Kankar Episode 21 – Heading Towards A Happy Ending?

Kiran’s reaction to Adnan’s proposal was nothing short of a very pleasant surprise for me since I was not expecting Kiran to react in this manner. Kiran deserves to be happy and there is no other man who can give her the kind of affection that Adnan can. Having gone through a very traumatic experience already, Kiran has her doubts about the authenticity of Adnan’s claims but is willing to give this relationship a chance because she has always had a very high opinion of Adnan. Apart from that, these two always shared a special connection. Kiran always felt that Adnan was merely looking out for her all this time, but now she knows better.

Arzoo got rid of Kiran’s parrots, convinced her mother that it was okay for Kiran to get married to Adnan and left no stone unturned to convince Sikandar that Kiran wasn’t the ideal woman he always thought she was but the fact remains that Arzoo has not been able to fill the void left by Kiran in Sikandar’s life. Sikandar’s attitude towards Arzoo maybe cold and rude but he has not hit her yet. The reason for that could be that he does not feel the need to control her. He is not as possessive about her as he was about Kiran. Or maybe because this time around his mother made it very clear to him that she is not going to back him up if he does something like that. Arzoo’s attitude made me wonder whether she was putting on an act because she loved Sikandar or only because she would do anything to prove Kiran wrong.

Adnan let Rukhsar stop him from getting married to Kiran once but this time around he did not want to lose Kiran for a second time. It was quite apparent that Rukhsar could not stand the fact that her brother was dying to get married to Kiran. Rukhsar’s attitude shows how jealous she is of Kiran. Also, Rukhsar’s situation goes to show how working women are exploited especially in lower middle class households. The only time when I felt for Rukhsar was when she was having a conversation with her colleague. Rukhsar is very sensitive about her own problems but does not think twice before judging others. The way Rukhsar’s mother praised her daughter’s in laws and assured Faiqa that Rukhsar was very happy was rather ironic. She always had so much say when Kiran’s mother did the same and wondered why she couldn’t be honest.

Kiran and Adnan’s conversation was sweet and touching. Hassan Niazi and Sanam Baloch have amazing on-screen chemistry which makes their track totally lovable. The honesty with which Kiran and Adnan share their true feelings with each other was truly refreshing. It is plain to see that Rukhsar and her mother are bound to create problems for Kiran. How will she cope with the situation?

This latest episode was very slow for my taste. Kiran’s story is moving forward nicely but Arzoo and Sikandar’s track is getting very monotonous. The play really needs to pick up pace now so that the story can be wrapped up decently without putting the viewers to sleep.

    I <3 Adnan and Kiran

  • Hina

    I hope the story wraps up soon and they dont start showing problems with Adnan + Kirans relationship

  • Sadaf

    Nice review Fatima. I liked hassan Niazi and Sanam too . it was a very sincere sweet scene . The more I see this Sekander character the more I hate him . In an Ideal world Sekander would marry his true match as in Rukhsar . I felt not one jot of sympathy for Rukhsar , she knows her husband’s finacial situation why shouldn’t she help him . She is the worst of characters . As to Faiqa , sadly such women are so common ,they can never fear Allah . I think this drama is good but it could have been better .

  • Kiran

    Kiran was absolutely right that Sikander will never ever change, and same thing is happening with Aarzoo now. Kiran and Adnan will spend their life happily while ignoring Rukhsar and Kiran’s saas attitude but they will forget as time goes on. But Aarzoo and Sikander both of them will go with same situation as earlier with Kiran. Good Writer, One dialogue very appeal to me of Sikander’s Mother that “insan hi samjh lo”. Really as a Human Being Sikander really doesn’t matter others feelings, he only thinks about himself. Now Aarzoo realize that Kiran was right as taking Divorce. Izzat Nafs se barh kar kuch nai hota, or agar koi insan wohi na karta ho to uss ke sath life guzarna waqai na mumkin hai, yaa to bardassht karlo, agar nai to phir …………….. everybody knows…….. waiting for next episode.

    Nice review. Kiran & Adnan scenes were really nice. As you said they share a special connection, being cousins and friends they have a special bond, it has been shown beautifully. Sanam Baloch & Hassan Niazi’s acting is so natural. I laughed at the part when he said ‘abhi tum se shadi kar leyta hoon, phir tum achi larki dhoond kar us se meri shadi karwa deyna’, he made a serious scene light with humor. Glad they are getting married in the next episode, heading towards a happy ending. Hope Rukhsar/Phopo don’t create any serious issues for Kiran, they looked pretty upset at the engagement.
    Sikandar’s flashback of Kiran & him eating ice-cream showed he was a different person when he was with Kiran. Does that mean he hit Kiran because he loved her, what kind of love is that. It was ironic how Arzoo complained to her mother-in-law when Sikandar scolded her. Such petty things happen between couples who goes and tells the Saas, Sikandar did not confront Arzoo later. Kiran did not tell her mother-in-law when he hit her, she saw the bruises and even then Sikandar was mad at her at talking to his Mom about it. What a sharp contrast in behavior, its hard to believe he is the same person.
    Rukhsar’s working and Adnan telling Kiran he would never make her work; are they implying that husbands of working women don’t care for them to let them work, which is not true.
    This episode was slow. Hope the story moves on a faster pace in coming episodes.

    I really wanted Aarzoo and Aarzoo mom to suffer and Sikander beating up Aarzoo too so both mother daughter’s ego finally ends but here Sikander is all goody goody, what double standards! I hope Kiran and Adnan stay happy 🙂

    Great review, yes drama is directing towards happy ending, kiran and adnan will get married, but it looks rukhsaar and her mother will be hostile towards her,and there will also be financial problems but only soothing thing for her in the relationship will be respect of adnan for her. While sikandar and aarzoo continue in the same way despite having children.

    how mean aarzoo a true reflection of her mother, at one end she convinces phuphoo for engagement of adnan and kiran, and on the other uses the same engagement to create negativity for kiran in sikandar’s mind.

    “Rukhsar’s situation goes to show how working women are exploited especially in lower middle class households”, your observation is very true, its first time one can feel sympathy towards rukhsaar.

    a great flaw in script, kiran parents repeatedly said they are happy on the second time proposal of adnan, when did adnan send proposal for first time for kiran? He did talked to his mother but rukhsaar stopped them and they never ever send proposal before. If he had send proposal then, kiran must have been aware of his love and affection.

    Hope they will finish the drama in maximum two more episodes.

    Fatima Awan! I admire you for your enthusiasm and commitment to write this review and so well.
    Today’s episode brings into prospective difference between Sikandar and Adnan and their concept of love. Sikandar is shown thinking and dreaming about Kiran and in spite of ignoring Arzoo, she is in the family way. That tells you a lot about the man. Whereas, Adnan just worships Kiran!
    It’s praise worthy of Kiran to accept Adnan’s proposal because of his being genuine and not on a rebound, after Sikandar.
