Mol- Episode 3

I remember saying that we are not in a hurry and the writer should take some time to establish the relationship between Sheheryaar and Emaan but I think this episode was a little too slow and I didn’t find this episode as interesting as the last one probably because most of the scenes had a been-there-seen-that feel to them.

”Daftar mein aap meray afsar zaroor hain lekin yahan mein Emaan ka baap hoon.” The reactions of Imtiaz Sahab and his wife to Sheryaar’s proposal were very natural and easy to relate to. Emaan’s mother couldn’t be happier because it’s not every day a handsome DC asks for your daughter’s hand! Imtiaz Sahab has a lot more to fret over because the fact that Sheheryaar bluntly asked for his daughter’s hand, without his parents’ consent is obviously very troubling for a concerned father.

”Hamesha say kehna chahta tha magar aap loag meri baat suntay kab hain!” Sheheryaar has always come across as a straightforward man and therefore, I feel that he should have talked to his father about his lack of interest in Sajal way earlier because I think his silent gestures did little to convey the message. It was high time Sheheryaar confronted his father because the lack of communication between the two is getting them nowhere. The father-son conversation was not very different from what we see usually- first the tamheed- har insaan ko apnay faislay karnay ka haq hai, followed by the emotional blackmailing- tou ab humara tum par koi haq nahe raha and the parting note is always a piercing taunt- jab sab kuch khud teh kar lia hai tou hum say poochnay ka kia faida! I have to admit that the reaction of Sheheryaar’s father came off as a surprise because I was actually expecting him to fly off the handle but I appreciate the fact that he at least agreed to meet Emaan and her parents and trust me, I did not see that coming!

As much as I was looking forward to the conversation between Emaan and Sheheryaar, I felt that something was missing. I still think that they didn’t exactly manage to establish what led to Emaan’s change of heart. How many of you are ready to accept the fact that this special ‘hawa’ has done the trick? Emaan’s conversations with her sister always give us an insight into Emaan’s perception of the whole scenario and from whatever I could glean, Emaan is convinced of the fact that Sheheryaar is in love with her because he went has far as asking Imtiaz Sahab for her hand but the question remains: is our heroine in ‘love’ with Sheheryaar? I don’t think so!

”Agar mein Lila hoon tou Kunwar kaun hai?” Sajal? Emaan’s monologue actually put me off because this could lead to a dusri shadi scenario which I am definitely not looking forward to!

All in all, this was a decent episode and I am looking forward to what’s next to come. What do you think of the episode? Voice your views!
