Bandhay Ek Dour Se binds friendship, love and relationships in the first episode

A new drama serial Bandhay Ek Dour Se joined the realm of Geo Television last night— garnering interest from Ahsan Khan, Ushna Shah and Hina Altaf’s fandom.

Bandhay Ek Dour Se is a presentation of the country’s leading production house 7TH Sky Entertainment owned by the dynamic duo Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi.

The first episode opens on a conflict between a middle-class joint family that had parted ways a year ago after living under the same roof for more than two decades.

Ahsan Khan features as the lead character, Umar, who is quite determined that bringing a truce between his family and his aunt would pave the way for his marriage. Which brings us to think of his love interest. Ushna Shah then graced the screen as his cousin and best friend, Maheen. Although his family suspects him of having feelings for Maheen for he is usually speaking in her family’s favour, the doubt soon loses its weight when they find out about her engagement to another man. Making his kindhearted cousin his object of affection, however, could have made things easier for a person like Umar who never seems to lose hope.

But his heart belongs to someone else. Here we are speaking of Roshni who happens to be Maheen’s neighbor. Only to see one glimpse of her, Umar finds opportunities to visit his aunt, Zakiya, and her children despite the family clash.

This is where Hina Altaf and Ahsan Khan’s onscreen chemistry come into play. One of the scenes that was teased in the promos also appeared in this episode, showing Umar take a leap from one roof to another to meet Roshni. Given that it takes two hands to clap, their relationship comes with its own weak dynamics aside other complications. He will soon realize that he isn’t the only man who meets her on the rooftop.

Prior to that realization, Umar invests all his energy to resolve his family’s clash with his aunt. In this, Maheen also proves herself as a true friend by helping Umar meet Roshni. And as for how Maheen is as a person, she is quite compromising and finds happiness in the little things in life. On the contrary, Maheen speaks her mind.

However, the liveliness Ahsan Khan has brought on the screen is unmatchable. From helping his mother in the kitchen to giving his grandmother a shoulder massage, Umar really knows how to turn things into his favour.

Saba Faisal has bagged a significant role as Umar’s mother who seems to give a tough time to everyone in the family, especially her widowed sister-in-law Zakiya (played by Saba Hameed). However, Umar finds himself schooling everyone in his family on how to behave with Maheen’s mother so she can be a rishta negotiator between Roshni’s mother and his family. Ali Faizan has also done justice to Faiza Iftikhar’s screenwriting with his directing prowess and displayed each detail in a timely fashion.
