Wow! Today’s episode was completely engaging. There are many aspects which have been highlighted in the episode this week with lots of progress. I am totally hooked to this drama because they have dealt with the script & the characters perfectly.
This week we’ve seen a few other sides of Zoya’s nature. She is soft spoken & head strong but she is completely sensitive yet can raise her voice when needed. The start of the episode was completely heart-wrecking where a young servant is being mistreated. Zoya’s restlessness & her tears put a light on the harsh reality & showed that such people do exist where they forget the humanitarian values & cross the limits. Zoya’s encounter with the servant’s mother was extremely well-executed & the dialogues were perfect.
We got to see more of Anums’ character in fact more of her true colors in this episode. Her unreasonable attitude towards Zoya said a lot about herself as well. Mr. Kamal, as usual; an irrational person backed her silly personal joke whereas Mrs. Kamal disliked it. What she said or did was totally uncalled for but then again they have to keep on highlighting the personalities of all the characters, which justifies the scene. But I still don’t understand why every-time they call Zoya for tea or even for passing the orders to the other servants. She ain’t a home-maker of their house nor she is a servant.
One very interesting revelation was of Shahzeb. He happens to be the brother of two sisters who are friends with both Anum & Zoya. Shahzeb was the one Anums’ mother was interested in but he found Zoya more appealing for obvious reasons. It could be clearly seen that when Anums’ friend tells her that Shahzeb has refused to get committed to her, she gets enraged & tries to cover it up by telling she ain’t interested in him either. Anum, however has started to show interest in Sherry even before he has arrived. Seems like he is the one who is up-to the mark of Anums’ expectations & standards. Now, at this point I can’t wait for Sherry’s arrival.
One unjustified thing today was Ansars’ behaviour & his conservative statements & values. At one point he has feelings for Zoya & is being extra particular about where she goes & who she meets & on the other hand he wants a partner who has a clean slate & has never interacted with men. His attitude towards his fiancée Mariam is surprising. On on hand he has agreed to get married but on the other he is least bothered. I am actually wondering what could be the reason behind his lack of interest towards his fiancée? Now we still have another thing to wait for.
Now last but not the least a say on Anums’ parents. We see that Mrs. Pervaiz is pretty much worried & wants to find a suitable partner for Anum whereas she is snubbed by Mr. Parvaiz saying ‘tum kya middle class ma’oon ki tarhaan shadi ki fikar kar rahi ho’. Excuse me? LOL! Do people belonging to high-class do not get their daughters married or leave them at loose to go & hunt for the husbands themselves? I guess the dialogue writers should always re-consider whatever they write because no matter which class one may belong to but our values are pretty clear about how two people get married & what sort of approvals the go through.
Anyhow, I like this drama to the extent that to wait for it for a whole one week seems like a burden but never-mind I am happy that the script is getting stronger & has a few surprises of it’s own. After seeing the preview for the next weeks episode I really can’t wait for it. 🙂 Have your say on it readers.
