Ohkay so, this episode of Khaas focused on showing the contrast between how their lives shape up when a couple gets divorced. Khaas drama has turned out to be Khaas especially because of the way everything has been shown so realistically. Be it emotions or situations or reactions, every single thing in this drama depicts reality and this is why Khaas is doing so well in terms of popularity. Khaas hits the right notes and because of the realistic portrayal, this story and this drama has resonated with a huge number of audience.
Saba & Ammar Got a Different Treatment:
Ammar decided to divorce Saba and not only that, he had made up his mind to get married to Salma as soon as possible too. After the divorce, they showed how hard it was for Saba to face everything whereas how easy it was for Ammar to not only move on but get married. This entire episode was dedicated to the different treatments both Saba and Ammar were getting at the hands of their families. Saba, despite being the victim in this situation was forced to explain herself again & again. Even though Saba continued to explain & justify herself, nothing that she said was being taken seriously by her parents because they had pretty much made up their minds that it was Saba who was at fault & it was Saba who was responsible for this divorce & not Ammar. This episode of Khaas showed how a girl who gets divorced usually faces the brunt even if she is not at fault. Saba had tried everything to save her marriage but still, she has fallen short of her responsibilities as per her parents.
Ammar easily moved on & no one said a word. In fact, it was perfectly shown how Ammar was not only getting all the love & support but his demands were being facilitated by everyone around him too. Although Ammar is quite manipulative & he loves to always have a clean slate in front of others but even if he wasn’t this conniving, he still would’ve walked away scot-free because in situations like these, men are hardly blamed. Ammar made sure to not leave a loose end that will make anyone catch onto something. This is the reason why everyone still believes that Ammar was a loyal husband & it was Saba who was not only ungrateful but also cheated on her husband!
Javeria & Fakhir were worried for Saba. It was good to see that both Javeria & Fakhir despite being Ammar’s friends were not only different from him, but were also genuinely concerned for Saba too. Javeria at first didn’t hurry to help Saba over but it was good to see it weighing on her heart because she could totally feel that Saba was being put in an awkward position because of Javeria’s silence. Even though Javeria will testify in favor of Saba but I hardly doubt that her parents will believe any of that, especially after seeing Fakhir accompanying Javeria to their place. Saba does feel she is left alone but she has no idea that there are still a few people who are concerned for her & her well-being.
The reminiscent scene was done nicely, where Ammar was happily getting married, Saba was still thinking about the things he said to her right when their married life started. Saba has turned into a culprit in front of her parents & it is unfortunate that she is being reminded of it repeatedly. I actually expected better from Faraz who happens to be such an understanding & loving husband, but his attitude with Saba after all that she has been through is disgusting.
Well well well, Ammar got married to Salma & she started setting everything straight right from the beginning. Ammar shared every single detail with Salma about how unhappy he was with Saba & how undeserving she was of his love & companionship, Salma has gotten this wrong idea that by getting married to Ammar, she has done a favor to him. Salma believes that she & Saba do not have any comparison, but she isn’t wrong to feel that way because it was Ammar who fed it to her. Salma is not wrong, it is just the way she is, she is an only child, spoiled & wealthy, plus she knows she has her parents’ back always, therefore she doesn’t believe in taking any pressures. Ammar in his mind actually thought that Salma will be in awe of him & will see him as her savior who got married to her after her divorce but quite clearly, Salma let Ammar know that she wasn’t over the moon at what Ammar did for her. For Salma, she has just gotten married to the guy she liked & she believes he should be thankful that she accepted his proposal, something that Ammar always expected from Saba. It was interesting to see how Ammar was just being left speechless one instance after another because he just didn’t know how to deal with Salma. Ammar has already started feeling suffocated & as much as he wants things to stay smooth, Ammar is slowly realizing that Salma won’t allow him that luxury!
Salma left quite an impression on Ammar’s family too & they had nothing to say. Soon enough, they will also realize that Ammar made the wrong decision & they all will end up comparing Salma & Saba. I don’t blame Salma in this entire situation at all, she is a difficult & rigid person but she is just like that – unapologetically self-centered & selfish as well. Now it will be interesting to see how she will treat Ammar & how he will feel the suffocation that he put Saba through.
Closing Thoughts – Perfect:
Overall, this episode of Khaas was again perfect. I am really glad that this drama has been consistently good for the most part. Even though so many episodes have passed but it just keeps on getting better & better. I so want to see Saba having some kind of support from her parents but then, even if they will change her attitude towards her, their image won’t change. All the actors have done a brilliant job. Hira Tareen was definitely the star of this episode, it was really nice to see her giving attitude to Ammar. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Khaas.
