Opening Thoughts – Finally Some Progress:
Ohkay so, this episode of Koi Chand Rakh was interesting because it took the story forward & finally the cat’s out of the bag now. I will say that after seeing the way certain characters’ reactions to certain things, I totally feel they are poorly written & poorly directed as well.
Truth Is Out:
Zia Bhai turned out to be the one who not only apologized to Sobi but also told Gulshan about Zain’s gul that he had bloomed with the help of Nishal. After finding out about everything, the first thing Gulshan should have done was informing Zain that Rabail had nothing to do with what Zia did but she was too busy taking care of her hair & makeup that she forgot doing something so important. It is funny that when it comes to blaming Rabail, everyone is active & enthusiastic but when its time for the damage control, everyone is either too distracted or least bothered. Well, it was good to see Gulshan being happy about Rabail’s pregnancy, at least there is someone who reacted to this news the way it was meant to be. It seems like Sobi will develop a soft corner for Rabail, I guess in such a considerable cast, giving one supportive person to Rabail isn’t such a big deal!
Asad uncle got to overact again & Nafeesa was now acting numb as if whatever Nishal did was again Rabail’s fault. Nishal is someone who has grown up with a lot of complexes & a lot of bitterness that is why she couldn’t stop reminiscing about the times she had spent with Rabail & how every single time she was forced to accommodate her. Nishal felt victorious because she now took revenge of a lifetime & snatched away someone who meant a lot to Rabail.
To be honest, as much as I feel for Rabail, I am not a fan of her character because there’s no difference between Rabail or a doormat. Every single time one person or the other misbehaves with her & she stands there speechless as if she is entitled to such kind of treatment.
Closing Thoughts – Double Episodes Would’ve Been Better:
Well, Nishal was thrown out of the house & she came to Zain’s right at that time when Rabail was trying to mend her broken relationship with Zain. We have seen a lot of negative characters but they seem convincing because of the way they have been written but in Koi Chand Rakh there’s absolutely no personality in negative characters, no logic, no substance whatsoever.
Overall, this episode of Koi Chand Rakh was still pretty decent because the story made a progress. Ayeza Khan’s acting was really good in the last scene for sure. Not sure what has gone into Imran Abbas though, his acting is just not the same anymore. I still believe if they had aired double episodes of this drama, it would’ve been a better experience watching it. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Koi Chand Rakh.
