Kashf Episode 7 Story Review – Directed With A Vision

Ohkay so, this was yet another happening episode of Kashf. So many important events unfolded in this episode & it had Danish Nawaz’s direction written all over it. The best part about the dramas directed by Danish Nawaz is that he always gives equal coverage & insights into the thought processes of all the characters, that is why even a single scene becomes so wholesome because everyone is contributing to it in one way or the other. Another aspect that makes Kashf such an interesting watch is that the writer has come up with a lot of characters, therefore when they are brought together, they complete the picture with each of them having different takes on life.

Important Developments

Rashida realized her mistake. It took her a long time to finally understand that whatever happened with Shumaila was in her best interest & Kashf in no way had anything to do with what Rashida thought was a misfortune for her daughter. Although she did try to rectify her mistake but it once again showed how shallow she was that she actually needed an evidence to believe Kashf & deem her as innocent. Writer Imran Nazeer has aptly shown how such concepts are hardwired into people where they immediately put others on such a pedestal giving them all the power & control over whatever comes their way, without even thinking for a second that this has nothing to do with them in the first place & whatever they are facing is the Divine Decree. Now that Rashida was left with no excuse to misjudge Kashf, she was convinced whereas when Wajdan as well as Shumaila tried to make her understand, she chose not to budge.

Kashf wasn’t surprised because she already knew this is what Rashida was going to do. The way Kashf already knows what’s in store for her makes me feel for her a lot because even when she comes across the things that she should actually be happy about, the thought of bitter realities awaiting her do not escape her mind. Kashf handing over the money to her mother was actually symbolic of how she already knew this is what she was going to do in the future, therefore she didn’t wait for the right time & started then & there.

Kashf 1 2

The difference in Kashf’s behavior was evident in this episode, she was shattered & heart-broken, she was also trying to strengthen herself because she knew she had a never-ending journey waiting for her ahead. However, now she started speaking her heart out. She was still very subliminal about it, but at least it was kind of relieving to see that she was not trying to become a saint who was going to take whatever comes her way. Kashf is the victim of her circumstances, but there’s a difference that the writer has carefully established by showing that she is only accepting everything because through her dreams she has already seen there’s no escape, however she still tries to take charge of whatever’s in her might.

Imtiyaz continued to pester & intimidate his wife & his sister, which was in other way a pressure tactic that he was using on Kashf by showing her that she was now in control of whatever he’d do to them. Imtiyaz knows Kashf will never allow anything to happen to her family members, therefore she will oblige & do what he will ask her of. Kashf still had hope, she knows she can not run away from the fate that has been sealed for her, but she displayed some signs of hope when Wajdan’s parents came to ask for her proposal once again. Kashf sat there hoping things would change for the better but once again, her father did not disappoint her. Also, her sister Zoya has now started to prove to Kashf that the dream that she saw will be materialized, this is why Kashf just took a step back because she knew she was not capable of fighting fate, as well as her conniving sister Zoya.

Wajdan’s character has emerged out to be stronger than it first seemed like. He has proved time & again that he loves Kashf & will walk an extra mile to make her feel secure but sadly, he doesn’t know how hard it already is for Kashf because now her father is not going to let go of her. Wajdan decided to take the matters in his hands. The scene where Irum tried to convince Kashf of running away with Wajdan was one of the strongest scenes of this episode because Hira Mani’s performance was absolutely brilliant. She was clear in her portrayal of all the thoughts that were running through Kashf’s mind.

Kashf 2 2

Matiullah & Ashi’s scene was another one of the strongest scenes in this episode. It was strong in terms of performances as well as the plans that were shared regarding Kashf. Ashi is protective of Kashf, at times even more than her mother. It makes sense because Dilshad has lived a one-dimensional life with no power or control over her life because of her dominating husband, however Ashi has experienced life bitterly & differently, therefore she feels it’s her duty to not only protect Kashf but also do what it takes to keep her safe. Ashi is the voice of reason in this house, this is why she doesn’t shy away from calling spade a spade & whenever she deems right, she gives it back to Imtiyaz as well as holds her mother responsible for her wrong decisions when it comes to her parenting. Ashi’s character is turning out to be very strong & she is definitely my favorite.

The writer has also shown how important it is for a woman to have an exposure & financial independence, obviously with men like Imtiyaz around, it is a constant battle that such strong & independent women have to fight but at least, they do get brownie points for not staying silent & letting the tyrants do as they wish. Ashi is definitely an obstacle in Imtiyaz’s plans but unfortunately with Kashf being so submissive, there’s not much that she can do!

Strongest Performances 

This episode was interesting with all the conversations sounding so real that as a viewer, I could actually feel the emotions of all the characters. Hira Mani continues to impress as Kashf. She has given such a phenomenal performance that she proves every step of the way that this character was made for her. Every expression, every emotion has been displayed with such clarity that the viewers find it very easy to relate to her. Junaid Khan has been very impressive as Wajdan too. The way he broke down after Kashf didn’t show up was very emotional. He showed how heart-broken he was. He is sincere but to see his sincerity not being reciprocated is taking a toll on him. With Ashi losing her job & Kashf seeing yet another dream, it is obvious that now all the financial burden will be on her & she will have no other option than to do what Imtiyaz has been asking her to. Waseem Abbas, Munazzah Arif, Hajra Khan & Saleem Mairaj – all of them have given measured performances. The actresses playing the roles of sisters are doing a great job too. All in all, Kashf is a well-thought out project where the writer & the director had a clear vision about it & they are doing what it takes to make it worthwhile. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Kashf.

Keep Supporting,
Cheers,

  • I am actually trying to catch up with this drama, since reading your reviews. I had no interest in it previously, but your reviews have made me give it a chance. Great drama, I am really enjoying it!! I assume you are reviewing this instead of muqaddar?

    • Thank you so much Azmat for taking the time out to read the reviews. It means a lot. :) I am sure you’ll enjoy this drama a lot. Yes, I am reviewing Kashf in stead of Muqaddar.

  • After a long time i think i am seeing a drama which is fast paced and every scene seems on point. Reason why i feel connected is because everything is realistic. I was laughing when Waseem Abbas was asking Ashi to curse him more. The best thing about Waseem Abbas is that even though he is a negative character but his acting makes it sometimes funny and it feels realistic. His mannerisms tells you that he never thought that he is doing anything wrong and that’s what actually people do in real life. We just don’t realize. Even though this sister rivalry is not new but it’s somehow refreshing. I felt for kashf when she said ye mujy kabhi Wajdan ka ni hony de gi. I think she has accepted her faith. More than her father, i feel she’s not disappointed by her sister. The way she has become a hurdle, she had to take a step back. It’s horrible to see.
    Absolutely phenomenal drama and outstanding review. Kudos to the team of Kashf. Ost is awesome too.

    • Thank you so much Ahsan. Yes, Waseem Abbas has given this character a perfect treatment. It won’t be Danish Nawaz’s drama without a quotient of comedy, therefore it is interesting to see how Waseem Abbas has played with that factor & despite Imtiyaz being mean, you actually enjoy his antics & performance. He is a mean person & doesn’t shy away from embracing it. Yes, Kashf knows what’s going to happen, that is why she has given up.

  • A subtle and witty episode of Kashf. With each passing episode, it gets better than before. You have pointed out each and every aspect in poignant way. I would like to mention here waseem abbas. What an actor he is, loved him. In this episode, kashf saw a dream that she is trapped, though we know key she will become what she sees but more interesting point is key how this journey will take on her to this way. Eagerly waiting for coming qists..

    • Thank you so much Waqar. Oh Waseem Abbas is a treat in Kashf, his acting is beyond brilliant. Yes, for now it seems things will be quite predictable for Kashf but let’s see what happens when she will get to take charge of her life, will she be able to change it?

  • I literally cried so hard in the running-away-but-kashf-doesn’t-show-up scene. Is it only me or do you have a burning desire in your hearts to strangle Zoya?

  • From 2016 to 2020 I have been reading your reviews and the habit is still the same… You might have not seen my comments since very long.. But I have always read reviews..and one thing I realized that your content is always amazing.. You and fatima do a very great job… I like the way you notice each and every detail of the drama even that a normal viewer like me is unable to notice…. The way you pen down the every bit of the drama is just amazing and hence the review of the kashf…. I remember when they released the teaser I did not have much believe in this drama and thought it would be just normal but it is going just beyond expectation… One thing that I like about this drama is the way it is executed.. The dreams of kashf are directed and edited to the best… However we have watched hira mani crying in dramas alot but this drama give her more potential to perform and she has done justice with the feeling that kashf could have in those scenario… You have described everything but one thing I want to add is the point that kashf said to her father after she saw the dream… She said boht jald ghurbat aany wali h… And when I compare this line with the dream I conclude one thing that kashf will die… Maybe… But kashf is unpredictable for me so far… Let’s see what is next coming our way…
