Ohkay so, this episode of Lashkara was humorous as well as entertaining. Even though nothing happened much in this episode therefore it can be said that it was an extended version of the previous episode with a few more situations thrown in. The feel & the overall execution of this drama is refreshing & it just draws your attention to it perfectly.
So, subtly & slowly it was highlighted how Bubbly’s family also had their fair share of politics happening between them & the triggering factor which blew things out of proportion was Saima’s proposal which got forwarded to Bubbly. Even though Muneer was ashamed, Kulsoom didn’t seem concerned because for her, it was a validation that she invested her time & energies in the right thing as she got the answer that Bubbly’s future is secured because she is pretty & has a charming personality.
Saima’s parents were clearly upset & her mother especially blamed both Kulsoom & then Bubbly for snatching this opportunity away from Saima. It was nice to see Saima being the voice of reason & trying to advodate Bubbly’s position in front of her mother because yes, Saima was right, whatever happened wasn’t Bubbly’s fault & she didn’t deliberately leave such an impression on the suitor’s family which drew their attention towards her.
Kulsoom on the other hand found solace in Tayi’s suffering because she saw it as karma’s spin on her for looking down on Bubbly & seeing her as a nobody due to her lack of education. Muneer was genuinely sorry but unfortunately, his family is totally opposite to him in everything starting from perspectives to mentality.
Bubbly continued being herself & her attempt of making Saima happy was cute. Though Bubbly manipulates things to her advantage but she still is a sweet person from the inside. It is interesting to see how even though she doesn’t say anything to Sunny on those lines that she is interested in him but also doesn’t burst the bubble by stating the otherwise. It is like Bubbly likes to give Sunny this impression that she likes him but in reality, she only likes his undivided attention.
So, Nazeer ended up giving Bubbly the dress that belonged to someone else, obviously because he couldn’t say no to her. It is funny to see Nazeer thinking that he even stands a chance with Bubbly because right then & there Sunny forced him to wake up & smell the coffee that Bubbly was way out of his league & that she only belonged to Sunny.
Well, Bubbly enjoyed the wedding only to find out that Feeka’s mother Nasreen (Saba Hameed) recognized the suit that she was wearing because it belonged to her daughter. I must say it was interesting to see how Kulsoom was trying to do everything to cover up Bubbly’s blunder, like she wanted to save her from Taya & then Tayi’s taunts because she knew that this thing could escalate into something huge, giving Tayi another chance to take a dig at Bubbly. Kulsoom really takes pride in the fact that Bubbly is beautiful & carries herself well, that is why she made sure to compliment her after she returned from the wedding without even bothering about where did Bubbly arrange that dress from.
Well, Nasreen approached Kulsoom & Bubbly & then said something which caught them off-guard. Nasreen asked for Bubbly’s hand for her son Feeka they both couldn’t believe what Nasreen had just said. Even though the main focus of that scene was on the proposal, I must say I loved the way it was highlighted that Bubbly, despite being afraid, was ready to own her mistake as she didn’t want Nazeer to take the brunt of it. It shows how Bubbly will never deceive anyone or let them be mistreated because of her own mistakes. Though people might see Bubbly for her beauty & outer appearance & even though the entire focus has been on this aspect but I like that the writer has created such situations which give us a chance to learn more about her character & nature.
Feeka’s obsession with Bubbly was funny. Also, now that he has this wealth, it is interesting to see how he is using it to keep his eye on Bubbly. Sunny on the other hand also tried to arrange a selfie but things just didn’t go his way. I must say, I like how all of this is shown as harmless kind of obsession with Bubbly, like Sunny keeps on talking about how others have her pictures or videos but no one sees it as something to be frowned upon, not even Bubbly herself or Sunny who is supposedly possessive about her or even Feeka who sees her as his future wife.
Overall, this episode was quite interesting & I had a great time watching it. I am keen on seeing the animosity between Sunny & Feeka because they both have called dibs on Bubbly, let’s see who will win her over in the end. Ushna Shah is adorable as Bubbly, Mohsin Abbas Haider has made Feeka look creepily cute & Imran Ashraf is the perfect choice as Sunny, I just couldn’t stop laughing at his Punjabi accent English lesson, lol! Loving the direction & overall situation so far. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Lashkara.
