Ohkay so, despite being slow it was a pretty decent episode of Alif Allah Aur Insaan. I liked it for a fact that the original characters went through such events that would bring a change in their lives & it was a high time something like that happened because the story was stagnant from weeks & it wasn’t sparking any interest!
So, Baba Jee passed away & Shahzeb was finding it hard to come to terms with the fact that his guide, his mentor, his friend & his well wisher was no more. For Shahzeb, Baba Jee was everything as he used to turn to him whenever he looked for an answer but sadly, things were now going to change for Shahzeb. The last conversation that Shahzeb had with Baba Jee was basically the crux of everything that he ever taught Shahzeb & that was going to stay with him for the rest of his life!
Nanzeen now came to live with her university friend & there was this new entry which was only added to give Nazneen’s track a closure. Taimur seemed quite interested in Nazneen so I won’t be surprised if they both will end up together. Even though it is too early to say but may be Nazneen will get to live a comfortable life but without the love that she imagined & experienced only for Basit. I know nothing is a done deal but then I don’t see any other reason behind the introduction of Taimur’s character!
So this university wali bacha party became fraaaands again, yayyy & not to be forgotten the samosas & pakoras arranged by Arsalan because it was such an important detail! Duh!
So, just because Reena feared that her daughter Pakeeza will turn out to be like her & it was imperative that she would if Reena’d raise her in such an environment, she decided to let go of her daughter as she realized that she won’t be able to do good by that child. It was good that Nawazish’s wife not only seemed happy but embraced that baby like a mother. Even though Reena made a sacrifice, it was beneficial for her baby girl. I liked how they showed Reena’s struggle to come to this decision because it was like she was at the dead end of everything, she has nowhere to go, she couldn’t return to where she came from & then she also couldn’t stay where she was at, with her daughter, that is why giving it to Nawazish was her only option!
Overall, this episode was pretty decent but I am still not sure where the story is headed & most importantly why? Let’s see if they’ll give this drama a decent ending or not. Oh yes, I am getting put off by the forced philosophy, first that scene of Basit in this episode & now in the preview, Zimmal’s philosophical conversation with Basit about love? Zimmal’s sick obsession with love is cringe worthy especially when she tries so hard to look & sound deep! Please share your thoughts about this episode of Alif Allah Aur Insaan.
