Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3 Episode 22 Story Review – Mahi Doesn’t Deserve This

Ohkay so, this was yet another excitingly slow episode of Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3. In this entire episode, it was reinforced that Jageerdarni was not in a mood to forgive Mahi. She did not even pay heed to the consideration & compassion Mahi was extending towards her. Her bitterness at this stage is now taking away from the fact that she has lost her son, despite the fact that it felt she had her reasons to behave that way during the initial days’ post Taimoor’s death. I really hope they do not prolong Jageerdarni’s saas-y attitude & give Mahi a relief & a break that she most certainly deserves.

Mahi Doesn’t Deserve This

Throughout this episode, I felt nothing but sadness & grief for Mahi. Looking at what she has reduced herself to, made me upset. Although Mahi is taking it as a duty, her obligation & there is absolutely nothing wrong with that but to top it all off, the emotional & physical well-being aside, she is not even at rest mentally was what saddened me the most. Mahi had so much to deal with & now on top of it all, she holds herself accountable, rather deems herself sinful because Farhad with his bad-duas is harrowing her in her thoughts. I really feel there is a lot of imbalance here because the way the writer has tried to uplift Farhad by literally putting Mahi down through all means is disturbing, to say the least. Once again, if they had worked through Farhad’s emotions & his reasons, maybe it would’ve been easier to understand that Mahi deserved all of this because, at this stage of the drama, all I can think about is how unfair it is to her & how she shouldn’t be going through all of this.

Mahi let her friend Rida know that she can’t help but think about Farhad. At this point, the writer & the director obviously want the audience to think that she still has that emotion of love or something of that kind in her heart for Farhad but I will definitely take it as a trauma & nothing else. Ever since Taimoor has passed away, Mahi has only thought about Farhad’s bad-duas & she has held herself responsible for it all, therefore it doesn’t come as a surprise that she can’t help but think about what he said to her. It is absolutely natural & doesn’t translate as anything else.

Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3 Episode 22 Story Review - Mahi Doesn't Deserve This

Romana definitely wants more than just an unspoken commitment from Sikandar. She does everything he tells her to do, he controls all the affairs related to her life, therefore it is fine for her to want more in terms of officializing & legalizing this relationship. It did seem Sikandar also understood her ordeal & started thinking on those lines but he hasn’t come up with a decision yet. It is obvious that Sikandar will also be torn between Mahi & Romana where he will have to give up his love for responsibilities or vice versa. It doesn’t take much to figure out that he will definitely pick his children & mother’s well-being over Romana. Sikandar & Romana both will have to go through the trials & tribulations but let’s see what’s in store for them.

Another day at Mazaar & another yummy food parcel that was handed over to Farhad. Once again, it was amusing how Dervish knew which morsel of food belonged to which mouth, I am impressed. Farhad should be happy that he is not the only one who is crying because that quota is being shared by Naheed in Lahore as well. Supposedly she is getting married & even after so many weeks, she feels she hasn’t gotten the time to mourn Farhad’s loss! More than anyone else, I am desperately waiting for her to get married. Also, I am not sure why Fari seemed so surprised because, in the previous episode or the one before that, she was the one who pep-talked Naheed & told her it was time for her to move on.

Slow Paced Drama

This episode of Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3 was slow with a couple of important scenes. There is no denying the fact that all the actors have performed brilliantly but I really feel the director’s approach in taking things slow & prolonging each & every nominal situation has killed the charm of this drama. There is absolutely no excitement while waiting for, or watching this drama whereas I had high expectations from it. Iqra Aziz deserves full points for bringing out her best & doing justice to Mahi. If it wasn’t for her acting & performance, I wouldn’t have felt much for Mahi either. The preview of the next episode once again suggested that Mahi & Farhad will cross paths but not sure if they will finally get to see each other or not. Let’s see what happens. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3.

  • Nice review Zahra madam. KAM3 is a burden to watch and i just skipped all the temadari scenes because everyone knows whats happening there. And yes, also for the first time, a character seemed to be moving towards a spirtual journey. And that is not Farhad, not Mahi, or even lusty Darwesh superhero (as you put it, sans lust), it was Romana and her mother/pimp. They discussed how they eternally belong to this business, also their share of trying to escape it. When it was Azaan, she just covered her head up. She is starting to bein her spirtual journey, more will be bolstered after Sikandar marries Mahi and her trust and faith in love will be lost.
    I totally see an end where the “feedi” prize is won by Romana with Mahi biting the dust in the end. I just only hope that they both dont spend their rest of the lives on that shirkiya mazaar, there are other ways of deen service too.

    P.S: Naheed bibi, if I am not sure, you areyet to return the fancy cutlery. Also, thankyou for ruining my fav sweer (barfi) forever.

  • Great review as always. The only thing that is being perfectly portrayed in this drama is Mahi’s house arrest. She is totally in a jail called susral, though this sacrifice is being glorified. I can totally relate to it, my sister was in a similar situation in susral and I duly remember how difficult her “extraction” was. Susral can be a total jail if the love of husband is absent and others are constantly interferring in your matters.
    When she was “extracted”, she was depressed, in an exactly a similar fragile state of mind where she forgot her worth. Took her months to reassemble herself. The constant attacks from her susral after the “extraction” didnt help matters much.
    Not a lot will relate to this situation, but I see women in yt comments section discussing this situation. I also wouldnt have understood it if I or my family didnt go through this trauma.

  • وہ دن تھے جب ڈرامے کی ایک ایک قسط دیکھنے اور تجزیہ کرنے والے دونوں قسم کے اشخاص کیلئے اچھا خاصہ مواد رکھتی تھی، انتظار رہتا تھا اور دیکھنے کے بعد مزید تشنگی بڑہتی تھی، اب تو شروع کی چند اقساط کے بعد ایسا کوئی حال ہوتا ہے کہ سر دیوار کیساتھ مارنے کو کرے! سینکڑوں ڈرامے چل رہے ہیں اور یہ حال ہے کہ دل مائل ہی نہیں ہوتا کہ ایک قسط بھی مسلسل دیکھی جاسکے۔۔۔۔
