Mirat-ul-Uroos Episode 18 – What Goes Around Comes Around

When Hamnah went out of her way to make Aima feel like a lesser human only because she did not have a grand wedding and her husband wasn’t earning enough to spend on Hamnah’s wedding, she had no clue that very soon she will be facing a very tough time in her own In Laws’ house because of this very reason. Although Hamnah’s parents did everything they could or more in order to pleaser her in laws but it was quite apparent right from the onset that Hamnah’s Husband and his mother were very materialistic. The way Hamnah’s Mother-in-law was being nice to Ayza on the wedding and totally ignored Aima went to show that the woman was very shallow. While Aima is trying very hard to be a good wife and Daughter in law in a very hostile environment, Ayza has everything going for her. Rather than trying to make things easier for her sister, Ayza only wants to make her stay in the house more comfortable by making sure that she lives up to the impression that she has made in her new house. Akbari gives Ayza’s parents a never-ending list of gifts which are to be given to every member of Ayza’s new family as part of the celebrations on the arrival of Ayza and Hammad’s son.

The post wedding discussion that took place right after Hamnah’s marriage was very relatable. Everyone shared how they felt about Hamnah’s In Laws and the conversation ended with Ayza’s “expert opinion”. Hashim’s attitude towards Aima today was beyond wrong and he really is turning out to be one of those people who cannot take responsibility for their own actions. I was surprised though that Aima did not see that coming because even before marriage Hashim was very careless.  I know many girls and boys though who know their fiancés or their spouse to be before marriage and think that all of the faults in them will magically go away once they get married. I think what is happening to Aima should serve as a good lesson for many girls out there who think that a man will change after marriage. I really like Aima’s character and feel for her too but it is partially her mistake too, she should not have expected Hashim to turn into a very responsible person solely because they were getting married. Hashim did nothing more than blame Aima for his troubles and treated her like a punching bag today. I really liked Aima’s discussion with Daddi, it is so good to know that there is someone in the house who understands her and with whom she can share things. I found it rather odd when Hashim and Aima were arguing with each other at the top of their voices…that is obviously something that is not possible in a joint family!

Rafia has such a soft heart when it comes to her own daughter but she does not stop to think for a second the effect her stone hearted attitude must be having on Aima. Even when Askari tries to make her realize that she was wrong in holding Aima responsible and for treating Hahsim and Aima as outsiders, she was not convinced at all.

Ayza’s advice to Hammad that he should not share the news about his new job with his parents went to show just how selfish Ayza is. I am waiting to see just how far this attitude of hers will take her because it is so wrong. The episode ended with Hamnah coming back to her parents, yet another car issue that needs to be resolved. Hamnah’s problems will serve as an eye opener for her family members and they will realize what parents go though when In laws demand such things from girls’ parents.

I am really looking forward to the next installment especially due to the scene between Hashim and Hamza….This drama definitely teaches young people out there some very valuable lessons if someone is paying attention. This episode was directed very well; in fact I think it was the best one so far as far as direction is concerned. All the scenes were short and to the point and there was no repetition whatsoever. Definitely looking forward to more.

Fatima Awan has been a part of reviewit right from its inception. She feels very passionately about Pakistani dramas and loves discussing them in detail. An enthusiastic writer, thinker, and political scientist, constantly trying to look beyond the obvious. Full-time mom.

  • Shadi Aur Gari ka elawa is dramay ma kuch ha b ya phir writer ko kahani ma kuch aur b dalana chaya ham drama daikhana chah rahay han na k repetitive lectures. Please move on. I am not going to watch this drama anymore.

    • Sidra, Shaadi is # 1 issue in Sub-continent for Parents and their daughters for centuries, and a very profitable business who provide everything for wedding ceremony all over the world.

        • Extremely sad & true, being a lesser child is not enough, Ultra Sound made it easy to get rid of this burden and the problem of dowry and wedding arrangements.

          • Fatima, Look around what is happening in Muslim countries. " Allah Ka Azaab" because we are not practicing Muslims, we deviate from the teachings of Quran. We are told that raising girls with love and care, leads Parents to Jannat. When Jannat is offered to us, we reject it without realising that ALLAH keeps His PROMISES.

          • Very true Nyla, Quran is an eye opener..everything is right there if you read the translation. Wishing for sons had been referred to in the Quran as being equivalent to the desire for "sona chandi" – wealth. I come from a family where daughters are valued so much primarily because of the reward Allah has in store for those who treat their daughters well. My father used to say that people who only wish for sons do not deserve to have daughters. He used to consider people who didn't have daughters unfortunate.

          • Fatima, what a surprise, my father valued his daughters more than his sons. After having 2 daughters I never tried for another child under the pressure from my in-laws. My husband never had any problem with this. He is a true believer, always consider his daughters Allah ki Rehmat. May Allah reward us & my father for it. I wish others learn from Quran too.

  • Loved the episode and the review:) I have myself seen so many people like Ayza and Hammad ,their selfish natures, competitive attitudes and greed. What amazes me is that they are also blessed as everything comes easy to them which is exactly how Umera has shown also like the job and baby boy. People who are nice and honest at heart tend to suffer more for achieving anything.

    • right even I have seen that thing.and even in family gathering/weddings people give more attention/admiration to ladies like Ayza.just because their husband is earning more and they are stylish.I am saying this based on my personal experience.People dont care how is their behaviour with their in-laws.

    • true ,so true, I have observed the same thing, but we have its answer in Quran k why its so? according to a Hadees. sab say zyada azmaish nabion k liye theen or uskay baad darja badarja insano k liye hain.
      Allah knows best.

    • Xenia I am glad you enjoyed the review, it is always great to hear from you:) You know the saying ke Khuda aisa logon ki raasi daraz rukhta hai to see just how far they can go! Like Mrs. Asim said Allah tests only those people who are closest to Him.

    • Xenia, Ayza and her grandmother are bad news and trouble makers, they created these bad situations, at least Hammad is working hard, making progress, trying to reach his goals, finanacially supported his large family and sister's marriage. He is not like Hashim who left his job, when Aima started working, telling lies about his job to get married for Aima's salary expecting a dowry like Aima's sister, pressurizing others to provide a life style like Hammad, no job is good enough for him. Excuse my language, Hashim would be called " Hud- Haraam" in our society. No sensible girl 'll marry a person like Hashim. What has he done so far to earn respect from any one except showing, greed, frustration & anger. Aima, her Parents & Asghari are the only people, " who are nice & honest at heart " being victimized. I think the next victim is Farhan.

    • Meri Dulari was aired on Wednesday……Mirat ul Uroos will be telecasted only on Thurdsay

  • thanks for the great review Fatima, this play is an eye opener as u have rightly said. m forgetting now it was u or I read in a comment that Aima should have started her job while Hashim was asking her,and that it would have earned her respect in her new home. Aima herself replied it and its too correct that in the given situation it would have been a wrong decision, n her inlaws also want Hashim to work . I often wonder that how our feelings and thinking r different for a daughter and a daughter in law and a sister and sister in law!! Asghari is as wise as real MTU Asghari:). really loved ur analysis.

    • I absolutely agree with you Mrs. Asim on the point that there are certain rules for your own daughter but definitely different for your daughter in law. If Hamnah would've faced such a situation which Aima is facing & if she had to hear the taunts & stuff I am sure it would've been Rafia who would've reacted in favour of her daughter & against her in-laws in a jiffy but now when Aima & Hashim are financially unstable she has a certain level of how they shall be treated. Rafia is a typical saas. WOW!

    • I agree with you ,MTU Asghari is my all time favourite since I was kid, kind of role model for every girl.

    • Mrs. Asim Thank you for always taking time out to read the reviews and for commenting, it really means a lot to me. No I never suggested that Aima should work, in fact I think it is good for Hashim and her that she doesn't because if she starts working hashim will probably never step out of the house. Yes I really like Asghari's character too:)

  • Aims should do the job while some body need to teach a lesson to humnahs sas it's very easy when they ask to bring some thing Hanna ask back some other thing from her husband then see what happen point is this she does not stand up insight her heart she want those things it's a best drama lesson for new coming generation good going

  • I really felt bad for aima in this episode. Har taraf say har shaks uss kay saath nainsafi kar raha hai. jab aima/hashim financially secure ho jaein gay tou sab ka attitude meetha ho jaye ja. yeh munafqat hai.

  • Finally, Aima has gotten a chance to earn the respect from each & every person in the house & that is by buying the car for Hamnah that her husband is demanding. I am sure she will do it because she has a sacrificing nature plus she is not at all materialistic that's why she will use the amount of car she has for herself & that will shut everyone's mouth against her. I am sure.

    But I hate to see Aima suffering because it's a norm that people tend to oppress those who're weak. No body can utter a word in front of Ayza because not only she has slapped material on everyone at every occasion but everyone knows she always puts her opinion & verdict quite strongly, whereas Aima tends to absorb all the negativity easily that's why they all are rude with her. Can't wait to see how Hamnah will beg for her forgiveness.

    • Aima is stupid paying to blackmail. She was under pressure from everyone to do it. Good girl made a bad chioce knowing, that Hashim was nothing but a lazy bum & a parasite. " Khud Karda Ra Elajey Neest"

      • haha lols @ lazy bum. I know, he's good-for-nothing type of a husband who only knows how to pressurize people around him. I hope things turn out to be better for Aima ASAP!

        • I also think that Aima should not and most probably will not help Hamnah buy the car because that is not the solution to her problems. I fully agree with Mrs. Asim I think now that Hamnah is probably there to stay Ayza will not be happy with it and Aima will be there for her and that is how she will win her over. hamnah will realize just how fake Ayza is and how genuine Aima is.

          • Even though that money belongs to Aima but like we have heard Rafia & many others say that Aima should've used it during Hamnah's wedding & while watching the preview of next episode, it was pretty evident that the hot topic for taunting would be the amount of money Aima has in her bank account. Don't worry ladies, it was my personal opinion & something that I think might happen.

          • Zahra we are all guessing and It was always great to hear from you so keep the comments coming. we are all here to share our opinions:) I just think that it would be totally out of character for Aima if she buys Hamnah the car…but you never know so your guess is as good as mine:) Thank you so much for reading the reviews and for taking time out to comment.

          • You're always welcome. To me it seems that's the only thing Aima can do to prove herself in the eyes of greedy in-laws (except Asghari) because they have been keeping an eye on her money like hawks & I am sure if she chooses a long way to impress everyone with her attitude, it won't change a thing but this gesture will. So let's see. :)

          • I would advise Aima to spend a little bit of the car money on her wardrobe , get some decent cotton professional looking dresses and start her job again. But not give any of her pay to her hubby or inlaws as she is their responsibility not them hers. Atleast she should get out of the depressing and hostile susral environment , spend a little on herself and be happy and learn to stand on her feet rather than building expectations from everyone:)
            but that's me and Aima is too seedhi saadhi haha:)

    • Aima should not be that stupid to buy a car for hamnah because she should know the next demand will of of banglow from hamnas in-laws. If she had that car money that is totally her. She should not use it for any one else except her kids, not even for that lazy hashim

      • Totally agree with you Sidra:) Aima should be smart enough to know that.
        Zahra once again you have an entirely different thought perspective:)

    • hmmm may be ,but I dont expect her to be that stupid really, and then it wudnt be a right decision generally speaking. I think Aima's good behaviour should be enough to change Hamna's attitude. coz its hard for bhabies to bear a nand in home after nand's marriage;)

  • I totally agree with her review.Thats how we lead double standard life in our society.It is unfortunately as a society we made marriages burden rather than blessing.I am sure that every girl who reach in her twenties share the same experience.In a way it is lesson for Aima that when you go for marriage contract it should not be decide on emotion.Though it is good and realistic story.
