However, Mansha also loves Wahab and is the only choice of Wahab’s mother for Mansha to be her daughter-in-law. Whereas Maya (Mansha’s best friend & Amrit’s step sister) has fallen in love with Wahab as well and would do anything, go at any length to have him as her own.
+ High Points
i – A warm welcome to Shameen Khan as Amrit, to TV industry. She definitely made her mark with this lead role and performed good as innocent sweet sister. Other Honorable Mentions: Tanveer Jamal, Ajab Gul and Sabahat Sarhandi.
ii – Entry of Ajab Gul was a good choice as to play one of the main supporting roles. He is one of the well-known and great actors of our film & TV industry.
+ Low Points
i – The main plot starts very similar to Pakistani TV soap series Sangdil (2016) but then the story changes into being very simple, slow and drags unnecessarily. After 6th episode, the interest level started to regain from 35th episode which is a shame to see how many waste of episodes came in between.
ii – The subplots are as lame as the main plot.
iii – The characters are mostly written as annoying and boring.
iv – Below average quality tech guys (BTS team) hired to do the job
v – This soap series score is not good at all.
vi – Makeup & Hairstyling is so-so.
vi – Rare to see some good fresh faces.
If being dull, slow and a number of pointless episodes starts to pile up which isn’t obnoxiously loud enough, Amrit Aur Maya makes sure to get in a category of forgettable soap series as well.
