Ehd-e-Wafa Episode 24 Story Review – Change of Heart

Tonight’s episode of Ehd-e-Wafa had quite a few emotional scenes. This episode focused on Shahzain more than any other character. Shahzain has finally decided to change his ways. I was looking forward to Shehryar and Masooma’s story moving forward with this episode but seems like we will have to wait another week for that. Shehryar’s character continues to be the most balanced and likable character in the show. Ahmed Ali Akbar never fails to impress. Ahad Raza Mir and Alizeh Shah were superb tonight. Ahad Raza Mir deserves all the credit for a performance which has been beyond brilliant. Some of the dialogues tonight were really well written and the director Saife Hassan made sure that every single emotion was captured on screen which made some of the scenes more impactful.

Shahzain’s Track

Shahzain’s track in this episode was penned down convincingly but Osman Khalid Butt’s performance was yet again not up to the mark. His sad expressions did not work for me at all. In the hospital scenes too there were too many expressions on his face. Ahmed Ali Akbar and Wahaj Ali on the other hand, performed brilliantly. It was quite apparent last week that Shahzain had planned this attack therefore this development was not surprising. But it was good to see Shahzain finally realizing he was going to lose his friends and relatives if he continued being so selfish. He has apologized so many times that Shehryar’s reaction to this apology made perfect sense! Rani was the one who deserved an apology more than anyone else yet she was not shown in this episode after the opening scene. The hug in the end was emotional even though we have seen so many such hugs before too in Ehd-e-Wafa.

Ehd-e-Wafa Episode 24 Story Review - Change of Heart

 

I am glad that the writer showed that Shahzain’s dada advised him to stay in politics and work for the betterment of the people. Had he left politics, it would have sent the wrong message. Now, he can actually be shown as a politician who is trying to make a difference.

Shariq’s Track

Shariq’s success was covered in one scene and through this scene the viewers were also informed that Shariq and Ramsha were getting married. This scene also showed there were good people in the media industry as well since Shariq’s boss did not only applaud his honesty but also gave his staff monetary incentive. I did feel however that the boss came across as a little too generous! It is great watching Ramsha and Shariq succeeding as a team. They make a cute and unconventional on-screen couple.

Best Scene

Dua and Saad’s scene was the highlight of this episode. Saad’s surprise was so good that for a while it seemed like Dua was perhaps imagining that he was there. Ahad Raza Mir and Alizeh Shah’s performances were on point. The best thing about this scene was that although it was short but it covered the sentiments of both these characters in the most apt manner. Dua was not the only one who was scared but leaving Dua and going for this mission was also difficult for Saad. I am glad that Saad hasn’t been shown as the rough and tough military man and there is a sensitive side to him as well. It basically showed that even with all the commitment and dedication, it is difficult for an army man to leave his family behind and go on a mission from which he might never come back. This scene was also directed flawlessly, the use of the background music made it even more emotional. Since Saad came to see Dua and left her with all those letters, it is more likely than ever that he might not return. I would however love to see Saad come back from this mission after achieving great success. Ahad Raza Mir definitely deserves an award this year for breathing tangible life into every single scene whether it is in Ehd-e-Wafa or Yeh Dil Mera, he has been exceptional throughout.

Final Remarks

Tonight’s episode had a few surprises and even though Osman Khalid Butt’s acting left a lot to be desired, it is good to know that Shahzain is finally on the right track. Shahzain’s conversation with his dada was written well and so were Shehryar’s dialogues when he confronted Shahzain. The most emotional scene of this episode was Saad and Dua’s meeting. Looking forward to the second last episode of Ehd-e-Wafa and hoping that Saad will come back alive. I am not too happy about the fact that the last episode will be shown in cinemas a day before it airs on television. Although, that is an intelligent move by the producers since fans are more likely to watch it in the cinemas this way but the ending will be spoiled for those of us watching it on television.

  • fatima great review please review Jhooti after this drama ends please please please

  • I reckon mateen sahab didn’t say to shahzain that politician fitratan acha nahi hota or jo hota hai wo fitratan politician nahi hota.

  • Both last episodes will be combined and released on 15
    And there is a gap on 8

    • Waelukum Asalam,

      So they are following MPTH’s lead LOL!! Waiting to see the double episode then;) I hope the ending is not as disappointing as that of MPTH.

        • yeah absolutely the ending was not disappointing Meray Paas Tum Ho was a better drama than Ehd e Wafa

      • I don’t think it’s going to disappointing bcz
        1) they have 2 episodes unlike MPTH where they technically had 1 episode which they extended on 2 hours with 20 min recap. I’ve heard EeW will have a 5 min recap only.
        2) there is still a lot to be covered.
        3) They shot the final scenes in the near past so they had this thing in mind that they are gonna release it in cinemas. So, hopefully no audio issues.
        Lastly, apologies to mpth fans but it’s last episode was a laughing stalk partially because of the glaring flaws and partially because of predictable ending.

          • They are not copying.mery pass tum ho and pyary afzal ki elawa bhi bohat sarey dramas main hero ki death hue hay. Yeh itni baree bath nahi
            Agar aap last episode ko cinema main on-air karni ki bath kar rahi hay to bhi main yeh kahungi ki ehd e wafa zyada hype deserve karti as compared to MPTH

  • Since the drama is ending I want to ask you would you be missing it?
    I think for me Mustafa Afridi was the star for tonight. His dialogues made scenes impactful which could’ve easily appeared repetitive. Also, I think Saife Hassan is an underrated director, maybe because he is a good actor too. However, I think he has full potential to be a film director since direction of ehd e wafa and sang e mar mar is far better than many Pakistani movies till date.
    For me, OKB good enough tonight. Ahmed ali akbar was brilliant yet again. I’m glad this guy is getting the hype he deserves, even though he got the least screen time in the initial episodes.
    Finally, the cutest scene was between saad and dua.
    I know I might offend a few fans here but in my opinion Ahad Raza Mir is the best actor in the younger lot of actors.

    • I agree that ahad raza mir is the best actor in all the youngsters. Agar Ehd e wafa ko hi dekh ley tho bhi in four main ahad new hain but in sab se best hay.
      Same case with yeh dil mera us main bhi ahad ki acting kamal ki hay. Ahad truely knows how to express his emotions on screen.

    • Yes Javeria, I will miss Ehd-e-Wafa, it has been a wonderful journey and I feel connected to all the characters now more than ever. I will be eagerly waiting to see Ahmed Ali Akbar in particular in another drama, hopefully a good one. Saife Hasan is amazing! And the thing I like about him the most is that he is not afraid of working with new actors.

      Totally agree with you about Ahad, so many different expressions and such good acting.

      • Totally agree with about saife hassan’s confidence .he is a brilliant director of aur industry

  • مجھ پر کوئی حملہ نہیں ہوا تھا۔” شاہزین۔۔

    یعنے یہ آپریشن اور ہسپتال کے معاملات سارے فیک تھے؟ کیا بتانا چاہتے ہیں اور کسی خاص پارٹی کی طرف اشارہ تو
    lol نہیں؟

    ہسپتال بھی بکے ہوئے ہیں؟

  • Why is every single episode of Ehd e Wafa so packed with emotions? I mean, why do they make us shed a year every time Saad and Dua meet? And this time,their meeting was on a completely different level. Just from Ahad’s countenance and Alizeh’ eyes, u could see that helplessness, longing… heavily foreshadowing the grief which is probably gonna come by( plz don’t 🙏🙏).
    At this time, I do hope that the trailer for the last episode is misleading. Seeing Dua suffer along with Saad being martyred before meeting Junior Saad is too painful to watch….
    And yes, Fatima, while watching Shazain’s scenes, I was so disappointed in Obi’s acting. Now, I understand why they casted him as a villain and not as the hero😉

    Anyways, after EeW, will u be reviewing Hania Amir’s Dilruba, Fatima? I guess that will be replacing EeW.. or do u have any other drama on ur watch?

    • I agree with you Ibrahim, I really really hope that doesn’t happen, it will be heart breaking.

      I am waiting for Nauman Ijaz and Savera Nadeem’s play, not sure when it will be airing.

  • Thank you for the review. The birthday scene was great. It was good whe Shahzain was reflecting on his wrong doings, they should flashback of when he shot the horse. Waqar had been shown as an evil minded person in start so it is good he will not be getting the position and now throught Shahzian we will get to see responsibilities of those elected by us. Ahmed Ali Akbar and Alizey have been good. Shehryar is my favorite amongst SSG. And I second you, Ahad deserves an award.

    • You’re welcome Pakistani. Yes, I liked dada’s advice a lot and it was good to see Shahzain finally changing. Ahad Raza Mir is phenomenal.

  • nice review fatima, this is one of the rare dramas where second half is better than the first half. dua-saad chemistry is excellent.

    pls review muqaddar after this drama ends, as thats really worth watching.

    • Thank you Tiger. Totally agree with you! Never thought I would warm up to Dua and Saad but they are my favorite now.

      Haven’t watched Muqadar yet, will watch it. Thank you for the suggestion.

  • Today episode was very emotional make me and my sister cry..saad left his wife coz of country..can’t explain our emotions

  • Assalamoalaikum Fatima. Great review.
    Mujhy es episode main shahzain ka track bohat acha laga. Sirf hospital ka scene boring tha es ki elawa mujhy har scene acha laga. OB ki acting achi hay magar es dramy main us ki muqably main ahad raza mir, ahmad ali akbar and wahaj hay es liye OB ki acting overshadowed ho jati hay. Secondly us ki character ko en theeno characters ki tarah full white nahi dekhaya gaya.
    Saad aur dua ka scene bohat cute tha. Ab to aur bhi clear ho gaya hay ki saad shaheed ho jayega and i am gona happily accept it but mujhy last episode ka trailor thora sa confuse kar raha hay jab SSG Lawrence college main dekhaty hay. Stage pe dekhaty hain etc etc. Fatima aap ka kyal khyal hay?kiya yeh illusion hoga? Reply plz

    • Waelukum Asalam Noor, Thank you so much for liking the review.

      Mujhe laga ke wo shayad bus aise hi dala hua tha scene to show how far these boys had come and it will probably be part of a song in the beginning or the end.

  • Fatima that is why we love you, you call a spade a spade! OKB’s acting was the worst in this episode. He should not do these crying scenes.

  • 2 reasons why I think there is going to be a sad ending
    1.ISPR: since it is in collaboration with
    2. They are featuring the last ep in cinema like mpth
    3. Alpha bravo Charlie they also had a sad
    Reasons why I think it might be a happy ending
    1. In the trailer we see all of them in Lawrence college
    2. Bcz mpth got such a bad response because of Danish.
    3. Where will dua go. There was no entry of another guy to replace saad. So I doubt anything will happen to saad.

    • Fatima pls let me know what you think will happen. You have so much experience reviewing these drama I would really like to know your idea of the ending.

  • End.e.wafa is very close to my heart . It is too painful to watch last epi of your favourite drama. Shahzain and shehryar’s scenes were best. The way shehryar advised shahzain that he is in the wrong track, touched my heart (na Rona na dhona, kisi blaming kisi larai ky bgair apni baat smja gya🤝👌 ). Saad and Dua’s scenes were so cute and beautiful with full of emotions as always. But I don’t think so that saad will be “Shaheed” because this project is collaborating with ISPR. ISPR don’t supposed to fear the people, they just want to show how army families their lives. How many sacrifices they have to do for their country.They just want to aware us. I think there must be happy ending.

  • So one message is loud and clear
    … only Army officers are at their best … their services are unparalleled
    Rest are no where near to them
    This is ISPR production after all

  • Fatima your review is great exactly meray dil ki baat.The only complaint I have with the writer and Director is that equal time is not given to all the characters.Masooma to bilkul hee ghaaib hai,Shariq aur Ramsha kaa bhi track bahut kum hai.Sub say zyada time Dua and Saad kay scenes kaa hai.

  • I was the one who was slightly critical of aina and armaan hugs in yeh dil mera as I found it a bit much and ott in style, but now here in ehw, it was totally deserved between dua and saad and I was wondering why aren’t they hugging when she sees him first… Or even when he leaves… Found it odd..

  • Hi Fatima,

    It was perfectly paced episode, i just got time to see it. I liked all the scenes. My favorite dialogues were between dada and shahzain; how dada showing shaitan is always within oneself and later Shahzain to his Dada saying, “ i will not feed my shaitan anymore”. Very unique.

    Your review was spotless as always, my favourite part from it was, “now he can actually be shown as a politician who is trying to make a difference.“ OKB’s not impressive acting skill, Saad as a military man with emotions and lastly the dialogue “ it is difficult for an army man to leave his family behind and go on a mission from which he might never come back.”
