Cinematic Delights: ‘Burns Road Ke Romeo Juliet’’s Journey Begins

Enter the world of ARY Digital’s Burns Road Ke Romeo Juliet – written by Parisa Siddiqui and directed by Fajr Raza, where the name itself hints at a cinematic vibe. This fictional tale unfolds with a lighter touch, offering sentimentality and situational humour at first glance. But brace yourself, for beneath the surface lies a whirlwind of family drama. This love story not only tugs at the heartstrings but also sheds light on pressing social issues.

Captivating Karachi: The Visual Appeal of the Drama

While it’s true that we can’t judge an entire book solely by its first chapter, the debut episode sets the stage to captivate its audience from the outset. One standout aspect that immediately grabs attention is the remarkable set design, coupled with impeccable lighting and creative cinematography. The shots of the road and doorways transport viewers to the heart of Karachi, yet somehow evoke a reminiscent charm of Lahore. Shot against the backdrop of the historic Old City Area of Karachi, the tale mesmerizes with its breathtaking visuals.

After acknowledging the contributions of Fajr Raza and the team, let’s delve straight into the storyline.

Joint Family Dynamics and Love Across Classes

Iqra Aziz and Hamza Sohail steal the spotlight as Farhad and Fareeya. The storyline paints a vivid picture of love blooming between two bachelors, shedding light on the disparities between middle and upper-class lifestyles. What’s intriguing is how both Romeo and Juliet belong to joint family setups, each with their own unique support systems – Farhad with his doting Amma and Fareeya with her supportive father. The storyline brought back memories of Geo Entertainment’s Mannat Muraad with Iqra Aziz and Talha Chahour leading the pack. Just like its predecessors, this series dives into the realm of class differences, echoing the theme of Ehram e Junoon. While it’s not obligatory to showcase these disparities, viewers can’t help but relish the situations they bring. We couldn’t resist smiling at the adorable accident scene that happened in the first episode, which led to the first encounter between our love birds.

Iqra Aziz and Hamza Sohail’s Debut Delight

Iqra Aziz and Hamza Sohail’s chemistry really spiced things up in this tale, especially since it’s their first time on screen together. That hospital scene where Fareeya visited Farhad and prayed for his recovery? Heartwarming stuff. And Hamza’s character? Adorable, making sure his cousin didn’t drag the cops into the accident. Fareeya’s advice to her cousin, urging her not to cave in to the unreasonable demands of her in-laws, was spot on and much appreciated. But let’s get real – some scenes felt a bit too much, like when the heroine was riding a bike, handling situations like a ninja, and being as sensitive as Cinderella while looking pretty as Jasmine. We’d prefer to see more mature heroines who lead like pros without any apologies. Still, Farhad and Fareeya’s chemistry clicks nicely, thanks to their conventional charm.

And the icing on the cake? Soch the band’s OST ‘Tera Deewana‘ was an absolute gem. It’s such a joy to see our beloved Razia, aka Shaheera Ijlal, back on screen. Now, with our lovebirds are in love, the anticipation is palpable. Let’s see where their journey takes them next.
