This episode can be taken as an introductory note because of the few years gap they have covered. They have once again introduced the characters as some have grown old biologically (not mentally) & the children have matured.
During the episode I couldn’t help thinking of a dialogue from Shehr-e-zaat that said “Hamara ghar jitna bara hai, hamara zarf utna chota”, many times in this episode Mr. Kamal & Mrs. Pervaiz fitted well with this dialogue & have proved that they are self-centred people whose social status has taken a toll on them. Mrs. Pervaiz has left no stone unturned to spoil her children & to me her son Shani seems to be the most irritating character which I shall endure during the series. Urwa Hussain is getting monotonous now & it’s tiring to see her on screen. No doubt she doesn’t lack in her talent but her choice of characters is similar. Same expressions, more or less the same character I guess wouldn’t be liked much. After seeing these two siblings I couldn’t stop wondering is it really necessary to be spoilt if you belong to a sound background?
Finally, it’s good to see Ayza Khan in a much simpler role. After acting like a spoilt brat in many dramas she looks pretty decent in this one. The role may be similar to another one of her projects but here her character is really commendable. She seems like a simple yet head-strong kind of a girl who knows her limits & still wants to reach the sky. After being almost spoon-fed by Mrs. Kamal she still is hesitant in accepting any help from them & mentions it in front of her father that she wants to earn a living on her own otherwise any other girl would’ve taken advantage of the situation. I enjoyed all the scenes that included Zoya because I like her character a lot now.
Ansar has become another Mr. Kamal but the only difference is his acceptance & liking towards Zoya. Mr. Kamals’ sons may be a lot better in comparison to those of Mr. Parvaizs but Ansar for sure has some weaknesses in his nature which we will see in the episodes ahead & have seen already in the promos.
The scene between Mrs. Kamal & Sherry was fine till they were discussing about their routines but the mention of Zoya seemed unnecessary. No doubt the have moved 12 years ahead & Zoya has already shared her feelings with her father that she is sure Sherry must’ve forgotten her by now but the way he asks his Mom “Zoya, Kaun?” was a bad fix. It seemed as if in the last 12 years Mrs. Kamal has never mentioned her in front of Sherry or about her success in her academics or about anything else. Has she never spoken about Zoya in the last 12 years saying “Sherry do you remember your childhood friend who used to go to your school” or anything else because she stays almost in their house? If she was some random friend it could’ve been acceptable but she was his driver’s daughter & I guess any sane minded youngster can still remember their servant’s family or such a close buddy. In contradiction to this, in the other scene we see Ansar mentioning that Sherry & Anam do not get along really well with one another so it’s pointless to appoint Anum in our company because Sherry would soon return. Sherry must not have forgotten her, as she wasn’t even his friend?
Apart from this weak point I didn’t find anything else objectionable & enjoyed the episode thoroughly. Mrs. Kamal is such an elegant woman & I really admire her for her elegance. Mr. Kamal (the character not the actor) continues to disappoint viewers by his sheer arrogance & make us laugh as well by his dual standards because a few clothes bought for Zoya may seem as a burden to him but to show off his status at an inauguration of an NGO is a must.
I have enjoyed watching Kahi Unkahi that too after such a long break & surprisingly the episode didn’t disappoint me at all & we still have a few more characters to discover. However, the main actors are acting really well & seem to portray their characters perfectly. Keep watching while eating the chocolates fromParis. Oops! I forgot we don’t get them inPakistan. LOL!
