beautifully.
It’s not very easy to pen down such simple yet beautiful stories. Farhat ishtiaq did it but the director(s) ruined it by altering the story in unacceptable manner. The story itself was perfect, it didn’t have to be different from the novel at all. In fact, every thing going against bin roye drama is what had been changed from bin roye ansoo novel.
For now, let me just be in the hang over of how awesome mahira khan and humayon saeed look togather and wish they would be cast togather in another project really soon.
