Ohkay just when I thought that the drama has gotten rational in terms of direction, the director proved me wrong & by all means I admit that this was another one of THOSE episodes that I enjoyed watching the most. ;)
Even though Areeba is counselling Arham continuously but their conversations make it a bit confusing as to how much time has lapsed between Arham-Narmeen’s breakup, Narmeen-Shahiq’s wedding & then Areeba-Arham wedding too? During the past scenes Narmeen’s mother suggests that her daughter should get married to Shahiq directly so I really couldn’t understand why Arham went into a shell because even after the whole ‘gunnah’ incident happened it looked like Shahiq got married just in a few days. So, I was just wondering why did Arham, at first, made it sound like it happened a few years ago & did he actually get the time to go into a deep seclusion because even after the incident happened, he is seen normal, going around to people’s places & fighting for himself, so I just want to know k usay chup kab lagi?
A little fails are obviously the spirit of the drama that’s why I couldn’t help notice Arham’s shirts changing, firstly a black one when he was at Narmeen’s to threaten her, later in the continuing scene when he was conversing with Shakeel, he was in white & blue & it was made to look like he was just coming back from Narmeen’s house & later when he is seen in his room on a praying mat, he is once again back to the black shirt which he wore in Narmeen’s home! I think he must’ve kept a change of clothes with him in the car, just to feel fresh, you know!
Shahiq who at first hated the idea of getting married actually yelled at Arham for going to her house? When did Shahiq start to have all those sympathies with Narmeen, I wonder. Now when he has gotten married to her, he has gone into a state of escape where he just likes lazing around wherever Narmeen is not present, lol! But I must say, I am getting bored of Mikaal Zulfikar’s up-tight personality & acting, he makes the character looks absolutely boring & his formal dressing up doesn’t help either.
Ohkay I once again couldn’t help noticing the background sound effect when Shahiq went to Narmeen’s place. I think there was no need to add that spooky music which later turned into a tabla, making it look like Narmeen’s mom will start belly dancing at the sight of Narmeen going away with Shahiq. That music was never heard before & doesn’t even belong to the theme tracks of the drama that we’ve heard. Sarah tells Arham & Areeba that the food is ready dressed in some green coloured suit but later at the dinning table, she is wearing grey. I wonder how does this family find a time & courage to change dresses in a jiffy? When Areeba enters the dinning room she says Asalam Alaikum & I think by the sight of rice, they were having a lunch already, so I guess Areeba must’ve said her Salams first thing in the morning while having breakfast, so was there a need of saying it again? That scene was worse-directed too because a few were already eating while the other’s plates were clean to the core. Narmeen’s changing hairstyles in this episode must get a special mention here too, from straight worn down hair to the side braid & then later in a continuing scene a complete back-combed braided hair…I mean was it really necessary for the crew of the drama to be paying attention to these hairstyles when there was not a substance in the drama itself?
What Areeba did & how she changed the situation was commendable, Narmeen definitely needs someone to play mind-games with her that too of the calibre she has, but I actually hated how Ayesha Khan looked in that scene, that smirk, that ramp walk-like modelling was just so annoying & later Shakeel sahab’s over-the-top acting made things a bit more PERFECT. I loved when he said to Areeba ‘mujhe tum pe yakeen hai’. Ya Allah! Mujhe yakeen pe hi yakeen nahi raha abb.
Shahiq has started to give Narmeen the idea of what he thinks of her, which definitely Narmeen needs the most but the best part was when she & her mother were busted. That was a one perfect moment in the series of comical perfect moments of this drama. I actually couldn’t understand that Narmeen who actually promised to make Shahiq fall in love with her was insulting him & his family straight away, I wonder how’s she going to earn that LURVE she is so keen to get?
Another one of those funny episodes which I loved & can’t wait to see more…;)
