I’m going to begin off by saying Hoorain (Aleena) is the star of Bandish; she is totally magnificent. How a 9 or 10 yr previous woman can pull off the stunts she manages is past me. This woman is critically going locations!
That mentioned, eight episodes in, the TV drama is simply getting higher and higher.
Bandish is a narrative of two households; Junaid and Madiha (Sajid Hassan and Marina Khan) and their three daughters – Sania (Hira Mani), Hania (Zubab Rana), and the youngest Aleena (Hoorain). All of them appear to be a contented close-knit household and like all moms, Madiha’s solely focus is on getting her two daughters married. Rishtas come, however one thing all the time goes flawed.Sania really has an assault in entrance of 1 household and is hospitalized. Her physician, Dr. Abyaan (Mani) takes a liking to her and desires to marry her. Hania too is semi-involved along with her pal’s brother Hamza (Fahad Sheikh). Hamza’s father, Izhar Uncle, is aware of the household is beneath the spell of black magic and offers Hania a taaveez to put on for cover, which she provides to Sania within the hospital – that taaveez saves Sania’s life.The opposite household is comprised of two sisters, Sumbal (Farah Shah) and Sandal (Zaineb Ahmed). Sumbal is a practioner of black magic and has three jinns beneath her management. She desires revenge from Junaid for one thing that occurred eons in the past and makes use of her sister to get it.
Learn: This black magic TV drama is a Pakistani horror fan’s delight
Via black magic, Junaid turns into antagonistic in the direction of his spouse and household and marries Sandal. Sumbal has a jinn utilizing a little bit woman’s vessel (performed by Tasbeeha) who haunts the household and the jinn finally possesses Aleena. Sumbal’s complete focus is on destroying Junaid and Madiha’s household and ensuring their daughters don’t get married – therefore the title Bandish.
Issues solely get extra sinister…
Sania is launched from the hospital and comes dwelling. She takes off the taveez and goes to vary her garments, solely to search out all of her shirts minimize weirdly elsewhere, however solely Sania can see cuts, nobody else. The little woman takes the taveez and Sumbal begins her magic once more. Sania will get sick once more and coincidentally, Izhar Uncle was there this time. He’s shocked that Sania isn’t carrying the taveez. That doesn’t in any respect make sense as he had made the taveez for his daughter and Hania, for his or her exams and safety. So why is he shocked that Sania is not carrying it?
Junaid comes dwelling lastly whereas all of this is occurring and Izhar Uncle tells them that their complete home is beneath black magic, which angers Junaid and he begins getting impolite since he doesn’t consider any of that. Aleena has one other nightmare the place she sees a bizarre being on a tree and her home is on fireplace. She wakes up and will not cease screaming. Izhar Uncle to the rescue once more.As I mentioned within the begin, Hoorain is the star of this drama. The adults are all good, however they’ve been appearing for years. Nonetheless, for a 9-10 yr previous to play a possessed character, particularly to start with of episode 6 when she has to play the demon youngster, she is sensible.
She performed her half with extra conviction than I’ve seen many adults do. She throws Sania down and attempting to kill her, then flies on to a tree. Izhar Uncle chains Aleena to the mattress and begins reciting Quranic verses. All the scene is one thing out of The Exorcist (not actually).Aleena methods Madiha into opening the chains after which she assaults Izhar Uncle and tries to kill him; he finally leads to the hospital. This complete situation was brilliantly shot and Aabis Raza has really outdone himself in these scenes. These couldn’t have been simple scenes.
These are pictures the place all the pieces is going on directly; the rocking chair begins rocking by itself, the dresser begins shifting by itself, lamps begin flickering on and off, Aleena is out and in of possession… all of this was so completely shot and edited that I critically can’t consider that is only a Pakistani drama. Factors to whomever did the particular results additionally, as a result of they actually bought it proper!
Sumbal lastly meets Junaid, however in a niqab. At this level one thing necessary is revealed concerning the connection between Sumbal, Madiha and Junaid. Later, Junaid tells Madiha about his second marriage and spouse. When Haniya finds out, she says one thing actually unusual: “Aleena jinn aur baba churail ke kabze predominant hain.” However she would not keep in mind saying that when Saniya asks what she meant by that.
Whereas all of this is occurring, Dr. Abyan desires to marry Sania and his mom even calls Madiha, Junaid goes in a foreign country with Sandal on his honeymoon, and Farzana Khala has a BOGO (purchase one get one) supply of two brothers for Hania and Sania.
After all, that Madiha is even entertaining the considered that is ridiculous. However what’s a desi mummy to do? On the planet of desi TV dramas it appears the reply to all the pieces is getting your daughters married; particularly now that Junaid has remarried.
After this the tempo of the drama picks up once more with an intense standoff between Madiha and Daya Saheb. Once more, effectively executed Aabis Raza and your complete modifying workforce. On this troublesome sequence three very various things had been occurring concurrently, and your complete sequence was easily shot and edited.
With out giving an excessive amount of away, I respect that the drama’s eighth episode did not finish on a cliffhanger, and we lastly bought to know the explanation behind Sumbal’s hatred for Junaid.
All in all Bandish is sheer brilliance. Apart from some minor loopholes, the script is stable, the course equals perfection in each body, and virtually everybody matches into their characters like a glove, particularly Hoorain. How her dad and mom let her play that position is past me.
The woman really hangs the other way up on a tree and turns into a toddler demon, and does all of this with pure conviction. I haven’t but seen a supernatural collection that’s holistically executed so effectively. Additionally, it’s a refreshing change from the identical previous saas bahu dramas. Kudos to your complete workforce!
