Right. So forget Aslam-Dabbu faceoff, Mushq-Fahd love story, Master Sb’s heart troubles – what stayed with me the most at the end of the episode was – the bun kebab!! Woh bhi special wala! It has been years since I have been able to have a street side bun kebab in Pakistan and I realised watching that scene how badly I missed it.
Back to less important matters then. Aslam Bhai finds out Master Sb is in the hospital and shows up there to pay the bill. I thought it was an act of goodwill or to show Master Sb he is the ‘better’ bhai but we learn later that it was anything but.
I know I was complaining about the lack of chemistry between Sajal and Ahmed Ali but I have to say their scenes in the kitchen and when he shows up to take food to the hospital seemed very convincing. Sajal was able to portray all the emotions Mushq was feeling really well. I could actually feel her happiness at the sight of Fahd, her distress at her father being unwell, guilt for being blamed for his troubles and her impatience to be with Fahd.
Fahd has become driver, delivery wala, electrician, male attendant , you name it. Cynical old me could not help wondering though how artificial his concern must be for the family and how hypocritical he was not to be giving his widowed mother a second thought while he is running around after Master Sb’s family. Anyways, he tells Mushq they need to take things slowly although she seems to be losing patience. It’s like Fahd wants to play a test match innings while Mushq is all out for a twenty 20!
I am not sure who was following the journey of the Rs.24,500 hospital bill more avidly – me or Thor ka desi bhai. Aslam Bhai pays the bill and we learn that he tells the receptionist that the bill has been paid by Dabbu Bhai. When Master Sb finds out, he is outraged and confronts Dabbu and throws the money back in his face. Dabbu shows up at Aslam Bhai’s and throws the money back at him and in that whole intense (not) scene all I seemed to notice was how Thor’s brother was eyeing the money. This Master Sb – khud tau ek angina attack ho gaya hai I am not sure if I will end up getting one watching the way he trembles and keels over every other second. The way he was oscillating up, down and everywhere in the scene where he confronts Dabbu, I wanted to fetch him a stretcher to collapse on!
