Baaghi – Episode 1 Review

So finally the much awaited drama serial Baaghi is on screen and it is getting huge response from the audience. This drama serial was already in the limelight due to controversies. As it was said before that this is based on the life events of model Qandeel Baloch so producers are fully using this point for marketing strategy. But later we were told that the story is not based on true events and most of the scenes are based on fiction. It was a serious setback for the viewers who were eagerly waiting for it.

Well! The story revolves around a passionate and confident village girl Fauzia Batool (Saba Qamar) who is full of life. She does not let her poverty destroy her dreams and happiness. Instead she always manages to fulfill her wishes. Her father (Irfan Khoosat) defends her despite all the trouble. Her brother (Sarmad Khoosat) extremely dislikes her just like her sister in law (Nadia Afghan). Fauzia has special bond with her younger brother though and their chemistry is beautiful.

Fauzia is shown as a girl who does not believe in the norms of the society. She sings and dances despite the objection of everyone. She is a bold person who believes in dreaming big and does what makes her happy. In this episode the whole focus was on Fauzia’s character which was enacted perfectly but honestly it was not something very unique. Saba Qamar has done such over confident roles many times and this role was not different from those.

In fact the character seemed annoying many times and most of the scenes looked unreal and fictional. Also the story has become very predictable. Well! It was first episode and we have no idea what is going to happen next so we can only hope that the story should be appealing and surprising. Other prominent names include Osman Khalid Butt as well so let’s see what’s his character. The first episode was a little disappointing but fingers crossed for the future ones. Let us know what you think about this first episode of Baaghi directed by Farooq Rind and share your views.
