So, after a couple of fast paced episodes, this episode seemed to be a bit on the slower side – with less action and more reflection. Oh, that is except if you count Master Sb who seemed to be very active –wandering around the mohalla, confronting and being confronted.
Mushq is ecstatic that the wedding to Qureshi did not take place and is reassured of Fahd’s love for her. In the scene where she is twirling round and round in joy I felt like jumping up and stopping her as I would when my kids do that because watching her was making me dizzy!
Anyhow, Master Sb confronts Qureshi and asks why he backed out of the wedding at the last minute. Qureshi, with his freshly dyed mustache and waggling eyebrows, is indignant and in turn tells Master Sb off who then learns that Dabbu Bhai was the one who was actually behind the whole ‘baraat not showing up’. Master Sb is also told that the mohalla has been talking about him (do they ever talk about anything else but Master Sb and his gharana) and want him to leave the mohalla but that it would be in his best interests if he left himself without being (physically) forced to.
Master Sb comes home and takes out his anger and frustration on Mushq who escapes into her room when Dado intervenes and Master Sb promptly locks her in. Chalo bhai, Mushq locked in again. I winced when he grabbed Mushq by her hair and am glad we were saved from having to see him beat her up with his stick, thanks to Dado.
