That was one beautifully directed episode which conveyed the emotions right, every single time. I wish that the story would’ve moved forward & there was less emphasis on the depression everyone is going through. I know the pace is right & everything is perfect but still a little shift from sad times to the happy ones please!
I loved the conversations, everyone’s bigheartedness & acceptance to Aunn’s decision. Even when deep inside they wanted to stop Aunn from moving out of their blessed home, they have stopped themselves, not only themselves but others as well who wanted to burden both Aunn & Zara with the wrongness of the decision they’ve taken. Husna cries on her own, Daadi cries to the point where she is hurt so badly but still they maintain the dignity & show their caliber by quietly being submissive. It was heart-wrenching to see them so much used to the fact that Aunn was still there & called him whenever they felt like. Daadi wanted to ‘phookofy’ after she recited Holy Qur’an & Husna wanted to make sure Aunn eats a freshly cooked meal.
A few bits & bobs did show the progress in the story where everyone on their own took some steps. Shehna has backed out obviously because she is dreading the whole marriage thing in her life considering what her best friend has gone through. I still respect Manzar for staying quiet at first because he didn’t want to reveal the true face of Aunn in front of his prospect wife. He did act like a true friend even when he felt his dream wedding was falling apart but he chose to secure the dignity & respect of his best friend.
Nighat did her bit by visiting Jamshed which might open another way for them to speak to each-other but right now Nighat’s concern was about Zara’s decision which she found out was materialized on Jamshed’s wish. Another chapter of misunderstanding opened but I am sure Jamshed will do everything to take care of the things & especially to clear his name in front of ‘mohtarma’.
I must say that Aunn has crossed all the limits of selfishness. At first he wanted to snatch Zara away from the whole family because he thought he’d do everything to draw her closer to him but just after their first day in their personal space when Zara asked for a cup of tea, Aunn was disgusted but sadly he had no other option left then to tend to Zara because she ain’t well. I think what we predicted is wrong, she might not be expecting but may be due to mental pressures, tensions & no considerate diet she has gone weak. May be she doesn’t say but she is taking things too seriously & over-thinking the situations & for that she is facing a decline in her health.
Ohkay, who respects Manzar even more for all the reality checks he gave to Aunn? I DO. Not only he clarified Sheha’s misunderstandings but also checked Aunn’s shape left right & centre because he is just frustrated by the negativity Aunn has been upto lately as it has effected not only his family but now his friend in some way too. Just a few words from him & Aunn lost it completely because he is so used to the sugar coated, flowery words but all of a sudden when he was exposed to some thorns, he just couldn’t take it. Even though I know nothing can part these bro-like friends but it was only Manzar who could talk to him clearly to set his mind right.
It is sad to see that Aunn has become so selfish that he just can not tolerate anything going against his will & way. A guy who was showered with so much love could stoop to this level is quite frustrating to see. Even now he found it difficult to tend to Zara & that too in just a few hours he had a reality stroke that living away from his family is not going to be easy. Daadi’s conversation reflected how Aunn has taken every thing from his father which she just couldn’t believe herself.
Now I am kind of relieved that Zara will find out about Aunn soon enough & will make things right but I wish she regains her health & spark to tackle Aunn her way. One of the most beautiful scenes was when Husna reminisced of her conversation with Daadi after her husband left. It spoke volumes of what a sane & wise woman can do, how can a woman make or break her home & how many sacrifices one does to earn this level of respect which she has now in the eyes of Daadi & everyone else. What a beautifully etched character.
Loved the episode in bits & pieces but over all I am waiting for the revelations soon & dear Aunn please be ready to face the women avengers.
