Ehd-e-Wafa Episode 13 Story Review – Different Journeys

Tonight’s episode of Ehd-e-Wafa covered the end of a friendship which is losing its emotional value with every passing episode. Although, all the boys clearly want to be together but the anger and resentment seems to be growing with every passing episode. Saad’s track was relatively more interesting tonight. The opening scene of this latest episode of Ehd-e-Wafa suggested that Saad might rethink his decision but right now, this particular track is clearly going around in circles. Sometimes, it seems like these boys bring out the worst in each other – definitely not an ideal situation! Some of the scenes tonight were meaningful and then there were so many other conversations which could have been chopped down. I haven’t warmed up to Shahzain’s character at all therefore his internal turmoil and ‘tantrums’ only make his character even more annoying. Watching a grown up man act like a spoiled brat isn’t the least bit interesting! Shehryar continues to be the only level-headed character without any issues.

Shahzain’s Ego and Yet Another Fight

Every time these friends have met ever since they left college, their meetings always end with a fight. Even then they continue to meet each other hoping that they will be able to relive the friendship they had in college. Shahzain’s ego and immature approach towards everything continues to be the main reason why the issues between them are not resolved. Until now Shehryar was the voice of reason. He could see that Shahzain was wrong even before but he did not voice his opinion before. Tonight it was good to see Shehryar confronting Shahzain. Ahmed Ali Akbar has nailed his character. His journey too has been quite inspiring. Shahzain is too used to playing the leader, he does not like to be told that he has done something wrong. Shahzain’s reaction tonight once again showed a really negative side of his character. Later on however when his dada gave him the option of getting married to Dua, he did not agree to the plan. While Shahzain’s character is easy to understand, it isn’t appealing in any way and right from the beginning he has been the centre of attention for some reason.

Ehd-e-Wafa Episode 13 Story Review - Different Journeys

Shahzain is clearly an expert at holding grudges and holding other people accountable. He does not like taking responsibility for his own actions even though he too does not want to end this friendship. After the fight, he blamed Shehryar for ruining his image in front of his dada. The friendship between the boys was the highlight of the first few episodes but once they left college, there has been a little too much bitterness between them and the misunderstandings are never ending – definitely not enjoying watching this track. The individual tracks of the boys are much more interesting to watch.

Saad’s Track

Saad’s track and the scenes shot at the PMA have been the highlight of this drama for the past few weeks. Unlike Shahzain’s track, these scenes were more meaningful and they showed character growth. Saad once again showed how mature he was in his approach while interacting with his friends at the PMA. Ahad Raza Mir’s performance continues to be faultless. His expressions tonight were yet again on point. In the opening scene it was quite clear that he missed the friendship he had with the boys. At the same time he once again was shown giving Gulzar the confidence he needed to prepare for the big exam. The actor playing Harris’ role is also playing his part really well. The preview of the next episode also suggested that Saad will give up his place so that Harris can get a chance to go get the international training. We definitely get to see a really different and more likable side of Saad’s personality when he is at the academy or when he is not around his old friends, especially Shahzain.

Final Remarks

Although this episode was strictly okay primarily because of Shahzain’s tantrums but the preview of the next episode suggested that we will get to see more of Shehryar in his own house in the upcoming episode, which is definitely something I am looking forward to seeing. Dua and Saad will finally meet and the cousin will yet again make an appearance which makes me wonder if there is a reason why Dua’s cousin is so possessive about her.

My favorite scene from this episode was the one in which Shehryar hugs the singer after Shahzain breaks his accordion. This was such a meaningful scene since no one could have understood this man’s pain better than Shehryar.

  • یہی پرابلم ہوتی ہے آج کل جب ڈرامہ 15قسطوں میں ختم ہونا چاہیے، اور اس کی 20+ اقساط دکھانی ہوں تو فضول کے سینس بھی دکھانے پڑتے ہیں۔ دادا جب شہریار سے، شاہ زین کے رویے کے بارے میں پوچھتا ہے تو میں حیران ہوگیا یہ سوچ کر کے جو دادا اس کو خراب کرنے کا ذمیدار ہو وہ پوچھ رہا ہے کہ اس نے شاہزین کا یہ والا رخ نہیں دیکھا۔ غصے میں گھوڑا مار دیا، وہ یاد نہیں دادے کو۔ دوسری طرف سعد جتنا mature آرمی ٹرینینگ میں نظر آتا ہے، اتنا ہی unreasonable دوستوں کے ساتھ ہے۔ یہ ڈرامہ شروع سے ایورج رہا ہے، اس دفعہ تو بور ہی کردیا، کچھ سینس کے علاوہ۔

    قسط تو جیسی بھی تھی، آپ کا تجزیہ زبردست ہے۔

    دوسری طرف پی ایم اے کا میچور سعد دوستوں کیلئے کافی نامناسب رویہ رکھا ہوا ہے، فضول میں۔

      • Good for you. But woh bhee din thay jab Army ka dramay ka kuch aur hee level hota tha. Yahan to adha teetar adhar batair bana huya hai aur end result is not upto the mark (at least for me). 😊

    • بجا فرمایا آپ نے۔ پی ٹی وی کا سہہ ماہی سلسلہ بہت زبردست تھا- آج کل کے بہترین کھیل بھی کہیں نہ کہیں آ کر طوالت کا شکار ہو جاتے ہیں اور صاف ظاہر ہو رہا ہوتا ہے کہ بارہا فلیش بیک دکھانے کا مقصد محض قسط کا دورانیہ پورا کرنا ہے

  • The reason why no one has been able to connect to Shahzains character is due to Osman Khalid Butts limited acting and dialogue delivery. Shahzain could’ve been a very real, conflicted character in the hands of a more competent actor. You can clearly see the difference between actors and ‘star’ in the scenes eith Osman, Ahmad and Wahaj. The dialogues are well written and every episode has a memorable one or two but the story is just going around in circles. Hope it picks up pace soon.

  • O mere yaar tu mera pyar, sdaa rhay tu salamat, teri meri ye dosti yoon hi rhy taa qayamat……

    Ufff….. Bchpn mn jb b he sunte thy goosebumps aa jate thay. Tonight again, ek alg hi feeling aati h….

  • This episode was much better than the previous one. Mjy shehryar ka character bht pasnd h. Or story isi trah se aagy brhe gi. Agr yhan sb sai ho jaye to dikhayen gy kya.

    Or drama popular h to drag b ho ga. Abhi to shoot nhi complete nhi hua.

  • Dada ko yaad nhi k shahzain ne ghora maar dia tha ab khuda bakhsh zakhmi ka harmonium tod k use or zkhmi kr dia hai to ye baat nai hai kya?

  • Noce review Fatima, I have totally different opinion. PMA scenes are total bore , the only good scenes today were involving all the friends and Shahzain’s dada. I like these serious scenes, or the cute scenes between the couples, other wise pma scenes, and tryin to be funny scenes are all letdown. Sheryar performed really well today, he and Shariq both are totally understanding and good to see that they went all out to clear the misunderstandings. Maybe im the only one who would prefer shahzain as a friend over Saad, I feel saad has overreacted, and he is the one who is actually wrong. Shahzain is not bad from heart, and he just gets angry fast and makes wrong decisions. But Saad is someone who is not even ready to forgive and keeps grudges, this is not the way friends behave, and not even teenagers.

    • Its part military produced so they have to show progression of a cadet life. My cousin in the military said this is the similar training they have to go through!

    • Thank you so much Tiger for liking the review and for sharing your views here. I find Saad’s complex personality more bearable than that of Shahzain’s. I have always like Shehryar and Shariq the most but unfortunately they are clearly not the leads in the drama.

      • IMHO they r all four leads as drama goes on. Just more focus on Saad-Shahzain as rich dudes always get most footage, even in real life. But best are the underdogs – Shehryar & Shariq & Gulzar. Haris cadet also good , typical cadet acting.

  • Thanks for your review! Episode was good besides Shahzain’s tantrums. Actually it’s good k friendship khatam hui maybe Shahzain will do something with his life now.
    Funny that Gulzars food turned out bad. The song tu mera yaar was the highlight for me. Very emotional and made me remember my time in Pakistan years ago.
    Next week, not a smart move by Duas cousin messing with a military person. Might get beat up.

  • I’m not following this drama fully but I do tune in for your reviews. Though I love Saad’s side of the story but after this episode I’m team Shehryar all the way. His honesty, sincerity and level headedness (mostly) all appeal to me…even his love story is wayyyy better than the others. Saad and dua have zero chemistry and Rani’s theatrics are super irritating…like calm down girl…stop being such a drama queen all the time. I mean who behaves like that nowadays??? Shahzain’s tantrums could’ve been believable if a younger actor had been playing this role cuz he is after all only 18 or 19 years old here, no? But OKB looks 30 so this is rather unconvincing. Shariq’s track has immense potential…let’s hope that it’s tapped into in the coming epis.

  • I have seen nearly all episodes except first two or three. It is very clear that among four boys Saad will be Colonel or General, Shahzain will be Politician, Shahryar will be Bureaucrate and Shariq will become a Journalist. I can assume Shahzain will turn to be a villan finally.

  • Shahzain and Rani are worst characters, over-over-acting with Rani esp. Dua and Saad are second worst. Just PMA training aspect is ok, boring. Expected Propaganda piece. Best are Sheryar, the Gulzar (?) cadet guy and Shariq. Hope to see more of Shehryar -Gulzar-Shariq. Most realistic, believable and down-to-earth acting. Sheheyrar and harmonium guy were highlight of the episode. True emotions there.
