Pyar Ke Sadqay Episode 24: Yumna Zaidi Steals the Show As Mehjabeen
It is difficult to put this review into words. This is the kind of episode that is an emotion, a “mood.” To put it simply, that mood is misery. Up until now, Abdullah (Bilal Abbas Khan) has been a very…
Jalan Episode 3: Minal Khan’s Nisha Sets Her Sights on Asfandyar
