An interesting story that began with much excitement soon faded into a repetitive plot during the past few weeks and just ended with a less satisfying, but nonetheless it-kinda-makes-sense finale, it was thrilling to watch Ahad Raza Mir, Sajal Aly and Adnan Siddiqui in breakthrough roles in Yeh Dil Mera.
Now we do understand that Anna, played to perfection by Sajal Aly could not bring herself to be with Aman as she did not trust him and he did turn her happy world upside down, but perhaps after a few years it could have been shown that she does decide to give them a new chance and move ahead by putting the horrific past behind. Because we are suckers for happy endings and Yeh Dil Mera refused to give us that.
Ahad Raza Mir more than just surprised us with his perplexed role and abundance of emotions, Sajal is always a delight to watch, Adnan Siddiqui portrayal of Mir Farooq Zaman was both enigmatic and mysterious, and Paras Mansoor was a great supporting cast. We don’t think anybody could have played these characters as well as they did! Either way, we’re going to miss our weekly review of Yeh Dil Mera.
Farhat Ishtiaq is known to leave hints for something more to come, however, we do feel that Anna and Aman’s story did come to a mature and practical end. Despite everything, Anna may not have wanted to return to Aman, which is why she needed time to cope with the truth and figure her way out.
Here’s a final thought on the last episode of Yeh Dil Mera.
MIR FAROOQ ZAMAN’S DEATH
A man who was so brutal and committed murders without even a bit of remorse did not deserve such an easy death. What could have been better was seeing him pay for his crimes by going to the court and facing charges for his sins so Anna could see that it wasn’t just Amans family or her mother which he killed but also included his second wife Sahira about whom Anna never knew about and that would have made Mir Farooq the character one to remember for a long time as the audiences would see that no matter how powerful you think you are at some point in your life you do have to pay the price for hurting others.
WHERE WAS FARHANA?
Having stuck with Anna while she discovered the truth, it would have been nice to see her with her only niece as she tackled life all alone and perhaps give her a little motivational speech which would help her to lead her life instead of disappearing altogether as soon as she learnt that her sister was killed by Mir Farooq.
AMAN & ANNA GO THEIR SEPARATE WAYS
The strength of the drama have been the way Ahad and Sajal played these two complex characters with ease and where Anna has lead a privileged life with a love of a father , Aman on the other hand had a miserable childhood and we honestly felt that he deserved a better ending where for a change all he saw was happiness and that too with Anna because what Mir Farooq did was not their fault and they did deserve to lead their life happily at the end by perhaps giving out a message that the children do not have to pay for their parents sins.
FINAL THOUGHTS ON YEH DIL MERA’S FINALE
Over all, the last episode we felt also lacked in the editing department especially where Aman and Anna are facing each other in the snow. The dubbing for that particular scene was off as there were snippets put together in a rush which even a lay man could sense and again that is not something which we expect from an ace director like Ahson Talish. Dissatisfied, but okay, I guess.
Having begun on a good note, the thriller / romantic Yeh Dil Mera was a promising project which faced turbulence midway and continued to do so till the end but despite that glitch we hope to see Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly back again in a Farhat Ishtiaq script as the trio are a brilliant combination whom we could never get enough off.
