Opening Thoughts – Important Developments:
Ohkay so, the story of Ishq Zahe Naseeb has taken a very interesting turn from the last couple of weeks. It is good to see both Gauhar & Kashif’s journey where they both are dealing with pretty much the same scenarios in their lives but are totally estranged. The pace of the drama has been considerably slow but the overall execution is now making a lot more sense & everything is coming together appropriately.
Kashif & Gauhar Are Focused On Their Priorities:
Kashif was burdened with the fact that he had to deal with his sister’s wedding expenses but he lost his job. Dunya’s father was not only upset with her but he backed Kashif up in front of her too because he knew that whatever Kashif said was nothing but a bitter truth. Jabbar was hopeful that Dunya will come out of this mental state but he saw her dwelling more & more into it & like a concerned but helpless father, he just let her be because he thought this was her way of dealing with her pain & heartbreak. Jabbar knew that Dunya was harsh on Kashif that is why he wanted him back but he was again too scared to hurt Dunya’s feelings. Dunya did realize that Kashif truly respected her for who she was & not because he sympathized with her, that was one of the strongest reasons why Dunya suggested hiring Kashif back.
Sameer could see the difference Gauhar was making in his & his mother’s life, that is why he was keen to get her back to work. Sameer has developed sympathy for Gauhar because he knows her potential & what she is capable of. Sameer also feels that it is unfair for Gauhar to get married to a man like Jahangir who is no match to her whatsoever. Sameer decided to take matters in his hands & that was enough to prove the kind of status Gauhar has earned in Sameer’s house as well as in Sameer’s eyes.
It was interesting to note how Kashif felt relieved when he was hired back but in the meantime he did cross paths with Sameer. Kashif couldn’t stop thinking about how he will now be able to take care of his family efficiently but still at the back of his mind, he had Gauhar. This has to be one of the most interesting aspects of this drama where it has been shown that Gauhar & Kashif’s heartbreak has actually been a blessing in disguise for them, this period of separation has allowed them to focus more on their priorities & because of that they are being able to help their families. Gauhar & Kashif had to do this for their families because there wasn’t anyone else, but if they had gotten married that day, both of them would’ve faced much worse but because they both chose wisely, they are doing something which is benefiting a lot of people around them.
Sameer decided to do what it takes to get Gauhar back to work. Sameer also offered to pay Gauhar’s loan as he knew this was the main reason why she was getting married. Gauhar’s parents though helpless are not any less selfish than her brother Saleem is, especially her mother. Gauhar’s father didn’t have a say when Saleem decided to get Gauhar married to Jahangir but now after Sameer’s proposal to help them out, he immediately thought it would be better to ask Gauhar to not get married at all. Gauhar wants to prove a point to her entire family that she will now do what they had told her to because they didn’t really trust her before, that is why she will now do what it takes to prove it to them. Gauhar has lost the love of her life, so she just wants to take care of her parents debt & that’s it. Gauhar’s brother Saleem & his wife Zakia are just selfish & that is why Zakia wanted Saleem to take full advantage of the opportunity that Sameer had presented them. Saleem not only listened to his wife but did what she said by calling this engagement off.
Closing Thoughts – Interesting Journey Ahead:
Overall, these episodes of Ishq Zahe Naseeb had some important developments to their credit. The change in Dunya’s behavior especially towards Kashif was another important development, she has just accepted the fact that Kashif had a point & that he is a decent man. Sameer has started thinking about Gauhar but it seems Sameera won’t let Sameer enjoy his feelings for her to the fullest. He will continue to fight this battle of guilt where he will be torn between Sameera & Gauhar. This is going to be quite an interesting ride to watch. All the actors are doing a brilliant job & I am actually glad that they have started using instrumental music & the OST doesn’t play as much as it used to in the initial episodes.
