So, what happened in this episode? Yeh janna kissi kay leeyay zaroori nahin hai! Haha, how many times did Mushq use that line on Dabbu. Sometimes Mushq is this strong headed, proactive, go getter sort of girl who knows what she wants and took a stand for Fahd against her father. And then there are moments when she resigns herself to fate (?), goes into a trance and agrees to marry old men! I am about to write this girl off as being schizophrenic. Seriously, where do I send the bills for all these diagnoses?!
Anyways, Mushq decides to attend her new friend’s wedding and appears just in time for the rukhsati. Dabbu and Striker are already there. I found it really odd how Mushq recognized Dabbu’s voice and when she turns she and Dabbu instantly recognize each other. Maybe they had crossed paths earlier then but I seriously do not remember when and how. Or maybe since he was the mohalla’s renowned gunda, sorry, social worker, she had been aware of who he is. Oh well. Whatever and however, they do instantly recognize each other and it did seem natural that Dabbu would instantly look around for Fahd upon seeing Mushq there.
Following all the ‘I saw this in his eyes’ and ‘ you look in your heart and you will see this’ – I mean, really what are words for. The only expressions I recognize are a glare and a smile! Mushq is back in her trance like ‘Bebo ma’am has done a lot for me so I shall lay my neck down for her’ state. I have said it before and will repeat myself here when I say if there was to be no eavesdropping in our dramas, half the stories would never progress. Mushq very conveniently overhears Bebo talking to baray saeen (man, what a character he is!) and realizes her true intentions. Switch over to her ‘other personality’ and Mushq dashes out of the house. Where? No idea. With Orya and Bebo out in search for her and our own desi Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson also looking for her, thankfully Mushq comes across them. And then switch back to the ‘first’ personality and she refuses to go with Dabbu! I mean, hello! She is ‘escaping’ from Bebo, in a village unknown to her, in the middle of the night – but refuses to leave with Dabbu. So glad he manages to talk sense into her and she gets in to their car.
So, Mushq is brought back to her father’s home who minces no words in making it clear he wants nothing to do with her. Seems like Mushq will end up being with Dabbu now. Mushq wanders off to Zeba’s house. To do what, really? Zeba’s life, we see is the same. Baji full of venom and bitterness and Niyaz being ultra sweet and Zeba’s emotions ping-ponging between reactions to Baji and Niyaz’s attitudes. Uff!
