Inkaar Episode 18 Story Review – The Best

This was a phenomenal episode of Inkaar, absolutely impressive in every single way. I honestly thought I had seen the best of Inkaar but team Inkaar keeps on surprising me in the best manner possible – perfect writing, direction and performances. Tonight’s episode of Inkaar was emotional and perfectly put together. Rehan Sheikh, Yumna Zaidi, Imran Ashraf, Sami Khan and Noor-ul-Hassan truly outdid themselves tonight.

Disappointments & Frustrations

Tonight’s episode opened with Shayan turning to his father for help because he knew that with Gullu Badshah out of the way Chaudhrys had a definite edge. This conversation between Shayan and his father was the perfect start to an episode which didn’t lose its momentum for even a minute. Shayan’s ‘lecture’ had absolutely no affect on his father who looks at things from a completely different angle. If it weren’t for people like him, all the Hajras out there would get justice so in a way he is equally to be blamed for what happened to Hajra. The writer has shown how wrong impressions can be, a ‘badmash’ can sometimes be the savior and a protector in a suit can be the biggest threat to justice. Shayan, it seems didn’t agree to his father’s top most condition which is why he refused to help him. I absolutely love how brilliantly Noor-ul-Hassan has translated his character on screen, those sarcastic and wicked expressions on his face are simply priceless. Sami Khan is effortlessly convincing as a young man trying his best to make things right but not succeeding at it. Sami Khan is at his best while conveying the frustration he feels when things get out of control or the times when Shayan has to show more flexibility.

Inkaar Episode 18 Story Review - The Best

The court scenes tonight were the highlight of this episode. Hajra’s lawyer’s opening statement was as honest as it could get. Through all these dialogues the writer highlighted few of the most bitter truths of our justice system. The rich and the powerful get away with murder because of the reasons which have been so aptly shown in this drama. The helplessness of the side which actually should have had an edge in this case was shown superbly. Hajra and her father had vowed to fight their case till the end, if not for Hajra than for Gullu but the lawyer knew only too well that they didn’t stand a chance. All these scenes were extremely emotional, Rehan Sheikh and Yumna Zaidi have been outstanding throughout but their scenes tonight were the best. Mansoor Jamal’s entry after Gullu Badshah was out of the way made perfect sense.

Rehan Chaudhry’s confidence, sheer ignorance, arrogance and naivety knows no bounds. When he walked out of the courtroom he was so sure that his mother will keep her promise, not considering for a second even what must be going through Hajra’s mind at that time. Imran Ashraf’s performance tonight was absolutely faultless in every way. He made the most of every single scene and captured the essence of all the emotions his character was going through. Hajra’s brother has continuously been a source of even more frustration at home and today eventually his father completely lost it. This was also one of the best scenes tonight which showed the level of anger this father felt.

Inkaar Episode 18 Story Review - The Best

Tonight’s episode ended with Rehan Chaudhry realizing that his mother perhaps won’t keep her promise. Will that change anything? How will Hajra and her father recover from this awful experience? This battle is definitely not over just yet. I haven’t seen the preview of the next episode yet therefore I have no idea what the next episode has in store.

Final Remarks

Tonight’s episode of Inkaar was picture perfect in every way and it was also extremely poignant. Inkaar is turning out to be an exceptional serial which never disappoints. Looking forward to watching more exciting, emotional and meaningful episodes of this amazing serial.

  • Absolutely brilliant. All the actors have given such solid performance 👍 Inkar has me glued. Love love Yumna Zaidi. She choose script quite wisely and then put her heart and soul into it. Thats y i consider her the finest actress of our industry. Not one of the finest ;)

  • This episode was brilliant and this episode made this drama unpredictable. From now on you never know which path hajra will take. I think hajra made a mistake by not involving shayan in this case but she will rectify it in the next episode and i would love to see Murtaza Malik’s reaction. I don’t know if Shayan knows it but his father ordered to kill Gullu badshah. Unfortunately today’s episode showed how our system and society works and for a judge and Murtaza Malik, truth sounds filmy. It was so bad to see Hajra and his father. I absolutely loved Hafiz sahab’s dialogue when he said, ‘Ghusa ha to un Chaudhariyon par ja kar nikaly, meri taraf se khuli ijazat ha’. Unfortunately for Hajra her own brother is one of the spectators who is basically a coward who takes out his frustration and anger on his sister. I would love to see him hit Rehan just like when he hit shayan.
    Outstanding drama and brilliant review

    • Thank you so much Ahsan for liking the review and commenting. Hajra is angry because Shayan doubted her, wonder when she will forgive him and start trusting in him again, she clearly cares about him.

  • What I love most about Inkaar is that despite the topic being so hard hitting and the situations relatable they haven’t made the play ‘gloomy’. There are frustrations but no becharipan. I absolutely love Yumna’s character, her acting and Hajra’s bond with her father. Very rarely do we find such father-daughter relationships in our dramas. Imran Ashraf is in a league of his own when it comes to acting and he proves that yet again! All in all Inkaar is one of those plays which has nothing bad about it!! Waiting to see what happens next.

  • Allah kry Hajra ki rehaan se shadi na ho agr aisa Hua tau I will stop watching it.
    Yumna is the best nd no doubts when it is said by Mahira Khan. G han Mahira ne b kaha k Yumna zaidi ki acting zhrdast hai.

  • I have not seen such a detailed, intriguing and gripping courtroom drama as is depicted in this serial. The script, the prowess of the cast, the direction, the background score and what not everything is exceptional. Awesome and poignant review Fatima as always.
    As far as the preview of the next episode is concerned that is even more engaging where Hajra is asking Shayan whether he would be able to kill Rehan for the sake of her…..

  • On a separate note, it is sad how biased our awards system are. For Yumna Zaidi to not even be nominated for her stellar performance in Dar Si Jati Hai Sila and Iqra Aziz to win not one but two awards for Suno Chanda is just inexcusable. Ushna Shah and Bilal were nominated for the caricatures they played in Balaa and there was no mention of Farhan Saeed or Nadia Afghan who were the heart of Suno Chanda or Mohsin Abbas Haider who was flawless in Meri Gurya. Unfair is a small word!
