Ohkay so, as much as I do understand that the writer here is trying to come up with a completely different & unpredictable ending for the drama as well as the character of Kashf, I can’t help but feel disappointed after watching the second last episode. These kinds of different & unexpected endings are good for the dramas where the characters have been through the defining moments of their lives but I guess now when the drama is ending, I don’t think there was anything of that sort that happened in Kashf’s life. For me, the biggest disappointment is the fact that eventually in a drama where there was a full potential of not turning protagonist into a bechari, the writer missed an opportunity & made sure that Kashf does come across as one. I so wish the writer had shown Kashf as a strong person at least doing something for ‘herself’ for a change.
Wajdan Turned Out To Be A Disappointment
This episode turned out to be a disappointment because the two nicest characters; Wajdan & Kashf suffered the most & were traumatized by the external influences in their lives. I am definitely not going to question what is going to happen to Wajdan because he himself decided to become such a rigid husband that he wanted to extend selective support to his wife, despite knowing that her hands were tied. At this point, it seems that all the promises Wajdan made to Kashf were false claims because he chose to give up on her when she needed him the most. Wajdan actually grew out of the love he had for Kashf & felt it was important to waste his energies in the matters that he couldn’t control. At this stage, instead of looking like a concerned husband, Wajdan ended up coming across as a rigid, unsupportive & stubborn husband who wanted his wife to dance to his tunes. Wajdan would’ve been able to live up to his promises if he had supported Kashf irrespective of what she was doing or being forced to do for her family.
Wajdan kept on whining about the fact that Kashf should’ve trusted him but he needed to realize that trust alone doesn’t bring home the groceries & also does not pay the bills. Also, while watching this episode, I was wondering why was it that when Wajdan’s father Fayyaz was alive, the family was doing so well financially? After Fayyaz’s death, Wajdan took over his father’s business so why was there such a massive decline in his earnings that he couldn’t even cover the bare minimum? Yes, he did waste a lot of time on Asthana, chasing after Kashf but when he eventually got his trophy wife, shouldn’t that have been enough of a driving force for him to do well & provide enough for Kashf, as well as giving her some extra amount so that she could take care of her family’s dire needs if necessary. Wajdan was probably one of my favorite characters but it is upsetting seeing what he has become. It is like Wajdan literally took a U-turn & instead of maturing with age, he became a lot more immature, especially after he got married because instead of understanding the gravity of the situation, he thought being an escapist was the right approach!
Kashf’s Journey Took The Turn For The Worse
Talking about Kashf’s character, I am once again disappointed because, throughout this journey, I kept on waiting for her to take a stand for herself. It is understandable that her family was not going to change & she probably couldn’t break free from these chains ever but she could’ve found a way. What I liked the most about her character at the beginning was that she never came across as a bechari. Despite the limited resources, she always believed in finding solutions. I am sure if the writer had worked on that aspect of her personality, he could’ve easily shown Kashf finding a way out for herself at least.
