Bin Roye Movie Review
The story starts off on a note where Saba (Mahira Khan), our happy-go-lucky, full-of-life & hopeless romantic heroine is madly in love with her first cousin Irtiza (Humayun Saeed). Irtiza has lost his parents & lives with his paternal uncle & aunt; Shafiq (Javed Sheikh) & Maliha (Zeba Bakhtiyar), who are also Saba’s parents, therefore both Saba & Irtiza share a very strong & candid relationship because they have always been best of friends with each other right from their childhood days. For Saba, her life revolves around Irtiza because he is the only man she has ever been in love with, he is the only man she relies on emotionally, he is the only person she thinks she understands the most, but sadly she has never gotten a hint of that sort from him ever. For Saba, it has always been a done deal that Irtiza belongs to her; therefore she never can foresee that things can also go against her imagination & plans ever.
Irtiza decides to go to the US for 2 years & there comes the character of Saman (Armeena Khan) in the picture. Saman happens to be daughter of Shafiq & Maliha but Maliha herself gives away her daughter to her brother & sister in law right after she is born. Many a times, she often thinks of asking her brother to send Saman back to her, but Shafiq always reminds her of the promise she made & the decision she took herself. Shafiq does understand that his wife misses their daughter, but he doesn’t want to put any pressure on Saman’s adoptive parents because he knows this will discomfort their whole family especially Saman.
There were just so many positives in this movie that I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. I must say it was a time well spent with a perfect direction, perfect script, perfect acting, perfect locations, perfect sets, perfect songs, perfect costumes, perfect makeup & perfect dresses. You for sure will fall in love with the songs & background scores because they added charm to the whole movie starting from the beginning right till the end. I loved the choreography of Ballay Ballay song; Adeel Hussain paired & danced really well with Mahira Khan & made that song a lot more enjoyable for sure. Mahira Khan looked absolutely stunning & I loved her dress in that song especially. I must say the song titled Mahi has to be my favorite & oh, any project of HUM TV can never be complete if Abida Parveen doesn’t grace it with her voice, & that is why the song sung by her was a masterstroke because it complimented all the situations flawlessly.
I am so so so glad that both the actresses Mahira & Armeena chose a no-makeup/natural look because it really enhanced the aspect of reality. Just like how we see in our dramas, they proved it once again that you don’t have to be all dolled up even if you’re in a movie & that is why I really am proud of both Mahira & Armeena for relying solely on their acting because by the end of the day, that is what matters the most. Humayun Saeed was phenomenal as Irtiza & he really lifted the film with his presence. He really gave a perfect face to Irtiza’s character & his acting was actually flawless & when I say flawless, I actually mean, flawless as in on fleek! I must say, all the actors did a brilliant job because the chemistry between the lead pairs was amazing. Humayun Saeed looked graceful with Armeena Khan & his chemistry with Mahira Khan was a treat in its own. Mahira Khan was brilliant as Saba, it really felt like she embraced her character as if it was tailored for her. I really must say that Mahira Khan has evolved so much as an actor that she really doesn’t let you take your eyes off her, her playful & expressive eyes really make you fall in love with her acting. Armeena Khan was sweet & I can’t emphasize enough on how soothing her voice is. She fitted the role of Saman perfectly too because even if she had a smaller role in comparison to Mahira Khan, she made such an impact within what she had to work with that I actually got overwhelmed at her accident scene; which by the way was an example of a perfect & realistic direction for sure. I must say Shehzad Kashmiri really brought out the best in all the actors but there were quite a few scenes that required top-notch acting & oh boy, Mahira Khan nailed it without overdoing anything. Zeba Bakhtiyar just lights up the whole screen & I am so glad she was chosen to play the role of Saba’s mother. Azra Masoor as usual was in her comfort zone for which she nailed the character of Daadi once again & it goes without saying that Javed Sheikh is the favorite father of our industry.
Bin Roye tere bina jeena song
I really feel that Momina Duraid Productions have set the bar really high with Bin Roye & I wish them good luck for all of their future endeavors. Once again, I thank the whole team of Bin Roye for making this movie such a visual treat & a complete entertainment package & I thank Humayun Saeed, Mahira Khan & Armeena Khan for giving their 100% to Bin Roye because I am sure, no one else could’ve pulled it off like this terrific trio did.
I highly highly recommend Bin Roye to all the readers & oh, just in case I wasn’t clear, this for sure is a big screen movie.
