      Maybe its because of the class divide. look at Khirad and Kashaf, both seem to embody the 'poor victimized class' while the villain embody 'rich exploiting class.

      while Khirad was victimised, Kashaf played victimised card like MQM

      Its stereotyping at its worst. Defencewalas are Khandani, baqi sab dhool hai

      becuase PTV is producing stuff worse than 80s Punjabi movies nowadays. In fact, its not producing anything but buying stuff which is rejected by other channels.

      what is so bad about dreaming of marrying a rich spouse???

      first of all any entertainment medium is meant to be an escape route from reality. second, her female character are as strong as the male ones. atleast her script talks more about sharing burden/equality than James bond movies, where bond girl is only a filler.

      third, all her female characters are well educated and all the education they got made them realize that they should not settle for guys who are more than just a BA pass.

      Nothing wrong in dreaming to marry a rich spouse. The problem is its frequent depiction. Take example of Hum TV's recent projects. Dil e Muztar, Hum-Nasheen, Rihai and then this Kankar all revolve around this one way or other. baqol shayar: aur bhi dukh hai zamane main rich family main biyahe jane ke siwa.

      I think Umera's scripts don't talk much about equality but either competition (ZGH) or totally submission (Qaid e Tanhai, MZZB)

      For more than just a BA pass comment, it actually creates an unnecessary idealistic approach in audience who are already exposed to Indian drama's 500 crore spell.

      actually quality stuff does not attract (most) people today, Indian masala and bold theme attacts people and it gives boost to business of private media...

      Sanam Baloch's character is a typical chichori type girl with no self respect or integrity. She uses the desi "flirtation" technique of giving mixed messages to men by acting all masoom yet"chulbuli", talking non-stop about herself while saying "Bhaaaaaaiiiiiiiiii". Such women ALWAYS know what they are doing and know that our pakistani men fall for such cheap charms. when the poor guy DOES fall for them, they act all surprised. ***face palm***

      If sanam baloch's character really cares about her friend as she claims, she should have a clear conversation with the guy where she firmly tells him that she isn't interested. What she did in the last episode almost seemed like an attempt to get his proposal. The squeaky childlike voice, the pouting and the "mujhey aap say shaadi nahi kernee" in a "i am naraz at you, mujhey please manao" tone. and then when the guy asks why? she goes "bus NAHI kernee" in a fake-naraz-and-flirtatious tone(known only to desi girls i think) which screamed "don't take me seriously! send the effin proposal you idiot!". Why can't umera's protagonist be a more level headed and mature girl who people want to take seriously. This character deserves a chappair on her face

      Another thing that "flirty" desi-desi (shehri) girls do is that they start laughing really loudly and flirtatiously around other girls whenever they spot a guy whose attention they desperately seek (if they are desperate girls they will do that in the presence of ANY guy) but don't want to appear "taiz" to the guy. I had a second cousin who used to do that. Any time we'd go to out, she would all of a sudden stop walking and start laughing at something absurd + start talking loudly about herself (for example "mein nay eid pay pink shalwar kameez laynee hai"). There would always be some young guy(s) nearby who would eventually throw his number at her or something and then she would act all "larkay kitnay baysharam hotay hain". If the guy was REALLY cute, she would sometimes contact him but then say stuff like "aap nay mujhey number kyun phainka. log kia chochain gay mein kaisee larki hoon" OMGGGG this is bringing back such YUKKKKK memories back.

      I agree on that scene (kiran saying no to sikander on phone)...it looked like as if she is talking to someone she knows realllly well....sanam's acting is kinda lacking in some places (or maybe this is how she is asked to act).
