    Umrao Jaan on Geo

    Today they showed episode 2 of the drama Umrao Jaan on GEO t.v.

    Was anybody fortunate enough to watch it?

    It's an old story, but I am just so impressed with the way it is being told in this version. I like the amount of detail which was not shown in the movie version, particularly the trauma Umrao goes through when she is kidnapped and the effect it has on her parents. I love the little girl who plays Umrao cause she is so convincing. Poor thing, kidnapped then told she isn't going to fetch a good price cause she isn't fair when all she wants to do is go home. I found all the acting so far to be very convincing.
    Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

      I haven't watched the film yet. I did get to see tonight's episode. Although it looks well directed and detailed, I just don't have the patience to watch slow dramas. Probably, when they start showing kotha dances I might get hooked then.

        she goes from being a dark child to being gori chitti ... typical. My folks found that amusing.

        Funguy, have you been watching the videos they have been showing from this drama since Geo started? There are some fab songs and dances, although Sadia Imam (I'm guessing she is another kidnapped child) does not know how to dance .... it ended with Umrao grown up dancing so you won't have to wait long. The songs and dance sequences begin next week.

          aww im so jealous

          although the girl in this absolutey gorgeous... (shes noor jehans grand daughter haina?), i reckon they should have stuck with a dark skinned girl.. like ummm vaneeza for instance..

          sadia imam was once kali... now she's fair

            I know what you mean by this transformation from kaali to gori. Folks in the West ridicule Michael for his color change but they don't realise that we in the subcontinent are the pioneers in this field. I mean what other countries sell creams which make you look whiter?. Stillman's, Amex are just to name a few. We are not a racist society - we are worse.

              ^ i actually used stillman in pak (for like 2 days) thinking it was normal cream!

              sorry for derailing the thread mehnaz... just wanted to add, singapore is another country which sells mainly whitening cream instead of normal moisturisers.. my friend was there and came back looking white.. she hated it

                Actually she remains a little sanwali. The gorwn up umrao is not any snow white either..but not as dark as they show her in her childhood.
                FG what are you doing memorising all these gora creams for??? Amex???

                  You think so FF? She looked fair to me. When they show her as an old woman, there she seems a bit darker. Anyway, it's alright Sadzzz, derail as much as you like.

                      Yeah I have Sadzzz.

                      I think it has to do with hormones and blood levels, or something like that. I also know somebody who was quite dark when she was younger, but had all sorts of menstrual problems growing up and it caused her to go fair. Go figure!

                      I'm really looking forward to the rest of this drama. The main hero dude is quite good looking.

                          Yeah. Actually, I think he's the same dude from Anarkali: Supreme Ishq. Did you ever catch that? I love all this moghul era stuff ... it's so ... classical ... elegant .... sad and tragic, yet romantic ... *sigh*

                          I want a gharara.

                            Yes Mehnaz. I saw the whole play on tape about a month ago. Aamna Bano does a superb job with her acting. The girl is exceptional.

                            As for the gharara I have been drooling over this rajistani sort sharara lately. one that some one put up in iamge3. I sooo desperately want to have it
